A Survivor for techno-geeks, the cable-TV series Escape From Experiment Island recruited its contestants from several of the top colleges in the U.S. and the U.K. Two teams of four players were stranded on an uninhabited Scottish island, where they were obliged to use their technical ingenuity to meet various challenges and, ultimately, engineer an escape to the mainland. As the series progressed, the contestants transformed cars into sea vessels, employed vegetables to power a dead radio, and utilized household detergents to create a signal flare. A co-production of Britain's BBC and America's TLC, Escape From Experiment Island made its U.S. television debut on January 8, 2003.
