Vanishing of the Bees 

Honeybees have been mysteriously disappearing across the planet, literally vanishing from their hives.

Known as Colony Collapse Disorder, this phenomenon has brought beekeepers to crisis in an industry responsible for producing apples, broccoli, watermelon, onions, cherries and a hundred other fruits and vegetables. Commercial honeybee operations pollinate crops that make up one out of every three bites of food on our tables.

VANISHING OF THE BEES follows commercial beekeepers David Hackenberg and Dave Mendes as they strive to keep their bees healthy and fulfill pollination contracts across the U.S. The film explores the struggles they face as the two friends plead their case on Capital Hill and travel across the Pacific Ocean in the quest to protect their honeybees.

Filming across the US, in Europe, Australia and Asia, this documentary examines the alarming disappearance of honeybees and the greater meaning it holds about the relationship between mankind and mother earth. As scientists puzzle over the cause, organic beekeepers indicate alternative reasons for this tragic loss. Conflicting options abound and after years of research, a definitive answer has not been found to this harrowing mystery.



IN-STUDIO GUESTS:

Take Back Your Power 

PROGRAM DESCRIPTION
Around the world, corporate utilities and governments are racing to replace electricity, gas and water meters with new-generation 'smart' meters with surveillance capabilities, quietly using billions in taxpayer funds. But at what cost to human rights, finances, security and health?

With compelling insight from insiders, government representatives, whistle-blowers, lawyers, doctors and environmentalists, TAKE BACK YOUR POWER investigates claimed benefits and emerging risks of this ubiquitous 'smart' grid program.

Transparency advocate Josh del Sol takes us on a journey of revelation and discovery while asking:
  • Are 'smart' grid technologies effective, safe and eco-friendly?
  • Or are corporations violating foundational rights and privacy - without providing benefit - in the name of 'green'?
  • What truly sustainable solutions are now unfolding that can meet the great challenges faced by our civilization?
What he uncovered will surprise, unsettle and inspire you.

A consummate troubadour, Tommy tells the stories behind select songs throughout the concert. He said of his legacy, "I want to let the younger generation to know you don't need a lot pyrotechnics to turn people on. You need to have good songs."

Healthy Body, Healthy Mind Understanding Organ Donation & Transplantation The human body has 78 organs. Due to illness or injury, if one of your organs fails, you may need a transplant. An organ transplant is when doctors remove a healthy organ from one person and place it in the body of another. The organ may come from a living donor or a deceased donor. Whatever the origin, becoming an organ donor offers hope to thousands of people each year in need of a transplant. Daily, about 79 people receive an organ transplant. Eighteen others, however, will die waiting for a transplant that can't take place because of an organ shortage. Every 10 minutes another name is added to the waiting list. Among the major organs regularly transplanted are heart, lung, pancreas and small intestine. However, the two organs most consistently transplanted are the kidney and the liver. In this program, we will discuss the importance of organ donation and transplantation, hear from leading researchers in the field, visit with patients and family members whose lives have been changes by having received an organ transplant, and go to "The Transplant Games" in Houston, Texas, as donation recipients show firsthand how organ transplantations change lives.

Although the diagnosis came as a total shock, Kim faced her new reality head-on. She resolved to find out as much as she could about Huntington's and capture it on film to raise public awareness about the disease.

Roadtrip Nation Connecting the Dots Halfway through the journey, we find the road-trippers in Washington D.C., where they interview Brittan Heller, a human rights attorney. Brittan explains her "connect-by-dots" approach to career-building, which starts off with knowing what you're passionate about and taking small steps grounded in conviction. This philosophy echoes with Ed, who realizes that every experience has the potential to shape him—regardless if he knows his final destination. Later, the road-trippers make their way to Philadelphia, where they interview Sal Donato, a racecar-building mechanic who owns his own shop. As a first-generation American, Sal exudes a hard-working, up-by-the-bootstraps mentality, which Olivia can relate to as the daughter of immigrants. Olivia leaves the interview feeling inspired by Sal's success story and the unquestionable joy he derives from his work. Later, after stopping to enjoy Philly Cheesesteaks, the team interviews Christine Borelli and Stacey Cruise, two women who revitalized a crime-ridden school by using compassion instead of punishment. Tele'jon is particularly moved by the school's transformation and leaves the conversation feeling fired up about creating institutional change in education.

Healthy Body, Healthy Mind MDS: A Disease of Abnormal Blood Cells Levels Myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS) are a group of diseases that affect the bone marrow and blood. In MDS, the blood-forming cells in the marrow slow down, or even stop. Most patients with MDS will develop anemia caused be a low number of red blood cells, and may need blood transfusions. Some patients also have low numbers of white blood cells whose job is to fight infections, and platelets which help blood clot when we're bruised or cut. About 19,000 people are diagnosed with MDS in the United States each year. And although it can affect people of any age, the majority is older than 60 years. Exposure to certain industrial chemicals or radiation can increase the risk of developing MDS. In some cases, it is caused by chemotherapy used to treat a different disease. This is called secondary MDS. In most cases though, the cause of MDS is unknown. In this program, we will explore the science behind this disease, learn from leading experts in the study and treatment of MDS, and hear the stories of patients whose lives are affected by MDS.

Omaha Beach: Honor And Sacrifice On D-Day, a roughly 7,000-yard stretch of beach in Normandy, France given the code name "Omaha" proved to be the Allies' biggest obstacle to the success of Operation Overlord. The assignment to take Omaha Beach, establish a beachhead, and move inland into France was given to two American divisions — the already battle-hardened 1st Infantry Division (The Big Red One) and the untested 29th Infantry Division (The Blue and the Gray), who had yet to see any combat in World War II. American Naval Combat Demolition Units also hit the beach that day, writing their own individual stories of horror and heroism. Seven decades after the "Boys of Omaha Beach" landed, many veterans are returning to this part of the Normandy coast for the last time. Other soldiers who were there on D-Day have also come back for the first time since that historic day, looking for closure as they enter the final years of their lives.

Day of Days: June 6, 1944 On June 6, 1944, thousands of Allied servicemen landed on the shores of northern France, tasked with liberating western Europe from Nazi tyranny. Over the ensuing hours and days, the men faced decimating machine-gun fire, mortars and artillery, eventually fighting their way inland, but not before suffering a staggering number of casualties. To commemorate the 70th anniversary of the Normandy landing, four D-Day veterans gather at the famed Museum of World War II outside of Boston, Mass. to share their experiences from that fateful "Day of Days." Cameras eavesdrop on their conversations as they vividly recall details from their ordeal — from the perils of the amphibious assault to the invasion's gruesome aftermath. Their interactions with one another yield long-buried, and often painful, memories. They recount their transformations from boys to men, reveal their uneasiness with the term "hero," and grapple with why they survived when so many others did not.

You have to laugh, she tells the road-trippers, and thrive from adversity; take a real look at the opportunities that are presented to you, and say yes as often as you can. From there, the road-trippers head to Detroit, MI, where they encounter one of the renegade artists who are taking back the city. Spoken word poet Airea Dee Matthews urges the road-trippers to find rebirth in collapse; in the mostly abandoned city, the artists of Detroit don't see decay, but possibility. The road-trippers see the decay for themselves when they tour an abandoned building and experience the sense of freedom and energy that drives the artists' push for regeneration. Next, in Chicago, IL, Tele'jon struggles to reconcile his mentors' suggestions that he become a professor with his disaffection for the educational system. After interviewing Professor David Stovall, Tele'jon sees that David shares his concerns about access and privilege, and uses his position to create change.

Cut From Different Cloth: Burqas and Beliefs In 2005 filmmakers Cliff Orloff and Olga Shalygin returned to Afghanistan's northern city of Mazar-i-Sharif for the third time since the fall of the Taliban in 2002. Despite a growing network of Afghan friends and colleagues from their two prior visits, they had been restricted in their ability to meet freely with Afghan women.The all-covering burqa, the high-walled living compounds and cultural restrictions on women limited their access. Olga, a Pulitzer Prize winning photojournalist, was puzzled why virtually all the Afghan women she saw still wore the burqa...even though a new constitution was adopted that granted women equal rights with men.This time, Olga brought Serena, her 27-year old stepdaughter. Serena lived for a month as an Afghan with Hasina, a 27-year old Afghan woman, and her family. Serena became the eyes and ears of the filmmakers. Together, Hasina, Serena and Olga set out on a journey to learn what it means to be a woman in today's Afghanistan. In the process they confront their own conflicts with culture and traditions.

Frank Lloyd Wright's Boynton House: The Next Hundred Years FRANK LLOYD WRIGHT'S BOYNTON HOUSE: THE NEXT HUNDRED YEARS provides an exclusive look inside the painstaking process of restoring and rehabilitating a historic home. Even today, the Boynton House — one of the few Frank Lloyd Wright creations still functioning as a private, single-family residence instead of a museum — stands out among the traditional Tudors and colonials that line the streets of its Rochester, New York neighborhood. Built in 1908, the Boynton House exemplifies Wright's signature "Prairie style," with its gently sloping roofs, long bands of windows, wide overhangs, low terraces, private gardens, open floor plan and built-in furnishings. Over time, however, this national treasure fell into disrepair, ravaged by 100 years of weather, termites and wear-and-tear. In 2010, new owners Fran Cosentino and Jane Parker set out to restore Boynton House to its original splendor, following Wright's design concepts and architectural philosophy. Cosentino guides cameras through every phase of the transformation, including the restoration of art glass panels and cantilevered front porch, the replacement of the roof, the addition of a three-car garage and back porch, and the conservation of original furniture.

Healthy Body, Healthy Mind Gaucher Disease: An inherited condition of the Body's Organs Gaucher disease is an inherited disorder that affects many of the body's organs and tissues. From infancy to adulthood, Gaucher can be diagnosed in most all age groups. Gaucher is the result of a buildup of certain fatty substances in certain organs, particularly the spleen and liver, causing these organs to become enlarged, affecting their normal function. Type 1 is the most common, and is called non-neuronopathic Gaucher disease because the brain and spinal cord are typically not affected. Types 2 and 3 are known as neuronopathic because they typically do affect the brain and spinal cord. Type 2 is usually life-threatening beginning in infancy. Type 3 also affects the nervous system, but usually progresses more slowly than type 2. One person out of 50,000 - 100,000 is affected by this Gaucher. However, Type 1 is present 1 in every 500 to 1000 people of Ashkenazi Jewish ancestry. In this program, we will meet leading medical researchers who work diligently to better understand and manage this condition, and we'll spend time with Gaucher patients and their families who live with this often debilitating disease.

Above and BeyondAbove and Beyond ABOVE AND BEYOND highlights one of the most compelling escape and survival stories from World War II — that of former Rhode Island Governor Bruce Sundlun (1920-2011). Sundlun, a U.S. Army Air Corps pilot, flew a B-17 bomber nicknamed the "Damn Yankee" on a dozen combat missions during World War II. On December 1, 1943, Sundlun's "unlucky" 13th mission would take him (a Jewish-American) and his crew into Hitler's backyard — the heart of Germany's industrial Ruhr Valley. ABOVE AND BEYOND unfolds as Sundlun's daughter Kara retraces his wartime journey. In Jabbeke, Kara meets author and local historian Luc Packo, as well as witnesses to her father's plane crash, who still celebrate Sundlun's contribution to their country's liberation.

Gift of Life This program which tells the story of WWII veteran Irwin Stovroff, 92, a bombardier in a B-24 Libertator, who was shot down on his last mission over Nazi occupied France and later confined to a POW camp for allied airmen in Germany. He was segregated to a Jewish section of the camp under constant threat of death and appalling conditions to finally being libertated by Soviet Cossacks. After a successful career in business, Irwin retired and started volunteering to help other POW's to receive their pensions. After being informed that the U.S. Government doesn't provide funds to train service dogs for injured veterans returning from the recent wars, he began to raise money to provide highly trained dogs without cost to the veterans. The documentary shows the dramatic difference a dog can make in the life of a young veteran afflicted with Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome or Traumatic Brain Injury. In many cases, it provides the veteran with reasons to choose life over commiting suicide. The Gift of Life produced by film maker Lou Molina, was recently honored as an Audience favorite at the Reds Festival, FT. Lauderdale, FL.

America's Generations With Chuck Underwood Millennials: The New World" (born between 1982 and 1996 -- and still coming) Whenever American youth - of ANY generation - come of age during some "revolution" that creates widespread and presumably permanent change - Depression, War, Prosperity, Social Activism, Family Breakdown, and in the case of Millennials the Technology Revolution - there is ALWAYS good and bad to come from it. Sure enough, Mils possess good and bad qualities because of tech. They've come of age nurtured, coddled, and protected by extreme Over-Parenting, which has delivered good and bad. Chuck will explain that they're going to be a great career generation but are driving their bosses nuts right now. Flawed sense of entitlement, unrealistic expectations. But this generation has lots of Boomer in them, which makes sense because many of them have Boomer parents: idealistic; empowered; engaged; cocky; sassy; think they're gonna change the world for the better, so they probably will. Battered by The Great Recession. Permanently re-defining what it is like to live life in one's 20's, and it has a name: Extended Adolescence.

A collection of quirky characters and personalities emerge throughout the documentary: the 10 contestants and their families and friends; the judges, who don't always agree on who should win; the Longwood Gardens curators and historians; and the competition host, Michael Barone, a popular NPR personality, host and senior executive producer of the weekly radio program Pipe Dreams.

JOHN PORTMAN VISITS FALLINGWATER As a young graduate student, John Portman — considered one of America's most daring and influential living architects — met the great Frank Lloyd Wright and asked the master for his secret. Wright simply advised him to "go seek [Ralph Waldo] Emerson." Portman followed that advice throughout his career, and in the fall of 2012, he decided to go seek Wright. In a new special, Portman brings architects from his firm to visit Frank Lloyd Wright's Fallingwater, in southwestern Pennsylvania, for an informal master class and case study. The visit marks Portman's first time seeing Wright's masterwork. Together, the architects explore the commissioning, design and construction of the house, marvel at its distinctive architectural features, and ruminate about Wright's passion and vision. Contemporary and archival footage reveals the unique features of this iconic structure — its cantilevered design, covered walkways, numerous hearths, glass "corners" and natural building materials.
