The Secret Mediterranean With Trevor McDonald

The legendary broadcaster Sir Trevor McDonald embarks on a sumptuous and epic journey across the Mediterranean - discovering the unexpected and the forgotten, the extraordinary and the bizarre.

Episode 3

This week, Trevor visits one of the world’s most dangerous volcanoes in Naples, the infamous Vesuvius, which most experts predict is overdue another major eruption. 

He also meets the city’s vice Chief Prosecutor responsible for confronting and convicting members of the Mafia and on the stunning Amalfi coast, he visits the glorious Palazzo Belmonte. An idyllic Palace once a favourite of 17th century European Kings and Queens – where he meets that last remaining Prince of one of Italy’s grandest families.

In Spain, Trevor visits the Costa Brava for a hair raising ride in Spain’s first super car, and in his last destination this episode, he travels to Morocco, stepping back in time with ancient Berber tribes who rely on young British vets to keep their working animals, so vital to their existence, alive.
