Season 1, Episode 3 Michael Palin's Hemingway Adventure

First Aired: May 10, 2000

Part 3 (of four). A visit to Key West, Fla., where Papa lived in the '30s; Uganda, where he was involved in two plane crashes---in 48 hours; and Venice, where he read his obituary.

And in Venice (where Hemingway repaired after the crashes---the second of which was serious enough to warrant the news of his demise), Palin goes duck hunting.
