Radioactive material from the Sellafield nuclear plant in the UK has been detected in Norwegian waters. The Sellafield plant was built over fifty years ago by the British government to produce electricity and plutonium for the making of atomic bombs. Now it has reconverted into a nuclear waste processing plant, but security is still not guaranteed and fires, leakage and accidental toxic discharge have occurred over the years.

With its complex maze of fjords, islands and channels, Aisen, in Patagonia is a beautiful but inhospitable area. It was opened up to settlement in the 1980s with the construction of the Southern Highway. Together with plots of land allocated to would-be settlers from all over Chile, the highway was part of a colonisation policy aimed at improving the country's access to the sea and its resources, as well as asserting its sovereignty in border disputes with neighbouring Argentina.

As part of the Future Makers series, ABC1 presents this revolutionary documentary touted as the follow-up film to Al Gore's An Inconvenient Truth. Already making waves in environmental circles, The Burning Season is a story of contribution and hope; one that offers a solution to the frightening issue of global warming. Every year, there is a burning season in Indonesia. Rainforests are cut down and burnt every hour to clear land for crops such as palm oil, making Indonesia the third largest producer of carbon emissions in the world. Indonesian palm oil farmer Achmadi confronts the impact of his deliberately lit fires on climate change: what is he to do when this is the only income he knows?
