From ending state rationing to cutting one million public-sector jobs, one of the last communist bastions in the world has begun rolling back the state on unprecedented scale two years ago. In an hour long documentary, the lovely Simon Reeve meets ordinary Cubans whose lives are being transformed - from the owners of fledgling businesses to the newly rich estate agents selling properties worth up to £750,000.systems in the world - while embracing a form of capitalism.
