The fearless contestants are in Bhutan, preparing for a huge archery grudge match, so fierce that it has not been repeated for 40 years. The boys are split into two teams and housed 3.5km apart in villages either side of a steep valley.
Bhutanese archery involves the use of bamboo bows and firing at a target 140m away.
The boys’ lacklustre arrow skills fail to impress the trainer, Passang, so their nerves are settled with a bit of local betel nut and by invoking the wisdom of the local astrologer.
During the match, the local girls try to distract the athletes with some taunting dance routines and Jarvis joins in with some trash talk.
