Bus Driver

London bus driver Josh West heads back to the chaotic streets of Manila in the Philippines.

In 2010, he spent an emotional two weeks learning to drive a jeepney - a colourfully decorated, adapted jeep which has no power steering, dodgy lights and an uncomfortable seat. He formed a strong bond with his host Rogelio Castro, moved by the daily struggle of an ordinary Filipino working to feed his family and lift them from poverty. Since Josh came home to the UK, he has raised money to try and transform Rogelio's life.

Now, he is returning to Manila to see how things have changed and to set out on a new adventure that sees him star on Manila's most popular chat show and go fishing in the South China Sea, before taking to the streets once more in the terrifying jeepney.
