Michael's fairground ride - Michael Palin's New Europe - BBC - Crimea

Made in 2010, this BBC video is very interesting because of what a young Crimean girl, called Anea, has to say about Stalin, Lenin, and the Soviet Union.

Michael Palin visits the tourist resort town of Yalta in the Ukraine to learn how much the local population know about the historic Yalta Peace Conference and try out the local fairground attractions. Interesting video From BBC travel documentary, Palin's New Europe. Watch more high quality videos on the new BBC Worldwide YouTube channel here:

The video below is just for interest, it's not political.

North Korea's traffic cops are the most mesmerising thing ever...

Delightful video.

Michael Palin seems hilarious even when he talks about mundane things, because, in his travelogues, we constantly expect a wry quip from him at any moment.

Sardonic yet "innocent."
