    Krish Majumdar was the series director on this wonderful entertainment confection.

    Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant's favourite pal Karl Pilkington has written off the Seven Wonders of the World as “a bit s**t” having never seen any of them with his own eyes so they decide to send their friend to each one in an effort to broaden his mind - and offer them a very great deal of cruel amusement.

    Little Englander and reluctant tourist Karl is dispatched to the Great Wall of China, Christ the Redeemer in Brazil, Petra in Jordan, Machu Picchu in Peru, Chichen Itza in Mexico, the Taj Mahal in India and the Great Pyramids of Egypt.

    An Idiot Abroad proved to be a phenomenon, both in terms of viewing figures and Xmas DVD sales, breaking records for Sky in both arena.  A second series was rapidly recommissioned for 2011.
