BY ANY MEANS
WITH CHARLEY BOORMAN
BBC / NatGeo
2008 / 2009
In this series, adventurer Charley Boorman undertakes an epic trip from Wicklow in Ireland to Sydney, Australia, travelling through Iran, Georgia, China and Nepal by any means. Through 25 countries and covering over 20,000 miles, Charley uses 112 different types of transport to make the trip, including Russian cars, Indian tuk-tuks, Thai elephants, London buses, tiny sailing boats and his very own custom-built motorbike.
The series features Charley making his way around the globe, meeting some fascinating characters on the kind of journey that takes us back to the days before commercial airlines made travel so easy and accessible. Charley visits UNICEF projects along the route to see the wonderful work that is being achieved by the charity across the world.
By Any Means was produced and directed by Russ Malkin for the BBC and was subsequently broadcast worldwide by National Geographic.
In the second season of the show, Russ and Charley ventured from Sydney to Tokyo by Any Means.
