The previews and highlights have been and gone, and now the first instalment of Bailey of Bristol's #ArcticAdventure documentary is here for your viewing pleasure.

In this first part, the #ArcticAdventure team, including Lee Davey, Simon Howard and Martin Dorey set off from Millbrook Proving Ground in Northampton, across the English Channel and through continental Europe, travelling hundreds of miles each day.

Highlights include Martin Dorey's delicious cooking, the team passing through the Brandenburg Gate in Berlin and arriving at the Latvian coast before taking a ferry over to the Finnish mainland.
