Don’t Panic: How to End Poverty in 15 Years

Synopsis
Television documentary. In the week the United Nations presented its new goals for global development, the programme looks at the number one goal for the world: eradicating extreme poverty - the condition of almost a billion people, currently measured as those living on less than $1.25 a day. Statistician Professor Hans Rosling uses holographic projection technology to present bubble graphs and income mountains to present an upbeat assessment of the ability to achieve that goal by 2030.
