    KQED NEWSROOM [#411H] Bay Area Arts "Dead Reckoning" The impact of climate change, from rising sea levels to rising temperatures is often expressed through charts and data. But one Bay Area choreographer wants to help audiences see and feel climate change from a new perspective. Producer Sheraz Sadiq takes us backstage with ODC Dance company's production of "Dead Reckoning." Sonja Hinrichsen's snow drawings Imagine working days at a time to create a massive work of public art, only to have it disappear overnight. That's a risk Oakland-based artist Sonja Hinrichsen has learned to embrace, working with snow as her canvas. Producer Lori Halloran and photographer Blake McHugh strapped on their snowshoes to follow Hinrichsen as she attempted her first snow drawing in the high Sierras. Jim Campbell How simple can an image become and still be recognizable? That's what visual artist Jim Campbell explores in his work, using thousands of LED lights. From up close, the lights seem to blink at random, but take a step back and your eyes begin to connect the dots. Producer Monica Lam and photographer Aaron Drury go inside Campbell's workshop. Threshold Choir For more than a decade, the Threshold Choir has been using music to ease the journey through the final days of life. They write and perform original music to people in hospice care.

    I'll Have It My Way with Hattie Bryant As much as we all want to believe we can live forever, we all know deep down that it simply can't be true. From this program viewers learn that there are things each of us can do to live fully, all the way to the end. Anyone who is willing to take four simple steps now, while healthy, can minimize if not avoid entirely, the pain, suffering, confusion and disagreements that can arise when end-of-life healthcare wishes are not clearly spelled out. Americans need this information because 70% say they want to die peacefully surrounded by friends and family ... while actually 70% are dying in institutions surrounded by strangers. Few people choose to contemplate critical illness or the inevitability of death until their time comes. Because possibilities are rarely discussed, many people are unprepared or unable to make critical end-of-life decisions and spend their last days in over-medicalized and unnecessarily painful and protracted situations. Breaking through the taboo of discussing death, Hattie Bryant shows that we have choices. Inspired by the peaceful death her mother was almost denied, Bryant began gathering information from national experts in palliative care, geriatrics, oncology, bio-ethics, psychology, and spirituality. I'll Have It My Way credibly and passionately presents the case for personal responsibility in the healthcare, legal, and procedural decisions that all of us must make - if they are not to be made for us. By making our wishes known and communicating them effectively, we remove the burden from our loved ones of making our choices for us that will enable us to live our lives more fully to the end. I'll Have It My Way provides useful information and a thought-provoking four-step guide that takes the viewer on a journey of discovery to learn what a life well-lived means to them. duration 1:26:56   STEREO TVG

    Suze Orman's Financial Solutions for You We all have financial issues and problems. Suze Orman's latest special sharply focuses on her helping individual viewers "find financial solutions for you." As always, Suze's advice is based not just on numbers, but on a critical understanding of ourselves and our emotional needs. The special's central theme is that our financial decision-making should be guided by an understanding of "the goal of money." As Suze perceptively defines it: "The goal of money is to make you feel secure." Our financial solutions should work to fulfill that goal. In addition, Suze stresses the importance of making financial decisions that you feel comfortable with. Financial problems are caused when you do things with money that do not seem "right" to you, despite pressures and advice from others. duration 1:57:06   STEREO TVG

    Rick Steves' European Easter Taking you on a spring journey through Spain, Slovenia, Italy, and Greece, Rick Steves' European Easter celebrates this 2,000-year-old story in a variety of cultures. Ancient rituals of woolly beasts scaring away winter in Slovenia and elegant, masked Carnival parties in Venice are a prelude to the austerity of Lent. A few weeks later, Palm Sunday crowds fill St. Peter's Square in Rome, and the streets of Sevilla are packed as the Passion of Christ unfolds day by day through Holy Week. The despair of Good Friday gives way to Easter Sunday, when the joy of the Resurrection fills family gatherings, small-town festivals, and churches of every size all across Europe - just as spring floods the world with new life. You'll join villagers blessing olive branches and coming together in age-old processions, and you'll feel the emotion of this special time as Andalusians carry towering parade floats and Greek priests toss showers of flower petals. Exploring a rich and fascinating mix of traditions - from its pagan roots to its glorious finale - Rick Steves' European Easter sheds new light on this timeless holiday. duration 1:27:51
