Alas, Griff Rhys Jones

From Afternoons, 3:10 pm on 27 August 2018

Dangling from a skyscraper washing windows in New York City is just another day at the office for British comedian and travel show host Griff Rhys Jones. His career took off on programmes like Not the Nine O'Clock News and Alas Smith and Jones, but about 10 years ago the BBC started asking him to do travel programmes and documentaries.

He shares his insights into the value of travel, the definition of wanderlust and why you should grab your passport if you have to jump off a burning ship in a new stage show called Where was I? which is coming to New Zealand in November.
