10:06 pm
forgotten. ♪ it has the feel, still, of a forgotten paradise. there are those who believe that the area can come back, that it must come back, that the future is in hotels and resorts and restaurants for wealthy visitors as it once was. take this place, for instance -- the trident hotel. expensive, luxurious. best of all, i'm the only guest. oh, did mention it comes with a

10:12 pm
threshold where things start to not be the things that you loved about the place in the first place and how do you guard against that? >> michael: you know, tony, port antonio is a long way from getting there. it has not progressed out of the '50s. >> jon: it's had very little tourism in recent years. >> anthony: why isn't there lots of -- ? everybody loves reggae, everybody loves bob marley, everybody loves spicy delicious jamaican food. what the problem? >> jon: because you don't get off a plane and go a hundred yards to an all-inclusive. there's no real lift here. you have to get here. >> anthony: it's that simple, there's no -- >> jon: it's as simple as a lift and it's as simple as we're shrouded by the blue mountains and it's an effort to get here so it filters out certain forms of travelers. so we have to make it a little bit easier to get -- >> anthony: i mean, you get beat out by a lot of lame islands, let's face it. >> jon: oh, totally.
10:13 pm
>> luke: yeah. and even in jamaica, lamer areas. for me, i say if someone says, "oh i've been to jamaica" and they haven't been to port antonio, i'm like, "really you didn't get a real feeling of jamaica." >> michael: you can go many places in the world and find natural beauty, people who are genuinely warm, where there's a strong culture of food, strong culture in terms of music, and, at the same time, be able to be a part of a community and you can be a visitor without being a part of the tourist industry. ♪

>> anthony: hello. during world war ii, british naval intelligence officer ian fleming came to jamaica on a secret mission to investigate possible u-boat activity. like the legendary character he would later create, he was a spy. the mission came to nothing, but fleming fell immediately in love with the island and vowed to return, which he did, buying this place, goldeneye. at the time considered very spartan, a cottage, a single room really, a few smaller rooms in the back, but an incredible view. he spent much of the rest of his life here writing a book each year at this desk. you know those books.
10:19 pm
today, fleming's cottage has been enlarged and made more luxurious as a hotel, but the original house still stands along with some improvements. grotto, eh? what did every young american boy want? every red-blooded american male born in 1956, i can tell you. they wanted a grotto. it sounded pretty good to me at 12. as i got older i started to think about these things, like, "exactly who was in that grotto before me" becomes more of a concern as you grow up. it's like -- did ron jeremy just leave the grotto? am i the first one in the grotto? has someone changed the water in the grotto? these were -- these were concerns later in life, but this was it. i wanted a grotto. i still kind of do. thank you so much. this is totally better than the playboy mansion.
10:20 pm
you know that the playboy mansion totally smells like old man ear stink. the current owner of goldeneye is another unusual man, chris blackwell, legendary music producer turned hotelier. over the years, blackwell has expanded the property into a resort. its gates reaching right up to the fishing beach at neighboring oracabessa. blackwell has big plans for the area. ♪ the next day, i leave goldeneye's luxurious embrace, headed into town for something, well, i just had to have. a long time favorite. what do we have here? oh, oxtail. >> chris: yeah, man. curried goat. >> anthony: oh sweet. i don't care whether it's the

bronx or kingston or wherever i can get it, oxtail, curried goat, callaloo, and, of course, rice and pigeon peas. got to have that. got to love the food in this country. >> chris: man, it's the best. >> anthony: it's such a mix. >> chris: asian. oh, yeah. >> anthony: african. a lot of people totally miss out, i mean curry goat, that's -- >> chris: yeah, man. it's asian stuff. >> anthony: it comes from the east indies, what they used to call -- >> chris: that's true. >> anthony: chef chris's cook-shop has become something of a local institution, a thriving business in a town that's seen better days. how long have you been open here? >> chris: i've been open, this little shop, for 13 years. >> anthony: 13 years? >> chris: yeah, man. >> anthony: the town changed in that time or stayed the same? >> chris: well, right now, you know, we're in, um, our economy is not doing so good right now so -- >> anthony: why not? it's one of the most beautiful areas in the world. >> chris: yeah, for real, we have a beautiful waterfront. >> anthony: beautiful weather. >> chris: yeah, beautiful ladies. >> anthony: fantastic food. >> chris: yeah, what more could a guy ask for?
10:22 pm
>> anthony: what do you think went wrong? i mean, why -- why would people stop coming? >> chris: i guess the guys in the top seat messed it up so they're trying to correct it now. you know? >> anthony: it's expanding fast. >> chris: yeah, it is. >> anthony: the town. >> chris: it is. >> anthony: i mean, they're going to be building all the way -- >> chris: yeah, all the way down there. >> anthony: all the way around. >> chris: yeah, so -- >> anthony: so that's thousands of tourists. >> chris: yeah, thousands. >> anthony: like, probably -- >> chris: to be honest, i'm waiting for that moment. i don't want to think. ♪ >> chris: we really need that, you know, because this town was dying fast and real fast so chris blackwell came back and now he's booming the town so it's a good step in the right direction. >> anthony: oh, thank you. oh yeah, see now, now i'm happy. that is just beautiful. nice place to grow up? >> chris: it is. >> anthony: what -- what's it like being a kid?

>> chris: my tale is that i used to spend it at the beach. >> anthony: that's pretty good. >> chris: yeah. >> anthony: who gets to do that? >> chris: well, i guess only me and my friends. >> anthony: but, i mean, do you ever, do you ever take it for granted like you ever say -- do you ever get -- ? >> chris: yeah, we do. >> anthony: you do? >> chris: we do, we do. see, the thing about it when we really need it that's the time we can't have it, you know? because a lot of our waterfronts have been gone and, uh, we have very little right now. you know, it's okay we have james bond beach like ten minutes walk from here also so at least we are one of the lucky ones. hey! you know, progressive

♪ >> anthony: it's inevitable, of course, that next door to goldeneye there would be a james bond beach. >> carl: all of the bond movies were conceptualized and written here. >> anthony: when blackwell heard i wanted to visit the local fishermen, he hooked me up with his good friend carl to accompany me. i'm here to hit dr. hoe's, a local rum bar where one can indulge in a typical hard-working fisherman's breakfast -- rum. >> anthony: so we drinking rum here, we drinking beer, we drinking rum and beer? >> carl: all i know, it's hardcore.

10:29 pm
now revive the fish stock around the island. >> anthony: so if this becomes a protected sanctuary what are you going to do for a living? >> carl: yeah, so you have to go -- >> anthony: further out. >> carl: -- further out to sea for deep-sea fishing. >> anthony: that means more gas. >> carl: more gas, less fish. so it's a strain, right? >> anthony: is there a future for the traditional fishing industry in jamaica or do you think, like every place else in the caribbean, is it going to end up an entirely tourist economy? >> anthony: this is -- >> carl: but what is happening >> anthony: i keep -- here's what i'm kind of getting at. rich people want to live what they see as a simple life. in their minds, they want to live the life of a jamaican fisherman. they want to live the life of somebody who doesn't have a lot of money, but the people who
10:30 pm
actually do that now are giving up their living and essentially entering the tourist sector. there's a certain amount of weird irony at work here. who gets to live in paradise? >> carl: nobody because guess what -- >> there is a lot of things going on here, right? i write a piece of paper. the native here. >> anthony: this architect's model sits in one of goldeneye's offices showing what oracabessa's coastline will look like if all goes according to plan. >> fisherman: no, i'm talking the truth. >> anthony: i'm no expert on local politics but whatever is going on here has clearly stirred up some strong emotions.

[ all speaking over one another ] >> carl: yeah. no, no, no, go back. go back. >> fisherman: don't do that.
10:32 pm
>> carl: no, no, go sit down. >> man: for the interview. >> anthony: which is better, to be your own man, uphold family tradition in a dangerous ever-shrinking, ever more difficult business trying to catch fish in the sea or carry a golf bag for a wealthy tourist? i couldn't tell you. i was in the service industry cooking people's food for most of my working life so it's not like i have anything against it, but i don't know. >> carl: it's a joyous day. let us find the spirit in man and travel to the unknown. at the end because we're here in the present that it just started. it is coming we out of the unknown, out of the nothingness, and we're going to go on into the information highway into the celestial. we are what you call astral travelers, so traveling dimension to dimension. if one man die, all men dead.

10:38 pm
by a guy who lived here two months out of the year. that place down there, probably the same, two months a year. sad to say i think it's unlikely that 50 years from now anyone but the extraordinarily fortunate, the extraordinarily connected, and the extraordinarily rich will be able to even look at a vista like this. that is my personal theory. look, here i am, fully aware of the irony of the situation. it's like the whole preservation thing, who preserve for who? save the reef, for who? save the beach, for whom? not you, probably. ♪
10:39 pm
later that evening, blackwell invited me to his private bar just down the cliff from fleming's old villa. there are very few pieces of land anywhere on earth like this, especially with this kind of legendary status. >> chris blackwell: legendary status, yes, it's fleming. it's really bond's birthplace. >> anthony: chris blackwell is the founder of island records. he's credited with discovering bob marley and spreading the gospel of reggae into the mainstream all across the world. to the extent that one person could sort of be responsible for the soundtrack of your life, you are responsible for much of the soundtrack of my life. you signed roxy music and brian eno both, yes?
10:40 pm
>> chris blackwell: yes. >> anthony: did you have any idea, signing bob marley, the extent to which his image alone would blow up to -- to, you know, che guevara level. >> chris blackwell: bob somehow managed to touch people in every corner of the world in different cultures, different societies. um, no, i never could've imagined. i do not think anybody could've imagined, it's so unbelievable. >> anthony: having sold island records for a sum rumored to be in the hundreds of millions of dollars, blackwell spends his time, well, doing whatever he wants. >> anthony: you have a number of hotel properties, uh, rum business. >> chris blackwell: mm-hmm. >> anthony: what's the master plan? >> chris blackwell: master plan? >> anthony: or are you just having fun? >> chris blackwell: well, always is to have fun, it's part of the master plan. you only live around here one time so i'm very excited about here, what i'm doing here.
10:41 pm
i'm trying to break a little resort town. it's something that filters into the town, filters into the parish, filters into the country. >> anthony: lately the project at hand is the oracabessa fish sanctuary set up to protect the local fish habitat and breeding grounds. a noble cause, but one that has put blackwell squarely at odds with some of his neighbors. it seems to me that most people who come to jamaica pretty much stay within the compound of, you know, sandals or whatever and don't really get out there much. >> chris blackwell: it's a business model and that business model works well for people. ♪ the market that i'm going for are the ones on the high level
10:42 pm
in terms of a high cost level. >> anthony: is it an inevitability that basically all of the caribbean -- that it's essentially going to end up as a service economy? >> chris blackwell: yes, i think -- yes, i think, i think mainly so and then it's based on tourism. it's based on people visiting. >> anthony: it's a tough balance. the engine that's going to preserve or save is often dependent on who's coming to look and what they're willing to pay to come and look. can there be a balance, do you think? i mean, can a place this beautiful be unspoiled forever? >> chris blackwell: i think, i think there could be a couple hundred places like this in jamaica. as long as there are people who can go and spend some money in communities. go to little restaurants, go to little bar, go to, you know, shop, that's essential for jamaica to really thrive.
10:43 pm
>> anthony: if life were a bond film, who would you be in a bond film? >> chris blackwell: well, there's only one hero in a bond film. that's -- >> anthony: oh. you'd be the hero? >> chris blackwell: i'd have to be, i'd have to figure that out, yes. >> anthony: i don't know that i'd be the villain. i'd be like number 17. >> chris blackwell: he has a happy -- unhappy ending. >> anthony: yes. frequently. >> chris blackwell: and his end is cut short, yeah.
