On our visit to Tien Giang for focus group discussions with farmers on 6 November 2012, we chanced upon the location shooting of an episode of the TV Vinh Long Ecological Engineering (EE) series, Cong Ngee Sinh Thai. Filmed on location in Tan Binh Thanh village the TV host, Ms. Phuong Thuy, interviewed two EE resource persons, Dr. Ho Van Chien and K.L. Heong, on key questions on the impact of climate change on food production, climate change and biodiversity conservation, and function of ecological engineering in the face of climate change. Shot on a farmer’s field under the heat of the late morning sun, the 8-hour shooting unraveled the tedious work of TV production.
