Since measurements began in the 1950s, scientists have discovered that there has been a decline of sunlight reaching the Earth; they called it global dimming. But according to a paper published in the journal of Science, the dimming did not continue into the 1990s and indeed since the 1980s scientists have observed a widespread brightening. What caused the dimming to go down and what effect will it have, if any, on climate change? The film explores the theory that pollution is shielding the oceans from the full power of the Sun, and disrupting the pattern of the world-s rainfall. There is evidence that dimming caused the droughts in sub-Saharan Africa which claimed hundreds of thousands of lives in the 1970s and 1980s. It reveals that we may have grossly underestimated the speed at which our climate is changing. At its heart is a deadly new phenomenon. One that until very recently scientists refused to believe even existed. Alarmingly, the dimming continues today, and Asia, home to half the world-s population is currently under threat.

The fate of prisoners of war and missing in action is one of the darkest chapters of the Cold War. Tens of thousands of American soldiers European survivors were sent to unknown destinations during World War II, the Korean War, and the Vietnam War.

American soldiers captured in the Cold War – the enemy needs them as hostages and bargaining counters. Their own government denies their existence, leaving them to their fate.

Some escape and find their way home.  Others die in captivity – expecting the whole time that their government will “leave no Soldier behind” and rescue them.  Given the last century of American empire, this film is a shameful account of US government coverups, denials, and mishandling of POW situation.  The Red Cross has also been complicit – hiding records of prisoners of war to this day.
