    Hitler On Trial In the summer of 1931, a young lawyer called Hans Litten put rising political star, Adolf Hitler, in the witness box of a Berlin court. He wanted to expose Hitler's hypocrisy and secret commitment to violence and shatter the Nazi party's political respectability. In an audacious and hostile cross-examination, Hitler was forced to defend his beliefs, his ambitions, his methods and the essence of Nazism, in open court. Litten wanted to challenge the public as Germany and the rest of Europe seemed to be sleep-walking to fascism. If Litten's warnings had been taken seriously, Hitler's financial support might well have collapsed. There would have been no Nazi election victory. No Reichstag fire, no Third Reich, no Final Solution. Litten didn't win, but Hitler never forgot and once the Nazis were in power, Litten was arrested and imprisoned in Dachau concentration camp where he ultimately committed suicide. A brave and complex individual, Litten was left-wing, Jewish, and passionately committed to the idea of justice. This documentary explores Litten's personal story while also examining the broader historical and ethical debate. It discovers the consequences of Litten's heroism both for himself and for those closest to him, tracking his tragic journey from court room to suicide. duration 59:38   STEREO TVPG

    Secrets of the Dead [#1206] Bones of the Buddha This show is a modern day Indiana Jones story: a tale of deception, treasure, intrepid adventurers and international realpolitik. Did a 19th-century British landowner really discover gold, jewels and the charred bones of the Lord Buddha in an underground chamber on his estate? When Colonial estate manager, Willie Peppe, set his workers digging at a mysterious hill in Northern India in 1898, he had no idea what they'd find. Just over 20 feet down, they made an amazing discovery: a huge stone coffer, containing five reliquary jars, over 1000 separate jewels, and some ash and bone. One of the jars had an inscription that appeared to say that these were the remains of the Buddha himself. This seemed to be the most extraordinary find in Indian archaeology. But doubt and scandal have hung over this amazing find for over 100 years. For some, the whole thing is an elaborate hoax. For others, it is no less than the final resting place of the leader of one of the world's great religions, who died nearly 2,500 years ago. duration 56:46   STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: none)
  • 5:00 am
    Bhutan - Taking The Middle Path to Happiness This program examines Bhutan's policy of "Gross National Happiness," which emphasizes environmental and cultural preservation, economic development through hydroelectric power, and transparent and honest governance. The Himalayan kingdom's commitment to these four pillars, particularly its approaches to "good governance" and sustainable energy practices, set it apart from most of the world. Prime Minister Lynpo Yeshey Zimba and Jigme Drukpa, the Director of the National Academy of Performing Arts, articulate the importance of each pillar. During the film, government officials and locals explain the meaning of "the middle path," a concept rooted in their Buddhism-influenced view of the world. Happiness and enlightenment, they believe, result from neither overindulging in the world's pleasures nor rejecting the world's goodness. duration 56:46   STEREO TVG
