Brazil with Michael Palin

The Road to Rio

Episode 3 | 54m 58s

Palin visits the source of Brazil’s great mineral wealth — the state of Minas Gerais and its giant mines and meets some ordinary Brazilians dedicated to preserving the natural beauty of the state. Then he’s off to Rio de Janeiro, host of the next Olympics and World Cup; a party town, blighted by drugs and gang violence. Palin learns how the authorities hope to bring the favelas back into the city.
