9. Histories Hidden Engine - 90 mins (in 6 parts)
A curious research documentary, making links between patterns in nature, and social and economic trends. At first it talks about social moods, trends in movies and the stock market. The subsequent focus on stock market trends seems a little overkill, but the link to nature and nature's patterns makes social moods seem more predictable.
5. Drop into the Ocean - 10 mins
From Greenpeace comes a visually stunning promotion of the concept of Sea Reserves, where we can protect the ocean from exploitation and save it for future generations.

4. Alternative Economics - 39 mins
Want to see where in the world complimentary currencies have been established and are functioning sucessfully? This film made me punch the air with affirmation that we, the people, do not have to surrender to the madness of the banking system we have grown to assume is "just the way it is."
5. Hong Kong - 10 mins
A short but uplifting story about a cooperative business which recycles basic goods through a number of community owned shops, and thereby making them available to people who might not otherwise be able to afford them.
10. Elisabet Sahtouris - approx 60 mins
A lengthy presentation from a evolutionary biologist, who makes it possible to grasp some difficult but liberating concepts.
11. Iraq Iran - USD or Euro - 45 mins
A deeper look at the motives behind the conflict behind the War against Iraq. Simon Reeve from The Dossier, a UK documentary maker, travelled to the US to interview key figures and journalists. A worthy watch if you need to better understand the issues which are not often addressed.
