Which Way is the Front Line from Here? (2013)

The Life and Time of Tim Hetherington

Documentary about deceased photojournalist Tim Hetherington directed by Sebastian Junger. Together with his friend and long-term collaborator Sebastian, Tim had travelled the world documenting conflicts in Afghanistan, Liberia and Libya among other locations. Best known for their 2010 film ‘Restrepo’ which was nominated for an Academy Award, the two strived to capture the humanity within conflict situations and with their images they focused on the individuals involved and their experiences of the violence surrounding them. Unfortunately, in 2011 Tim was killed by a mortar blast and this film is a tribute and celebration of the legacy he has left behind and includes Sebastian conducting interviews with those who knew Tim best.

The Men Who Made Us Thin (2013)

Jacques Peretti investigates the connections between obesity and weight loss, confronting some of the men making a fortune from our desire to become thin

Episode 1

As obesity escalates, the diet business is booming. In this four-part series, Jacques Peretti investigates the connections between obesity and weight loss, and confronts some of the men making a fortune from our desire to become thin.

Jacques examines the scientific reasons why so many diets fail long term and why – in spite of this failure – we go back to them again and again. He also speaks to a former director of Weight Watchers and meets other industry leaders, including Slimfast billionaire Danny Abrahams and Pierre Dukan, of the Dukan diet.

Episode 2

In the second of this four-part series, Jacques Peretti charts the story of the fitness industry and examines the links between exercise and weight loss. He speaks to the former Global Head of Health at PepsiCo and asks why the food industry puts so much money into promoting exercise.

Peretti also examines some of the pharmaceutical solutions available for weight-loss as he tells the story of the race to find a safe and effective pill to make us thin.

Episode 3

Jacques Peretti continues his examination of the weight-loss industry and discovers how the World Health Organisation’s recognition of obesity as an epidemic provided millions of new customers for the industry. He also explores some of the latest developments in bariatric surgery and asks how far these trends will go.

Episode 4

In the final instalment of this four-part series, Jacques Peretti asks why the world’s population continues to get fatter, despite the fact that billions are spent on weight loss every year. He travels to America to investigate the parallels between food companies and the tobacco industry and meets the activists battling to introduce laws to tax fatty and sugary foods – and facing fierce resistance from industry.

Svet stav (2014)

Športne stave so dobičkonosen posel s katerim se ukvarjajo milijoni. Ilegalne in zasebne spletne stavnice so povzročile revolucijo v prirejanju stav in pritegnile stavce iz vsega sveta. Veliki zaslužki so premamili tudi kriminalne organizacije – stavne sindikate, ki služijo s prirejanjem izidov in stavnih trgov ter postajajo največje zlo modernega športa. Vedno več je primerov, športov in držav, kjer so preiskave že prinesle obsodbe, tudi v Sloveniji smo obravnavali nedovoljeno prirejanje stav in prirejanje izidov zaradi zaslužkov na stavnicah.

Giftige Geschäfte (2013)

Pro Jahr werden in den Industrieländern rund 50 Millionen Tonnen Elektroschrott entsorgt, darunter Computer, Fernseher, Handys und Haushaltsgeräte. 75 Prozent davon kommen nie in den offiziellen Recycling-Anlagen an, oft werden sie illegal nach Indien, China oder Afrika verschifft. Der illegale Export von Elektroschrott ist ein Millionengeschäft, das die Umwelt sowie das Leben und die Gesundheit vieler Menschen zerstört.

Der Dokumentarfilm nimmt den Zuschauer mit auf eine Reise durch Europa, nach China, Afrika und in die USA, und zeigt, wie das europäische Recycling-System an mangelnden Kontrollen, Geldgier und Korruption krankt und die illegalen Exporte nährt; wie in den Häfen von Europa und Asien vergeblich gegen die Flut von Elektroschrotts angekämpft wird, die täglich die Meere überquert; wie ganze Städte in China regelrecht in unseren alten Geräten ertrinken, die dort ohne jeglichen Gedanken an die Umwelt oder zukünftige Generationen entsorgt werden.

Eine besorgniserregende Konsequenz davon ist, dass wiederaufbereitete und beschädigte Computerchips wieder in den Produktionskreislauf geraten und in Geräte eingebaut werden, die wichtige Bereiche unseres Alltags bestimmen, wie zum Beispiel öffentliche Verkehrsmittel, und dort unsere Sicherheit bedrohen. Können wir die giftige Lawine noch rechtzeitig aufhalten?

Generation Like (2014)

Today, with the help of social media, teens are able to interact directly with their culture — artists, celebrities, movies, brands and even one another — in ways never before possible.

Frontline correspondent Douglas Rushkoff  explores how the teen quest for identity and connection has migrated to social media — and exposes the game of cat-and-mouse that corporations are playing with these young consumers. It’s an evolving and complicated relationship between teens and the companies that are working hard to target them.

Teen use of social media sometimes includes attempts to attract attention by sharing instances of outrageous, provocative, or dangerous behavior. Therefore, Generation Like includes moments that involve potentially offensive language and sexually suggestive behavior and language.
