    Gordon Getty: There Will Be Music GORDON GETTY: THERE WILL BE MUSIC profiles a man born into extraordinary wealth who chose to concentrate largely on music rather than on the family business. Gordon Getty's father, J. Paul Getty, was at the time of his death in 1976, the richest man in the world. But as the progeny of his father's fourth marriage, Gordon also inherited a family history that included scandal and tragedy. However, Gordon has more than survived and he has earned, on his own, membership in the highest echelons of the worlds of the arts and ideas. He is the author of complex, groundbreaking economic theories, and is an influential philanthropist and patron of the arts. It is music, however, that is Getty's chief pursuit. His compositions reflect a rich imagination and mastery of technique, as well as his courage to go against the grain of modernism. Although he thinks that he would have become a composer no matter what, Gordon credits his wealth for giving him the unrestricted liberty to compose. Yet, he credits his passion for music for lifting the curse of his family's inherited wealth and for letting him avoid all the trappings of money. Ten years in the making, the documentary offers a glimpse into the life of this complex, creative, controversial octogenarian at home and around the globe (Napa, San Francisco, Mexico, Germany, Russia and Portugal), during an intensely productive period. GORDON GETTY: THERE WILL BE MUSIC delivers an intimate portrait of the composer and musician during the creation, rehearsals, recordings and performances, of two full-length operas, including Usher House, based on Edgar Allan Poe's The Fall of the House of Usher, cantata, and numerous solo and chamber works. duration 56:46   STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: none)

    KQED NEWSROOM [#446H] In the wake of the Trump administration's Tuesday announcement that it is ending the Obama-era DACA program, we look at several perspectives on immigration policy. Dubbed DACA for "Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals," the program allowed young, undocumented immigrants brought to the U.S. illegally as children to obtain temporary work visas and avoid deportation.
    *Congressman Jeff Denham Central Valley Rep. Jeff Denham (R-Turlock) supports the DACA program, but says Congress should craft a more permanent legislative solution.
    *California Attorney General Xavier Becerra California Attorney General Xavier Becerra plans to sue the Trump administration for its decision to rescind DACA, which he says will cost California's economy a billion dollars and hurt roughly 200,000 DACA beneficiaries living in the state.
    * 'Dreamer' Robert Nu?ez Like many DACA beneficiaries known as "Dreamers," 23-year-old Robert Nu?ez has been able to live, study and work in the U.S. without fear of deportation. Nu?ez came to the U.S. as a toddler from Mexico and just recently graduated from UC Berkeley with hopes of working as an immigration attorney.
    *The name Cesar Chavez is synonymous with farm worker rights, but Dolores Huerta, the woman who co-founded the United Farm Workers union with Chavez, is much less known. The new documentary, Dolores, aims to change that by highlighting the critical role Huerta played, and continues to play, as an activist and civil rights leader.

    *Dolores Huerta, President, Dolores Huerta Foundation
    *Peter Bratt, Director, Dolore
