Argentinian DNA: A Different Argentina

Rural Argentina, land of cowboy rodeos, tap-dancing and big barbecues

Head for rural Argentina with RT correspondent Francisco Guaita. Watch local cowboys, the gallant gauchos, as they try to stay in the saddle for the glory of winning rodeo competitions. Meet the musicians and dancers still performing a centuries-old tap-dance. And join preparations for the ultimate barbecue that feeds over a thousand.

Rural Argentina may be economically disadvantaged, but the children love their beautiful landscape and traditional community life.
