Alaska Gold (Episode #2804H)

KQED 9: Tue, Jul 24, 2012 -- 10:00 PM

The Bristol Bay region of southwest Alaska is home to the last great wild Sockeye salmon fishery in the world. It's also home to enormous mineral deposits - copper, gold, molybdenum - estimated to be worth some $300 billion. Now, two foreign mining companies are proposing to extract this mineral wealth by digging one of North America's largest open-pit mines, the "Pebble Mine," at the headwaters of Bristol Bay. Frontline travels to Alaska to probe the fault lines of a growing battle between those who depend on this extraordinary fishery for a living, the mining companies who are pushing for Pebble, and the political framework that will ultimately decide the outcome.

Endgame: AIDS In Black America (Episode #3017)

KQED 9: Tue, Jul 10, 2012 -- 10:00 PM

Every 10 minutes, someone in the U.S. contracts HIV. Half are black. Thirty years after the discovery of the AIDS virus among gay white men, nearly half of the one million people in the United States infected with HIV are black men, women and children. "If Black America was a country unto itself, it would have the 16th worst epidemic in the world," says Phill Wilson, head of the Black AIDS Institute. "Endgame: AIDS in Black America" is an exploration of one of the country's most urgent, preventable health crises. The film traces the history of the epidemic through the experiences of extraordinary individuals who tell their stories. People like Nel, a 63-year-old grandmother, who married a deacon in her church and later found an HIV diagnosis tucked into his Bible; Tom and Keith, who call themselves "Bornies," survivors who were children born with the virus in the early 1990s; and Jovante, a high school football player who didn't realize what HIV meant until it was too late. From Magic Johnson to civil rights pioneer Julian Bond, from pastors to health workers, people on the front lines tell moving stories of the battle to contain the spread of the virus, and the opportunity to finally turn the tide of the epidemic. Written, produced an directed by Renata Simone, the producer of the 2006 Frontline series, "The Age of AIDS."

Money, Power and Wall Street: The Crisis Spreads (Episode #3014H)

KQED 9: Tue, Jul 3, 2012 -- 10:00 PM

In an encore presentation from the acclaimed series "Money, Power and Wall Street," FRONTLINE explores how an "epidemic of greed" spread from financial institutions in the United States to Europe and back. Correspondent Martin Smith (College, Inc., The Madoff Affair) reveals a trail of complex deals that contributed to a European crisis that today threatens to sink the global economy into another slump. Almost four years after the meltdown, FRONTLINE examines how regulators have tried to fix an industry steeped in conflicts of interest, excessive risk taking and incentives to cheat. New rules and regulations are being written, but can they prevent the next crisis?
