The mid-1950s world through which the original expedition drove – in which WW2 was a recent memory, the Soviet Union was still expanding, and Britain clung on to its Southeast Asian empire – seems unrecognisable today.
Through the eyes of two very different generations of adventurers, and the incredible people they meet along the way, The Last Overland will uncover how much the world has really changed.
Some countries on the original route are now impassable for security reasons (e.g. Syria, Iraq and parts of Pakistan), so a new path has been plotted for The Last Overland – telling a fascinating new story.
