For years, the brain was terra incognito for surgeons, but recent advances have made it possible to correct many brain disorders through surgery. THE STORM WITHIN ventures inside the operating theater where pediatric surgeon Dr. Ben Carson corrects a rare brain disease that causes more than 100 seizures a day. Witness the operation, and trace the discoveries and breakthroughs that have opened the brain up to surgeons like Dr. Carson. As the global environmental movement gains strength, innovative programs like the one developed by Dr. Bill Stapp are at the forefront. Stapp has created an international river-monitoring system conducted by children. In CHILDREN OF THE RIVER, travel to Walpole Island, a Native-American reservation in Canada, to see this innovative program at work. The children of Walpole have discovered contamination in their waters that appears to be coming from chemicals leeching into the water from across the river. This situation serves as a model for combining grass-roots activism with wide-ranging oversight to help pursue polluters and protect nature.
