Michael Palin reads from his second volume of memoirs. Monty Python lives on as well as Michael's other films such as The Missionary, Private Function and A Fish Called Wanda.

We also hear how he makes friends with a cast of luminaries including John Cleese, Terry Jones, Alan Bennett, George Harrison, Jamie Lee Curtis - and a globally famous pig called Betty.

And stitched into his entries are glimpses of a rich family life, which is often joyful, funny, and, at times, poignant, with his sister Angela.
