`A wry and irreverent look at the whole question of cultural imperialism.' Mixes interview and vox pop with local music and imported television clips to show how foreign television programming, made almost exclusively in the United States, is "polluting" the Caribbean airwaves. Trinidad and Tobago Television has a giant satellite dish on its roof which is permanently set to pick up programmes from North American television and beam them directly into a million Caribbean homes.
