First In, Last Out: A History of Fighting Fire in Indianapolis tells the history of Indianapolis Fire Department and gives the public a glimpse inside the life of current firefighters.
The Indianapolis Fire Department was founded from humble beginnings as a small collection of concerned citizens over 150 years ago. Since that time, the profession has evolved. In an era of rapid technological innovation and 21st century threats, the job description of these professionals demands a drastically different set of skills. Despite these changes, traditions hold strong. They continue to live, work, celebrate and mourn as a family.

China is often seen as a land in cultural conflict with itself, as millennia of ancient practices meet head-on with life in the 21st century. Nowhere is this more apparent than the multi-faceted area of medical practice.

Turkey is a country that straddles two continents. Its culture reflects that duality. Judy O'Bannon traveled with a group of Hoosiers at the invitation of the Indianapolis-based Holy Dove Foundation this summer, as a way of building bridges of understanding between our country and the Islamic world of Turkey.
Regarding the program's unusual title, Judy noted that bridges emerged as a memorable image from her journey. A bridge in Bosphorous connects the continents of Asia and Europe – and bridges connect the two sides of Istanbul. A bridge of sorts has been created between Indiana and Turkey as a result of this journey – made possible in very real terms through the Internet. "The world is really shrinking, and we are truly becoming more and more connected," said O'Bannon.
