    Jesse Owens: American Experience On April 2, 1936, when the 22-year-old son of a sharecropper entered the Olympic Stadium in Berlin, he was, he later remembered, barely able to control his anger. "I was angry because of the insults that Hitler and the other German leaders had hurled at me and my Negro teammates on the Olympic squad." The young athlete would channel his raw emotions into some of the most remarkable achievements in the history of athletics, winning four gold medals. To tell the story of Owens' remarkable victories in the face of Nazi racism, this film begins in the poor Cleveland neighborhood where the young athlete grew up; details his early career; describes Adolf Hitler's outsized ambitions for the 1936 Olympics; explores the movement in Western democracies to boycott the event; and explains the pressures on Owens to attend. The film also reveals the unlikely relationship Owens struck up at the games with his German rival Carl "Luz" Long and shows that, in the end, despite his success in Germany, Owens struggled to find a place for himself in a United States that was still wrestling to overcome its own deeply entrenched racism. duration 56:11   STEREO TVPG-L (Secondary audio: DVI)
  • 2:00 am
    Secrets of the Dead [#801Z] Doping for Gold In the 1970s, female East German athletes came from nowhere to dominate international sport. But behind their success lay a secret, state-sponsored doping program that distributed untested steroids and male hormones to athletes as young as age 12. Many of these girls had no knowledge that they were being doped, and now, as grown women (and men), their broken bodies and damaged psyches bear witness to the cruelty of a government that pursued international glory and gold at the expense of its most acclaimed citizens. The program digs deep into the secretive, Cold War world of East German athletes, examining what drugs were used, how they were distributed and what horrific damage they did to many of the athletes who were forced to take them. duration 55:50   STEREO TVPG-S (Secondary audio: DVI)

    Frontline [#3013H] Money. Power and Wall Street, Part 2 The investigation pivots to the inner workings of global high finance, which four years after the crisis exploded remains largely shrouded in secrecy and laden with risk. While popular anger at bankers and the effects of reckless lending and borrowing has spread across much of the globe, effective regulatory reform remains elusive. Looking to Europe as well as America, Frontline interviews leading bankers and officials to probe deeply into the story of the big banks, how they developed, how they crashed and whether many of the practices that contributed to the crisis remain clear and present dangers. Is the global economy again on the brink? duration 1:56:46   STEREO TVPG

    Travelscope [#503H] Switzerland - Celebrating St. Moritz For hundreds of years St. Moritz has been a Swiss resort with the emphasis on "the Ritz" -- a place where the royal, wealthy and famous can recreate in luxury and where the term "Champagne Climate" refers to more than the 300 plus days of sunshine each year. Joseph travels to St. Moritz in the Engadine Region of Switzerland to discover the Romansch soul beneath the five-star hotels, the sparkle of high-end shops and the Rolls-Royce fashions. Along the way he gets above the St. Moritz's surface attractions by trekking into the Rhaetian Alps above 6,000 feet where there's mountain peaks, alpine meadows and "everyone is a friend." duration 26:46   STEREO TVG

    Smart Travels - Europe With Rudy Maxa [#301H] Ireland's West Coast We're blessed with a bit of Irish luck as we take on Ireland's ruggedly beautiful west coast. We start in Galway, Europe's fastest-growing city, shopping for Irish crystal and Celtic jewelry. Then it's a salt-sprayed boat trip to the fabled Aran Islands, where we reach breathless heights at a Stone Age fort and ferret out traditional hand-knit sweaters. Heading south, we pass through the eerie landscape of the Burren, sample the best of Irish folk music, and binge on a medieval banquet at Bunratty Castle. In the lush forests of Killarney, we visit the country manor of Muckross before touring the stunning Dingle Peninsula. Tips on renting bicycles. duration 26:46   STEREO TVG

    Priscilla's Yoga Stretches [#15] The 130 programs are designed to air daily, Monday through Friday. The 15- minute segments are frequently coupled together to fill a 30- minute time slot at the option of local programmers. The first three shows demonstrate and explain three to four new postures or exercises per show. The last two shows serve as review so the viewer has a chance to make certain they followed and understood correctly. In addition, if the viewer missed a show, the Thursday and Friday review days bring them up-to-date. At the onset, the program is strictly teaching the "building blocks" of yoga exercise. As the series progresses, the work becomes more demanding. However, there is an effort to always have a fair balance of some basically simple postures mixed in so that everyone will have an opportunity to participate. duration 13:46

    California's Gold [#904] Guadalupe At first, you can't believe it's real. It must be a movie set of a small, picturesque, agricultural town at the turn of the century.

He also discusses the rich cultural heritage of the area as he talks with descendants of Filipino families who have been living and working in the Santa Maria Valley for generations.
