Adoption: Whose Needs Come First? Nicola Jennings was adopted as a baby 30 years ago. In this personal film, she challenges the assumptions behind the new trend for so-called "open adoption", which encourages continuing contact between adoptive families and birth families. She puts the case that the silent majority of adopted people like herself who don't wish to search for their birth parents are regarded as "deviant" and not consulted.

Dodging Doomsday
The population of the world is growing faster now than at any other time in history: the UN projects that it will double in 60 years. Any other animal community which grows at an unprecedented rate will crash spectacularly when it exceeds the "carrying capacity" of its environment - it will run out of food and destroy its life support systems. When will the human population reach the carrying capacity of its planet, and will life be worth living when it does? Producer Bettina Lemer Editor Jana Bennett
