Around the World in 80 Days by suzulu on 9 January 2008 7:17pm
 
This was on BBC2 over Christmas/New Year. It was on about 9.15 in the morning so it made me get up and not lie in every morning!

Ver good but why not just buy the DVD and watch it again, again, again, again, again, again, again (c) Status Quo

On days 65 and 66 of his travels, there are a few entries in his journal that are specific interest to me. I was with my parents on that train from LA to Glenwood and he actually mentions meeting us and my mother singing to me. The story I hear from my parents is that my mom and I were playing patty cake and they wanted to film us but I became shy and didn't want them to. Now I am simply amazed that we made his journal. I of course wish I hadn't been so shy, but I could only hope that Palin could know how neat it is to read about something in my life I have no memory of. Next time I promise to be less camera shy!

Mac.Hawk, I do not have a DVD player at the moment. If I did I would buy the whole series. Anyway, I was staying at my sister's over Christmas and New Year.

Sweetpea, if only you hadn't been so shy!

I think what sweetpea_d7 meant was that her mother was singing to her, not MP. (And by the way, I am also jealous.)

I loved this series. I'm re-reading the book at the moment. At the time of writing, he has just boarded the Neptune Diamond and is on the coast of Vietnam.

I have just completed watching the DVD's of Around the world in 80 days and even though some of the people look a little dated, the programme as a whole is still very fresh. Would love to see another MP series simialar to this (all the more reason to now as it's the 20th anniversary)

You mean making a another with the same concept of traveling somewhere where he has to be back within a certian time??

Most will concede that a followup to 80 days shouldn't be to redo the episode but instead focus on the changes that have occurred during his original trip. Maybe connect with the people he originally met. This is as it would be mighty difficult for Michael to gain passage the way he did back then; cargo ships do not ferry people around anymore due to security and corporate concerns (security on the docks is as tight as the tarmac of an airport). Michael also is too tired for that kind of thing. Granted, BBC could just charter a bunch of ships for Michael to circle the world but that would quickly kill the spirit of his adventure. Just having a series where he goes to select points and catches up on where he left behind would be far more feasible.
