    Moyers & Company [#114H] An Optimist for Our Times Angela Blackwell has spent her adult life advocating practical ways to fulfill America's promise of "life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness" for all. Now, with our middle class struggling, poverty rising, and inequality growing, the founder and chief executive officer of PolicyLink, an influential research center, finds reasons for hope in the face of these hard realities.
    This week Bill Moyers and Blackwell discuss what fuels her optimism. "I'm not discouraged, and I wouldn't even dream of giving up, because we're at a moment right now where I think we have more possibility than I've seen in my adult lifetime," Blackwell tells Moyers. "Part of what I've been feeling is that all the issues are finally on the table. So many people who are being left behind are now in places where they have voice, and influence, and they're forcing their way into the conversation."
    "America doesn't want to talk about race," she states, but says the future "is a five-year-old Latina girl. It is a seven-year-old black boy. What happens to them will determine what America looks like, and so this country, as a democracy, really cannot expect to continue to be proud on the world stage, competitive in the global economy, or having a democracy it can put forward as working in a multi-racial society if we don't invest in the people who are the future."

    Food Forward [#101H] Urban Agriculture Across America From the rooftop farms of New York City to the food deserts of Detroit, join us as Food Forward explores the explosion of urban agriculture across America. Meet food rebel John Mooney, whose space-age hydroponic farm on top of a historic building in the West Village of Manhattan is a window into the future of rooftop farming. In Milwaukee, meet the biggest name in urban agriculture, Will Allen, who inspires a new generation of aquaponic innovators. We then learn of one woman's transition from hanging out to harvesting food on the streets of West Oakland.
    Finally, we finish in Detroit with Travis Roberts, an eighteen-year-old who grew up watching the city struggle with increasing urban blight. In trouble and more than 100 pounds overweight, he discovered the city's urban agriculture movement and found a new purpose in life through urban chicken farming. Travis is joined by a cast of powerful characters in Detroit that are rebuilding their city, block by block. Food Forward opens the door into a new world of possibility, where pioneers and visionaries are creating viable alternatives to food systems.

    New Environmentalists: From Kenya to the Arctic Circle [#2011] The latest installment of the Emmy award winning series featuring portraits of six passionate and dedicated activists.

The New Environmentalists share a common goal, safeguarding the Earth's natural resources from exploitation and pollution, while fighting for environmental justice in their communities. duration 26:46   STEREO TVG

    Truly CA: Our State, Our Stories [#402] Monumental From the moment David Brower first witnessed the extraordinary beauty of the Yosemite Valley, his life was tied to the fight to preserve the American wilds for future generations. His fiery dedication and skillful activism transformed the Sierra Club, bringing the environmental movement into the public consciousness. Monumental re-visits Brower's unrelenting campaigns to protect and establish some of our most treasured national parks and monuments. At the center of the film are the themes that absorbed Brower throughout his life and work with the Sierra Club: the spiritual connection between humans and the great outdoors, and the moral obligation to preserve what is left of the world's natural wonders from the encroachment of progress. Weaving Brower's vivid 16-mm archival wilderness footage and interviews with leading conservationists, historians, politicians, and Brower's family, Monumental is an inspiring portrait of a true American legend. By Kelly Duane. duration 58:04   STEREO TVG

    • KQED Plus OTA ? Optimistically planned maintenance: Fri 12/05 mid-morning

      (DT54.1 thru 54.5) Assuming that the weather and road conditions permit, we plan to do a bit of maintenance on our KQEH transmitter the morning of Friday 12/05… hopefully 10am-11am-ish, but could be a bit later. Most of the work should not affect the outgoing signal, but there will need to be a cable swap […]

    • Mon 11/03/14: Work on KQED Plus tower (DT54)

      Another station needs to do maintenance on its equipment on the tower on Monument Peak, requiring that we switch our DT54 Over the Air signal from the main antenna to the auxiliary when the work starts, then back to the main antenna at the conclusion. These switches should cause momentary outages only, and most receivers […]
