When they track them down it usually ends up as a foot race to catch them - good luck to the Hunters even if he is in his 50s....

Some years ago when he was on some celebrity fitness show I saw run 100m and he'd gone unbelievably slow even then.

He looked knackered when he was running but he is nearly 15 years younger than Henson

Having now watched the two episodes of the series so far (only because of the RL interest) it appears obvious to me that the whole scenario is just a set up to provide a supposedly interesting tv programme and that the hunters and hunted are just acting their parts with a somewhat prearranged script.

Close camera shots of both hunted/hunters are shown when they are running or at a resting place yet when a long distance shot is shown of them then no cameraman is seen  ie: While on a boat in Torquay harbour, the girl with Stanley Johnson went out to buy some food and then supposedly saw the hunter, who was shown in a long shot via the cameraman with her ... yet no cameraman was anywhere near the hunter in that shot. Yet close up shots of the hunter were frequently shown when there - so where did his cameraman disappear to  when the hunter was seen from a distance ?

The same happened near the start of episode 2 when the same couple were at New St station in Birmingham. They had separated yet both had a cameraman with them. However, when the girl saw Stanley Johnson and ran to him then again no other cameraman was near him.

Furthermore, as happened in the programme, if a total stranger came to you and asked to look through your phone, how many would just let them do it ?

Spolier alert ... for next week's episode the publicity for it says that Martin gets riled when the hunters target his statue. Why would anyone get too bothered about that when they know it's just part of a tv programme and the production company are hardly likely to damage it in any way ?

It's a bit of fun, Offiah and Henson are a bit of a comedy squabbling duo.

I get a bit annoyed by some of the production / rules too - for example, the hunters have great resources for locating the celebs but only have a couple of people actually chasing - but is a good watch for a good cause.


I can confirm 30+ less sales for Scotland vs Italy at Workington, after this afternoons test purchase for the Tonga match, £7.50 is extremely reasonable, however a £2.50 'delivery' fee for a walk in purchase is beyond taking the mickey, good luck with that, it's cheaper on the telly.

From memory they will go back to 're film' those types of shots.  

The hunt is all a bit set up anyway, they don't have access to CCTV, ANPR, bank accounts and the rest.  The face recognition stuff is overblown.  The 'hunted' have rules to follow too, or else they might actually just go off grid, they have to keep moving and have a target to make their way towards, which forces them into certain areas.  

It's a bit of fun at the end of the day and needs to be entertaining.  Someone hiding in a attic for 2 weeks probably wouldn't be that interesting! 


With the best, thats a good bit of PR, though I would say the Bedford team, theres, like, you know, 13 blokes who can get together at the weekend to have a game together, which doesnt point to expansion of the game. Point, yeah go on!

Oh yes, I totally agree with that ... it's like many tv programmes - if those in it just did what they would normally do then it wouldn't be worth watching. (Not that this really is worth it anyway !)

I think I've seen this show before. Is it the one where the losing contestants have their heads ripped off, and the hunters take their skulls and spines back to their home planet as trophies?

No this is the spin off.

first series of the normal hunted there was someone who just holed up in a shack in the highlands... now they have to keep moving.. 

they replicate the CCTV, ANPR etc by using the camermen and them telling the hunters every so often where they are when in real situations they would be caught bu the bank accounts, CCTV etc.. 

Things like taking £100 out of a cash point... who would do that in reality.. you'd take as much as possible out once and disappear.. 

as a show though it is fun.
