I was interested in this series being just one of the many hundreds, perhaps thousands, of people who traveled the overland trail from the UK to Australia from the late 70's onwards. Most of us did it without a map or guide book, little money or backup. The attitude of Charlie and his crew commenting on the 'primitive' conditions were laughable to those of us with a lot more experience of the Third World. This series would be interesting to armchair travelers but after a while it seemed that the actual traveling took precedence over the places visited. Some interesting locations were only worth a minute or so while shots of Charlie mugging for the camera quickly became boring. Overall, an interesting idea but it came across as simply a piece of self indulgence.
