From immigrant to Medal of Honor recipient. Retired U.S. Army Captain Florent “Flo” Groberg takes us through his journey, from his early days as an American citizen to the eight seconds of courage that changed his life and saved the lives of others. For some veterans the real battle begins when they return home. Now, there’s help for them and their families as they attempt to heal. 75 years after its release, the 1942 romance, “Casablanca” will revisit theaters. Ingrid Bergman’s daughter, Pia Lindström, shares behind-the-scenes stories of this American classic film. Rolling Stone calls her a toxic avenger! Now a new documentary follows this biologist, wife, mother and activist who has thrown herself into an environmental war that many believe is unwinnable.

Aired on November 9, 2017.
