Joanna Lumley’s Hidden Caribbean: Havana to Haiti

2 × 60"2019

Joanna Lumley travels across two of the most enigmatic countries in the Caribbean – Cuba and Haiti – to explore, uncover and share the hidden gems that these countries have to offer.

 The twists and turns of history have seen these 2 Caribbean neighbours be colonised, populated by slaves, blighted by natural disaster and suffering sanctions and international isolation.  Both countries are undoubtedly poor in monetary terms, but are abundantly rich in other ways, a riot for the senses with cities full of colourful streets bursting with the rhythm of life, which then give way to unspoiled coastlines, pristine beaches, majestic mountains and lush forests. There really is much more to both Haiti and Cuba than the headlines suggest - so much of it is thrillingly under-explored and therefore this new series is the perfect chance for Joanna to uncover and share the hidden gems these countries have to offer.
