Accompanied by environmental writer Richard Scrase, Peter says goodbye to his loved ones and sets off for the continent. They want to be back in time to join the Brighton to London Eco-Rally on July 7th, but they have four weeks ahead of them, approximately 4500 miles and a wealth of extension leads and universal adaptors to get to grips with.
Sometimes BBC progs can be downloaded as podcasts so it may work outside the UK.
