    Moyers & Company [#138H] United States of ALEC * This week, an unprecedented in-depth report on the most influential corporate-funded political force most of us have never heard of - ALEC, the American Legislative Exchange Council. A national consortium of state politicians and powerful corporations, ALEC presents itself as a "nonpartisan public-private partnership". But behind that mantra lies a vast network of corporate lobbying and political action aimed to increase corporate profits at public expense. Using interviews, documents, and personal accounts, the episode explores ALEC's self-serving machine at work, acting in a way one Wisconsin politician describes as "a corporate dating service for lonely legislators and corporate special interests."
    In state houses around the country, hundreds of pieces of boilerplate ALEC legislation are proposed or enacted that would, among other things, dilute collective bargaining rights, make it harder for some Americans to vote, and limit corporate liability for harm caused to consumers - each accomplished without the public ever knowing who's behind it. "All of us here are very familiar with ALEC and the influence that ALEC has with many of the [legislative] members," said Arizona State Senator Steve Farley. "Corporations have the right to present their arguments, but they don't have the right to do it secretly."
    "United States of ALEC" is a collaboration between Okapi Productions (the filmmakers Tom Casciato and Kathleen Hughes) and the Schumann Media Center, headed by Bill Moyers, which supports independent journalism and public watchdogs such as the Center for Media and Democracy, whose investigators are featured in the report.
    * Also appearing on the broadcast is Kathleen Hall Jamieson, the director of the University of Pennsylvania's Annenberg Public Policy Center and founder of FactCheck.org, who talks about deception and truth in the 2012 campaign.

For the first time in human history, less than 2% of the population can feed the other 98%. How does this all work? Who are the men and women who keep us fed 365 days a year?

    America Revealed [#102] Nation on the Move America is a nation of vast distances and dense urban clusters, woven together by 200,000 miles of railroads, 5000 airports and four million miles of roads. These massive, complex transportation systems combine to make Americans the most mobile people on earth, but much of this infrastructure, built in the 19th and 20th centuries, strains under the weight of our rapidly growing, constantly moving population. In this episode, host Yul Kwon journeys across the continent by air, road and rail. He ventures behind the scenes with the workers who get us where we need to go; he meets innovators creating ways to propel us farther and faster in years to come; and he uncovers the minor miracles and uphill battles involved in moving over 300 million Americans every day. duration 56:46   STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: none)

    Civilian Conservation Corps: American Experience [#2201H] In March 1933, within weeks of his inauguration, President Franklin Roosevelt sent legislation to Congress aimed at providing relief for the 1 out of every 4 American workers who were unemployed. He proposed the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) to provide jobs in natural resource conservation. Over the next decade, the CCC put more than three million young men to work in the nation's forests and parks, planting trees, building flood barriers, fighting fires, and maintaining roads and trails. This film tells the story of one of the boldest and most popular New Deal experiments, positioning it as a pivotal moment in the emergence of modern environmentalism and federal unemployment relief. duration 55:46   STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: DVI)

    Infinity Hall Live [#106H] Open Wings Broken Strings The Open Wings Broken Strings tour pulls into Infinity Hall with Ed Kowalczyk, Emerson Hart and Leigh Nash, all performing individual acoustic sets. Ed Kowalczyk, most famous as the singer/songwriter of the multi-million album-selling alternative rock band Live, performs an unplugged set of his former group's hit singles such as "I Alone" as well as his newer solo work. He is also responsible for creating the Open Wings Broken Strings Tour. Kowalczyk explained the origin of the tour's name. "At the height of songwriting epiphanies, I seem to always break strings 'cause you get so excited. Bang! The string breaks. But there's this moment where you're really soaring. Open Wings Broken Strings just kind of came out of that." Joining Kowalczyk on the tour is lead singer/songwriter Emerson Hart of another alternative rock band, Tonic. Tonic's first album, Lemon Parade, went multi-platinum with featured hits "Open Your Eyes" and "If You Could Only See," which became radio's most played songs in 1997. In 2007, Emerson went solo and signed with EMI/Manhattan Records, continuing his successful career. His solo acoustic set brings a new intimacy to these well-known songs. Another featured artist of Open Wings Broken Strings is Leigh Nash, lead singer of Sixpence None the Richer. With hit singles like "Kiss Me," "There She Goes," and "Breathe Your Name," Sixpence None the Richer successfully reached platinum status over the past decade, along with picking up a Grammy nomination and several Dove Awards. Now Nash is offering a new perspective on the group's biggest hits as she tours with Open Wings Broken Strings. While each artist performs their own individual acoustic sets, the show features a final performance with all three artists on stage together for a cover of The Band's classic "The Weight." Infinity Hall Live allows for a wonderful experience and by hearing the instruments "stripped down, intimate and acoustic, " as Kowalczyk explains it, "you'll hear the strings on the guitar vibrate and buzz." duration 57:10   STEREO TVPG
