    Religion & Ethics NewsWeekly [#1553H] RELIGION AND THE REPUBLICAN CONVENTION - Kim Lawton reports from Tampa on the involvement of faith leaders at the Republican National Convention - their concerns, especially about Mormonism; the issues they are stressing; and the extent to which they are rallying their members in support of the Romney-Ryan ticket.
    MICROLOANS AND MICROGRANTS - The Grameen Bank of Bangladesh became famous for issuing microloans to poor women to enable them to start businesses that allow them to become self-supporting. Now Grameen America's 6 US branches disburse dozens of micro business loans each day to women here. Fred de Sam Lazaro reports on Grameen USA and on a Minnesota organization headed by former Catholic priest Joe Selvaggio that provides microgrants to struggling entrepreneurs.

    Moyers & Company [#134H] The Resurrection of Ralph Reed * While Romney, Ryan, Christie, and Rubio get the lion's share of attention during the Republican Convention this week, 3 one-time college Republicans who are now the party's real power-brokers - Karl Rove, Ralph Reed, and Grover Norquist - are busy doing what they do best: leveraging their political, religious, and financial resources to back pro-corporate, anti-government objectives at the core of the conservative agenda.
    The true surprise at the Tampa convention is Ralph Reed's resurrection. When the former head of the Christian Coalition was discovered to have raked in millions of dollars from the super lobbyist - and eventually convicted felon - Jack Abramoff, Reed wound up in political purgatory. But outraged by the election of Barack Obama, and responding to what he describes as God's call (via Sean Hannity), Reed returned to start the Faith and Freedom Coalition with the aim of toppling Barack Obama from the White House. To succeed, Reed needs to win the allegiance of many of the trusting Christian followers he had duped and double-crossed while working with Abramoff. Can he pull it off? That's the story this week.
    *Later on the show, Bill also talks with Mike Lofgren, a long-time Republican who says the rise of politicized religious fundamentalism transformed his party and created a de facto religious test for the presidency. Lofgren tells the story in his book The Party is Over: How Republicans Went Crazy, Democrats Became Useless, and the Middle Class Got Shafted.

    Washington Week [#5209H] A day after the Republican National Convention wraps in Tampa, Gwen Ifill travels to Charlotte, North Carolina for a special Election 2012 edition of Washington Week.
    All week a parade of past, present and future Republican party leaders stepped up to the podium at the GOP convention in Tampa to lay out the conservative case for why America needs a new direction and why Mitt Romney is the man for the job.
    The former Massachusetts governor accepted the Republican Party's nomination during a primetime speech Thursday night. Romney was expected to dissect President Obama's record and explain how his administration would "turnaround" America. On Wednesday night Romney's running mate Paul Ryan energized the convention hall with a rousing speech where he talked about the Obama administration's policy failings and how Mitt Romney would not duck the tough issues as commander in chief.
    Next week the political attention shifts to Charlotte where Democrats open their own convention. There President Obama will present his case to America about why he and Vice President Joe Biden deserve a second term and why the Romney-Ryan ticket is the wrong choice for America.
    The president spent this week monitoring Hurricane Isaac and the situation in the storm-ravaged Gulf. He also held rallies in 3 battleground states targeting his message to young people and talking about the important choice voters will have to make in November. In 2008 the college vote helped Obama win the White House.
    Joining Gwen Ifill in Charlotte this week:
    Jeff Zeleny of The New York Times;
    Karen Tumulty of The Washington Post;
    John Harwood of CNBC and The New York Times;
    And Alexis Simendinger of Real Clear Politics.

    This American Land [#205] Bison Homecoming, Preserving Tribal Languages, Peregrine Protection, Soaring with Paragliders Bison Homecoming: The buffalo are back! One hundred years after Native American Michael Pablo sent his captive bison herd to Canada to help preserve the dwindling species, dozens of their direct descendants were released into the bison herd on the American Prairie Reserve in northern Montana. The World Wildlife Fund has been collaborating with the American Prairie Reserve to help restore the grasslands habitat for the bison, birds, and other important native species that roamed the region when Lewis and Clark arrived in 1805.
    Preserving Tribal Languages: The passion of tribal elders and 21st century video technology are merging to bring new life to the Ojibwe language. Using "home movies" that depict everyday scenarios, experts at the University of Minnesota-Duluth are helping new generations learn and appreciate the language and culture.
    Peregrine Protection: Peregrine falcons are making a comeback-in some most unusual places. With help from bird lovers in Iowa, this once nearly extinct raptor has a new place to call home-atop an Iowa skyscraper! Once nearly wiped out by DDT, local falconers and the state Department of Natural Resources helped design a nest box that's keeping peregrine parents safe and cozy, and helping provide for a healthy new generation.
    Soaring with Paragliders: Jumping off a cliff has never been so spectacular! Daredevils in Oregon use thermal currents in a sort of "yacht race in the sky." 160 pilots joined the "Rat Race" in the intricate sport of paragliding. Their only source of power is the thermal lift from hot air. Even the crew of "Oregon Field Guide" at Oregon Public Broadcasting got in on the act during this breathtaking event.

Episode I concludes with the dramatic head-to-head rivalry between the Boeing 247 and the Douglas DC-3 for command of the newly born commercial aviation industry. Highlights include:
    * footage of the Wright Brothers' famous 1908 demonstration for the U.S. Army Signal Corps at Fort Myer, Virginia.
    * Newly recovered footage of the Boeing workshops and factories (circa 1917-1918), as they build aircraft for America's effort in World War I.

    Pioneers In Aviation: The Race to the Moon [#102] The War Years Documents the 1930s and 40s, as the clouds of war once again began to gather over Europe. With all of Western Europe a German stronghold by the summer of 1940, and England under attack, President Roosevelt calls upon the captains of his Aviation Industry-declaring that America must become "the Arsenal of Democracy. " Under Donald Douglas's leadership, and Dutch Kindelberger's guidance, the U.S. aviation industry unites to tackle the biggest production job in industrial history. With Boeing, Douglas, and North American Aviation factories working around the clock, they produce some of the most legendary aircraft in American history-giving the Allies air supremacy in both the European and Pacific theaters and, ultimately, victory in World War II. Highlights include:
    * Newly discovered footage of the Second World War's most storied military operation: the 1942 Doolittle/Tokyo Raid, flown by North American Aviation's B-25 "Mitchell bomber.
    * Newly discovered footage of Jimmy Doolittle's triumphant return to North American Aviation to share his victory with Dutch Kindelberger and the North American employees.

    Pioneers In Aviation: The Race to the Moon [#103] The Race to the Moon Documents the era of the 1950s and 1960s, as post-war America finds itself locked in an ideological struggle with the Soviet Union-an adversary whose philosophy promised the destruction of capitalism. In 1957, the Soviet launch of Sputnik suddenly shifted the Cold War battlefield to space and heralded the decade-long Race to the Moon. As did his predecessors, President Kennedy turns to the captains of his Aviation Industry-now in the autumn of their years-with the century's greatest aerospace challenge. Highlights include:
    * Newly discovered footage documenting President Kennedy's 1963 visit to McDonnell Aircraft in St. Louis, in celebration of the Mercury Space Program.
    * Emotionally charged footage of Astronaut John Glenn's triumphant return to McDonnell Aircraft, after orbiting the Earth- to share his achievement with "Mr. Mac" and his employees.
    * Photographs of the unknown 19-year-old Marilyn Monroe, modeling the cabin features of the new Douglas DC-6.
    * Boeing Test Pilot Tex Johnston's legendary barrel-roll of the "Dash-8 0"-prototype of the Boeing 707-over Lake Washington during the 1955 Seattle Gold Cup Races.
