I highly recommend a BBC World Service programme which highlights some of the impacts of poor access to water in Bangladesh + Calcutta...

In rural Bangladesh well-water is sometimes contaminated with arsenic, while in Calcutta many children have to miss school in order to queue for water every day.

A second programme looks at how the Masaai share their water supply with cattle + what happens when a familiy's water supply dries up in the summer...
