Spain: Paradise lost

beech writes in General

Did anyone else watch Spain: Paradise Lost last week? It was so sad. I really felt for the people involved - well most of them anyway...

What was it about? I missed it. Where was it based, all over the country?

It was based on the Costas. There was a couple who bought a bar in Benidorm, some others that were going to have their houses bulldozed, an estate that was half finished and a bit about the rich people down in Marbella.

I felt quite sad for the people. Especially the ones that didn't appear to have made rash decisions. Rather, they were a victim of circumstance and dodgy Spanish legislation.

The half finished Urbanisation in La Zenia was the one that struck a cord with me as I used to live near there. When you drive through it the smell is appalling even when it's not raining. When the rain comes the raw sewage comes out of the drains into the street and runs away down onto the beech (which is actually a fair distance away).

Poor people.

Was the half finished one the estate with the raw sewage running down the street and onto the beach when it rained?

I felt sooooo sorry for them too.

To get that and any other UK progs, you can sign up to www.uknova.com

It may be a bit oversubscribed as it was when I signed up (eventually) but keep perservering with the login. All you need is a torrent client i.e www.bittorrent.com and away you go. Happy programme watching!
