The documentary series that presents an inside view on management and industry. A Very Able Man
Michel Gillibert was a young, highly successful businessman until a helicopter crash in 1979 left him permanently disabled. Now as France's Minister for
Disabled People he is an active campaigner, coming into conflict with French employers over a new quota system that forces them to employ disabled people or pay a tax. Gillibert argues that employers' natural philanthropy must be encouraged by the rule of the law - and he wants to see such laws enforced across Europe. Producer David Dawson-Pick

Seeds of Plenty, Seeds of Sorrow
Widely regarded as one of the most successful development strategies of the century, the Green Revolution was a systematic attempt to replace indigenous farming practices with new techniques developed by western scientists. Nobel laureate Norman Borlaug , father of the initiative, claimed that it had "displaced despair with hope, food shortages with over-flowing granaries, and famine with food abundance".
In this documentary, director Manjira Datta explores the more problematic side of the initiative. She shows that in India the Green Revolution has helped create a new class of landless peasant, and the initial dramatic crop yields have given way to pesticide poisoning and short-lived miracle wheat strains.
