Documentaries About Landmines
RTD documentaries about landmines focus on people clearing minefields in the most dangerous areas of the planet, such as Western Sahara, Libya or Cambodia. Conflicts there have left thousands of square miles of land covered with mines and unexploded ordnance which regularly kill and injure civilians.
"Western Sahara, Determined," tells the story of a demining squad made up of young Sahrawi women, who work in Western Sahara, one of the most heavily mined regions in the world.
"Mine Country" follows Libyan volunteer sappers clearing Benghazi of the mines left by Islamic terrorists. "Isaac. The Story of a Little Giant" takes us inside a training camp for giant African pouched rats. They are being bred and trained to detect explosives and then sent to help communities around the world.
Documentaries about landmines also feature in the Combat Approved series, with episodes showcasing such devices as the Listva, a high tech demining vehicle that safely detonates mines to protect nuclear convoys.
