Pole to Pole on DVD by marshy54 on 6 March 2004 12:28pm
I was very happy to get my pre-ordered Pole to Pole on DVD through the letter box on Thursday. Last night my wife and I settled down with a bottle of wine and watched it. It was great to see it again (since the Christmas TV showing) but even better with the great quality of DVD reproduction and the opportunity to stop and replay the bits that I hadn't grasped during the TV showing, for instance, the guy in Tronso saying the sun disappears in November and then returns in January, or the fact it took them 13 hours by plane to get from the North Pole to the Norwegian base camp in the artic!! It really gives you the urge to travel again! In fact, we are planning a trip to Northern Scandinavia (maybe Lapland) because of it. It is priceless - well worth the £14 I paid. Watch episodes back to back is also great, even though it is so long we couldn't watch it all in one evening. It will be back in the DVD player tonight and I'm already looking forward to it!! I would recommend anyone to go out and this on DVD now it is available :-)

Pole to Pole DVD features an interview with Michael Palin, reminiscing this journey.
There are no extra bits besides the interview.
