Extraordinary Journeys with Simon Reeve.

8pm, BBC Two

Reeve has been confined to his sofa for the the greater part of this earlier

12 months, just like the rest of us, and so this new series supplies some

welcome wanderlust in revisiting clips from the quite a few journeys he has

taken in excess of the final 15 years. This opening instalment focuses on the

people he has achieved on his travels, such as the courageous Burmese human

rights campaigner who led him undercover into the state in 2010, as

effectively as an psychological come across with a Bangladeshi baby employee. Ammar Kalia

sector for the travelers. Hannah Verdier

sequence sees Alice (Hawes) grappling with her late spouse Harry’s

secrets and recoiling from standard funeral ideas. Graeme Virtue
