Two Shows to Watch

American Experience. One of my favorite Tulane professors, Larry Powell, helped put this documentary together. On PBS

Code Blue: Sweet Charity. Documentary about Charity Hospital. WARNING- NOT FOR THE SQUEMISH! I've had several friends go through residency at Charity. It was a trial by fire for them, but it was the greatest learning experience any doctor could ever have. If you were an anesthesiologist, you learned how to deliver babies. If you were a pediatrician, you learned to patch up gunshot wounds. You got challenged there like no other place on earth.

I took Powell's LA history class back in the day. He may be why the whole show was mostly on target.
