Words -- It's almost impossible to imagine a world without words, but the program tries to do just that. It meets a woman who taught a 27-year-old man the first words of his life, hears a firsthand account of what it feels like to have the language center of your brain wiped out by a stroke, and retraces the birth of a brand new language 30 years ago.

Global Energy and Innovations -- What is the best "energy mix" for the United States? The program discusses how the energy community in the U.S. has debated the need for a balance between oil, gas, and renewables. How are India and China, with their own booming populations and increasing energy needs, planning out their own energy needs? The program also discusses energy technologies being developed at MIT that are shaping future technologies -- and being exported to the oil-rich Middle East.

Brides and Children -- Wars create poverty conditions and a surplus of dispossessed women and children. In the past 50 years, many Asian women have married American service men and many Asian children have been adopted and sent to the U.S. The program focuses on Asian immigrants who immediately become part of an American family -- women from Japan, Vietnam, and Korea married to American servicemen and children adopted from Korea, Vietnam, and China.
