The original Michael Palin adventure. A global journey against the clock.

"Not until dawn on the day of departure did a full-blown, gut-tightening panic set in. I had volunteered to deliver six 50-minute documentaries, (having only done one in my life before), against the clock, with absolutely no script at all, on a route that might change without warning. Nothing like it had been attempted before." - Michael Palin

A Venetian refuse barge, a battered taxi in Egypt, a primitive boat across the Persian Gulf, a Chinese steam engine and a container ship across the Date Line...Michael Palin's attempt to circumnavigate the world heralds a phenomenal journey of dhows, diarrhoea, hungry parrots and a world full of surprises.
