Watch Michael Palin discuss narrating his latest audiobook

We sat down with Michael Palin while he was in the studio recording his new audiobook, Erebus, to ask about the process of narrating.

In September 2014 the wreck of a sailing vessel was discovered at the bottom of the sea in the frozen wastes of the Canadian Arctic. It was broken at the stern and covered in a woolly coat of underwater vegetation. Its whereabouts had been a mystery for over a century and a half. Its name was HMS Erebus.

Now Michael Palin - former Monty Python stalwart and much-loved television globetrotter - brings this extraordinary ship back to life, following it from its launch in 1826 to the epic voyages of discovery that led to glory in the Antarctic and to ultimate catastrophe in the Arctic. 

In this video he talks about narrating the audiobook edition of Erebus.
