Michael Palin's fascinating journey around the 18 countries on the Pacific Rim. Michael's journey through all the countries bordering the Pacific Ocean was anything but 'pacific' as blizzards, Bogota's Bullet Street and an Alaskan abandonment pushed him and the crew to the limit. But there was time for adventure including crawling through the Viet Cong's Cu Chi tunnels, sharing a feast with head-hunters in Borneo and helicoptering into New Zealand's Tasman glacier.

On the negative side this is now 19 years old. The 3 Gorges dam on the Yangtze river is no longer a dream. More positively it is a very candid and interesting trip round the Pacific rim. Michael Palin is one of the most likeable actors, but to be frank he starts to grate on the nerves after about 2 hours. I think he should have been allowed off centre shot for much longer. Some of the scenery is wonderful, some of the people and customs fascinating, Palin should be allowed to let us see them.
