once again the new series title? by macauley on 26 April 2003 7:14am
 
keep thinking about the new journey in '04...how about "Michael Palin and the Middle Kingdom"...or "MP and the Search for Shangrila"? could start in Nepal,in Kathmandu....with all the noisy, messy tourists and follow a long journey mostly uphill losing all those sorts, so we could spend at least an hour of BBC time....then up and into Tibet and the capital Lhasa to see if any buddist monks are still there after the chinese chased them all to india. best be careful there...want to come home after all....check out the himalayas from within but do not climb any of the most prominent peaks, but do interview some of the students at Hillary's schools...one to be sure, who is l6 and climbs 5 hours daily uphill to go to school and has an easy (!)downhill run home after classes...and hopes to attend medical school! then on to Bhutan and that mysterious mountain country with no tourists and then down to India and out with a cup of tea in Darjeeling in the north of that country. and michael, could you bring out a prayer flag with you....and if you find Ronald Colman would you let me know? the latter is meaningful to those of us over 59 11/12 of age. and that is me.
