    Dangerous Edge: A Life of Graham Greene This film is a portrait of a writer Graham Greene. It explores how Greene's life both inspired great writing and drove him to attempt suicide. He was a British spy, a doubting Catholic, and a manic-depressive who wrote critically-acclaimed, best- selling novels, including The Quiet American, Brighton Rock, The End of the Affair and The Third Man. This documentary weaves Greene's novels and movies into the story of his life: the struggle between good and evil... love and betrayal; it reveals an extraordinary man who traveled the globe to escape the boredom of ordinary existence and became a writer addicted to danger. The film is a journey in search of Greene's most elusive character: himself. Sir Derek Jacobi narrates the film and actor Bill Nighy reads from Greene's writing. Other major participants include novelist and screenwriter Sir John Mortimer, novelist and former SIS agent John Le Carre, award-winning literary critic and novelist David Lodge, acclaimed writer Paul Theroux, former CIA operative and author of The Great Game Frederick Hitz, Greene's wife, Vivien, and his daughter Caroline Bourget. duration 56:46   STEREO TVPG

    Hemingway In Cuba The story of Ernest Hemingway's 30-year love affair with the West Indies republic is recounted in this documentary. Cuba captured Ernest Hemingway's fertile imagination and inspired him to create now-legendary fictional characters: Harry Morgan of To Have and Have Not, Thomas Hudson of Islands in the Stream and Santiago of The Old Man and the Sea. The program travels to Cuba to capture Hemingway's old haunts - many of which remain unchanged - and explores Hemingway's real-life adventures in Cuba, from his passion for marlin fishing and safari hunting, as well as the influence of his wives and lovers on his life and work. It presents archival footage and includes interviews with Cuban scholars and Hemingway biographers who discuss how Cuba's culture, religion and even its volatile politics influenced this legendary American author. duration 57:32   TVPG (Secondary audio: DVI)

    Moyers & Company [#213H] MLK's Dream of Economic Justice * Martin Luther King, Jr., who died 45 years ago this month, had long known that racial equality was inextricably linked to economic equity - fairness for all, including working people and the poor. In the last year of his life, as he moved toward Memphis and assassination, Dr. King announced the Poor People's Campaign to demand an "Economic Bill of Rights" for all Americans, regardless of color. But nearly a half-century later, that dream is still a dream deferred. This week, Pulitzer Prize-winning historian Taylor Branch and author and theologian James Cone join Bill to discuss Dr. King's vision of economic justice, and why so little has changed for America's most oppressed.
    * Also on the show, poet Kyle Dargan, whose poetry provides a window into the humanity that Branch & Cone say is essential to get people working towards justice, visits Bill to talk about and read from his work.

Correspondent Brian Epstein reports about a plan devised by Mayor Michael Bloomberg that offers incentives to low-wage earners who save their tax refunds. The "American Voices" essay is by Dan Ariely, professor of psychology and behavioral economics at Duke University. Maria Hinojosa anchors. duration 26:46   STEREO TVRE

    Religion & Ethics NewsWeekly [#1631] INDIA SEX SELECTION - Recent attacks on women in India have spotlighted gender inequality there. In India, boy children have been preferred over girl children for centuries, in part because only boys can carry on the family's lineage, and also because the family must provide a dowry when their daughter gets married-even though dowries have been outlawed for half a century. As Fred de Sam Lazaro reports, the abortion of female fetuses has meant 5 boy babies are born to only 4 girl babies, but rising prosperity in India has led some families to view girls and boys as being of equal value.
    KEEPING THE SABBATH - The fast pace of life and the many distractions created by technology have led a Presbyterian pastor in Virginia to experiment with taking one day a week with her family - without computers, work or even errands - a day for "holy time." As Judy Valente reports, the idea is, for at least one day a week, to stop producing more and more, and learn to be content and appreciate the gift of that day - the Sabbath.
    JIM WALLIS - Bob Abernethy and Kim Lawton interview the social activist and CEO of Sojourners magazine about his new book On God's Side. Wallis advocates solving the country's major problems through a national Christian conversion that emphasizes serving "the common good."

    Washington Week [#5240H] * While the White House is playing down threats from North Korea that it is preparing to attack the United States, the Pentagon is dispatching US warships to the region and beefing up missile defense systems as precautionary measures. North Korea's hostile rhetoric and saber-rattling are nothing new. But with limited intelligence, there are growing concerns about North Korea's capabilities. David Sanger of The New York Times will report on the escalating tensions and deteriorating situation along the Korean Peninsula and the US response.
    * A robust stock market, improving housing market and rallying car sales are trends that seem to reflect rising confidence in the economy. Job growth has even picked up in recent months, but Labor Department reports show much of the growth has been created by companies filling low-wage, low-skilled jobs. David Wessel of The Wall Street Journal will take a closer look at how some inconsistent indicators are projecting mixed signals about the future of the US economic recovery.
    * A bipartisan group of Senators seems to be on the verge of reaching an agreement on an immigration reform bill. But there are a few obstacles that must be resolved first including determining the best path to earned citizenship and an employment verification system.

    * Plus, Amy Walter of The Cook Political Report will have a wrap-up of this week's political stories from South Carolina's Mark Sanford to Hillary Clinton's return to the public stage.

    THIS WEEK in Northern California [#2424H] April 5, 2013 Guest Host: Thuy Vu.
    News Panel:
    PRESIDENT OBAMA IN BAY AREA - President Obama visited the Bay Area for the first time since his re-election to raise money for Democratic Party candidates and to gain support for returning Rep. Nancy Pelosi to the position of House Speaker. In San Francisco, the president was met by environmental activists protesting the construction of the Keystone XL oil pipeline. Meanwhile in Silicon Valley, newcomer and fellow Democrat Ro Khanna says he will challenge six-term Congressman Mike Honda, going against the wishes of the president. The race is expected to be one of the most heated in the 2014 election.
    BAY BRIDGE TANKER CRASH REPORT - The California Board of Pilot Commissioners has suspended the license of pilot Guy Kleess, who was found responsible for crashing an oil tanker into a western-span tower of the Bay Bridge this past January. Also, following the discovery of faulty steel rods on the new eastern span of the bridge, Caltrans investigators are still assessing what caused them to break and whether other parts produced by the same manufacturer may be at risk of malfunctioning. < br />TESLA MOTORS GEARS UP - Palo Alto-based electric car manufacturer Tesla Motors has unveiled its first financing plan to make their nearly $70,000 Model S more accessible to consumers. With financing from Wells Fargo or US Bank, drivers would only need a 10% down payment. The ten-year old company also announced it is profitable for the first time. The news initially sent stock prices soaring, but Wall Street seems unconvinced that the new loan program will lead to a significant increase in consumer demand.
    Guests: Carla Marinucci, San Francisco Chronicle; Tom Vacar, KTVU News; and David R. Baker, San Francisco Chronicle
    DANNY GLOVER, EXECUTIVE PRODUCER OF THE HOUSE I LIVE IN - Actor and San Francisco native Danny Glover talks about The House I Live In, a new documentary he championed as executive producer.

"It's really not a war on drugs, it's a war on people," Glover explains to KQED's Joshua Johnson.
