Rob Rapley is a producer and writer, known for American Experience, Becoming American: The Chinese Experience, and Great Performances.
When famine ravaged India in 1966, the nation turned to one man: a small-town Iowan obsessed with wheat. Rob Rapley joins host Krys Boyd to talk about Norman E. Borlaug, who won praise for his work on disease resistance crops – which also came with unintended consequences. His American Experience film “The Man Who Tried to Feed The World” airs tonight on PBS stations.
