Radio veteran Kim Hill finds herself among the politics, cigar smoke and dancing in Cuba, in this episode of the long-running travel show. During a 15-day visit, a series of seemingly random encounters take her off the beaten track to Hoodoo ceremonies, the Bay of Pigs and the sad spectacle of Guantanamo Bay. Hill conveys a textured perspective on life in Castro's Republic, and calls it "a strange mixture of Soviet style communism and Latin American hedonism".
An internship on Breakfast while at Christchurch Broadcasting School led to Jack Tame’s debut on One News as a 19 year-old reporter. From 2012, he spent five years as TVNZ's New York correspondent, working on stories from the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting to prisoners at Guantanamo Bay. Tame has covered the Rugby World Cup for CNN, and the Rio Olympics for TVNZ. For two and a half years he co-hosted Breakfast with Hilary Barry. In April 2019 Tame took over from Corin Dann as host of current affairs and political show Q+A. He also hosts the Saturday morning slot on Newstalk ZB.
