In the autumn of 1988, Michael set out to circumnavigate the world, following the route taken by the fictional character Phileas Fogg from Jules Verne’s epic novel of 1873. Michael’s journey became a 20th-century adventure like no other as he battled through thick and thin in an attempt to finish within 80 days, on his arrival back in the UK.
20 years later, Michael returns to the scene of one of the most memorable sequences of the series – the journey across the Arabian Sea from Dubai to Mumbai in a traditional dhow. Can he find the men with whom he forged a special bond, and on whom his life depended two decades ago?
Includes all six episodes from the original series.
