Broadcast Links

During every POV broadcast, we let viewers know they can find out more about certain topics on the POV website by running text alerts across the bottom of the TV screen. Some of the alerts describe features on the POV website and others are about resources we've linked to elsewhere online. In order to make it easier for you to find the features and links related to these topics, we've put together this new resource page listing all the alerts in one place.

What is it like to have power over life and death, and yet to struggle with your own humanity? The English Surgeon is the story of acclaimed British neurosurgeon Henry Marsh, who has traveled to Ukraine for 15 years to treat patients who have been left to die; of his friend and medical colleague in Kyiv who carries on the fight despite official hostility and archaic surgical conditions; and of a young patient who hopes that Henry can save his life.
