A fellow blogger has alerted me to the fact that TV traveller Michael Palin is currently working on a series about the "New Europe". Palin and his camera crew have been spotted in various locations in the Balkans and Eastern Europe over the last few months. Most of his previous series have been about places that are unfamiliar to me - I'm looking forward to see what he makes of countries that I have already visited. Hopefully his high profile will help to improve the rather low level of knowledge of many of these countries in the English-speaking world.
