    Global Voices [#524] Stealing Africa How much profit is fair? Ruschlikon is a village in Switzerland with a very low tax rate and very wealthy residents. But it receives more tax revenue than it can use. This is largely thanks to one resident - Ivan Glasenberg, CEO of Glencore, whose copper mines in Zambia are not generating a large bounty tax revenue for the Zambians. Zambia has the 3rd largest copper reserves in the world, but 60% of the population live on less than $1 a day and 80% are unemployed. Based on original research into public documents, the film describes the tax system employed by multinational companies in Africa. duration 53:35   STEREO

    Focus On Europe [#3115] France - Where Working Moms Are Welcome GERMANY: TERRORISTS ON TRIAL - Beate Zschape, alleged to be the only surviving member of the far-right National Socialist Underground terror cell, is to be the main defendant in what is already a highly publicized trial. Zschape is accused of complicity in the murders of ten people, including nine people of Turkish and one ethnic Greek. Also among the list of charges are bank robbery, arson and membership of a terrorist organization. Zschape denies having been an accessory to the crimes. Joining her in the dock are four more alleged accomplices. Public scrutiny of the trial is sure to be intense. Even the selection of spectators has been subject to criticism; as things stand, Turkish reporters will not be among them.
    CZECH REPUBLIC: OPENING UP TO HISTORY - Wariness about ethnic Germans expelled from the Sudetenland in the wake of World War II have long clouded German-Czech relations. Now, one Czech village is determined to combat the fears and clear away the cliches. After the Second World War, some three million ethnic Germans had to leave their homes in Czechoslovakia behind and resettle in West Germany or further afield. Most the people who moved into their houses and villages didn't want to know about the previous residents. The citizens of the tiny village of Dekov are different, are however. They've been avidly researching the German history of their region - and helping to overcome the prejudices.
    FRANCE: WORKING MOMS ARE WELCOME - A lot of young mothers in France go back to work within a few months of giving birth - safe in the knowledge that their babies are in good hands. France has a relatively positive image in Europe when it comes to child care. The law makes free nursery schools available to children from the age of three. And there's an abundance of day-care centers and nannies - especially in and around Paris. The system makes it easier for young mothers to balance work and family.
    TURKEY: BEARDS BOOMING ON THE BOSPORUS - Hair transplants are more popular than ever in Turkey. Istanbul alone has over 250 special clinics now also offering beards. The latest hit in this growing sector is beard-transplant trips. For around 2,000 euros, follically challenged men get the full package: a new set of facial hair as well as the accompanying medication, a blood test and two nights in a hotel. This new type of transplant tourism is particularly popular among men from Arab countries. Whether for a tiny moustache or full beard - patients only spend six hours in the clinic, giving them plenty of time to explore Istanbul.

  • MORNING
  • 6:00 am
    Finding Kalman In this moving documentary a charismatic Holocaust survivor inspires her family to connect to relatives they never met. Focusing on her brother, Kalman, Anna recounts tales of a mischievous boy who tried to escape the Warsaw ghetto with her. Her daughter, an artist, devours the stories and paints his portrait over and over again. As Kalman's face emerges on canvas, the film moves from archival Warsaw ghetto footage to summers in a Catskills bungalow colony-from vibrant family life before World War II to now. Four generations grapple differently with their shared history. Roz, the artist felt her mother's pain, understanding it in stages. Maya, an Israeli granddaughter expresses her passion playing the viola. Performing in an Arab-Israeli youth orchestra, she questions why there has to be war when she sees the ease of making music with someone defined as her enemy. Great-grandson Roy wonders with concern how his generation will understand the Holocaust when it seems like just another story. As the loving family that grew from one survivor celebrates together, the film shows how four generations find light even in the darkest of places-with a resiliency that provides hope for the future. duration 28:00   STEREO TVG
  • 6:30 am
    Labyrinth Memory, art and hell collide as an Auschwitz survivor finally confronts the horrors of his past after 50 years of silence. Marian Kolodziej was on one of the first transports to enter Auschwitz. He survived five years imprisonment and never spoke of his experience until after a serious stroke in 1993. He began physical rehabilitation by doing pen and ink drawings depicting his memories of the horrific experience at Auschwitz 50 years earlier. Marian's drawings and art installation, which he called The Labyrinth, fill the large basement of a church near Auschwitz.
    In the documentary, The Labyrinth, Marian takes the audience on a journey through his drawings and art installations. Through the blending of his testimony and graphic drawings, we explore the memories and nightmares that were buried for years. Marian's story of survival and persistence, of life before, during and after Auschwitz are a testament to the human spirit. Marian continued to draw and to speak about his experiences until his death in 2009. Why would a confrontation with death trigger the need to record his long-suppressed memories? Why in this graphic, metaphorical way?
    The Labyrinth raises these questions in a visually stunning way. This documentary is eyewitness testimony that is unique in the annals of documenting the Holocaust. Marian is Polish Catholic,who used his drawings to give testimony to the horrors of Auschwitz and whose body of work provides a testament to suffering and inhumanity. And yet, it is a story of survival and human resilience.

    Nature [#2706] Clash: Encounters of Bears and Wolves What happens when two great predators come face to face in Yellowstone? The grizzly and the wolf -- they couldn't be more different. The bear is a loner, ranging far and wide in search of a rich variety of resources. The wolf hunts to survive and finds its strength in speed and teamwork. Their strategies have taken them to the very top of Yellowstone, and it's no simple matter when they meet. In every encounter, the opposition must be measured, strengths must be tested, and risks must be carefully weighed. Each time, one of them will have a tactical advantage -- but which one, and when? What emerges as each remarkable scene unfolds, is the keen awareness that runs through all of Yellowstone. Elk and eagle, coyote and raven, otter and owl, every creature must assess, decide, and act -- to fight or to flee? It's all in knowing your own strengths and limitations in the heat of the moment in Yellowstone. duration 55:15   STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: DVI)

    • KQET (DT25) Over the Air: Wed 8/27

      We are aware of the break-up issues for our DT25 Over the Air signal in the Monterey/Salinas area. This will also affect viewers of any cable or satellite signal provider using that transmitter as their source. Engineers are working on the problem.

      (Affects several San Francisco TV & Radio stations, including KQED 9.1, 9.2 & 9.3) During the week of August 25, Monday through Friday, between 9am and 4pm, several TV and radio stations will be switching to their Auxiliary antennas. This is being done so that the tower crew can perform routine maintenance on the regular […]

    • KQET Off Air Sun 8/03 morning

      (DT25.1, 25.2, 25.3) KQET DT25 was off the air for a portion of Sunday morning, due to the transmitter taking a power hit. The signal has been restored. Most receivers should have re-acquired our signal once it returned, but a few Over the Air viewers may need to do a rescan in order to restore […]
