    THIS WEEK in Northern California [#2418H] February 22, 2013 Guest Host: Jami Floyd.
    BAY AREA GUN VIOLENCE - An epidemic of mass shootings, including the brutal killings of 20 children and six adults from Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut, has shaken the nation. But some urban communities live with the relentless reality of gun violence every day. Here in Northern California, in places like Oakland, San Jose, Richmond, Vallejo and Fresno, a recent violent crime surge has made residents anxious. We devote our full program this week to the topic of gun violence in our communities.
    Guests: Mina Kim, KQED California Report; Eva Paterson, President & Founder of Equal Justice Society; Allison Briscoe-Smith, Director, Center for the Vulnerable Child, Children's Hospital Oakland.
    SOLDIERS AGAINST VIOLENCE EVERYWHERE - In the past 5 years, there were more than 550 homicides in Oakland, most by gun fire. According to data compiled by the Urban Strategies Council, 143 Oakland residents age 17 and under were shot in 2011 - 6 of them fatally. A group residents is pleading to be heard by the police, policymakers, and their own community. They call themselves "SAVE," an acronym for "Soldiers Against Violence Everywhere."
    NEWSMAKER INTERVIEW: WILLIAM BRATTON - An interview with Oakland's controversial new police consultant as he prepares to tackle violence on the streets of one of the country's hardest hit communities.

    Washington Week [#5234H] * The latest showdown over deficit reduction has the White House and Congress trading blame for the lack of a deal rather than working together to reach a compromise. If a budget deal is not reached, 85 billion dollars in automatic spending cuts are set to kick in March 1. What are the chances for a deal before the deadline? We'll get answers and analysis on the politics of sequestration from John Harwood of CNBC and The New York Times.
    * An American cyber security company revealed this week that China has orchestrated worldwide computer hacking attacks on US businesses, news organizations and government agencies. The Chinese government denies the allegations, but there is growing concern the next phase of these high-tech attacks could involve "cyber espionage" of US power systems, air traffic, and other infrastructure. David Sanger of The New York Times reports on what the US is doing to protect the US economy and national security from these cyber intrusions.
    * "Washington Week" is part of PBS' "After Newtown" initiative, a series of documentaries, news reports and public affairs programs providing thought-provoking context to the national conversation about gun violence in America. PBS has brought together its science, documentary and public affairs programs to provide in-depth reporting on the myriad issues related to gun violence, including gun laws, mental health support and availability, and school safety. This week Molly Ball of The Atlantic and Sari Horwitz of The Washington Post will report on the renewed push for tougher gun laws at the state and federal level in the wake of the Newtown school shooting and the deepening divide over gun rights.

However, in a thousand years of the British monarchy only one has dared to resign his crown for a woman's love.

Instead, he believed he could use the power and majesty of the throne to pursue his obsession with his twice-divorced American mistress, Wallis Simpson. It recounts a familiar tale, but from a fascinating new perspective, exploring warning signs that were evident in Edward from an early age that ultimately led to years of scandal and controversy in the 20th century British monarchy. duration 52:04   STEREO TVPG
