Around the World in 80 Days - Ancient Mariners

Michael Palin and his film crew continue their journey in the footsteps of Phileas Fogg. They drive right across Arabia in only 40 hours to make up for lost time. In Dubai they hitch a lift on a very primitive sailing boat and come close to danger in the Strait of Hormuz when the engine fails and they drift among the mines sown during the Iran-Iraq war.
