Wildlife film maker Rebecca Hosking investigates how to transform her family’s farm in Devon into a low energy farm for the future, and discovers that nature holds the key.

With her father close to retirement, Rebecca returns to her family’s wildlife-friendly farm in Devon, to become the next generation to farm the land. But last year’s high fuel prices were a wake-up call for Rebecca. Realising that all food production in the UK is completely dependent on abundant cheap fossil fuel, particularly oil, she sets out to discover just how secure this oil supply is.

Alarmed by the answers, she explores ways of farming without using fossil fuel. With the help of pioneering farmers and growers, Rebecca learns that it is actually nature that holds the key to farming in a low-energy future. More at bbc.co.uk

Afghan Massacre: The Convoy of Death (earlier title: Massacre at Mazar) is a 2002 documentary by Irish filmmaker Jamie Doran and Afghan journalist Najibullah Quraishi about alleged war crimes committed by Afghan Northern Alliance troops under General Abdul Rashid Dostum against Taliban fighters.  The Taliban fighters, who had surrendered to Dostum’s troops after the November 2001 siege of Kunduz, were transported to Sheberghan prison in sealed containers. Human rights groups estimate that hundreds or thousands of them died during and after transit.  Afghan Massacre: The Convoy of Death presents testimony from interviewees stating that American military personnel were present at and complicit in some of the mass killings, known as the Dasht-i-Leili massacre.

A short early version of the documentary was shown to the European and German Parliaments in June 2002, causing widespread concern in Europe.  Against protests from the United States government, the completed documentary was shown later that year on many countries’ national television channels, including German, British, Italian and Australian television. The program was not screened in the U.S. and received no U.S. media coverage.  A Newsweek report in August 2002, based on a leaked UN memo, did confirm some of the details in Doran’s documentary, as well as the presence of mass graves in the Dasht-i-Leili desert, but made no mention of the documentary.

In July 2009, Barack Obama, the president of the United States, ordered a probe into allegations that the Bush administration had resisted efforts to have the massacre investigated.

    Libya, Iran, Irak, Syria, North Korea, Sudan, were all outside the international central bank system. Now it’s just Iran, Syria, North Korea and Sudan

    The common denominator for the base lies we are told is written above by two others so far. No world bank control over their currencies and debts. They lied about the reasons for invading Iraq and Afghanistan, and you would be foolish to believe anything they claim for the others.

    When we were young we learned, or should have learned, not to take the word of your ‘friends’ once you find out they lie to you. Why do most of you not do the same toward politicians?

    Why is it when anyone fails at their job, they get fired, but when politicians fail it is war and they keep their job?
