Sri Lanka with Alexander Armstrong

3 × 60"2023


Alexander Armstrong travels around the island of Sri Lanka, discovering a vibrant and ancient set of cultures from the Sinhalese areas in the central and southern regions to the Tamil north. Now a destination for everything from the most modern urban sophistication to laid back surf cafes, Sri Lanka has started to recover from a long civil war and incredible natural disasters to welcome the sort of visitors - the British, the Dutch, the Portuguese - who used to be the colonial powers here. Along the way he meets some unforgettable characters - human, elephant…and reptile.
