Michael Palin Travels To Brazil

To most Americans, Michael Palin is known for being a member of Monty Python and for playing the stutterer in “A Fish Called Wanda.” But to Brits (and a few ex-colonials), Palin is also known as a superb host of round-the-world travel documentaries. His latest series is on Brazil, the first episode of which premieres on BBC One in Britain on October 24. Except for those clever or devious enough to pirate the series online (you know who you are), the rest of us will have to make do until the series is broadcast overseas. Meanwhile, there’s a companion book to the Brazil series; read an excerpt here.
