Documentary following the cycling adventure of two friends in Asia. The Tibetan region of China is an area few are able to experience - a remote place of extraordinary beauty but challenging to travel to and through. Yet after a lot of careful planning that's exactly what Scottish cyclist Magnus Graham did. From the contrast of the busy urban China life to the remote rural mountain life so rarely seen, to the challenges of cycling a laden bike on snowbound and icy mountain roads at almost 5000m, it proved to be Magnus's most challenging cycle to date. Meanwhile, further south, his friend Daibhidh Martin cycled from near the Vietnam border and came up through Laos to eventually meet Magnus in the north of the country, where they planned to travel together through remote jungle areas. With temperatures up to 40 degrees, Daibhidh had his own challenges to overcome before the two of them met up.
Documentary exploring the art of whistling and its origins. Whistling has been part of people's lives the world over, and is in fact the most international of all languages. For some it's a hobby, while for others it's a means to making a living. The ancient whistling language Silbo Gomera can be found in La Gomera in the Canary Islands. It was originally used by farmers to communicate from village to village in the island's valleys in the days before telephones. Although once thought to be dying out, the language is now enjoying a revival and is now taught in school.
