Renowned journalist Bill Moyers interviews dozens of terminally ill patients and caregivers in an emotional and pragmatic look at the way Americans face death. The series offers illuminating perspectives on the sometimes controversial ethical, medical, and economic forces that can drive a person's choices about death.
[1] Living with Dying : Describes the search for new ways of thinking and talking about dying. Forgoing the usual reluctance that most Americans show toward speaking about death, patients and medical professionals alike come forward to examine the end of life with honesty, courage, and even humor, demonstrating that dying can be an incredibly rich experience for both the terminally ill and their loved ones.
[2] A Different Kind of Care: Presents important strides being made in the area of palliative care at pioneering institutions such as New York's Mt. Sinai Hospital and Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center. These advances are bringing peace to those who fear that they will be a burden to loved ones, will suffer needlessly, or will be abandoned in their hour of greatest need.
[3] A Death of One's Own : Unravels the complexities underlying the many choices at the end of life, including the bitter debate over physician-assisted suicide. Three patients, their families, and their doctors discuss some of the hardest decisions, including how to pay for care, what constitutes humane treatment, and how to balance dying and dignity.
[4] A Time to Change : Presents crusading medical professionals including staff members of the Balm of Gilead Project in Birmingham, Alabama, who have dedicated themselves to improving end-of-life care by changing America's overburdened health system.
