Making Contact

Making Contact – Fighting Goliath (Part 1)

The Canadian Tar Sands is the largest industrial project on earth. And the potential environmental consequences have brought together citizens from across borders, to fight its rippling effects.  On this two part special, we experience the growing resistance to the tarsands. Fighting Goliath… produced by Barbara Bernstein.
