MANILA, Philippines – History Channel host Anthony Morse spent two weeks here last August to shoot an hour-long episode of Hidden Cities, a show that aims to take a look at a country’s forgotten treasures.
The episode, which will be aired on History at 9 PM, Wednesday (January 4), will feature Manila, Corregidor, Palawan and Kalinga, and an interview with former First Lady Imelda Marcos.

Ivan Man Dy of Old Manila Walks, who toured Morse around Intramuros and other parts of the city, described the episode as “a very good portrayal of our side of the country.”
“It’s a good way of selling the country… Some people have only seen poverty and the Manila bus crisis, which are not too pleasant,” Dy told abs-cbnNEWS.com.
“I hope they will have more features on the country’s history and culture,” he added.
Asked how it was working with Morse and the rest of the production staff, Dy said: “It was fun… It’s a very popular show with a huge following… It’s not really that formal. It shows an insider’s perspective. It’s one of my favorite shows.”
Hidden Cities premiered last November 23, 2011 with an episode on Vietnam. The show aims to cover seven different countries across Asia this season.

I liked the way Morse juxtaposed the historical docu of the 1986 revolution with the usual negations of Imelda.

I watched this earlier tonight and I loved it! Seeing the host visit all these historic sites makes me want to explore our country more. It also made me realize that I don’t know a lot about our history. Or maybe I already forgot everything I learned in HEKASI hahaha!

Just finished watching the episode. Very nice! Well-produced and super interesting. I learned a lot of things that I didn’t even know about before, such as the Iwahig Prison Camp and Kalinga tribe. I think super nag enjoy din si Anthony Morse. First time ko sha nakita to sing for his hosts on an episode, and a song which he himself had written at that. Watching the episode made me realize more how rich and colorful our history is. And that we have so many wonderful places of interest and history such as Intramuros that are sadly not as well-preserved… Read more »
