Synopsis

Monthly series of travel and exploration documentaries. This edition Odyssey looks at the opium trade and its consequences in the northern most hills of Thailand, on the border of Burma and Laos, the edge of the so called golden triangle. The programme also observes the way of life of the Shilluk, a tribe who have made Sudan their home for centuries. In addition, there is a trip along the Emporer's canal in China, and a visit to Belgium, the birthplace of the `Draught Horse Of Ardennes.
