Burma Special - Part 2

Episode 7 of 7

Special edition of the motoring show. Jeremy, Richard and James head for the volatile Shan state and towards their final challenge - to build a bridge over the River Kwai.

Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May are battling across Burma in three ancient and barely functioning lorries.

Having forded rivers, climbed mountains and endured a Burmese trucker stop, they must now venture into the Shan state, an area rife with civil war and normally closed to western TV crews, as they head towards Thailand and their final challenge - to build a bridge over the River Kwai.
