Michael Palin - One of the longest television pieces I've... | Facebook
"One of the longest television pieces I've ever had to deliver (apart from GBH) was a monologue as a policeman for The Innes Book Of Records. It was filmed on a cold day in a bleak part of Bristol called Lawrence Hill. It went on so long that the cameraman kept thinking I'd finished. How did I do it in one take? My diary for March 2nd 1981 gives the secret away. "Feel especially pleased that I managed to do my three to four minute monologue without a fluff, after two pints of Wadsworth's 6X at lunchtime.""

How to Find Michel de Montaigne's Estate (Or Get Hopelessly Lost Trying) | Literary Hub
“Directions from Bordeaux to Château Michel de Montaigne

The night before: Note train times from Gare Bordeaux-St. Jean to Gare de Castillon, but wait to purchase tickets until you arrive at the station. Tonight, arrange for a taxi to pick you up when your train arrives to drive you to Château Michel de Montaigne. Arrangements can be made at your hotel’s concierge desk, the Bordeaux tourism information office, or by good old-fashioned yellow pages and cellphone. Write down the taxi company’s phone number, and keep it with you in case of emergency. Retrieve cash from an ATM to pay your taxi driver. Charge your cell phone overnight.

Day of travel: Leave early in the morning with enough time to enjoy a full day at the château, travel included. Pack a picnic lunch and plenty of drinking water—neither are available at the estate. Take a city bus from your lodging to Gare Bordeaux-St. Jean (one-way trip, €1,60). Allow fifteen minutes at the station to purchase tickets, locate the platform, and board your train.

– At Gare Bordeaux-St. Jean: Purchase a one-way ticket to Castillon at a freestanding yellow SNCF kiosk, noting return train times. Find your ticket’s corresponding platform, and board the train at least two minutes before it is scheduled to depart (~45-minute ride to Castillon, €12).

– At Gare de Castillon: Find your taxi in the parking lot. If the car hasn’t arrived, call the company or ask for help at the ticket window. Say hello to your driver and hop in the car (~15-minute taxi ride to the chateau, €10). Important: before you exit the taxi, pre-arrange a return trip to Gare de Castillon by asking the driver to pick you up at a specified time.

– At Chateau Michel de Montaigne: Visiting the chateau is free, but the tour—and the only way to see inside the tower—costs € Enter the small gift shop and buy a ticket. Wander the grounds and eat lunch before the tour begins. After the tour, buy at least one bottle of “Les Essais” wine to take home (€8-20, depending on vintage). Wait for your taxi to arrive for your return trip to Gare de Castillon (~15-minute ride, €10). Allow enough time to drive to the station, buy a ticket, and board the train at least two minutes before it is scheduled to depart.

– At Gare de Castillon: Buy your return ticket at the window inside the station. If the ticket window is closed, board the train anyway and purchase your ticket from the staff member checking tickets who will come to your seat (~45-minute ride, €12).

– Total cost of this trip: ~€50 (less of an expense if taxi, wine, and memories are shared with an adventurous, trusting, and forgiving companion).”
