Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant continue to set their friend  Karl Pilkington up on what they believe is the ideal bucket list of things to do and experience before you die with one last challenge.

So for the final journey on Pilkington’s bucket list, we see him preparing for a 15-hour trek to the summit of Mount Fuji in Japan.

Beforehand he receives sumo-wrestling training and experiences state-of-the-art robotics.

An Idiot Abroad: Climb Mount Fuji is scheduled for broadcast tonight (13 December) on BBC BRIT (DStv channel 120) at 21.03 with a repeat showing on Tuesday 15 December at 00.06.
