Top Gear, Series 14 Episode 6 of 7

Duration: 1 hour, 15 minutes

Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May are dropped deep in the Bolivian rainforest armed only with three shabby 4x4s, which they bought from the local small ads for a maximum of £3,500 each.

What follows is one of their most extraordinary journeys. They attempt to drive from the heart of Bolivia to the coast of Chile, encountering local drug lords, the debilitating effects of high altitude and the terrifying sheer drops of the infamous Death Road along the way. But before all that, they've got to escape from the deep, dark centre of the rainforest.
