On a map shown in the opening credits, the capital of China is identified as "Beijing". This spelling is in the Pin-Yin system of representing Chinese with Roman letters, which was not adopted until 1979. The Wade-Giles Romanization spelling of "Peking" would still have been in use. Wade-Giles was developed in 1859. See more »
Very good adaptation, too bad the DVD is not worth it
Very enjoyable adaptation of the Jules Verne Novel.
Around the world in 80 days. Pierce Brosnan is fantastic in his role of the inventor and scientist Phileas Fogg. The cast is superb and the photography fantastic. Far better production that the new adaptation with Jacky Chan on it. Unfortunaly when finally after a very long wait the DVD came up, what a disappointment, the DVD simply sucks, no production notes, or special features or anything at all, besides, the quality of the image is at the very least 1/10. The poorest I've ever seen in a long time. I mean if you are going to produce something, put a little heart on it. I hope we can very soon enjoy this mini series in its complete extend, with a special edition DVD.
