Summary
On The Road to Rio, Michael visits the source of Brazil's great mineral wealth - the state of Minas Gerais and its giant mines. Here, he meets some ordinary Brazilians dedicated to preserving the natural beauty of the state. On to Rio De Janeiro, host to the next Olympics and World Cup. Rio has always been a party town, but it's also blighted by drugs and gang violence. Michael learns how the authorities are hoping to bring the favelas back into the city. He also books a room in one of the city's famous 'love hotels' and attends the Gay Pride parade.
