OT for Ibn Batuta fans, good TV series

Some Oxford professor made a TV documentary series, and wrote a book, about re-creating Ibn Batatu's long trip from Morocco to India & China and Saudi Arabia & lots more places.  10 wives and many concubines.  Drug use. Eating full variety of sheep organs.  Oud music and belly dancing.

It's called "travels with a tangerine", and Sacramento's channel 6 is airing it Wed nights at 10.  I liked the first one, last week.  You Bay Area Ibn Batuta fans can lobby your station or your library or  video outlet.
