This hour: A dark secret that threatens to tear apart a family.

A Sense of Duty
by Heather Stewart (360 Documentaries, ABC, 2011)
A man with four children, married over twenty years, hides a dark secret. It is so well buried that it takes a confluence of many seemingly unrelated events over many years for this secret to come to light. When it does, it tears apart his marriage, his work, and his sense of himself. But in the end, the excavation and exposure of his past saves his life.

by Judith Sloan with help from Sheldon Steiger (Re:sound premiere, 2011)
Queens is home to the largest mix of immigrants and refugees in the country. There, producer Judith Sloan gathered the sounds of people praying in different neighborhoods, churches, mosques, synagogues, apartments and public gatherings.

This episode of Re:sound was produced by Katie Mingle.
