Genre: Documentary, Adventure Travel

Michael Palin undertakes a journey by the most direct route possible (30 degrees longitude) with the most land to cross from the North Pole to the South Pole.

This is fabulous entertaining and educational stuff. He never ceases in being slightly British in appreciation and humour, without the stuffiness and the arrogance he sometimes encounters in other ex-British patriotes located in the countries he sometimes visits. He is always quirky and easily adaptable to the circumstances and adversities he encounters. He is always respectful of other human beings he encounters even in dire and sometimes miserable places. A remarkably truthful and funny human being we should all be proud of in sharing his travels and observations with us. He travels to places and shows really pleasure in sharing with us our world, even if only flirtingly, places we can only dream of perhaps, one day of also being able to visit.

1/3.
A series of films written and directed by Adam Curtis about how humans have been colonised by the machines they have built. Although we don't realise it, the way we see everything in the world today is through the eyes of the computers. The film tells the story of two perfect worlds. One is the small group of disciples around the novelist Ayn Rand in the 1950s. They saw themselves as a prototype for a future society where everyone could follow their own selfish desires. The other is the global utopia that digital entrepreneurs in Silicon Valley set out to create in the 1990s. Many of them were also disciples of Ayn Rand.

The booklets contain extensive notes (Eng/Fr) with recording dates and line-ups. 31 hours of music in each box, totalling 1677 tracks Each track has been restored and mastered from original sources. The only reason I can think of for there not yet being a review of these four boxed sets, is that those who own them are just too busy having one hell of a blast listening to them. Some people moan about the 50 year copyright law for audio recordings in Europe, but without it this highly entertaining, eye-opening and educational undertaking could never have taken place. These 100 discs (spread over four boxed sets of 25 discs) tell the story of jazz from 1898 to 1959.
