"The journey would be a dangerous one. I knew that, even before I set off from my home near Newmarket in Suffolk and began my drive towards the coast.
My mission was simple - to travel just 50 miles in our modern surveillance society without once being snapped by a CCTV camera or leaving any other trace of my trip for officialdom to detect.
At any point I might be mugged, coshed over the head and left for dead - and there would be no CCTV footage of my ordeal for the BBC's Crimewatch team to entertain their viewers with.
But on balance, this was a risk I was ready to take."
