Trouble with Trident: Uk's Nuclear Warheads (Episode #3318)

KQED World: Sat, May 2, 2015 -- 8:30 AM

France: A Pocket of Resistance in WWII - During the German occupation, residents in the small French village of Dieulefit helped save 1,500 Jews and others whose lives were threatened by the Nazis. Today, only a few of those villagers are still alive. One of them is 86-year-old Pascaline Cahen-Magnard. The secretary of the mayor, in 1943 she forged thousands of IDs for people who had gone into hiding in Dieulefit, while the local priest issued hundreds of fake christening certificates. What happened in this village during the Second World War only came to light a few years ago, partly thanks to the testimony of Cahen-Magnard. Denmark: The Ugly Business of Fur Farms - The global fur market is booming. One fifth of global demand for mink is met by Denmark. The country is home to over 1,400 mink farms, where animals are reportedly kept under hellish conditions. The mink industry is an unscrupulous business. Film footage shot in secret shows the appalling conditions that animals are subjected to at farms in Denmark. A related problem is that many of the animals raised on them escape, and are beginning to pose a growing threat to indigenous wildlife. Italy: Risks Faced by Child Refugees - Among the thousands of refugees fleeing Africa across the Mediterranean are many children making the journey by themselves. If they even reach Europe at all, they often end up victims of human traffickers and forced into prostitution. The Italian authorities are often unable to house the refugees who arrive on the country's shores. Even though many in Italy are willing to take them in, bureaucracy usually gets in the way. All too often, desperate and traumatized young refugees fall into the hands of criminals. GB/Scotland: The Trouble with Trident - The United Kingdom's nuclear arsenal, based in Scotland, has become a key election issue. The government wants to replace Trident, the sea-based nuclear weapons system, but the majority opinion in Scotland is that the whole program should be scrapped. The Scottish National Party (SNP) is particularly vociferous in its opposition to Trident. The UK's nuclear warheads are stored and loaded onto Trident submarines at the high-security Royal Naval Armaments Depot at Coulport and Faslane-on-Clyde near Glasgow. With the prospect of a Labour government that might reach a deal with the SNP to get rid of Trident, public debate about Britain's nuclear capabilities is raging.
