'It's the lure of easy money. It's got a very strong appeal' Ex-Eagles singer Glen Frey co-stars as Jim Cole , a burned-out bush pilot who agrees to fly Tubbs and Crockett on a dangerous assignment to Columbia: their mission to track down the powers behind a series of vicious killings involving whole families of dope smugglers. Together they face hostile police, bandits and pistoleros all gunning for them - constantly aware that the fun and games will really begin if they ever re-enter Miami.

A portrait of Italy today seen through the lives of ten different Italians. 3: The Art Restorer
Leonetto Tintori has dedicated 50 years of his life to restoring Italy's early
Renaissance masterpieces. Frescoes by Giotto and paintings from the palaces of Florence and Sienna and from small wayside chapels owe their survival to him.
He finds it agonising to see a deteriorating painting - 'It's like watching a corpse rotting away'. Like a visiting doctor he tends damaged works of art throughout Tuscany.
Leonetto is also an artist and sculptor and his favourite model is his wife and companion Elena. Their relationship is based on humour, warmth and the occasional huge row.
Their love of art brought them together and it sustains them now.
