    You need to get yourself an editor with good sound functions and use compression and perhpas a noise gate. Also filter frequencies above and below the voice spectrum.

    Though its pricey, I have had a lot of luck using Adobe Sound Booth and auditions Myself, using only the simpler functions. You could perhaps get a free demo trial of it.

    'Fixing it in the mix' is not really the way to go. What you need to do is actually capture good audio to start with. If you are doing some action type stuff, then a head-worn mic might be the way forward.

    Do you have an example?

    There is a free program called Audacity which is very nice and is open source. I use it to do some of my audio editing. Anyway I would try using it and using the noise remover plug-in with it, it also has the compressor you would probably need.

    Not a hope in hell - no chance - zilch - zero - nada.

    Given that i couldnt even hear nay talking most of the time the noise is so bad, I would say it's a lost cause.

    Agree with Mark. Imagine you've mixed a can of green paint with a can of red and now you want to use it to paint a wall red.

    That sound is great atmosphere. Reduce it somewhat and add a voiceover.

    Reduce the noise level, maybe put in some music at a low level and do a voice over from what you can remember saying during the video. That's probably the best way to go instead of spending days trying to rescue the original soundtrack.
