Continuing the new seven-part series for independent travellers.
This week, Magenta DeVine and Simon O'Brien go to the Caribbean islands of the Bahamas. In Nassau, they visit the casinos catering to the 2.5 million tourists who arrive every year by cruise liner. While Simon finds out why it is illegal for Bahamians to gamble, Magenta discovers "the most powerful aphrodisiac in the world" and meets men who have five girlfriends at once.
This liberal attitude to sex has its limits, they discover - young gay people mostly leave for the US, whose culture dominates the islands. And on idyllic Harbour Island they check out naked picnics and visit Spanish Wells, a bizarre enclave of white Bahamians.

Pablo Escobar - How Cocaine Conquered a Country
The last programme in the series focuses on Pablo Escobar, the Colombian cocaine king who was shot dead in December 1993. The most notorious gangster since Al Capone , Escobar is still a hero to many in his home town of Medellfn. Born into poverty, he soon turned from petty crime to drug smuggling and, by using the terror techniques of murder and torture, amassed a fortune estimated at$4 billion. Award-winning director Bill Cran and a film crew travelled to Bogota and Medellin, two of the most dangerous cities in the world, to interview members of Escobar's family, victims of his threats and kidnappings, agents of the US Drug Enforcement
Agency and Escobar's fellow criminals. The result is a portrait of the man behind the gangster image of "el patron", the boss.
