MIPCOM Picks 2010: Trashopolis
This series informs us that some of the world’s greatest cities — including Rome, Cairo, New York, Paris and London – were built upon foundations of fetid refuse. Each episode looks at the role that garbage played in developing some of civilization’s greatest urban advances. We also see how these cities are coping with, and still learning from, garbage today. While you get to see all of the gloriously trashy moments of Trashopolis in HD, perhaps we can be somewhat thankful that television hasn’t yet embraced ‘Smellovision.’
