As the World Cup competition heats up, join Michael Palin on an epic four-part tour of this vast and varied nation.
Palin begins his odyssey in the northeast, where modern Brazil was born (Out of Africa), then ventures into the heart of the Amazon (Into Amazonia). Next he visits mines in Minas Gerais and the gorgeous beaches of rio, where he learns about efforts to bridge economic inequality (The Road to Rio). Finally, he explores the rich cultural diversity of the south and the wonder of Iguazu Falls (The Deep South).
