Charley Boorman's South African Adventure

Hello,

For fellow UK residents planning a trip this year to S.A. , Charley Boorman's 'Adventure' starts it's season on Channel 5 on 9th Jan at 8.00pm.

Hoping this will help me make my mind up about the shape of my forthcoming trip, or more likely just make me wish I had more time to spend.

Thanks for the information. Incase you are unaware David Attenborough started a fabulous 6 part series on Africa last night on BBC 1 @ 9pm.

If you are interested and missed the 1st episode you can catch it on iplayer. Episode 3 on Jan 16 covers some of Cape Town & the garden Route. Enjoy!

We are off to S A for 3 weeks in March for our first vist, can't wait! :)

I hope no-one minds but because I enjoyed it so much I'm going to add a plug for a series that was produced locally a couple of years ago: A Country Imagined. Fronted by Johnnie Clegg who drives a bakkie around most of the country over 13 episodes and does almost no tourist Must-Does, it focuses on culture and history. Decidedly Palinesque in concept and some of the scripting - at times I felt they should be including him in the credits - but I found it authentically local nevertheless. It's still available on dvd to the best of my knowledge.

Hi,

The David Attenborough is indeed a must - stunning photography & views of wildlife you couldn't hope to see for yourself.

I had a search round Uk & European web sites for Johhny Clegg TV series, of course I have heard his music (my sister was a big fan at one time), didn't know he had done a tv series. On you recommendation I have ordered the series from a company in S.A. and look forward viewing it.

Thanks to both of you for the extra information.
