Film and Sound Crew by jolox on 26 January 2003 1:47am
Michael always appears on his own, or with a local guide. How many others travel with him? Cameramen, sound engineers etc.? Who makes all the travel arrangements initially? The team mucst be several strong but how many?

jolox - have you read the books from the series? The information who travels with him are on there. Or you could check it out on this site. Choose whichever series you want and look to the right at 'Palin's Guide' and click onto people. That will list the crew that travelled with Michael.

Hello jolox. Saw Michael speak in Melbourne last night and a similar question was asked. Very brief summary ..... about 7 people on the actual trip. If memory serves me right the Director for each section/location visits in advance and arranges local people to assist with necessary security/travel arrangements etc.

Yeah, you should read the books jolox! In the beginning there are acknowledgments and it lists Michael's thanks to his crew and people in the office and people that work for BBC and guides that...guided them along the way, etc. And directors or crew members that directed or worked for half the series or a quarter and etc. Just read about them in any series section on the website!

Whereabouts in Melbourne did you see Michael speak last night?

Michelle :)
