Long Way Down is a motorcycle journey undertaken by Ewan McGregor and Charley Boorman, on which they rode south through 18 countries from John o' Groats in Scotland to Cape Town in South Africa via Europe and Africa in 2007. It is a follow-up to the Long Way Round trip of 2004, when the pair rode east from London to New York via Eurasia and North America. This is a special 2-hour presentation of their journey which started on May 12, 2007 and finished on 4 August 2007. They were accompanied by the key members of the team from Long Way Round, including director/producers David Alexanian and Russ Malkin, along with cameramen Claudio Von Planta and Jimmy Simak. They were also joined by a medic and a security officer, as well as various "fixers" - local guides and interpreters - throughout the journey. They rode the BMW R1200GS Adventure, the successor to the R1150GS Adventure bikes they rode in Long Way Round.
