- Education, education : what does an education get you?
- When the Chinese government privatized universities in 1997 education became a commodity, with some institutions charging the equivalent of 60 years of income in exchange for a college degree. And while many saw the steep cost as a good investment, the system now produces more than 2 million graduates every year who join the "ant tribe"--a battalion of recent grads unable to find work. This program examines trends in Chinese education that leave young people barred from good employment opportunities, or hopelessly in debt, making schooling a cause of poverty instead of a way out of it. A viewable/printable instructor's guide is available online. A part of the series Why Poverty? (Portions with English subtitles, 59 minutes + 7 minutes of bonus material)

- Into eternity a film for the future /
- "Into Eternity is the first feature documentary to explore the mind-boggling scientific and philosophical questions long-term nuclear waste storage poses. Structured as a message to future generations, the film focuses on the Onkalo underground waste repository now being built in Finland, one of the first nuclear waste storage facilities. Once the repository is full in about 100 years, it will be closed and sealed 'forever'."--Container.
