Could you out run some of the UK’s finest surveillance if you had too? And to what lengths would you go to outsmart and out manoeuvre them? Fugitive or not, you’re going to have to think outside of the box and really cover your tracks, as in today’s society, are we really free from ‘Big Brothers’ eye?

Well, you don’t have to think about it too much because the chief TV producers at Channel 4 have set a mission for a select fourteen average people to escape twelve surveillance experts from the UK in a matter five weeks, so how will they do it? No phones, no family, no friends and no credit cards; can the prey really escape the predator? Or will the power of authority overrule once again?

Check out this trailer to see what the show is really all about…

So, tonight at 9PM, tune in to Channel 4 and witness the adventure unfold. A group of mock fugitives are truly going under the radar to beat the system. From camping, to running and everything in between, it will be both survival of the fittest and survival of the smartest. Is our society really as free as we think it is? We’ll find out soon enough!
