    Hunted, the hit Channel 4 show in which willing participants go on the run for 28 days to evade capture, is looking to the business community to take part in the new series…

    The new year is well underway, inboxes and diaries are filling up and the Christmas break may already feel like a distant memory. As directors will understand better than most, ‘breaks’ rarely mean that anymore. We’ve all read the articles advocating ‘digital detoxes’, the wonders of the four-hour week and heard rumours about just how liberating switching off emails at 5.30pm on a Friday can be. But most of us stop there – we read, smile, and think ‘it’s alright for some.’

    Well, if your New Year resolution is to at least try and find time to switch off once in a while, how about taking a slightly different kind of break in 2016?

    Channel 4’s hit TV show, Hunted, is returning for a second season and the production team is looking for high-flying business people to take part. The show sees willing participants, dubbed ‘fugitives’, forced on the run for 28 days as they try to evade capture by a crack team of surveillance experts, former police officers and spooks. Armed with a little cash and whatever belongings they can carry round with them, ‘fugitives’ must roam the UK, keeping a low profile and avoiding ‘hunters’ who have the latest in satellite technology and digital surveillance techniques at their disposal.

    This year, there’s an even greater incentive to evade capture, with a £100,000 prize to be shared among those who can survive four weeks on the run. Only a handful managed it last time, so if you think you’ve got what it takes, head over to huntedapplications.com before 24 January to apply.

    On the "run", in the country with the most CCTV cameras. Your movements followed. Who do you trust, anyone, no-one?

    Ever wonder what it would be like to disappear and go on the run? Do you think you could outsmart the hunters and evade capture?

    More reality crap and TV fodder i am afraid. Havn't we had enough of the reality rubbish? I have. I won't be watching it. I'd rather watch paint dry. ^_^

    I remember years ago. I decided to have a look at Big Brother to see what all the fuss was about, so i turned it on and sat back to watch. 5 minutes later i turned it off as all i saw was an empty silent room. The end. :laugh:

    You were lucky. If your timing was wrong you could have ended up watching some of the people that went in!!!

    I'd like to think I'd make half way at the least.

    I'd take a bike. As long as the hunters are driving around, they'll never see me.
