Imagine half a million adults skipping town and leaving their children behind. Picture an opened suitcase filled with bundles of cash at a bus stop and yet no robber wants to snatch it. The apiary science mystery known as 'Colony Collapse Disorder' displays these very symptoms. Not only do the bees abandon their hive, but the queen and the brood as well. Unnatural. Unheard of. Even the predators that usually raid the hive for honey stay far away. At first, this occurrence sounds like an urban legend or an exaggerated tale. Except it s not. The situation is both dire and all too real. Bees are disappearing all over the planet and no one knows why.

A very informative video on the events currently taking place (when the film was shot). It might have lacked "epic" moments and cliff hangers like The Cove, or Sharkwater has, but none the less the facts are there, and they're frightening indeed.
A good film for grown ups as well as kids, although the kids might have to be explained a thing or two when it comes to the technical aspects.
I recommend buying it, if you're even just a little concerned for our environment and for the survival of these lovely creatures who we owe so much to.
But the documentary is soooo sloooow, that after the first 20 minutes you get the plot, that you then have another hour to watch through it waiting for something else to happen - sorry to say I fell asleep, whereas the rest of my family disappeared to watch something else.
May bee this is why the Bees where disappearing with CCD.
joking apart - I had heard good reviews about this documentary but alas sad to say its not on my top list.
Sad to be negative, perhaps I was expecting too much, waiting for a sensational outcome that never came. Or have I watched to many X-Files in the past?
This film chronicles the path that has led to a situation where I could even imagine bee extinction as a possibility whilst there's still life on this planet. It makes a sobering viewing talking of inexplicable colony loss on the back of modern industrial agriculture and industrialised bee-keeping.
All is not yet lost but it's noy yet resolved, either. Watch this for an update and to point your thinking in a bee friendly way (if it ain't already!)
