WITHOUT LIMITS: VIETNAM
BBC Two, Thursday, 8pm
AS PROSTHETIC legs are loaded into a 4x4 and riders missing limbs rev up their Communist-era motorbikes, one-armed biker Andy exclaims: ‘We must look like the circus has come to town!’
This unique group of travellers – six people with different disabilities – are on an epic journey of almost 900 miles through Vietnam, a country still suffering the legacy of war with a high incidence of disability from unexploded ordnance.
Although shadowed by film and safety crews, the group are in charge of their own destiny as they navigate the route in a country ill-equipped for disability.
