Levison Wood burst onto our screens in 2014 with his series Walking the Nile. Since then he has walked the Himalayas, large chunks of Central America and most of the Arabian Peninsula specialising in post- conflict zones and some of the world’s most hard-to-reach places. He talks about his adventures with Julia Wheeler.
