Highlight: DISTANT ECHOES by John Ficara

As Black History Month draws to a close, we'd like to share this intimate portrait of African American farmers.

Black farmers in the United States have faced decades of prejudice, yet continue to work the land, even as they lose their property at 1,000 acres a day. John Ficara spent years documenting the experiences of black farmers, whose entire way of life may someday be nothing more than a distant echo. 14:00 DURATION.

Highlight: The Boat and the Bomb

Greenpeace is a global, non-profit organization with members in 40 countries across Europe, the Americas, Asia, and the Pacific. Now here, on Google Video, you can hear their voice of concern for the environment.

The Boat and the Bomb : 20th Anniversary of the Bombing of the Rainbow Warrior

Nothing is ever true, so the saying goes, until it has been officially denied. The French Government terrorist bombing of the Greenpeace ship the Rainbow Warrior is a classic case.

French Secret Service agents killed Greenpeace photographer Fernando Pereira in the attack, in an operation that would have made the bungling Inspector Clousseau look slick. Despite mounting evidence to the contrary gathered within days of the attack France continued to deny responsibility for over two months. Here we trace the events that led to the eventual reluctant admission of guilt and the disappearance of those responsible. (Description provided by content owner)

Behind the Video: Fear of Girls

Have you ever watched a DVD and when it was over, popped in that extra disk that contained "Special Features" such as an interview with the director? Consider this "Behind the Video" segment that extra disk and revel in this personal interview with the creator of the video "Fear of Girls".

Fear of Girls
Writer/Director - Ryan Wood

1) Why did you make this video?

"That's a good question that makes no economic sense what so ever - The 'short' answer is filmmakers create shorts as a calling card to large projects, but that's not really it. Writers got to write, painters got to paint, and filmmakers got to make film. However, the only economically feasible format for many of us starving writers/directors/producers/actors is the short film format. I love comedy, I love great characters and acting, I love the games. Geek is Chic."

2) Who should watch it?

"Everyone. Then tell your mom. Anyone who loves satire, can gleam comedy out of a 320X240 resolution window, and can have a hearty chuckle about their own foibles."

3) Money, fame, power - which do you hope this video brings?

"First total world domination. Then a girlfriend."

4) What's next (from you, the video creator)?

"We've been contacted by some folks to do another episode - so regardless if they are serious or not, I'm writing another. Because I want to. Also, there's a feature film concept and television pilot floating out there. I also want to be an astronaut."

This premiere reveals Jason's fate - as well as the fates of other favorite players and wives. While this is the first episode of a third season, new fans can easily catch up in the drama and scandal. You'll soon learn how the series got its U.S. tagline, 'Everyone Plays Dirty'!
