    Washington Week with Gwen Ifill [#5532] * Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders clashed over Wall Street, foreign policy and what it means to be a progressive during the last Democratic presidential candidates' debate before the New Hampshire primary next week. The former secretary of state, who won the Iowa caucuses by a slim margin, accused the Vermont senator of smearing her record by suggesting she was in the pocket of Wall Street because she accepted campaign donations and speaking fees from the financial industry.
    * Sanders, who holds a double-digit lead in New Hampshire, pushed back taking aim at Clinton's progressive record on a number of issues, including her vote as a senator to authorize the war in Iraq.
    * On the Republican side, Donald Trump's second-place finish in Iowa has shaken up the race for the GOP nomination. Trump graciously conceded the win to Sen. Ted Cruz on Monday, then reversed himself and went on the attack claiming the Texas senator "stole" Iowa by committing voter fraud.
    * Sen. Marco Rubio is using the momentum from his strong third-place finish in Iowa to distinguish himself as the Republican candidate who can bring Americans together. But his strong showing has made him the target of two rivals also fighting for Republican establishment support - Jeb Bush and Chris Christie.
    * With all eyes on New Hampshire, can Sanders maintain his significant lead to score a victory or will Clinton's deep ties with the party's establishment help her pull off an upset? And can Trump recover from a second-place finish in Iowa to make a comeback in the Granite State?
    * Gwen Ifill will get answers and analysis from the political reporters covering the 2016 Race for the White House with Robert Costa of The Washington Post, Lisa Lerer of the Associated Press, Doyle McManus of the Los Angeles Times and Reid Wilson of Morning Consult.

    KQED NEWSROOM [#316H] Super Bowl 50, NFL Players Choir, Drones, Zika Virus
    Super Bowl Fever
    The kick-off for Super Bowl 50 is this Sunday afternoon at 3:30 p.m. at Levi's Stadium, and the region has been gearing up for the big game. And then we have the red-hot Golden State Warriors: the team earned a trip to the White House this week, where President Obama honored last year's N-B-A champs. Scott Shafer talks sports with long-time Bay Area radio sports host Rick Tittle.

    NFL Players Choir
    God is never too far from the Gridiron -- it’s not unusual to hear prayers in the locker room or professional athletes thanking God when they win. Ahead of the big game, some current and former NFL players are in the Bay Area to raise their voices in praise in a Super Bowl Gospel celebration. A few members of the NFL Players Choir stopped by our studios and gave us a sneak peak of their Bay Area performance.

    & bull; Myron Butler, choir director and Grammy award winner
    & bull; Bryan Scott, former linebacker, who played with teams including the Atlanta Falcons and the Buffalo Bills
    & bull; Olrick Johnson, former linebacker with the Patriots, Vikings and New York Jets

    Drones at Work
    In the near future, drones will be delivering our pizzas, inspecting power lines, and tackling dangerous jobs – or so say Silicon Valley entrepreneurs who are developing new uses for these flying robots. Producer Sheraz Sadiq and reporter Monica Lam visit several start-ups to see what they're developing.

    Zika Virus Detection
    This week the World Health Organization declared the Zika virus an international public health emergency. The virus is carried by mosquitos and has been linked to birth defects. Here in the Bay Area, scientists are working on new technology that may help to quickly detect infections from the Zika virus. Scott Shafer talks with Dr. Charles Chiu, a specialist in infectious diseases at UC San Francisco.

    Edward VIII - The Nazi King When the Duke and Duchess of Windsor sailed into Palm Beach, Florida on the SS Berkshire from Nassau on 18th April, 1941, they were looking forward to enjoying 3 days of relaxation, playing golf, drinking and gossiping with American high society. But unbeknown to this infamous couple, the night before the ship docked, President Roosevelt had instructed FBI chief J Edgar Hoover to launch what was to be an extraordinary covert intelligence exercise that had to fool both the exiled royals and the US secret service agents guarding them. The final FBI report, recently released under the US Freedom of Information Act, running to 227 pags, reveals that the Duke and Duchess of Windsor harbored pro-Nazi sympathies and that Edward was lined up to go back to the throne as a Nazi puppet if Hitler defeated Britain.
    Now, for the first time, the full, inside story is told, in which Edward and his wife were warmly welcomed by Hitler in Germany and thereafter Edward passed on top secret Allied information to the enemy. It's a tale of treachery, corruption and depravity at the heart of the British monarchy - and one which could have changed the course of history.

    ImageMakers [#1303H] The Animation of Imagination THE LOST THING (Australia) - A boy discovers a bizarre looking creature while out collecting bottle caps one day at the beach. Realizing it is lost, he tries to find out where it belongs, but everyone else is too busy or wrapped up in their own lives to care. The boy decides it is up to him to find its home. The surreal animation comes from the mind of children's book writer Shaun Tan. A beautiful allegory exploring how we take for granted the world around us and how we ourselves at times feel like we don't belong.
    FANTASTIC FLYING BOOKS OF MORRIS LESSMORE (US) - Inspired in equal measures by Hurricane Katrina (the filmmakers are based in Louisiana), Buster Keaton, The Wizard of Oz, and a love for books, "Morris Lessmore" is a story of people who devote their lives to books. The film is a poignant, humorous allegory about the curative powers of reading. The film uses a hybrid style of animation that harkens back to silent films and M-G-M Technicolor musicals.

    Hollywood Idols [#114H] Gary Cooper: The Face of a Hero Known for his personification of the Western Hero, it was Montana-born Gary Cooper's horse-riding skills that first brought him bit parts in movies - and he never lost his love of the great American outdoors. Though he rarely played a villain and was an adept comedian, Cooper is best remembered for the strong, silent heroes he portrayed. With his lanky, country-boy looks and shy manner, he created a unique screen presence, though his real life was one of sophisticated elegance. He received three Academy Award nominations and two Academy Awards for his resume of more than 100 films. Cooper's most memorable films include A Farewell to Arms, Mr. Deeds Goes to Town, Meet John Doe, The Pride of the Yankees and High Noon. Daughter Maria Cooper Janis and actors George C.
