Upcoming Episodes

  • Poisoned Water

    An investigation of what happened in Flint, Mich., when officials changed the city's water source to save money, but overlooked a critical treatment process. As the water pipes corroded, lead leached into the system, exposing the community-including thousands of children-to dangerous levels of poison. Included: the science behind the disaster, from the intricacies of water chemistry to the biology of lead poisoning to the misuse of science itself. (60 minutes)
