| Dimming the Sun | The Producer's Story | PBS

NOVA | Dimming the Sun | The Producer's Story | PBS: "Like most films that we at DOX Productions make for NOVA, 'Dimming the Sun' is a coproduction between a U.K. broadcaster and WGBH, Boston. So we are well used to creating two slightly different versions, one for the British audience and one for the American. Often the difference is simply one of language, those little Britishisms and Americanisms that cause so much innocent amusement (you say 'tomato', we say 'genetically modified organism'). But 'Dimming the Sun' posed an interesting and unusual challenge: how to deal with the fact that British and American viewers are, so to speak, in a different place when it comes to global warming."
