===I Shouldn't Be Alive - Show General Information===
This show aired from October 2005 until March 2007. The show is very appropriately titled as it tells the stories of people who have encountered horrific events while cheating 'certain' death.
In each episode the victims narrate while actors re-enact the events. I have found all of the re-enactments to be very well done, leaving me quite impressed with the directors and producers. As these dramas unfold you will find yourself glued to the screen. Many of the events these poor souls encountered are what the rest of us have nightmares about.
===Message To Downloaders===
I apologize for the slow upload rate when Series 1 was listed a couple of days ago. There was trouble with UTorrent and I did everything possible to resolve it, including creating a thread in the forums requesting help. The issue is now resolved and I believe this series will seed much quicker. I actually have a fast connection. Thanks for your patience.
NOTE: Series 3 will follow in a couple of days.

Episode 5 - Lost At Sea (9th Jun. 2006
Two friends, looking to repair their relationship with their fathers, plan a fishing trip in Mexico. An unexpected storm forces them to ditch their plane in the sea during a storm. One son, the pilot, now questions his decision to purchase inexpensive life jackets for the trip. Amongst their many obstacles are the numerous ocean predators that frequent these waters and they don't even know if a 'Mayday" call was received.
Episode 6 - Crash In A Volcano (16th Jun. 2006)
Three men, filming a volcano in their helicopter, crash after losing control and get trapped in the crater of the active volcano. Narrowly missing the lava flow during the crash, they now find themselves breathing the deadly gasses while they are surrounded by an un-climbable ridge. After trying to hike out they realize their only hope is for one of them to venture back to the site of the crash, where the deadly gasses are at their worst, to try and repair the radio. Rescue attempts are hampered by lava, toxic gases and bad weather, and with visibility from the fumes so poor they become separated and as each man hangs off the side of the crater wall, he thinks the others are dead.
Episode 7 - Lost In The African Bush (23rd Jun. 2006)
Five survivors of a private plane crash must survive the dangers of the desolate African wilderness. With two severely injured and no food or water, some of the group must wander off to find rescue, even though there is no civilization for hundreds of miles.
