A World Without Water is a Channel 4 program detailing the current global water crisis:
"The world is running out of its most precious resource. True Vision's timely film tells of the personal tragedies behind the mounting privatization of water supplies. More than a billion people across the globe don’t have access to safe water. Every day 3900 children die as a result of insufficient or unclean water supplies. The situation can only get worse as water gets evermore scarce."
