Now see how it looks today ! Bolton Revisited. http://youtu.be/af7Uwyw61iY I can't believe it's 17 years since I filmed this! Look at the cars! Look at the clothes! Not a mobile phone to be seen! It's summer and not a single young woman's stomach on display! Take a stroll down memory lane back to 1992. John Major is Prime Minister. Bolton Wanderers have finished 13th in the Third Division but new manager Bruce Rioch is just about to arrive and goal scorers Andy Walker and John McGinlay help the team back up to the top. Leeds United just won the last football title before the Premiership started.Cigarette advertising is still allowed on street billboards. People seem to be in much more of a hurry - maybe it's cause they don't have the mobile phones! Enjoy.

In Hope's TV show we surprise one of Uganda's poorest families. Although they have nothing themselves they give Hope (pretending to be a beggar) food and water. We reward them with a week's supply of food. Then we go behind the scenes as she surprises another lady on Valentine's Day.

12Go is an excellent company. They are totally honest and help you at every stage of the booking process. You could fly there in an hour for not much more money but the modern sleeper train is a wonderful experience - great value - and you get to see more of the lovely Northern Thailand countryside along the way. See how hard the train staff work converting the whole carriage into sleeper berths !

Bait Al Falaj was Oman's first airport. At first nothing more than a dirt track, it was used from 1929 until 1973 when Seeb International Airport opened. In the 1960s Gulf Air started using the airport for DC3 aircraft. Takeoffs and landings were very dangerous due to the narrow landing strip and high mountains and hills around the airport area.

Visiting Burma is much easier than it was even just a few years ago. The days of needing to take perfect dollar notes and nothing else are gone. Hope this guide gives you some ideas about what to do, what to expect. It's a fascinating place - but take care crossing the roads.

There's plenty to see just in Negombo for a couple of days before you head off to places like Kandy. 5 religions in this small town - I thought if I lived here I could be a different religion each day and then atheist and agnostic at the weekend. Funny thing was afterwards, leaving for Thailand, on the flight I watched "Life of Pi". Historical: The Portuguese were the first to build an empire in Sri Lanka. Negombo Fort, small but important, was built in early 1600's to defend Colombo. In 1640 the Dutch came, destroyed the fort and rebuilt it. They made a store inside to keep cinnamon. The English occupied it in 1796 and turned it into a prison which has been there to this day.

The taste of the Philippines ! So easy to cook. You will need 500g of chicken thighs, wings or drumsticks, two small onions, some ginger and garlic, cooking oil, soy sauce, salt, vinegar, bay leaves and a chicken stock cube. Rinse the chicken in water, then rub with salt and vinegar. Then rinse again with water to remove the vinegar taste. Roughly chop up the ginger, garlic and onions and fry in oil for ten minutes until brown. Add the wet chicken (but don't add any more water), cover and cook on medium heat for 30 minutes. Then add some soy sauce, 5 bay leaves and magic sarap (or half a stock cube). Cover and cook for another half an hour. It's ready!
