Nice concept
4 May 2003 | by HarmenBSee all my reviews

I like the mix of "serious" bits of culture and the more bizarre, comical elements very much. I have to say I'm a real fan of Ian Wright, I always laugh my ass (excuse my French) off when he hosts a show.

I believe the series is called 'Globe Trekker' on Discovery Channel.
