Trailer opening song by Claude Duke



 Structure per 44 minute episode:





We are proud of the interest and support from Cuba.


Of particular value are all the permits and visas fully approved


by the Cuban Government for our Canadian / Cuban Crew.


Without their consent, this timely series couldn't be possible.


These approvals are a huge vote of confidence and not easily


awarded, bringing us to market with a critical edge


if we can move with an appropriate sense of urgency.
