Clayoquot Sound: The Final Cut?

Synopsis
Clayoquot Sound is an area of temperate rain forest on Vancouver Island off the west coast of British Columbia and known as a biodiversity hotspot. The high percentage of the forest that has been logged, the logging techniques used, and government pro-logging policy are all causing concern to environmentalists and the local indigenous people alike. The programme looks at conflicts of interest at local, regional and global levels by focusing on the world of environmental non-governmental organisations, which have set out some of their views on the environmental problems of the area and explain some of the ways in which they have tried to influence environmental policy.

Notes
NB. As of May 2016 Open University Worldwide are no longer distributing DVDs. They have posted this message on their website: ‘Unfortunately Open University Worldwide Limited has decided that product sales are no longer viable given the reduced funding to Higher Education institutions and diminishing demand for the products we have traditionally stocked. At present the Open University Students Association (OUSA) will continue to sell the "Good Study Guide", and we are in discussion with other possible distributors to continue to make The Open University’s products available for purchase. As soon as we have any information on other channels of distribution we will update this notice’. Some products are still available via second hand dealers on Amazon.co.uk
