I am no photographer, but really enjoyed the photography. The narrator also did a good job as there are few films of that length I can sit through without moving on.Just watched it all the way through, brilliant photography. I love all the old truck videos of Middle East drivers etc and the pathe news transport related stuff. Thanks for putting it up .
I just bumped into it on youtube. When you consider that the trip was almost 60 years ago it is incredible that they managed it. The world was a different place 60 years ago, but Africa was a million years away from what it is now. The troubles in central Africa had not begun and many of the roads were uncharted. It was not much use ringing a man that can if you had a breakdown in those days. The AA would have a hell of a job getting to you on a motorbike and sidecar.Very interesting - where did you find it? There are similar adventure holidays in South America over several months in comparable vehicles, with spades, ropes etc hanging off them. But this lot were very enterprising. However, if you can whip off and refurbish a cylinder head overnight, the world must be your oyster!! I particular enjoyed seeing the Renault Dauphine in Algiers! The guys were so self sufficient and inventive, and had very little support. They were brave to undertake the journey!
