  • MORNING
  • 6:00 am
    Bonsai People - The Vision of Muhammad Yunus This documentary takes a compelling look at one Nobel Peace Prize winner's attempt to harness the power of the free market to solve the problems of poverty, hunger and inequality. Muhammad Yunus - 1 of only 7 people in the world to receive the Nobel Peace Prize, the Presidential Medal of Freedom and the Congressional Gold Medal - pioneered the innovative banking program known as microcredit. The program, which provides poor people with small loans they can use to launch businesses, has since spread to every continent and has benefited more than 100 million families. More recently, Yunus felt the need to move beyond microcredit into other fields, including healthcare. This doc examines how he, in partnership with some of the world's most visionary businesses, launched ventures designed to tackle social problems. One such collaboration with Danone provides affordable, nutritious yogurt for malnourished children in Bangladesh. duration 57:20   STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: none)

Cahill takes us on a journey into the "secret world of plants," revealing an astonishing landscape where plants eavesdrop on each other, talk to their allies, call in insect mercenaries and nurture their young. It is a world of pulsing activity, where plants communicate, co-operate and sometimes, wage all-out war. duration 55:16   SRND51 TVG (Secondary audio: DVI)
