Moment of IMPACT: Stories of the Pulitzer Prize Photographs, hosted by Sam Waterson, tell the compelling stories behind some of the world's most memorable photographs. Returning to the scene of action, each photographer describes, in a gripping first-hand account, how they took their prize-winning photographs. The moments they captured are recreated. Their images forged history and changed lives - including the photographers' own. The stories of these unforgettable photographs - many of them here for the first time - are as compelling and long lasting as the images themselves. 

Moment of IMPACT won an Emmy Award and Telly Award for Best Documentary. Directed and Produced by Cyma Rubin for Turner Network Television.

Depth of Field, Focus on the American Soldier, hosted by Patrick Center of WGVU-TV Michigan is a 30 minute documentary filmed at the Gerald R.
