    POV [#2506H] Up Heartbreak Hill Thomas and Tamara are track stars at their rural New Mexico high school. Like many teenagers, they are torn between the lure of brighter futures elsewhere and the ties that bind them to home. For these teens, however, home is an impoverished town on the Navajo reservation, and leaving means separating from family, tradition and the land that has been theirs for generations. Erica Scharf's "Up Heartbreak Hill" is a look at a new generation of Americans struggling to be both Native and modern. duration 56:46   STEREO TVPG
  • 8:00 am
    Adventists This program explores the realities, and some of the ironies, of one of the few American-born religions: Seventh-day Adventism. Historical reenactments offer a glimpse into the church's beginnings, including its defining moment: the mid-19th century event known as the Great Disappointment. Several decades later, Dr. John Harvey Kellogg built a breakfast food empire and pioneered a new kind of healthcare facility based on Adventist principles of a healthy lifestyle: a plant-based diet; regular exercise; the avoidance of alcohol, tobacco or illegal drugs, and a holistic focus on education and community life. duration 56:46   STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: DVI)
