A group of wounded veterans embark on an extreme challenge

Last year, the BBC followed six people with disabilities as they took an epic journey across Vietnam.

It was an adventure that some thought would break them physically, but it never broke their spirit.

Now, to herald the start of the Invictus Games, the sporting event for injured and ill ex-servicemen and women, which starts in Sydney next week, a group of wounded British and Aussie veterans embark on a 1,000km expedition across Western Australia in this two-part documentary.

Matt Tolson takes up the challenge

Among them is Shaun Stocker and Matt Tolson, who with their team-mates endure demanding treks and tough off-road driving in specially adapted 4x4s in some of the most stunning and extreme locations on the planet.

Hard-hitting yet uplifting stuff.
