"A Wider World" (formerly known as "Disabilities Today") is a PBS television
show on abilities that focuses on inspirational tales, stigma busting,
cutting edge treatment options and assisting technology, veterans issues,
sports, and other stories that celebrate the resilience of the human spirit
and the abilities of all.  

If you are not able to catch the show, it will eventually be posted to their
YouTube channel. You can subscribe to their channel by going to their site
