Exploring planet Earth and our place within it, with David Suzuki (VIDEO)

Back in 2002, for our TV documentary series on CBC, The Sacred Balance, we teamed up with environmentalist David Suzuki to travel to 5 continents and learn about our human need for harmony in nature on planet earth. Now, we have excerpts!
