Life of Pi Lifeboat Challenge - Mike Perham video

Life of Pi

Compiled by Jack Foley

TO mark the home entertainment release of Life Of Pi, which is available to own now on 3D Blu-ray, Blu-ray and DVD, we have video piece featuring Mike Perham, the youngest person to ever circumnavigate the globe by water, spending a mammoth 227 hours in a lifeboat – one hour for every day that the heroic Pi Patel was adrift.

The piece is interspersed with clips from the film and is quite amazing!

Volunteer crew from the RNLI charity were also on hand throughout his gruelling challenge to act as a real-life version of sea-faring Pi’s manual, showing him how to survive in all weathers and teaching him some of the tricks of their life-saving trade.

Life Of Pi is available on 3D Blu-ray, Blu-ray and DVD from April 29 and on digital platforms now from Twentieth Century Fox.<
