  • 2:00 am
    AfroPop: The Ultimate Cultural Exchange [#502] Dear Mandela Destroyed homes, threats at gunpoint and high-court action, this battle by three young people to stand up for their rights is a testimony to people power. When the South African government promises to "eradicate the slums" and begins to evict shack dwellers far outside the city, three friends who live in Durban's vast shantytowns refuse to be moved. Dear Mandela follows their journey from their shacks to the highest court in the land as they invoke Nelson Mandela's example and become leaders in a growing social movement.

  • 5:00 am
    Schools That Change Communities A unique, engaging documentary that turns the current focus of education on its head. While most US schools keep their students bottled up in classrooms as a way of increasing their test scores, this very upbeat special focuses on a diverse range of K-12 public schools in five states that instead break down the walls between the school and its neighborhood. By viewing their surroundings as classrooms, students are not only invigorated, but also more motivated to learn the basics and how to think critically about solving problems they and the larger world they inhabit now face. duration 57:57   STEREO TVG
  • MORNING
  • 6:00 am
    Independent Lens [#1407H] The Revisionaries In Austin, Texas, 15 people influence what is taught to the next generation of American children. Once every decade, the highly politicized Texas State Board of Education rewrites the teaching and textbook standards for its nearly 5 million schoolchildren. And when it comes to textbooks, what happens in Texas affects the nation as a whole. duration 56:46   STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: DVI)
  • 7:00 am
    Frontline [#3004] A Perfect Terrorist It has been called the most spectacular terror attack since 9/11. On the night of November 26, 2008, 10 men armed with guns and grenades launched an assault on Mumbai with a military precision that left 166 dead. India quickly learned the attackers belonged to Lashkar-e-Taiba, a Pakistani militant group associated with Pakistan's secretive intelligence agency, the ISI. But what wasn't known then was that a Lashkar/ISI operative had been casing the city for two years, developing a blueprint for terror. His name was David Coleman Headley, and he'd been chosen for the job because he had the perfect cover: he was an American citizen. Frontline and ProPublica reporter Sebastian Rotella team up to investigate the mysterious circumstances behind Headley's rise from heroin dealer and US government informant to master plotter of the 2008 attack on Mumbai. duration 56:46   STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: none)
