Living Your Dying

PBS HAWAII PRESENTS: Living Your Dying - Rev. Mitsuo “Mits” Aoki, a pioneer of Hawaii’s hospice movement.


Rev. Mitsuo “Mits” Aoki, a pioneer of Hawai‘i’s hospice movement and founder of the University of Hawaii School of Religion, passed away in August 2010. This film from 2003 highlights his own transformative near-death experience; his therapeutic work with terminally-ill cancer patients; the death of his wife Evelyn; and thoughts about his own mortality. For over 40 years, Rev. Aoki attempted to take the terror out of dying, and showed others how to experience death as not just the end of life, but as a vital part of life, as well.

The Man Who Knew


On the 16th anniversary of the tragic events of September 11, 2001, FRONTLINE rebroadcasts the extraordinary saga of FBI special agent John O’Neill. As the bureau’s top counterterrorism agent, O’Neill – who investigated the bombings of the U.S. embassies in Africa and the attack on the USS Cole – joined then-national security counterterrorism co-coordinator Richard Clarke in believing that the United States should kill Osama bin Laden before Al Qaeda launched a devastating attack on America.


Zeppelin Terror Attack


NOVA reveals the untold story of the biggest flying machines ever made: Germany’s war zeppelins, which rained death down on British towns for two and a half terrifying years during World War I. In hands-on experiments, the program uncovers how the zeppelins were built and flown, and goes inside the desperate scramble to take down the zeppelins and make the streets of Britain safe again.


The Secret History of ISIS


FRONTLINE digs deep to tell the inside story of the creation of ISIS and learn how the U.S. missed the many warning signs. The film uncovers the terror group’s earliest plans, the Islamic radicals who became its leaders and the American failures to stop the group’s brutal rise.


National Bird


In this excerpt from the Independent Lens film National Bird, Heather, a former U.S. military drone pilot who is now a masseuse, talks about the emotional distress caused by knowing she was responsible for the deaths of people, something she tried to push out of her mind but found impossible to shake. “You see someone die, because you said it was okay to kill them,” she says.


Out of Gitmo


Produced in collaboration with NPR, FRONTLINE presents the dramatic story of a Gitmo detainee released from the controversial U.S. prison after 14 years, and the struggle over freeing prisoners once deemed international terrorists. Also in this hour, FRONTLINE works with Retro Report to explore the untold history of the Guantanamo Bay prison.
