    Live from the Artists Den [#1201H] John Legend John Legend celebrates the release of his new album, DARKNESS AND LIGHT, with an unforgettable performance at Manhattan's historic Riverside Church. From the same pulpit where, fifty years earlier, Martin Luther King, Jr. delivered an electrifying "A Time To Break Silence" speech, Legend presents a magnificent set of brand new songs (many being played for the first time ever onstage) alongside such classics as "All Of Me" and "Glory," offering messages of love and hope in a spectacular setting that has been associated with progressive activism for almost a century. The concert is preceded by a provocative conversation between the ten-time Grammy winner, and the Atlantic magazine's national correspondent and National Book Award winner Ta-Nehisi Coates. duration 56:46   STEREO TVPG

It is not a luxury reserved for a few, but a treasure shared by all. Joseph travels into the Grindelwald Valley to experience the grandeur of Switzerland's most typically-Swiss region - the Jungfrau. Constantly shadowed by the towering heights of the Eiger, Monch and Jungfrau peaks, all above 12, 000 feet, Joseph partakes of Swiss mountain culture at local street fairs and festivals. He gets to take part in a cheese-making demonstration and run with the goats through the streets of Wengen, a car-free mountain town. To get an up-close experience with the peaks he hikes to the Gleckstein, a mountain hut for climbers, and literally tops off his adventure with a train journey to the highest train station in Europe, the Jungfraujoch. duration 26:46   STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: DVI)

    Nova [#4121H] Killer Landslides Just before 11am on March 22, 2014, an ominous rumble startled the residents of the little town of Oso, Washington, about an hour's drive from Seattle. It was the terrifying sound of the United States' deadliest landslide in decades. In less than two minutes, a 250 acre field of debris 20 feet deep slammed into a neighborhood of 35 homes. In the wake of the tragedy, geomorphologists are tracing the geological history of Oso to explain why the site was so unstable. But Oso isn't alone. Globally, landslides and other ground failures cost more lives and money each year than all other natural disasters combined. The threat of bigger, more frequent landslides is growing as climate change increases intense precipitation events. As Nova follows scientists surveying landslide danger zones, discover how and why landslides happen and how new laser monitoring technologies may help predict landslides before disaster strikes. duration 56:46   STEREO TVPG

    African Americans: Many Rivers to Cross [#105H] Rise! (1940-1968) Rise! examines the long road to civil rights, when the deep contradictions in American society finally became unsustainable. Beginning in World War II, African Americans who helped fight fascism abroad came home to face the same old racial violence. But this time, mass media-from print to radio and TV-broadcast that injustice to the world, planting seeds of resistance. And the success of black entrepreneurs and entertainers fueled African American hopes and dreams. In December 1955, Rosa Parks refused to give up her seat to a white man on a city bus in Montgomery, Alabama, heralding the dawn of a new movement of quiet resistance, with the Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. as its public face. Before long, masses of African Americans practiced this nonviolent approach at great personal risk to integrate public schools, lunch counters and more. As the civil rights movement scored one historic victory after another, non-violence was still all too often met with violence-until finally, enough was enough. By 1968, Dr. King, the apostle of non-violence, would be assassinated, unleashing a new call for "Black Power" across the country. duration 56:16   STEREO TVPG-V (Secondary audio: DVI)

    African Americans: Many Rivers to Cross [#106H] A More Perfect Union (1968-2013) After 1968, African Americans set out to build a bright new future on the foundation of the civil rights movement's victories, but a growing class disparity threatened to split the black community in two. As hundreds of African Americans won political office across the country and the black middle class made unprecedented progress, larger economic and political forces isolated the black urban poor in the inner cities, vulnerable to new social ills and an epidemic of incarceration. Yet African Americans of all backgrounds came together to support Illinois Senator Barack Obama in his historic campaign for the presidency of the United States. When he won in 2008, many hoped that America had finally transcended race and racism. By the time of his second victory, it was clear that many issues, including true racial equality, remain to be resolved. Now we ask: How will African Americans help redefine the United States in the years to come? duration 56:16   STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: DVI)

    Slovakia: Treasures in the Heart of Europe A country of lush forests and mountains surrounded by hidden hills, Slovakia is a land rich with historical and cultural treasures. Centrally located in Europe, Slovakia was obscured for centuries within the Austro-Hungarian Empire and later by the establishment of Czechoslovakia, and has remained relatively unknown to much of the world.
    In this program, host Pat Uskert and Slovak guide Mila Kissova explore the country's history, culture and breathtaking landscapes, and spotlight the many castles and medieval towns - from the capital city of Bratislava, located on the Danube, to the rugged peaks of the High Tatra Mountains. The travel documentary features modern and ancient castles, historic cathedrals, a visit to the Andy Warhol Museum, music and dance festivals, traditional villages, hikes in national parks, and treks in the Tatra Mountains. For both travelers and history lovers, it promises an exciting journey into lands seldom traveled.
