Ssuuna Golooba used to work as a Photo journalist in Uganda before he decided to go to Europe to seek his fortune as an undocumented migrant. He had to find out the hard way that pastures in Europe are not as green as they seem to be. Ssuuna ended up living in anonymity of an undocumented migrant for more than five years. He survived on the scarce income he generated by doing irregular cleaning jobs. Ssuuna was in Holland in 2005 when a fire broke our at Schiphol Airport Amsterdam, an accident that reached international headlines. Eleven undocumented migrants, who were kept in captivity before their deportation by airplane, died in the fire. Many more were injured. This event was a turning point in Ssuuna's perception of Europe. He could have never imagined that a disaster of this scale could take place in wealthy, well - organized Europe. "Many people sell their assets in the name of traveling to Europe to make a fortune over night but I want to warn them that the Schiphol incident was one in many that are not even know." Ssuuna said. The blast triggered his almost departed instincts as a journalist: In a way it opened his eyes to the miserable situation he was in himself. Now he could clearly see that his life was trapped between false expectations of Europe and too high expectations of his family back home in Uganda. How could he convince his family of the difficult situation that undocumented migrants like him were in, deprived from any rights, protection and opportunities.

Europe: A Natural History was a co-production between the BBC Natural History Unit and the public-service broadcasters of Germany and Austria, ZDF and ORF respectively. The executive producers were Walter Köhler, Mike Gunton and Reinhard Radke. The music was composed by Barnaby Taylor and performed by the BBC Concert Orchestra, and narration for the BBC broadcasts was provided by actor Sean Pertwee.

Passport to Europe is a television show on the Travel Channel. The show follows the bubbly and upbeat television host Samantha Brown around Europe visiting various popular European cities, including prime travel destinations such as Berlin, Munich, Amsterdam, Venice, Florence, Rome, Paris and London, as well as smaller cities such as Stratford-upon-Avon, Penzance and Oxford in England. In the course of each show, Brown tours each city and interacts with the town's locals. She also visits local landmarks - including popular restaurants and shopping locales - and educates viewers on events in the city's history. The show was nominated for a Daytime Emmy in 2006 in the same category that the Travel Channel series Great Hotels went on to win. In July 2006, Brown announced that Passport to Europe had officially wrapped, and that Passport to Latin America would start filming in September 2006. Passport to Europe won an Emmy award for "Outstanding Lifestyle Directing." Brown was quoted saying: "We got the news last night — we were in our hotel bar having a wrap of Mexico City drink. Many of us had retired to our hotel rooms to pack for leaving the next day or just go to bed. Joan McCord got the news and so of course we changed from our PJ’s back into our clothes and went back down to the bar so we could order a couple of bottles of Champagne. We are all absolutely thrilled…beyond thrilled to be recognized this way. PineRidge and Travel Channel now have TWO EMMYs for Great Hotels and Passport to Europe. Not bad at all."
