Several years ago dh and I watched Full Circle about his travels around the Pacific Rim. When my oldest had to read Around the World in 80 Days, hubby mentioned there was a Michael Palin one following Phileas Fogg's route. We got it from Netflix and really enjoyed it. The girls want to watch Pole to Pole next. There is also one across the Himalayas and another across the Sahara. Excellent, excellent, excellent.

I'll second that, Ann. I haven't watched the latest two but Full Circle and Pole to Pole are first class.

Thanks for the reminder about these. Watched them years ago and had forgotten about them. DS is currently on a Monty Python's Flying Circus binge and it would be an easy transition to get him interested in Palin's documentaries.
