A Series of 6 Programs Series
Not The Numbers Game

Six films from around the world on women solving the twin problems of population and development.

A printer-friendly version of this page

60 minutes
Produced by Emily Marlow & Jenny Richards
for Television Trust for the Environment



The Cairo Conference on Population and Development marked a watershed in international debate about global population. Instead of the familiar, stale old argument about 'numbers' and ' targets', the conference participants focused instead on the needs and aspirations of women and men everywhere, and how - by working together to meet them - the nations of the world can help stabilize world population.

But how are individual countries and communities shaping up to the challenges set in Cairo? NOT THE NUMBERS GAME looks at the progress - or the lack of it - in Bosnia, Cambodia, India, Indonesia, Peru and Uganda.

Made by women filmmakers from their own countries, the programs feature powerful human stories about the hopes, aspirations and achievements of women and men around the world.

(The six films were edited into a single 44-minute film for the BBC series "Earth Report." This program is also available under the title Not the Numbers Game: BBC Version.)

The titles in the series are:

Mothers of Malappuram - Literacy and access to health services slow population growth in India.

Land of Widows - A midwife in post civil war Cambodia helps other poor women with health services.

On the Way - A new sex education project in Peru combats teenage pregnancy.

The Cutting Edge - A Ugandan project attempts to change attitudes about female genital mutilation.

Fighting Back - Women in Bosnia are rebuilding war-torn lives.

Invisible Garments, Expensive Soles - Nike and other multinationals are moving production to developing countries like Indonesia.
