Hi everyone,

I was just on amazon.co.uk looking for travel guides for my upcoming trip to tibet when I came across some deleted DVD scenes from Michael Palin's Himalaya DVD. He's in Tibet and it's gorgeous - made me even more excited to go!

Anyone who is planning a trip to tibet (or who has ever wanted to) should definitely check it out!

I was seriously dissappointed with the way the BBC let Mr Palin bumble around the Himalayas for a few months. Yes he is a very funny man, and I love Money Python too, but the documentary was full of cheap laughs at the expense of Tibetans....

i enjoyed the dvd but remember that michael palin is a millionaire paid by the BBC, has many MANY people to carry his equipment, book his travel/accomodation etc... your experience may be a little different
