    Baking with Julia [#209] Leslie Mackie Chef Julia Child observes as pastry chef and owner of Seattle's Macrina Bakery Leslie Mackie bakes an assortment of tarts and pies. First, Leslie demonstrates how to make the classic pie dough that will form the base of these desserts; some of the dough is used raw, while other crusts are pre-baked in order to avoid a soggy crust. This dough can be frozen for up to a month. Once the shells are prepared, she creates a classic French apple tart, a berry yogurt tart, and a blueberry nectarine tart garnished with chopped almonds. duration 24:54   STEREO TVG

    Ready Jet Go! [#124H] Which Moon Is Best?/Detective Mindy "Which Moon is Best?" - Sean wants to be the first to walk on a moon, like his hero Neil Armstrong. When Sydney points out that 12 astronauts have already walked on our Moon, Sean thinks that rather than be the 13th to walk on OUR moon, why not be the first to walk on ANOTHER moon in our solar system? Sure, but which moon? The kids decide to compare the frozen moons Europa, which orbits Jupiter, and Enceladus, which orbits Saturn. They get help from Carrot and Celery, who fly them to each one, and Sean gets to walk on them. Curriculum: The gas giants Jupiter and Saturn each have around 60 moons - each of them unique. Interestingly, each gas giant has a frozen ice moon that contains a warmer liquid ocean under the surface: Jupiter's moon Europa, and Saturn's moon Enceladus. Each moon has its own similarities and differences. "Detective Mindy" - When Mitchell's mother declares the kitchen counter a "black hole" because she can't find her sunglasses and she's sure she left them there, Mitchell takes up the case of the black hole kitchen counter.

As they learn about what a black hole really is, Mitchell discovers that science holds enough mysteries to keep him busy for many years. Curriculum: Black holes are strange little holes in space that are like vacuum cleaners that use gravity (instead of suction) to suck things in. A black hole is what remains when a massive star dies. They send out no light and have very strong gravity. Once a planet or star has been sucked into the black hole, it cannot escape, and compresses to a very small size. duration 28:46   SRND51 TVY (Secondary audio: DVI)

    Washington Week [#5651] Every once in a while, one moment makes Washington pause. Partisanship melts away, if only for that brief moment. This week it was a charity baseball game, an annual tradition that pits Republicans and Democrats against each other for a good-natured competition and America's favorite pastime.
    * Everything changed early Wednesday morning when a gunman opened fire on the Republican team practicing on a suburban field. Rep. Steve Scalise, the number three Republican in the House of Representatives, was critically injured along with four others.
    * As the game goes on and Washington returns to its usual squabbles, the investigation into Russian meddling in the presidential election has expanded to include President Trump.
    * Special counsel Robert Mueller is reportedly looking into whether Mr. Trump obstructed justice in the Russia case after firing FBI Director James Comey. Just one day after the shooting when Trump praised all the public servants working in government, the president took to Twitter to bemoan the "very bad and conflicted people" investigating him. On Wednesday the Senate voted 97-2 to restrict the president's ability to roll back sanctions to punish Russia for interfering in the 2016 election.
    What does this unusual week tell us about civility, credibility and trust in Washington? Robert Costa will discuss with: Alexis Simendinger of Real Clear Politics, Jeff Zeleny of CNN, Erica Werner of the Associated Press, Geoff Bennett of NPR, and Adam Entous of The Washington Post.

    Forever Chinatown: A Local USA/Truly CA Special This documentary presents the story of unknown, self-taught 81-year-old artist Frank Wong who has spent the past four decades recreating his fading memories by building romantic, extraordinarily detailed miniature models of the San Francisco Chinatown rooms of his youth. It takes the journey of one individual and maps it to a rapidly changing urban neighborhood from 1940s to present day.
    A meditation on memory, community, and preserving one's own legacy, Frank's three-dimensional miniature dioramas become rare portals into a historic neighborhood and a window to the artist's filtered, romanticized memories and emotional struggles. In his compromise with immortality, Frank announces plans to cremate his exquisite works with him upon his death in order to 'live inside them forever' in his afterlife.

    People's Hospital, The A hospital is not usually thought of as a place of warmth and community. The People's Hospital, a documentary directed by Jim Choi and Chihiro Wimbush and produced by CAAM, is an immersion into a space in San Francisco's Chinatown that is vital to the well-being of the community. Located in North America's oldest Chinatown, the hospital serves the most vulnerable - the poor, immigrant, monolingual, and elderly. Chinese Hospital began as a medical dispensary in 1899 during the height of the Chinese Exclusion Act when other hospitals refused to accept Chinese patients. It was destroyed by the 1906 earthquake and fire, and reopened in 1925 due to community support. From the food to the languages that medical professionals speak, the idea of a hospital is transformed from a sterile environment to a place that some call home. The film uses enlightening interviews with former mayor Willie Brown, the last interviews with the late community activist Rose Pak, and medical professionals who work in the hospital, some of whom were born there. The film documents the unveiling of the new medical center in 2016 - the last standing independent hospital in San Francisco - to much excitement. The film shows that the heart and soul of a community can be in the unlikeliest of places. duration 27:18   STEREO
