News: Romesh Ranganathan Roughs It For BBC2

Romesh Ranganathan is making a new travel series for BBC2.  InRomesh’s Really Rough Guide he’s travelling way beyond his comfort zone and the world of a complimentary breakfast buffet as he ventures to some of the most beautiful but dangerous places on earth.

Hosted by locals and fully immersed in the local culture, he’s going to be given an eye-opening insider’s guide to countries that are big on natural beauty, character and charm. Largely unspoiled by hordes of tourists because of their bad reputations, Romesh will discover why they’re perceived to be amongst the most dangerous on Earth and therefore not generally on your average holiday wish list.

Holidaying where other people fear to venture, he will forego home comforts to really explore the heart of these areas, challenging both his own and our preconceptions about them, ultimately exploring whether they are as dangerous as we are led to believe or in fact well worth visiting.

Romesh Ranganathan says: “I got fed up with people telling me that doing travel shows was essentially a paid holiday, so I decided to tackle that by doing one where I could actually die.”
