Developing Stories - Series 2
Population and Migration
The view from developing countries on population and migration.
The second installment of this ground-breaking BBC series was timed to coincide with the U.N. Conference on Population and Development in Cairo. With the guidance of Television Trust for the Environment, the BBC commissioned leading filmmakers from developing countries to create programs dealing with the interrelated issues of people, population, and migration from the perspective of those directly affected by these crises. These films reach beyond the usual dry statistics and portray instead the individual, human dramas that underlie the population and migration debate.
The titles in the series are:
Désounen-Dialogue with Death - Impressionistic look reveals the reality of daily life in Haiti.
The Legacy of Malthus - Argues that overpopulation is not the real cause of poverty.
The Tale of The Three Lost Jewels - A tale of love and hope in the Gaza Strip.
The Tree of Our Forefathers - A refugee family makes the long journey home from exile to Mozambique.
