Mr Connelly does NW passage. by measter on 24 February 2009 6:17pm
I've just been watching the new ITV series with Billy C transversing this wonderful route.Whilst i am not a particular fan of BC,i think it is a great shame that both he and the ITV got in first and i would have prefered to have seen Michael and the team doing this epic journey as the next project.Wonder why they didn't consider it?

Yes it is a brilliant series. The husband and I love all BC's travel series, and from the first one of this series we are not going to be disappointed!!

Drat, I missed that programme. I think Connolly is a pain in the arse and his wife even more so but the trailers I seen for the show looked good.

If you like folk music, here's a wonderful song about the northwest passage. It's worth listening a bit just for the man's voice--amazing!
