Brazil With Michael Palin
The Deep South
On the final leg of his journey, Palin starts in the picture-perfect town of Parati, where he meets with Prince Joao de Braganca, heir to the defunct throne of Brazil. In Embraer and Sao Paolo, Palin meets some of Brazil's successful politicians, heads of business and TV soap stars, who all have mixed opinions on Brazil's future. After experiencing the beauty and serenity of the vast wetlands of the Pantanal, Palin ends his journey at the magnificent Iguazu falls, where he concludes that Brazil has much to offer the world as it takes its place as a potential new superpower.
