One World One Voice

The Music on this album was first played to over a billion people around the world in May 1990 - The climax of the 'One World' series on television. It is the ultimate global mix, the brainchild of Kevin Godley. Filmed and recorded on the road, it is a "chain tape", each of the musicians adding a new theme to the mix as Kevin's team toured the world. All profits will go to charities fighting environ - mental destruction and rising global poverty.

Produced by Rupert Hine 
Recorded and mixed by Stephen W. Tayler

Waiting for Fahd: One Family's Hope for Life Beyond Guantánamo

Waiting for Fahd: One Family's Hope for Life Beyond Guantánamo 

The heartrending documentary "Waiting for Fahd," tells the story 
of CCR client Fahd Ghazy, a Yemeni national unlawfully detained 
at Guantánamo since he was 17 and who is now 30. Through moving interviews with his beloved family in Yemen, "Waiting for Fahd" paints 
a vivid portrait of the life that awaits a man who, despite being twice cleared for release, continues to languish at Guantánamo, denied his home, his livelihood, and his loved ones because of his nationality.
