    Globe Trekker [#1103] Puerto Rico Zay visits San Juan, the El Yunque National Forest, the Camuy River Caves National Park and the coffee-producing central highlands.

    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.

    Red Tail On August 19, 2005 Roy Koch, along with 4,400 airline mechanics, custodians, and cleaners, went on strike against Northwest Airlines, the fourth largest airline in the world. Northwest, otherwise known as "The Red Tail" by its employees, wanted to lay off 53% of their union and outsource their jobs. What followed was a 444-day strike that would end with 4,000 union members out of work, including Roy. Instead of being left in the wake of this battle, Roy and his daughter Melissa (co-director of The Red Tail with Dawn Mikkelson) set on a journey to meet the worker to whom Roy's job was outsourced in China. The journey provides a renewed sense of purpose for Roy, and while Melissa wants to get answers to his plight, her determination as a filmmaker is always tempered by her love as a daughter. The film interweaves Roy and Melissa's search for connection in China with the premeditated downfall of Northwest Airlines. This downfall serves a vibrant example of the dangers of our current economic system, and casts a spotlight on the future of the working class.

    Locked Out In the wind-swept sands of California's Mojave Desert sits a small town called Boron, population 2000. It is home to one of the largest borates mines in the world. The mine is owned by Rio Tinto, a British-American multinational company, whose net earnings in 2009 were nearly $5 billion dollars. This company has faced lawsuits by communities around the world over distribution of their way of life and pollution of their environment. In the fall of 2009, when the ILWU Local 30 miners' contract expired, Rio Tinto decided to drastically cut the miners' pay and benefits. But the workers rejected this and the company retaliated by locking out the workers on January 31, 2010. For 107 days the miners and their families stood up to Rio Tinto. This is their story duration 58:30   STEREO TVG
