Dont just visitExplore!Programme One - EXPLORE: PATAGONIA TO THE PAMPASBBC Travel Documentary, recorded 12.02.2011 Simon Reeve leads a team of presenters on a journey through the spectacular landscapes of Argentina, from the vast ice fields of Patagonia to the wide-open plains of the pampas. In the south, a group of indigenous people are locked in a historic dispute with the area's biggest landowners, Italian clothing giants Benetton; in Buenos Aires, the children of the disappeared are seeking to find out the truth of what happened to their parents at the hands of Argentina's generals; and in the pampas we meet one of the last true gauchos, whose way of life is being destroyed by an argricultural revolution. On the way, we take in one of the greatest matches in world football, visit a penguin colony on the edge, and meet a bishop with a rather unorthodox interest in Evita.Programme Two - EXPLORE: THE RIFT VALLEYBBC Travel Documentary, recorded 19.02.2011 Simon Reeve leads a team of journalists on a spectacular journey down east Africa's Rift Valley. From the tiny country of Djibouti, which is the centre of America's military presence in Africa, to the wide open plains of Kenya, the team encounter awe-inspiring landscapes, rich culture and amazing wildlife. In Ethiopia, even in the green and fertile Rift, people are still going hungry, and in northern Kenya global climate change is driving tribes to war over water and resources. In the foothills of Mount Kilimanjaro, Masai warriors are running a project to protect the country's lions. Programme Three - EXPLORE: ISTANBUL AND ANATOLIABBC Travel Documentary, recorded 27.02.2011 Simon Reeve leads a team of journalists in a journey of discovery across Turkey. From the stunning mosques of Istanbul to the 'fairy chimneys' of Cappadocia and the forests of the Black Sea coast, Turkey is country of rich history and amazing landscapes. It is also a divided country where the pro-islamic government seems locked in conflict with the traditionally secular establishment, including the army, and where an armed conflict rumbles on with elements of the Kurdish minority in the South East.Programme Four - EXPLORE: MANILA TO MINDANAOBBC Travel Documentary, recorded 05.03.2011 Simon Reeve leads a team of journalists on a journey of discovery in the Philippines, from the staggering scenery of the mountainous rice terraces in the north, to the war-torn Muslim regions of the south. In the capital, Manila, population pressure has led to some surprising consequences. The city's largest cemetery has become home to a thriving community, who look after the tombs of the rich but also have their own schools and shops. The country is still in some political turmoil and a long-running communist insurgence has led to allegations of illegal killings by the army. Simon meets a general known as 'The Butcher'. Simon also has a surreal encounter from the past - an interview with Imelda Marcos, who is marketing a new line in beauty products.
