// you've never painted a thing in your life I don'think you could live here for long without having a dab
Produced by BRIAN PATTEN from the South and West
The road to Veracruz from the central table land of Mexico drops 7,000 ft. in its 250 miles. It takes us through romantic Indian villages and lazy colonial towns, past Pico de Orizaba, one of the highest mountains on the American continent, through the lush tropical region of Fortin, where Johnny takes an unforgettable swim, to the salty bustle of Veracruz and the island fortress and prison of San Juan de Ulua.

THE TOMB ROBBERS
Between the eighth and fourth centuries B.C. the rich Etruscans of Vulci, a town seventy miles north of Rome, were buried with their r possessions - including precious metals and jewellery-in thousands of rock-cut tombs
These graves attracted the attention of tomb robbers from the period of the Roman Empire, and raiding of tombs in the Vulci area has gone on sporadically ever since. In the last few years it has turned almost into a large-scale business-and these underground riches are the subject of a complicated struggle between robbers, policemen, international middle-men, and archaeologists.
This film follows the activities of two young Italian labourers who defy strict police vigilance and the risk of jail sentences by living off the proceeds from what they dig out of tombs.
