Listen in pop-out player

Pascale Harter introduces personal stories, insight and wit from BBC correspondents and journalists around the world. In this edition, tales of the unexpected in tourism. BBC producer Tim Mansel sailed to the Antarctic expecting to find chilly, even desolate isolation - but soon found it was unexpectedly hard to find anywhere quiet, whether on the boat itself, or on the shores of remote Deception Island. Meanwhile, Rahul Tandon finds the beaches and poolsides of India surprisingly empty of visitors - or local ones, at least. But why? Is the noonday sun still only for mad dogs and Englishmen?
