    Without Limits: Vietnam Series 1
    Six people with different physical disabilities embark on an ambitious and emotional adventure of a lifetime through the diverse landscapes of Vietnam. Although shadowed by film and safety crews, the group are in charge of their journey, navigating the route and the difficult access in a country ill-equipped for disability.

    Part 1:
    In the 4x4 is Vicky Balch, who lost her leg after the rollercoaster accident at Alton Towers in 2015. She's determined to restore her independence, but suffers an early setback when the car's brakes fail. Mary Russell was born with achondroplasia - the most common type of dwarfism. She has struggled with depression throughout her life and still fights a battle with low self-esteem. Olympic wheelchair rugby captain Steve Brown was paralysed from the chest down 12 years ago. In Vietnam he faces his greatest challenge on an ambitious caving expedition.

    Part 2:
    At the halfway stage of their epic journey through Vietnam, the group have reached Quang Tri Province, which saw the fiercest fighting in the Vietnam War. The region is still experiencing its legacy, with unexploded bombs maiming local people. After stepping on a mine in 1996, Tu has a simple wooden leg which cost $30. Vicky tells him how her leg was amputated after the Alton Towers accident and shows him her own prosthetic.
