"so let's lower the suspension,

fit very low profile tyres."

They didn't think that in so many words,

but when you design a Volvo,

you design it for everything.

It doesn't look at home, does it?

That looks at home.

That looks at home on the M4

in the outside lane,

too close to the car in front,

being driven by an embittered

toner distribution manager.

He's right.

Let's be honest.

That's going to beach.

It's not. It is!

'As we argued, a challenge arrived.'


Thank you.

"You will find

the source of the River Nile."

That's it? That's it.

So we're Livingstone, Burton and Speke!

Yes, we are.

And I have the right car!

Come on, for exploring.

If Livingstone was still alive...

He's not, is he?

No. Ken Livingstone is,

but it's not Ken Livingstone.

If the other, explorer Livingstone

bloke were alive,

he would drive a Subaru Impreza WRX estate.

Yeah, but Speke, my favourite of all

the Victorian explorers, Beemer man.

Was he? Yeah.

So do we just go that way?

Well, do you know,

I'd head downhill, personally.

No, no, uphill!

Right, uphill.

Looking for the source of a river, uphill.

Here we go.

The source of the...

The source of the River Nile.

The Nile, the longest river in the world.

A mighty 4,000-mile ribbon

of year-round water,

running from the heart of Africa

to the Mediterranean Sea,

bringing life and sustenance to millions.

Finding its source has occupied the minds

and claimed the lives of explorers

for thousands of years.

Roman legions, Arab traders,

the Victorian British.

All have forged a path through

the fast heat of this awe-inspiring

continent to find where the raging

torrent came from.

And today, we would join that

illustrious band of brothers.

We would take up the challenge

no matter what the perils,
