As broadcast on BBC Radio 4, Giles Wemmbley Hogg is a traveller, ethnologist, connoisseur of all Eastern culture and philosophy - and an upper middle class student ponce! In his gap year, he is backpacking along the student trail to the exotic East, soaking up the culture and recording his experiences on a DAT machine. He then sends his missives home to his family in Budleigh Salterton, and in return they keep him up to date with events at the Yacht Club, his dad's golf handicap and the Budleigh in Bloom contest. Marcus Brigstocke stars as Giles in this very well-observed and well-produced spoof documentary series, which drew critical praise when first broadcast. Shows included are The Sudan, Bolivia, The Arctic, Thailand.
