Explore – Philippines – Manila to Mindanao 1 of 4 – BBC Travel Documentary, recorded 05.03.2011 Simon Reeve leads a team of journalists on a journey of discovery in the Philippines, from the staggering scenery of the mountainous rice terraces in the north, to the war-torn Muslim regions of the south.
In the capital, Manila, population pressure has led to some surprising consequences. The city’s largest cemetery has become home to a thriving community, who look after the tombs of the rich but also have their own schools and shops. The country is still in some political turmoil and a long-running communist insurgence has led to allegations of illegal killings by the army. Simon meets a general known as ‘The Butcher’.
