Truly CA: Our State, Our Stories Previous Broadcasts

Sons of a Gun (Episode #805H)

KQED Plus: Thu, May 30, 2013 -- 11:00 PM

Lance, Craig and Ubaldo live with schizophrenia. They also live with Larry, their alcoholic caregiver/"dad". And even though none of them is related by blood, they've lived together as a family for 20 years. This documentary follows this unique family as they get evicted, move into a cramped motel room, joke around, and scramble to find a new home before self-destructing.

Firestorm (Episode #602Z)

KQED 9: Sun, May 19, 2013 -- 6:00 PM

Every minute in the US, an ambulance gets turned away from an emergency room because hospitals are simply too full. In Los Angeles, where the wait time in some ERs is as long as 48 hours, the entire 911 system is being dragged down in ways that are alarming. This documentary reveals the shocking reality of LAFD's Station 65 - where paramedics run themselves ragged because 911 has become the speed dial for a collapsing health care system. And sometimes the consequences are deadly. By Julie Winokur.
