Mark Carwardine: My Life In Travel

The Independent featured this fairly fluffy interview with Mark Carwardine last week. I'd guess the interview is actually a few months old because the trip to Nairobi to film a Last Chance To See special has already happened I believe.
Greatest travel luxury?

Music can transform an experience. I remember flying over Fiordland National Park in New Zealand with Stephen Fry last year, while filming Last Chance To See. We were in a little helicopter and the pilot played Pink Floyd's Dark Side Of The Moon loudly into our headsets. Suddenly, we were in an imaginary spacecraft, wheeling and turning over a fantasy, make-believe world.
