Other Holy Land, The This documentary explores the earliest history and growth of Christianity in Asia Minor, now the country of Turkey. Top scholars of archeology and history guide us through three geographical areas - Cappadocia, Ephesus, and Constantinople (Istanbul) - that played a major role in the transformation of a "cult" called Christianity into a world wide religion.Turkey today is a very modern country, where visitors can still discover secret churches carved out of rock, visit markets and landscapes that seem unchanged over two millennia, gaze on ancient icons, stand amid historic ruins, and walk in the footsteps of St. Paul. And they can do this in a country that is overwhelmingly Muslim, but which welcomes Christians to these holy places.Viewers of The Other Holy Land experience the contrast between booming modern Turkey and ancient Christian and pagan sites. They rediscover the early communities that welcomed Paul of Tarsus and John the Evangelist. They recall how the Emperor Constantine lifted Christians from persecution and embraced their faith himself, helping to turn it away from a fledgling religion into the institution of Christianity that we know today.

Historic Green Village: Generating the Future, Treasuring the Past HISTORIC GREEN VILLAGE: Generating the Future, Treasuring the Past is a 30-minute documentary that explores how the Historic Green Village on Anna Maria Island, Florida has become a showcase for sustainable living, electrical generation and water conservation by recycling and renovating historic buildings in the area.Mike and Lizzie Thrasher ran a highly successful baby food company in their native country of Britain. They vacationed on the idyllic barrier island of Anna Maria in South West Florida. They fell in love with the area, sold their business and used the proceeds to develop a real estate business in Anna Maria. Their showcase location is the Historic Green Village in the heart of the community. The village consists of two original remodeled buildings, one new building and two homes that were moved to the site from different parts of the island.The Thrashers had two major goals for the project: to become LEED Certified Platinum and to have a Net Zero Campus. What does all this mean? The buildings would use as little electricity as possible, generate their own electricity, adhere to strict environmental usage of water, and be part of a community that has a limited impact on the environment. They had many challenges along the way including having a bakery and a café on site which are both heavy power consumers.

Narrated by Penny Hammer, a Gulf Coast resident, WINDOW IN THE WAVES tells the intriguing story of the reefs' formation, their essential function as a haven for marine animals, their designation as a national sanctuary in 1992 and their critical importance to the global environment. Formed millions of years ago and protected by remoteness, the three reefs collectively cover 56 square nautical miles in the Gulf of Mexico— and teem with biodiversity. Stunning underwater footage gathered over the course of hundreds of dives reveals the diverse inhabitants, including hundreds of species of fish and invertebrates. Cameras also capture a spectacular annual event in the life of coral reefs. Seven to 10 days after the August Moon, sponges begin to smoke and corals produce an underwater snowstorm resulting in an explosion of new life. WINDOW IN THE WAVES also highlights the unique partnership forged among environmental groups, divers, fishermen and the oil and gas industry to protect this fragile underwater ecosystem from the ever-constant threat of overfishing, climate change, invasive species and pollution.

The Gefilte-Fish Chronicles With 86-year-old twin sisters Peppy Barer and Rosie Groman narrating, THE GEFILTE FISH CHRONICLES tells the story of how a family embraces the Passover holiday: not only to celebrate a religious event, but to stay spiritually and physically connected through traditional meal preparations. Although this is a tale about one family, it crosses cultural and religious lines, to remind us of how many families develop rituals as they celebrate holidays. A celebration of spring and Jewish freedom, Passover brings the whole Dubroff family together. The holiday begins with the "Seder," a meal where the story of the Jewish exodus from Egypt, a journey out of slavery, is recounted in prose, song, and prayer. The film opens six weeks before Passover with the making of a perfect horseradish, and concludes with sunny goodbyes following a matzoh brie breakfast the morning after the Seder. Family recipes that appear on screen during closing credits add an extra special touch to the program. THE GEFILTE FISH CHRONICLES is filled with joy and love, family films and photographs.

Healthy Body, Healthy Mind Learning about Advanced Breast Cancer In its early stages, breast cancer usually has no symptoms. Detecting a lump by way of breast examination, or having a mammogram, is typically how breast cancer is discovered and why regular examinations are so important. But due to metastases that occur with advanced breast cancer, symptoms may sometimes occur. These include: reddish, pitted surface on the breast, breast pain, bone pain, skin ulcers, unintentional weight loss, and shortness of breath. Advanced breast cancer patients have different needs and challenges than those with early stages of breast cancer, so overall patient care is extremely important. And when it comes to developing targeted cancer treatment strategies, doctors now know that the biological make-up of cancers vary greatly which will determine which treatments to recommend. In this program, we will delve into the study of advanced breast cancer; meet some of the country's leading researchers in the field, and spend time with patients who deal with the difficulties surrounding this disease.

Sisters SISTERS is a one-hour documentary that takes the audience into the life stories of five American nuns. It is a film about faith and hope, love and death, seen through the eyes of five women who have committed everything to the service of others in the deepest way. Their stories are told in the honest words and actions of the women themselves. They hold nothing back. Each has taken the vows of poverty, chastity and obedience, and their devotion is revealed principally through service to those in need— the poor, sick, and uneducated. They live and work around us, and yet to many they seem to exist in a world of their own. Out in their everyday existence, in the clothing of ordinary women, these Sisters live lives that are at once profoundly spiritual yet deeply human. How did they come to embrace this extraordinary life and its sacrifices? How do they actually experience the presence of God? What happens when they fall in love? What happens when they experience cruelty and death—the loss of a mother, the random and merciless anguish of a child's cancer? What anchors their faith? Through the vivid stories of these women's lives, the film explores the deepest hopes and yearnings of the human spirit, the risks and rewards of a generous heart. Beautifully produced by three-time Emmy winner and Academy Award nominee Robert Gardner, the film is a surprising and moving exploration of a world few of us know.

Voices VOICES is an award-winning documentary that features the stark and intimate portraits of three very different individuals and their struggle with severe mental illness in America. The stories of Sharon, Thomas and Aaron illuminate the challenges, realities, and often complex emotions and choices that surround people with psychotic mental illness and those who love them.In turning the camera on these individuals and their families, the subtle power of Voices lies in the brutal honesty of families sharing their stories for the first time, unburdening themselves from the stigma of mental illness. As they search for answers they know they may never find, they expose the human back-story of the psychotic experience in a way never before captured on camera.The film takes a fresh approach, as families steer the narrative over rocky and deeply personal terrain. Without expert commentators deployed to "make sense" of what often does not, Voices allows people to tell their own stories, unmediated by statistics or authorities that imply answers. With this nuanced style, the film provocatively highlights the disjointed and decompensated behaviors that can result from serious mental illness, and its impact on society and the loved ones in its orbit.

COMPASSION FOR THOSE WE LOVECOMPASSION FOR THOSE WE LOVE: A TOWN MEETING ON CA More than 200,000 Spanish-speaking people in the United States suffer from Alzheimer's disease and, according to the Alzheimer's Association, that number could potentially increase to 1.3 million by 2050 — a growth rate of 600 percent. Alzheimer's presents its own set of problems in the general population, but it seems to affect the Latino population at a higher rate. Latinos, studies suggest, possess more risk factors (diabetes, high blood pressure) for developing dementia than other groups and exhibit Alzheimer's symptoms at an earlier age than non-Hispanics. In addition, surveys indicate Latinos' reluctance to see doctors may result from financial and language barriers or because they mistake dementia symptoms for normal aging, thereby delaying the diagnosis. Taped in Spanish in front of an audience — and subtitled in English — COMPASSION FOR THOSE WE LOVE focuses on the human stories of the care giving crisis in a town hall-style format, hosted by Ms. Tsi-tsi-ki Félix, a Telemundo news anchor and reporter, and featuring a panel discussion and a question-and-answer session with experts. One of the Hispanic community's strengths — the strong cultural value of family responsibility and the desire to care for elders and loved ones in the home — make the need for accurate information and access to care giving resources all the more critical. This educational program addresses these issues and others in a linguistically and culturally sensitive manner. Although geared specifically to the Hispanic community, much of the information presented is universal and applicable to most Alzheimer's caregivers.

Roadtrip Nation It's a Journey - Not a Destination Against a backdrop of sweeping sand and swaying palm trees, the road-trippers make their way to Palm Springs to interview NASA engineer Adam Steltzner. Adam boasts an impressive resume that includes directing the landing of the Curiosity rover on Mars, but describes an unlikely sequence of life events that led him to where he is: He was a terrible student in school, isn't sure whether he graduated high school, and spent years as an aimless musician without even knowing the Earth rotated on an axis! A fateful night looking up at the stars eventually kindled his interest in science, but his circuitous path teaches the road-trippers that it's always possible to alter your trajectory. Later, in Taos, New Mexico, the team meets with Sherry Grathler, a river guide who backed out of a career in law to pursue the outdoors. Sherry discusses the challenges of defying societal expectations, and leads the road-trippers through a whitewater rapid excursion down the Rio Grande that teaches them the importance of going with the flow of life. Later, the road-trippers find themselves pleasantly outside their comfort zones with a festive Fourth of July celebration deep in the heart of Texas.

Healthy Body, Healthy Mind Managing Female Stress Urinary Incontinence An unintentional loss of urine is called, urinary incontinence. Stress incontinence is caused when a physical movement or activity puts pressure (stress) on the bladder. Female stress incontinence is very common, and, in many cases, can be treated. Women in their 30s and beyond can be susceptible to this condition. Certain physical changes that can occur during pregnancy, childbirth, and also menopause, can result in stress incontinence. Throughout these events, muscles and ligaments that support the bladder can become weakened, eventually causing urine to leak into the urethra during moments of physical stress. Stress can be created through simple daily acts such as lifting an object, sneezing, coughing, even laughing, or any similar activities that put pressure on the bladder. In this program we will give dialogue to a topic that many of those affected often feel too embarrassed to discuss. We'll meet with medical experts and their patients, as they define this common condition and how it is managed.
