BBC Worldwide Ltd
Video; Computer Resource; Online Video; Online
In this program, everyday people talk about things common to taking a trip: destinations, directions, and - sacre bleu! - getting the car repaired. In addition, the video profiles an octogenarian taking her maiden voyage in a hot air balloon and a group of students traveling the Canal du Midi via houseboat as they study the architecture and history of the region.
