Fantasy author Terry Pratchett has delighted millions with his brilliant Discworld series in which a flat earth is carried through space on the backs of four giant elephants riding an even bigger turtle. In this presentation by Jim Linville, the geography and sometimes biting social commentary of Pratchett’s Discworld is used as a traveller’s guide to some aspects of the world as imagined by those who think the earth really is flat.
