    Women Outward Bound WOMEN OUTWARD BOUND profiles the first group of young women to participate in an Outward Bound survival school course in 1965, and chronicles their experiences in the wild. It also captures how one month in the woods taught them they could do more than they ever thought possible. During their experience, the young women forged a special bond, and at a reunion 47 years later, the group reminisce about the lessons they learned and the memories they made, with some surprising revelations. They didn't realize it at the time, but they were a part of changing the course of history. The documentary takes the viewer on a journey over many decades with rare archival footage, family home videos, photos and stunning aerial footage of the lush yet challenging Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness. In the end, this film proves that girls could always handle the difficult challenges given by nature-they just needed to be given the chance. duration 56:46   STEREO TVPG

    Storied Life of Millie Benson Athlete, adventurer and author: Mildred Wirt Benson, began her career as a ghostwriter in the late 1920s, authoring 23 of the first 30 Nancy Drew novels and was responsible for the development of the famous young character as an independent, bold and risk-taking female sleuth. Using archival photographs and interviews, the documentary traces Millie's days as a student at the University of Iowa, a children's book author, a court reporter and a weekly columnist Toledo, Ohio, newspapers. As this program illustrates, Benson embodied many of the attributes that she had used to describe her most famous literary character, Nancy Drew. In her 60s, Millie earned a private pilot's license and flew her own plane across country. She was also an amateur archaeologist and explorer. Millie Benson's story is fascinating because she was a pioneer on so many fronts. Not only was she an accomplished author and journalist, but she excelled at athletics, and later in life, as a pilot and explorer. While Millie Benson's role as the author of Nancy Drew wasn't recognized until nearly 50 years after they were published, she became an instant celebrity in 1993 when she was inducted into the University of Iowa's Hall of Fame. At the same time, her work was celebrated with a Nancy Drew conference that received national attention. duration 26:44   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
