    Washington Week [#5142H] * Mitt Romney intensified his efforts to appeal to staunch conservatives and women now that he is the presumptive Republican presidential nominee, following Rick Santorum's exit from the race. Some Republicans have been reluctant to support the former Massachusetts governor because they consider him too moderate, and recent polls indicate women voters favoring President Obama over Mr. Romney. But it was the comments made by a Democratic strategist questioning Mitt Romney's reliance on his wife Ann's advice on women's economic issues that ignited the biggest firestorm of criticism from both sides of the aisle this week. We will take a closer look at the new pivot point in the 2012 presidential election, the "war on women," and how American politics have become so angry and divisive with Dan Balz of The Washington Post, Beth Reinhard of National Journal, and John Harris of Politico.
    * In Syria, the United Nations is reporting the ceasefire between government and rebel forces remains "very fragile." Syria has kept troops and heavy weapons in select towns in violation of the terms of the peace plan prompting the UN security council to consider deploying monitors to the region. But will that be enough to turn a truce into a stable peace? We will get analysis from Doyle McManus of the Los Angeles Times.

    Iceberg That Sank The Titanic Many millennia ago, a snowflake landed at the head of a glacier in the Arctic Circle. In an instant, it turned from a symbol of purity to an agent of death as it triggered the creation of an iceberg - spat from the tongue of the mother glacier and into the ocean. Cameras explore every face of this monstrous glacier, revealing an arterial network of melt-water rivers and frozen masses of rocks and vegetation suspended in the ice, and also the nature of the iceberg. There is a duality to its character. Long before it was a life-taker, it was home to an abundance of arctic wildlife. Passing down through the Arctic Circle and into the North Atlantic, the iceberg was set on an unstoppable collision course that would result in over 1400 deaths. Were warnings heeded? Could the crew of the Titanic have done more to save the passengers - perhaps using the iceberg as a giant lifeboat? duration 48:31   STEREO TVG

    Titanic with Len Goodman In this program, Len Goodman, a judge on "Dancing with the Stars," discovers how the impact of the Titanic disaster is still felt a century after the ship sank. Goodman has his own connection to the ship. Before he was a dancer, he was a welder for Harland and Woolf. This was company that, from 1909 to 1912, built the Titanic in Belfast. Goodman worked for the same company 50 years later, at their yard in East London. To mark the centenary of the Titanic tragedy in 2012, Goodman explores the ship's 100-year legacy. He learns how for victims' families and for the survivors themselves, the sinking was just the beginning of the story. Generations later, those stories are still unfolding as Goodman meets the modern-day descendants to learn how, 100 years after it sank, the Titanic's legacy lives on. duration 56:46   STEREO TVPG
