Episode Summary

Shelf Life
Shelf Life is a short documentary exploring one man's passion for collecting. Since his youth, Raymond Bandar, a retired high school science teacher and long-time volunteer field associate for the California Academy of Sciences, has been collecting bones of all kinds. Today, "Bones" Bandar has more than 7,000 cataloged specimens tightly stored in his home -- mostly skulls of marine mammals that he's personally salvaged for both scientific data and personal pleasure. His wife of 50 years, artist Alkmene Bandar, has only one rule: no skulls in the bedroom.moreless
