Description: 

Screening & discussion of Cancer: The Emperor of All Maladies.  A three-part, six-hour documentary directed by award-winning filmmaker Barak Goodman and executive produced by Ken Burns, based on the Pulitzer Prize-winning book The Emperor of All Maladies: A Biography of Cancer by Siddhartha Mukherjee, M.D. This “biography” of cancer covers its first documented appearances thousands of years ago through the epic battles in the 20th century to cure, control and conquer cancer. The project matches the epic scale of cancer, reshaping the way the public sees cancer and stripping away some of the fear and misunderstanding that has long surrounded it. The series is a both a riveting historical documentary, an engrossing and intimate vérité film that focuses on current patients, and a scientific report.

Screening & discussion of Last Days In Vietnam: American Experience. During the chaotic final days of the Vietnam War, as the North Vietnamese Army closed in on Saigon, the South Vietnamese resistance crumbled. The United States had only a skeleton crew of diplomats and military operatives still in the country. With a communist victory inevitable and the U.S. readying to withdraw, many Americans on the ground worried their South Vietnamese allies and friends faced imprisonment or death at the hands of the approaching North Vietnamese. With the clock ticking and the city under fire, a number of heroic Americans took matters into their own hands, engaging in unsanctioned and often makeshift operations in a desperate effort to save as many South Vietnamese as possible.

Owl Banding
Body: 

We go owl banding with Rodney Olsen, an instructor for the Diversified Occupation Program. It’s not every day that a Vermont student has the opportunity to capture owls. But for kids in Addison County's Diversified Occupations Program, capturing and banding raptors is a regular part of a science curriculum that stresses "knowledge gained through experience."

Lakers on the fly
Body: 

Lake Champlain's deep, windswept waters are loaded with lake trout. Most anglers pursue them by using downriggers to troll lures far below the surface, but every fall there’s a brief period when they congregate in huge numbers near the surface and close to shore. And for at least one die-hard fisherman, it offers a unique opportunity to catch a lunker laker by casting a fly.

Mentored Hunt
Body: 

Hunting was never a tradition in Gina’s family but since moving to Vermont it’s an activity that she has always been curious about. Thanks to the relatively new mentored license offered by the Vermont Fish and Wildlife Department, newcomers to the sport of hunting can give it a try before receiving the hunter safety certification needed to hunt on your own. Gina’s mentor took her under his wing on a fall turkey hunt for an experience that she’ll never forget.
