In 2014 he walked the length of the Nile, and the following year trekked from Afghanistan to Bhutan across the Himalayas. He’s just returned from his latest expedition, a four month walk through Central America from Mexico to Colombia, passing through the notorious Darien Gap.

“I’m pretty lucky because I’ve kind of got everything that I could ever have dreamed of in terms of my career,” says Wood during a break between recording voice overs for his new series Walking the Americas.

DRONES or HELICOPTERS; TRUTH or LIES?

Local DoP, and sometime director, editor, journalist, writer, producer, social worker, teacher, and general ageing hippie, David Baillie, comes clean on a career of lies, subterfuge, and adventure.

With clips from wars, famines, corporates, dramas and cock ups, he’ll aim to show another generation how to see the world, pay the mortgage and have fun in film.

The test of career is to be able to reach 60 and say — "I wouldn’t have had it any other way".  And if you tell the right fibs, you can do it!
