GUATEMALA: UNEARTHING THE CRIMES OF THE PAST
More than 200,000 people were killed or disappeared during the civil war which raged in Guatemala for more than three decades at the end of the 20th century. To this day, people in that Central American country are searching for their loved ones, and are being helped by a dedicated band of forensic anthropologists.
BURUNDI: STRUGGLING TO BE FREE
The central African nation of Burundi is recovering from a 13-year civil war -- a war that left many children poor, orphaned and having to raise children themselves. Now the story of a young woman who became a victim three times...and who is now fighting the justice system in her country.
SAVING BLACK SEA DOLPHINS WITH SOUND
The Black Sea borders several countries in South Eastern Europe, including Russia and Turkey. It is home to a wealth of beautiful marine life...like dolphins. Once the waters teemed with them, now they are on the verge of extinction as they compete with man for limited resources. Attempts are now being made to save them, but could it be too late?
