TUESDAY 28 Dec at 7pm: Michael Palin's "Sahara" with Bear Silvershade
"Sahara is one of the most powerful and evocative names on the worldmap. As a child, the images I had of the Sahara were both frighteningand intriguing - palm trees, camels, turbanned travellers reclining,whilst being poured sparkling water by urn-carrying maidens in flimsyveils. It looked fun. I also knew that most western explorers whotried to cross it never came back. The combination of seduction andseverity appealed to me."
