Comedian and actor Hugh Dennis joins Alice Levine on a race around the world. It’s the 1960s, and businessman, inventor and dreamer Donald Crowhurst is in serious financial trouble.

On launch day however, he has an unfinished boat and very little sailing experience - and he’s bet his house on finishing the race.
