Wild Cuba: A Caribbean Journey – BBC2

Cameraman and naturalist Colin Stafford-Johnson explores parts of Cuba few outsiders have seen in Wild Cuba: A Caribbean Journey on BBC2

Cameraman, naturalist and director Colin Stafford-Johnson reveals some of Cuba’s natural secrets in Wild Cuba: A Caribbean Journey on BBC2.

Cuba’s position as a Communist country on the USA’s doorstep led to long years of cultural isolation.

But one of the upsides of this was a landscape that’s avoided the ravages that so much of the planet has endured.

It is a landscape where many of its natural wonders have been preserved.
