    Nazi Hunt: Elusive Justice An unprecedented investigation of the global search for the 20th Century's greatest criminals. Following the atrocities of World War II, the international community declared the Nazi party a criminal organization, and pledged to prosecute and punish those individuals responsible for the genocide of innocent individuals. During the Nuremberg Trials, approximately 1000 Nazi officials were convicted of crimes against humanity, but tens of thousands evaded prosecution - by concealing their war records, assuming false identities, fleeing Europe, or serving various Allied countries as spies or scientists. < br />Thousands of Nazi criminals are presumed to be alive. This feature length film explores how governments and institutions failed to uphold their own laws, and forced individuals to act independently - and provoke them into belated and anemic action. Featuring portraits of the men and women who conducted investigations and led manhunts over six decades, this film provides a definitive account of efforts - official and unofficial - to locate, prosecute, and punish fugitive Nazis around the world. Narrated by Candice Bergen. duration 1:56:46   STEREO TV14-V (Secondary audio: DVI)

    Washington Week [#5206H] New polls show the presidential race remains in a dead heat with fewer than 90 days until Election Day. A new set of New York Times/CBS News polls in 3 key swing states shows President Obama leading in Virginia and Wisconsin, but trailing in Colorado where Mitt Romney leads Obama 50%-45%. But when it comes to favorability, Mr. Obama holds a 13-point edge over Mr. Romney (53% to 40%) in the latest Washington Post/ABC News national survey.
    There are some mixed results among the polls, but most experts agree the election boils down to a handful of battleground states. That's why both campaigns are targeting key states and select groups of voters. Both candidates are out campaigning in crucial swing states like Iowa and Colorado hoping to convert undecided voters into full-fledged supporters. And Obama and Romney are both aiming their messages at the same group of voters: women and the working class.
    While the candidates continue their grassroots outreach with voters, outside political groups that support each candidate are raising eyebrows with their controversial ads about welfare and healthcare that have the Obama and Romney campaigns crying foul.
    Plus time is ticking down for Mitt Romney to announce his choice of a vice presidential running mate. We will examine the state of the 2012 presidential race with:
    Jeff Zeleny of The New York Times;
    Beth Reinhard of National Journal;

In 1938, a fan-shaped shed was constructed with 5,100 seats, providing the BSO with a permanent open-air structure in which to perform. Two years later, BSO conductor Serge Koussevitzky initiated a summer school for young musicians, now known as the Tanglewood Music Center. Now, on the occasion of Tanglewood's 75th anniversary, GREAT PERFORMANCES presents this concert, featuring the Boston Symphony Orchestra, the Boston Pops, the Tanglewood Music Center Orchestra, and the Tanglewood Festival Chorus under the batons of conductors John Williams, Keith Lockhart and Andris Nelsons; soloists include James Taylor, cellist Yo-Yo Ma, pianists Emanuel Ax and Peter Serkin, and violinist Anne-Sophie Mutter.
