Long Way Down - Episode 5
Ewan and Charley encounter some astonishing African landscapes and wildlife in this episode. After their struggle through the mud they finally hit the tarmac road in Kenya to the sounds of Tama. The rural acoustic music of Bernard Kabanda accompanied the boarder crossing into Uganda and the driving sounds of BT and Sasha lift off as they take the next crossing into Rwanda. Bernard Kebanda reprises as the team have an amazing face to face with the mountain gorillas. Rwanda's brutal massacres are remembered, followed by the music of Geoffrey Oryema's song 'The River'. Down the sandy rutted roads of Tanzania to the music of Zawose and Brook and the final credits role to The River once more.
