    Moyers & Company [#111H] Moving Beyond War Nine years after Baghdad erupted in "shock and awe," we're once again hearing in America the drumbeat for war in the Middle East. Now, the bull's-eye is on Iran. But what we need, more than a simple change of target, is a complete change in perspective, says Andrew Bacevich, a West Point graduate and Vietnam veteran-turned-scholar who's become one of the most perceptive observers of America's changing role in the world.
    This week, Bill Moyers and Bacevich explore the futility of "endless" wars and provide a reality check on the rhetoric of American exceptionalism. "Are we so unimaginative, so wedded to the reliance on military means that we cannot conceive of any way to reconcile our differences with groups and nations in the Islamic world, and therefore bring this conflict to an end?" Bacevich asks Moyers. Bacevich also answers the question of whether Iran is a direct threat to America with a definitive no. "Whatever threat Iran poses is very, very limited," he tells Moyers, "and certainly does not constitute any kind of justification for yet another experiment with preventive war."

    Jean-Michel Cousteau: Ocean Adventures [#304^] Call of the Killer Whales: Parts 1 & 2 The most complex marine species on the planet is the orca, the ruler of the ocean. Though they number fewer than 100,000 worldwide, orcas, also called killer whales, extend from the Arctic to the Antarctic, and learning more about them is a global endeavor. In this episode, Jean-Michel Cousteau and his team of explorers travel to both the northern and southern hemispheres as they seek out killer whales in the Atlantic and Pacific oceans. The team discovers that people and orcas share surprising similarities, and even similar needs; they relate their findings to the captivity and release of Keiko, from Free Willy fame, whose survival depended on pioneering efforts to re-introduce Keiko into the wild. Intriguing detours in the expedition arise, leading to critical examinations of our environment, of the food on our dinner tables, even of our own health. duration 1:55:39   SRND51 TVG (Secondary audio: DVI)

    Triangle Fire: American Experience [#2307] On March 25th, 1911, a fire broke out in the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory in New York's Greenwich Village. The blaze ripped through the congested loft; huge piles of trimmings fed the flames. Petrified workers desperately tried to make their way downstairs, but the factory owners kept the doors on the 9th floor locked and the woefully inadequate fire escape soon crumpled. Hundreds of horrified on-lookers arrived just in time to see young men and women jumping from the windows. By the time the fire had burned itself out, 146 people were dead. Less than two years earlier, the workers of the factory had been leaders in an industry-wide strike to protest dismal wages and dangerous working conditions. Despite unlikely support from some of the wealthiest women in the city, including Anne Morgan, most of the workers returned to the their shops without having their demands met. It took the tragedy of the fire and the ensuing public outrage to force government action. The landmark legislation that followed gave New Yorkers the most comprehensive workplace safety laws in the country. duration 56:46   STEREO TV14 (Secondary audio: none)

    Live from the Artists Den [#305H] Squeeze As teenagers on the South London Scene in the 1970s, childhood friends Chris Difford and Glenn Tilbrook formed Squeeze, the pioneering UK band that saw them dubbed "The New Lennon and McCartney.

Bryant Park provided a picturesque setting for a secret performance by UK pop legends Squeeze on a warm summer night. The groundbreaking band played hits spanning their career, including "Is That Love," "Pulling Mussels (From The Shell)", and "Tempted" in celebration of their latest album, Spot the Difference, which features new recordings of Squeeze classics. duration 56:46   STEREO TVPG

    Tavis Smiley [#2568Z] "Made Visible" Panel Discussion, Part 1 of 3
    Poverty in America officially has a new face: women. More than half of the 46.2 million Americans living in poverty are women, and 29% of adult women are more likely to be poor than adult men. From 2009 to 2010, more than 1 million additional children also fell into poverty, and the numbers continue to rise. < br />This month, Tavis convenes a diverse all-woman panel of thought leaders, opinion makers and influencers to examine the growing numbers of women and children falling into poverty. The discussion airs over three nights. Panelists discuss the financial, social and economic disparities women face and how solutions to these issues must be a public policy priority during this election season. Additionally, the panelists make recommendations for national action to move women and children out of poverty.
    In Part 1, panelists discuss the financial, social and economic disparities that women face in the US. Guests include: Nely Galan, founder of The Adelante Movement; Dr. Julianne Malveaux, economist and president of Bennett College; Suze Orman, a leading authority on personal finance; Hilda Solis, 25th US Secretary of Labor; Cecilia FireThunder, former president of the Oglala Sioux Tribe; Faye Wattleton, former national president of Planned Parenthood; Randi Weingarten, president of the American Federation of Teachers; and Sheryl WuDunn, Pulitzer Prize-winning writer and co-author of Half the Sky.
