BY ANY MEANS is a 6×60 minutes BBC adventure series with Charley Boorman traveling from Sydney to Tokyo. He looks at different forms of transport, wins insights into many cultures and discovers little known corners of the world.

Production Notes:

The whole expedition lasted 3.5 months. We worked in a 4 man team during the filming and several editing teams organised the post-production back at base in London. Good editors are always essential for good documentaries. Their skills and efforts contribute at least 70% to the success of such a big series.
