Storyline

From the producers of "Touching the Void", the show features accounts of individuals and groups caught in dangerous scenarios, presented both through interviews and dramatic reenactments. The main focus is how the survivors survived and the decisions they made that kept them alive; not who survived and who died. Written by Anonymous

Absolutely outstanding show
20 June 2015 | by jacobtinsdaleSee all my reviews

While some of the acting is not that great, 'I Shouldn't be Alive' is an amazing show, that tells dramatic and thrilling stories of people that have been in some of the worst imaginable situations.

I have seen some films where people have gone through situations like this (for example, 'Touching the Void' and 'The Beckoning Silence'), but the fact there was a TV show about these sort of things is incredible.

So like I said before, some of the acting is pretty terrible, but aside from that is it really just an amazing show.

9.5 / 10
