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

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.
