Through The Past (#101) Duration: 24:12 STEREO (Secondary audio: none)

Wherever we go, the past is never far behind. We explore four stories that connect us to times gone by. A family business that started a major fast food innovation, a man trying to keep a legacy alive, a muralist who keeps the iconic images of yesteryear around for generations to come and the fragility of life is examined through the memories we keep, and the ones we forget.
