Secretariat's Jockey, Ron Turcotte

Ron Turcotte is deemed one of the best jockeys of all time. From 1961 to 1978, he won 3,033 horse races. But he’s better known for taking the U.S. Triple Crown astride Secretariat, the fastest thoroughbred the racing world has ever known. At the time, the prestigious trophy hadn’t been won in 25 years. Turcotte is also the only jockey in history to have won five of the six consecutive Triple Crown races. His brilliant career came to an abrupt halt during a race that left him a paraplegic.

NCR: Not Criminally Responsible

From John Kastner, four-time Emmy winner and director of Life with Murder, comes Not Criminally Responsible, a new documentary about the revolution in the treatment of the “criminally insane.” Kastner and his crew are given remarkable access to a forensic psychiatric institution, filming inside its walls for over a year. The film shows how psychiatrists treat mental patients who have committed violent crimes—patients who not long ago would have been considered so hopelessly dangerous they must be confined for life, but today are being released back into the community.
