As the boys travel eastwards, our motoring trio are stopped by a river and realise it is too deep to wade through with their cars, especially since there are crocodiles lurking within it. Jeremy comes up with the idea of making their own car-ferry, designed specifically to take their cars across the river, (similar to one they had seen in Albania) using wood and rope.

FILM DESCRIPTION: The Bridge on the River Kwai opens in a Japanese prisoner-of-war camp in Burma in 1943, where a battle of wills rages between camp commander Colonel Saito (Sessue Hayakawa) and newly arrived British colonel Nicholson (Alec Guinness). Saito insists that Nicholson order his men to build a bridge over the river Kwai, which will be used to transport Japanese munitions. Nicholson refuses, despite all the various "persuasive" devices at Saito's disposal. Finally, Nicholson agrees, not so much to cooperate with his captor as to provide a morale-boosting project for the military engineers under his command. The colonel will prove that, by building a better bridge than Saito's men could build, the British soldier is a superior being even when under the thumb of the enemy. As the bridge goes up, Nicholson becomes obsessed with completing it to perfection, eventually losing sight of the fact that it will benefit the Japanese. Meanwhile, American POW Shears (William Holden), having escaped from the camp, agrees to save himself from a court martial by leading a group of British soldiers back to the camp to destroy Nicholson's bridge. Upon his return, Shears realizes that Nicholson's mania to complete his project has driven him mad. Filmed in Ceylon, Bridge on the River Kwai won seven Academy Awards, including Best Picture, Best Director for the legendary British filmmaker David Lean, and Best Actor for Guinness. It also won Best Screenplay for Pierre Boulle, the author of the novel on which the film was based, even though the actual writers were blacklisted writers Carl Foreman and Michael Wilson, who were given their Oscars under the table.

The train to Kanchanaburi from Bangkok leaves from the Thonburi Station, a much smaller station than Hualamphong and located on the other side of the Chao Phraya river. The train leaves Bangkok at 0745 and arrives in Kanchanaburi at 1025. It is an all Third Class train and the fare is 100 baht. The train is quite basic but comfortable enough for the short journey. The seats at least have padding and the carriages are quite clean although the toilet facilities are perhaps best describes as 'use only if you really can't wait'. The train stops at several small stations along the way with food vendors getting on and off to sell their wares to passengers. The passing scenery is quite pleasant although the outskirts of Bangkok are perhaps more interesting than pleasant. The train arrived right on time. The Station is located quite centrally, about 1 Km from the River Kwai Hotel. The train continues on to the Station right on the Bridge over the River Kwai and then on to the water fall along the original tracks laid by the Japanese during the 1940s.

Death Railway from the Bridge over the River Kwai to Hellfire Pass. More than 106.000 forced labourers died constructing this railway during World War II.

Go to 54 seconds to get straight into the dialogue. An awesome clip from a great movie, THE BRIDGE ON THE RIVER KWAI (1957). Alec Guinness, as Colonel Nicholson of the British Army in WW2, delivers a phenomenal monologue right after the completion of the bridge. Incredible writing, performing, and cinematography. Sir Alec Guinness, CH, CBE (2 April 1914 -- 5 August 2000) was an English actor. He was featured in several of the Ealing Comedies, including Kind Hearts and Coronets in which he played eight different characters. He later won the Academy Award for Best Actor for his role as Colonel Nicholson in The Bridge on the River Kwai. He is known for playing Obi-Wan Kenobi in the original Star Wars trilogy, Prince Feisal in Lawrence of Arabia, and George Smiley in the TV adaptation of Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy. He is also known for his portrayal of Herbert Pocket in Great Expectations (1946). The Bridge on the River Kwai opens in a Japanese prisoner-of-war camp in Burma in 1943, where a battle of wills rages between camp commander Colonel Saito (Sessue Hayakawa) and newly arrived British colonel Nicholson (Alec Guinness). Saito insists that Nicholson order his men to build a bridge over the river Kwai, which will be used to transport Japanese munitions.

English/Nat As veterans of the war in Asia prepare to commemorate the 50th anniversary of VJ day, many are still coming to terms with the horrors they endured. But one former prisoner of war of the Japanese a slave labourer on the notorious "Death Railway" in Thailand has found peace and contentment in a most unusual way. As Trevor Dakin gazes at the Bridge on the River Kwai, the memories come flooding back. From 1942 to 1945 he and thousands of others prisoners of war were forced to build this bridge and railway under the harsh rule of the Japanese. Disease, torture and executions took the lives of more than 13-thousand Allied prisoners enslaved to what became known as the 'Death Railway' . Fifty years ago, almost blind from malnutrition, weighing only 90 pounds, 25 year old Trevor Dakin survived to hear what he calls the 'sweetest words of his life'. SOUNDBITE: 'Our N.C.O, a Company sergeant Goodwin ran into the hut, tears streaming down his face, and said 'we're free boys, we're free!' We sat there numb we could not believe it. That I will always remember' SUPERCAPTION: Trevor Dakin, P.O.W on 'Death Railway' After the war Dakin moved to Canada but spent decades fighting his own personal war , trying to get over the hatred he felt towards the Japanese. In an attempt to chase away the ghosts of the past he returned to Thailand eight years ago. He has lived here ever since and claims to have found peace in the land that once caused him such pain SOUNDBITE: ' I can assure you that after my years here I have seen the other side of it. I've laid that ghost to rest and recognized you cannot live until you die with that kind of hate in your heart. Its like a cancer. It destroys you. No, I value these years here because its done a considerable amount for me personally. SUPERCAPTION: Trevor Dakin, P.O.W on 'Death Railway' Today the tourists try to imagine the torture and the starvation that thousands in South East Asia suffered under Japanese occupation. Not just Allied prisoners of war but over 100-thousand Asian slave labourers, buried where they fell, alongside the tracks they were forced to lay. Trevor Dakin says the Japanese brutality left many wishing they had died in the fighting once the true awfulness of their plight dawned on them SOUNDBITE: I'd like to tell the whole free world that you can never appreciate freedom until you have lost it. I can assure you that if we had foresight of the three and a half years we spent I think we would rather have gone down in battle. SUPERCAPTION: Trevor Dakin, P.O.W on 'Death Railway' On Tuesday (August 15th) several Japanese war veterans will visit this Allied cemetery in Kanchanaburi to personally apologize. Trevor Dakin will be there to welcome them having put the past behind him.

English/Nat Britain's Prince Philip travelled to the infamous bridge over the River Kwai Wednesday and paid homage to the thousands of Allied prisoners who died building the World War II railway it carries. Tropical rains cleared moments before the prince arrived at two Allied war cemeteries in the provincial Thai town of Kanchanaburi, the highlight of a week-long visit by Queen Elizabeth to Thailand. He laid a wreath to honour those who lost their lives in the war. The Queen carried out a separate visit in Bangkok. The Duke of Edinburgh was flown over the infamous wartime Bridge on the River Kwai before paying his respects at the graves of British and Commonwealth servicemen who died building it. His helicopter made two low passes over the bridge as British and Japanese tourists took holiday snaps. After a solemn service of remembrance at the cemetery in Kanchanaburi, he walked along row upon row of headstones bearing the names of 3-thousand 500 British prisoners-of-war. A bugler sounded the Last Post. There was two minutes silence. Then Reveille rang out across the field of memorials. The Prince, who is president of the Burma Star Association (British & Commonwealth veterans who fought in the Far East), laid a wreath at both cemeteries. He later met relatives of prisoners-of-war who died as slave labourers for the Japanese constructing the 250 mile long Burma-Siam railway during the Second World War. The POWs suffered appallingly. Naked except for loin cloths, skeletal due to a starvation ration of one bowl of rice a day, they were forced to hack up to 18 hours a day through dense, malarial jungle and dig through solid rock with primitive hand tools. Twenty six relatives of those who died were flown over to Thailand for the wreath-laying ceremony, courtesy of the British government. All of those present at the service had their own sad stories to tell. SOUNDBITE: "It makes me feel like I've lost someone I didn't know because they were all down here when I was young. Fourteen years old when he came in the army and I never grew up with him." SUPER CAPTION: Albert Felton from London, England - Brother of Private who died in 1942, aged 28, when building the Death Railway They still harbour bitterness about the inhumane treatment their family members were subjected to. SOUNDBITE: "They were just captured men and they should have been looked after, shouldn't they? It wasn't necessary to torture them and beat them and starve them and do what they did. It doesn't matter how the country feels now, you can hardly forget." SUPER CAPTION: Ada Taylor from Newcastle, England - Wife of man who died when building the Death Railway The Queen was in Bangkok carrying out engagements on the third day of her Far East state visit.

The Bridge on the River Kwai - The Real Story Narrated by Grand daughter of Brigadier Sir Philip Toosey, Julie Summers. The Film that was released in 1957 stared Alec Guinness and included the biggest explosion on film at that time. Brigadier Sir Philip John Denton Toosey was born in Upton Road in 1904 and moved to 20 Rosemount in 1910. Over the course of his life he played a role in the lives of many, many people from all walks of life: from Liverpool to Lima, from Barings Bank to the Bridge on the River Kwai and from Oxton to Africa. He had the ability to make you feel as if you were the only person who mattered at that moment in time, whether you were being praised on parade, being given a severe rocket for leaving bicycles on a train or drawing on the dining room wall paper. Latterly people felt his gaze upon them as he fundraised energetically for the Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine. He was more than his title would suggest. His kindness, his delicious sense of humour, his repertoire of whistles and his passion for life never waned. He shared this passion with all who came into contact with him. To his friends he was Phil, and sometimes ‘Dear old Phil.’ To his wife, Alex, he was Philip with a particularly plosive P when she was cross with him. To his three children, Patrick, Gillian and Nicholas he was ‘The Captain’,named after Captain William Bush RN, a fictional character of extreme efficiency and loyalty in CS Forester’s Horatio Hornblower series. Thus to us his grandchildren he became Grandpa Bush. To his men he was the Colonel and later The Brig and to the thousands of people he met over the course of his working life he was simply Mr Toosey. To one man, however, he was a figure of such significance that he changed the course of this man’s life. Sergeant Major Teruo Saito was second in command at Tamarkan in Thailand when Colonel Toosey and his men marched into the bridge camp on the River Kwai to the tune of Colonel Bogey. Saito was a regular army officer from the Imperial Japanese Army and although his methods of discipline were brutal, Toosey always argued that Saito knew how to handle men and there formed an unlikely bond between the two of them based on mutual respect. Toosey wrung concessions out of Saito for his men, such as rest or Yasume days, a canteen and the right to discipline his own men rather than leave it to the Japanese. In return he agreed to keep the camp clean and morale high, which in itself saved hundreds of lives. In 1943 Toosey was involved in a plot to help two officers and seven soldiers escape. The men were all captured and executed. Toosey told Saito that only he had known of the plan and as such he was subjected to a severe beating and was forced to stand to attention for twenty-four hours in the tropical heat – a humiliation initiated by Saito as a way to show the Kempi Tai (the Japanese equivalent of the Gestapo) that he had dealt with the situation. Saito’s actions undoubtedly saved Toosey from an even more unpleasant fate. At the end of the war when Toosey was asked to help screen the Japanese and Korean guards for war crimes he told the investigators that Saito should be set free. This made an enormous impression on the Japanese. In 1974 he wrote to Toosey: For long period of time I have been harbouring the wish to meet you and express my thanks to you. I especially remember in 1945 when the war ended and when our situations were completely reversed. I was gravely shocked and delighted when you came to shake me by the hand as only day before you were prisoner. You exchanged friendly words with me and I discovered what a great man you were. Even after winning you were not arrogant or proud. You are the type of man who is a real bridge over the battlefield. A decade later, in what would have been Toosey’s 80th year, Saito came to Britain at the invitation of Professor Peter Davies, Toosey’s first biographer. They visited the grave in Landican cemetery and Saito expressed surprise that there was no great monument but a simple headstone. He asked to spend a few moments at the grave as to say a prayer, for he had converted to Christianity after the war. Later that afternoon he came here to tea with Patrick and Penny and saw 20 Rosemount. He returned to Thailand and wrote to Peter and Patrick: I feel very fine because I finish my own strong duty. One thing I regret, I could not visit Mr Philip Toosey when he was alive. He showed me what a human being should be. He changed the philosophy of my life.

Vlog # 41 Bridge Over The River Kwai Tour Part 4 So After we left the boat we made our way upto the bridge. There was a small market there and a few shops and I wanted to get a souvenir and to look around. The tour guide told us we only had a few minutes until the train arrived to take us onto the Hell Fire Pass. I wasnt happy with this as the tour so far I felt had been rushed. Should we have left Bangkok earlier I was thinking. Also the delay on leaving the Shangri-La hotel did not help. So no souvenir shopping and had to race about to at least get some photos and footage before the train pulled in. Was this the only train due on the day? Could we have taken a later train? Who knows. So after rushing about the train arrived. We all got on and the next part of the tour got under way. Music credits, Believer - Silent Partner Lude Illa - Joe Bagale Frequency - Silent Partner

Description in both English and Polish (opis po Polsku poniżej po kliknięciu POKAŻ WIĘCEJ). Backpacking through Thailand, Kanchanaburi and our trip to The Bridge over the Kwai River in June 2013. During World War 2, the Japanese used Allied prisoners of war to build a railway from Thailand to Burma so they could supply their army without the dangers of sending supplies by sea. Many prisoners died under appalling conditions during construction and the line became known as the 'Death Railway'. It was immortalised in David Lean's 1957 film The Bridge on the River Kwai which centres around one of the line's main engineering feats, the bridge across the Kwae Yai river just north of Kanchanaburi. Best time to see the bridge is at sunrise. The tours start arriving shortly afterwards. The bridge can be photographed from the far side on the floating jetty. Trains arrive about 630am. At midday there can be a few hundred people crossing and visiting the bridge. Well worth an hours visit. Interested in perfect located quiet hotel in a tropical green area in Kanchanaburi?

Podczas II Wojny Światowej, Japończycy użyli więźniów wojennych do zbudowania torów kolejowych z Tajlandii do Burmy, by móc zaopatrywać swoją armię bez konieczności narażania się na przeprawy przez morze. Wielu jeńców zgnieło w okropnych warunkach, a linia kolejowa zyskała nazwę “Death Railway”. Zostało uwiecznione to w filmie Davida Lean z 1957 “The Bridge on the River Kwai”, który skupia się na jednym odcinku inżynieryjnego wyczynu, mostu prowadzącego przez rzekę Kwae Yai na północ od Kanchanaburi. Najlepszy czas aby podziwiać most to wschód słońca. Turyści schodzą się zaraz po. Most można fotografować z każdej strony. Pociąg przyjeżdża okolo 6.30.

www.vientianetimes.org.la Laos-Thailand Friendship Bridge Opens: Third Lao-Thai bridge strengthens regional links The third Lao-Thailand International Friendship Bridge linking Khammuan province with Nakhon Phanom in Thailand has officially opened, marking an historic occasion for the two neighbouring countries. Much more than a utilitarian structure bridging the left and right banks of the Mekong River, it will be an enduring symbol of the long-lasting friendship and cooperation between Laos and Thailand. A groundbreaking ceremony took place on both sides of the river in March 2009 to mark the start of construction work. The ceremony was presided over by Lao Vice President Bounnhang Vorachit and Her Royal Highness Princess Mahachakri Sirindhorn of Thailand. Mr Fasavath said the efficient construction of the bridge was a tribute to the effective cooperation between the two countries. The bridge was built with pre-stressed concrete box girders 13 metres in width. There will be two lanes for traffic, each 3.5m wide, and two footpaths, each 1 metre wide. The bridge's construction is of a similar style to the first Lao-Thai Mekong Friendship Bridge linking Vientiane with Nong Khai province, Thailand, which opened in 1994. A second bridge across the Mekong opened to the public in 2007, linking Savannakhet province in Laos and Mukdahan province in Thailand. The opening of the third bridge reflects the ongoing and comprehensive friendship between Laos and Thailand, and also the Lao government's commitment to integrating the country into the region, and transforming Laos from a landlocked to a land linked country.
