Clive Myrie is returning with a second series of his travel odyssey but he will this time be sharing his experience in the heart of the Caribbean islands.

In the series Clive Myrie’s Caribbean Adventure, Clive will explore his personal connection to this part of the world.

Viewers will explore four islands with Clive as he unearths family roots and forges personal connections with each unique location.

From the vibrant streets of Cuba to the nightlife of Jamaica, the lush landscapes of the Dominican Republic and the beach paradise of Barbados, Clive will see it all.

He will indulge his love of vintage cars in Cuba, experience how Jamaican music has changed the world, plunge into Carnival in Dominican Republic and experience the future of rum in Barbados.

Clive Myrie to explore personal connections in second travel series

In the early 1960s, both of Clive’s parents came to the UK from Jamaica but he’s only visited on a handful of occasions.

He’ll travel in his mum and dad’s footsteps, track down family members he’s never met and spend time with his sister Judith who recently moved back to Jamaica from the UK.

Clive will also explore his connection to Cuba - he knows one of his granddads spent time there but beyond that is a bit of a family mystery.

He will also learn about the indigenous Taino people who were some of the first inhabitants of much of the Caribbean.

In the Dominican Republic, where the Afro-Caribbean story begins, Clive will get a bird's eye view of the oldest city in the Americas and dive into Dominican Santeria – a heady blend of African and European religious beliefs.

He will also get hands-on in a banana farm.

Finally, in Barbados, Clive will delve into the paradox of this popular tourist destination – the vivid signs of British culture all around and Barbados’s recent drift away from British influence and the Commonwealth.

He’ll join a cliff-top retreat with second-generation Brits who’ve reversed their parents’ journey and returned to live in the Caribbean.

 Viewers will also see Clive swim with racehorses.
