Home Place Series
Exploring Human Ecology with J. Stan Rowe

Replaces the human-centered concept of environment with ecosystems.

A printer-friendly version of this page 26 minutes
Directed by Robert J. Long
Produced by Waterhen Film Productions
Narrated by Liona Boyd

INSIDE-OUTSIDE, the first program in the "Home Place" series, explores the problem of recognizing and understanding ecosystems from within their boundaries. Images of Earth from space have provided us with a view from outside, making possible a new, more complete perspective. This program discards the human-centered concept of environment, replacing it with a more universal idea of ecosystems. The ecosphere concept is introduced as an alternate world view, in which Earth itself is conceived as a living organism, as an ecological being.

Other titles in the series are:

Life Cycles - Life is a property of Earth.

Partnership - Changing our present exploitative relationship with Earth to one of partnership.

Going Home - Ways to reconnect with the Earth.

"This excellent series forces the viewer to take a hard look at our exploitive, damaging role as humans in the Earth's ecosystems...The narrative is easy to understand, yet it addresses these important issues in a sophisticated and thorough manner...highly appropriate addition to public, school, and academic libraries."
Rue Herbert, University of South Florida, MC Journal

"As much philosophy as science went into these thought-provoking programs. The end result is an impelling video series of value in any library collection."
Teacher Librarian
