1:30 amTHIS WEEK in Northern California [#2425H] April 12, 2013 Guest Host: Joshua Johnson.
News Panel topics:
GOV. BROWN IN CHINA - Gov. Brown, along with nearly 100 business people from California, is on an historic trade mission in China this week. While there, he announced a deal with Chinese investors for a $1.5 billion waterfront development in Oakland, urged Chinese officials to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and touted the virtues of high speed rail while riding a bullet train from Beijing to Shanghai. News10's John Myers is traveling with the governor and reports from Shanghai in the first of a two-part series.
GUN LEGISLATION - Federal gun control legislation cleared the first hurdle with a 68-31 vote in the Senate. It includes federal background checks and stricter laws on illicit gun trafficking. President Obama and Democrats are pushing for stronger gun curbs in the wake of last year's shootings at Sandy Hook Elementary in Newtown, CT. Legislation is also underway here in California, which already has some of the toughest gun control laws in the country, to ban semi-automatic rifles with detachable magazines and to mandate background checks for ammunition purchases.
SACRAMENTO KINGS - The potential move of the Sacramento Kings to Seattle has fans and public figures fighting to keep the beloved team in California's capital. Mayor Kevin Johnson, a former NBA All Star, has developed a plan to move the Kings into an updated arena and revitalize the city's downtown area in an attempt to match Seattle's $341 million offer. The NBA's board of governors has the ultimate say in whether the move will take place and is expected to make a decision at its next meeting on April 18th and 19th. Meanwhile, the Maloof family, which owns the Kings, has given Sacramento until 5pm Friday to prove their deal can match Seattle's offer.
Guests: John Myers, News10; Josh Richman, Bay Area News Group; and Chuck Nevius, San Francisco Chronicle.
EXPLORATORIUM OPENS NEW HOME - For over 43 years, San Francisco's Exploratorium has tested the theory that hands-on learning is the best way to teach science. And by all accounts, its model is successful. On April 17, the museum-slash-playground inaugurates a new $300 million, solar-powered building with gorgeous views of the bay and updated exhibits to further entice kids and parents into a love of science.
While the Exploratorium readies itself for an anticipated 1 million visitors this year, some educators say that big isn't always better. Dan Sudran runs the Mission Science Workshop in San Francisco on a shoestring budget, using mostly materials he gathered himself. He is focused on reaching poor and underserved kids who might never find their way to a big science center like the Exploratorium.
PBS NewsHour correspondent Spencer Michels visits both Sudran's down and dirty workshop and its upscale cousin across town to look at what kind of science education kids need and what works. duration 26:46 STEREO TVRE
2:00 amWashington Week [#5241H] Just as the cherry blossoms were blooming in Washington DC, there was an unusual outbreak of bipartisanship on Capitol Hill.
* Nearly four months after the tragic shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School, the Senate voted today to take up debate on tough new gun legislation. The bipartisan bill to expand background checks was proposed by Senators Joe Manchin (D-WV) and Patrick Toomey (R-PA). Earlier in the week, a number of GOP senators had threatened to filibuster any attempt on new gun restrictions. Ed O'Keefe of The Washington Post will have the latest on the highly-charged debate and the outlook for passage given Republican control of the House.
*On Wednesday President Obama unveiled a $3.8 trillion budget blueprint that aims to reduce the deficit, raise taxes on the wealthy, and trim entitlement programs, including Social Security and Medicare. John Harwood of CNBC and The New York Times will have analysis of the president's first budget of his second term that has rankled Republicans and some among his own Democratic base.
* On the same day the president released his budget, he hosted a White House dinner for a dozen Senate Republicans to discuss the economy as well as guns and immigration reform. President Obama is hoping this type of outreach to conservatives will help break through the gridlock and jumpstart his bold, second-term agenda which is sputtering. John Dickerson of Slate Magazine and CBS News and Alexis Simendinger of RealClearPolitics will take a closer look at the political calculations and how they might play out in the months to come. duration 26:46 STEREO TVRE

3:00 amAmerican Masters [#2008] Carol Burnett: A Woman of Character America in the 1960s and 70s was in turmoil. The civil rights struggle, the war in Vietnam and the sexual revolution defined a nation in conflict. But at 10 o'clock every Saturday night, in dorms and dens, in living rooms and bedrooms across the country, Americans watched "The Carol Burnett Show." For 11 years, the wacky performer yelled like Tarzan and won -- and sometimes broke -- our hearts with her edgy, always sympathetic, characters. She could fall down a flight of stairs or hold her own in a duet with Julie Andrews. Yet, as with so many brilliant comedians, hers was a difficult childhood. A glimpse of something deeper and darker began to emerge in the dramatic career that followed her TV variety show. duration 1:26:46 STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: none)

What are these new manufacturing jobs? And what will these new opportunities mean for wages, unions, new workers and the middle class? This week's report is the fourth in our series "Main Street" series. Maria Hinojosa anchors. duration 26:46 STEREO TVRE
