    Globe Trekker [#1126] Eastern Canada The 3000km journey starts on the Avalon Peninsula, in Newfoundland & Labrador, the oldest and most easterly part of North America. Though it was the first province discovered by Europeans, it was the last to join Canada in 1949 - a testimony to its independent spirit. Next, GT travels south west to the maritime provinces of Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island, and New Brunswick, known for their rugged coastlines, natural beauty and delicious fresh fish. GT then heads inland to say bonjour to Quebec's European culture and old-world charm and party at the New France Festival. Last is Ontario, where we experience the dizzying heights of Toronto's mega CN Tower and the thundering magnificence of the Niagara Falls. duration 58:01   STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: DVI)

    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. Along the way he discovers why Puerto Rico is known as the "island of enchantment," boasting sun-kissed beaches, dramatic mountains, a rich colonial history, and great music. duration 56:40   STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: DVI)
  • 2:00 am
    Moyers & Company [#145H] Hurricanes, Capitalism & Democracy * Hurricane Sandy wreaked havoc on the East Coast, but Naomi Klein says that the tragic destruction can also be the catalyst for the transformation of politics and our economy. The author of the international bestseller The Shock Doctrine joins Bill to discuss hurricanes, climate change, and democracy. Klein has been in New York visiting the devastated areas - including those where "Occupy Sandy" volunteers are unfolding new models of relief - as part of her reporting for a new book and film on climate change and the future. "Let's rebuild by actually getting at the root causes. Let's respond by aiming for an economy that responds to the crisis both through inequality and climate change," Klein tells Bill. "You know, dream big."
    * In the same broadcast, former Federal Election Commission Chairman Trevor Potter - the lawyer who advised Stephen Colbert on setting up a super PAC - dissects the spending on the most expensive election in American history. Many voices are claiming "money didn't matter, Citizens United wasn't a factor," but Potter disagrees. "Super PACs just upped the ante," he tells Bill. "If you're a senator and you have just been elected, or heaven forbid you're up in 2 years, you're thinking I don't have time to worry about deficit reduction and the fiscal cliff. I have to raise tens of thousands of dollars every day to have enough money to compete with these new super PACs... And that means I need to be nice to a lot of billionaires who often want something from me in order to find the funding for my campaign."

    POV [#2511H] Sun Kissed When a Navajo couple discovers their children have a disorder that makes exposure to sunlight fatal, they also learn their reservation is a hotbed for this rare genetic disease. Why? "Sun Kissed" follows Dorey and Yolanda Nez as they confront cultural taboos, tribal history and their own unconventional choices to learn the shocking truth: the consequences of the Navajos' Long Walk -- their forced relocation by the U.S. military in 1864 --are far from over. duration 56:46   STEREO TVPG
  • 4:00 am
    Modoc War, The The Modoc War of 1872 was one of the costliest American Indian wars in U.S. history. For seven months, a handful of Modoc Indian warriors and their families held off hundreds of U.S. Army soldiers. The international press took notice and people were enthralled as one of the last real-life Wild West battles unfolded on the American frontier. Again and again, the small band of Indians overcame incredible odds to protect their way of life. "The Modoc War" revisits the battle scenes, and uses rare historical images and original wood cut drawings from the period. Additionally, interviews with Modoc descendants and written first-hand accounts bring the Modoc War to life. duration 56:46   STEREO TVG
  • 5:00 am
    Racing The Rez For the Navajo and Hopi, running is much more than a sport, it is woven into the cultural fabric of their lives. Encouraged by their elders, many Navajos and Hopis begin running at an early age - to greet the morning sun, to prepare for a ceremony or simply to challenge themselves in the vast, southwestern landscape. In the rugged canyon lands of Northern Arizona, Navajo and Hopi cross-country runners from two rival high schools vie for the state championship while striving to find their place among their native people and the larger American culture. Win or lose, what they learn over the course of two racing seasons has a dramatic effect on the rest of their lives.
    Combining interviews with verite-style shooting, this documentary offers a rare view into the surprising complexity and diversity of contemporary reservation life, from the point of view of five teenage boys on the cusp of adulthood. It follows Ryan, Dennis, Billy, Johnny and Joyai from the classrooms to their remote, un-electrified homes, from grueling runs across canyons and mesas to their ultimate day of reckoning - the state meet - and beyond.

    Religion & Ethics NewsWeekly [#1611H] THE SISTINE CHAPEL - After 500 years, the ceiling of the Vatican's Sistine Chapel, which Michelangelo spent four years painting, remains as important a piece of art as has ever been created. As Lucky Severson reports, until then God had not generally been depicted as human, or male, and art historians may still disagree: did God create man in his own image, or was it the other way around?
    LIFE OF PI - Opening nationwide this week, this film adaptation of the best-selling book explores the phenomenon of being open to faith, as experienced by a young boy stranded at sea with a man-eating tiger. Director Ang Lee tells Deborah Potter: "To believe in God you have to go through suffering and pain - you have to be in awe."
    JEWISH COMMUNITY FOOD STAMP CHALLENGE - As Thanksgiving approaches, Rabbi Leonard Gordon of Congregation Mishkan Tefila in Chestnut Hill, MA describes this effort of rabbis across the country undertaking the challenge of living for a week on the food stamp budget of $31.50.
