Some people may think of them simply as sandy, sunny-day playgrounds. Others consider beaches as the "front lines" of an environmental effort to protect the life and health of the vast oceans. Conservationists agree that the world's beaches are important to local economies and to the well-being of the earth as a whole; and preserving them for the future is an important effort.
An upcoming segment of the innovative Champions of Industry series, featuring Jimmy Johnson, will focus on the beaches and their present and future needs. Tourists and trash, erosion, the changing fate of coastal ecosystems and wildlife, housing and development, and problems from beyond the shore -- all lead to concerns about the preservation of beaches, and the infringement of civilization on nature.
This program is one of a series of educational television programming produced by the Champions of Industry team. Segments are either 30-minute programs or short, interstitial offerings. They explore a wide variety of topics, from marbles of the world and modern wine-making, to modern farming, Kosher food and alternative energy, to big business, health care workers and military children.
Segments are broadly categorized in subject matter, including travel, the family, architecture, medicine, education and the environment, among others. The programs are privately produced and distributed to public television stations, to be aired by local stations at their discretion.
