Christopher Columbus called it the "rich coast" – a strip of land that straddles the Caribbean Sea and Pacific Ocean. But Costa Rica's rich natural beauty is threatened by the over-exploitation of its resources and by mono-culture farming. Huge banana- and pineapple plantations have reduced the country's natural bio-diversity – but activists are now trying to preserve what's left of it. Costa Rica is a natural paradise that combines distinctive geography and a wide variety of plant- and animal species. About a quarter of the country's land has been designated as natural parks or other protected areas. Eco-tourism is booming.

Reporter Shaunagh Connaire and director Hugo Ward visit Texas to meet some of America's youngest cowboys: the children participating in what has been described as the most dangerous organised sport on the planet. Bull-riding is the fastest-growing sport in the US and a multi-million-dollar business. The Unreported World team capture jaw-dropping scenes as 10-year-old children attempt to stay on half-tonne bulls selectively bred to be bigger and more aggressive than ever before. Studies reveal that bull-riding is 10 times more dangerous than American football, but it has never been so popular, with children as young as seven riding bulls ten times their size. Unreported World is in Fort Worth, Texas - the heart of Cowboy country and the spiritual home of bull-riding - in an action-packed and eye-opening episode of the series.

Genre: Documentary | Biography

Dolley Madison lived through the two wars that established the U.S., was friends with the first 12 Presidents, and watched America evolve from a struggling young republic to the first modern democracy in the world. She was nicknamed "Queen Dolley," and when she died in 1849 at the age of 81 - one of the last remaining members of the founding generation - Washington City honored her with the largest state funeral the capital had ever seen for a woman. Born in relative obscurity before the American Revolution, Dolley Madison became one of the most influential American women of the early nineteenth century. As the wife of the fourth president, James Madison, Dolley Madison played an important part in the political and social experiment that was the early American Republic. Long before women held any overt political power, Dolley used her unelected position to legitimize the nation's new capital, to create a political and social style for the new country and to give Americans a sense of their own national identity.
