Six hour-long programs offered viewers an opportunity to see the world through the  eyes of film makers from the developing world, where environmental issues are seen as a matter of survival. This episode shows the effects of the once-vaunted Green Revolution in India. Instead of massive harvests of wheat, pesticide poisoning and fertilizer shortages have turned the revolution's workers into a new serf class and created a bureaucratic nightmare.
