British reviews by hancar on 30 January 2003 3:45pm
To all Palinites in UK! Can you tell me what the critics in Britain said about "Sahara" (both the book and the TV program) when it was released? Did they like it?
I e-mailed the swedish television to ask them if they're planning to show Sahara, and got a positive answer, it will be on this summer, hooray! Suddenly this winter doesn't seem so long and boring anymore, if you're waiting for something good you can never wait too long :))

have a review somewhere in my pile of palin papers and will look it up for you - I thoroughly enjoyed the sahara series - there was an article in the paper a few weeks ago about the influence that the progs like sahara have on people taking holidays and they now go on adventure holidays because of these sort of progs - so palinitis is now official, which isnt surprising.

tell us in the uk how to deal with this white stuff they call snow please!! we seem to have come to a standstill!! good job that MP is in sunny australia!

No it was in the telegraph I think in the culture part! have you still got it - wonder if you can get copies of things like that at the library - will have to ask.

PS it isnt the 1st of feb yet but it says so on the list - spooky writing things on a day that isnt here yet!

I think the timing on this is 2 hours (give or take, excuse my maths) ahead of UK time. When I post at 9pm, it says it's the next day. That would be 3 hours ahead, oops!
Ello- yes, still got newspaper article- saved especially!
