    Mexico -- One Plate at a Time with Rick Bayless [#703H] Guac on the Wild Side Everyone loves guacamole. And for every person you ask, there's a secret recipe and a preferred style. In the kitchen of his Frontera Grill, Rick prepares the restaurant's classic Mexican version, an institution since the day the place opened. But is it a classic? To answer that question, Rick goes to Mexico City, where he explains that guacamole just means "avocado sauce," and shows us a series of equally time-honored interpretations of the term. There's a smooth and creamy taco condiment at a busy taqueria and, at the other end of the sauce spectrum, a chunky guacamole made in, of all things, a meat grinder, at a market stall that sells its perfect complement: succulent, crispy pork carnitas. And speaking of texture, Rick takes us to a cool, rustic-chic restaurant near Coyoacan square for a traditional Oaxacan guacamole that gets a bit of extra protein and crunch from a surprising garnish: chile-lime toasted grasshoppers. Back in Chicago, he gives us a quick introduction to avocado types and tips at his local Mexican grocery, and then heads home with a bagful and a very cool party: a Luxury Guacamole Bar with all kinds of toppings and nibbles to make a light meal. The centerpiece is his Roasted Garlic Guacamole, and he rounds out the spread with a refreshing Crab Salpicon, a Salpicon of Roasted Poblanos and Smoked Salmon, a tangy Orange-Tomatillo Salsa that balances the richness of the guacamole, and an array of crunchy toppings from crispy bacon bits to toasted pumpkin seeds. It all comes together at an outdoor party that raises the "bar" on guacamole in a whole new way. duration 26:46   STEREO TVG

    Nature [#2703H] Black Mamba The black mamba is one of Africa's most dangerous and feared snakes, known for being very aggressive when disturbed. Rearing up with its head four feet above the ground, it strikes with deadly precision, delivering venom that is packed with three different kinds of toxins and is ten times more deadly than needed to kill an adult human. Without treatment the mortality rate is 100%, the highest among all venomous snakes in the world. Until now, little has been known about the black mamba's natural behavior in the wild because in Africa most people kill a black mamba on sight and feel lucky to have done so. But in the tiny country of Swaziland in southern Africa, a team of herpetologists has an entirely different "take" on these creatures and hopes their six-week study will change public perception of what they feel is the world's most misunderstood snake. duration 55:16   SRND51 TVPG (Secondary audio: DVI)

    Defiant Requiem: Voices of Resistance This documentary tells the story of the concentration camp "Terezin" in the Czech Republic, where a large number of Jewish artists, musicians, poets and writers were incarcerated under the Nazis. In the face of horrific living conditions, starvation, and the threat of deportation to Auschwitz, the inmates of Terezin stood up to their Nazi oppressors and did the unthinkable: they fought back with art and music. Led by a determined conductor named Raphael Schachter, the Jews of Terezin re-imagined a Catholic liturgical work - Verdi's "Requiem" - as a condemnation of the Nazis, rehearsing tirelessly night after night, learning the Latin by rote. Ultimately, they would perform in front of members of the Red Cross and the architect of the concentration camp system, Adolf Eichmann, singing what they could not say. Six decades later, conductor Murry Sidlin and a new choir bring Verdi's Requiem to Terezin once again, and the story of Raphael Schachter back to life. duration 1:26:46   SRND51 TVPG

    Finding Kalman In this moving documentary a charismatic Holocaust survivor inspires her family to connect to relatives they never met. Focusing on her brother, Kalman, Anna recounts tales of a mischievous boy who tried to escape the Warsaw ghetto with her. Her daughter, an artist, devours the stories and paints his portrait over and over again. As Kalman's face emerges on canvas, the film moves from archival Warsaw ghetto footage to summers in a Catskills bungalow colony-from vibrant family life before World War II to now. Four generations grapple differently with their shared history. Roz, the artist felt her mother's pain, understanding it in stages. Maya, an Israeli granddaughter expresses her passion playing the viola. Performing in an Arab-Israeli youth orchestra, she questions why there has to be war when she sees the ease of making music with someone defined as her enemy. Great-grandson Roy wonders with concern how his generation will understand the Holocaust when it seems like just another story. As the loving family that grew from one survivor celebrates together, the film shows how four generations find light even in the darkest of places-with a resiliency that provides hope for the future. duration 28:00   STEREO TVG

    Moyers & Company [#213H] MLK's Dream of Economic Justice * Martin Luther King, Jr., who died 45 years ago this month, had long known that racial equality was inextricably linked to economic equity - fairness for all, including working people and the poor. In the last year of his life, as he moved toward Memphis and assassination, Dr. King announced the Poor People's Campaign to demand an "Economic Bill of Rights" for all Americans, regardless of color. But nearly a half-century later, that dream is still a dream deferred. This week, Pulitzer Prize-winning historian Taylor Branch and author and theologian James Cone join Bill to discuss Dr. King's vision of economic justice, and why so little has changed for America's most oppressed.
    * Also on the show, poet Kyle Dargan, whose poetry provides a window into the humanity that Branch & Cone say is essential to get people working towards justice, visits Bill to talk about and read from his work.
