Wildfire!
Produced by: Sharon Mascall
With thousands of sheep and cattle burned alive this year, hundreds of houses destroyed and a number of human deaths, Australia is pouring millions of Australian dollars into wildfire research and many other countries are turning to Australia for advice and help. Are these fires malicious? Part of the complex system of global warming? Just natural phenomena that will die down again? Producer Sharon Mascall puts on fireman's helmet and overalls and heads for the Australian Bush where the frequency and intensity of wildfires seems to be increasing. This program is part of our international documentary exchange series, Crossing Boundaries.
