Tony Wheeler’s Dark Lands

Greedy lords, dubious heroes, wicked relations and innocents in peril – today’s world sounds like a grim fairytale!

Travelling along the infamous ‘Axis of Evil’ led to Tony Wheeler’s Bad Lands – now he’s going deeper into the world’s darkest corners to explore a rogue’s gallery of troubled nations.

Every country has its problems, but some problems seem so vexed, so intractable, so absurd, you can only shake your head. Tony Wheeler trains his well-travelled eyes on some of these places and attempts to understand how things got so messed up.

Along the way he gets stoned (with the thrown variety) in Palestine, scores a speeding ticket in Zimbabwe, gets arrested for photographing a bar in the Congo, and visits Osama bin Laden’s Abbottabad in Pakistan. 

Join Tony and find out if there’s a happily-ever-after in these tales from the dark side.
