FILM ON OBESITY IN KIDS ... A documentary produced by Louise Pencavel at the Midpeninsula Community Media Center in Palo Alto is soon to be shown on national television. "The Parents' Survival Guide: Childhood Obesity" is a one-hour program looking at the reasons for obesity in kids and proposing solutions for addressing the problem. "Childhood obesity is an incredibly multi-layered and complex problem with biological, psychological, social, cultural and political facets and I have found it an infinitely fascinating subject to explore," Pencavel said in a press release. Locally, the program is currently set to be shown on June 13 at 7 and 10 a.m. on KQED World, but Pencavel encourages viewers to check their local listings as times can change.
