Around the World in 80 Days
Michael Palin, London, 1989.
It's impossible to list all the individuals, companies, organisations and governments who helped me round the world. Most are in the book. Among those who aren't, I would especially like to thank: Romany Helmy, Don Bannerman, Captain Bill Nelson, Shernaz Italia, Bruno Burigana, Ian Markham-Smith, Mark Tozer, Sandy Gall, Alan Whicker, Huw Young-Jones, Dave Thomas, Howard Billingham, Brian Hall, Kitty Anderson, Anne James, Alison Davies and, at BBC Books, Linda Blakemore, Sarah Hoggett and Suzanne Webber.
*Note about my Passepartout
Clem Vallance and Roger Mills (with production assistants Angela Elbourne and Ann Holland) travelled all the way with me. Nigel Meakin, Ron and Julian filmed me to Hong Kong, then Nigel Walters, Dave and Simon brought me home.
