Hector - Ó Siberia go Saigon

TG4 • Ireland • 2018

The greatest, the longest, the most epic journey Hector has ever done begins in one of the most sparsely populated regions on Earth. He’s 3,500 kms from Moscow, the capital of Russia but stuck deep in a place where exiles and prisoners were sent for 1000’s of years. Yes – Hector is beginning his greatest adventure of them all deep in Siberia. In 8 week’s time, having stepped out of Russia, crossed Mongolia and China, entered Nepal and crossed Bangladesh, Burma, Thailand and Cambodia he will end up sunning himself in Saigon, a journey of over 8,000 kms.

On his journey through Mongolia, he connects with unique locals from a herder who moved out of the city to live the nomad life to understand why he did the opposite when everyone is going after a life in a bigger city, a sport enthusiast to better understand the wrestling culture, young journalist to understand the country’s current situation to an owner of a most isolated vinyl store.
