DNA and Dollars

DNA and Dollars takes the viewer behind the scenes in clinics and laboratories to meet some of the major players in Canadian genetic research and into the homes of patients who have donated their DNA in the hope of finding treatments or cures for diseases. In the midst of this hope, nagging questions remain as to the ownership and patenting of human genetic materials. The biotech industry rightly claims that it takes a decade or more and millions of dollars to get a discovery from the lab bench to the drugstore shelf. But the public concerns about the manipulation and commercialization of human genes, cloning, genetic privacy seem to be lost as science marches onwards. (2002 ; 48 min.)

This short documentary film introduces a Western audience to six compelling people living in The Gambia - people who don't fit the stereotypes we might have about people from Africa.

Farley Mowat

For 60 years, controversial Canadian author Farley Mowat has raged against humankind's cavalier treatment of nature's resources. In more than 40 books he has documented, among other things, the cruel treatment of the Innu people and the animals of the north as well as the rape of the Atlantic Ocean by fishing nations. Mowat was "green" long before the notion became fashionable. Now, the iconic Mowat has taken a page from his own book. At age 86 and in the late autumn of his life, he is donating his oceanfront property in Cape Breton to the Nova Scotia Nature Trust - his way of protecting all the living things on his 70 hectares of land. Do as I do and as I say - the story of Farley Mowat's environmental legacy. (Original Air Date: November 4, 2007)
