Are any sections of foreign language dialogue subtitled? by osullic on 27 March 2015 12:11pm
 
I'm just curious about subtitles (or lack thereof) on the DVD releases of the various series. I'm talking about when someone is speaking a language other than English - not general English subtitles for the hard of hearing.

Are there any subtitles? Or do people just speak a foreign language with no subtitles for the viewer (to maybe emphasise the sense of travelling / being lost in a foreign land)? I know in some scenes an interpreter is used, so subtitles would be redundant in these cases.

Can you think of any scenes in the various series where someone speaking a foreign language is subtitled in English?

I've never seen subtitles on any of Mr Palin's travel programmes.
