    Johnny Carson: American Masters Johnny Carson was seen by more people than anyone else in American history - a fixture of national life, a piece of the cultural furniture, a part of the Zeitgeist. In exploring the career, the complexities and contradictions of the biggest star television has ever produced, American Masters had his estate's first-time-ever cooperation and permission - unrestricted entree into his personal archives and, perhaps, Carson's greatest legacy - all episodes of The Tonight Show from 1970-1992.
    Clues about his life, stories about his childhood and early days in the business can be found there - as well as in the expansive family albums and memorabilia. Original interviews with friends, colleagues, his wives and the many performers who appeared, or began, on The Tonight Show, offer additional texture and context - Carl Reiner, Mel Brooks, Jay Leno, David Letterman, Ellen DeGeneres, Jimmy Fallon, Jerry Seinfeld, Bill Cosby, Steve Martin, among others.

    America Reframed [#106] Trust This film begins when Marlin, an 18-year-old Hondurena, shares a hidden history about her childhood with a neighborhood youth theater company. Marlin's story is about resilience: she endured rape as young girl, survived a harsh and difficult journey from Honduras to the US, suffered further abuse at the hands of her own brother, and overcame substance addiction. The film captures the amazing response from her fellow actors and the unexpected journey her story takes them on together: they transform Marlin's story into a daring, original play and Marlin re-claims power over the narrative of her life story. "Trust" is about creativity and the unexpected resources inside youth who may be discounted because of their youth, race or ethnicity or because they come from under-resourced neighborhoods without access to arts programs. duration 1:24:54   STEREO (Secondary audio: none)

    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

    Global Voices [#525] Poor Us: The Animated History of Poverty Do we know what poverty is? The poor may always have been with us, but attitudes towards them have changed. Beginning in the Neolithic Age, Ben Lewis's film takes us through the changing world of poverty. You go to sleep, you dream, you become poor through the ages. And when you awake, what can you say about poverty now? There are still very poor people, to be sure, but the new poverty has more to do with inequality? duration 53:34   STEREO

    Moyers & Company [#215H] A Mother Fights Toxic Trespassers This week: biologist, mother and activist Sandra Steingraber explains why she was willing to go to jail for blocking access to the construction of a storage and transportation facility involved in the controversial process of fracking. Steingraber has become internationally known for building awareness about the toxic trespassers she says are contaminating our air, water, and food - and threatening our children's health. With government captured by the very industries it's supposed to regulate, Steingraber has lost patience with politicians and corporations, but says our kids need to know "mom is on the job" of preventing destruction to the environment. duration 56:46   STEREO TVRE

    Religion & Ethics NewsWeekly [#1633] RELIGION AND THE ENVIRONMENT - A national organization called Interfaith Power and Light - IPL - is bringing different faiths together on environmental issues, especially climate change. Although pastors have often been reluctant to talk about the environment from the pulpit, Lucky Severson reports that IPL wants houses of worship to invest in energy efficiency and to serve as examples to the people in the pews, encouraging them to become energy efficient in their homes.
    BASEBALL AS A ROAD TO GOD - Baseball has its own relics, prophets and rituals - as does religion - according to John Sexton, president of New York University and author of "Baseball as a Road to God." But beyond surface similarities, Sexton tells Bob Faw, the game's most magnificent moments, its timelessness and its intensity, can bring us to a sense of "the ineffable" - the transcendent.

    Washington Week [#5242H] * Late Thursday the FBI released video and photos of two men suspected in the Boston Marathon bombing. Investigators are asking for the public's help in identifying the men who were spotted carrying back packs near the race finish line on Monday. The twin blasts killed 3 people and left more than 170 others wounded. Tom Gjelten of NPR will have the latest on the investigation.
    * Efforts to strengthen gun control laws following the Newtown massacre went down to defeat in the Senate on Wednesday. President Obama blamed the legislation's failure on fear-mongering and misinformation adding, "Instead of supporting this compromise, the gun lobby and its allies willfully lied about the bill." Four Republicans voted for the amendment: Sens. Susan Collins, Mark Kirk, John McCain, and Pat Toomey. Four Democrats opposed it: Sens. Max Baucus, Mark Begich, Heidi Heitkamp, and Mark Pryor. Jeff Zeleny of ABC News will report on why, despite the aggressive push by the president and emotional pleas from families of gun-violence victims, the bipartisan plan to support expanded background checks were rejected by lawmakers on both sides of the aisle.
    * The Senate's bipartisan Gang of Eight rolled out its proposal for comprehensive immigration reform this week. The legislation hinges on bolstering border security while creating a temporary worker program and providing a path to citizenship for the estimated 11 million people who are in the country illegally. Some conservatives say the plan is nothing more than aggressive amnesty. Fawn Johnson of National Journal will explain the practical measures contained in the compromise plan.
    * Karen Tumulty of The Washington Post will report on the week in politics and the ongoing political debates over gun control and immigration reform.

    THIS WEEK in Northern California [#2426H] April 19, 2013 Guest Host: Joshua Johnson.
    News Panel:
    IMMIGRATION REFORM - As immigration reform legislation works its way through the US Senate, there's much at stake for two of California's leading industries - agriculture and technology. The bill, presented by a bipartisan group of lawmakers known as the "Gang of Eight," contains several controversial elements including a pathway to citizenship, new visa programs for low and high-skilled workers, changes to family-based visas and a greater emphasis on employment and education skills.
    CALIFORNIA ENVIRONMENTAL QUALITY ACT - CEQA may be in for an overhaul. The 43-year-old landmark law requires state and local agencies to identify and try to mitigate the environmental impacts of development and construction projects. Critics say the act has been abused by special interest groups, while supporters say environmental protections should not be watered down. Senate President Pro Tem Darrell Steinberg is leading the reform effort, while Gov. Brown continues to weigh the likelihood of changing CEQA this year.
    CHEVRON REFINERY BLASTED - Chevron is under fire from the US Chemical Safety Board (CSB) for last summer's explosion at its Richmond refinery that left 15,000 residents and employees in need of medical care. The oil giant has been accused of negligence in its long-term plant maintenance, a problem seen at other refineries elsewhere. The results of the regulatory board's report will be presented at a public hearing in Richmond on April 19.
    Guests: Emil Guillermo, Asian American Legal Defense and Education Fund; Paul Rogers, San Jose Mercury News; and Jaxon Van Derbeken, San Francisco Chronicle.
    GOV. BROWN ON CLIMATE CHANGE AND CHINA - Gov. Jerry Brown is calling his trade mission to China a success, after a whirlwind eight-day visit to six cities. But it was more than just business deals that Brown was after. The Governor worked to enlist China as a partner in California's fight against climate change. "No one group can solve the problem," Brown said. "Not the United States. Not California. Not Japan. Not China. We all have to do it." KXTV political editor John Myers looks at why the governor is bullish on the country's efforts, in this special report for KQED.
