It seems only fitting to have a documentary about a man that no-one could describe with unkind words.

From Monty Python, to Ripping Yarns, and to his travelogues, Michael Palin certainly qualifies for “national treasure” status. This look back at his varied career features contrubitons from John Cleese, David Jason, Connie Booth, Armando Iannucci and his travelogue producer Clem Vallance, as well as Palin himself.

Michael Palin: a Life on Screen is on BBC Two at 21.00.
