"Cocina2" proposes a gastronomic tour of some fifteen locations throughout Spain in the company of the reputed chefs, Sergio and Javier Torres, winners of a Michelin star. The Torres Brothers will propose two different menus in each program, one that is more traditional and the other more cutting-edge, but made with the same ingredients. In each episode, the Torres twins visit a different town or city, always in search of the best fresh or elaborated produce in the area, highlighting the rich offerings of the traditional markets.
The mysterious cases of Inspector Laura
Tomás Priora, a magician whose career is waning, watches as his main rival Tomás Pastor, makes off with his contracts and threatens to reveal the secrets which lie behind all his tricks. That night when Priora is arrested for drink-driving, his rival is murdered in his home. All the evidence points to Tomás Priora as the murderer, but he was confined to a cell, watched over by several police officers. Laura is convinced that the magician has managed to pull off the biggest, most baffling trick of his life, a trick which has enabled him to deceive everyone and commit the crime.
Spaniards Around the World
"Españoles en el Mundo" (Spaniards Around the World) visits Deepest America, perhaps the most traditional and wildest corner of the country. We shall tour the State of Missouri, whose best-known monument, the Gateway Arch, symbolises the United States' expansion towards the West. In the State's two biggest cities, St. Louis and Kansas City, we shall be welcomed by six Spaniards who have adapted to the purest Mid- West style of life. The programme will feature cowboys, Route 66 bikers, steamboats along the Mississippi and echoes of jazz.
Daniel is approaching forty. Laura is fifteen, almost sixteen. From what they say about him he must be a poet or a comic-strip illustrator, or both. He has just overcome a long addiction and, once back home, is trying to reorganize his life based on a strategy which consists basically in doing exactly what a "normal" person does. Everything that happens to Daniel is, more or less, foreseeable because that's what it's all about: he should look after his personal grooming, take care of the small things, immerse himself in the real world and so on until he has completed the ten small achievements in his manual, a set of commandments devised by an insipid public heath system psychiatrist. And, in the midst of all this, an unexpected happening: Laura arrives in the city searching for her brother Andres, Daniel's neighbor. But the brother is not home and she decides to wait for him, while organizing around Daniel what could be his "perfect world".
"Comando al sol" proposes a series of holiday destinations that suit all pockets, based on the idea of water, thus helping us to combat the summer heat. We shall stroll along the Beach of Las Canteras in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, one of the best urban beaches in Europe. We shall also cool off with a dip in the River Alberche, which is known as the "Beach of Madrid". We shall delight in the beautiful landscapes offered by a number of tiny coves around the Island of Menorca and then attend the Goose Barnacle Fiesta in A Coruña.
Journey to the Centre of TV
"Viaje al centro de la tele" dives back in to the TVE archives in order to find those songs, programs and characters that "hit the top". All of them hit the big time, but each in their own musical style and era. These are the Number One's of history. We delve into the TVE archives in order to locate the hits featuring the most intelligent humor. Santiago Segura provides the voice-over.
"Basque Hotel", revolves around the migration and development of the Basques, starting with their first appearance at the ranches of North America and ending with their cultural contributions in the twenty-first century. This is a literary journey that encompasses five writers: Robert Laxalt, Joseba Zulaika, Bernardo Atxaga, Asun Garikano and Kirmen Uribe. It takes us through the vast expanses of the Old American West (Nevada, Idaho and California), ending up on the streets of New York. An amazing journey from the Basque Country to the United States, from the Basque Hotel to the Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao.
