Looking foward to it...

"Joanna Lumley attempts to realise her life's ambition in a one-off special film for BBC One.

Travelling north across the Arctic Circle up through Norway and finally to Svalbard, Joanna takes viewers on a very personal journey as she hopes to see the spell-binding Northern Lights in Joanna Lumley: Land Of The Northern Lights"

I wonder if BBC America will show it. I'd love to see it.

Kim, I think it is the type of programme BBC America show, so you might be in luck. Joanna was on Richrd & Judy the other week and they showed this clip from it...

I'll keep an eye out for it then. I just clicked on the link you provided but they took the video off. I wonder why?

Hmm...I just get the message that the video is no longer available. I'll go check BBC America and see if the show is available there.

I'd like to see this, too. This is one of the problems with being an Anglophile on the wrong side of the pond. I remember they showed Joanna Lumley in the Kingdom of the Thunder Dragon once, but it was in my pre-TNA days, and I wasn't interested, alas.

It seems that any videoblogs and podcasts to YouTube made by the BBC (including BBCWorldwide, bbcworldnews, BBCCollective) can only be seen in the UK territories.

It's probably blocked for people outside the UK. I think that is so sad!
I will tape and if you would like a copy on DVD I'll send you a copy Very Happy

This time they are direct to the point.."This video is not available in your country."

Come on Timeless, you, me and ShaggE will go for a swim across the pond. We'll strap the tv to ShaggE's back, swim to the UK, watch a few shows that we aren't allowed to see here, and hitch hike back when we're done!

Don't tempt me. I may never leave. "Wait! Wait! I haven't been to Selfridge's yet!" Very Happy

I don't need a week. I need a decade.

If you turn the sound up on your pc you can hear the faint sound of a raspberry being blown...

I'll bring the sandwhiches and the beer! Of course, a friend and I have been talking about selling everything we own, take a plane to Hawaii and live in a cave...we won't need much, just a couple of fishing poles, some stolen coconuts and pineapples...Just think, no snow to shovel this winter, no traffic, no customer complaints about prices... Very Happy

Just a reminder that this programme is shown this evening.

"The actress travels up through Norway to Svalbard, the most northerly permanently inhabited place on Earth, where she experiences temperatures approaching minus 30 degrees Celsius. Her aim is to fulfil a lifetime ambition to see natural phenomenon the Northern Lights. Along the way she explores the fjords of Lofoten, learns to ride a snowmobile and spends a night in a hotel made of ice"

Darn, I wish someone over here was showing it. Maybe one day.

It amuses me that the little description says "temperatures approaching -30 Celcius". Having grown up in the prairies, that's cold, but not the coldest (though I hate to perpetuate the stereotype that Canada is a land of ice and snow. Winters in my area are pretty mild. All depends where you are). It's all relative, eh?
