Product Description

Product Description

Billy's going to the edge of the world and he's taking us with him. In the summer of 2008 Billy Connolly set sail on a 10-week journey from ocean to ocean, from the Atlantic to the Pacific by way of the North West Passage. This legendary route deep within the Arctic Circle has thwarted explorers and fortune-hunters for centures and now you can experience Billy Connolly's adventure on DVD.

My view of the DVD is coloured by two facts - I know most of the area covered very well, and I worked on the film for two days at Telegraph Creek. The downside to that perspective is that I see that there are many shots placed out of order in the film, and that's primarily why I gave the DVD 4 stars instead of 5. The upside of my perspective is that having worked closely with Billy I see how well both the country and his character come across in the film. Contrary to what I've seen in other reviews, Billy loves people, and that came across in the time I spent with him, and in the film.

The film shows Billy travelling the way I like to - seeing the world in detail. Although we only get to meet a small sampling of the people he met, and to experience a small sampling of the places he saw, what we do get to see has been beautifully recorded - beautiful not only in the scenic sense but in the spiritual sense. What we see in the film truly is Billy at his best, and northern Canada at its best. My lasting memory of Billy will be seeing him in front of his tiny cabin in the middle of nowhere, all alone, smoking a cigar and savouring the incredible view - that's the Billy that you'll get to meet in this film.

The 2-disc DVD set is absolutely amazing! Let's face it, how many of us can/will afford the time, money and will to undertake a cross-country journey across the Artic Sea? Billy Connolly shows us the great beauty of the Canadian wilderness. The great scenery footage with spunky country music lets us experience in great details, Inuit, First Nation and settler cultures such as throat singing, seal hunting, camp sauna, moose hunting, bear tracking, whale sighting etc. He brings us images of bare, cold, rugged landscapes where we would probably not make the trip! You can feel the warm hospitality of Inuit, First Nation and settlers in the Canada's north in the video and sympathize with them as they continue to preserve their tranquil and simple lifestyles despite the rapid pace of modernization of Canada's urban cities. Highly recommended!

If you are a fan of Billy Connelly these various series of him travelling to various countries are superb and seeing places that even tourists might not get to see when they visit these places. Great.

His best travel dvd yet, just the travelling no humour clips. There is an extra 50 mins on unseen billy and some behind the scenes footage. I personnaly loved watching the journey and love his enthusiasm for all things beautiful, even though his taste in art is not mine I admire the mans passion. It was a trip I would liked to have taken myself and was a touch jealous but Im glad Billy took me on the tour of places I will not see and feel touched that I now have. The old lady in the wilderness was a real star. Educational, stunning scenery and a top guy, what more could you ask, even the book to accompany is brill, i got it for £10 off amazon and relived the journey.

A great travelogue about Northern Canada (East to West).
I learned a lot about my country and its northern people.

I bought this for my husband's birthday this month. We had seen some of the series on TV previously and thoroughly enjoyed it. Billy's sense of humour is the backdrop to this wonderful trip across the top of Canada down to Vancouver Island. His personality shines through his interaction with the many and varied characters he meets whilst on his journey. With some quite moving insights into his more private thoughts. Apart from a few 'adult' concepts and bits of language, this is family viewing for most part.
Stunning views; rich and interesting encounters with communities and individuals;and a very amiable and heartwarming travel companion.

In "Journey to the Edge of the World", Billy Connolly takes the viewer on a fantastic trip around the incredibly beautiful perimeter of Canada, from Nova Scotia up to the Arctic Circle and back down to British Columbia. Billy exhibits an extensive knowledge of the places he visits and a wonderful rapport with the people he meets. Seeing how humans not only survive, but flourish, in such remote regions is fascinating.
