Michael Palin journeys to a vast country of unimaginable contrasts - Brazil. An economic powerhouse, it is host to a staggering variety of peoples. He starts his journey in the north, in the remote mountains and forests on the border with Venezuela, and finishes in the south at the legendary Iguaçu Falls. He travels by river-boat, float-plane and foot to visit tribes deep in the jungle, samples life in the agricultural and mining heartland of Brazil, experiences the modernism of Brasília and the heady mix of Rio de Janeiro, and ventures into the favelas. He travels down the northeast coast with its African-inspired culture; to São Luís; Recife and Salvador, where Michael is swept up in Candomblé. He heads to São Paulo, where the super-rich commute by helicopter; tastes German beer served from a motorcycle sidecar, and tries his hand at being a cowboy before journey's end beneath one of the most spectacular waterfalls in the world.
