Mark Thomas investigates the practises and history of the Coca Cola company, uncovering among other things its support for the Nazis, involvement in the murder of Colombian trade unionists, and environmental damage in Kerala and El Salvador – as well as the all-pervasive advertising by which it gets away with it all.

  1. Great documentary – very interesting about the brain stuff. Pilger did a documentary back in the 1980’s on the rivalry between coke and pepsi, noting coke’s role in the fascist coup in Chile. I must look it up…
