Live to Tell is a television series that involves survivors of deadly incidents appearing on the show and recounting their stories. The series consisted of three episodes that appeared on CBS's 48 Hours Mystery program. Guests on the show have endured traumatic events that they survived through a combination of resourcefulness, determination, and in some cases, blind luck. Live to Tell is considered as one of the more graphic television shows broadcasted by CBS. The first episode was titled Black Wave and detailed the story of a family who ran aground on a reef while on a family sailing trip. The second episode, River's Edge, told the story of two college students who were left in the woods to die of gunshot wounds. The last episode was titled The Year We Disappeared and follows the story of a family that is forced to move frequently and alter their appearances to avoid being discovered by a murderer.
