The Treasures of Serra Pelada
Every day except Sunday, in a clearing in the Amazon jungle, 60,000 men, coated in liquid mud, toil from dawn to dusk in a bizarre landscape of their own making. The few visitors to this remote place have likened the spectacle to the building of the pyramids in ancient Egypt. Serra Pelada is one of the strangest communities in the world: doctors, lawyers, teachers and engineers work alongside simple, illiterate peasants from all over Brazil. They are all searching for gold. Brazil, in recent years, has witnessed a gold rush of 19th-century proportions. Early in 1980, at Serra Pelada in the Amazon delta, was found one of the richest concentrations of alluvial gold known to history. In 12 months, ten tons of gold had been extracted from a single great hole. The programme shows what men will undertake in the timeless search for gold.
