Terra Nostra is a Brazilian telenovela, which was produced by and broadcast on Rede Globo in 1999. The story is set in the late 19th century and takes place at a time when slaves were freed in Brazil and there was a need for workers, especially on the coffee fazendas of Brazil. As a result new laborers were sought and a large number of Italians, looking for a better life, immigrated to Brazil to work there. Unlike many telenovela stories, the characters are not larger than life in "Terra Nostra." Instead, they are like everyday people who make everyday decisions. Consequently, the viewers can relate to what is happening in the story. "Terra Nostra" was written by Benedito Ruy Barbosa and directed by Jayme Monjardim. Both men are responsible for writing and directing other first-rate stories. The telenovela has many shots of nature and scenery. Musical director, Marcus Viana, puts together a music soundtrack for the telenovela. It is mainly filled with traditional Italian songs that are performed musicians such as Charlotte Church, Caetano Veloso, Zizi Possi, and Jerry Adriani. The soundtrack also includes original instrumental music by Viana, also a musician with experience from making soundtracks for other shows.

The Mondo Enduro round the world motorbike expedition attempted but did not cross the Zilov Gap in Central Siberia. In 2000 a follow-up expedition, Terra Circa, was organised by Dave Greenhough, brother of one of the Mondo Enduro team members. It was the first motorbike expedition to cross the infamous Zilov Gap. The route went from London across Europe, western Russia and Siberia to Vladivostok. The team then embarked for Japan and returned to Europe crossing the United States. It took 7 months and they drove 20 000 miles. The members were: Dave Greenhough, Austin Vince, Charlie Benner, Gerald Vince, Joe MacManus, and Matt Hill. Dave Greenhough had to leave early because of a knee injury, and Matt Hill jumped in again to finish with the others. Like its predecessor, Terra Circa is a shoestring expedition with rough camping the order of the day and has a cult following amongst adventure motorcyclists. The expedition was filmed and made into a six-part TV series, shown on British cable channel Men & Motors.
