The British Academy Award-winning series of ten programmes 6: The Story ef
Charles Montague Doughty and his extraordinary journey through Arabia in 1876 Written by DAVID HOWARTH Introduced by David Attenborough from the Royal Geographical Society, London.
It was a lunatic idea. He dressed as an Arab while boasting he was a Christian. The fierce nomads of the desert would surely kill Charles Doughty on sight. There was little hope for him. Yet this strange and intense Englishman was determined to try to reach the Holy City of Mecca, religious capital of the Moslem Empire. His journey was a catalogue of appalling suffering. Many times he nearly perished. But years later Lawrence of Arabia was to report that since his journey Doughty had become something of a Bedouin legend. The Arabs told tales of him.
The series goes from strength to strength, (OBSERVER)
Vivid excitement. (SUNDAY MIRROR)
To my mind closer to the essence of desert living than the large-scale romantic film ' Lawrence of Arabia '.
