This program examines the political and cultural impact of the Latin American telenovela--broadcast six days a week to more than 120 countries. Interviews with sociologists, media moguls and others examine its influence on Latin American power politics, along with generous clips from the programs "By These Streets," which closely parallels Venezuelan news events and the popular Brazilian romantic melodrama "Body and Soul".
