KQED 9: Sun, Apr 27, 2014 -- 10:00 PM

Millie's import/export sideline leads to her abduction by a crime ring involved in trading perfume, cigarettes and stockings - and in human trafficking. After her release, Millie is determined to help those sold into prostitution. Millie, Jean, Lucy and Alice decide to tip off Customs and Excise to intercept a contraband shipment and catch the traffickers. Millie is abducted and taken to a seedy hotel, where she meets a young Eastern European girl who indicates that the crime ring is involved in sex trafficking. Jasper, Millie's black market partner who was caught skimming money, has also been kidnapped and badly beaten. Millie persuades Marta, the crime family matriarch, to let her take over Jasper's operation. After her release, Millie convinces Alice, Jean and Lucy that they should help the trafficked girls. The four women make a horrifying discovery.

Blood On Their Hands, Part 2 (Episode #202#)

KQED 9: Sun, Apr 20, 2014 -- 10:00 PM

Alice Merren is in prison awaiting trial for the murder of her former Bletchley Park colleague. Jean, believing Alice is covering for someone, begins to reunite the circle to help establish the innocence of one of their own. The investigation leads to a young woman who seems to have had a relationship with the deceased and in whose home they find documents suggesting a military cover-up of a chemical spill. The women use the skills honed at Bletchley Park - and take dangerous chances - to try to exonerate Alice. Alice is facing the gallows - it's a race against time to prove her innocence and save her life. Through a search of documents and confidential police information, the women believe the murder was part of a wider military cover-up. When Susan gains entry to a military hospital, she learns the truth. Meanwhile, the other women's lives are in danger.

Jean, believing Alice is covering for someone, begins to reunite the circle to help establish the innocence of one of their own. The investigation leads to a young woman who seems to have had a relationship with the deceased and in whose home they find documents suggesting a military cover-up of a chemical spill. The women use the skills honed at Bletchley Park - and take dangerous chances - to try to exonerate Alice. Since Alice refuses to participate in her own defense, the women begin to investigate the murder. Clues found in the murdered man's house lead to Lizzie, a woman with whom he had a relationship. In Lizzie's apartment, the women find a classified military file and press clippings relating to a chemical spill. Eventually they track down Lizzie, who fears her life is in danger. Susan deduces why Alice is willing to face the death penalty.

These switches should cause momentary outages only, and most receivers […]
