    Washington Week [#5639H] * President Trump and House Speaker Paul Ryan pulled the Republican health care reform bill from the House floor after it became clear it did not have the votes to pass. Moments after the decision, Trump told The Washington Post's Robert Costa that he is open to a bipartisan deal in the future. "When it explodes, [Democrats] come to us and we make one beautiful deal," Trump said. We explain the fallout of the high stakes debate with Costa, The Washington Post's Philip Rucker and The New York Times' Yamiche Alcindor.
    * While President Trump pushes for a win on health care, he continues to face ongoing questions about coordination between his top campaign officials and Russia. The FBI director told Congress there is an ongoing investigation and said there is no evidence to back up the president's claims that his predecessor wiretapped Trump Tower. Democrats are also questioning the credibility of the House Intelligence Committee investigation after Republican Chairman Devin Nunes, a close Trump ally, briefed the president about evidence of the "incidental collection" of communications by Trump associates. Michael Crowley of Politico shares the latest details of the ongoing investigations.
    * Plus, President Trump has repeatedly responded to events during his first 60 days in office with unsubstantiated tweets and questions about the reliability of U.S. intelligence. The Wall Street Journal Editorial Board harshly called into question Trump's credibility, writing that he "clings to his assertion like a drunk to an empty gin bottle." The Trump administration's reliance on alternative facts also led Time Magazine to ask, "Is truth dead?" We explore Trump's relationship with the truth and the consequences of falsehoods with Time's Michael Scherer, who interviewed the president for this week's cover story.

    Queen's Garden Hidden behind security cameras and barbed wire are 39 acres of a secret wildlife haven like no other. It's the most biodiverse place in central London and it belongs to Her Majesty The Queen. But few have explored the remarkable plants and animals found here until now. There are a quarter of Britain's insect species, 300 wild flowers and 42 bird species in The Queen's Garden. Oxford Scientific Films was granted exclusive access to film in the royal gardens over a year across all four seasons from Fall 2013. For the first time ever, we'll capture every move of Her Majesty's "royal wildlife" using the latest camera technology. Miniature "Animal Cams" follow everything from pipistrelle bats to fledgling birds and bats. And we'll discover the intriguing, personal stories of the Royal Family's love of nature: the Queen's morning walks with her corgis. The film also includes bits of history, telling the stories of how the garden has changed over the centuries under the rule of different Kings and Queens. During Henry VIII's reign it was a deer park, it then became a menagerie -- and finally an "eco-garden" and family space equipped with tennis court and helipad! duration 56:46   STEREO TVPG

    Manchurian Candidate [#1053H] (1962) In 1952 during the Korean War, a group of American soldiers are captured. A year later they escape and return home, where Staff Sergeant Raymond Shaw (Laurence Harvey) is scheduled to receive the Medal of Honor for saving the lives of the squad. His ambitious mother Eleanor (Angela Landsbury in a stellar performance which earned her a Best Supporting Actress nod) is now married to US Senator John Iselin (James Gregory), and she turns her son's return into a political event that brings out their building hostility. Also, two members of the squad start having recurring nightmares, and realize they can't seem to remember what Shaw really did to earn his medal. Eventually one of them, Captain/Major Bennett Marco (Frank Sinatra), is allowed to investigate Shaw's current activities, unlocking a political secret which threatens to sweep everyone in its wake. Directed by John Frankenheimer, this film ended up on the shelf for over 25 years after its debut due to a dispute between United Artists and Sinatra, who held controlling interest in the film. duration 2:06:34   TVPG
