The latest in the “Our Guy” series – featuring Guy Martin – takes us to the world’s largest country; Russia. Having explored China, Latvia and India in previously iterations of the series, Guy takes a bite of the bear as he explores domestic life, politics and culture in the bustling city centres and secluded country villages of Russia.
In this debut episode, Guy rides along with a Vladimir Putin’s biker gang through the streets of Moscow and persuades a mysterious man to let him drive his Zil limousine through Red Square. Elsewhere, Guy tries his hand at piloting, taking to the skies in an aerobatics show inside a decommissioned Soviet Union fighter jet.
Our Guy in Russia – Monday 9:00pm on Channel 4.
