Just saw a clip that the above is on Expressvu-Nat'l Geograhic channel 524 ) tomorrow night (Oct 21st) at 10 p.m. EST.
I watch almost nothing live these days.. a High Definition PVR sure makes TV watching much more enjoyable!The DVD is available in the discount bins here now.
You get more footage no ads and you can fast forward through the 5 minutes of boring repetition at the beginning of each episode.
It looked like a good show, although when it's cut down to two hours I'm really sure that a lot of the interesting stuff wound up on the cutting room floor.
It's good to read the book and watch the series. The book has things which aren't on film but which add more background info to what you are seeing on the screen.The full TV series will probably have a lot more content. (I already have the book!)
Any excuse not to go to the theatre!The DVD is 6 one hour episodes so even allowing for 10 minutes of repetition and the beginning and previews at the end of each episode you still get around 5 hours of film for the price of a couple of movie tickets.
Yeah, I bought the book from the Long Way Round, and was glad to have some of the bits in the show explained in more detail. Like the episode in Russia where the car passed and pointed a gun at them. (Not shown in the show, but mentioned just the same.)It's good to read the book and watch the series.
