The Vice Guide To Travel
Premiere date: Monday, 19 May 2008 at 22h30

The Vice Guide to Travel is an expose series of seven short documentaries, ranging from five to 12 minutes in which founders, editors and writers of Vice magazine* travel to uncover the stories commercial networks like CNN and Fox News pretend don’t exist.

In Bulgaria, co-founder Shane Smith locates a man who bought a “dirty bomb” on the black market and buried it in his mom’s garden. His purchase could eradiate New York City, killing hundreds of thousands and rendering the city unliveable.

In Palestine, Smith listens as PLO boyscout leaders encourage their charges to sing songs about blowing up the “Israeli dogs”. In Pakistan, Vice’s other co-founder Suroosh Alvi travels to the world’s largest illegal arms market, where peasants make guns by the thousands with their bare hands.

To get their stories the crew need to do radical things eg.  Alvi’s mom had to speak with people from her native country to recruit a militia to protect her son. In Chernobyl, Smith and correspondent Pella Kagerman travel to reactor #4, the site of the fateful meltdown, where levels of radiation are 40 times higher than normal.

*Vice magazine is a free glossy magazine that covers on independent arts and youth culture. Founded in Montreal, the magazine's currently based in New York and gets distrubuted in the US, Australia, Austria, Britain, Japan, Scandinavia, Canada, France, Germany, New Zealand, Italy, the Netherlands, and Belgium.
