Episode Summary

Michael Palin optimistically steps out into the historic Pall Mall in London. He aims to return to this very spot in 80 days having circumnavigated the globe. He will follow the route of Jules Verne's fictional hero as closely as possible, travelling by land and sea but, never by air. All begins well but modern air travel has destroyed nautical travel and decimated the global rail lines.moreless
