Sydney to Tokyo by Any Means

GlobeLooking at this week’s television schedules, I noticed that the next Charley Boorman ‘By Any Means’ series is starting tonight.

In this series, Charley travels from Sydney to Tokyo, and in tonight’s programme:

The first episode sees Charley leaving Sydney with a huge biker convoy in tow as he travels up the east coast of Australia, meeting all sorts of unique characters along his way. He travels in a replica spitfire, tries his hand at cattle mustering on horseback, and even gets bitten by a snake. Always heading north with Tokyo in sight, Charley gets a feel for the true Australia in his endearing and jovial way.

The latest series is essentialy a sequal to a similar series broadcast this time last year – Ireland to Sydney by Any Means. Its a series I enjoyed watching and showed Charley travelling through many different countries on different types of local transport – a great way to experience different cultures.

Episode 1 will be broadcast on BBC  tonight at 9pm – excluding analogue viewers in Northern Ireland and Wales. It will be also be shown on Monday night (for viewers in England, Northern Ireland and Wales) and Tuesday night (for viewers in Scotland).

If you live in an area which will be broadcasting a different programme at this time, you can watch online (the live stream shows BBC 2’s England output); by law, you MUST hold a UK TV licence to use this service.

You can also watch online for 7 days after broadcast via the BBC iPlayer.
