BBC Documentary on the Hell Run

Listen to Carolyn Dempster interview H and Vera on their way to Maputo with a load of frozen fish. This is a radio clip for BBC World service from 1995.

Even though it was more than two years after the end of the war the road still looked like a hell run. I first listened to the unedited version, the demo cassette that was sent to H at the time. Some of his antics and the more inappropriate behavior was edited out.

H begins by calling his truck a bitch which he affectionately names stormy because of its moods. All the while the reporter is a female. It’s typical H.
