Probably the most underrated tv documentary ever, "Long Way Round" is the epic 31,000 km journey that Ewen McGregor and his best mate Charley Boorman went on in 2004. They went from London to New York, a short distance, one might think, as they lie just across the Atlantic. But they took The Long Way Round, literally. Travelling East across Eurasia, Alaska and America, all that on two BMW Motorbikes. Its the stuff dreams are made of!!!
