    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.

    Dangerous Edge: A Life of Graham Greene This film is a portrait of a writer Graham Greene. It explores how Greene's life both inspired great writing and drove him to attempt suicide. He was a British spy, a doubting Catholic, and a manic-depressive who wrote critically-acclaimed, best- selling novels, including The Quiet American, Brighton Rock, The End of the Affair and The Third Man. This documentary weaves Greene's novels and movies into the story of his life: the struggle between good and evil... love and betrayal; it reveals an extraordinary man who traveled the globe to escape the boredom of ordinary existence and became a writer addicted to danger. The film is a journey in search of Greene's most elusive character: himself. Sir Derek Jacobi narrates the film and actor Bill Nighy reads from Greene's writing. Other major participants include novelist and screenwriter Sir John Mortimer, novelist and former SIS agent John Le Carre, award-winning literary critic and novelist David Lodge, acclaimed writer Paul Theroux, former CIA operative and author of The Great Game Frederick Hitz, Greene's wife, Vivien, and his daughter Caroline Bourget. duration 56:46   STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: none)
