Not only Frosty, of course - many of us will be interested in this one:
08:30 pm STORYLINE AUSTRALIA - DIRTY WAR (Eastern States schedule)
Since 9/11, the US wants to establish more bases in more countries as a key strategy in its ‘War on Terror'. Meanwhile a global toxic horror story is emerging from those living near present and past bases in the US and overseas. 14-year-old Erwinjohn Tuazon has just come out of a course of chemotherapy. He is one of many childhood leukaemia cases recorded in the close vicinity of the former bases at Clark and Subic in the Philippines. Proper treatment is way beyond the means of most families where the average daily income is five dollars a day. As far as the doctors are concerned, there's nothing more that can be done for Erwinjohn. The US has around 2000 bases in 140 countries worldwide. Military bases are places of major industrial operations – testing and use of munitions, fuelling, paint-stripping, tank-flushing, all using a lethal cocktail of toxic substances including heavy metals, dioxins, and PCB's. Against a geo-political backdrop of war, terrorism, and shifting global alliances Dirty War is the story of a David and Goliath struggle between a group of poisoned Filipino peasants and allegedly one of the largest and certainly most powerful polluters on the planet – the US military.
