Globe Shopper is a whirlwind tour of some of the best shopping sites on the planet.

We explore ethnic and tribal shopping in places like Papua New Guinea and the South Pacific; jewellery throughout Asia and Africa; visit some of the great mega-markets of the Middle East and Africa; find amazing memorabilia shopping in China and Russia; look for things for the home in Europe and Mongolia; take a look at some of the stranger markets on the edge to be found in Africa and South America; and finish with finding some of the best clothing stores in the world; from Palm Springs to Udaipur.

So join presenters Jonathan Atherton, Neil Gibson, Megan McCormick , Estelle Bingham, Justine Shapiro, and Ian Wright, as they shop till they drop.
