Director Tim Niel and I chat over Skype about some of the unusual experiences we had making the recent TV series, The Silk Road for BBC Four. Hear about the 'tunnel of death', some of the weird and wonderful food we ate, scavenging for car parts from abandoned vehicles in the remotest of places, and other the improvisations we had to make whilst filming. Follow me on Twitter and let me know what you thought of the show, I'd love to hear from you!
