Summary Public television documentary that began in 2001 with the work of Dr. Elizabeth Goodenough. Examines the disappearance of play and nature from the daily lives of children. Many children today do not know about free play in the natural world. Sprawl, congestion, and suburban development across America have moved children further and further into isolation. Explores this new environmental impact on children's mental and physical health and their development. Combines research of urban planners, health experts, educators and environmentalists to explain the realities of childhood in urban areas, suburbs, and rural areas. Includes commentary from children about their perception of play
