Silver Spring, MD -- An emotional and pragmatic look at the way Americans face death, the PBS-broadcast documentary series, Bill Moyers: On Our Own Terms arrives to DVD from Athena on October 25, 2011. Legendary Emmy(R) and Peabody Award-winning journalist Bill Moyers (PBS, NBC, CBS) interviews dozens of terminally ill patients in this four-part exploration of end-of-life issues - from health care to cultural attitudes. The series offers illuminating perspectives on the sometimes controversial ethical, medical and economic forces that can drive a person's decisions surrounding death. The 2-Vol. DVD set also includes a 16-page viewer's guide, biographies, and more ($49.99, www.AcornOnline.com). On Our Own Terms is Athena's ninth release from Moyers' acclaimed library of programs.

While research shows that the majority of the people wish to die at home, most Americans will die in hospitals. In this emotional, powerful, and constructive exploration on death, renowned journalist Bill Moyers interviews dozens of terminally ill patients. From a gentle pediatrician who chooses not to combat his cancer with chemotherapy to palliative-care doctors and hospice workers who focus on comfort rather than cure, this four-part program uses individual portraits to explain the complex concepts and choices that surround a good death. Allowing patients from many cultures and backgrounds to speak about their wishes and beliefs, each a poignant story of living with--and redefining--death.
