Product Description:

Jonathan Dimbleby travels to South America to report on the conditions there. In episode one of the three-part series he travels first to Chile to find out how the people feel about their government, which is no longer ruled by the brutal dictator Pinochet. He finds a lingering resentment, yet conditions are improved. He travels across the Atacama Desert to meet up with the poet Jorge Monteleagre in an abandoned town called Chacabuco that was a concentration camp under Pinochet’s rule.

Then he goes to Bolivia and meets with children workers who have formed a labor union. He travels to the mountains and journeys deep into the rain forest where he finds a music school where they perform classical music brought by priests from Europe hundreds of year ago.

In part two of the series, he travels to Columbia visiting the capital of Bogota. Then he goes to Medellín notorious for drug trafficking and sees firsthand the deaths caused by the drug problem that fill a cemetery. Then his journey continues to Venezuela and the crime-ridden streets of Caracas the capital. He attends an anti-US rally put on by forces that support the socialist government of President Hugo Chavez. Then he enjoys a concert performed by children who are part of the Venezuelan youth musical program.

For part three, Jonathan Dimbleby goes to Brazil, traveling over 6,000 miles across the huge country. He finds that Brazil struggles to balance the forces of economic expansion with protection of the environment. He ends his trip in Rio by taking a tour of the favellas ruled by criminal gangs.

Even though there are still many problems in South America, he concludes that conditions have improved since the last time he visited the continent.
