Documentary Description

Michael Palin celebrates the 20th anniversary of his globe-trotting hit, Around The World In 80 Days, by searching for the crew of the wooden dhow Al Shama.

The eight-day voyage across the Arabian Sea to Bombay filmed 20 years ago has become a TV classic. Michael's search begins in Dubai, which has been transformed since he was last there in 1988. He soon moves on to what is now Mumbai. There, a helpful freight broker tells him what has befallen Al Shama. But there is better news of Captain Hasssan Suleyman, and Michael books himself onto the Kutch Express, which takes him far to the north, close to the Pakistani border.

But will his long search be crowned with a reunion with men with whom he forged a special bond, and on whom his life depended 20 years ago?
