Channel 5
Michael Palin arrives in Pyongyang in the opening part of this world exclusive documentary series filmed at a critical time in North Korea's history. There, he gets his first look at a country that has been cut off from the outside world for 70 years, and meets the guides who will follow his every move. They visit the two 22-metre-tall statues of Kim Il-Sung and Kim Jong-Il, before taking in a government-run health spa, which offers punters 12 "recommended" haircuts. Michael also witnesses propaganda art being created in front of his eyes. The next day is May Day, a national holiday and a chance to party with ordinary, dance-loving locals.
