African Jigsaw Drama View Details Compare
Short
Synopsis

AFRICAN JIGSAW looks at the problems of urbanisation, its effects on tribal life and the casualties left in its wake. This is a complex problem facing most developing countries and the authors do not pretend the solution is a simple one, but examining the separate pieces of the jigsaw may help young and old alike to come to an understanding of the situation and, perhaps, to draw their own conclusions on its rights and wrongs.

Full with memorable tunes, this highly acclaimed work was broadcast on ITV and also won a Ford Conservation Award. Published in association with the World Wide Fund for Nature.

Arabica Drama View Details Compare
Short
Synopsis

This Rose and Conlon musical looks at the international coffee market to show how developing countries are simply pawns in the money games played by the major industrial powers. Although we are encouraged to be more conscientious consumers, we still buy basic commodities at the supermarket with barely a thought to how they got there. The attractive shiny coffee packets we choose from disguise the fact that the people growing and picking this coffee are paid virtually nothing, and that their countries are bankrupt and at the mercy of the World Bank or the IMF. And yet how can it be that just about everyone else - coffee merchants, companies, speculators - profits from the enterprise? In ARABICA, Rose and Conlon bring us another powerful message that demands urgent attention.

Ocean World Drama View Details Compare
Short
Synopsis

Man has always been fascinated by the sea, but today his exploitation of the earth’s resources is destroying this underwater world. Coral mining, whaling ships, commercial fishing vessels, oil spillages and domestic, industrial and nuclear wastes - this combined assault means that the ocean simply cannot sustain the extraordinary quantity and variety of species that it holds. The authors’ message is clear and simple: if man continues to misuse the sea, he will ultimately kill all the life in it. With a powerful and moving score, OCEAN WORLD was shown in Channel 4’s Fragile Earth series, narrated by Sir David Attenborough. Published in association with the World Wide Fund for Nature.

Yanomamo Drama View Details Compare
Short
Synopsis

YANOMAMO vividly tells of the destruction of the Amazon Rainforest and its effect on the Yanomamo, the oldest Indian tribe living there. They lead a way of life in harmony with nature, which, undisturbed, would survive with the forest indefinitely. However, their existence, and that of millions of animals and plant species, is threatened by the arrival of outsiders who assume that the forest soil is permanently rich and that once the trees are cleared, the land will be very productive. But after two years, no crops will grow because the richness of the jungle is in the trees, not in the soil. Thus the delicate balance of nature is being systematically removed and soon the rainforests, which are crucial to the world’s eco-system, will disappear together with the Indians and the wildlife. Is there the time or the will to save them?

YANOMAMO was filmed as Song of the Forest and shown in Channel 4’s Fragile Earth series, narrated by Sting. Published in association with the World Wide Fund for Nature.
