    Secrets of the Dead [#1001] Churchill's Deadly Decision In the summer of 1940 Winston Churchill faced a terrible dilemma. France had just surrendered and only the English Channel stood between the Nazi's and Britain. Germany was poised to seize the entire French fleet, one of the biggest in the world. With these ships in his hands, Hitler's threat to invade Britain could become a reality. Churchill had to make a choice. He could either trust the promises of the new French government that they would never hand over their ships to Hitler. Or he could make sure that the ships never joined the German navy by destroying them himself. Secrets of the Dead: Churchill's Deadliest Decision reveals the darkest side of Britain's Finest Hour. Some call his decision a turning point in the war, others call it a terrible betrayal and a war crime. This is the story of what Churchill did next, and why; and how 1,300 French sailors died as a result in what the French still call 'our Pearl Harbour'. In the words of French survivors, some of whom still regard Churchill as a war criminal, and one of the British sailors who opened fire on his former allies, this is the forgotten story of Churchill's deadliest decision - to sink the French Fleet. duration 56:46   STEREO TVPG-V (Secondary audio: none)

    Focus On Europe [#3105] A Tale of One City SPAIN: THE RICH NEIGHBOR - The border-town of La Linea is close to bankruptcy. Many citizens actually earn their living outside the Euro zone by smuggling or working illegally on the British overseas territory of Gibraltar. La Linea is struggling to pay its employees, and the town is facing massive unemployment. That's quite a contrast to the heady days of the 1980s and 1990s when it was known for its laissez-faire attitude. Back then corruption was quite open and the town's bureaucracy was huge. Now the town's true financial situation is slowly coming to light.
    POLAND: HOMELESS IN KRAKOW - Icorn is an international association of cities dedicated to helping persecuted writers. The Polish city of Krakow has adopted a blogger called Kareem who had to flee his native Egypt. He studied law in Alexandria and spoke out in favor of a secular state with equal rights for women. This commitment brought him a five-year prison sentence in which he also suffered torture, long before the uprising against Egyptian leader Hosni Mubarak. Now Kareem's year in Krakow is ending, and he's hoping to get refugee status somewhere in Scandinavia. Returning to Egypt is not an option.
    "SMALL WORLDS" SERIES, PART 3 - ROMANIA: THE TURKISH ENCLAVE OF ADA KALEH - The island of Ada Kaleh on the River Danube used to be filled with bustling activity, coffee houses and Turkish bazaars. But about 40 years ago the island in southern Romania had to be evacuated because of a hydroelectric plant being installed. The authorities promised residents that they could relocate to the downstream island of Simian and that everything would be rebuilt there. But Simian is now a wasteland. Only part of the old fortress was rebuilt, and a number of graves were moved. The former inhabitants of Ada Kaleh were forced to reconstruct a new life for themselves on the mainland.
    BRITAIN/GERMANY: A TASTE FOR THINGS GERMAN - Brits having a hankering for things German - from the country's cars to the capital city of Berlin. The traditional German sausage, the "bratwurst", is more popular than ever. "Hermann ze German" is the brainchild of a young couple originally from the Black Forest region. Two years ago they opened their first sausage outlet under the name, and others have followed. Even their slogan plays on a stereotypical German accent "Our wurst is ze best". And the hungry Brits come in droves.

    THIS WEEK in Northern California [#2417H] February 8, 2013 Guest Host: Scott Shafer.
    News Panel:
    MEDICAL MARIJUANA - Medical marijuana advocates argued this week before the California Supreme Court that cities do not have the power to ban pot dispensaries, saying that it undermines the 1996 voter-approved state law allowing cannabis for medical use. Opponents say the law's language is vague. The case has sweeping ramifications for local governments across the state and in the Bay Area, where dozens of cities have enacted dispensary bans.
    SILICON VALLEY BOOM - Community members, elected officials, executives and civic leaders convene in San Jose for this year's State of The Valley Conference, Silicon Valley's annual "town meeting," to assess the outlook for the region. Meanwhile, the annual Silicon Valley Index shows jobs, income and IPOs are all on the rise, yet the gap between rich and poor is widening, particularly among some minority groups.
    GREAT WHITE SHARK - California is closer to becoming the first state in the nation to declare great white sharks an endangered species. The Fish and Game Commission voted Wednesday to designate the predator as a candidate for the list, with the final decision pending a year-long review.
    Guests: Peter Hecht, Sacramento Bee; Kara Swisher, All Things Digital; and Paul Rogers, San Jose Mercury News.
    PEDAL POWER: THE FUTURE OF CYCLING IN THE CITY - Over the past 6 years, the number of San Franciscans using bikes for everyday trips has increased 71%. San Francisco Bicycle Coalition Executive Director Leah Shahum talks about the future of cycling following the recent release of SFMTA's Bicycle Strategy, and San Francisco's potential as a world class city for bicycling.

    Moyers & Company [#205H] Who's Widening America's Digital Divide * America has a wide digital divide - high-speed Internet access is available only to those who can afford it, at prices much higher and speeds much slower in the US than they are around the world.
    But neither has to be the case, says Susan Crawford, former special assistant to President Obama for science, technology and innovation, and author of Captive Audience: The Telecom Industry and Monopoly Power in the New Gilded Age. Crawford joins Bill to discuss how our government has allowed a few powerful media conglomerates to put profit ahead of the public interest - rigging the rules, raising prices, and stifling competition. As a result, Crawford says, all of us are at the mercy of the biggest business monopoly since Standard Oil in the first Gilded Age a hundred years ago. "The rich are getting gouged, the poor are very often left out, and this means that we're creating, yet again, two Americas, and deepening inequality through this communications inequality," Crawford tells Bill.
    * Also on the show, journalist Nick Turse describes his unprecedented efforts to compile a complete and compelling account of the Vietnam War's horror as experienced by all sides, including innocent civilians who were sucked into its violent vortex. Turse, who devoted 12 years to tracking down the true story of Vietnam, unlocked secret troves of documents, interviewed officials and veterans - including many accused of war crimes - and traveled throughout the Vietnamese countryside talking with eyewitnesses to create his book, Kill Anything That Moves: The Real American War in Vietnam.

    For Love of Liberty: The Story of America's Black Patriots [#101] The first man to die in the cause that would become the American Revolution was black. Crispus Attucks, and others like him made the ultimate sacrifice to insure that their people would one day enjoy the right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Four generations later most African Americans were still slaves. Yet black men were willing to fight and die to save a nation that wouldn't even allow them the right to vote. As the country grew west, Buffalo Soldiers were there to keep the peace and at the Battle of San Juan Hill, Teddy Roosevelt's Roughriders owed their lives to the men of the 10th Cavalry. In the War to End all Wars, the Harlem Hellfighters spent more time in front line trenches than any other American unit, yet a white navel officer refused to allow black combat veterans to board his ship. In America, racism was rampant and during World War Two, the United States military was no different. duration 1:56:46   STEREO TVPG

    Nova [#4005H] Building Pharaoh's Chariot Around 3,600 years ago, reliefs in Egyptian tombs and temples depicted pharaohs and warriors proudly riding into battle on horse-drawn chariots. Some historians claim that the chariot launched a technological and strategic revolution, and was the secret weapon behind Egypt's greatest era of conquest known as the New Kingdom. But was the Egyptian chariot really a revolutionary design? How decisive a role did it play in the bloody battles of the ancient world? In this film, a team of archaeologists, engineers, woodworkers and horse trainers join forces to build and test two highly accurate replicas of Egyptian royal chariots. They discover astonishingly advanced features, including spoked wheels, springs, shock absorbers, anti-roll bars and even a convex shaped rear mirror, leading one of them to compare the level of design to the engineering standards of 1930's-era Buicks! By driving our pair of replicas to their limits in the desert outside Cairo, NOVA's experts test the claim that the chariot marks a crucial turning point in ancient military history. duration 55:31   STEREO TVPG
