    THIS WEEK in Northern California [#2444H] August 23, 2013 OAKLAND TRIES TO EVEN THE ODDS FOR AFRICAN AMERICAN BOYS
    In a collaboration between KQED and the San Francisco Chronicle series Even Odds, we offer an in-depth look at the daunting challenges faced by African American males in Oakland, and the city's attempt to address them. 3 years ago, the Oakland Unified School District faced an alarming statistic - more than half of its African American boys would not graduate. The troubling dropout rate had many factors at play: poverty, crime, high suspension rates and rising absenteeism. The district responded by opening the Office of African American Male Achievement. Its mission is to improve academic outcomes for black boys by pairing them with black men. While race-based, community mentorship is not new, for a public school system it was controversial. The early results are encouraging, but it remains to be seen whether this novel approach will actually work. The program begins with a documentary segment, followed by a panel discussion. Host: Joshua Johnson.
    Guests: Jill Tucker, San Francisco Chronicle; Tiago Robinson, Oakland High School; Pedro Noguera, New York University.

    Washington Week with Gwen Ifill [#5308H] President Obama returned from his New England vacation to a myriad of overseas and national security issues.
    In Egypt, the interim government continues its crackdown on the Muslim Brotherhood amidst the release of former President Hosni Mubarak from prison. He still faces a retrial in connection with the deaths of protestors during the Egyptian uprisings of 2011 that led to his ouster from office. How might these latest developments play as the Obama administration wrestles with whether to cut aid to the country due to the recent violence?
    In Syria, fresh reports of a chemical gas attack against civilians, allegedly by forces loyal to President Bashar al-Assad, have again put the spotlight on whether the US should intervene further.
    And a new declassified report this week revealed the National Security Agency did in fact illegally collect tens of thousands of emails from Americans as part of its national surveillance program. Will the program come under further scrutiny when Congress returns from recess next month?
    The impact of all three stories and the US government reaction is our focus this week as Gwen is joined by Tom Gjelten of NPR and Alexis Simendinger of Real Clear Politics. In addition, Michael Fletcher of The Washington Post, in a special feature for Smithsonian Magazine, takes a look back at the 1963 March on Washington. He'll recount the stories of participants and the lessons of that time fifty years ago.

    Jack Lemmon: America's Everyman [#401] Jack Lemmon was born in Boston, graduated from Harvard and then headed for New York City to become a professional actor. His first acting roles were in soap operas and live TV dramas. But it was his appearance in a Broadway revival of Room Service that led to a co-starring role with Judy Holliday in his first movie, It Should Happen to You (1954). His unmistakable intellect and his boyish, average looks played against him becoming a romantic leading man. But his live TV and comedy training gave him the perfect timing, the precise emotional balance and the total believability that showed in films as diverse as Mister Roberts (1955), Some Like It Hot (1959), The Apartment (1960), Days of Wine and Roses (1962), and The Odd Couple (1968). In his later films, Save the Tiger (1973), The China Syndrome (1979) and Glengarry Glenn Ross (1992), Jack exposed the darker side of the American way of life.
    Jack Lemmon made more than 60 films and received numerous awards, including 8 Academy Award Nominations and 2 Oscars. Narrated on-camera by Jack Lemmon, this profile includes interviews with Lemmon's son, actor Chris Lemmon. Also appearing are such legends as Jack's life-long friend, the writer and director Billy Wilder, writer-director Garson Kanin, drama teacher Uta Hagen, and actor Gregory Peck. Actors Charles Durning, Maureen Stapleton, Betty Garrett, and Kevin Spacey, writer Neil Simon, director Delbert Mann, and other Hollywood luminaries help complete the profile. Clips from some of Lemmon's major films as well as archival footage add to this portrait of one of America's most illustrious and productive stars.

    Burt Lancaster: Daring to Reach [#406] Burt Lancaster went from streetwise tough to art-collector liberal-activist, from circus-acrobat hunk to Academy Award winner. By age 18, Burt was 6'2" and blessed with the athletic physique and dynamic good looks that helped make him famous. A stint in the Army introduced Burt to acting and led him to Hollywood where his first release, The Killers (1946), propelled him to stardom at age 32. He took control of his own career and seldom faltered. Upon his death in 1994, four-time Academy Award-nominated Lancaster was acknowledged as one of the greatest stars in Hollywood.
    Lancaster's films include Westerns, costume epics and serious contemporary dramas. He starred in swashbucklers like The Crimson Pirate (1952), and in more risky roles, like the aging alcoholic in Come Back Little Sheba (1952) . Other acting triumphs were The Rose Tattoo (1955), The Birdman of Alcatraz (1962), From Here to Eternity (1953), The Rainmaker (1956), The Sweet Smell of Success (1957), Elmer Gantry (1960) - which earned him an Academy Award - and Atlantic City (1980). Those interviewed include: directors Sydney Pollack, Ted Post, and Delbert Mann; actors Rhonda Fleming, Virginia Mayo, Terry Moore, Peter Reigert, Earl Holliman, Jeff Corey, producer James Hill, biographer Gary Fishgall and others.

    Elvis, Aloha from Hawaii Elvis Presley made television and entertainment history with this TV concert special. The performance took place at the Honolulu International Center Arena in Hawaii on January 14, 1973. At 12:30am Hawaiian time, the concert was beamed live via Globecam Satellite to Australia, South Korea, Japan, Thailand, The Philippines, South Vietnam and other countries. It attracted 37.8% of the viewers in Japan, 91.8% in the Philippines, 70% in Hong Kong, and 70-80% of the viewers in Korea. It was seen on a delayed basis in approximately 30 European countries later the same day.
    It did not air in the US until April 4th, when an edited version of the concert, expanded with songs videotaped just after the live event, was presented on NBC. That broadcast attracted 51% of the television viewing audience. In all, it was seen in about 40 countries by 1-to-1.5 billion people. A global smash. Entertainment events presented live via satellite are common today but, in 1973, this was a first. Never before had one performer held the world's attention in such a way. This special presents Elvis Presley at the pinnacle of his superstardom, giving one of the most outstanding concert performances of his career.
