Michael Palin: New Europe

Show Summary

Michael Palin: New Europe is the BBC travel series where Monty Python alum Michael Palin takes us along with him on his globe-trotting adventures. Michael's travels in New Europe show a world that has changed greatly since the collapse of the Iron Curtain and the end of the Cold War. Most of the perception of Europe focuses on Western Europe, forgetting that the countries in Eastern Europe are new to the western world. They are new nations with new governments trying to find their place in the post-Soviet world. Michael journeys on a voyage of discovery in places that were once forbidden, enjoying the new freedom to roam unhindered of places in his own continent which he previously couldn't visit. The series had seven episodes where Palin visits 20 countries, seeing places like Moldova, Estonia, Slovakia, Serbia, Albania, the Republic of Macedonia, and Herzegovina. Palin also released a companion book called New Europe, documenting the trip with photographs by Basil Pao.moreless
