    Global Voices [#526] Land Rush How do you feed the world? 75% of Mali's population are farmers, but rich, land-hungry nations like China and Saudi Arabia are leasing Mali's land in order to turn large areas into agribusiness farms. Many Malian peasants do not welcome these efforts, seeing them as yet another manifestation of imperialism. As Mali experiences a military coup, the developers are scared off ? but can Mali's farmers combat food shortages and escape poverty on their own terms? duration 56:46   STEREO

    Focus On Europe [#3117] Holding Fido Hostage Populist parties are on the rise in Europe. Beppe Grillo's Five Star Movement in Italy and the far-right Golden Dawn party in Greece are just two examples. In Britain, the right-wing populist UK Independence Party is railing against the EU, immigrants and the unemployed, putting the established parties under pressure.
    ROMANIA: THE DOG MAFIA - For years, animal rights advocates from all over the world have sought to save dogs in Romania. But it seems their good intentions are being exploited by an unscrupulous mafia. Stray dogs on the streets of Romania are a well-known problem. For years, Romanian animal rescue centers have been supported by generous donations from abroad, with donors seeking to combat the problem in humane ways. But it appears that many such centers kill the dogs on arrival and then continue to list them as resident in order to claim the money.
    BRITAIN: THE THREAT FROM THE RIGHT - For years, Britain's established parties refused to take the UK Independence Party - or UKIP - seriously. But strong performances in recent by-elections have proven even a small party can create major waves in Britain's electoral system. Since the Liberal Democrats have entered government, UKIP is the number one protest party in Britain. The Conservatives in particular stand to lose votes to the right-wing party. Prime Minister David Cameron has looked increasingly uncomfortable as opinion polls show UKIP with double-digit popularity ratings. The eurosceptic party was founded over twenty years ago, in protest against the Maastricht Treaty. Now with fresh wind in its sails, UKIP is giving the other parties a run for their money.
    AUSTRIA: THE LONG ROAD TO CITIZENSHIP - The rules on gaining Austrian citizenship are among the toughest in Europe. Anyone wanting to become Austrian, for example, needs to speak good German and engage in voluntary work. Austrian citizenship will in future be awarded on an applicant's level of integration into society as well as how long a person has lived in the country. Those who are particularly well-integrated and sign up, for example, as a volunteer firefighter, will be eligible for citizenship after six years instead of the standard ten years. People on low incomes, on the other hand - such as part-time workers or single parents - do not fair so well under the new legislation.
    UKRAINE: SUBTERRANEAN SANATORIUM - The Ukrainian province of Donetsk is one of the largest salt mining regions in the world. But that's not all. It also boasts a unique underground sanatorium for people with asthma and other lung complaints. The sanatorium is basically made up of salt caves. Patients move in for weeks at a time. The caves are 300 meters below ground. Patients are only allowed to leave and go out into the daylight twice a day. The temperature in the caves is pretty low, so it's important to keep active. Soccer has become particularly popular among patients!

    Pacific Heartbeat [#203H] Let's Play Music! Slack Key with Cyril Pahinui and Friends In this intimate backyard performance, master slack key musician Cyril Pahinui (featured in last season's "Waimea 'Ukulele and Slack Key Guitar") jams with some of the most talented musicians in Hawaii. The Oscar-winning film The Descendantsprominently featured the music of Cyril's father, Gabby "Pop" Pahinui, considered the "Godfather" of Hawaiian slack key guitar. duration 56:46   STEREO TVG

    Saving The Ocean [#103H] Destination Baja A remarkable success story of how local fishing people developed a whale-watching co-op that now caters to tourists from all over the world. The co-op runs not only the tourist accommodations, but also polices the lagoon, regulates access to the whales, and preserves most of the area as a quiet sanctuary for the whales and their calves. And it's not just whales -- there are now several other highly successful, self-regulated fishing co-ops along Baja's Pacific coast. duration 26:46   STEREO TVG

    Nature [#2903H] Jungle Eagle The most powerful raptor in the world, the harpy eagle, hides away deep in the South American jungle. Harpy eagles are barely ever seen, let alone filmed. In this extraordinary documentary, our team of cameramen steps into the world of this monkey-eating eagle and even risks injury to obtain intimate pictures of them bringing back large monkeys to the nest. The tables soon turn, however, as one of these massive birds starts following the team. duration 55:46   SRND51 TVG (Secondary audio: DVI)
