New Series by sighthound on 22 May 2018 1:33am
Mr. Palin has a new travel series coming out later this year. It's about North Korea.
Re: New Series by sighthound on 23 May 2018 6:10am
Here's an article about it

Hi sighthound. I've tried finding out about the msn item you have posted the link for above.

Firstly, the link doesn't work for me and secondly, a quick search of Mr Palin's other, more up to date, website reveals no suggestion that he is going to North Korea.

Do you have another source that confirms the North Korea suggestion?


Sorry; I have found an item in inews.co.uk from 6 days ago that confirms the North Korea visit. I look forward to seeing the programme on Channel 5 later this year when it is aired.

Sorry the link didn't work for you, Ken. I found a flood of articles that had lots of photos of him in North Korea. I think the filming is finished and they are in post-production now.

This will be shown on Channel 5 in the UK this Autumn. TV Adverts have already started going out and Michael is promoting it on his social media too. He did a talk about the series at the Edinburgh TV Festival too.

Personally, it's a big shame it's not on the BBC like all his other series. I would have thought they would jump at this chance to see Palin finally allowed into NK after being denied during Full Cirlce. Plus Palins Travels and the BBC go together well.

I hope it's still the same high quality stuff we are used to seeing from Palin.

I'm very excited to see him in NK, I visited a few years ago, so finally a place I went before Michael!

Excellent programme!
Re: New Series by Fish on 10 October 2018 7:33pm
Yes, it was brilliant. Felt like we had the old Palin back, from the early series. Inquisitive and adventurous. I hope C5 release it on DVD to add to my collection. I don't see anything though nor a book. :(
