Man Versus Beast



John Fashanu


Unaired. Made by Granada for ITV1, 2003.


The title says it all, really: people versus animals in a series of contests based on things animals are really good at. We know this because the show was a British remake of an American format which did make it to air (albeit briefly). This version didn't - it was filmed, promoted, scheduled and then suddenly pulled a mere two days before it was due to air for the first time. Presumably the whole series still exists in a tin somewhere in Granada's cavernous vaults of doom, but nobody has ever seen it except some people at ITV, all of whom have since disappeared in mysterious circumstances (perhaps).


"Man Versus Beast will be shown at a later date."


Based on the FOX TV format of the same name.
