By Any Means
Long Way Down Productions, 2008
Popular motorbike adventurer Charley Boorman went solo for his latest series which saw him travel from London to Sydney ‘by any means’. He used local transport of every shape, size and speed to travel overland through Europe and Asia. Nick Ray travelled with Charley and the crew from the Lao border via the Mekong River and the temples of Angkor to the Thai border at Poipet. Transport included a rocket boat to Stung Treng, dirt bikes over to Angkor, a temple safari at Beng Mealea, an ox cart and a trip on the bamboo train. Cambodia was the highlight of the whole trip for Charley and the rocket boat one his favourite forms of transport. Nick Ray also features extensively in the show, as he and Charley make their way across the country. Hanuman Films provided all film production services for the film crew.
