Life After Diamonds: The scarred landscape and social deprivation following Sierra Leone’s post-civil war industrial collapse.

Sierra Leone’s mining communities are facing immense challenges and destruction following the decline of the diamond industry. Cooperatives in the Kono district are engaging in reclamation of wasted mining sites into agricultural productive land to create food security, encourage wider industry adoption of Corporate Social Responsibility and promote improved legislation. The refilling of pits protects freshwater and groundwater reserves, and minimises health concerns like mosquitoes and drownings. The methods carried out by environmental foundations to recover the Sierra Leonean landscape seek to diversify options for livelihood, alleviate poverty and improve local social development.

Barber Shop City: London’s barber shops provide a base for the capital’s communities to come together.

The city of London is home to over 8 million people, a great mass of humanity that has given rise to thriving communities and buzzing social scenes. Barber shops are an example of where these communities coalesce, welcoming people from across social divides and from diverse cultural identities. The subjects of this film are three barber shops across the British capital, in the districts of Hackney, Herne Hill, and Catford, where we meet shopkeepers whose establishments act as a melting pot for people who call London home.

Families: The Unheard Victims Of Prison Sentences

Families On Trial: The silent anguish suffered by the innocent families of prisoners

England and Wales has the highest imprisonment rate in Western Europe, at 153 per 100,000 of the population. The prison population of the UK stands at over 92,000, but on top of this figure are the countless more individuals whose lives are shattered by prison sentences. Families of prisoners are the invisible victims of crime, serving their own sentence of isolation, stigma and financial struggle. Yet maintaining contact with loved ones is vital; prisoners who are supported and visited by their families are 25% less likely to re-offend than those who have no family contact or support. These three profiles give an insight into the heartbreak and hardship suffered by family members of prisoners, but also examine the crucial contribution they make to their rehabilitation.

Vietnam: My orange pain (RT Documentary)

Posted by bgtvmediaonline on 2014-09-22


50 years after the US military intervention in the Vietnam War, the weapons it used continue to harm the local population. Unexploded mines still take lives and the consequences of “Agent Orange” claim new victims. A defoliant used by the US Air Force to destroy forests where Vietcong guerrilla fighters were taking cover, “Agent Orange” is highly toxic to humans. The chemical not only severely harmed the health of those immediately exposed to it, but also led to birth defects in subsequent generations. Its impact is still being felt in Vietnam, where it is estimated that around 5 million people are suffering from its damaging effects. They call it their “orange pain.”

Conspiracy of Silence (Banned Discovery Channel Documentary)

Posted by bgtvmediaonline on 2014-09-19

Tim Brown

Conspiracy of Silence, a documentary listed for viewing in TV Guide Magazine, was to be aired on the Discovery Channel, on May 3, 1994. This documentary exposed a network of religious leaders and Washington politicians who flew children to Washington D.C. for sex orgies.
Many children suffered the indignity of wearing nothing but their underwear and a number displayed on a piece of cardboard hanging from their necks when being auctioned off to foreigners in Las Vegas, Nevada, and Toronto, Canada.
At the last minute, before airing, unknown congressmen threatened the TV Cable industry with restrictive legislation if this documentary was aired.
