One for your watch list

Heading into week six as a self-isolating single, June had pretty much run out of box sets to watch.

Until yesterday evening that is, when she stumbled across the first episode of Mediterranean with Simon Reeve on BBC2.

One hour later she was hooked and, rather than wait for episode two next weekend, headed straight over to BBC iPlayer to binge watch the the rest of the series…

Originally broadcast in October 2018, it follows Simon as he embarks on an extraordinary four-part journey around the Mediterranean, uncovering the wild extremes that lie behind the tourist veneer.

From stunning scenery to terrifying tales of deprivation and despair, the stories he shares are both heartbreaking and heartwarming – if you’re looking for something that’s entertaining and enlightening in equal measure, this is definitely worth adding to your watch list.

The bad news is there are just four episodes in this particular series but there’s good news too…

Fourteen more multi-episode series featuring Simon’s epic journeys are still available over on iPlayer – no surprises for guessing how June will be passing the time as lockdown continues!
