As the beautiful game takes over, Brazilian culture takes over Encore!

Writer Paulo Coelho, director Walter Salles and musician Gilberto Gil are just some of the Brazilian names that have made it onto the world stage. In Encore! we look at the work of the country’s legendary photographer, Sebastião Salgado. He has had his life story told by the joint force of Wim Wenders and his own son Juliano, who joins Eve Jackson in the studio. We also find out about Brazil’s TV addiction and their distaste for the official World Cup anthem.
