Too little iron in the blood can lead to fatigue, lower the immune system,
and can cause the serious condition of anemia. But having too much iron,
called hemochromatosis - or - iron overload is also a problem, creating
poisonous conditions for the liver, heart and pancreas. It can also cause
cancer, heart arrhythmias and cirrhosis of the liver. Iron overload can be
caused by genetic factors, and such is the case with sickle cell disease,
affecting an estimated 70, 000 to 100,000 US citizens, the majority being
African Americans. Iron overload is also prevalent in the disease called
thalassemia - a group of genetic blood disorders. People with this disease
cannot make normal hemoglobin to produce healthy red blood cells. If
diagnosed and treated before organ damage has occurred iron overload
patients can often grow and develop normally, with relatively normal heart
and liver functions.
When the muscles and ligaments supporting a woman's pelvic organs weaken, the pelvic organs can slip out of place and create a bulge in the vagina. This is known as pelvic organ prolapse. Women most commonly develop pelvic organ prolapse years after childbirth, after a hysterectomy or after menopause. This condition may cause symptoms ranging from mild to severe, and can pose a major detriment to a woman's quality of life. Although there are known risks associated with some of the surgical procedures to address Pelvic Organ Prolapse, it can often be effectively addressed by properly trained medical professionals who specialize in this important area of medicine.

Ballyfin: Portrait of a Irish Country House
Saturday June 25th at 7:00 p.m.
In the tradition of great house documentaries, Ballyfin: A Portrait of An
Irish Country House is a new special featuring an eye-popping Irish estate
with nearly 200 years of fascinating history. In 1823, twenty years before
the Great Famine that ravaged Ireland and twenty years after the Act of
Union that transformed the fractious relationship between Ireland and Great
Britain, an Anglo-Irish aristocrat built a magnificent mansion. For 100
years, it was a family home until WWI and Ireland's own Civil War ended
their way of life, as we all saw unfold on Downton Abbey. For the next 80
years, it housed a Catholic school, until the upkeep became overwhelming.
Fred Krehbiel, a businessman and art collector from Chicago with strong
Irish ties stepped in in 2002 and has undertaken an ambitious and
painstaking restoration of Ballyfin. The house has been restored to it's
original, resplendent condition, creating the impression that the family
has only recently taken leave. It is now regarded as one of the best hotels
in the world.

Treblinka's Last Witness
May 22nd at 3:00 p.m.
Samuel Willenberg, now 92 years old, is the last living survivor of the
Treblinka death camp in Nazi-occupied Poland, where an estimated 900,000 Jews were murdered in a 13-month period at the height of World War II. Still haunted 70 years later by the horrors he witnessed as a young forced laborer, Samuel has immortalized his harrowing experiences in a series of bronze sculptures of the tragic victims who dwell indelibly in his memory like ghosts. In TREBLINKA'S LAST WITNESS, the sculptures, together with archival footage and photographs from the period, illustrate Samuel's riveting narrative, telling a singularly powerful and personal story of the annihilation of Polish Jewry in the death camps built by the Germans to carry out Hitler's infamous "Final Solution." As a prisoner at Treblinka,
he witnessed the death of his two beloved sisters, Itta and Tamara in the
gas chambers, among countless others. In his sculptures, the most poignant of these individual tragedies are brought back to life. TREBLINKA'S LAST WITNESS focuses on one man's personal odyssey to reflect the enormity of the genocide inflicted upon Poland's 3.5 million Jews, at the time the world's largest Jewish community, and seven times greater than the Jewish population of pre-war Germany. Samuel Willenberg's story is one of survival against staggering odds and though heart-rending and horrifying, it is ultimately one of triumph.

Egypt Beyond The Pyramids
Sunday, June 19th & 26th at 4:00 p.m.
If you read the tourist brochures, Egypt is all about pharaohs and pyramids. If you watch the evening news, it's full of conflict and extremism. Neither could be further from the truth. Knowing that conflict was brewing once again in Egypt, Karin Muller took a huge risk. She set out to film a documentary on Egyptian life - in the middle of a revolution. For three months, Karin traveled alone from the upper Nile to the Red Sea, sharing the day-to-day lives of ordinary Egyptians. Through the eyes of fishermen and bakers, street dancers and Cairo's kamikaze taxi drivers, Karin discovered a side of Egypt that few foreigners get to see. Along the way she was invited to join in Muslim festivals, weekly animal markets, and into the tents during the second fateful revolution that brought all Egyptians together and then tore them apart. Muller survived the military coup, only to be attacked by a mob in a remote village in the Nile delta. Seriously injured, she flew back to the States for emergency surgery. Egypt Beyond the Pyramids reveals the many faces of this complicated land, where a fundamentally kind and generous people struggle to emerge from six decades of brutal dictatorship, fear, and propaganda.
Communities As Classrooms
Sunday, June 19th at 5:30 p.m.
Communities as Classrooms, follows producer Bob Gliner (Schools That Change Communities, Lessons From the Real World, Barefoot College) as he introduces a profound education initiative at four schools in El Salvador in the Fall of 2015. While schools in El Salvador largely resemble those in the United States, with test driven classes, fragmented curriculum and traditional lecture style teaching techniques, largely divorced from real world problems, Bob has K-12 students build an interdisciplinary curriculum around solving problems in their surrounding communities - motivated by the students themselves deciding what those problems are. Communities as Classrooms traces the process week to week over a two month period as students evolve from disinterested bystanders in their classroom experiences, to active members of a newly thriving democracy. From passive recipients of education mandates, the newly invigorated curriculum leads not only to a vibrant student driven educational experience, and the solving of real world problems, but transforms the way teachers, administrators, parents, and other community members look at the role students play in the larger society. As El Salvador makes efforts to build on this education success story, by potentially training all of its teachers to do community based education, Americans might want to consider this option as well as we look for more effective and creative ways to educate students and revitalize our democracy.
Slow Way Home
Sunday, June 26th at 2:00 p.m.
The way children travel to school structures daily life for families around the world-but the means differs dramatically. In Japan 98 percent of children walk to school every day, unaccompanied by a parent. In the United States just 13 percent of children walk or bike to school, and most are driven to school by a parent. The Slow Way Home explores this divergence, examining how American families have largely given up on keeping our streets and public spaces safe enough for children, while Japanese communities have mobilized to keep their streets safe and walkable, not only for children but for everyone in society. Seen through both a historical and contemporary framing, The Slow Way Home is an uplifting examination of differences in culture that provides both insight into a distressing trend in American society and simultaneously offers hope for change.

meets with a patient, Mark the constable, who confesses an embarrassing
dilemma - he fears his lack of success with the ladies has something to do
with size, and wants to hear the doctor's opinion of what is "normal."
Later, Martin makes a house call to the park ranger, Stewart James. The two seem to have a lot in common until Stewart introduces Martin to his
"friend" Anthony, who just happens to be a six-foot, red ... squirrel!

her hero after he puts her dislocated shoulder back, and stops the
agonizing pain she has been suffering. There's romance in the air between

The tourist season has arrived in Portwenn. Disgruntled by the invasion of
holidaymakers, Martin grimaces as he makes his way through the crowds. Then he notices an attractive woman, and stops to stare ... at her chest! She can't believe it when he says he'd like to examine her chest. Martin was
actually trying to warn the woman about the dangers of sunbathing for fear
of skin cancer, but his usual abrupt and quirky manner has caused offense.
Gossip about the blood phobia which forced Martin to terminate his
brilliant career as a surgeon seems to have spread round the village like
wild fire. Two patients in the surgery can't resist mentioning the 'b' word
to Martin. Then he gets an urgent call from the pub. Bert has had a
terrible accident while working there, and he's bleeding profusely. The
sight of blood pouring from Bert's wound begins to trigger the all too
familiar panic attacks for Martin. But on closer examination he realizes
the blood is actually tomato ketchup!
