I’ve was doing my regular hard drive spring cleaning when I saw this story that we produced for Reporter’s Notebook in December 2006. Entitled Lason, it reports on the alleged effects of aerial spraying in the banana plantations of Davao del Norte.
What I remember aside from the story itself was taking the next flight to Davao City on a Saturday afternoon, just three hours after I had arrived in Manila from a one-week post typhoon coverage in Bicol. Joseph Laban was the Segment Producer for this story. Talk about connecting flights!
