Joanna Lumley’s Unseen Adventures

I’ve been lucky enough to visit some incredible places over the years. Travel is my passion, it’s in my blood. What you eventually see on your screen takes weeks to shoot and months to edit and we didn’t always have time to show you everything we filmed. We have kept the unseen stories safe and now I can reveal this treasure trove!” Joanna Lumley

Series overview

Actress, presenter and much-loved travelling companion Joanna Lumley returns with this brand new three-part series, to share her previously unseen travelling adventures. Joanna goes back as far east as Japan and all across the world to Cuba in the west, to share her treasure trove of unseen stories and give viewers an insight into how her travel programmes are made and why she loves to make them.

Featuring behind the scenes footage and outtakes, we join Joanna at home as she recalls some of her most memorable journeys and hidden gems from her travels. The series offers viewers the chance to escape back to some incredible countries and enjoy their breath-taking scenery, with the added joy of witnessing what really happened along the way - from translation struggles, to filming with an overzealous dog and the challenges of extreme weather conditions.

Produced by Burning Bright Productions for ITV.

Episode 3 - Iran to Cuba

Travel is Joanna Lumley’s passion. She has travelled the world for ITV, thousands of miles that take weeks to shoot and months to edit. Inevitably, she has never been able to show us everything – but now she is revealing unseen stories and special moments of how these journeys are made, and why she loves making them. In this last episode, we find Joanna in Iran exploring the tomb of Cyrus the Great before following the Silk Road through Azerbaijan, Georgia and onto Venice. Then off to Haiti and Cuba for some unseen adventures in the Caribbean.
