Editorial Reviews

"Planet in Peril: Battle Lines" takes viewers on a journey around the world to places where natural resources are caught in the crossfire of conflict. CNN anchor Anderson Cooper, chief medical correspondent Dr. Sanjay Gupta and "The Oprah Winfrey Show" correspondent and National Geographic Channel host Lisa Ling travel to the front lines to investigate the battles being waged over oil, animals and food.

Cooper and Gupta travel to Cameroon and the Democratic Republic of Congo, where dwindling food supplies push people farther into the jungle, exposing them to mysterious and deadly diseases that scientists think could lead to the next pandemic. Ling heads to the Niger Delta, where the thirst for oil has sparked a deadly battle in Nigeria. In addition, Gupta investigates a company based in Peru that residents and health officials have accused of emitting poisonous gases into the community, and Ling reports on why one of the last remaining pockets of African elephants in Central Africa is under threat.

This product is manufactured on demand using DVD-R recordable media. Amazon.com's standard return policy will apply.

5.0 out of 5 stars Everyone should see this documenntary December 13, 2008
I just finished watching this on TV on CNN and I cannot explain how I feel, only that everyone should see it to experience it and come to his/her own conclusion. It was very well done and gave insight into the many atrocities which plague our planet, and that the main reason the planet is in such peril is caused by one species alone, the human species. I will certainly get this as a gift for my children. Hopefully, this documentary will bring about changes; if it doesn't, we will be the species to be in peril.

This is the second of CNN's new documentaries on the global environmental situation. The first is Planet in Peril. This documentary is more interesting than the first because it does a better job of getting down to real life in foreign countries about what environmental problems mean. The story on the factory in Peru sadly could duplicated all over the Third World. The section on the mass murder of the African elephants was truly appalling even by the standards of somebody like myself who has studied environmental destruction for over 20 years. I have a Listmania list on my profile of documentaries on environmental problems if people want to see more material like this.

5.0 out of 5 stars Planet still in peril August 1, 2014
Verified Purchase
One might expect this news material to become quickly dated. But some of it is timeless, as it deals graphically with ongoing problems. Witness the brief reference to Boco Harem. That movement is even more significant to day than it was at the time.
An excellent example of in depth, behind the scenes journalism made graphic and interesting.

5.0 out of 5 stars Exactly for what I was waiting January 29, 2010
Verified Purchase
For that more you can expect from the very serious and professional journalist Anderson Cooper. Simply the best information to keep up to date with the reality in which we are living. The DVD came in perfect condition and it was sent by eager willingness.

5.0 out of 5 stars Must see television and must give as dvd gift. December 13, 2008
Verified Purchase
Excellent documentary. Only negative was Lisa was a little self absorbed but the guys were right on facts, and stayed on point and moved along with their segment. Everyone should watch it and give as gifts to help spread the word about the dangers. Great footage.
