Buy DVD

Based on Lester Brown’s Plan B book series, this 90-minute film, by award-winning film producers Marilyn and Hal Weiner, premiered on PBS stations across the United States on March 30, 2011. The show is continuing to air at least through mid May of 2011 (see listings for time in your area).

The film follows Lester as he speaks in Beijing, Seoul, Tokyo, New Delhi, Rome, Istanbul, Ankara, and Washington, DC, and visits with world leaders to discuss Plan B—a roadmap that will help eradicate poverty, stabilize population, and protect and restore our planet’s fisheries, forests, aquifers, soils, grasslands, and biological diversity.

Along with Lester Brown, you will hear from notable scholars and scientists including Nobel Laureate Paul Krugman, Pulitzer Prize winner and New York Times columnist Thomas Friedman, and former Governor and Secretary of the Interior Bruce Babbitt.

Narrated by Matt Damon, well-known for his work raising environmental awareness. He is a 2011 winner of the Heart of Green Awards
