Featured on the program are: sports broadcaster Dick Vitale; Tom McMillen, former basketball star and Congressman and now co-chair of the President's Council on Physical Fitness; and Lisa Luciano, a New York Times sportswriter
Living longer . aging well( Visual )

1 edition published in 2000 in English and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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.

This program features the stories of exemplary individuals who, despite the inhospitable social climate, are growing older with courage and dignity. (29 minutes)

And if so, how do those core beliefs translate into public policy on issues such as healthcare, poverty, abortion, capital punishment, and euthanasia? This program explores what the late Joseph Cardinal Bernardin called a "consistent ethic of life," explaining how it might be used as a framework for finding common ground between rival interests and how it could be applied to serving the common good

(30 minutes)

The evolution of Chile : prosperity for some( Visual )

1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In just 25 years, Chile has gone from a Marxist state to a dictatorship to a democracy. The transition has strengthened Chile's economy, but not all Chilean citizens have shared in the prosperity. In fact, the divisions between rich and poor have widened, causing critics to question whether democratic capitalism is the right solution. As the scenario unfolds, so do the moral issues surrounding the economic path Chile has chosen. Using Chile as a case study, this program examines these issues, and the difficulties experienced by other Third World nations also riding the tidal wave of post-Cold War economic reforms
