    In Search of Myths and Heroes [#101] The Queen of Sheba/Arthur: The Once & Future King In his first journey, Michael Wood looks for the Queen of Sheba, one of the world's most famous fascinating heroines. She's been portrayed as goddess, demon, femme fatale - but did she really exist? The myth of Sheba takes Wood on a quest for clues around the Red Sea, from Egypt to Eritrea and Ethiopia and on to the earliest civilization of Arabia in Yemen to reveal the surprising truth behind the legend. duration 56:12   STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: DVI)

    In Search of Myths and Heroes [#102] Arthur: The Once & Future King In the second segment, Wood explores the greatest British myth: the tale of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table. Traveling around the Celtic world from Cornwall to Wales, Brittany, Ireland and Scotland, Wood uncovers the extraordinary story of how a shadowy Welsh freedom fighter - a Dark Age Che Guevara - became a medieval superman and, finally, the model of a Christian hero. On the way, viewers discover the real stories behind the Round Table, Excalibur and the Holy Grail itself: the unattainable, mystical cup of Christ, which has inspired poets, novelists and filmmakers from the Middle Ages right down to Indiana Jones, Monty Python and The Da Vinci Code. In an intriguing piece of historical detective work, Wood offers a tantalizing glimpse of a historical Arthur - but in the unlikeliest of places. duration 56:46   STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: none)

    Religion & Ethics NewsWeekly [#1626] NONE OF THE ABOVE: WHO ARE THEY? - Part 1 of a 3-part series on the fast-growing number of Americans - now 20% of US adults - who have no affiliation with any religious organization. Host Bob Abernethy reports the results of a joint Pew Forum/RENW survey on the characteristics of the unaffiliated, especially the one-third of young people 18 to 29 who describe themselves as atheists, agnostics or "nothing in particular." Why is this group growing so fast, and what are the implications of this growth for politics and religion? < br />VATICAN NUNS CONTROVERSY - Fifty years ago Pope John XXIII convened a series of meetings in Rome known as the Second Vatican Council, which produced significant changes in Catholic life. But the legacy of Vatican II is still debated. Kim Lawton reports on how that debate has played a role in the current crisis between the Vatican and many US nuns. Last April, the Vatican accused the umbrella group that represents the majority of American nuns of "doctrinal confusion".

    Washington Week [#5235H] * The "sequester" was never supposed to happen. It was a short-term solution agreed to by the White House and Congress in August 2011 as a means to avoid the debt ceiling crisis. But as the March 1 deadline approaches, it looks like $85 billion in deep, across-the-board federal spending cuts will take effect on Friday. That's the same day President Obama has scheduled meetings with congressional leaders to discuss ways to avert the impact of the sequester and address the looming federal debt that currently exceeds $16.5 trillion. Can a twelfth hour deal be reached? And if the automatic cuts do take effect, what will the potential economic impact be? We'll get answers and analysis from David Wessel of The Wall Street Journal and Gloria Borger of CNN.
    * This week the US Supreme Court heard a case challenging a key civil rights law from the 1960's that helped ensure minorities could vote. The Voting Rights Act of 1965 bans discriminatory voting procedures nationwide. It includes a provision that requires some jurisdictions - those in areas with a history of making it difficult for African-Americans to vote - to get federal approval before changing voting procedures. Joan Biskupic of Reuters was at the Supreme Court to hear oral arguments and will report on this closely-watched case.

    BUDGET SEQUESTRATION - With budget talks on Capitol Hill at an impasse, the nation braces itself for automatic federal spending cuts, also known as "the sequester," that will affect major programs from education to the military. How hard and where will California be hit?
    BAY AREA HOUSING PRICES RISE - Bay Area real estate prices are on the rise. In almost every corner of the region, home-price appreciation is outpacing projected national growth.

    PROP. 8 AND DOMA - The Obama administration urged the US Supreme Court to strike down Proposition 8, California's ban on same-sex marriage. Silicon Valley companies, prominent Republicans and several state attorneys general have filed similar briefs in the past weeks as the high court prepares to consider the constitutionality of Prop 8 and the Defense of Marriage Act later this month.
    Guests: Andrew Ross, San Francisco Chronicle; Carolyn Said, San Francisco Chronicle; and Jolie O'Dell, VentureBeat.
    AILEEN HERNANDEZ: A PIONEER FOR WOMEN AND CIVIL RIGHTS - Born in Brooklyn, New York to Jamaican parents, Aileen Clarke Hernandez experienced the insults and injuries of racism and sexism early in life and dedicated herself to combatting those forces. Graduate school and an internship with the International Ladies' Garment Workers' Union drew her to California. An early and passionate advocate for women's rights, Hernandez was appointed by President Lyndon Johnson as the only woman to serve on the newly established US Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. She went on to found and eventually become president of the National Organization for Women. Now in her 80s, she chairs the California Women's Agenda, a state alliance of over 600 organizations, and is the founder and coordinator of the San Francisco Bay Area-based Black Women Stirring the Waters discussion group. Hernandez was recently featured in "Makers", a sweeping PBS documentary that showcases the stories of some of America's most influential women.

    Moyers & Company [#208H] Fighting Creeping Creationism * Religious fundamentalists backed by the Right Wing are finding increasingly stealthy ways to challenge evolution with the dogma of creationism. Their strategy includes passing education laws that encourage teaching creationism alongside evolution, and supporting school vouchers to transfer taxpayer money from public to private schools, where they can push a creationist agenda. But they didn't count on 19-year-old anti-creationism activist Zack Kopplin.
    From the time he was a high school senior in his home state of Louisiana, Kopplin has been speaking, debating, cornering politicians, and winning the active support of 78 Nobel Laureates, the American Association for the Advancement of Science, the New Orleans City Council, and tens of thousands of students, teachers and others around the country. This week, the Rice University history major joins Bill to talk about fighting laws and voucher programs that let publicly-funded creationist curriculum in the backdoor.
    * Also on the program, journalist and historian Susan Jacoby talks with Bill about the role secularism and intellectual curiosity have played throughout America's history, a topic explored in her new book, The Great Agnostic: Robert Ingersoll and American Free Thought.
