  On March 30, CET, KET and other PBS stations will begin airing a new 6-hour Ken Burns production, Cancer: The Emperor of All Maladies. The documentary, based on the Pulitzer Prize-winning book The Emperor of All Maladies: A Biography of Cancer by Siddhartha Mukherjee, takes a detailed look at one of our most dreaded diseases. Joining us for a preview of the film and to discuss what we know, and don'’t know, about cancer, are physicians with the University of Cincinnati Cancer Institute, Dr. Rebecca Cornelius, Dr. John Morris, and Dr. Thomas Herzog.

Language Matters, the film about the importance of native languages and the rapid rate of their disappearance, airs on Cincinnati’s CET March 29. Cincinnatian Bob Holman is the host and he joins Barbara Gray to discuss the far-off locations this film took him; what viewers will see when it airs; and his upcoming appearance at Xavier University.

One-time Cincinnati journalist Larry Nager is the man behind the upcoming PBS special Rock My Soul, a salute to the people, history, and influence of gospel music, featuring archival footage, interviews and new, live performances. Lee Hay recently spoke with Larry Nager about his love of gospel music and the process of bringing this special to life. (The special airs on KET2 on March 8 at 11:30pm and March 13 at 5:30pm and on CET Arts March 6 at 8:00pm.)

Barbara Gray has an extended interview with Cincinnati native Bob Holman, a published poet, university professor and host of the new PBS special Language Matters. He talks about how some languages are disappearing, his travels seeking the reasons why and shares one of his poems.
