About Episode

  1. The most opulent, luxurious homes in Afghanistan are the garish palaces of the world's largest opium dealers - and we go on a real estate tour to try and purchase one of these Poppy Palaces. Then Ryan Duffy visits the weird world of Peruvian folk music - Huayno - where the real-life stories of love, murder and betrayal involving its biggest stars are tabloid, soap-operas come to life. Then Thomas Morton goes to Sri Lanka to see ex-Tamil Child Soldiers being rehabilitated into good Sri Lankan citizens -- only to learn that the country is still smarting from its bloody civil war. And finally, we go to Norway, where sometimes there isn't much more to do than race reindeer and make moonshine.
