Michael Palin is off again, this time to the seemingly desolate Sahara Desert. Theres no easy way across, as he and his team discover on their most challenging expedition yet.p
From a starting point in Gibralter, Michael makes his way to Morocco, then over the Atlas Mountains to the little-known countries of Mauritania, Mali, and Chad. He travels on the longest train in the world, meets with the Paris-Dakar Rally in the middle of nowhere, and sees the worlds largest mud mosque before arriving in Timbuktu.p
Then its a journey with nomadic herders and a camel caravan, to Algeria and a recently re-opened Libya. Finally, Michael returns to the classical remains of Tunisia, where ILife of BrianI was filmed and he was crucified.p
The mysterious, barren desert is revealed to be a place full of people, landscapes, and stories, a vibrant land with a history of civilisation, trade, and conquest stretching from the ancient Egyptians to the oil-rich Islamic republics of today.
