Joanna Lumley (currently seen in travel docos on both ABC & SBS) has another on the way, Joanna Lumley’s Silk Road Adventure.
Launching this week in the UK, the series sees her travel from Venice to the Chinese border over 4 episodes.
“I’m embarking on a 7000-mile journey following the route of the legendary Silk Road, that throughout history helped spread all manner of foods, inventions and cultures across Asia and Europe…my most adventurous and exotic journey yet,” she said.
A perilous network of paths, the Silk Road shaped the modern world, bringing silk, printing, spices, gunpowder, and many other things, to the West. Joanna’s adventure will see her travel through a breath-taking array of fabulous landscapes as she crosses continents, deserts, mountains and steppe, boldly following in the footsteps of the merchants, conquerors, kings and pilgrims who once lived and died along this route.
Update: 7:40pm Sunday September 23 on ABC.
