An amazing journey in Norway's Far North as Joanna Lumley pursues a lifelong dream to track down the elusive stunningly beautiful Northern Lights. Joanna grew up in tropical Malaysia and as a little girl never saw snow or felt cold. Inspired by fairytales and picture books she always longed to make the journey north. At last she travels north across the Arctic Circle up through Norway to Svalbard the most northerly permanently inhabited place on Earth where she has to cope with temperatures approaching minus 30 deg C. With a box of crayons in hand her journey takes... her from train to boat to husky-sled to snowmobile as she is pulled ever northwards by what she calls 'the strongest point of the compass'. She explores the romantic fjords of Lofoten and learns to ride a snowmobile speeding across endless expanses of Lapland tundra with a Sami herdsman in search of his reindeer. As she reaches the Arctic Ocean she prepares for bed in a hotel made entirely of ice. Everywhere she goes she asks about the mysterious Northern Lights. [show more]
