Wise Men in the Middle East

Series 16, Special (2010)

The presenters attempt to prove that they are indeed both wise and men by purchasing second hand convertibles on a budget of £3500. With James in a BMW Z3, Richard in a Fiat Barchetta and Jeremy in a Mazda MX-5, the trio are mildly concerned to discover that the cargo plane they were on has dropped them off in the middle of… Iraq. A route to Israel is hastily worked out, taking in Turkey, Syria, and Jordan along the way. Desert sneaking and chariot racing feature among the challenges, not to mention the acquisition of gold, frankincense and myrrh for the newborn baby.
