Michael Palin in North Korea

The comedy actor presents two programmes documenting life for many of the millions who live, work and have families in North Korea. Michael's arrival coincides with the historic meeting between North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un and South Korean president Moon Jae-In, as he embarks on a journey of some 1,300 miles of the reclusive nation south to north visiting sites and locations rarely, if ever, explored by Westerners, determined to spend time with everyday Korean citizens from all walks of life.
