Frontline: The Old Man and the Storm
In this "Frontline" documentary -- by turns heartbreaking and inspiring -- filmmaker June Cross follows 82-year-old New Orleans resident Herbert Gettridge as he works to rebuild his Lower Ninth Ward home, alone, in the wake of Hurricane Katrina. The program also focuses on Gettridge's extended family and their efforts to remain in New Orleans, a once-vibrant city that holds their history but is now battered, bruised and largely uninhabitable.
