This hour: climbing, flying and facing your fears.

Possessed in Spite of Fear
by Roz Bluett ( Radio Eye , 2008)
Sue Fear was one of the most accomplished Australian women climbers. She died on a mountain descent in 2006, but that's just the beginning of Roz Bluett's portrait of a woman who refused to stay on even ground.

by Arielle Lasky ( Re:sound premiere, 2008)
We've all had dreams about flying. Most of us have actually a plane, surrounded by thousands of tons of riveted metal, hundreds of gallons of fuel, engines the size of cars. But sitting at the controls, guiding the plane, deciding when to turn the nose of the aircraft toward the cloudless sky? Not something most of us have, or will, experience. But after a life long dream of flying, 80-year-old Myonne Lee decided she had waited long enough.

Do What You Fear and Fear Disappears
by Sarah Boothroyd ( Re:sound premiere, 2008)
Whether you're climbing a mountain, learning to fly or just trying to leave the house in the morning, fear may be keeping you from success. Our next story by Sarah Boothroyd, from Third Coast's 99 Ways to Tell a Radio Story ShortDocs Challenge, offers this simple antidote: do what you fear and fear disappears.
