Series 3 Episode 19: Los Angeles to Laguna Beach

Michael Portillo strikes oil in the suburbs of Los Angeles, contemplates his navel in the orange groves of Riverside, makes a California Roll and paints a pretty picture in Laguna Beach. It's Mexican Independence Day and the locals are celebrating the country's hard-won independence from Spain in the early 19th century.
