[edit] Information

Joanna Lumley heads off on a journey to visits important places in the spice trade.

[edit] Chapter 1: Indonesia

Beginning in the remote Indonesian islands so small that her first challenge is finding them on a map. She meets a family on the Banda Islands making their living from harvesting nutmeg and uncovers the dark history of Banda's past.

[edit] Chapter 2: India

Joanna returns to her birthplace, in search of a kitchen cupboard staple once known as 'black gold'. Starting in the majestic ancient city of Hampi, she's invited to a dazzling Hindu festival by a local rock climber. Then it's onwards to the lush backwaters of Kerala, where she meets a great grandmother who teaches the oldest martial art in the world and spends the night in a magical houseboat inspired by the old spice traders.

[edit] Chapter 3: Madagascar

Joanna continues her journey on the African island of Madagascar, where she discovers the secrets of the world's second most expensive spice, vanilla. She also searches for gold with a poor gold-mining community, and finds out how cacao is used to make some of the world's best chocolate. Later, Joanna travels to the tourist island of Nosy Be, where the men participate in a dangerous martial art called Morengy and the women are paving the way for female equality.

[edit] Chapter 4: Zanzibar and Jordan

The last leg of Joanna's journey takes her by dhow to Zanzibar, the spice island of Africa where merchants from around the world have left their mark on the architecture, religion and music. Finally, she travels to Jordan where the spice trail continued on land. She explores the vast plains of Wadi Rum from the back of a camel, meets one of the last nomadic Bedouin families and visits Za'atari refugee camp, home to Jordan's newest arrivals. Her journey ends at the one of the great wonders of the world, the ancient city of Petra.
