Caring at the End (#117) Duration: 26:54 STEREO (Secondary audio: none)

Stories from North Carolina, California, and Ohio. As our loved ones near the end of their lives, the difficulty in comforting them reverberates in the lives of family members, caretakers, and communities: a woman with young children of her own must find balance as she cares for her ailing mother; a look at the intimate bond between patient and caretaker; the story of a man who personifies "in sickness and in health"; and how the power of music can awaken sleeping minds.

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.

Finding a sense of place and purpose in four stories: a young girl seeks solace and safety in her favorite hiding place; a family of native descent returns to the land of their forefathers to learn about the past and connect with the present; a whimsical artist who has worked for 35 years creating a visual feast of one of his favorite places; a silent film star tours the world he knows; and a lifelong Chicagoan sees his town in a whole new way thanks to a theatre group from the other side of the world.
