LAST ABORTION CLINIC. 2005. DVD. 60 min.
"The headlines today are filled with speculation about changes in the U.S. Supreme Court and what those changes might mean for abortion--an issue that has divided the country for more than 30 years. Heated rhetoric from both sides continues to be heard in courtrooms and on the campaign trail. But while attention is often focused on the arguments, there is another story playing out in local communities. Pro-life advocates have waged a successful campaign to reduce abortions in many places throughout the country. By using state laws to regulate and limit abortion and by creating their own clinics to offer alternatives to women, they have changed the facts on the ground. FRONTLINE investigates the steady decline in the number of physicians and clinics performing abortions, and focuses on local political battles in states like Mississippi, where only a single clinic performs the controversial procedure."--Container.

THE PARKINSON’S ENIGMA. 2002. DVD. 47 min.
(Producer) Using the illness of Michael J. Fox as a springboard, this program theorizes that most Parkinson's cases are the result not of heredity but of viral attacks and environmental toxins that severely damage the substantia negra, the "gearbox of the brain." Fox, Oliver Sacks, neurologists from The Parkinson's Institute and The University of British Columbia, and others share insights drawn from their knowledge of Parkinson's, encephalitis lethargica, gum disease, and MPTP poisoning that, taken together, make a compelling argument for linking Parkinson's to neuronal trauma. Therapies involving neuronal grafting from fetal tissue, retinal pigmented epithelial cell implantation, and transplantation of adult stem cells are discussed as well.
