Island in the Sun

[Man] The island of Santa Marta
is not very much different...

from any of the other
smaller islands in the Caribbean.

Towering mountains,
white gold beaches...

coconut palms
and hot tropical sun.

It has a population
of about 100,000...

9/10ths of it colored
or of mixed blood.

Its main industry is
raising sugar, copra, cocoa...

and exporting them.
Originally a French Island...
its laborers were brought in slave ships
from the Gold Coast of Africa...

four and a half centuries ago.
And now it is
a British Crown Colony.

Well, that about sums up
all the facts you'll find...

in the tourist guides,
Mr. Bradshaw.

Of course, as a journalist, you'll want
to see as much of our island as possible.
