Brazil: The Carbon Hunters FRONTLINE/WORLD journeys to the Amazon and the remote rainforests of Brazil, where several major American companies are on the hunt for ways to capture an increasingly valuable commodity -- carbon -- as Congress considers new legislation that would force them to pay for their pollution. In a joint project with the Center for Investigative Reporting, reporter Mark Schapiro visits a number of demonstration projects that help explore the promise and potential pitfalls of this new trade in trees.

Guatemala: In the Shadow of the Raid On the two-year anniversary of the immigration raid at a kosher meatpacking plant in Postville, Iowa -- one of the largest workplace raids in history – filmmakers Greg Brosnan and Jennifer Szymaszek offer an affecting look at the human cost of the crackdown on both sides of the border.

Uganda: Out of the Wild Uganda's "Impenetrable Forest" -- home to the world's largest population of Mountain Gorillas, is also a hotbed for a number of deadly diseases that cross the species barrier from animals to humans. Our story investigates how a new idea in public health called "One Health" is emerging to help combat threats like Ebola, Marburg virus, and TB.

NOTE: This was produced by Frontline/World but aired as part of Frontline: A Death in Tehran.
