Journey to the Fourth World Narrated by PATRICK ALLEN
The Kali Gandaki in central Nepal is an unnavigable river. Yet besides the one, often impassable road through the Mahabarat Range it is the only means of communication in a vast mountainous area where disease and poverty are rife. Using lightweight hover-craft, a British Joint Services Expedition took up the challenge of this the uncharted River of the Goddess of Death. If the machines made it, they might become river ambulances for the United Mission Hospital - saving patients days of trekking for medical help.
