Actress, presenter, and much-loved travelling companion Joanna Lumley returns with this brand-new three-part series, to share her previously unseen travelling adventures.
Joanna goes back as far east as Japan and across the world to Cuba in the west, to share her treasure trove of unseen stories and give viewers an insight into how her travel programs are made and why she loves to make them.
Featuring behind-the-scenes footage and outtakes, we join Joanna at home as she recalls some of her most memorable journeys and hidden gems from her travels.
The series offers viewers the chance to escape back to some incredible countries and enjoy their breathtaking scenery, with the added joy of witnessing what really happened along the way – from translation struggles, to filming with an overzealous dog and the challenges of extreme weather conditions.
The first episode starts in the far east on the frozen Japanese sea of Okhotsk, she takes us across China, Mongolia, and ends at Lake Baikal in Siberia, where she meets some amazing seals.
“I’ve been lucky enough to visit some incredible places over the years. Travel is my passion; it is in my blood. What you eventually see on your screen takes weeks to shoot and months to edit and we didn’t always have time to show you everything we filmed. We have kept the unseen stories safe and now I can reveal this treasure trove!”
