Utah World War II Stories is a stirring landmark series in five parts. The men and women of "the Greatest Generation" recollect the pivotal events of World War II in this important series from KUED. Utahns tell some of the greatest stories of their lives in The Struggle, Europe, The Pacific and The Home Front and Untold Stories.
Each year in the United States two million women are beaten by their partners, and more than half a million women report being raped or sexually assaulted. For more than a year KUED-Channel 7 producer/director Colleen Casto and writer Mary Dickson went behind the headlines to explore the roots of violence against women. Their powerful documentary film tells the moving stories of women who have been battered, assaulted, and raped, as well as the stories of men who commit these crimes. Also featured are interviews with several nationally recognized experts who look at causes and solutions.
On the ground where musket and cannon thundered 140 years earlier, across the pathways where men marched off to five wars, stands a place transformed today to meet the needs of tomorrow. Once strategically set apart from Salt Lake City and viewed with dread, Fort Douglas is now a global community - the place where athletes from around the world will stay as they compete in the 2002 Olympic Winter Games and Paralympic Games.
It is one of the most mysterious bodies of water on the planet. Within the Great Salt Lake, only brine shrimp, bacteria and algae can survive the harsh, saline waters. Surrounding the shoreline, however, are some of the world's most pristine, ecologically diverse wetlands, which are home to millions of world class migratory birds.
