Full Circle with Michael Palin on DVD

Full Circle with Michael Palin
[DVD 911.823 Pal]

Chronicling Palin’s journey around the Pacific Ocean, from Alaska down to Asia to Australia up through South America and back to Alaska. This 10 episode tv mini-series, like Palin’s other travelogues is fantastic. You really feel like you are traveling with him and the camera crew to places that aren’t the tourist stops. This journey takes 245 days and 50,000 miles through 17 countries. I’ve watched this and Palin’s other travelogues multiple times and they don’t get old. I think this would appeal to a wide audience; anyone who likes documentaries, travel, and or Michael Palin would enjoy this set.

[If you enjoy this, you may also wish to try Pole to Pole and Around the World in 80 days, also with Michael Palin.] [Also available in traditional print format.] [ Internet Movie Database entry for this series ] | [ official Palin’s Travels web site ]
