    Alan Alda in Scientific American Frontiers [#1209] Body Building This episode is about the remarkable advances being made to repair and replace damaged human body parts. It will tell the story behind one of 2001's biggest medical developments, when a totally self-contained artificial heart called the Abiocor was first implanted into human patients, replacing their own failing hearts and prolonging their lives. Alan visits Robert Langer's lab at MIT where progress is being made in growing tissue for body parts like livers, heart muscle, cartilage and eye retina. Also at MIT, Alan takes a look at the innovative "liver chip," a microscopic array of living liver cells that are the first step in modeling all the key functions of the body on the lab bench. The program reports on efforts at the Miami Project to Cure Paralysis and at Washington University in St. Louis to grow new nerve cells and help injured spinal cords to heal themselves. And Alan goes to the Cleveland Metrohealth Center to meet some courageous paralyzed volunteers as they test out Functional Electrical Stimulation (FES) systems, a technology that bypasses the damaged spine to send electric signals directly to arm and leg muscles, allowing individuals to walk, grip objects, and to literally stand tall once more. duration 56:46   STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: DVI)
  • 7:00 am
    Inventing LA: The Chandlers and Their Times This groundbreaking documentary traces the explosive emergence of multi-ethnic, modern Los Angeles during the single-family reign of four publishers of the Los Angeles Times.
