Brazil With Michael Palin

The Road To Rio

Season 1, Episode 3 of 4

On the road to Rio, Palin visits the source of Brazil's great mineral wealth - the state of Minas Gerais and its giant mines. Here, he 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. Rio has always been a party town, but it's also blighted by drugs and gang violence. Palin learns how the authorities are hoping to bring the favelas back into the city. He also learns how to celebrate a goal like a Brazilian radio commentator and books a room in one of the city's famous "love hotels"!
