Join Michael Palin, Monty Python stalwart and intrepid globetrotter, for a glimpse of life inside the notoriously secretive Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, a land without internet or phone signal, where the countryside still operates as a peasant economy, but where the cities have gleaming skyscrapers and luxurious underground train stations. 

In this illustrated talk, Michael Palin will give the inside story of his acclaimed Channel 5 documentary, delivered with his trademark warmth and wit. He’ll recount his conversations with the country’s inhabitants, talk candidly about his encounters with officials, and give us a unique insight into a country entirely unlike any other he has visited, a country that inspires fear and fascination in equal measure.

Ticket combinations for this Penguin Live event include a pre-signed copy of Michael Palin’s new book, North Korean Journal.
