Rex Wyler and Paul Watson, both among the co-founders of Greenpeace, describe the danger and tragedy of the first whale rescue mission they conducted in 1975, when Russian whale hunters were tracking a pod off the coast of California. This video with archival footage of the rescue mission is an excerpt from American Masters: A Fierce Green Fire, premiering on PBS on Earth Day, April 22, 2014.
