A 3,500 mile adventure around India in a Morgan 3-Wheeler. Drivers Alan and Pat Braithwaite, along with documentary-makers Peter Brill and David Campbell, share their experiences of India's roads, culture, people and one extraordinary organisation - Goonj.
This episode focuses on the work of Goonj - including the Cloth for Work Scheme and visits to schools, farming projects and a tribal craft and dance centre. There's also an update about progress on repairing a slightly sickly Queen Bee.
A temporary setback for Queen Bee as she falters just a few kilometres from the end of Leg One. The team is in a race against time to get Queen Bee buzzing again. But there is also positive news for the Challenge as a whole.
750 miles into the Challenge and a new driver, rough roads and rural landscapes. Goonj Founder, Anshu Gupta talks about his first rural experience and how it ultimately led to founding Goonj. Lastest Queen Bee driver, Peter Brill, talks about the experience. And the rough roads take a toll on the car.
The final days before departure from Mumbai have been a time of putting last minute details in place, meeting the media, hearing some final thoughts from the family and preparing the car...if only customs would let us get it out if its container!
The night before their departure from Heathrow to Mumbai, Documentary Director David Campbell, and Communications Director Peter Brill discuss expectations, challenges and rules of the road, ahead of the 3,500 mile road trip with Alan and Pat Braithwaite and the Morgan 3-Wheeler.
As the team makes its final preparations before heading to Mumbai, the Grandson of Henry Morgan, the CEO of Morgan Motors and the man who built the Challenge car single-handed share their thoughts on the brand, the car and the road ahead.
Alan Braithwaite gets up to speed with just weeks to go; documentary director, David Campbell, on cables not clothes; and Goonj Founder Anshu Gupta's views on how the Challenge will help Goonj deliver its message of development with dignity.
An introduction to an extraordinary adventure. One car, two drivers, three wheels and 3,500 miles around India. Follow the journey of Alan and Pat Braithwaite as they encounter fascinating people, visit some of India's most famous landmarks and, most importantly, discover more about the work of Goonj - an organisation that is encouraging major transformations in rural Indian communities with the help of recycled urban textiles and other discarded products.
