Long Way Down - Episode 1
Ewan and Charley prepare for the ride. Check the maps, consider the potential dangers of the trip, engage in hostile training exercises, check the kit they will be taking, apply for visas and finally set off from John O Groats. Music begins to provide an atmospheric soundtrack to the journey : Sheila Chandra accompanies the bikes through breathtaking Scottish mountain scenery and Martyn Bennett's "Move" provides the high energy backing to guys as they race round Silverstone track in the rain!
Double CD released December 3rd. Thirty tracks follow the intrepid bikers on their journey south from John O'Groats to South Africa.
