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.

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.

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.

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.
