Although storm clouds darkened the sky over Loyola University's campus in Columbia last April, they were no match for the bright lights and broad grins shining on a makeshift stage inside the graduate center. There, before a standing room only crowd, 14 kids sang and danced their way to a better life. The show had nothing to do with fame or talent. All the glory came because one child stepped up to the microphone and another one could sing a song without prompting. One actually looked at his fellow actors as he spoke, and another smiled on cue. This was the sixth performance of Expanding Horizons: Broadway Kids, a program for special needs kids, mostly with Down syndrome and autism disorders, designed to combine speech therapy with theater skills to improve communication and social interaction.

Teaching as a rite of passage. That's the narrative that drives The First Year, a brilliant and moving little documentary that follows five new teachers through their first year in the Los Angeles public school system. It will leave you in awe at the dedication of some teachers and howling in anger at the insensitivity of some of the folks with whom they work. I say "little" because in the sea of huge, multi-part documentaries of which PBS seems so enamored, The First Year stands out like a small, perfectly sculpted and polished stone.

Doctor-patient communications have been the subject of jokes for years. But if a physician's accent is so strong that patients or colleagues can't understand his instructions, it's hardly a laughing matter. Lynda Katz Wilner, an Owings Mills speech pathologist, first observed this 25 years ago, when a foreign-born neurologist in a Philadelphia hospital was delivering a grand rounds lecture, ostensibly to demonstrate a patient's inability to comprehend directions after a stroke. There was only one problem: the audience couldn't understand the doctor's instructions either.
