Travelling across the West coast of Scotland, Trevor, Thom and Tim discover a mushroom farm and attempt to grow their own before abandoning their trusty campervan for a night on a nearby island – but they have to get their first! Making a raft, battling with insects, and tasting their home brewed beer doesn’t quite make for the enjoyable adventure the boys were hoping for.

Blagging their way up the coast of Scotland, the Three Hungry Boys test their charm by talking their way on to a Highland Estate. Working as estate hands their chores quickly become competitive, while their reward of living it up with a day’s fly-fishing becomes a hard fought contest to decide who cooks the evening meal.

Halfway through their month long holiday, the Three Hungry Boys arrive on the sunny island of Tiree where they head straight for the surf.

On their quest to holiday on the West Coast of Scotland for an entire month (without spending a penny), Trevor, Thom and Tim resort to manual labour in exchange for a boat trip to Fingals Cave, for some wild swimming with a basking shark. Back on dry land they work at a farm for some local produce, and their adventure side kicks in when they go canyoning down a river on the Isle of Mull.

Trevor, Thom and Tim venture to the Isle of Mull, where a Mussel foraging trip ends in disaster. After some quick thinking, work at the local farm rewards them with some produce to blag their way onto a yacht, at the local Regatta, and they boldly seek new ingredients by challenging one of the island’s top chefs to a cook off with the most unpalatable of shellfish… limpets.

Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall (from River Cottage), has challenged three marine biologists, Trevor, Thom and Tim, to live off the land and holiday for an entire month, without spending a penny. Hugh has given the boys a campervan filled with fuel, some very basic rations, a ferry pass to navigate the western isles, and set them loose in one of the richest natural larders of the British Isles… the West Coast of Scotland. If you thought foraging was about picking a few berries then think again, the boys were able to work for food but never for money and they left no stone unturned as they travelled through Oban, Mull, Tiree, Fort William and Ardnamurchin in their quest to survive.

Prime’s 2011 season launch includes more from their steady accumulation of programming assets that has helped the channel to successive years of 30%+ growth and unlike TV2, there are new local shows on the cards.  You probably won’t be seeing much of that NZ On Air logo at the ends of their credits either.
