Much better than many fictional films
20 October 2001 | by (London, Home Counties, South East) – See all my reviews

This series has it all: humour, adventure, action and suspense. After the excellent 80 days around the World travelogue series, former Monty Python Michael Palin travels with his team, from the North Pole to the South Pole along a 30 degrees longitude trip (Well ... at least he tries too !)

This is fabulous entertaining and educational stuff. He never ceases in being slightly British in appreciation and humour, without the stuffiness and the arrogance he sometimes encounters in other ex-British patriotes located in the countries he sometimes visits. He is always quirky and easily adaptable to the circumstances and adversities he encounters. He is always respectful of other human beings he encounters even in dire and sometimes miserable places. A remarkably truthful and funny human being we should all be proud of in sharing his travels and observations with us. He travels to places and shows really pleasure in sharing with us our world, even if only flirtingly, places we can only dream of perhaps, one day of also being able to visit.

Thanks to the excellent crew and all at the BBC.
