The Way We Were
Deforestation has turned the waters of New Zealand's Lake Forsyth toxic, killing pets, livestock, and potentially humans. Miriama Kamo takes us to the lake where generations of her family have grown up.
"Lake Forsyth is so polluted some say its dying, some even say it's already dead", says Miriama. The polluted water has destroyed the centuries old tradition of eeling among local Maori communities, that have lived alongside the lake for generations. A local resident explains that "the lakes and rivers represent our way of life".FULL SYNOPSIS
