In the Americas with David Yetman

Havana: Inside The City

In 2016, the U.S. government made it easier to visit Cuba. Now, a Cuban cultural expert shows us Havana once off limits to us. Hidden among its fine old buildings David finds a village created by artists, an African-Cuban cultural center, a canalside restaurant, a school for women boxers, a women's bicycling cooperative, and a street dedicated to live African-Cuban music.

series description

IN THE AMERICAS WITH DAVID YETMAN showcases the landscapes, peoples and history of North and South America — from the frozen landscape of Yellowstone National Park in winter to the active volcanoes of Southern Chile. This season, host David Yetman (The Desert Speaks) visits Mayan excavation sites in Guatemala, an isolated mountain community in northern Oaxaca, colorful religious festivals on the Yucatلn peninsula, and the booming and bustling port of Panama City. Along the way, he meets natives and immigrants, islanders and mainlanders, pastoralists and city-dwellers, including the descendants of Japanese, German and Italian immigrants that settled in South America.
