America ReFramed  "Night School"  Every year, over a million students drop out of high school. They may complete their graduate equivalency degrees, but then they discover they're still struggling to get good jobs.

A Castle In Every Heart: The Arto Monaco Story   The story chronicles the engaging life and work of Arto Monaco (1913-2003), the pioneering designer and gifted storyteller responsible for Santa's Workshop, The Land of Make believe and Old MacDonald's Farm petting zoo. Beginning in the late 1940s, Monaco introduced Americans to a new form of outdoor entertainment - the theme park - and in the ensuing decades, visitors responded by flocking to his parks by the thousands. The program charts Monaco's education at the prestigious Pratt Institute in New York City, his stints as a storyboard artist for Hollywood film studios and as an army recruit during World War II and finally, to his life's work building theme parks.G

Opera Reimagined: Animating The Cunning Little Vixen   In 2014, The Cleveland Orchestra staged a unique production of Leos Janacek's The Cunning Little Vixen that blended traditional opera with technology and animation.
