We devote our full program this week to the topic of gun violence in our communities.

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."

2:00 amWashington 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. duration 26:46 STEREO TVRE

3:00 amEdward & Wallis - A Story of Love and Destiny Many princes who were born to be kings have vowed to be true to their lady loves. However, in a thousand years of the British monarchy only one has dared to resign his crown for a woman's love. This documentary is the real history of a man born to be king who refused to behave like one. 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
4:00 amAmerican Masters [#2602H] Sister Rosetta Tharpe: The Godmother of Rock & Roll During the 1940s, 50s and 60s, Southern-born, Chicago-raised and New York-made Sister Rosetta Tharpe introduced the spiritual passion of her gospel music into the secular world of popular rock 'n roll, inspiring the male icons of the genre. This flamboyant African-American gospel superstar, with her spectacular virtuosity on the newly electrified guitar, was a natural-born performer and a rebel - one of the most important singer-musicians of the 20th century. She is acknowledged as a major influence not only on generations of black musicians - including Chuck Berry, Little Richard, Isaac Hayes and Etta James - but also on white stars such as Elvis Presley, Jerry Lee Lewis, Carl Perkins and Johnny Cash. duration 56:46 STEREO TVPG
