"Reagan" is a documentary that started airing this week on HBO. The film is directed by the Mad River Valley's Eugene Jarecki. We speak with Jarecki about the film and documentary filmmaking. Middlebury College professor Leger Grindon provides insight into why filmmakers choose the genre, how documentaries get funded and who are some of the most important documentarians. And Richmond filmmaker John Billingsley discusses "Liemba," a documentary he just completed after eight years of work.

Plus, with the release of "The King's Speech," stuttering has come into public view. There is a controversy within the speech therapy field over the best approach to treating stuttering. We talk with Barry Guitar, a professor at the University of Vermont who does research and clinical work on stuttering in pre-school aged children. He is one of the leading advocates of "direct therapy" for stuttering.
