The Fruit Hunters (video)

Narrated by David Suzuki, this two-part CBC series is a fascinating look into the world of fruit hunters — people who travel the globe seeking rare fruits, to preserve their diversity, or just to enjoy. The documentary also covers some interesting background history on some of the fruits we’ve come to take for granted, and you’ll meet interesting characters worldwide who have recognised the immense value of the diversity of plant material that was being lost around them, and who have worked to counter that trend, by creating their own "living libraries".

You’ll find it highly watchable, and will come away with a greater appreciation for the value of our natural heritage. See Part I above, and Part II below.
