For those who appreciate dry humour ...
This three disc collection includes shows drawn from those Meades has written and performed in since 1990. They belong to no genre but their own. They are staged essays, rehearsed artifices. They are biased and indifferent to 'balance'. By televisions standards they are visually elaborate and verbally complex. But theyre also comic entertainments, both witty and knockabout - they do not confuse seriousness with solemnity.
Acclaimed author and passionate traveller, Jonathan Meades shares his love of culture and adventure in these fascinating titles; ABROAD IN BRITAIN - IN SEARCH OF BOHEMIA and SEVERN HEAVEN, FURTHER ABROAD - BELGIUM and GET HIGH, EVEN FURTHER ABROAD - ABSENTEE LANDLORD, DOUBLE DUTCH and REMEMBER THE FUTURE, MEADES EATS... FAST FOOD, ABROAD AGAIN - FATHER TO THE MAN, and MAGNETIC NORTH episodes 1 and 2.
