Michael Palin author image

Join Michael Palin - Monty Python stalwart and intrepid globetrotter - for a glimpse of life inside the notoriously secretive Democratic People’s Republic of Korea. Here is a land without internet or phone signal, where the countryside still operates as a peasant economy while the cities boast gleaming skyscrapers and luxurious underground commuter stations.

In this photographic  talk, Michael Palin will give the inside story of his acclaimed Channel 5 documentary, delivered with his trademark modesty and good humour . He’ll draw on personal  conversations with the country’s inhabitants, talk candidly about his encounters with officials, and offer us a unique insight into a country entirely unlike any other he has visited - one that inspires fear and fascination in equal measure.

Every ticket purchase includes a copy of Michael Palin’s new book, North Korea Journal (RRP £14.99)

This is a Penguin Live and How To: Academy co-production.
