I always enjoy watching these videos, they're incredibly relaxing. This particular build was very impressive, and honestly from the appearance of the hut I would say "primitive" isn't the most accurate adjective!
The "primitve" part of it mostly refers to the fact that all he brings into the forest is
All his tools and materials are sourced from the wilderness.
One day I'm sure he'll make his own pair of pants from plant fiber.
Yeah, he's basically progressed from utilizing mostly stone-age technology to Roman technology now. :P
Although apparently there is evidence of fired clay bricks being created in central China as far back as the middle neolithic era. So despite the hut's architecture being relatively modern, it's still pretty "primitive" underlying technology, all things considered.

There was rumour a little while ago of John doing a TV show, but I'm not sure what - if anything - came of that.
Feels like a very BBC Four kind of project. They've done that kind of thing before. Them or NHK.
Primitive Technology has a certain something that the other channels in this vein don't quite have. He always makes me wish I had access to some land where I could go out and try stuff like that - but then I realize that I'm too sensitive to things like bugs and I'd just hate it. Guess I'll just watch vicariously from my nice chair in my house...
