Planet in Peril CNN Special October 19, 2007

Ordinarily, I am not a fan of television but the previews of the upcoming CNN special, Planet in Peril, sound like this is a special worth watching. The website has additional previews as well as student curriculum ideas.

“CNN takes viewers around the world in a two-part, four-hour documentary that examines our changing planet. This worldwide investigation, shot in high definition, looks at four key issues: climate change, vanishing habitats, disappearing species and human population growth.

To tell this story, Anderson Cooper, Dr. Sanjay Gupta and Animal Planet’s Jeff Corwin traveled to some of the most remote and remarkable places on Earth. From exposing illegal wildlife trading undercover in Southeast Asia to seeing first–hand the devastating effects of deforestation in Brazil, they have gathered evidence on the unsettling changes taking place all around us.

Planet in Peril premieres October 23 and 24 at 9 p.m. ET. If you live outside the United States, tune in at 1300 or 1900 GMT on October 24 and 25 to watch this important documentary on CNN International.”
