Himalaya: When Will It Air In The US? by my dear on 28 October 2004 7:23am
 
Does anybody know when Himalaya will air in The States?

I'm guessing that either PBS or A&E will air it in Spring of next year, possibly during sweeps-week?

Question to those of you who are watching the series now: How does it compare with what He has done before?

My favorites were Around The World In 80 Days, and The Hemingway Adventure. Hoping for another great series... fingers crossed.

By comparison, so far I think Himalaya is spectacular for the scenery and magnificent colour in almost all of the places visited. The peoples in the series have variety but not quite so much as those in 80 Days, Pole to Pole or Full Circle - only because of the geographical boundary to the area. This aside, it is amazing to see the different ways in which the people manage to live in parts of one of the most inhospitable areas on earth. Also the insight into the politics of the region is very informative.

You say that there are insights into the poltics of the region?

That doesn't surprise me at all.

With each passing series, Michael is becoming more and more contemplative. Sahara was a bit of a departure for Michael in the sense that this was the least comedic series of his travel collection.

He's grown older and sterner - in consequence, he's become a little less entertaining, but his ability to educate has strengthened.

I'm really, really looking forward to seeing this new series.

North American Palinites - keep your eyes open and post in BIG BOLD LETTERS when you hear news of a North American air date.
