Season 1

Episode 4: Love In The Time of Corona

How Covid-19 has brought people together, instead of keeping them apart. 

With the whole world on lockdown and the entire team working hard to launch a new show – this show – we all began to look for stories which made us happy, during a scary time.

We wanted, or maybe needed, stories that helped us feel connected, even while we were isolated under quarantine. 

What resulted was an episode filled with stories from around the world about the one thing that connects us all – love. This may not be what you’re expecting from a travel show, but every single story, no matter where it comes from, feels universal.  

In this special episode of Passport we explore what makes us all more similar than we are different. 

THIS WEEK WE TRAVEL TO…

  • Barcelona, Spain
  • Hull, UK
  • Brighton, UK
  • Richmond, London, UK
  • Seattle, USA
  • Catskills, NY, USA
  • Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA
