Thoroughly enjoyable
Well, what a lot of negative, perhaps jealous reviewers. Palin is a great all round entertainer and his travel shows are great. I get to see the world through his eyes without having to be herded around like cattle, enduring the queues, the heat and the cold. He is doing a great job. Enjoy it for what it is all you envious moaners!

Another jolly for the fatcats
Yet again Michael Palin is on another jolly. It seems desperately unfair that this ageing multi millionaire should once again be freeloading exotic holiday trips. He was a great travelogue commentator, but for goodness sake give someone else a chance. What about a knowledgeable but needy Head of Geography in one of our Academies, they can't afford these freebies constantly showered upon safe pair of hands Palin but would be more informative and a thousand times more appreciative of the free holiday that Palin seems to have come to see as his divine right. Jobs for the boys eh BBC? Twas ever thus I suppose...probabgly Palin's got an excellent and highly persuasive agent, so what chane would a Head of Geography have....none whatsoever. The rich get rich and the poor get poorer - aided and abetted by the BBC amongst others.

Evil whitey
Yet another BBC programme about how Europeans = evil, and everyomne else = poor wee victims. Can't believe my licence fee goes towards paying for this Cultural Marxism tripe.

Road to Rio Michael begins the third leg of his journey in the mineral-rich state of Minas Gerais, where he learns about the Brazilian mining industry and meets some of the people dedicated to overturning the environmental damage it causes. He then heads to Rio de Janeiro, focus of the next Olympics, where the authorities are ridding the streets of violent drug gangs that have controlled the city's shanty towns. On a lighter note, the globe-trotting broadcaster also learns to celebrate a goal like a well-known radio commentator and visits a `love hotel'
