A South American Journey, With Jonathan DimblebyStreaming Video - 2013
Nowhere is evidence of the economic boom in South America more apparent than in Brazil, but in this program Jonathan Dimbleby finds the road to riches is paved with dilemmas for both Brazil and the wider world. In the Amazon, architects and cattle ranchers are grappling with environmental tension. On the coast, descendants of runaway slaves are fighting to protect their land from the expansion of a satellite launch facility. And in Rio, Dimbleby joins the commander of a new police force as they seek to pacify the slums ruled by the law of the drug lords.
