Michael Palin on BBC1 - Margate & Yalta


So pleasing to see my home town of Margate mentioned on Michael Palin's travel programme this evening. Years ago, Margate & Yalta were "twinned" with each other. Judging by tonight's programme, Yalta appears to be holding up as a seaside resort rather better! Having said that, the above photo from 2003, shows a reasonably busy Margate seafront.

Jeremy- just thought I'd mention it if you didn't know- there is a film on at the NFT website about Margate in the fifties which looks really interesting. Palin is great- its the way in particular that he has very little sense of self, you get the sense that he really enjoys being with people and talking to them.

I reckon Adelaide would be a great twin city. We have lovely beaches and better weather.
