1:30 amWashington Week [#5333H] While snow storms and weather delays seemed to be the big story along the Atlantic coast this week, there was plenty of news being made in the nation's capital.
* On Capitol Hill, Congress passed a "clean" debt ceiling bill and approved a measure to restore pension benefits to military retirees. Republicans hoping to avoid more bad press like during the 2013 government shutdown and with an eye on the 2014 midterm election, retreated from their original strategy to link any hike in the debt-limit to measures designed to curb the Affordable Care Act or approve the Keystone XL pipeline. The House passed the extension with mostly Democratic votes and GOP lawmakers in the Senate were forced to overcome a filibuster threat and political maneuvers by tea party favorite Sen. Ted Cruz (TX).
* The Obama administration announced another delay in the implementation of a portion of the Affordable Care Act giving some small businesses an extra year to comply with the mandate that requires employers provide health insurance for employees. And just-released health care enrollment numbers indicate the new law seems to have overcome the initial rocky rollout and is gaining traction with Americans.
Joining Gwen Ifill for a special reporters roundtable on the politics of the debt ceiling debate, GOP positioning ahead of the 2014 midterm elections, and the White House's continuing problems with the Affordable Care Act: Molly Ball of The Atlantic, Alexis Simendinger of RealClearPolitics, and Karen Tumulty of The Washington Post. duration 26:46 STEREO TVRE

A Dry Run for Coho Salmon
California's worst drought on record is taking a toll not only on fields and farms but also on iconic native species, including the endangered Central California Coast coho salmon. Low water levels have prevented many adult coho from reaching their spawning grounds in Lagunitas Creek in Marin County. Last week's rains brought a measure of relief, raising water levels enough to allow some salmon through. But as KQED reporter Dan Brekke found in talking with a fish biologist at the Marin Municipal Water District, the relief may be temporary.

Concerns Over Pedestrian Safety After a Spike in Fatalities
A spike in fatal pedestrian traffic accidents around the Bay Area has renewed attention on both street design and driver behavior. A fatal crash this week on San Francisco's Van Ness Street brings this year's tally up to three for the city. And last year was a particular deadly year for San Jose, where 26 pedestrian fatalities were logged — the highest in nearly two decades. What's behind the spike and what can be done to calm traffic?

Tenth Anniversary of Same Sex Marriage — An Interview with Kate Kendell
It's been ten years since then-Mayor Gavin Newsom allowed marriage licenses for gay couples at City Hall in San Francisco. Same sex marriage has been on a long and winding journey since then — from a voter proposition to ban gay marriage to a U.S. Supreme Court decision that struck down part of the Defense of Marriage Act. Now seventeen states and the District of Columbia allow same sex marriage, and public opinion is rapidly changing. Scott Shafer hears from the National Center for Lesbian Rights Executive Director Kate Kendell about her work on this civil rights issue and where it's heading next. duration 27:46 STEREO

3:00 amSecrets of the Dead [#1001] Churchill's Deadly Decision In the summer of 1940 Winston Churchill faced a terrible dilemma. France had just surrendered and only the English Channel stood between the Nazi's and Britain. Germany was poised to seize the entire French fleet, one of the biggest in the world. With these ships in his hands, Hitler's threat to invade Britain could become a reality. Churchill had to make a choice. He could either trust the promises of the new French government that they would never hand over their ships to Hitler. Or he could make sure that the ships never joined the German navy by destroying them himself. Secrets of the Dead: Churchill's Deadliest Decision reveals the darkest side of Britain's Finest Hour. Some call his decision a turning point in the war, others call it a terrible betrayal and a war crime. This is the story of what Churchill did next, and why; and how 1,300 French sailors died as a result in what the French still call 'our Pearl Harbour'. In the words of French survivors, some of whom still regard Churchill as a war criminal, and one of the British sailors who opened fire on his former allies, this is the forgotten story of Churchill's deadliest decision - to sink the French Fleet. duration 56:46 STEREO TVPG-V (Secondary audio: none)
4:00 amGreatest Raid of World War II In December 1942, 10 young marines set off to raid the port of Bordeaux in Nazi-occupied France. Their mission - Operation Frankton - was to blow up the ships that provided essential supplies for the German war machine. To reach their target, the men used so-called 'Cockleshell' canoes, specially designed for covert infiltration into enemy harbours. They had to paddle for nights on end up 70 miles of the largest and most heavily defended estuary in Europe - Gironde.
An audacious operation, they succeeded in blowing up one ship and severely damaging 4 others and according to Winston Churchill, shortened World War II by 6 months. Of the 10, 6 men were captured and executed by the Germans and 2 died of hypothermia. At the same time, a network of British trained spies were already in Bordeaux, preparing to strike the same target. Were these competing missions the result of the 'fog of war' or Whitehall rivalry? One thing is for certain, 12 young men risked their lives in an operation that should never have taken place.
In this documentary, former member of the Special Boat Service turned politician Lord Ashdown uses his experience to shed light on the challenges faced by the 'Cockleshell Heroes', recreating their incredible journey up the Gironde estuary. He also looks at the how the battle inside Whitehall raged almost as hard as the war against Nazi Germany. Churchill had created a series of competing armies, harnessing the spirit of individualism and ingenuity in the fight against Hitler - an approach that also led to confusion, suspicion and distrust. Using dramatic reconstructions to recreate the daring raid, Cockleshell Heroes brings to life a mission that would come to symbolize the fighting spirit of the British, and throws new light on the institutional rivalry that would ultimately lead the country from its darkest hours to victory. duration 50:32 STEREO TVPG

9:30 amMexico -- One Plate at a Time with Rick Bayless [#902H] Oaxaca's Live-Fire Cooking Everything tastes better cooked over a wood or charcoal fire - at least that's the Oaxacan credo. From soup to barbacoa, burning embers influence the flavor of Oaxaca's food in just the right ways. For starters, Rick guides us through the "taco corridor" at the 20 de Noviembre market just off the main square in Oaxaca. We can almost taste the richly-burnished chiles and onions as they grill alongside super-thinly sliced beef and pork and robust chorizo sausages. Then we see hot rocks plucked from the glowing embers and dropped into hot soup for making caldo de piedra (stone soup), a specialty from the village of San Felipe Usila.
La Capilla, a campestre (open air) restaurant, in the town of Zaachilla, has served lamb and goat barbacoa for more than 47 years. Rick's so enamored with the process of burying the chile-seasoned meat in glowing embers that he creates his own version on the backyard grill. Served with Oaxacan pasilla tomatillo salsa, there's meat, fire and smoke in every bite. duration 26:46 STEREO TVG

1:30 pmHealing A.D.D. with Dr. Daniel Amen ADD or ADHD is a national health crisis that continues to grow-yet it remains one of the most misunderstood and incorrectly treated illnesses today. Kids and adults are put on powerful stimulant medications in short office visits without any biological information, and the stories of these medications hurting children and adults are common and persistent.
In this national public television program, psychiatrist Daniel Amen and his wife nurse Tana Amen take a completely new look at ADD and explain 7 unique types based on the extensive brain imaging work of the Amen Clinics on tens of thousands of ADD patients. Treating all people with ADD the same invites failure and frustration and can be a disaster, as the traditional treatments that make two of the types better can make the other 5 types worse.
The show is divided into three parts. In Part One, the myths and misconceptions about ADD will be discussed as well as the hallmark ADD symptoms. In Part Two, the 7 different types of ADD will be described in detail. And, in Part Three Dr. and Mrs. Amen we'll give you a clear method for Healing ADD, including the best natural treatments. They are not opposed to medication, but think it's smart to start with lifestyle and natural treatments first. duration 1:57:22 STEREO TVG

9:48 pmRun Silent, Run Deep [#1022] (1958) This taut WWII submarine drama features a smart script, strong performances and well-executed action.

About a year later, Richardson is given command of the USS Nerka, with an existing crew loyal to their Executive Officer Lt. Jim Bledsoe (Burt Lancaster), who many think should have been given the helm instead. The tension between the two professional submariners and the hostility of the crew towards their new skipper play against the captain's single-minded determination for revenge against the destroyer dubbed Bongo Pete.
