BRAZIL: THE JUDGE MARKED FOR DEATH
Brazil is the second largest market for cocaine in the Americas and a major transit country for illegal drugs heading for Europe. The drugs bring with them a tide of violence and crime -- but one man has decided to take a stand.
INDIA'S DISAPPEARING DAUGHTERS
An epidemic is wiping out India's daughters. It's not a disease or famine -- it's parents deciding not to have baby girls. This disturbing trend is not new but modern science is enabling it, with disastrous results for India's future.
GUYANA: THE GOLD RUSH
Gold has been sought after since the beginning of human history. In these troubled times, it is seen as a safe investment. But as demand for this treasured metal grows, so too do its dangers to miners and the environment.
Host: Daljit Dhaliwal.
