Presented by the former Python with typical easy-going charm, BAFTA-nominated Brazil with Michael Palin is a thoroughly engaging, gently informative four-part travelogue, filled with the sights and sounds of a wonderfully diverse country.
"Brazil is the fifth largest country in the world - both in terms of population and geography. Over 192 million people call this land their home. Taking up over half of South America, Brazil is a mix of races, religions, sophistication, wildness, wealth, poverty and unexplored wilderness. The country is considered one of the rising global powers with Vast natural resources, a burgeoning industrial base and a strong currency. In this programme Michael Palin visits Brazil for the very first time, travelling from the lost world of Amazonia to the buzzing metropolis of Rio de Janeiro, to meet the people and visit the places that shape this nation." 2entertain
