As part of a documentary series that realizes the international broadcaster British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) of the Sullivan C. Richardson Panamerican Highway (1940-1941 expedition), the production team will film two consecutive days in the beautiful port of Mazatlan to recreate part of the history of this striking passage, which narrates the first successful attempt to drive a car from U.S. to South America.

A team of director, producer, cameraman and two Irish actors: Ed Byrne Dara O’Briain and Ed Byrne, will give life to a part of history embodied in the writings of the Americans who assure that their way through Mazatlan was very pleasant, doing special reference to the warmth of its people and remembering the night that they spent on the stairway of “El Clavadista” (the diver) where they slept for lack of financial resources.

This film that will be transmitted tentatively for December by the BBC television in London also highlight locations representative of the port as is its boardwalk, The Diver, Belmar Hotel, Sport Fishing, the Mazatlan-Durango superhighway and the cable-stayed bridge “Baluarte”.
