Starting today on Apple TV+, Long Way Up starring Ewan McGregor and Charley Boorman, where the pair drive 13,000 miles from Ushuaia in South America to Los Angeles in North America. The pair have completed a couple of shows in the same style in the past, Long Way Round in 2004 and Long Way Down in 2007 and Long Way Up will be the first show in over ten years.

Charley Tweeted today and said the first three episodes are available, there isn’t any information on how long this show is.


In the road trip, the pair are using electric motorbikes and part of the challenge is to see how long they can last and the charging complications along the way.

Jonny Smith from Fifth Gear and Smith and Sniff interviewed Charley Boorman this week on his YouTube channel about the bikes. The interview starts at 12:00.
