The summer has started. The second series of the BBC's Passport to the Sun got underway yesterday, with a crew shadowing the movements of the Bulletin team covering the Michael Douglas story. As a result of the success of the first series, the BBC are making 40 episodes this time, 10 more than the first. Over the coming months crews from the programme will be following many of the people who appeared in the first series, screened in January. It enjoyed plenty of success attracting an audience of almost two million people daily. The series must have also helped holiday bookings to the island because it showed plenty of scenic shots of beautiful parts of Majorca. It is still unclear who will present Passport to the Sun II. Lisa Tarbuck is under contract to the Big Breakfast, Channel Four's early morning show. Lion TV, who were commissioned by the BBC to make the Passport to the Sun series, have produced many of the soap-documentaries which appear on BBC Television at the moment. One of their flagship programmes is Castaways.
