    Moyers & Company [#146H] What It's Like to Go to War America has been at war for over a decade, with millions of soldiers having seen death and dying up close in Afghanistan and Iraq. But most Americans -- watching comfortably on their TVs and computers, witness to statistics, speeches, and "expert" rhetoric -- don't get what's really going on there. In an encore edition of Moyers & Company (check local listings), Bill talks to Karl Marlantes - a highly-decorated Vietnam veteran, Rhodes Scholar, author, and PTSD survivor - about what we on the insulated outside need to understand about the minds and hearts of our modern warriors. Marlantes shares with Bill intimate stories about how his battlefield experiences both shaped him and nearly destroyed him, even after returning to civilian life. "'Thou shalt not kill' is a tenet you just do not violate, and so all your young life, that's drilled into your head," Marlantes tells Bill. "And then suddenly, you're 18 or 19 and they're saying, 'Go get 'em and kill for your country.' And then you come back and it's like, 'Well, thou shalt not kill' again. Believe me, that's a difficult thing to deal with." "You take a young man and put him in the role of God, where he is asked to take a life -- that's something no 19-year-old is able to handle." What it's like to go to war. Next on Moyers & Company. duration 52:46   STEREO TVG

    Globe Trekker [#1110] Amsterdam City Guide 2 Brianna and Jonathan Atherton travel to Amsterdam, the capital of the Netherlands that was built around a network of beautiful canals overlooked by the gabled mansions of 17th century merchants. Jonathan visits the Rijksmuseum, which has a magnificent collection of paintings by the great Dutch Masters, while Brianna marvels at the artistic genius of Vincent van Gogh at the Van Gogh Museum. She then visits a replica of an East India cargo, discovering how the great wealth of the city was extracted from the Dutch colonies in Asia, while on the other side Jonathan observes a dockland squat. Briana later ventures to the Anne Frank House and hears about her family's last days in hiding from the Nazis. In stark contrast, Jonathan ends his trip partying at the Gay Parade, one of Amsterdam's biggest events of the year. duration 56:23   STEREO TV14 (Secondary audio: DVI)

    Nature [#2904#] My Life As A Turkey Based on a true story. Deep in the wilds of Florida, writer and naturalist Joe Hutto was given the rare opportunity to raise wild turkeys from chicks.

As it turned out, this was harder than he ever imagined. Hutto's story eventually became a book, Illuminations in the Flatlands. duration 55:16   SRND51 TVPG (Secondary audio: DVI)

    Nova scienceNOW [#604H] Can I Eat That? What are the secrets behind your favorite foods? Why are some treats - like chocolate chip cookies - delectable, while others - like cookies made with mealworms - disgusting? You may think you understand what makes something sweet, salty or bitter, but David Pogue gets a taste of a much more complicated truth as he ventures into labs and kitchens where everything from apple pie to Thanksgiving turkey to juicy grasshoppers is diced, sliced, dissected and put under the microscope. If scientists can uncover exactly what's behind the mouth-watering flavors and textures we take for granted every day, could they help us enjoy our food more - without packing on the pounds? duration 55:17   STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: DVI)

    Washington Week [#5221H] President Obama's historic trip to Asia was overshadowed this week by escalating violence in the Middle East. In addition, there were the looming fiscal cliff negotiations and post-election politics on Capitol Hill.
    * The President dispatched Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to the region to help finalize a cease fire agreement between Israel and the Palestinians, But are the chances for peace more complicated now that with new leaders and power structures in the region following the Arab Spring? We'll get analysis from Peter Baker of The New York Times who traveled overseas with the president this week.
    * Molly Ball of The Atlantic will examine the post-election politics surrounding the fiscal cliff negotiations and the political maneuvering ahead.
    * Meanwhile, many Americans will be spending part of their holiday weekend shopping. But with a sluggish economic recovery and the potential for tax increases if a deficit deal is not reached by year's end, will shoppers spend less? Jim Tankersley of National Journal will report on some of the key issues here at home and overseas that could slow down the US economic recovery.
    * While millions of people will be spending this holiday weekend with family and friends, that's not the case for tens of thousands of men and women serving in the military. Martha Raddatz of ABC News shares some of the untold stories of sacrifice in this week's Washington Week Backstory.

    Grand Coulee Dam: American Experience Grand Coulee was more than a dam; it was a proclamation. In the wake of the Great Depression, America turned from private enterprise to public works - not simply to provide jobs, but to restore faith. The ultimate expression of Franklin Roosevelt's New Deal, Grand Coulee played a central role in transforming the Northwest; it was the largest hydroelectric power producing facility in the world when it was completed in March 1941. After WWII, a vast irrigation project made possible by the dam helped turn the barren deserts of central Washington into rich farmland. But the dam prevented access to one of the greatest salmon rivers in the world. Deprived of the salmon - their most important resource - the native people who lived along the Columbia witnessed a profound cultural decline. Featuring the men and women who lived and worked at Grand Coulee and the native people whose lives were changed, as well as historians and engineers, this film explores how the tension between technological achievement and environmental impact hangs over the project's legacy. duration 56:46   STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: none)
