Developing Stories, Series 1:Environment and Development Series
And the Dish Ran Away with the Spoon

Television in the Caribbean dominated by US and French programs.


A printer-friendly version of this page 49 minutes
Directed by Christopher Laird and Anthony Hall
Produced by Banyan Limited/BBC



A fascinating documentary from Trinidad and Tobago about the domination of Caribbean television by programs from the North, primarily the US. This film ambitiously weaves together interviews, indigenous poetry and music with clips from imported French and US television programs to show how Caribbean viewers receive a distorted view of the world that alienates them from their own cultural heritage. Also included is a glimpse of how Cuba has tackled the problem and the US response in the form of Radio Marti.

Other titles in the series are:

Lucia - The cost of an oil spill to a fishing village.

Seeds of Plenty, Seeds of Sorrow - The darker side of the Green Revolution.

Rabi - Modern day fable on family values from Africa.

Life and Debt - The murder of street children in Rio de Janeiro.

Suspended Dreams - The lasting effects of the civil war in Lebanon.
