    Antiques Roadshow [#1117] Milwaukee, Wi - Part 1 AR kicks off its visit to Milwaukee, Wisconsin, at the city's traditional German Fest, where host Mark L. Walberg and appraiser Stuart Whitehurst soak up the atmosphere and talk about collectible German beer steins. At the Midwest Airlines Center, collectors are thirsty for information about such treasures as a 1952 Fender Esquire guitar, prized by country and western musicians; a late 19th-century child's sled in the shape of a swan, considered a rare piece of American folk sculpture; and a cliffhanger: an 18th-century desk and bookcase passed down to the owner from his great-grandfather, a former governor of Connecticut, that could be worth as much as $250, 000 - or $20,000, if the two pieces are determined to be "married." duration 56:46   STEREO TVG

    Independent Lens [#1402] As Goes Janesville From the day the GM factory closes through a showdown with national resonance at the state capitol, "As Goes Janesville" traces the impact of the economic crisis on the people of Janesville, Wisconsin.

The story begins shortly after the factory closed in 2008 and continues through a standoff between the newly-elected governor and 14 Democratic state senators, one of whom is a main character in the film. duration 56:46   STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: none)

    Rudy Maxa's World [#102] Rajasthan Jaipur, the "Pink City," provided the Mughal Empire with its generals even as its civilians were building some of the world's great temples and palaces. Here travelers find the Hawa Mahal, the Hall of Winds, built with red and pink sandstone. One of Rajasthan's other great cities, Jodhpur, is less know to the world, even though it loaned its name to a style of riding breeches. This episode takes viewers into the royal rooms behind the sandstone walls of the Mehrangarh Fort, perched high above the city. And in the back streets of Jodhpur, cameras find the enormous furniture industry that collects and refurbishes heirloom furniture that make their way to stores around the world. In the dusty countryside outside of Jodhpur, villagers who have never have seen a Westerner invite Rudy Maxa into their modest homes, and the maharajah of Jodhpur explains why his palace is now a hotel. duration 26:46   STEREO TVG

    Priscilla's Yoga Stretches [#13] 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

    Frontline [#3015] Fast Times at West Philly High Students and teachers from West Philadelphia High School, a public high school serving one of the most disadvantaged neighborhoods in Philadelphia, defy expectations as they design and build two super-hybrid cars for international competition and compete for the chance to be part of a technological revolution. In summer 2010, the high school's EVX Team raced against mega-sized auto manufacturers, multimillion-dollar start-ups and university teams from around the world in the Progressive Insurance Automotive X PRIZE competition. The challenge: build an affordable, 100 miles-per-gallon car. The prize: $10 million dollars.
    Frontline explores the viability of these cars, the potential that exists within our young people and the prospects of effective innovation in public education. Also in this hour, a growing body of evidence suggests that the make-or-break moment for high school dropouts may actually be in middle school. And yet middle schools, with their vulnerable population, have long been overlooked. Now a group of dedicated educators are thrusting middle schools onto center stage. They want to use data to find the answer to the middle school malaise. What's more, they insist this data already exists, has enormous power to help repair a broken school system and to predict and prevent dropouts before they happen.
