Coke's water bomb the Dasani fiasco /
On a British sitcom, two characters bottled tap water and sold it as Peckham Spring Water. More recently, Coca-Cola launched its purified-water lifestyle drink, Dasani, in the U.K. The connection was not overlooked. This program tracks Dasani's progressive PR nightmare in Britain -- first as newspapers screamed "Coke Sells Tap Water for 95p," and then as Coca-Cola recalled 500,000 bottles due to potentially carcinogenic contamination at their factory. It also considers an even larger problem as worldwide Coke sales continue to flatten: without Dasani, the soft drink giant has no bottled water product for the lucrative European market.

DVD 3936
Shell shock failure of corporate ethics /
When oil conglomerate Shell stunned investors by announcing a 20 percent reduction in its proven reserves, pensions and portfolios suffered around the world. This program reveals a pattern of exaggeration and cover-up at the company's top level -- specifically involving the former chairman and head of production. An unflinching analysis of a failure in business ethics, Shell Shock raised complex and timely questions: At what point did protection of the company's image usurp shareholder interests? How did financial industry safeguards let such a crisis develop? And how can similar fiascoes be prevented in the future?
