Summary This year Fork goes Mediterranean. The ninth of the acclaimed A Fork in the Road series travels to eight countries around the Mediterranean. Jump aboard as Pria Viswalingam takes his own quirky ride around this most famous of seas.From the grandeur of Venice, a sinking city with a sinking population, to a tanner's family in the ancient city of Fez in Morocco, to the hedonistic delights of a sultry summer in the south of France, Pria takes us a on a unique journey.Also stopping at Israel, Spain, Turkey, Gibraltar and Greece it's an eight part journey that offers fresh insights from the people that know best - the locals. In episode 7 Pria takes us to the country nestled on a spectacular limestone monolith, known as the 'Meeting Place of Continents': Gibraltar. At the very entrance to the Mediterranean Sea stands 'the Rock.' Gibraltar has been a British possession for exactly 300 years. In that time it has formed its own culture from the myriad of peoples who have come to live here and it is a culture that is neither Spanish nor British, but unique to the rock. What is it like to live in a country that is only six and a half square kilometres with nearly thirty thousand inhabitants; where soggy fish and chips share the table with tantalising tapas; where each family has five cars and thus, there are more vehicles than parking spaces; and where the airport is a five minute walk from town? And where do you go to get away from it all..? Well, across the border to Spain, of course. (An SBS local production, in English) (Part 7)
