Then, at 12:46pm, watch What is Money?, in which people around Cambridge discuss what money means to them. And, at 1pm, Money Matters, a theatrical production about financial crisis, produced by youth in the 2011 Mayor's Summer Youth Employment Program.

On Sunday June 21st, celebrate the father figure in your life with a Fathers' Day Dad-athon of dad-themed shows. On Channel 8 from 8-9am and on Channel 96 from 1-2pm, watch pieces like Road to Memory by CCTV intern Chau Le, a short road trip film about a young woman who loses her memory, then meets a man on the road who helps her find her father.
