Quotes:
Michael Palin:[on the train to Shanghai] There's a small army of 50 staff on this train. I'm not quite sure what they all do but yesterday I saw one energetically sloshing a wet mop up and down our corridor. It didn't seem to be doing the carpet any good at all.See more »

Warning- US dvds are not the series, 10 June 2006
Author: imachessnut from United States

I loved the series but the DVDs you will link to are NOT the dvds of Palin'e journey. Panlin makes a great journey following the original intent of the story. He does not use aircraft and I find the journey both interesting and dramatic. Following the journey of Phineous is difficult today...surprisingly. His observations are amusing and interesting...especially to people from the US. The question that Palin constantly worries about is whether he can make it in 80 days and it is a dramatic race to the finish. Watch out, the dvds on Amazon are not the dvds of Palin's journey. I hope that someday they will make a version for us. Until then, be very careful.
