The Vietnam Riviera

TV Just a tip for next week, BBC Four are showing some new Holidays in the Danger Zone documentaries, this time we have America Was Here in which Ben Anderson looks at countries which the United States invaded or interfered with during the Cold War. Part one covers Vietnam and Cambodia. Part two looks at Nicaragua, El Salvador, Honduras and Panama. Anyone who's seen the previous pieces in a pre-war Iraq and elsewhere will know how amazing these things are. The section on Iran consisted of some very tired interviews in an office somewhere because they were picked up for spying and thrown in a jail for the three weeks they were supposed to be film. Hardly the kind of thing you'd find in Going Places.
