    Globe Trekker [#1111] Spanish Islands Alex Riley explores the glorious Spanish Islands, visiting the Balearics off the coast of Spain and the Canary Islands near Africa. He begins on the millionaires' playground that is Mallorca and hops over to Ibiza, where he goes clubbing with the beautiful people and then winds down at a yoga resort. Alex next travels to Formentera, a sparsely populated island famous for mud baths and massive boats. He then visits the Canary Islands, starting with Gran Canaria where he revels at the festival of the Virgen del Rosario and explores the island's ancient caves. On Tenerife, Alex hikes up the Tiede volcano, Spain's highest peak, and later swims alongside a mother whale and her calves. He tries kite surfing in Fuerteventura and later tests his corralling skills at a goat rodeo duration 56:35   STEREO TVRE (Secondary audio: DVI)

    Moyers & Company [#147H] United States of ALEC * In an encore broadcast, Moyers & Company presents a report on the most influential corporate-funded political force most of America has never heard of - ALEC, the American Legislative Exchange Council. A national consortium of state politicians and powerful corporations, ALEC presents itself as a "nonpartisan public-private partnership". But behind that mantra lies a vast network of corporate lobbying and political action aimed to increase corporate profits at public expense without public knowledge.
    In state houses around the country, hundreds of pieces of boilerplate ALEC legislation are proposed or enacted that would, among other things, dilute collective bargaining rights, make it harder for some Americans to vote, and limit corporate liability for harm caused to consumers - each accomplished without the public ever knowing who's behind it. One Wisconsin politician describes ALEC as "a corporate dating service for lonely legislators and corporate special interests."
    "United States of ALEC" is a collaboration between Okapi Productions, LLC and the Schumann Media Center, headed by Bill Moyers, which supports independent journalism and public watchdogs including the Center for Media and Democracy, whose investigators are featured in the report.< br />* Also re-airing is Bill's conversation with Philip Appleman, whose creativity spans a long life filled with poetry, fiction, philosophy, and religion. A scholar of Charles Darwin, Appleman edited the critical anthology Darwin, and wrote the poetry books Darwin's Ark and Darwin's Bestiary. Appleman's latest poetry collection is Perfidious Proverbs.
