Michael Palin explores former Iron Curtain countries. High in the Tatra mountains of Slovakia, Michael learns how to make sausages before heading off to Turba's mime school in Brno. In the spa town of Karlovy Vary, he has a mud bath with Miss World, followed by a pedalo ride in Prague.
Entering the former East Germany in Dresden, he learns from a student that despite Germany's unification there is still a wall inside people's heads, before ending his trip on the Baltic island of Rugen.
