Summary HACKED OFFAmid the worldwide headlines over the phone hacking scandal in the UK, it was the news that murder victims and their families had been hacked that caused the most anger. Graham Foulkes lost his son, David, in the 2005 London bombings, and believes journalists listened to the family's anguished messages as they tried to contact him. On top of that, he tells video journalist Evan Williams that he thinks the police sold his number to the News of the World. Evan also meets Rose Gentle, whose son, Gordon, was killed by a roadside bomb in Iraq in 2005. She describes the news that her phone could have been hacked as 'like being invaded'.Their stories are just two of the estimated 4,000 possible victims now being investigated, in a story that's reverberating around the world and could spell the end of Rupert Murdoch's empire.THE BIG THAWGreenland is literally getting greener, as global warming melts the ice and makes its valuable resources more accessible than ever before... such as oil and the 'rare earths' used in modern technology. But while the changing climate is creating new opportunities, what cost could it have on the country's pristine environment and traditional way of life? Video journalist Nick Lazaredes reports on the divisions opening up in Greenland, with concerns about the potentially catastrophic effect of an oil spill or uranium contamination. However, with 50% unemployment in some places, could harsh economic realities end up driving the decision?FOUR-LEGGED LIBRARYYou're unlikely to have seen a mobile library like the one on Sunday's Dateline... teacher Luis Soriano takes books to remote areas of Colombia on the back of a donkey! Before he started the BiblioBurro - or Donkey Library - 13 years ago, many of the children had no books at home and their reading skills were lagging behind. Now, thanks to his travels and reading to the children, literacy is improving, and the youngsters are learning about life far beyond their rural areas and the violent conflicts of Colombia's past. On Sunday's program, video journalist David O'Shea sees the delight as the Donkey Library comes to visit, and even helps with reading to the excited children
