Michael Palin: Pole to Pole
- By: Michael Palin
- Narrated by: Michael Palin
- Length: 9 hrs and 59 mins
In Pole to Pole we join Michael Palin on the second of his epic challenges. Travelling from the North Pole to the South Pole, he experiences every extreme the globe has to offer. As he crosses 16 countries by train, truck, raft, Ski-Doo, barge, balloon and bicycle, he meets a diverse range of fascinating characters and landscapes while his own endurance is tested to the limit. With his customary aplomb, he plunges himself into the local cultures, starring in a crayfish documentary in Novgorod, attending a baby-rolling ceremony at a Cypriot wedding, and consulting an Mpulugu witch-doctor.
An interesting story with excellent narration

this is so different to watching the tv journey, the insights and anecdotes are fab and I could listen to Michael Palin narration at any time. Highly recommended.
