About the Event
North Korea is a land without internet or phone signal, where the countryside still operates as a peasant economy while the cities boast gleaming skyscrapers and luxurious underground commuter stations.
In this photographic talk, Michael Palin will give the inside story of his acclaimed Channel 5 documentary, delivered with his trademark modesty and good humour. He’ll draw on personal conversations with the country’s people, talk candidly about his encounters with officials, and offer us a unique insight into a country entirely unlike any other he has visited - one that inspires fear and fascination in equal measure.
Every ticket includes a copy of North Korea Journal (RRP £14.99).
