    Latino Americans [#105^] Pride and Prejudice/Peril and Promise Prejudice and Pride - Witness the creation of the proud "Chicano" identity as labor leaders organize farm workers in California, and as activists push for better education opportunities for Latinos, the inclusion of Latino studies and empowerment in the political process. Peril and Promise - Examine the past 30 years, as a second wave of Cubans and hundreds of thousands Salvadorans, Nicaraguans and Guatemalans flee to the U.S., creating a debate over undocumented immigrants that leads to calls for tightened borders, English-only laws and efforts to brand the undocumented as a drain on public resources. Simultaneously, the Latino influence is booming in business, sports, media, politics and entertainment. Latino Americans become the largest and youngest growing sector of the American population. duration 1:51:27   STEREO TVPG-VL (Secondary audio: DVI)

    Frontline [#3008H] Inside Japan's Nuclear Meltdown The definitive account of the crisis inside the Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear complex after the devastating earthquake and tsunami that struck Japan on March 11, 2011. With exclusive eye-witness testimony from key figures - including the Japanese Prime Minister and senior executives at the power company Tepco - Frontline tells the story of the workers struggling frantically to reconnect power inside the plant???s pitch-dark and highly radioactive reactor buildings; the nuclear experts and officials in the Prime Minister's office fighting to get information as the crisis spiraled out of control; and the plant manager who disobeyed his executives' orders when he thought it would save the lives of his workers. The investigation profiles the Japanese soldiers and firefighters who were drafted to cool the reactors and were wounded when the reactor housings exploded; and the families living near the nuclear plant, who unknowingly fled in the same direction as the radioactive plume, exposing themselves to dangerously high radiation levels. duration 56:46   STEREO TVRE

    Priscilla's Yoga Stretches [#5] 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

    Nova [#3715H] Secrets of Stonehenge Every year, a million visitors are drawn to the Salisbury Plain, in southern England, to gaze upon a mysterious circle of stones. Stonehenge may be the best-known and most mysterious relic of prehistory. During the 20th century, excavations revealed that the structure was built in stages and that it dates back some 5000 years, to the late Stone Age. The meaning of the monument, however, was anyone's guess - until recently. Now investigations inside and around Stonehenge have kicked off a dramatic new era of discovery and debate. Who built Stonehenge? What was its purpose? How did prehistoric people quarry, transport, sculpt and erect the giant stones? A new generation of researchers is tackling these questions, finding important clues in the landscape surrounding Stonehenge - one of the densest concentrations of prehistoric structures in the world. The story of Stonehenge is being rewritten. duration 56:16   STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: DVI)

    Get Off Your Knees: The John Robinson Story Born a congenital amputee, John Robinson has no hands. His arms stop at his elbows. His lower legs are attached to his hips without knees. He is 3'9'' tall. As a child, John's parents had many worries: Would he be able to go to school? Could he hold a pencil? Could he ever support himself?
    Yet, through his remarkable tenacity, talent and faith, John has succeeded in business and in building a family in a way that few may have expected from the outset. In this documentary, we get to know a man who has made his way in a world not designed for those without the dexterity of typical arms and legs - a man who has gone on to lead what many would consider an ordinary life. Yet this ordinary life is actually extraordinary when one witnesses the determination required for John to do that which others take for granted, from driving a car to playing a round of golf.
    People with disabilities are the nation's most vulnerable demographic, and the obstacles they face in everyday life can seem overwhelming. John's inspirational story teaches those of us with and without disabilities that, with the aid of a strong education and a few caring individuals, we can achieve that which may initially seem impossible.
