    Moyers & Company [#114H] An Optimist for Our Times Angela Blackwell has spent her adult life advocating practical ways to fulfill America's promise of "life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness" for all. Now, with our middle class struggling, poverty rising, and inequality growing, the founder and chief executive officer of PolicyLink, an influential research center, finds reasons for hope in the face of these hard realities.
    This week Bill Moyers and Blackwell discuss what fuels her optimism. "I'm not discouraged, and I wouldn't even dream of giving up, because we're at a moment right now where I think we have more possibility than I've seen in my adult lifetime," Blackwell tells Moyers. "Part of what I've been feeling is that all the issues are finally on the table. So many people who are being left behind are now in places where they have voice, and influence, and they're forcing their way into the conversation."
    "America doesn't want to talk about race," she states, but says the future "is a five-year-old Latina girl. It is a seven-year-old black boy. What happens to them will determine what America looks like, and so this country, as a democracy, really cannot expect to continue to be proud on the world stage, competitive in the global economy, or having a democracy it can put forward as working in a multi-racial society if we don't invest in the people who are the future."

    Secrets of the Dead [#702Z] Escape from Auschwitz The program uncovers the true story of the spectacular escape from the camp in 1944 by two young Slovak Jews -- Rudolf Vrba and Alfred Wetzler. The Nazis extermination plan relied on the truth about the camp's purpose being kept secret from the outside world. Throughout the five years of the camp's existence there were hundreds of attempts at escape, but nearly all were caught -- and killed. Vrba and Wetzler were the first escapees to reveal the diabolical purpose of Auschwitz to the free world. Their authoritative account of the industrial scale killing at the camp saved thousands of Jewish lives. duration 56:04   STEREO TVPG-V (Secondary audio: DVI)

    Saving The Titanic She was the pride of the British Empire. A leading example of state-of-the-art engineering in a time of groundbreaking scientific and technological innovations on a global scale: the Titanic. Yet she sank in less than three hours after striking an iceberg on April 14, 1912. We all know about the many deaths in the icy waters, the fates of the rich and famous on the ship's maiden voyage and the dramas that played out in the Titanic's last hours. What is less known however is how a team of shipbuilders and engineers attempted to save the stricken vessel. Seeking to answer the question of what happened in the engine and boiler rooms after the collision, this program tells the story of the disaster from below deck, with the action taking place between the time the crew embark the Titanic at Southampton and the eventual sinking of the ship. Based upon eyewitness accounts, this is the story of nine central characters from the engineering crew as they work among the huge, coal-fired furnaces heating the boilers and massive dynamos whirring to satisfy the ship's demand for electricity. Their personal stories of bravery are recounted as the men fought courageously to hold back the power of the sea and keep the power systems running, even when they learned that all was lost. Most of these men died but their actions saved many lives. duration 56:46   STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: none)

    Titanic Belfast: Birthplace of a Legend The tragic end of Titanic is well known. What is less well known is the story of her origin, how and why she was built and by whom. This film, releasing in time for the 100th anniversary of the disaster, tells us many new details of the Titanic. It traces Belfast's emergence as a shipbuilding powerhouse in the early 19th Century, primarily in the form of the Harland and Wolff shipyard. In 1907 the White Star Line awarded Harland and Wolff a contract to construct 3 superb steam liners that would hit new heights in terms of passenger safety, comfort, style and sheer size. The first 2 to be commissioned were the sister ships Olympic and the Titanic, with the construction of the Titanic beginning in March of 1909.
    Descendants of shipworkers and historians explore the role the building of the massive Titanic played in the lives of the inhabitants of Belfast. Sadly, the Titanic's ending is well known and tragic - on her first voyage, shortly before midnight on the night of April 14th, 1912 the ship struck an iceberg in the freezing North Atlantic.
    In less than 3 hours she sank to the ocean floor, with the loss of over 1500 lives. 36 of those lost lives belonged to men and women of Belfast. Seldom-seen images of Titanic during her construction and preparation for launch are included in this new look at the doomed ship. Interviews were filmed at the Ulster Folk and Transport Museum. The film also looks at the emerging Titanic museum in Belfast.

    Titanic with Len Goodman In this program, Len Goodman, a judge on "Dancing with the Stars," discovers how the impact of the Titanic disaster is still felt a century after the ship sank. Goodman has his own connection to the ship. Before he was a dancer, he was a welder for Harland and Woolf. This was company that, from 1909 to 1912, built the Titanic in Belfast. Goodman worked for the same company 50 years later, at their yard in East London. To mark the centenary of the Titanic tragedy in 2012, Goodman explores the ship's 100-year legacy. He learns how for victims' families and for the survivors themselves, the sinking was just the beginning of the story. Generations later, those stories are still unfolding as Goodman meets the modern-day descendants to learn how, 100 years after it sank, the Titanic's legacy lives on. duration 56:46   STEREO TVPG
