    任何公司只要透過美國的伺服器,如谷歌以美元支付貨品或發送電郵均有機會觸犯美國的反貪條例,受到美國法院制裁,不管他們的商業行為在自己的國家是完全合法。美國聲稱,貪腐傷害每一個人,他們的行動是要維持良好的商業操守。但有人認為這種反貪腐行動,實質是美國欲削弱外國公司的競爭力和獲得有價值的商業資料,以及增加國庫收入的手段。紀錄片將透過幾間法國的公司如何觸犯美國法例,以至被當局罰款,揭示美國的反貪條例背後的動機。

    Any company that makes payments in dollars or send emails that pass through a US server like google can be sanctioned in American courts if they break American anti-corruption law. It doesn’t matter if their actions are perfectly legal in their own country. America claims that corruption hurts everyone and that their actions promote good business practice. But this anti-corruption crusade is also undeniably a way of weakening or eliminating foreign compétition, gaining valuable commercial information and funding the US treasury.

     

    When Technip paid a kickback to the President of Nigeria to secure a contract in 1995, this form of business practice was still legal in France. In contrast, in America it was illegal. And 15 years later, Technip was fined an unprecedented $338 million. Not co-operating would have incurred even more severe consequences. In recent years, multiple foreign companies have paid hundreds of millions in fines to the US government.?

      Inside the Storm takes an investigative and forensic approach to the failure of four major businesses, examining exactly how each business went bust and the reasons why. With probing journalism, this revealing series will not only re-tell the major events leading up to the death of Kodak, Lehman Brothers and Barings Bank, but also provide a unique insight into the real reasons behind their collapse. 
      Each business failed for a different reason; be it fraudulent activity, criminality, a refusal to change with the times or bloated egos. Using news archive, exclusive interviews, movie clips and compelling graphics, we uncover new details about the personalities, economic forces and decisions involved in the collapse of these well-known companies. We hear from the people directly involved, as well as expert academics, journalists and liquidators.
      Barings Bank
      Britain's oldest bank, Barings Brothers had a reputation for security - but in 1995, it became an emblem of scandal. Inside The Storm: Lessons from the Boardroom gets the inside story from Nick Lessons, the man who lost over a billion dollars and sent shockwaves through the world of banking.

      Kodak was, one of the giants of its era. At its peak Kodak controlled about 80 percent of the film market in the United States, which is the world's largest photography market. Its name was synonymous with photography. But the world was moving fast. A digital technology revolution was sweeping across the globe and destroyed Kodak’s valuable business of selling photographic film - once worth billions. Kodak went from being the world’s leader in photography to being a broken company in little over a decade. What are the real reasons behind the downfall of Kodak?

      食慾薰心:毀林棕櫚油

      棕櫚油業染指之地遍及全球,當中很多地方極具價值、生態多樣。每年有四千萬噸棕櫚油出產,出現在半數包裝食品內。由喀麥隆走到危地馬拉和哥倫比亞,本紀錄片調查棕櫚油業興起的原因、以及其高速增長所帶來的社會和環境影響。近年棕櫚油佔據環境新聞版面,報導圍繞砍伐森林和單一種植的害處。米高.杜根出發調查這些報導的真實性。喀麥隆種植棕櫚油已近兩個世紀,種植園地大小保持不變,大致上保留了小型家庭式經營方式;當地社區圍繞著園地發展,出產棕櫚油所得的財富則用來支持醫院和學校營運。但在危地馬拉的情況則完全不一樣:當地的瑪雅人被迫將土地賣給棕櫚油公司,如果反抗就會被誣衊為恐怖份子。此部紀錄片製作嚴謹,質疑棕櫚油是否真的是天賜的禮物?

      Money World 3 - Appetite for Destruction: The Palm Oil Diaries

      The palm oil industry has papered over vast swathes of the planet, much of it valuable and ecologically diverse. Forty million tonnes are produced annually, and it can be found in 50% of all packaged foods. Travelling from Cameroon, to Guatemala, to Colombia the doc investigates what has catalysed this new industry and the social and environmental impact of its exponential growth. Palm oil has dominated the environmental press in recent years, amid claims of deforestation and the detrimental effects of monoculture. Michael Dorgan set out to investigate these claims. In Cameroon, where palm oil has been cultivated for almost two centuries, the palm plantations have stayed consistent in size, and remain largely small scale family operations. The community revolves around the plantation, and the wealth it generates supports hospitals and schools. But in Guatemala it’s a very different story. The local Mayan population are forced into selling their land to the palm companies, and branded terrorists if they resist. This crafted doc questions whether palm oil is quite the Godsend that many initially thought it was?

    • 二手衫的秘密之旅

      二手衫的秘密之旅

      每年我們把數千噸的棄置衣物/舊衣物捐到慈善商店。但這些舊衣物的下場如何?原來大部分舊衣物都不曾放到慈善商店的貨架,而是被送到非洲。雖然我們將衣物免費送出,但這些我們放棄的衣物卻造就了價值數百萬美元的工業,而某些世上最窮的人會花大筆金錢去購買。

      在這套揭露實況的影片,殘奧運動員艾迪・艾代皮登會向我們講述這些舊衣服會有何有趣的遭遇。他首先去到入口最多二手衫的加納。每星期加納會接收一千噸我們的舊衣物。艾迪跟在這裏靠二手衫維持生計的人見面,這些人包括批發商、市集商人,還有可以在一日內賺取(當地人)超過一年人工的進口商人。

      但不是所有人都因為這些二手衫而得益。西方的廉價服裝在市面上泛濫,令當地紡織業差不多消失殆盡。艾迪到訪其中一家僅存的布料工廠,發覺他們正掙扎求存。我們的二手衫不單令職位減少,還對加納的文化造成影響。西式服裝迅速取代西非的特別圖案和傳統服飾。艾迪去到偏僻村落,發現所有人都穿著英國的高檔品牌。預備好你的心情,看看你的衣服那段不為人知的旅程。

      Each year, we give thousands of tons of our unwanted clothes to charity shops. But where do they actually go? It turns out most don't ever reach the rail of the local charity shop. Instead - they are exported to Africa. And even though we have given them away for free, our castoffs have created a multimillion-dollar industry and some of the world's poorest people pay good money to buy them.

      In this revealing film, charismatic paralympian Ade Adepitan tells the fascinating story of the afterlife of our clothes. He follows the trail to Ghana, the biggest importer of our castoffs where 1000’s of tonnes of our old clothes arrive every week. Ade meets the people who make a living from our old castoffs, from wholesalers and markets traders to the importers raking in more than the average yearly wage in a single day!

      But not everyone is profiting…With cheaply made western clothes flooding the market, the local textile industry has been decimated. Ade visits one of the last remaining cloth factories and finds it on its knees. And the deluge of our clothes isn't just destroying jobs; it has also had a knock-on effect on Ghanaian culture. Western outfits are fast replacing iconic West African prints and traditional garb. Ade travels to remote villages to find everyone wearing British high street brands. Prepare to open your eyes… to the secret life of your clothes.

      "Automation and the future of jobs" is a documentary exploring how digitalization, robotics and automation could reshape the future of jobs.

      What happens to jobs in a world increasingly handled by computers and machines? Will we be able to create new jobs at the same rate as the old ones disappear? If not, what will be left for the people that have been replaced by the machines and the algorithms?

      Thoughtful interviews with some of the planet's most distinguished economists and futurists are interspersed with visits to workplaces around the world, that provide clues as to what the future might look like.

      The documentary travels to Silicon Valley and examines the progress of self-driving cars, a technology that could make millions of jobs in the transportation industry redundant.

      The reporter also visits one of the world's most efficient storage logistics companies, which instead of hiring thousands of workers invested in 200 robots.

      And the audience will get to meet the algorithm-based software that writes articles on its own for the prestigious newspaper Los Angeles Times..

    • 埃塞俄比亞的荷蘭玫瑰

      埃塞俄比亞的荷蘭玫瑰

      荷蘭索爾公司世上最大的玫瑰生產商之一,以埃塞俄比亞為生產基地。每日,索爾為歐洲市場出產三百至四百萬支玫瑰。這些玫瑰都得到公平貿易的認證,這個國際認證意味著這些產品的生產過程是公平和可持續的。節目走訪非洲,調查這些玫瑰的生產方式到底有多「公平」。

      調查後發現,當地玫瑰工人日薪只得一點五歐羅。專家表示,這個薪金水平不足以餬口。索爾在埃塞俄比亞聘請了超過一萬名員工。但年度報告顯示,索爾的荷蘭母公司,在阿斯米爾的辦公室的42名員工總薪金,比埃塞俄比亞的一萬多名在溫室工作的員工還要多。

      「公平貿易」標籤除了保證貿易供鏈的每一環是公平,亦保證產品以可持續方式生產。地理學家馬修.盧頓表示,要維持該公司的玫瑰產量,每年需要耗用至少二千個奧運標準游泳池的水量。而索爾在埃塞俄比亞的用水也導致鄰近河流日漸乾涸。

      一份內部報告更顯示,索爾排出的污水含有破壞生態的成分。該公司在歐洲出售的玫瑰同樣含有這些成份。毒理學教授馬丁.梵登堡分析過數據後說:「這些成分有害,並且可以引起生育及流產問題。」

      在目前旱災嚴重的情況下,埃塞俄比亞政府需要稅收養活國內人口。匿名人士向製作人員提供了索爾的稅務資料,顯示該公司在2011-2015間只向埃塞俄比亞政府繳交四十二萬歐羅的稅項。索爾平均每年的營業額為五千萬歐羅,但索爾卻否認任何有關避稅或逃稅的指控。

      One of the world’s largest rose producers is located in Ethiopia, the Dutch company SHER. Every day, SHER produces between 3 and 4 million roses for the European market. The roses carry the Fairtrade label, an international certificate for fair and sustainable products. Zembla travels to Africa and investigates how “fairly” the roses are produced.

      It turns out the rose laborers earn on average 1.5 euros a day. According to experts, this is not enough to make ends meet. SHER employs over ten thousand people in Ethiopia. Annual reports show that the 42 employees at SHER’s Dutch office in Aalsmeer together earn more than 10,000 Ethiopian colleagues who work in the greenhouses.

      Besides fair trade, Fairtrade also promises sustainability. Geographer Marcel Rutten states that producing the roses requires at least 2000 Olympic-sized swimming pools worth of water every year. In Ethiopia it turns out that SHER’s use of water leads to the nearby river running dry.

      An internal report shows that the wastewater contains substances that harm the ecology. The same substances are also in the SHER roses we buy at the supermarket. Professor of toxicology Martin van den Berg analyzed the data: “These substances are harmful and can lead to fertility problems and miscarriage.”

      In these times of extreme drought the Ethiopian government needs tax income to feed its population. An anonymous source gives us SHER’s tax data. They show that in 5 years (2011-2015), the company has paid only 420,000 euros. SHER has an annual turnover 50 million euros, on average. SHER tells us “there is absolutely no question of tax avoidance or evasion. ?

      在阿特蘭大,行為科學家莎拉・布朗森研究僧帽猴,質疑進化過程引起我們傾向自私的說法,我們對不公制度所感到的忿怒是否深植於人類需互相合作的渴求中? 我們走訪哥斯達黎加及冰島,分析他們如何重組經濟系統,建立更公平的制度,亦會看看美國的種族歧視如何打擊民眾對建立一個公義制度的希望。 我們由種姓歧視的印度村落走到對種族問題敏感的密蘇里州弗格森市街頭,探討我們對公平的概念,尋求改變不公制度的方法。
      本紀錄片觸及經濟、政治、種族與性別上各層面的問題,提出發人深省及適時的見解,找出公平對我們的真正意義。

      Money World 3 - The Price of Fairness

      Why do we accept huge levels of inequality and social injustice? This is one of the central questions that The Price of Fairness sets out to answer, beginning with a surprising set of social experiments in Norway, which suggest that our willingness to support systems of inequality is far greater than we are often prepared to admit.
      In Atlanta, from the perspective of a group of capuchin monkeys. Behavioural scientist Sarah Bronson’s work with the monkeys questions the idea that we have an evolutionary tendency towards selfish behaviour. Could it be that the outrage we feel towards systems of inequality have roots in our human need for cooperation? We visit Costa Rica and Iceland to see how whole economies have been engineered to function with greater ‘fairness’, and the US where systematic racial injustices have tested many of their citizens hopes for a fairer justice system. From the caste-biased villages of India to the race-sensitive streets of Ferguson, Missouri, this documentary explores our understanding of fairness and what it takes to change an unfair system.
      Touching on issues of economic, political, racial and gender inequality, this film offers a thought-provoking and timely look at what fairness really means to us?

      With the birth of the knowledge society, higher education is booming. There were 13 million university students in 1960. In 2015, their ranks had swollen to nearly 200 million. The number of students attending university is exploding around the globe, as a gigantic global student market is being forged… It’s a simple fact: for the past two decades, the new wealth producing champions have been business executives and members of the intellectual and scientific professions.

      Universities are operating in the world’s most competitive knowledge economy. They are waging a ferocious battle to attract the brightest minds from around the globe. We delve into the key seats of decision-making, where money and politics intermingle, and show the deep cultural divide between a lucrative Anglo-Saxon model of funding and the universal independent European. The program also documented the emergence of a new class of over-educated and over-indebted workers.

      Who really benefits from this heightened competition? Just how much debt should students take on? What is the real price for our societies? Is higher education set to be a big market?

      Any company that makes payments in dollars or send emails that pass through a US server like google can be sanctioned in American courts if they break American anti-corruption law. It doesn’t matter if their actions are perfectly legal in their own country. America claims that corruption hurts everyone and that their actions promote good business practice. But this anti-corruption crusade is also undeniably a way of weakening or eliminating foreign compétition, gaining valuable commercial information and funding the US treasury.

       

      When Technip paid a kickback to the President of Nigeria to secure a contract in 1995, this form of business practice was still legal in France. In contrast, in America it was illegal. And 15 years later, Technip was fined an unprecedented $338 million. Not co-operating would have incurred even more severe consequences. In recent years, multiple foreign companies have paid hundreds of millions in fines to the US government.?
