Michael palin: a life on screen

I would just like to flag up this rather glowing tribute to Michael Palin which the BBC broadcast last night. I think Palin is one of my all-time favourite TV personalities, and it was great to see his epic fifty year career celebrated last night. I’ve always loved his travel programmes, and getting to watch Monty Python Live in 2014 will probably always be one of the highlights of my life. When a clip of that evening was shown last night, I had a fit of the squeals. As I wrote here after I went to see him speak live, something about Palin’s travelogues makes me want to go out and explore. I really hope he makes more, although I think that’s now rather unlikely. Nevertheless, it was good to see the beeb pay this timely, well-deserved tribute to him.
