Joan Kramer and David Heeley drop by to discuss In the Company of Legends, their behind-the-scenes book about the marvelous movie star documentaries they've worked on together. Starting with their award-winning profiles of Fred Astaire in 1980, Kramer and Heeley produced film portraits of the lives and careers of many Hollywood legends including Spencer Tracy, Katharine Hepburn, Fred Astaire, Jimmy Stewart, Henry Fonda, Paul Newman, Judy Garland and Humphrey Bogart, This dynamic duo established a reputation for finding the un-findable, persuading the reluctant, and maintaining unique relationships long after the end credits rolled. This interview is a must-hear for true movie addicts everywhere!
Robert Osborne, host of Turner Classic Movies, calls In the Company of Legends one of the best reasons ever for curling up with a book, and talk show host Dick Cavett says the Kramer/Heeley memoir was so hard to put down that he ate with one hand while reading it. Osborne goes on to praise the book because it’s about dazzling personalities told by people who actually knew the celebrities they write about, worked with them and, further, socialized with them, aware of their foibles and strengths from first-hand knowledge, not hearsay.
Among the Kramer and Heeley documentaries are: Katharine Hepburn: All About Me; Bacall on Bogart; The John Garfield Story; The Adventures of Errol Flynn; The Spencer Tracey Legacy; James Stewart: A Wonderful Life; Fonda on Fonda; Fred Astaire: Puttin’ on His Top Hat; Fred Astaire: Change Partners and Dance.

in Weight Loss
It seems there's a new documentary addressing the growing concerns of obesity and poor health for adults and your youth. The documentary gets released and people talk about it and agree with the claims, but still obesity rates continue to climb with kids and adults. WHY? Simply put, none of these documentaries are providing a solution. They're basically adding to the propaganda and cashing in on the interest to undercover the truth for why we are gaining weight and finding it difficult to lose it. In this show Robert Ferguson tells you about his upcoming documentary and sheds light on the reasons behind why these documentaries continue to fail.

Director Skinner, will be joined on air by two patients featured in his upcoming documentary "Dialysis Diaries".
Bill inherited polycystic kidney disease from his father, and has a 50-percent chance of passing this genetic fate to one of his daughters. His situation inspired him to become a spokesperson for PKD awareness, going so far as to dress up as “Kenny the Kidney” at the Walk for PKD each spring.
A year after he was declared ‘GQ Man of the Year’ for his work against gender violence, Jimmie suffered a heart attack and renal failure. Only in his early 40s, this sad twist of fate has forced him to live with constant uncertainty. We follow Jimmie as he struggles through painful dialysis treatments, searches desperately for an organ donor, and fights to get his transplant covered by Medicare.

Continuing our coordination with Citizens Commission on Human Rights (CCHR) we are pleased to have Dr. Linda Lagemann as our guest this evening. We will also be discussing the recent passage of a bill in New Mexico to protect children from forced drugging and to prevent CPS from abducting a child from their home because parents refused to drug their child.
Dr. Linda Lagemann is a clinical psychologist with 25 years experience in the field. After observing that the “mental health” field had become dominated by psychiatric labels and drugs and was doing more harm than help, she closed her practice. She now devotes herself full-time to efforts to reform the field and inform people about the disability caused by psychiatric drugs, especially when given to children. She has been interviewed on radio stations across the country and internationally and has been featured in two documentaries.
Dr. Lagemann is a Commissioner for Citizens Commission on Human Rights (CCHR) (www.cchrint.org). She is also an Associate Clinical Professor at the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF) in the Department of Medicine (3-time recipient of the UCSF Annual Teaching Excellence Award).
