"Abroad is not so abroad as it used to be," said
Jan Morris in the 1960s. Yet 30 years on, travel writing is more popular than ever, both with readers and writers. Now that television and the package tour have reached the parts only the seriously intrepid had reached before, are the days of the serious traveller numbered? Annette Kobak discusses this and other questions with Bill Bryson , P J Kavanagh ,
Ella Maillart and Caryl Phillips in a programme recorded in front of an audience at the Cheltenham Festival.
