Body of War

donahue.JPGToday's television talk shows owe a lot to Phil Donahue. He pioneered the form with his eponymous show which aired for 29 years. Now, Donahue can add documentary filmmaker to his resume. Three years ago, at Walter Reed Army Hospital, Donahue met a young man who had been shot in the spine after being in Iraq for just one week. Donahue was so moved by Tomas Young's story, he decided to film Young's physical and mental recovery. Three years later, the result is "Body of War." The film was co-directed by Ellen Spiro (who was also the cinematographer) and features original music by Eddie Vedder. You can hear Bob's conversation with Spiro and Donahue on Thursday's show.
