    THIS WEEK in Northern California [#2306H] April 20, 2012 Many are convinced that government in California is broken, with political gridlock in Sacramento and ongoing budget problems. Some blame Prop.13, the initiative process, term limits, or the 2/3 majority requirement for raising taxes. Gov. Brown recently urged Sacramento lawmakers to make billions of dollars of cuts and predicted the state's shortfall could exceed the $9 billion estimated by his administration earlier this year.
    We take an in-depth look at potential solutions for what ails the state in Broken California. Guests:
    Susan Kennedy, former Chief of Staff for Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger;
    Don Perata, Former Senate President Pro-Tem;
    Dan Schnur, Professor, University of Southern California;
    and Mark Paul, co-author, "California Crackup".
    Hosted by PBS NewsHour's Spencer Michels. (original broadcast: Nov. 11, 2011)

    Nature [#2911H] River of No Return The Frank Church - River of No Return Wilderness is a protected wilderness area in Idaho and the second largest contiguous area of protected wilderness in the continental United States. There are no roads here, just thick forests, mountains and canyons -- a perfect habitat for wildlife, particularly wolves who have just returned after a 50-year absence -- and a young couple, Isaac and Bjornen Babcock, who chose this wilderness for their year-long honeymoon. But what begins as a romantic adventure becomes a tale of struggle and survival -- both for the newlyweds, and for every life trying to make it in the unforgiving heart of the wilderness. duration 1:11:46   SRND51 TVPG (Secondary audio: DVI)

    Nova [#3911H] Why Ships Sink Are you safe aboard a modern cruise ship? Twenty million passengers embark on cruises each year, vacationing in deluxe "floating cities" that offer everything from swimming pools to shopping malls to ice skating rinks. And the ships just keep getting bigger: The average cruise ship has doubled in size in just the last ten years. Some engineers fear that these towering behemoths are dangerously unstable, and the recent tragedy of the Costa Concordia has raised new questions about their safety. Now, NOVA brings together marine engineering and safety experts to reconstruct the events that led up to famous cruise disasters, including the ill-fated Concordia, the Sea Diamond, and the Oceanos. Are we really safe at sea-or are we on the brink of a 21st century Titanic? duration 56:46   STEREO TVPG

    America Revealed [#102] Nation on the Move America is a nation of vast distances and dense urban clusters, woven together by 200,000 miles of railroads, 5000 airports and four million miles of roads. These massive, complex transportation systems combine to make Americans the most mobile people on earth, but much of this infrastructure, built in the 19th and 20th centuries, strains under the weight of our rapidly growing, constantly moving population. In this episode, host Yul Kwon journeys across the continent by air, road and rail. He ventures behind the scenes with the workers who get us where we need to go; he meets innovators creating ways to propel us farther and faster in years to come; and he uncovers the minor miracles and uphill battles involved in moving over 300 million Americans every day. duration 56:46   STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: none)

    Need To Know [#232H] In partnership with the Investigative Fund of the Nation Institute, NTK investigates whether US border patrol agents have been using excessive force in an effort to curb illegal immigration. 8 people have been killed along the border in the past 2 years.
    1 man died a short time after being beaten and tased, an event recorded by 2 eyewitnesses whose video is the centerpiece of the report. Both eyewitnesses say the man offered little or no resistance. One told NTK that she felt like she watched someone being "murdered," and the San Diego coroner's office classified the death as a "homicide."
    The report raises questions about accountability. Because border patrol agents are part of the Department of Homeland Security, they are not subjected to the same public scrutiny as police officers who use their weapons. It also questions whether, in the rush to secure the border, agents are being adequately trained. And it raises the question: why aren't these cases being prosecuted?

    Moyers & Company [#115H] The Case for Old-School Faith & Politics Two movements once at the vital center of our society, liberal politics and American Christianity have gone astray, says Eric Alterman (from the left) and Ross Douthat (from the right). This week, each meets separately with Bill to discuss the implications of this wayward course on American Democracy.
    First, Eric Alterman describes the grand aspirations, ambitions, and historical ironies that prompted him to write his new book The Cause: The Fight for American Liberalism from Franklin Roosevelt to Barack Obama. He calls on liberals to regain "the fighting spirit" that characterized Franklin Roosevelt's New Deal and to put it in service of new liberal policies for the 2lst century. Liberals, he tells Moyers, have overpromised and underperformed, and it's time once again to make government credible.
    Ross Douthat, the conservative op-ed columnist for The New York Times and author of Bad Religion: How We Became a Nation of Heretics, is just as candid about how traditional and institutional Christianity has declined from a vigorous, mainstream, and bipartisan force to a polarizing, heretical combatant in the culture war. He argues that a revival of true and basic Christian principles can lead to American renewal.
    Also, can you imagine Super Grover followed by a super PAC ad? No? Neither can Bill Moyers. In a new essay at the top of the show, Moyers talks about the recent federal appeals court decision of to allow political and issue advertising on public TV and radio channels. "Just say no," Moyers urges station managers across the country - but they need your help.

    Washington Week [#5143H] * A series of polls released this week paint conflicting pictures of the state of the presidential contest. Some polls show President Obama well ahead of the Republican Party's presumptive nominee while other polls have Mitt Romney holding a slight lead. Six-and-a-half months before the election, what do the polls really reveal about the candidates strengths and weakness and their chances in November? We will get answers and analysis from Jeff Zeleny of The New York Times.
    * Both President Obama and Mitt Romney traveled to the battleground state of Ohio this week to talk about their plans for bolstering the economic recovery. Mitt Romney's plan includes a high-skilled immigration and job training program. President Obama's plan would increase high-skilled visas and create new training partnerships with community colleges for unemployed workers. Jim Tankersley of National Journal will examine the similarities and differences between the two proposals.
    * Political super PACs could shape the 2012 presidential and congressional elections because there are no limits on how much individuals can donate to these independent groups and no restrictions on how the groups spend the money. Jeanne Cummings of Bloomberg News will update us on the first-quarter fundraising by these influential outside interest groups.
    * Michael Duffy of Time Magazine will report on the Washington-based scandals that made headlines this week including misconduct by Secret Service agents accused of hiring prostitutes while on assignment in Columbia last week and the Congressional probe into lavish spending by General Services Administration (GSA) workers.
