    Focus On Europe [#3101] Greece's Refugees Want to Go Home GREECE: REFUGEES WANT TO GO HOME - They came by the hundred thousands in hopes of a better life in Europe. Now they are beginning to return to their home countries -- with no money and little hope. Many refugees from Afghanistan, Iran, Morocco, and Nigeria risked their lives to cross the Mediterranean or the precarious Evros River to enter Greece. But the government there arrested thousands of them on charges of illegal immigration. Greece is one of the most important transit countries for refugees heading for other European Union countries.
    BRITAIN/FRANCE: THE SCALLOP WAR - British trawlers fish for scallops in international waters off the coast of France. French fishermen don't like it one bit. They say the catch is made in French waters and outside the official season, leading to overfishing. French trawlers have now resorted to drastic measures, surrounding the British ships and preventing them from sailing on. Scallops are one of the most popular kinds of seafood, and in France they are an important economic resource.
    PORTUGAL/SPAIN: SEEKING HELP FROM THE NEIGHBORS - Portugal's economic crisis is affecting its health care system. More and more of its citizens are heading for Spain to go to the doctor or to the hospital. To fulfill its austerity obligations, the government in Lisbon began cutting its health care budget - reducing the number of clinics as well as prescriptions for expensive medicines. In some communities, there is no longer around-the-clock care. Many people are now taking advantage of the free emergency treatment available in Spain. The Spanish government ultimately charges Portugal for these services.
    CZECH REPUBLIC: CZECH FOR RUSSIANS - Historically, relations between the Czechs and Russia have usually been troubled. But a young Russian wants to help his countrymen put down roots in Prague. Igor Rubinovich belongs to a new generation of Russians who are turning their backs on the oligarch-dominated economy and lack of political transparency back home. They want to build their future elsewhere, and thousands of them now live in Prague. Igor has developed a kind of expat Facebook for them; "Klub Pragmatiki" is now helping Russians in Prague to network offline as well.

  • 6:00 am
    Aspen Institute Presents [#106] War & Peace in the Modern World On the heels of the presidential debate, which at least in part focused on foreign policy, the discussions in tonight's episode are both timely and pressing. The show opens with Jane Harman, Craig Nixon, Michael O'Hanlon, James Steinberg, Dina Temple-Raston discussing America's future military role in the world. There are enormous challenges including climate change, education, economy, failed states, terrorism, and other broad issues that affect our security and international stability. How much is our national security embedded in these broader challenges? Should we be spending more or less on our military? When should we intervene? How often should we be using drones? Should we reinstate the draft or mandatory National Service? This episode explores significant questions about the nature of war and the potential for peace. duration 56:46   STEREO (Secondary audio: none)
  • 7:00 am
    Nature [#2809H] Broken Tail: A Tiger's Last Journey Irish cameraman Colin Stafford-Johnson spent almost 600 days filming Broken Tail and his family for some of the finest tiger documentaries ever made. Broken Tail was the most charismatic tiger cub ever seen in Ranthambore, one of India's best protected tiger reserves. But suddenly and without warning Broken Tail abandoned his sanctuary and went on the run, moving through farmland and scrub until he was killed by a train nearly 200 miles from his home. To track Broken Tail's incredible journey, Colin and his soundman, Salim, retrace the tiger's path and piece together the cub's last days - and through his story reveal the fate of the few surviving tigers in India. duration 55:46   SRND51 TVPG (Secondary audio: DVI)
