    Calling My Children Gail Farrow, a devoted mother and wife, died when she was just 27. She left behind four young sons, Ronald Jr., Frank, Kenny and Benny, and her husband Ronald. David Binder began photographing Gail and her family in 1987, documenting Gail's last year of life and her family's early adjustment to continuing without her. With insight and honesty, his film and photographs explore the pieces Gail left-photographs, letters, guidance and memories... Twenty years after her death, Gail's hopes for her family collide with the reality of their lives. Calling My Children is a testament of a family's life and a mother's love. duration 29:08   STEREO TVG

During his brief stop in Jordan, the pope has invited Syrian refugees and disabled young people to join him for a meal at the Jordan River Baptism site. Located near the Dead Sea across the border from Israel, the site is revered by many Christians as the place where John the Baptist lived and where Jesus was baptized. Although there are other baptism sites inside Israel, archeological ruins dating back to the 5th century were discovered here after the 1994 peace treaty between Jordan and Israel. The area has now been opened for pilgrims and tourists. Kim Lawton recently visited Jordan's baptism site and tells its story.

    Nature [#3108] My Bionic Pet The animals of the world may increasingly need our help with big issues like preserving their habitat or species conservation. But sometimes individual animals need our help as well. Left disabled without fins, flippers, beaks, or tails because of disease, accidents, or even human cruelty, these unfortunate creatures need what amounts to a miracle if they are to survive. Luckily for them, sometimes miracles do happen. Amazing prosthetics made possible by the latest engineering and technology are able to provide just what they need, and scientists are finding that innovations created in the process are benefitting both animals and humans. We will meet these inspiring animals and the remarkable individuals whose work has helped them live their lives again. duration 56:46   STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: none)
