Africa's Children [electronic resource]: Kenyan Women in Transition

This program explores the pressures on female adolescents in the Third World through the stories of four young Kenyan women growing up in a time of cultural upheaval: Christine, a Masai who escaped an arranged marriage so she could study law; Dekha, brought up in a rigidly patriarchal Muslim town, who aspires to be a doctor; Anastasia, who works on her family's farm while yearning to become a Catholic nun; and Mboone, who dreams of exchanging her affluent urban lifestyle for a career of service in the UN, to help improve the lives of women all over the world. Female circumcision, polygyny, AIDS, reproductive choice, equal access to education, and other issues are discussed with candor.

Where Have All the Elephants Gone? [electronic resource]: Poaching in Tanzania and Kenya

In Tanzania it's estimated that more than 60 elephants are killed by poachers every day, the ivory from the tusks smuggled out of Dar es Salaam and sent off to markets in places like China, where a demand for ivory trinkets has exploded among the new middle class. Both Tanzania and Kenya vow to stamp out poaching, but enormous profits from the slaughter have corrupted politicians and law enforcement officials alike. This program charts the rapid decline of the African elephant as it investigates the illegal ivory trade that's doing them in. Viewers trek from Tanzania's sanctioned wildlife hunts to the seedy underworld of the poachers' black market, then go to an elephant sanctuary, where wildlife advocate Daphne Sheldrick sadly predicts the imminent extinction of these animals in the wild.
