According to the website, "Seed Hunter will take you on a remarkable journey from the drought ravaged farms of Australia, to the heart of the Middle East, to the mountains of Tajikistan where charismatic Australian scientist Dr Ken Street – a real life version of Indiana Jones – and his team of ‘gene detectives’ hunt for plant genes that will help our food withstand the impact of 21st century global warming."

Here is the trailer. I want to see this now:

If you're interested, you can purchase this DVD or even see the film in person. It is playing at the Environmental Film Festival, in Washington DC, on March 20th.

    And if you don’t want to purchase the DVD, then just maybe, you’ll see him in an upcoming episode of Growing a Greener World (hint, hint)!

  • Yes Joe. I didn’t say that before because I posted this before I had your approval for that interview!

    But yes, it looks like we just might be interviewing him soon for our show.
