Nick Hewer’s African Apprentice

The star of The Farm Fixer, Nick Hewer attempts a near-impossible adventure - towing a one-and-a-half-tonne industrial saw and generator 5,000 miles to Sierra Leone.

Confronting punishing heat, potholed dirt tracks, basic mechanics and corruption, Nick plans to present the saw to James, a street kid he met three years earlier. But the reality of owning a massive machine in one of the world's poorest countries gives rise to questions about the wisdom of Nick's philanthropy. Can a personal intervention be any more effective than giving money to one of the big charities?
