The Shadow Factory

Rumors of the National Security Agency's secret programs to spy on American citizens have stoked fear and outrage over the past several years, while issues of its legality have befuddled Congress and the courts, but the sheer mechanics of the operation—how it works, how pervasive it is, and whose communications are being tapped—have remained largely unknown, until now. NSA expert and bestselling author James Bamford is here to talk about his new book and the documentary it inspired.

My Father, My Brother, and Me - Understanding Parkinson's

Frontline correspondent and radio host Dave Iverson was given the same news heard by his father and brother years before -- he had Parkinson's disease.  To help himself understand and cope with the disease, he began to explore the science, ethics and controversy surrounding Parkinson's.  His documentary "My Father, My Brother, and Me," airing tonight on PBS, is the culmination of his talks with scientists, a geneticist, and fellow sufferers, including actor Michael J. Fox and writer Michael Kinsley.
