"As teen pregnancy rates rise in the U.S., this ABC News program follows four families coping with the day-to-day realities of the issue. Case studies come from Massachusetts, where a teen couple tries to raise their six-month-old son together; from Kentucky, where a 14-year-old girl attends a school designed for pregnant teens; from Washington State, where a senior quarterback has impregnated his school's homecoming queen, subsequently ignoring her; and from Texas, where a young mother in labor cries out for her own mom when her contractions intensify. The program also studies two disparate schools of thought on combating teen pregnancy--one highlighting abstinence, the other safe sex."--Container

Six pairs of people are deposited in separate locations all over New York City and ordered to find each other -- without being told where to look. This program presents an intriguing psychological puzzle involving participants who must join up -- somewhere, somehow -- in a city of eight million people. Incorporating principles from the mathematical discipline known as game theory the program shows how envisioning the plans and intentions of others, when utilizing the scantiest of evidence and the most basic inferences, can produce a viable strategy. In the 2nd part of the program, how game theory and "credible threats" influence behavior-- five overweight people are challenged to lose 15 lbs in two months in order to prevent photographs of themselves in small swimsuits from airing on tv
Primetime( Visual )

in English and held by 40 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Part 1 explores how people react - or choose not to act or react - to situations that drive us all crazy ; like people talking on their cell phones too long, out of control kids, out of control grown-ups, situations that cry out for action, and the question becomes : "What would you do?" In Part 2, a socialite, a businessman, a boxer from the inner city and a Broadway dancer - four people with completely different lives connected by nothing - accept Primetime's six degrees of separation challenge. The program explores whether these total strangers can be linked to one another through a human chain of friends and acquaintances across social, racial and geographic barriers. In Part 3, game theory was tested in two experiments. In one experiment six teams are challenged to find each other in Washington, D.C. In the other experiment, people had to lose 15 pounds in two months or risk public humiliation. In Part 4, again the question is asked, What would you do? How will people react to bullies ganging up on an innocent kid or a couple fighting in the park? Will dressing the bullies tougher or changing the race of the fighting couple affect how people respond? What will people do when they see a stranger who has had too much to drink attempt to get in a car? Will it make a difference when it's a mom with her children? When customers at a deli get back too much money from a cashier, will they say anything? Then, how will passengers handle a taxi driver who goes on an extensive racist rant filled with hateful ethnic slurs? Finally, in Part 5 Primetime re-created a famous experiment, The Milgram Experiment, to understand how ordinary people can perform unthinkable acts. Would ordinary people today still follow orders even if they believed their actions were causing someone else pain?
