Michael Palin in Brazil

Michael Palin in BrazilThe nation’s favourite traveller heads for Brazil in a new four-part series on BBC One at 9pm on Wednesday 24 October.

In his inimitable way he explores this vast nation from the Venezuelan border and forests of the Lost World down to the spectacular Iguacu Falls in the far South of the country. Journeys by river, plane, steam train and road allow him to reach a kaleidoscopic mix of people – we know he visits the biggest beer festival outside Munich, and we’re hoping he finds a glass of fabulous Brazilian wine on his travels too.

A book accompanies the series (Weidenfeld & Nicolson, £25; e-book, £12.99).
