Download Hour1 Download Hour2 This week we adapt a documentary, Lessons from Ladakh. It chronicles a 20 year period during which the remote Himalayan region of Ladakh was subjected to capitalist development in the name of progress, destroying an ancient culture based on solidarity, and the fragile ecosystem which had previously met the needs of the people. Where there had been a sense of abundance and happiness, there was now squalor and despair.
