  • 12:00 am
    Globe Trekker [#1120] Papua New Guinea The trekkers explore New Britain Island, the largest in the Bismarck Archipelago of Papua New Guinea. Inhabited by the indigenous Papuans and the Austronesians, the island was captured by the Japanese during World War II. Today the island's traditional cultures are diverse and complex but there are several ancient traditions which remain active today, especially the Dukduk Secret Society. Next, we visit the township of Rabaul, once the provincial capital until it was destroyed in 1994 by a massive volcanic eruption. Rabaul is still a superb location for scuba diving, snorkeling and wreck dives. We travel onwards to the stunningly beautiful island of Bougainville, named after a French navigator, and an excellent location for wreck-diving and sea kayaking. duration 56:31   STEREO TVRE (Secondary audio: DVI)

    Way Bobby Sees It, The A gripping documentary about Bobby McMullen, a competitive mountain biker on a mission to race the most demanding downhill course in the country. Adding to the difficulty: Bobby is blind. duration 56:44   STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: DVI)

    Moyers & Company [#140H] Justice Not Politics * This week, James Balog, one of the world's premier cinema-photographers, explains how "the earth is having a fever." At tremendous risk to his own safety, Balog has been documenting the erosion of glaciers in Switzerland, Greenland, Iceland, and Alaska. He joins Bill to share his photos and discoveries, describing his process and transformation from climate change skeptic to true believer. Balog's soon-to-be-released film, Chasing Ice, is a breathtaking account of climate change in action.
    * Afterward, Bill explores a judicial system under partisan attack. 38 states now elect their high court judges. Over the last decade, $200 million - much of it secret and tied to partisan agendas - has been pouring into these judicial campaigns. In Florida, Pennsylvania, and Iowa, for example, justices are being targeted by radical groups that abhor judicial independence and want the courts to reflect their own political biases.
    In Iowa, a state whose judicial system has been praised for its fairness and impartiality, the political and religious Right ousted 3 justices in 2010 over marriage equality, and is now trying to take down a fourth over the same issue. But this time a bipartisan coalition called Justice Not Politics is fighting back. Its co-founders - Democrat Sally Pederson and Republican Joy Corning, each of whom served Iowa for 8 years as lieutenant governor - talk with Bill about what's at stake when justices are at the mercy of partisan passions and money in politics.

    Body and Soul: Diana and Kathy When they met 37 years ago, Diana and Kathy faced early death or a restricted life in a nursing home. Instead, they slipped out of the "system," became advocates for all people with disabilities and began a grand experiment in living meaningful, independent lives. This observational documentary explores the remarkable bond that has made that possible. duration 56:46   STEREO TVPG

    Independent Lens [#1304H] Deaf Jam National poetry slams for youth have been gaining momentum, but few, if any, deaf teens have ever been included in these contests. In this documentary, a group of New York City deaf teens reveal their passions, frustrations and senses of humor as they discover American Sign Language poetry - eventually stepping into the world of the youth poetry slams with their hearing peers. duration 56:46   STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: DVI)

    Independent Lens [#1303H] Lives Worth Living Fred Fay's life proves that one man can change the world, even though he has to lie flat on his back just to stay alive. This documentary looks at Fay's struggle to survive after a spinal cord injury and the small group of dedicated activists who formed the Disability Rights Movement to drive the nation towards equal rights. duration 56:46   STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: DVI)

    Religion & Ethics NewsWeekly [#1606H] NONE OF THE ABOVE - Part 1 of a 3-part series on the fast-growing number of Americans - now 20% of US adults - who have no affiliation with any religious organization. Host Bob Abernethy reports the results of a joint Pew Forum/RENW survey, released this week, on the characteristics of the unaffiliated, especially the one-third of young people 18 to 29 who describe themselves as atheists, agnostics or "nothing in particular." Why is this group growing so fast, and what are the implications of this growth for politics and religion? < br />MINNESOTA MARRIAGE AMENDMENT - Minnesotans will vote in the upcoming election on a hotly contested amendment to the state constitution that would define marriage as the union of one man and one woman. As Fred de Sam Lazaro reports, the Minneapolis-St. Paul Catholic archdiocese is appropriating more than $1 million to support the amendment but other religious organizations are working to defeat it. duration 26:46   STEREO TVRE

    Bhutan - Taking The Middle Path to Happiness This program examines Bhutan's policy of "Gross National Happiness," which emphasizes environmental and cultural preservation, economic development through hydroelectric power, and transparent and honest governance. The Himalayan kingdom's commitment to these four pillars, particularly its approaches to "good governance" and sustainable energy practices, set it apart from most of the world. Prime Minister Lynpo Yeshey Zimba and Jigme Drukpa, the Director of the National Academy of Performing Arts, articulate the importance of each pillar. During the film, government officials and locals explain the meaning of "the middle path," a concept rooted in their Buddhism-influenced view of the world. Happiness and enlightenment, they believe, result from neither overindulging in the world's pleasures nor rejecting the world's goodness. duration 56:46   STEREO TVG
