    Last Emperor (1987) Academy Award-winning biography about Pu Yi, the last emperor of China. Written by Mark Peploe and co-written and directed by Bernardo Bertolucci, it received 9 Oscars and was voted Best Picture in 1987. The film opens in 1950 with Pu Yi's re-entry into the just-proclaimed People's Republic of China. He is a prisoner and war criminal, captured when the Soviet Union entered the Pacific War in 1945. Pu Yi attempts suicide which only renders him unconscious, and in a flashback, he relives his first entry into the Forbidden City. Pu Yi's remarkable story is told through a series of chronological flashbacks beginning with his early life and upbringing in the Forbidden City, his brother's childish challenge to his status of Emperor and his arranged marriage. In the flash-forward to his prison life, Pu Yi is interrogated and shown newsreels of Japanese war crimes in Manchuria and the defeat of Japan, and he realizes his need to assume responsibility for his complicity in Japanese atrocities. The film stars John Lone as Pu Yi and also features Joan Chen, Peter O'Toole and Ric Young. duration 2:32:49   STEREO TVPG

    Moyers & Company [#317H] Stuck in the Internet Slow Lane? For better or worse, the Internet has become democracy's information superhighway, an endless bounty of valuable data and insight or the biggest timewaster of all time. And for years, the government has upheld the principle of "net neutrality," the belief that everyone should have equal access to the web without preferential treatment.
    But now, Tom Wheeler, chairman of the Federal Communications Commission and a former cable and telecommunications top gun, is circulating potential new rules that reportedly would put a price tag on climbing aboard the Internet. The largest and richest providers, giant corporations such as Verizon and Comcast - in mid-takeover of Time Warner Cable - like the idea. They could afford to buy their way to the front of the line. Everyone else - nonprofit groups, startups, the smaller, independent content creators, and everyday users - would have to move to the rear, and the net would be neutral no more.
    This week, Bill Moyers speaks with two keen observers of media and the world of cyberspace. David Carr covers the busy intersection of media with business, government and culture for The New York Times. He writes a popular weekly column, "Media Equation" and is a former editor of alternative newspapers in Washington, DC, and Minneapolis. "The open consumer Web," Carr has written, "has been a motor of American innovation."
    Susan Crawford is a visiting professor at Harvard Law School, contributor to Bloomberg View and author of, Captive Audience: The Telecom Industry and Monopoly Power in the New Gilded Age. The net neutrality uproar, she wrote recently, "is appropriate: In bowing before an onslaught of corporate lobbying the commission has chosen short-term political expediency over the long-term interest of the country."

    An Interview With Gov. Jerry Brown
    Gov. Jerry Brown is weeks away from what is likely the final campaign of a political career that spans nearly half a century. He is seeking an unprecedented fourth term — 40 years after he first won the job. The Democrat is embracing something he famously rejected in the 1970s: tradition and the long view of California. KQED senior political editor John Myers caught up with Brown at the Historic Governor's Mansion in Sacramento.

    The popularity of Airbnb has exploded in the Bay Area and beyond. The San Francisco-based company facilitates short-term rentals for travelers. But both landlords and housing activists are worried about the impact in the already tight housing market, and many are calling for regulation. KQED's Scott Shafer hears from San Francisco Chronicle real estate reporter Carolyn Said about the issue.
