A Thai TV show called Perspective (actually a pretty good show) has had a recent episode on a Bhikkhunī, Ajahn Dhammadīpa, as part of their Wonder Women series. The episode covers her life story, the reaction of local Thais and Thai society at large, and how her monastery cares for dying cancer patients.

Wonderful wonderful video, life story & wisdom.
