I don’t watch anywhere near as much television here in Mexico as I did in the UK, but there are some programmes which just shouldn’t be missed. These would include, for me, anything by Simon Reeve, whose travels around the world are…well….unmissable. His Meet The Stans series was excellent. But his two later series, Equator and Tropic of Capricorn were even better.
I had rather hoped that he’d complete the trilogy and do Tropic of Cancer, which would have taken him through Mexico. But alas, it wasn’t to be. Not yet anyway. His next series is called Explore and starts on Sunday Jan 25th, BBC2 at 9pm, with the first episode being all about Argentina. If you don’t happen to live in the UK, I strongly suspect a search of Mininova will bring the first of four episodes to your PC by the following day. Equator is, just about, still available. Capricorn bits and pieces are up on YouTube. I highly recommend all these shows.
