Another great bit of footage via Adam Curtis' blog.
Available only if you're on a network that connects via the UK, sadly.
Well worth watching, if only to see Sheikh Mo enjoying a bit of dune bashing in his Mercedes Saloon. Not sure the modern S Class's approach and departure angle would allow that today.
