    Model T's to War: American Ambulances on the Western Front, 1914-1918 Between 1914 and 1917 - prior to the United States' entry into World War I - more than 3000 American volunteers, paying their own passage, set sail for France to aid the war effort. This program focuses on the valiant work of the American Field Service, ambulance sections assigned to help the French Army in its fight against German forces.
    These young men drove Ford-built Model T's to the frontlines and saw their greatest glory in the battle of Verdun in 1916, when Field Service ambulances transported more than 250,000 wounded. Although American readers regularly followed the adventures of these brave ambulanciers through numerous accounts published in local and national newspapers of the era, few today know about their heroic deeds. This documentary seeks to shed light on this forgotten story. It takes viewers on an archaeological journey of discovery - from French battlefield sites still littered with World War I artifacts to recently discovered silent-film footage and hundreds of previously unpublished war-time photographs.

    Yanks Fight The Kaiser: A National Guard Division in WWI This documentary employs archival photographs, silent movies, period newsreels and German war footage to piece together the story of one National Guard unit's contributions to the "War to End all Wars." The 26th "Yankee" Division, comprised of citizen-soldiers from all six New England states, arrived in France in the fall of 1917, ill-equipped and untrained. Their previous combat experience took place on the Mexican border, where they tried - unsuccessfully - to defeat Pancho Villa's army. Over the course of four months, the French trained the Americans to survive the rigors of trench warfare. Ultimately, this relatively inexperienced regiment played a key role in every major battle of the war, fighting alongside General Pershing's three veteran army divisions. duration 56:46   STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: none)

    America Reframed [#115] Beyond Belief Susan Retik and Patti Quigley are two ordinary soccer moms living in the affluent suburbs of Boston until tragedy strikes. Rather than turning inwards, grief compels these women to focus on the country where the terrorists who took their husbands' lives were trained: Afghanistan. Over the course of two years, as they cope with loss and struggle to raise their families as single mothers, these extraordinary women dedicate themselves to empowering Afghan widows whose lives have been ravaged by decades of war, poverty and oppression - factors they consider to be the root causes of terrorism.
    As Susan and Patti make the courageous journey from their comfortable neighborhoods to the most desperate Afghan villages, they discover a powerful bond with each other, an unlikely kinship with widows halfway around the world, and a profound way to move beyond tragedy. From the ruins of the World Trade Center to those of Kabul and back, theirs is a journey of personal strength and international reconciliation, and a testament to the vision that peace can be forged... one woman at a time.

    Moyers & Company [#152H] Ending The Silence On Climate Change * Even as sadness turns to outrage over the Newtown tragedy, and powerful coalitions of leaders and celebrities speak out, those who value guns over lives continue unfazed and unabated. Bill Moyers reports on how the NRA and gun merchants continue to strong-arm Congress and state legislatures into keeping any and all discussion of sensible gun control off the table.
    * Also on the show, remember climate change? For the first time since 1984, the issue didn't even come up in a presidential debate. But bringing climate change back into our national conversation is as much a communications challenge as it is a scientific one. Scientist Anthony Leiserowitz, director of the Yale Project on Climate Change Communication, joins Bill to describe his efforts to do what even Hurricane Sandy couldn't - galvanize communities over what's arguably the greatest single threat facing humanity. Leiserowitz, who specializes in the psychology of risk perception, knows better than anyone if people are willing to change their behavior to make a difference.

    ALAWITE ANXIETY IN TURKEY - Turkish Alawites, an offshoot of Shia Islam, say their concerns about the war in Syria are driven less by sympathy for the Assad regime than by a fear of what might replace it. Fred de Sam Lazaro reports from the border between Turkey and Syria.
    SAVING CATHOLIC SCHOOLS - "The demise of Catholic schools has pained me for years," says Karen Carbone of New York City. But now her family is part of the effort to turn a parish school around and offer what expensive independent schools do at a much lower price.

    Washington Week [#5227H] After months of political brinkmanship, Congress reached a last-minute compromise to avoid the fiscal cliff. The deal averted raising taxes on most middle-class Americans but it didn't address the nation's serious deficit problems. Lawmakers postponed a decision on spending cuts for another two months.
    Vice President Biden and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell hammered out the New Year's Day deal that further highlighted the deep partisan politics that have prevented lawmakers from reaching any long-term or lasting solutions. Had the deal not been reached, the US economic recovery could have stalled and had a ripple effect on global economies. So what happens next and will the new 113th Congress that was sworn into office today be able to bridge the entrenched partisan divide in Washington?
    Gwen Ifill examines the political fallout of the fiscal negotiations and looks ahead to the next showdown over raising the federal debt ceiling with: Peter Baker of The New York Times, Susan Davis of USA Today, Eamon Javers of CNBC, and Michael Viqueira of NBC News.

    Global Voices [#318] Carmen Meets Borat Director Mercedes Stalenhoef follows the life of 17-year-old Carmen. She lives in a gypsy village in Romania, where the men spend their days tying one on and exchanging coarse words in her father's bar. In the evenings, she watches a Spanish soap opera and dreams of a better life in Spain, where the men are romantic and decent. Her plan to emigrate falls to pieces when an American film crew descends on her village to shoot "Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan." The village is used in the movie to show where the main character comes from and Borat depicts the villagers as primitive caricatures supposedly from Kazakhstan. duration 56:46   STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: none)
