This is the special extended edition DVD release of Long Way Round. This 3 disc set compiles all 10 of the extended series episodes and contains a number of never before seen extras.
One of the successes of 2004, Long Way Round tells the story of Ewan McGregor and Charley Boorman's extraordinary journey around the world the "Long Way Round". Departing from London on 14th April 2004 the pair travelled through Europe, Ukraine, Russia, Kazakhstan, Mongolia, Siberia, Alaska, Canada arriving in the USA just over 3 months later. Along the way the intrepid pair encountered Kalashnikov-toting gangsters and extreme cuisine, survived numerous motorised scrapes often whilst traversing non existent roads days from the nearest hospital and found themselves alarmingly close to a hungry grizzly bear. They arrived at their final destination, New York, on 29th July and this DVD release tells the story from the eyes of the two film stars.
Divided into the 10 one hour Sky One extended episodes including an entirely new episode 10, the triple DVD also features a number of extras including unseen and extended footage of the biking boys most memorable moments, photo gallery, extended post trip interview, interview with the series creators and additional information such as technical details of the bikes and itinerary required for a journey of this magnitude.
