    Misunderstood Epidemic: Depression This program explores the difficulties faced by those coping with varying levels of depression. 12 Americans from all walks of life explain, in their own words, the realities of living with depression: the symptoms, thoughts of suicide, the stress it puts on families and relationships, the loss of ability to work, the stigma associated with it, and the pros and cons of different treatment methods. Their compelling first-person accounts, along with engaging interviews with their family members and friends, reveal how this bio-chemical imbalance cuts across racial, ethnic and socio-economic lines. duration 56:46   STEREO TVG

    Dying to Live Every day in the U.S. about twenty people die waiting for transplant organs, because not enough of us are donors. Dying To Live tells the inspiring stories of four hopeful organ recipients as they struggle to stay alive long enough to reach the top of the long waiting list. The documentary also brings us into the lives of two donors - a young man who dies and leaves a liver to one of the people followed in the documentary, and a courageous woman who makes the remarkable decision to donate a kidney to a person she has never met. Produced over the course of a year and a half in 1080p Hi-Def, Dying To Live has received a HUGO award from the Chicago International Film Festival, a regional Emmy nomination, and an honorable mention award from the Los Angeles International Film Festival. duration 56:13   STEREO TVG

    Alan Alda in Scientific American Frontiers [#1210] A Different Way to Heal? Acupuncture. Herbal remedies. Magnet therapy. Do these and other alternatives to traditional Western medicine really work? Consumers and patients seem to think so; alternative and so-called complementary medicine is now a multi-billion dollar industry. There are lots of claims for the efficacy of such treatments, but very little scientific testing and evidence to support them. This episode will follow research projects and clinical trials that are attempting to test these claims with scientific methods. duration 56:46   STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: DVI)
