From the lost world of Amazonia to the buzzing metropolis of Rio de Janeiro, Michael Palin meets the people and visits the places that shape this fascinating nation.
In his inimitable style, Michael Palin explores this vast country of incredible contrasts. He travels by river-boat, float-plane and on foot to visit tribes deep in the jungle; experiences the heady mix of Rio de Janeiro and the African-inspired culture of São Luís; Recife and Salvador. He encounters the super-rich who commute by helicopter; tastes German beer served from a motorcycle sidecar and tries his hand at being a cowboy.
As ever, Michael Palin proves the perfect travelling companion and his adventures are beautifully filmed, taking in remote tribes on the Venezuelan border, the modernist buildings of Brasilia to the spectacular Iguaçu Falls, where his journey ends.
