Justine Shapiro heads to Thailand in search of the White-Handed Gibbon. Holly Morris, Ian Wright and Megan McCormick get up close and personal with the orangutan in Borneo and Sumatra, the chimpanzee in Tanzania and Zambia and the Mountain Gorilla in the remote mountains of Uganda. Ian glimpses the elusive Golden Bamboo Lemur on Madagascar, Eils Nevitt discovers the Black-Crowned Dwarf Marmoset - at six inches high, the world's second-smallest monkey - in the Amazon jungle and Zay Harding encounters two enormous and extremely rare apes in Africa: the Drill in Cameroon and the Mandrill, known as the world's largest monkey, in Gabon. duration 56:24   STEREO TVRE (Secondary audio: DVI)

    Moyers & Company [#131H] Between Two Worlds: Life on the Border No writer understands the border culture between Mexico and the US more intimately than Luis Alberto Urrea, this week's guest on an encore broadcast. His own life is the stuff of great novels. Son of a Mexican father and Anglo mother, Urrea grew up first in Tijuana and then just across the border in San Diego. Over the years he has produced a series of acclaimed novels, including The Hummingbird's Daughter, The Devil's Highway, and his latest, Queen of America - each a rich and revealing account of the people of the borderlands that join and separate our two nations.
    Earlier this year, a number of books were removed from Tucson, Arizona classrooms when the Tucson school district eliminated a Mexican-American studies program on the accusation it was "divisive." The program included references to Urrea's work. Urrea talks with Bill about that episode as he unfolds the modern reality of life on the border.

Along with the depression, "Herbert Hoover: Landslide" provides detailed discussion of the 1927 Mississippi flood, the 1928 election campaign, monetary and agricultural policies throughout the Hoover presidency, the Bonus March and the 1932 presidential election.

    Home from the War: The Voices of Vietnam "Home from the War: The Voices of Vietnam" chronicles the history of the Vietnam Veteran. This film is not a history of the Vietnam War, but of the men and women who fought a brutal, unpopular war, fulfilling their duty to a country that treated them with disdain and indifference. Veterans speak candidly about Vietnam, coming home and their children who are currently serving in Iraq and Afghanistan. The film features segments on PTSD, The Wall, The Veterans Administration, Vietnam Veterans of America, nurses, Rolling Thunder, Gold Star Mothers, African-American, Hispanic, Hawaiian, Native-American, Asian American and Vietnam Veterans of every background, race, creed and social standing. duration 55:05   STEREO TV14-VD

    Religion & Ethics NewsWeekly [#1550Z] RESPONSE TO SIKH TEMPLE SHOOTING: There's been an outpouring of interfaith sympathy and solidarity since the shooting at a Wisconsin Sikh temple last Sunday which took the lives of 6 worshippers. Guest Host Kim Lawton looks at how Sikhs and other people of faith have been responding to the tragedy. (new segment)
    JEWISH JESUS: Kim Lawton explores several new projects encouraging both Jews and Christians to pay more attention to the Jewishness of Jesus.

    WORLD'S BIGGEST CONGREGATION? Every Sunday, more than 20,000 worshippers attend each of 7 services at the Yoido Full Gospel Church, a Pentecostal church in Seoul, South Korea, with hundreds of thousands of others watching on TV or from satellite branches. As Lucky Severson reports, the church attributes its phenomenal growth to the important positions it has given to women, and to its message that if its members give to God, they'll be rewarded with prosperity.
