After attending a party in the Shan State, the presenters reach what they believe is the River Kwai, where they are challenged with building a bridge over the river, and are not allowed to go home until all three lorries have driven over it. The next morning, they realize the river is wider than they had imagined. James plots a bridge meanwhile Hammond goes into town looking for supplies and Jeremy goes into town looking for food and other workers. Jeremy gets workers and brings back a large crane which eventually fails and tips over destroying a part of the bridge, nearly killing James in the process. Halfway through construction, Jeremy discovers that the river is actually River Kok. In the end the bridge is completed and each of the vehicles are driven over it, completing the challenge. During the end credits, each member of the cast and crew’s first name was credited as “Sir Alec”, in homage to Sir Alec Guinness, who starred in the movie, The Bridge on the River Kwai.
