Adventurer and filmmaker Alex Bescoby recounts his epic and life-defining ‘mother of all road trips’, driving an original 1955 Land Rover from Singapore to London. He tells of an extraordinary journey across 13,000 miles and 23 countries – a recreation after more than half a century of the Oxford and Cambridge Far Eastern Expedition of 1955–56, a truly remarkable undertaking. Through the experiences of two very different generations of adventurers, and the incredible people they meet along the way, he uncovers how much the world has changed, but also what unites us and remains universal.
