Although many cultures venerate their elders, looking to them as living repositories of wisdom and experience, America, with its "forever young" self-image, does not. Explores the lack of respect for elders in the United States compared to other cultures and examines ways in which Americans can age well despite the lack of societal support. Lacking that societal support, how are Americans supposed to age well -- to grow older with grace and understanding -- and make life's final decades a meaningful experience? This program features the stories of exemplary individuals who, despite the inhospitable social climate, are growing older with courage and dignity

Life Behind bars( Visual )

Are prisons supposed to rehabilitate criminals? Punish them? Or simply keep them off the streets? And when ex-convicts return to society, as most inevitably do, does their prison experience make them likely to become repentant--or repeat offenders? Tough laws that include mandatory sentences are popular with voters, but they create the need for more and more prisons to handle the increasing number of inmates. The result is a burgeoning public and private industry to build and maintain prison facilities. But who's looking at the larger societal issues? This program explores the current state of prisons in America and examines their conflicting goals
