Praying for rain( Visual )

3 editions published between 1993 and 2000 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Documentary of the 1992 drought in Zimbabwe, Africa. Shows how the first African country to avoid starvation during an drought survived without a lot of outside help. It was filmed mainly in the rural areas and looks at some of the methods used to feed the population. Wildlife herds were culled to provide much needed protein for the starving people. The government provided 85 percent of the relief food after a riot. A water pipeline project also became very important
Blood and sand : war in the Sahara : a report( Visual )

1 edition published in 1982 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The film provides the first Western coverage of the war in the Western Sahara. Morocco is trying to maintain its occupation despite the opposition of local people (although many of them have fled to refugee camps in Algeria) and the disruption of the Moroccan economy. The United States has supported Morocco diplomatically and with arms sales during the Carter and Reagan administrations despite human rights concerns and the support for the Western Sahara inhabitants by many other countries
