The veteran broadcaster talks about his passion for the Cambodian rainforest, and why blue shirts and chinos are such a travel essential
Issue 79 | 79 april-may 2006
For how long? I suppose I’ll have to say jungle. But I wouldn’t want to go there for more than a month.
Where was your biggest travel disappointment?
Returning to places that I visited 50 years ago and finding the forest has been completely cut down.
Where lives up to the hype?
Angkor Wat in 1960. I haven’t been back since, but seeing all those temples in the Cambodian rainforest – they were totally deserted – was wonderful.
What do you always take with you?
My front door key. Also, continuity on the programmes is important so I always take the same clothes: a blue shirt and chinos.
If you had a magic carpet where would you go?
There’s no place like home. When anybody asks me where I really want to be, it has to be at home.
