Ohrid, 29th August 2007 - Kaliopi, together with Michael Palin, the renowned comedian staring in the famous Monty Python serial, took part to the shooting of the BBC documentary entitled Michael Palin’s New Europe, directed by the eminent director Jean-Paul Davidson.

This documentary on Macedonia is a part of the documentary series about Eastern European countries among which Albania, Bulgaria, and Turkey.

Kaliopi and Michael Palin were walking and chatting along the streets of Ohrid, and Kaliopi, as a host presenter, presented to her guest the beauties of this city.

I just can’t hold back the excitement brought by my collaboration with BBC and with Michael, by their professionalism, their humanity, and their knowledge about Macedonia. We were shooting in several locations in Ohrid, and at the end I sang Don’t Cry for them accompanying myself on piano, Kaliopi said.
