Searching For Che

Ernesto Che Guevara – possibly the single most iconic figure of the 20th century. Fifty years ago, Che Guevara emerged from the Cuban Revolution as the quintessential guerrilla fighter and eight years later, that is how he died. Irish politician Joe Higgins sets out to discover what Che Guevara means to the people of Latin America today. The series was filmed in Argentina, Chile, Perú, Bolivia and Cuba and was broadcast on TG4 (Ireland) in 2008.
