節目介紹 / Introduction
2015年7月20日,美國正式與古巴恢復外交關係,結束長達54年的斷交,古巴的現況與前景再次成爲國際焦點。攝製隊專程走訪古巴首都哈瓦那,探索這個加勒比海島國今時今日最原始的面貌。



節目跟隨主持人的腳步走進哈瓦那舊城區,感受殖民時期歐式建築物所散發出的獨特歷史氣息。離開喧鬧的市區,巷內理髮店展現著深藏不露的手藝,鄉間煙草農場和私營餐館則反映了不同行業在古巴經濟模式下的發展。



古巴政府在2015年7月開放全國35公共無線上網點,其費用之高昂卻叫國民難以負擔。互聯網對古巴人有著與外界交流的重要意義,主持人也入鄉隨俗體驗在古巴上網。此外,大街小巷隨處可見的美國老爺車叫人稱奇,也使古巴這個「老爺車移動博物館」聞名於世。



與美國復交後的古巴未來發展或許未知,但足以令過去飽受外交孤立的古巴人重燃希望。除了記錄古巴當今社會耐人尋味的景象,節目同時也訪問了當地人對美古復交後所期望看到的改變。




On July 20, 2015, the United States announced to re-establish diplomatic relations with Cuba after severing ties for 54 years. Cuba’s current status and prospects are once again being discussed on the stage of global affairs. The programme initiates a journey to the capital of Cuba, Havana to uncover the most down-to-earth aspects of Cuba today.



Follow as our host stroll along the Old Havana and be surrounded by historical colonial buildings with European influences. Walking away from the downtown areas, an obscure barber shop is found to house a skilful hairdresser before our host visits the tobacco farm and private restaurant that reflect the development of businesses under Cuba’s economy.



In July 2015, the Cuban government launched 35 public Wi-Fi hotspots island-wide with an hourly fee that is hardly affordable for the local citizens. Internet is used by the Cubans as an important means to connect with the outside world, and our host takes the opportunity to experience getting online in Cuba. What's more, our host explores the overwhelming presence of vintage American cars in Cuba that earned it the name of “Rolling Car Museum”.



It may still be uncertain where the future lies for Cuba, but United States’ restoration of diplomatic ties has brought a new hope to the Cubans who suffered diplomatic isolation in the past. Besides capturing some most interesting scenes in Cuba today, the programme also invites local citizens to talk about the changes they wish to see after the re-establishment.
