Lost Children [electronic resource]: Uganda's Youngest Soldiers

During its campaign of terror in northern Uganda, the Lord's Resistance Army has abducted thousands of children of the Acholi tribe and forced them to kill among their own people. This powerful, award-winning documentary examines the tragic aftermath of a brutal practice by following the lives of two boys and two girls between the ages of 8 and 14 who escape their captors. Their plight is seen in gritty detail; after years of witnessing and sometimes committing atrocities, the children return to their villages, mistrusted and often branded "killers" by their own families. The children are helped by social workers in their transition back to peace, but for many there is no going home.

Man-Eaters [electronic resource]: Dangerous Encounters

Take an adventure with Dr. Brady Barr as he travels back to Uganda in search of a giant man-eating crocodile. This episode takes place on the Nile River in Murchison Falls National Park, where we'll find out just what it takes to capture crocodiles while Dr. Barr trains a team of rangers from the Uganda Wildlife Authority. Then it's on to the shores of Lake Victoria, where a massive, one-ton crocodile has been terrorizing villagers. Barr and the rangers will set out on the lake in the same dugout canoes used by fisherman-dugout canoes that are known to have been capsized by a giant crocodile. Their mission: to find and capture the man-eater before it kills again.
