The End of the Road

Self Drives: The Trabant

02-12-2016 • 13 mins

Will Self finally reaches Zwickau, the birthplace of the Trabant.

With gearbox problems having ruined hopes of arriving in his own Trabant, Will and his friend Mike have no choice but to complete their journey by train.

Nevertheless, their arrival causes something of a stir. The local museum have some surprises in store - including a meeting with the widow of the man who designed the iconic communist car.

Producer: Laurence Grissell.
