Planet Neighborhood Series

Green technology and innovative design save energy.

A printer-friendly version of this page 56 minutes
Closed Captioned

Directed by Jeffrey Bieber
A Production of WETA-TV Washington DC, Executive Producer Richard Thomas, Produced by Larry Klein

Homeowners, architects, builders and an inventor utilize green technologies and innovative design in the construction of new homes and the retrofitting of the old; while residents of one small town show how simple it is to incorporate composting into daily living.

We journey from Plymouth, Mass., where a high-tech "house doctor" is helping one family retrofit a drafty, energy-draining older home, to Austin, Texas, where architects and builders are joining forces to create a series of brand new "green" homes. Also on tap is a visit with "superwindow" creator Roy Gordon and a tour of Bellport, Long Island, whose citizens have become fanatical composters in an attempt to resolve a mounting garbage crisis.

Other titles in the series are:

Work - Sound office building design, car recycling and waste water disposal.

Community - Good community design and natural wastewater treatment.
