The Decade of Destruction, Classroom Version Series
The Rainforest

The ecology of a rainforest.

A printer-friendly version of this page

9 minutes
Directed by Adrian Cowell
Produced by Adrian Cowell, Nomad Films Ltd



This program uses time-lapse and satellite photography as dramatic visual aids to provide a basic understanding of the mechanics of the world's largest rainforest.

It shows clouds forming at the Atlantic coastline and then drifting southwest over the heart of the rainforest. It explains how 3/4 of the rain that falls in the forest is caught by the trees and leaves, and is pumped back into the sky again. Without the trees there would be no clouds, no rain and impoverished soil.

Other titles in the series are:

The Colonists - Colonists invading the rainforest.

The Development Road - The road to rainforest destruction.

The Indians - The displaced Indian tribes of the Amazon rainforest.

The Rubber Tappers - Rubber tappers live sustainable lifestyle.

The Politicians - Politicians plunder the Amazon rainforest.
