On a very cold sunny morning on thursday 18th October 2007, I went to the Long Way Down HQ to interview Charley Boorman re his and Ewan McGregor's latest trip - Long Way Down. I also got to see the motor bikes still covered in African mud!
Charley was very congenial though tired, and it was very obvious that he was very much still coming down from the adventure; but none the less he talked very enthusiastically about the trip and the charity projects (CHAS, UNICEF, Riders for Health) they were supporting.
I have only lightly edited the transcript. Enjoy!
VW: Charlie Boorman, Welcome back to the Bookfiend's Kingdom. It's been a whole year and you've done a whole load. This time we are going to talk about the Long Way Down.
