End of the Rainbow [electronic resource]

In 2005, the Republic of Guinea sold its interest in one of the richest gold fields in the world to an Anglo-Canadian combine. Mining equipment in Borneo was dismantled and reassembled in West Africa, causing massive upheavals to a traditional way of life-some that eventually benefited local communities, but most to the advantage of the corporation and Guinea's ruling elite. This program documents the transfer of the mine, providing an unusually balanced look at the impact of industrialization on resident populations and their economy, traditions, and environment.
