Michael Palin: Travels of a Lifetime

In this four part series Michael Palin: My Travels of a Lifetime the much-loved TV traveller, Michael Palin, revisit four of his famous documentary series – Around the World in 80 Days, Pole to Pole, Full Circle and Sahara. In intimate conversation, and using his personal archive of audio recordings and diary notebooks, he reflects on how he got addicted to travel. Much of this archive hasn’t been touched for decades and for Michael these memories reveal the inside story of making these ground-breaking series. Famous friends and fans including Sir David Attenborough, Simon Reeve and Joanna Lumley explain why Michael was a perfect guide inspiring others to go on adventures of their own.

I watched Travels of a Lifetime twice, just for the joy of it.
