Description

Welcome back Giles Wemmbley Hogg (2 'm's, 2 'g's) - traveller, backpacker, ethnologist, fearless investigator of cultural diversity, connoisseur of Eastern philosophy and upper middle-class student ponce. In this complete second series, Giles Wemmbley Hogg is now a student at the Universities of both Bristol and Durham (due to a bit of a slip on his UCAS form).

He is also a cultured man of the world - 'Travel' is his middle name (between St John and Leonard). These six episodes see him experience Tanzania, New Zealand, Cuba, Egypt, India and Germany - and becomes the first man ever to have to be literally cut out of a pair of lederhosen.

In Cuba. First, Giles goes on safari to darkest Africa ('...which is surprisingly bright') to Save The Giraffe - even though it didn't really need saving before he arrived.

In Germany, Giles goes in search of the world-famous Munich Oktoberfest.

But where is it held? And when? Next stop - Cuba ('..where I'm determined to be the best ruddy Socialist I can - money no object'), and then it's time to walk like an Egyptian, as Giles attempts to twin Cairo with that other cradle of civilisation: Budleigh Salterton. Then it's a chance to tour India with the Durham Uni Cricket First Eleven and to join an Ashram in an attempt to find peace, enlightenment and a decent Kashmir sweater for his dad. And finally, it's a flight to New Zealand ('where apparently, they filmed Lord of the Dance') for the romantic trip of a lifetime to see the girl he still loves marry someone else. Starring Marcus Brigstocke, with Catherine Tate as Arabella.
