Liquid Assets

Liquid Assets, a ninety-minute documentary, tells the story of essential infrastructure systems: water, wastewater, and stormwater. These systems, some in the ground for more than 100 years, provide a critical public health function and are essential for economic development and growth. Largely out of sight and out of mind, these aging systems have not been maintained, and some estimates suggest this is the single largest public works endeavor in our nation's history. Exploring the history, engineering challenges, and political and economic realities in urban and rural locations, the documentary provides an understanding of the hidden assets that support our way of life. Locations featured in the documentary include Atlanta, Boston, Herminie (Pennsylvania), Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Milwaukee, New York City, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, and Washington, D.C. ©2008 WPSU. 90 min

Why We Dance: The Story of THON (DVD Edition)

For the first time ever, audiences will get a behind-the-scenes look at the largest student-run philanthropy in the world when Penn State Public Broadcasting presents the documentary "Why We Dance: The Story of THON." The 60-minute documentary introduces viewers to Four Diamonds families, the children and families living with pediatric cancer, while following Penn State THON student volunteers as they plan and carry out fundraising events and share special experiences with their adopted THON families. Since 1977, Penn State and the Four Diamonds Fund have shared the same goal: to eradicate pediatric cancer. Filming for the documentary began in February 2011 to capture the year-round planning that goes into this no-sitting, no-sleeping phenomenon known as THON. A portion of every sale goes toward THON's fundraising efforts to support the Four Diamonds Fund. ©2012 WPSU. 57 min
