- Who Pays for Paradise
- Program Number
- Series Description
Documentary series with international stories. Predecessor to FRONTLINE, executive producer David Fanning. Five seasons from 1978-1981. "WORLD has presented a series of international documentaries. One of our concerns has been to show the world as others see it, and we are committed to the idea that we should include those who normally don't have a chance to have their voices heard." -- quote from opening to Blacks Britannica (1978) Series release date: 1978
- Program Description
A story about tourism, a growing industry in third world countries, and about its effects on those countries. It's about beaches and sun, and about Swedes, the Swiss, the French and the Germans who come to West Africa and the British and North Americans who come to the Caribbean. Tourists come by the hundreds of thousands seeking the exotic, but rarely do they see how the people actually live.
