    Washington Week with Gwen Ifill [#5505] *Who could have predicted that billionaire real estate magnate and TV celebrity Donald Trump would be surging in the polls just two months after jumping into the 2016 presidential race? Trump's brash style and penchant for controversy have made him the Republican frontrunner. It's also helped him overshadow other would-be GOP stars like Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker, Kentucky Senator Rand Paul, New Jersey Governor Chris Christie and even one-time presumed frontrunner former Florida Governor Jeb Bush.
    *Jeb Bush may not have frontrunner status, but he does have a bounty of deep-pocketed supporters. In fact a dozen million-dollar contributors account for at least 10 percent of Bush's record-setting presidential fundraising haul.
    *Gwen Ifill examines the meteoric rise of Trump's popularity and whether next week's first of the season GOP presidential debate could shift the standings among the now 17 Republicans vying to be president with John Harwood of CNBC and the New York Times and Robert Costa of The Washington Post.
    *Congress passed a short term extension of the federal highway bill and aid for veterans' health care on Wednesday ahead of its planned August recess. When lawmakers return in September, they'll be faced with a number of time-sensitive deadlines tied to President Obama's Iran nuclear deal, a fight over raising the federal government's borrowing limits, and the looming possibility of another government shutdown. Susan Davis of USA Today will take a closer look at the priority issues that will be on Congress' fall agenda.

    Nova [#4112H] Escape from Nazi Alcatraz Colditz Castle, a notorious prisoner of war camp in Nazi Germany, was supposed to be escape-proof. But in the dark days at the end of World War II, a group of British officers dreamt up the ultimate escape plan: in a secret attic workshop, they constructed a two-man glider out of bed sheets and floorboards. Their plan was to fly to freedom from the roof of the castle, but the war ended before they could put it to the test. Now a crack team of aerospace engineers and carpenters rebuild the glider in the same attic using the same materials, and they'll do something the prisoners never got a chance to try: use a bathtub full of concrete to catapult the glider off the roof of the castle. As the hair-raising launch 90 feet up draws near, the program explores the Colditz legend and exposes the secrets of other ingenious and audacious escapes. Then, after a 70-year wait, the team finally finds out if the legendary glider plan would have succeeded. duration 55:21   STEREO TVPG

    Extraordinary Women [#108H] Hedy Lamarr With her smoldering femme fatale looks, Austrian Hedy Lamarr was known as the most beautiful woman in film. She was also one of the most controversial. Hedvig Kiesler, as she was born, launched her film career by performing cinema's very first nude scenes. Released in 1932, 'Ecstasy', in which she played the central role, 'Eva', shocked audiences and brought condemnation from critics across the world - it was banned in Germany, in America and by even the Pope. Her notoriety continued as she travelled from Europe to Hollywood. Although she would star in a string of box office hits, such as Cecil B Demille's sumptuous Technicolor extravaganza 'Samson and Delilah', her endless pursuit of love and stability led to 6 disastrous, high-profile marriages. And her desperate struggle to combine career and motherhood led to her rejecting her children. Then, as her looks faded so did her career. She resorted to drastic plastic surgery and found a new way to make headlines - shoplifting. duration 49:56   STEREO TVPG

    Bing Crosby Rediscovered: American Masters Bing Crosby (May 3, 1903-October 14, 1977) was, without doubt, the most popular and influential multi-media star of the first half of the 20th century. For more than 3 decades, through radio, film, television and records, he reigned supreme. 37 years after his death, he remains the most recorded performer in history with nearly 400 hit singles, an achievement no one - not Sinatra, Elvis or the Beatles - has come close to matching.
    A brilliant entrepreneur, Crosby played an important role in the development of the postwar recording industry. As one of Hollywood's most popular actors, he won the Oscar for 1944's Going My Way and starred in the iconic "Road" films with Bob Hope. This program explores the legend of an iconic performer, revealing a personality far more complex than the public persona he so carefully cultivated. Crosby's estate granted American Masters unprecedented access to the entertainer's personal and professional archives, including never-before-seen home movies, Dictabelt recordings, photos and more.
    The film features new interviews with all surviving members of Bing Crosby's immediate family - wife Kathryn, daughter Mary and sons Harry and Nathaniel - as well as singers Tony Bennett and Michael Feinstein, record producer Ken Barnes, biographer Gary Giddins and writers Buz Kohan and Larry Grossman. "Bing's remarkable appeal, which continues to this day, was in his seemingly effortless ability to pull an audience in to his intimate, laid-back voice," says Emmy-winning director Robert Trachtenberg. "With the new material I've found, I think the breadth, depth and candor of his story will hopefully allow people to see him in a new light." "Much like his talent, Bing Crosby is a natural for the series. With more No. 1 recordings than anyone, it is easy to overlook all of his other achievements. Thankfully, this film delves deeply into all of his remarkable work, and will surprise many viewers with a unique perspective on his private life," says Michael Kantor, executive producer.
