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

PA Parade #104: Teachers and Gardeners/Return to Bitumen

Teachers/Gardeners covers a wide range of topics including educational philosophy, administrative strategies, man’s relationship to the environment, religion, gardening and retirement. Return to Bitumen is an account of a coal mining community in northwestern Pennsylvania. Return to Bitumen: Jerry and Shirley Brown work Christmas day. And Easter. And Memorial Day, and Labor Day, and Groundhog Day, and National Peanut Butter Day. Their 62 milk cows don't understand what weekends, holidays, and vacations are all about. Jerry and Shirley farm for a living; 4 a.m. to 9 p.m. and later, 365 days a year. Their investment in land, equipment, and livestock is close to a quarter million dollars; their debts are frequently close to that. Twenty-six dairy farms have gone out of business in "the home valley" in the last 20 years, but the Browns hang on. It is what they know, what they are content with; and they will continue, as long as they can. Produced by P.J. O'Connell for Penn State Television / WPSX-TV.

Water: An Endangered Resource

Pennsylvania is famous for the beauty of its countryside -- the small towns, mountains and farmlands. Yet the land hides an unseen killer, polluted water, resulting from drainage from abandoned coal mines. There are 45,000 miles of streams and lakes in the state, and 2,800 miles are polluted. These aren't the big rivers around cities like Pittsburgh or Scranton. They are small steams and creeks running throughout the Commonwealth. "Water: An Endangered Resource," a Penn State Public Broadcasting production, looks at the problem, the dangers to wildlife, recreation and the economy and what is being done to clean it up. © 2006 WPSU. 57 min.
