Russia on Four Wheels
Journalists Justin Rowlatt and Anita Rani set off on epic road trips across Russia, discovering two very different sides of a vast and enigmatic country looking to assert itself once again on the world stage. Driving a battered Soviet-built Red Army jeep into “old” Russia, Justin encounters a land that seems to have hardly changed since before the Cold War years. Anita, meanwhile, is behind the wheel of a Kombat, a luxury amour-plated bling machine. She roars into a world of entrepreneurs, the mega-rich and rebellious youth - people at the forefront of shaping a new and vibrant Russia.
