    IS YOUR COUCH TOXIC? INTERVIEW WITH ARLENE BLUM - They're in just about all our homes - couches and chairs containing polyurethane foam which contain large quantities of chemical flame retardants, mandated by California law. But flame retardants have been linked to numerous health problems, including cancer, learning problems and infertility, and state lawmakers are now considering whether to overhaul the law. The debate was started by Berkeley scientist Arlene Blum, who pioneered research showing the dangers of Chlorinated Tris in children's pajamas. She succeeded in getting it removed from clothing, in 1977. Now, decades later, she's back on the front lines battling flame retardants, this time, in our furniture.

    New Tricks [#402] God's Waiting Room Sandra Pullman's private and professional worlds clash when her mother Grace suffers a fall and needs care. Mother and daughter do not share a close relationship, so when Grace temporarily moves in with Sandra, sparks fly. However, the two do agree that Grace can no longer live on her own and they set about finding a suitable nursing home for her. On the surface, Whitemead seems perfect, until one of the residents, Leonard, confides that the death of another elderly resident, his fiancee Maggie Newley, a year previously, was covered up and passed off as suicide. Despite hearing this and to Sandra's dismay, Grace sets her heart on moving into Whitemead's. Since the alleged murder doesn't fall under her department's remit, but wanting to act in the best interests of her mother, Pullman is forced to turn a blind eye to her team's suggestion of an unofficial undercover investigation. Jack Halford reluctantly agrees to play the role of elderly relative and manages to secure a place for himself at the home. Like a thorn in Halford's side, Gerry Standing takes great delight in playing the concerned son visiting his old dad and in an ironic twist, neurotic Brian Lane, gets to play his doctor. But it soon becomes clear that the calm facade of the home belies jealousies and petty crimes. With Maggie's family and Leonard insisting the she would not have taken her own life, the team discovers a link to her prescribed medication and that she had a love rival at the home, Pru Saunders. But would a dotty old woman really commit murder for love? duration 50:04   STEREO

    Moyers & Company [#212H] And Justice for Some Fifty years ago, the Supreme Court's landmark decision in the case of Gideon v. Wainwright established the constitutional right of criminal defendants to legal representation, even if they can't afford it. The Court ruled there shouldn't be one kind of justice for the rich and another for the poor, but the scales of the American legal system still tilt heavily in favor of the white and wealthy. This week, attorney and legal scholar Bryan Stevenson exposes the system's failures, and ongoing struggles at the crossroads of race, class and justice.
    Stevenson's Alabama-based Equal Justice Initiative has reversed the death sentences of more than 75 inmates. But right now, there are more than 3100 inmates on death row, and more than 60% are members of racial or ethnic minorities. Over time, Supreme Court Justices have fine-tuned the circumstances under which the death penalty may still apply, but no set of laws or jurisprudence can undo wrongful executions - or, it seems, completely prevent them. According to journalists Martin Clancy and Tim O'Brien, authors of Murder at the Supreme Court, in recent years at least 18 inmates were released from death row because DNA evidence proved their innocence. These cases are among more than 140 death penalty exonerations over the last three decades.
    The broadcast closes with a Bill Moyers Essay on the hypocrisy of "justice for all" in a society where billions are squandered for a war born in fraud while the poor are pushed aside.
