A Final Word From Lance Loud

Before Survivor and The Real World, reality television began on public TV back in 1973 with the Loud family. The star of the series, An American Family, was 19-year-old Lance, the first openly gay person on TV. Before he died last year, Lance Loud helped the documentary producers create a final chapter for the series. NPR's Susan Stone reports.
