Subject: [Videolib] Help with environment and nutrition films

I have a biology instructor who loves using Diet for a New America
(1994) in his classes but he was hoping to find something newer. Does
anyone know of another film along those same lines (more nutrition, less
vegetarianism) with a more recent copyright? Also, he is looking for an
"empowering, call to action" film dealing with the environment, global
warming, wetlands, etc. My trouble is I am finding tons to weed
through, does anyone have one or two to recommend?


Both film cannot be too long - 45-50 minutes max.

VIDEOLIB is intended to encourage the broad and lively discussion of issues relating to the selection, evaluation, acquisition,bibliographic control, preservation, and use of current and evolving video formats in libraries and related institutions. It is hoped that the list will serve as an effective working tool for video librarians, as well as a channel of communication between libraries,educational institutions, and video producers and distributors.
