An Idiot Abroad: Desert Island

An Idiot Abroad
Karl Pilkington comes face to face with a Prince Philip worshipping tribe

The second series of the comedy travel show fronted by Karl Pilkington leaves the wonders of the modern world behind and instead challenges him to tick off things on his ‘bucket list’.

Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant give him the opportunity to try out new experiences including swimming with dolphins and driving along America’s renowned Route 66.

In the first edition, he spends a night on a private island in Vanuatu in the South Pacific, attempting bungee jumping and meeting a Prince Philip-worshipping tribe.

An Idiot Abroad: Desert Island (Series 2 episode 1) is scheduled for broadcast tonight (1 November) at 21.01 on BBC BRIT (DStv channel 120) with a repeat showing on Tuesday November 3 at 00:03.
