New Series - North Korea! by sighthound on 24 May 2018 10:20pm
 
You lucky UK people will be getting to see Mr. P's latest this year on Channel 5. Hopefully the rest of us won't have to wait too long.

Here's a link to one of the articles about it:

When we get to read the book & see it, I'll be curious, but how much will he be able to explore?

Thanks for the information sighthound. I had difficulty confirming it (see my comments in the Series section) but inews.co.uk also has information about the visit with a photo of him in front of a Korean billboard.

Sorry that the link didn't work, Ken, but I came across a lot of articles about it so you can probably google them. Lots of pics of Mr. P in N. Korea. I think the filming is finished. Looking forward to seeing it. Just hope it doesn't take too long to get it here in the US.

It wouldn't surprise me if Mr P has managed to see Kim Jong Un as part of the series. Monty Python fame sometimes opens more international diplomacy doors than politicians can?!

I've just seen what seems to have been the second and final episode of Mr P's documentary on North Korea (Channel 5, 9pm tonight). It was very informative and I would have felt the same as him going there. Did anyone see the first episode when he was in Pyong Yang? At one point I thought Mr P should be the prime minister of the world!

I found the first episode on the internet and have just watched it. Very well done; Channel 5 and Mr P.
