We Shall Remain is a groundbreaking mini-series and provocative multi-media project that establishes Native history as an essential part of American history. It begins in the 1600s with the Wampanoags, who used their alliance with the English to strengthen their position in Southern New England. And it ends with the bold new leaders of the 1970s, who harnessed the momentum of the Civil Rights Movement to forge a pan-Indian identity.

In June 1934, as temperatures dropped 70 degrees below zero, Richard Byrd lay alone in a tiny hut near the South Pole, close to death. No one had ever experienced winter in the interior of Antarctica. Desperately ill, Byrd made a note in his diary: Fully expect to die. In an age of heroes, he was one of the world's greatest. An explorer, aviation pioneer and scientist, Byrd was also an egotist, risk-taker - and, his critcs claim, a self-promoter who took credit for the accomplishments of others. Byrd became an international hero after he claimed to have made the first flight over the North Pole. But some questioned whether he had really made it. Underrated, Byrd set out for Antarctica, where he would be the first to fly over the Soth Pole. Then, with no poles left to conquer, he secretly planned a dramatic feat: enduring the winter alone on the polar ice. Drawing on compelling archival footage, interviews with family members, colleagues and historians, and rich musical score, ALONE ON THE ICE tells the remarkable story of America's most famous, and controversial polar explorer.

In the 1940s Dr. Walter Freeman gained fame for perfecting the lobotomy, then hailed as a miracle cure for the severely mentally ill. It was hailed by the New York Times as "surgery of the soul," a groundbreaking medical procedure that promised hope to the most distressed mentally ill patients and their families. But what began as an operation of last resort was soon being performed at some fifty state asylums, often to devastating results. Little more than a decade after his rise to fame, Walter Freeman, the neurologist who championed the procedure, was decried as a moral monster, and lobotomy one of the most barbaric mistakes of modern medicine.
