Paul Merton in India (2008)
Tuesday 15th December 2009
Having conquered China, comedian Paul Merton set his sights on India, an astonishingly diverse country of one billion people. Paul beats his own path around this enormous subcontinent, shunning the traditional tourist spots in favour of unexpected sights and surprising detours, to see 'his India'. Join Paul Merton on his adventures in Paul Merton in India, available on DVD on 11th January 2010 from 2entertain.
Paul Merton brings his own unique perspective to a land of startling contradictions in a series that provides a fresh and engaging glimpse of a vast and varied country. Wandering off the typical tourist trails, Paul readily follows his own instincts taking us on a personal odyssey where a delicate balance of heart and humour exposes an unfamiliar side to this economic powerhouse.
Follow Paul on a surreal and intense journey from crowded city streets to the harsh beauty of rural India; from the rugged terrain of the North to the sultry heat of the South.
Paul's Indian adventure sees him hang out with a gang of Eunuchs; dine with convicted criminals in a high security prison; learn to 'rock' on stage Indian style, and get swamped by thousands of naked holy men at a remote hilltop festival.
Facing angry elephants, delinquent monkeys, spitting cobras and holy rats along the way Paul discovers an 'alternative' India in this colourful travel documentary.
