1988 - 2001: The Long Shadow of War
The devastating effect of continuous war and destruction has marked the life of the Afghan people during the last decades. Millions of people flee their homes and cities, come back, try to rebuild and are forced to flee again. In their efforts to find peace and normality they are assisted by indefatigable workers of the UN and its agencies: UNHCR, UNICEF, WFP, Habitat and others, who help to provide shelter and food, technical advice and education, mine clearing programmes, health care and, above all, hope. The eighteen segments of this documentary-magazine contain stunning footage of the ruined cities of Kabul, Jalalabad, Herat or Mazar. We learn about the barber who sets up his "salon" in the refugee camp, the barley farmer who loses his crop to locusts in Mazar, the girl who lost a leg stepping on a landmine, the war widow who earns a small income in a UN sponsored bakery in Kabul, and much more.

to the Teeth
As the world enters a new millennium, the human race begins the next thousand years armed to the teeth. At the dawn of the 20th Century, casualties from weapons were confined mostly to wars, with roughly 5 percent of war casualties among civilians. In the year 2000 however, there is an estimated one small weapon for every 10 human beings on the planet. Small arms respect no borders or political ideologies. With the end of the Cold War, armed combat has assumed new forms, with civilians caught in the crossfire from U.S. urban housing developments to the mountains of Colombia or the streets of South Africa. United Nations Television presents a comprehensive look at the proliferation of weapons around the world and their devastating affect on society. From the lucrative business of weapons production and weapons smuggling to the black-market for arms that has exploded since the end of the Cold War, this documentary also examines the variety of ways that people are confronting the small arms crisis world-wide, in order to educate and empower people to think globally and act locally on this important issue.

Cyber-Tale of Three Cities
Everyone Everywhere: The Making of the Universal Declaration of Human
Although all too often not always lived up to, the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights sets the standards against which all societies are now measures. For EVERYONE Everywhere shows how human rights became a global issue after millions had perished in the Second World War simply because of their race or religious beliefs. And how an international coalition of diplomats, jurists and intellectuals, led by the charismatic Eleanor Roosevelt, rushed to have the Universal Declaration of Human Rights signed just before the Cold War froze solid. In this documentary special the camera follows Amnesty International's former chief, Thomas Hammarberg, as he treks through Cambodia to free two young women who have been reaped by soldiers and we meet villagers in Uganda who are now free enough to revel the atrocities of Idi Amin's despotic rule. For EVERYONE Everywhere was filmed on four continents and is hosted and narrated by Harrison Ford. Dozens of rare interviews and a treasure of archives, hidden for 50 years, are revealed for the first time. This documentary is a celebration of one of the most noble ideals of humankind.
Legacies of War
Dealing with the aftermath of war is a problem as difficult as warfare itself. Because a war is formally over, it does not mean that the effects of it have ceased. Civilians are therefore left to face harsh consequences like the menace of landmines or unexploded bombs; the results from lengthy conflicts are destruction of normal society and deep psychological trauma. This documentary examines efforts to support struggling civilians in the long aftermath of war, from German families living with live buried bombs left from World War II to Mozambican farmers who years after peace was declared still cannot work the land because of landmines ... to Guatemalans from both sides of their country's 36-year old civil war who have started their lives over in a wholly reconstructed society ... to the refugees of Bosnia and Kosovo who have lost relatives in shocking circumstances and have themselves suffered mentally-scarring experiences ... to the child-soliders of African wars whose lives are indelibly marked by being forced to become armed killers.

Secrets in the Sand
A killer that is so tiny it cannot be seen with the naked eye. Biological Weapons, one of the most terrifying forms of modern warfare, are incredibly difficult to detect, defend against or eliminate, yet alarmingly easy to create and use. Presenting never-before-seen footage, Secrets in the Sand follows a United Nations multinational team of inspectors deep into the remote deserts of Iraq, as they search for, and find, traces of a biological weapons programme. The United Nations Special Commission (UNSCOM) has set up the most comprehensive monitoring system in the world to make sure that Iraq does not resume production of the deadliest of all weapons of mass destruction.

United Nations Secretary-General Kofi Annan: The Nobel Lecture, 10 December 2001
2001 brought both the best and the worst that humanity can produce. Today, the United Nations is at the forefront of efforts to achieve peace and security in the world, and of the international mobilization aimed at meeting the world's economic, social and environmental challenges. This video reviews the major achievements of the UN and its staff in 2001 and the most significant events that took place around the world. As the world confronts new challenges, old ones remain the fight against poverty, ignorance and racism, which are the roots of global violence. The September attacks on the World Trade Center underline the UN's central role in the campaign to combat terrorism. The video features contributions from world statesmen on the importance of the UN to formulate policies on humanitarian assistance, economic development and poverty alleviation. The Special Session of the General Assembly held in June 2001 on HIV/AIDS is recalled as one of the highlights of the UN's efforts to fight the disease. The video concludes with the ceremony in Oslo on 10 December 2001 at which Secretary-General Kofi Annan and the United Nations staff were awarded the 100th Nobel Peace Prize for their continuous dedicated work to fight poverty, promote democracy and defend human rights.

Year in Review
The Year 2000 - a chance for the world to take stock and adopt new priorities for the future. It was a year of the United Nations Millennium Summit, with the largest gathering in history of world leaders, who addressed the special challenges of the twenty-first century. Throughout the world the UN was called upon to help maintain peace and encourage development. The Organization found a new role at a critical stage of the ongoing Middle East conflict, and continued its stewardship of troubled territories like Kosovo and East Timor. Human Rights abuses were vigilantly monitored, and armed conflicts -- especially in Africa -- prompted an increased commitment from the world community. The UN peacekeeping forces in Sierra Leone were substantially bolstered; also a whole new mission was established on the disputed Ethiopia-Eritrea border. YEAR IN REVIEW captures these and other highlights of world-wide work of the United Nations in the year 2000, including increased efforts to halt the spread of AIDS, and the harnessing of computer technology to assist global development.
