Great panoramic shots of the island of Madeira - sea, villages, banana trees. Men are seen harvesting bananas - cutting and carrying large, heavy bunches. Cut to tourist attractions of Madeira's capital Funchal. Tourists are transported in a vehicle similar to rickshaw. Several shots of Funchal. Funny vehicles - bullock carts are seen on streets.
Various shots of tourists enjoying their holidays, Girls are carried in swings, people are seen swimming and sunbathing in and around hotel pool - lucky people.
Scenic shot of Madeira's great vineyards. Madeira is famous for its wine - voiceover says. Succession of shots of wine making: harvesting, pressing, distilling, making barrels, bottling, packing, tasting and consuming wine at folk dancing fiesta - nice mixture of ancient and modern. Succession of shots of people in traditional dress dancing while tourists sip great Madeira wine while watching them.
What I like the most about this travelogue is beautiful folk music - particularly the song accompanying wine making.
