Very short notice sorry. It was just brought to my attention that the ABC is repeating a Four Corners show they played last Monday. It is on plastics in the oceans and is it going anywhere? Quite interesting. For those that missed it and would like to see it here is another chance. (Although it can been seen on view at any time).
Four Corners Program – on ABC 24 Saturday, tonight, at 8pm, and on iview – is airing a program on Oceans of Plastic, by French filmmaker Vincent Perazio and presented by Sarah Ferguson.
Four Corners brings you this thought provoking story from French filmmaker Vincent Perazio in which he examines the work of these scientists investigating our plastic waste.
Some are undertaking research to see if plastic is making its way into the food chain, others are looking into the impact on marine life and the environment.
“It’s not worth throwing away plastic bags. You should just season them well and eat them directly because they’re going to end up back on your plate in one way or another.” Marine Scientist
“Once there is so much plastic in the seas, there is nothing to eat for the filter feeders, for the fish, for the whales.” Oceanographer
The program asks confronting questions about whether or not we need to change the way we deal with the plastics we throw away.
