Episode Summary

Episode 1
Free Speech: Unexpected pauses, frequent repetitions and stretched sounds make saying 'hello' seem to take an eternity. These people are stutterers. Scientists aren't sure what causes the condition, but a new device called the SpeechEasy is helping more stutterers speak clearly. Without a Trace: Imagine touching glass and not leaving a mark virtually no trace of the complex lines and ridges that make up each individual fingerprint. The Smallest Children in the World: Although Kenadie Jourdin-Bromley is 3½ years old, she is only 27 inches tall and weighs about 10 pounds, the same as a 1-month-old infant. Kenadie is a primordial dwarf. 'They are the smallest children in the world, and it is a big mystery as to why they are so small. We just don't know,' said Dr. Charles Scott, one of the world's experts on the condition. You Be The Doctor: The hour will also feature a medical mystery designed for viewer participation.moreless
