Chile and Bolivia: A South American Journey, with Jonathan Dimbleby (Enhanced DVD)
Your host, Jonathan Dimbleby will take you through the nation of Chile to learn about its culture and way of life. When General Pinochet stopped ruling the country, it changed to a place of freedom after years of torture and ridicule. Jonathan meets with editors of a local magazine, takes a ride with the first female rodeo rider in the country, visits with poet Jorge Montealegre in a ghost town across the Atacama Desert and finally comes to the ocean to watch fishermen preparing seaweed to be exported to China. After Chile, Dimbleby will move on to Boliva. He will meet with child laborers to learn of their quest in forming their own trade union. He will visit with coca farmers to learn about their trade and he will watch two sisters compete in wresting matches in an attempt to assert their identity to the nation. This quirky and upbeat production will leave you with a knowledge of the way of life of the inhabitants of these two South American areas.
