The Secret Caribbean: Sir Trevor McDonald interview

Trevor travels 2000 miles across the islands taking in the pristine private resorts, the no-go areas, the stunning beauty and the violent natural disasters.

He meets the wealthy landowners and celebrities enjoying life in the sun, samples Caribbean communism in Cuba, meets the businessman running a coffee plantation, a chocolate factory owner and the girls with a passion for music trying to turn the lives of young people around.

He sees one of the great wonders of nature when he witnesses a giant turtle laying eggs and he sees the effects a huge volcanic eruption can have on a small island.

Trevor says: “My journey across the Caribbean is an incredible one. The islands have so many contrasts to offer, so much wealth and luxury sitting so close to poverty and crime and powerful natural disasters. I know I’ve only scratched the surface, but I’m sure of one thing, that the Caribbean really is like nowhere else on earth.”
