is going to be coming on PBS at 9pm on September 10th.

A new 3 and a half minute preview is up on youtube, and thought I would share!

What do you guys think? Do you want to watch it?

You can watch it in its entirety here: http://video.pbs.org/video/2365322027/ I just watched it, and it's pretty good. I think that it handles the concerns about immunizations very well, and with great sensitivity, and clear science. There was a lot about the history of vaccines that I didn't know, and it put the Ben Franklin quote ("In 1736 I lost one of my sons, a fine boy of four years old, by the small-pox, taken in the common way. I long regretted bitterly, and still regret that I had not given it to him by inoculation. This I mention for the sake of parents who omit that operation, on the supposition that they should never forgive themselves if a child died under it, my example showing that the regret may be the same either way and that, therefore, the safer should be chosen.") that I had read before in better context for me, since I was not aware of the history of the smallpox vaccine before.

Did you watch it?

Watched it and DH & I thought it was great. I appreciated the care they took to present all sides.
