Sahara by Gabor on 26 April 2005 10:46pm
 
I think the Sahara adventure is one of the best! But only that person can say this who has been to the Sahara. And I was so lucky that I visited Egypt last summer and I wisited the sahara to. It was great!

The new 'Sahara' movie also contains locations from Michael's journey.

I agree completely about Sahara being the best although I haven't been I find it the most entertaining and funny.
Bottoms Up!

I haven't seen the film "Sahara" and nor do I want to, the last Dirk Pitt film to be made was "Raise The Titanic" and that was a pile of crap! The novel, Sahara is brilliant and I have read it many times.

Well, after seeing the series and reading the book I decided that it HAD to be done! So two of us, very close to Michael, with a combined age of 114!, are in the "Plymouth-Banjul Challenge 2006" --- no camera crew or back-up though!! www.artfulbodgers.co.uk
 
Hammershoi by copps on 13 July 2005 10:09am
 
Loved the programme last night! Michael ended by wondering why open doors are in so many paintings. Could H have been saying that there are many places the subject could have been in but chose not to be? That the place she is sitting in is the right place for her? The fact that her back is to the painter means the painter cannot enter her space? Her existence is only real to herself. Perhaps H was influenced by Kierkegaard - man exists in isolation. Just a supposition!

Does anyone know how a Hammershoi comment got into the Sahara thread?

Ken,

Look at the subject in that post, and it all becomes clear :

"..wondering why open doors are in so many paintings. Could H have been saying that there are many places the subject could have been in but chose not to be? That the place she is sitting in is the right place for her?"

Sahara is doing a rerun on BBC1 at 7pm on Wedesday evenings.

I borrowed the book Sahara and brought it to my Toastmasters meeting to show a friend who is from Morocco. I just finished reading a book by a British travel writer named Nick Middleton called
Extremes. One chapter is with nomads in the Tenere Desert (part of the Sahara in Niger).
Mike
