When Worlds Collide | From Los Angeles to Latin America to Spain | PBS

WHEN WORLDS COLLIDE, premiering on Monday, September 27, 2010, at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT on PBS, with host Rub?n Mart?nez, begins on the streets of Los Angeles in 2010 and travels to Spain and Latin America, where contact first occurred between Spanish conquistadors and native peoples. This epic odyssey traces the impact that "New World" innovations had on the "Old World" during an era almost always described as "the conquest." In reality, the most important consequence of the era was the radical change that both worlds experienced, resulting in an entirely new "mestizo" or mixed culture, an important part of the heritage of more than 30 million Latinos in the U.S. today.
