Last night, I happened across a programme called ‘Joanna Lumley in the Land of the Northern Lights’ on BBC iPlayer and was instantly intrigued. I am a fan of Joanna Lumley and am fascinated by the Northern Lights, and so this programme was right up my street!
Boy, oh, boy, I wasn’t disappointed!
Remarkable, at times poignant and wholly magical documentary peppered with Lumley’s own style and humour. Breathtaking views and the glimpse of the Aurora towards the end was absolutely stunning. It actually moved me to tears, which I completely wasn’t expecting!
Randomly, I was looking at the adverts on the Tube today and the one opposite me was for exactly the same trip that Joanna Lumley went on – the itinerary was exactly the same! Fairly expensive, but something that I am seriously considering saving up for… “Hurtigruten”
If you have a spare hour, I really would suggest watching it if you can!
** UPDATE: I believe that this programme is to be sold as a DVD from 7th September (in the UK)… I am unsure about other territories – please check your usual stockists! 🙂 **
