"RX FOR SURVIVAL" (Series) Delivering the Goods (Episode) WGBH/NOVA for PBS air in November 05.

How do we overcome these barriers and build effective, sustainable delivery systems? Shooting HD in Bangladesh, Thailand, Gambia, and Chad.

"THE LIVING MACHINE" for National Geographic via Sea Studios, whisked the "A" team around (and around) the world on a new series featuring surprising interrelationships in our densely interwoven world.
