  The Chatter Box : Blathering On
Competitions? by rick694uk on 18 October 2002 8:46pm

Are there any plans for competitions on the site? The prizes being: signed pics, site t-shirts, or signed trinkets from Michael's travels maybe, etc, etc. Or, if the site has the capability, such things could be auctioned and the proceeds donated to Michael's favourite charity?

Maybe a good competition would be: we all make suggestions as to what we think would be a good idea for Michael's next series? Michael selects his top-ten/three favourites, then we all vote. (But with one registered user-one vote proviso!) The person who suggests the winning idea, and/or the one that Michael selects, gets to meet Michael on his departure, or even to appear briefly in that series?

How about I start?

Michael Palin's Time Machine. Michael goes back through history and visits places that have figured significantly in history. Maybe one century per episode? He covers: famous people - and any living relatives, or residents of the places they once lived; works of art and literature - and how they were received through time; buildings - and how they may have changed; places - and the importance they played in history.

But I particularly like the idea of competing or bidding for trinkets from Michael's travels! Just a suggestion.

I found this on page 175 of the posts and as it is interesting thought it worth bringing forward.
