New PBS streaming documentary videos

The following PBS documentary videos have been added to the library’s catalog:

The Education of Michelle Rhee (Frontline): Frontline correspondent John Merrow was granted unprecedented access to Michelle Rhee, former chancellor of the Washington D.C. public schools as she attempted to fix a broken school system.

An Original Duckumentary (Nature): There are some 120 species of duck, representing a wide variety of shapes, sizes and behaviors. Some are noisy and gregarious, others shy and elusive. They are familiar animals we think we know. But most of us don’t really know these phenomenal, sophisticated creatures at all. This program follows a wood duck family as a male and female create a bond, migrate together across thousands of miles, nurture and protect a brood of chicks, then come full circle as they head to their wintering grounds.

Poor Kids (Frontline): FRONTLINE spent months following three young girls who are growing up against the backdrop of their families’ struggles against financial ruin. At a time when one in five American kids lives below the poverty line, “Poor Kids” is an is an intimate portrait of the economic crisis as it’s rarely seen, through the eyes of children.

In addition, other new PBS streaming videos have been added to the library’s catalog.
