Abstract:

Navigating the world began in the 16th century, and in this program we retrace the travels of some early explorers on a contemporary voyage around Cape Horn. Starting from Rio de Janeiro, we see aerial footage of the Cristo Redentor, the statue of Christ, atop Corcovado Mountain; also we find Rio to be a city with a unique blend of old and new. Next we stop in Uruguay's charming capital, Montevideo; it is a modern city filled with historical monument such as the statue of General Jose Artigas, a national hero who helped this country gain independence from Spain in 1830. Then in the South Atlantic to the remote Falkland Islands, which are still administered by the British; to Cape Horn, South America's most southern tip, which is identified by the well-known Albatross monument. Next to Ushuaia, Argentina, the "gateway to Antarctica," which was a former penal colony and today is a tourist attraction for many to view the Beagle Channel; then to Chile's Punta Arenas ("Sandy Point"), the southernmost city on Earth, which is located alongside the Straits of Magellan; also Puerto Montt, on the Gulf of Ancud, is a good base for trips through the Inside Passage to the fjords or the Lake District; then Santiago, the enchanting capital of Chile.
