"Brazil with Michael Palin" comes to CET and ThinkTV16
Brazil is the fifth largest country in the world – both in terms of population and geography. More than 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 – less scary than China, less authoritarian than Russia and less chaotic than India with vast natural resources, a burgeoning industrial base and a strong currency that make it the envy of all.
Join Michael Palin on CET and ThinkTV16 as he visits Brazil and travels 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.
