Inspired by a desire to understand the nomadic way of life, Australian adventurer Tim Cope embarked on a remarkable journey: 6,000 miles on horseback across the Eurasian steppe from Mongolia, through Kazakhstan, Russia, and the Ukraine, to Hungary retracing the trail of Genghis Khan.
In a two-part series of interview with Richard Fidler Tim details his experiences, from stories about his dog Tigon, to the politics and upheaval of Crimea (as detailed in his award winning book, On the Trail of Genghis Khan). These were recorded in 2013 but have been replayed this week:
