The last stage of his 'By Any Means' challenge brought to a close three months on the road travelling 'By Any Means' from Wicklow in Ireland to the Botanical Gardens in Sydney's iconic Harbour. By Any Means, the brainchild of Boorman and Russ Malkin, has seen a three-man crew pass through 24 different countries and travel 21,132 miles (33,811 km) since April on more than 100 different modes of transport. Boorman, Malkin and cameraman Mungo have filmed every step of the voyage, which will be made into a six-part TV series to be shown in the UK on BBC Two from September and on the National Geographic Channel globally in the New Year. Gritty adventurer Boorman underwent rigorous training in preparation for the journey, having set himself the challenge to travel from Ireland to Sydney through extremely diverse countries and cultures by many different modes of transport other than commercial aircraft. The countries visited include Turkey, Georgia, Azerbaijan, Iran, India, Nepal and Indonesia with forms of transport ranging from trains to container ships, dugout canoes, cement barges and solar cars, with Boorman ending the adventure on his best-loved form of transport - the motorcycle.
