Publisher's Summary

The complete BBC Radio 4 satirical comedy series about a seasoned presenter of travel documentaries, Brian Gulliver, who finds himself in a hospital's secure unit after claiming to have experienced a succession of bizarre adventures.

In series one we hear about Brian's travels in Gelbetia, a country run by doctors; Juradia, where every other person is a lawyer; Osminia, a land where marriage is outlawed; Sham, a country where alternative therapies abound; Erosia, which has a very different view of sexual politics; and Jampoa, where fame definitely equals fortune.

In series two we hear about Brian's travels in Chamanoa, where genetics is pitted against education; Lessington, where ignorance reigns; Gravinia and Plumpf, a land where the military are revered above everything; Anidara, where he finds himself put out to stud; Hermicia, where charity is strangely in abundance; and Kognitia, where selective memory is taken to a new extreme.

Starring Neil Pearson as Brian Gulliver, the cast also includes Duncan Wisby, Vicki Pepperdine, Lisa Dillon, Colin Hoult, Toby Longworth, Adrian Scarborough, Dan Tetsell, Barunka O'Shaughnessy, Debra Stephenson, Colin Hoult, Nina Conti, Jo Bobin and Marcus Brigstocke.

Produced by Steven Canny.

Brilliant

One word. Brilliant! Just realised there has to be fifteen. Ok. Wonderful absurdity and a lovable rogue combine to wisk you of to far away lands.

hillarious and thought provoking

Loved it listened to this multiple times funny yet thought provoking concepts each episode a bit like black mirror but funny and focusing more on what if x y and z were the society norms as opposed to the technological advancement focus in black mirror.
