1:30 amOut of Order Now more than ever, American citizens are discontented and disillusioned with national politics, with approval ratings for Congress consistently ranking low regardless of the party in power. Senior politicians also note the disappearance of the collegiality they once shared with peers of differing political ideologies. As a result, the ability to discuss issues from varying points of view and negotiate solutions, appears to be fading from the American political process.
Among many topics, this program addresses the decline in civil discourse and the news media's role in it, partisan gridlock, gerrymandering, vanishing commitment to reasonable compromise, the vilification of moderates and declining civic engagement. It relies on interviews with a broad range of political experts and observers from journalists, academics and political strategists to senior elected officials. They include: journalist Bob Schieffer (CBS News), Sen. Mark Warner (D-VA), Sen. Susan Collins (R-MA), Fmr Sen. Evan Bayh (D-IN), Fmr Sen. Alan Simpson (R-WY), Fmr Sen. John Warner (R-VA) . duration 26:46 STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: none)
2:00 amWashington Week with Gwen Ifill [#5301H] President Obama is just six months into his second term and for most of that time his ambitious agenda has been overshadowed by a number of unexpected events and controversies. From the attention on gun legislation in the wake of the Newtown school shooting, to the string of controversies involving the IRS, Justice Department and NSA leaker Edward Snowden, the president seems to be facing hurdles and distractions at every turn.
As the president tries to focus on addressing his key legislative priorities, Washington remains extremely polarized and the partisan divide on Capitol Hill continues. Even the bipartisan immigration reform bill that passed the Senate faces an uphill battle in the House.
The Washington stalemate isn't going unnoticed by voters. A recent Gallup Poll found nearly 4 in 5 Americans, 78%, disapprove of the way Congress is handling its job, while the President's approval ratings continue to be under 50%.
With the Congressional midterms just 16 months away, the White House recognizes the clock is ticking and the window for Mr. Obama to advance his priorities could be closing. The same is true for lawmakers up for re-election in 2014 who are aware every vote they cast could help or hurt their chances of reelection.
The White House is also dealing with foreign policy challenges in Syria and escalating unrest in Egypt while the draw-down of US troops from Afghanistan continues.
Gwen Ifill examines the successes and challenges for Congress and the Obama administration over the first half of 2013 plus takes a look ahead at the economic outlook for the remainder of the year with: Susan Davis of USA Today, John Dickerson of Slate Magazine and CBS News, David Wessel of The Wall Street Journal, and Jeff Zeleny of ABC News. duration 26:46 STEREO TVRE

3:00 amGreat Old Amusement Parks Long before giant theme parks and computer-controlled thrill rides, America was punctuated by beautiful, charming amusement parks where many families gathered for a cool escape on a hot summer day. This program celebrates these pre- Disney parks - some that continue to thrive, as well as a few that are now part of history. It catches a ride on old wooden roller coasters, vintage bumper cars and many other cool classic rides as it looks at amusing amusement park history and discovers what's so special about these amazing places.
The show visits Playland in Rye, New York, and Kennywood in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania - the only two parks in the country recognized as National Historic Landmarks. At Northern California's Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk, viewers hop on the antique Loeff carousel (circa 1911), where brave riders can still lean out and grab for the "brass ring." The special also travels to Holiday World in Santa Claus, Indiana - a traditional old "themed" amusement park, where sections of the park represent different holidays such as Christmas, Halloween and the Fourth of July. It's one of the few places where people can talk to Santa in August.
Using his trademark "scrapbook documentary" style, award-winning producer Rick Sebak takes viewers across the country in this wonderful celebration of old wooden and mechanical getaways and the communities that support them. Viewers find out how the parks have changed over the years and how they've remained the same. duration 56:46 STEREO TVG
