Let's retrieve this film back on a video, better still on DVD

This juvenile film is indeed valuable for its portrayal of juvenile intellect, concern, responsibility and in their own special but indeed very intelligent manner, these youngsters have very cleverly fought against the crime of pollution, in this case of the waters. Now mind you, it's indeed the actual course of action of these youngsters, namely how intelligently, practically as adults have handled this pollution matter and ultimately how the perpetrators have been apprehended by the police. This is a relatively short film of approximately 1 hour duration, and it's indeed worth seeing, thus indeed the intelligent work of these youngsters. Hopefully this film will be again reproduced so that the old copy could be replaced.
