Mediterranean Jellyfish Scourge (#716) Duration: 26:00 STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: none)

Tunisia: Jellyfish Scourge in the Mediterranean - Tunisia's coastline is under threat from an influx of jellyfish. The creatures arrive in the water tanks of large merchant ships and present problems to both the fishing and tourism industries. The number of jellyfish in the Mediterranean Sea is increasing at an alarming rate. Conditions for the creatures are best at the height of summer. One of the factors contributing to their spread is climate change. Local fishermen and women, as well as the tourism industry on the North African coast are feeling the effects. In Tunisia, researchers, the government, and those in the fishing industry are desperately looking for a solution. Scientists are hoping to make the best out of the jellyfish plague by extracting collagen for use in the cosmetics industry. The species causing the most problems are those not native to the Mediterranean Sea. Many tourists are turned off by the prospect of encountering jellyfish on the beach. An EU project comprising Mediterranean countries is working together with Tunisia to finding a long-term solution. Vietnam: In Nguyen van Quy's Living Room - Nguyen van Quy lives in Hanoi, where he composes instrumental music. He says Beethoven is his idol because he learnt nearly everything from him. The great German composer inspired him to write his own sonatas. Bolivia: Dreaming of the Sea - Bolivia lost its coastline more than 130 years ago in the so-called War of the Pacific against Chile. Many Bolivian people have never recovered from the loss; the matter is still considered a national trauma. The country still has a navy, which is preparing for the day Bolivia regains access to the sea. Like most Bolivians, many sailors in the navy have never even seen the sea. They train on Lake Titicaca, 3800 meters above sea level. Mozambique: Transforming Second-Hand Clothes into Designer Wear - Second-hand clothing comprises about half of the textiles imported to Mozambique. Few people in the country can afford to buy new clothes. Twin sisters Nelly and Nelsa Guambe have turned that trend into a successful business model. It's the first of its kind in the country. They re-custom clothes from all over the world, particularly from Europe. The designers describe the style as "modern vintage." The pair used to make their own clothes because they couldn't afford to buy any.
