Taking the shine off a precious metal in RTD’s Gold documentaries

Striking it rich and finding gold is the dream of many, but only a few can achieve that goal. Around the world, the poor scrape a living out of the earth looking for the precious metal sometimes in the most precarious of situations. RTD’s Gold documentaries travel the world meeting the men, women, and children desperate to stake a claim. From Guatemala to Kyrgyzstan RTD follows men and women working in highly dangerous situations, as they pan for a few grains of the precious metal; enough to put food on the table and a roof over their heads.
