No Limits (Episode #207H)

KQED Life: Sun, Aug 25, 2013 -- 1:00 PM

How World Records are Broken - Motivated by the stories we do every week, Growing Bolder CEO Marc Middleton got back in the pool for the first time in 35 years. That was two years ago. Today, Marc is a member of Rowdy Gaines' Blu Frog Masters Team and now, the Froggers have something to croak about. World War II's Fading Memories - There aren't many people like Bill Coleman. There used to be, but World War II vets are vanishing. It's why their stories are so important. Not just for their first-hand accounts, but also to ensure the lessons they learned don't just fade into history. Come Play With Us - From fast cars to talking water -- yes, you read that right -- we're showing you the coolest new games and rides at the annual International Association of Amusement Parks and Attractions expo. You won't see this stuff anywhere else ... yet! Triathlete Tony Handler Tony Handler isn't supposed to be here. Twenty-five years ago, he was diagnosed with a rare form of pancreatic cancer and given two years to live. That same year, he completed his first triathlon. After that, the cancer attacked his liver, prostate and thyroid glands but he's beat them all back. His story will inspire you to keep on fighting, no matter what life throws your way.

Quiet Confidence (Episode #206H)

KQED Life: Sun, Aug 18, 2013 -- 1:00 PM

Discover Your Inner Sex Symbol - The expression "less is more" has never been more true. Women are taking it off, to turn it back on! Boudoir photography is hot, in more ways that one! And it's not just those young, skinny 20-somethings, it's women in mid-life and beyond who are giving their all, well, just about, to prove that age is irrelevant! Celebrating 50 Years of Skydiving History - On August 16, 1960, Air Force Capt. Joe Kittinger rode a helium balloon to 102,800 feet -- the very edge of space -- and jumped. Fifty years later, to commemorate man's longest leap, Kittinger became the first inductee into the National Skydiving Museum Hall of Fame. Tracing Your Family Tree - Ever wonder where you came from? Digging up your family tree's roots can help you see a more clear future. We'll take a look at how technology is making it easier than ever to find out who you really are! Bobby Goldsboro: Musical Colors - In 1968 while Joplin, Hendrix, the Doors and Jefferson Airplane were singing about sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll, Bobby Goldsboro was singing about "Honey." After a career in which he sold more than 35 million records, hosted a national TV show, wrote six best-selling children's books and produced a national PBS show, you'd think the soon-to-be 70 Goldsboro would be winding down. Think again.
