In the autumn of 1988 Michael Palin set out from the Reform Club to circumnavigate the world, following the route taken by Phileas Fogg in the epic novel of 1873.  His journey became a great 20th Century adventure and soon took its place
as a classic TV series.
Using only the modes of transport available
to Jules Verne’s hero, Michael Palin travels in 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 as his attempt to circumnavigate the world heralds a phenomenal journey of dhows, diarrhea, hungry parrots and a world full of surprises.
20 years later Michael Palin returned to the scene of one of the series most memorable sequences - when he sailed across the Persian Gulf from Dubai to Mumbai in a traditional dhow. Can he trace the men with whom he forged a special bond, and
on whom his life depended twenty years ago?
