Video: BBC's 'The Travel Show' airs segment on Niagara Falls

Adepitan

Tourism in Niagara Falls, N.Y., and Niagara Falls, Ont., is "a tale of two cities," according to the BBC World Service's "The Travel Show."

The story of the underdeveloped American side and its more advanced neighbor across the border - between them there are "stark" differences, the BBC says - was recently broadcast on the network that reaches more than 70 million people worldwide.

Niagara Falls, N.Y., and the American side does get credit for its cuisine and the ongoing development of new hotels.

The roughly six-minute segment features an interview with Mayor Paul A. Dyster, shots from Niagara Falls State Park and from the Canadian side of the falls and the Niagara Falls Culinary Institute.

The segment was filmed here last month. The show opens with host Ade Adepitan at the state park. Watch the whole show here (the Falls segment starts at about 1:30):
