Information
------------------------------

In the spirit of Marco Polo Journeys to the Ends of the Earth follows photojournalist David Adams as he seeks out some of the remotest regions on the planet.


1) Afghanistan - In Search of the Lost Buddhas
Adams hitches a ride with the Taliban to cris-cross Afghanistan: a country where few westerners dare to go. He finally reaches the Bamiyan Buddhas, just before they are destroyed.


2) Iran - People of the Flame
Adams travels the Iranian wilderness in search of the Zoroastrians, an ancient people who have tended a holy flame for the last 1500 years.


3) Pakistan - The Road to Shangri-La
Adams crosses the high mountains of Northern Pakistan in search of Shangri-La, immortalised by James Hilton in his classic Lost Horizons.


4) Kamchatka - The Forbidden Zone
A journey through the arctic extremes of a primeval world; through the youngest landscape on the planet....across Far Eastern Siberia in search of some of the Cold War's darkest secrets - a journey to the beginning of the Earth.


5) Peru - The Lost City of Gold
Adams climbs the lonely Peruvian highlands to seek an Inca artefact that has never been found: The Golden Disk of the Sun. He finds the uncharted remains of an Incan ruin.


6) Bolivia - The Last Trail of Butch and Sundance
Adams follows the long lost trail of two of the most wanted men in history: Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid. His path leads him through the Bolivian Andes.


7) Cambodia - The Lost World of the Khmer Rouge
Year Zero. The Killing Fields. Preserved by war in the isolated and forbidding final refuge of the Khmer Rouge are tantalising hints of the "Asian Unicorn", the khting vor. David Adams journeys through the dark side of Cambodia in search of this semi mythical beast.


8) Georgia - In Search of Jason and the Argonauts
From the Black Sea to the Caspian, from former-soviet Georgia to Azerbajan, a quest for the Golden Fleece through the powder keg of modern day Caucasia.


9) Niger - The Land of Fear
Adams travels across the simmering heat of the Sahara with a Tuareg caravan, haggles for a pillar of salt and skis down the biggest sand dune in the world. This is the Land of Fear.


10) Libya - The Ancient Chariots of Libya
A vast desert country veiled from the East by fear, prejudice and misunderstanding. Adams follows in the wheel tracks of Ancient Rome's "chariots of fire" - the first wheeled vehicles to explore the Sahara and discover a little-known land of exotic brilliance, ancient cities and forbidding deserts.


11) Ethiopia - Keepers of the Lost Ark
Adams makes the pilgrimage from Lalibela to Gonder in the northern wilds of Ethiopia, and paddles by papyrus kayak across Lake Tana. His quest: to find the Ark of the Covenant.


12) Kenya - Swahili Sinbads
Adams sails by dhow from Lamu to Zanzibar, stopping off on the beaches of East Africa to haggle and barter for his sea passage. Sinbad lives again.


13) Sudan - The Mystery of the African Pharaohs
Adams crosses the vast northern Sudanese desert and sails down the Nile all the way to Khartoum. Along the way he finds the pyramids of Meroe, silent sentinels to a long lost civilisation.
