The Way we travelled - With Michael Palin by Diamond on 13 July 2003 3:45pm
 
well there is going to be a new series on BBC 2 8pm starting this thurs 17th July on UK tv.

it is the story of travel the way that tv has portrayed it over the last thirty years, so the first programme features the 1950's and Alan Whicker etc

the second is about the sixties and seventies - Holiday prgrammes etc

The world is your oyster - the third programme is on Thurs 31st July (again 8pm BBC2 UK) This one is about Michael Palin and the programmes from around the world and pole to pole - up to sahara and how they have influenced the holidays we take.

So set your videos folks and enjoy!!

Thanks for this info, I saw some of last nights programme (17/7/03) and enjoyed the Alan Wicker world take up by Michael and the python's, was wondering if this programme would include all of Michaels stuff, glad it is and will tape it, cheers

Just a quick reminder that tonight's episode (BBC2 8pm) is the one with Michael in it

I must admit i did not like the format of the programme, in that people who had nothing to do with travel were interviewd about their thoughts on the people or the programmes featured!!

The rough guide to travel that was featured - i did not like at all and that part will be edited out of my vido when I copy it - Benedict Allen was also featured and interviewed.

Michael was briliant and was on quite a lot (bieng interviewed whilst sat in a directors chair)- starting with ATWIED -clips and interviews, then later on came P2P (remember the lighthouse keeper!!) and how dangerous it was trying to get Michael on to the ice of the North Pole (!!)- there was quite a lot about Michael - including, at the start, a precis of his career including a showing of the fish slapping dance!!! from MPFC.

Sahara featured and we had an announcement at the end to say that the next series Michael does is : The Length and Breadth of the Himalayas? but think this is a description rather than title and it will take 6 months to complete!!

Sounds as if Michael should be home for Christmas.

Roll on the series release and book signings!!
