The palin effect!!! by Diamond on 23 July 2003 12:37am
 
ABTA - assoc.of British travel Agents love Michael palin - we are told in the final episode of the Way We Travelled - BBC (UK) tv, that they hold him responsible for the upsurge in people wishing to take adventurous hoidays to such places as the sahara in the footsteps of the great man. The travel industry call this the 'palin effect'

Palin's tv journeys have opened up the world for tv audiences on many levels, 15 years ago he embarked on his first odyssey, around the world in 80 days, Palin tells us he was not the BBC's first choice, though it is hard now to imagine it working with anyone else as out guide. (Noel Edmunds was one of the people the BBC first approached)

With his genuine interest in the people he met, and his joy in exploring, Michael Palin became the benchmark by which all other t v travellers have since been judged. With typical self deprecation, he claims he was simply "bungling his way around the world"


This is a quote from the Radio Times for week ending 1st August and has a lovely pic of Michael too, dont forget to watch if you can the TV prog on Turs 31st July OK
