[edit] Information

James Cracknell and Ben Fogle trek deep into the Empty Quarter of the Arabian Desert in the footsteps of explorer Wilfred Thesiger. Part 1. They train with Bedouin tribesmen and, with only four grumpy camels for company, push themselves and their friendship to the limit. Part 2. After only four days they are already behind schedule, with increasingly angry camels. As they try and pick up the pace, disaster strikes and Ben suffers a serious injury. The delays that follow allow them to reflect on their friendship, but when they begin again things aren't any easier. The trip and their relationship are stretched to breaking point as they battle sandstorms and boiling temperatures to follow in Thesiger's footsteps.
