The show features Adrian EdmondsonMiles JuppNeil Morrissey and Robert Webb as four out-of-condition, out-of-their-depth businessmen on an out-of-control team-building exercise.

Shipwrecked in the Lake District, menaced by wildlife and with only a sausage between them, the unlikely explorers battle the elements and each other as corporate bonding descends into a hilarious carnival of squabbling, French cricket and cagoules.
