Two good documentaries

Recently watched two worthwhile Frontline programs:

Facing Death portrays several people facing death, and how their families and physicians deal with the technological and ethical decisions. Chilling in its exploration if the fact that medical technology can now keep organ systems "alive" beyond any meaningful quality of life.

Living Old describes how most of us will face serious physical or mental debilitation in our last years, and follows several people and their families who are dealing with nursing homes and other difficult situations.

Both of these programs can be watch online at the Frontline website, linked above.
