Three months, fifteen thousand miles, and two continents covering some of the world's most inhospitable terrains by motorcycle may have smacked of the impossible. But Ewan McGregor and Charley Boorman have just completed this epic journey. Travelling the Long Way Down through Europe and Africa, the pair have defied the elements, crossing the finishing line today in Cape Town, South Africa. Since those first miles in May 2007 in John O'Groats, Scotland, they have ridden through twenty countries, including Libya, Ethiopia, Sudan, and Rwanda. They have encountered and negotiated blinding sandstorms, searing temperatures, dodgy border crossings and extreme riding conditions. In the struggle to keep on schedule, staying on course and staying in touch has been essential and Nokia has played a pivotal role providing the Nokia 6110 for GPS navigation, map checking, web searches, documenting video, and those all important calls back home. The Long Way Down has been an amazing journey and it has been a real privilege to be able to experience these diverse and beautiful places. We've had the opportunity to see such different ways of life to ours and have travelled to remote places very few people have access to. The sense of freedom and exploration has been incredible." says Ewan. "We were both up for an adventure and Africa has certainly given us that," says Charley. "There have been times when it has been unbelievably hard going but that has been countered by amazing riding and extraordinary people. Africa is a country full of undiscovered wonder and we both feel incredibly lucky we've been able to experience this together and to have survived with some brilliant stories to tell." Ewan and Charley have been accompanied during the trip by a camera operator and both have worn cameras fitted to their helmets to capture the trip from the rider's perspective. The pair have supported UNICEF, CHAS and Riders for Health on their travels. A video report from Nokia

American ex-pat Ruby Wax left the US 30 years ago to attend RADA in London and never came home. She's been hosting versions of her brash, funny talk shows for years. In this she dines and chats with Ewan McGregor and Eddie Izzard. She has a tendency to make her shows more all about her than most interviewers but she also leads the discussions into interesting places so I forgive her that.
