• Bangladesh Part 1

    Bangladesh is a friendly but frequently misunderstood country. It usually only gets a mention by western media when a disaster occurs. Few tourist go there, which is good for those that do, but not so for the Bangladesh economy. This is the first of a series of videos shot on a visit I made in January 2013. Part one starts with a visit to the spectacular and surreal ship breaking yards on the beach north of Chittagong. Hundreds of ships are dismantled here each year using mostly manual labour, very little mechanisation is employed. The work is hard, dirty and dangerous but it gives thousands of men employment and wages to feed their families. Change must take place, but not at the expense of creating starvation conditions for these people. It took Great Britain over two hundred years to cr...

  • "Captain John's" ship JADRAN scrapped

    As seen on Jun.17, 2015, the hull of the ALGOMA PROGRESS is being dismantled and scrapped at the Marine Recycling Corp. site on the Welland Canal at Port Colborne. Also, the front-pilothouse-steamer AMERICAN FORTITUDE (reg. at Wilmington, Del.) is seen, waiting for scrapping, and the JADRAN (formerly known in Toronto as Captain John's Seafood Restaurant) is also seen, waiting to be scrapped. By Aug.1, 2015 (as seen at 02:16), the JADRAN has had her superstructure removed almost down to the hull, while large sections of the superstructure now sit on the shore. Also see my video of JADRAN being towed into the Welland Canal: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=irZc4nvwKuk

  • Asbestosis: The slow poison killing ship-breaking workers

    Workers' deaths at the ship-breaking yards of Chittagong are a common incident, as is environmental poisoning. But researchers have now detected one deadly illness that has been silently affecting the workers for decades. Many ships that come to the yards are filled with the mineral asbestos, used in the 1980s and '90s for insulation on high-heat areas such as boilers and steam pipes. It has since been banned across the world for safety concerns. In a recent study, Bangladesh Occupational Safety, Health and Environment Foundation (OSHE) found that almost 33% of the ship-breaking workers are affected by asbestosis, an incurable disease caused by breathing the mineral in the form of dust or fume.

Change must take place, but not at the expense of creating starvation conditions for these people. It took Great Britain over two hundred years to create safe industrial practices and provide the workforce with good working conditions, we cannot expect Bangladesh to achieve these changes overnight. Following the shipbreaking sequence there are some scenes at a station near Chittagong. Then video shot during a daylight journey from Chittagong to Dhaka on the Sudarna Express. Note the many snack vendors, there is no need to go hungry on a Bangladesh train! The 320km line is currently being doubled throughout to increase capacity and shorten journey time.
