"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.
Sagrario wants to dazzle the court with a show in honour of the King. Her idea is to organise a real Roman circus complete with gladiator fights.

Sátur hears word that his father has died and that a chest has been sent containing his belongings.
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".
Not everything is sun and beach in the summer. Some visitors prefer to search for inland destinations that have a special charm: cooler temperatures, peace and tranquility, beautiful landscapes, rich cultural attractions and, why not, a fiesta or two. This week we visit the following places: Santillana del Mar in Cantabria; the Reservoir of Entrepeñas, which is known as the "Inland Benidorm"; and Las Merindades, located to the north of Burgos, with its picturesque villages. We shall look to have some fun at the Fiesta del Torico in Teruel and we shall enjoy the "Musicians in Nature" Festival in Gredos.

Manuel Benítez "El Cordobés" was one of the great Spanish bullfighters of the 20th century. He was born in Palma de Río in precisely the year the Spanish Civil War broke out, at the heart of a poor family. Rafael Sánchez, nicknamed "El Pipo", managed to turn this charismatic young man not only into a bullfighting sensation, but into a veritable social phenomenon. This program offers us a documented view of Manuel Benítez as a Spanish icon of the 1960's, a period of social transformation and changing social mores.
