"Brazil with Michael Palin"

Thursday & Friday, August 4 & 5 at 10pm

Join Michael Palin in Brazil, where he travels from the lost world of Amazonia to the buzzing metropolis of Rio de Janeiro, meeting the people and visiting the places that shape this South American nation.

Michael’s Brazilian odyssey begins in the North East, where modern Brazil was born. Next, Michael travels on several rivers through the very heart of Amazonia. On the road to Rio, Michael visits the source of Brazil's great mineral wealth - the state of Minas Gerais and its giant mines. On his final leg of his journey, Michael starts in the picture perfect town of Parati where he meets up with Prince João de Bragança, heir to the defunct throne of Brazil.
