    Pioneers of Television [#202H] Westerns Known everywhere as the quintessential American cultural identity, Westerns filled small screens across the country night after night and were some of the most successful television shows in history. Fess Parker's portrayal of Daniel Boone and Davy Crockett channeled the bravery, independence, honesty and rugged individualism of a young nation - and made Walt Disney enough money to build an empire. Westerns also gave viewers James Garner, who starred in the giant television hit "Maverick," where he developed the reluctant hero character that would cement his successful TV and film career. Parker and Garner tell their stories, and Linda Evans recalls how two strong female characters emerged with her onscreen interaction with Barbara Stanwyck in "The Big Valley." This episode also examines the success of Robert Conrad in "The Wild Wild West," the popularity of "Bonanza" and the creation of the classic series "Gunsmoke" with James Arness - one of the longest-running television series of all time. duration 56:46   STEREO TVG

    HILLARY CLINTON'S NEXT MOVE - Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton drew national attention when she delivered her first major domestic policy speech in San Francisco at the American Bar Association's convention on Monday.

Also in California, a prisoner-led hunger strike protesting conditions in isolation units stretches into its 6th week.
    SHASTA DAM EXPANSION - A controversial $1 billion plan to add as much as 18 feet to the height of Shasta Dam has environmentalists, Native Americans, and agricultural interests at odds. Supporters say it would be a major boost to California's water supply but it would inundate sites sacred to the Winnemem Wintu and require the relocation of roads and property owners near Shasta Lake.
    Guests: Carla Marinucci, San Francisco Chronicle; Michael Montgomery, KQED News and Center for Investigative Reporting; Craig Miller, KQED Science Editor.
    TOM STEYER INTERVIEW - KQED's Scott Shafer talks with San Francisco billionaire and green energy advocate Tom Steyer.

    Moyers & Company [#232H] How People Power Generates Change With our democracy threatened by plutocrats and the politicians in their pockets more than ever, the antidote to organized money is organized people. It takes time and effort, but across the country, grass roots democracy is growing. Individuals are banding together, organizing toward common goals and demanding change - and often delivering it. On this encore broadcast, Bill sits with three organizers leading the way.
    Marshall Ganz is a social movement legend who dropped out of Harvard to become a volunteer during Mississippi's Freedom Summer of 1964. He then joined forces with Cesar Chavez of the United Farmworkers, protecting workers who picked crops for pennies in California's fields and orchards. Ganz also had a pivotal role organizing students and volunteers for Barack Obama's historic 2008 presidential campaign. Now 70, he's still organizing across the United States and the Middle East, and back at Harvard, teaching students from around the world about what it takes to beat Goliath.
    Later on the broadcast, economic equality advocates Rachel LaForest, executive director of Right to the City, and Madeline Janis, co-founder and national policy director of Los Angeles Alliance for a New Economy, discuss with Bill how social action can change both policy and lives. Janis led the fight for a living wage in Los Angeles; LaForest fights for fair and affordable housing across the country.
