Have you ever been asked, "what would you bring with you if you were stuck on a desert island?" The answer should always be...Tom Bán.

He is our man of the wild in the new show Bush Kids - weekdays on RTÉ2 and RTÉ Player at 3.50pm!

Tom Bán is from Tipperary and spent most of his time growing up hunting, fishing and spend countless hours outside exploring the landscape around him and learning local history.

Here he shows us how to call for help if we are in trouble in the wild...

On the RTÉ Kids YouTube channel we are sharing some of his bush skills, starting with the video up top on how to make a bowline knot!
