    Pacific Heartbeat [#202] Tonga: The Last Place On Earth Tonga is a peaceful island nation, as distant from modernity as it is physically from the western world. Ethnic Tongans convicted of murder, gang violence and other serious crimes, are being deported from the United States to Tonga. Forced to leave behind spouses, children, and family, these convicts are sent to a homeland many know nothing about. Will they adapt and survive in a community that is wary to have them? And how will the influx of these hardened criminals change Tonga: The Last Place on Earth? duration 56:46   STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: none)

    Play Again What are the consequences of a childhood removed from nature? One generation from now most people in the US will have spent more time in the virtual world than in nature.
    New media technologies have improved our lives in countless ways. Information now appears with a click. Overseas friends are part of our daily lives. And even grandma loves Wii. But what are we missing when we are behind screens? And how will this impact our children, our society, and eventually, our planet?
    At a time when children play more behind screens than outside, this moving and humorous documentary explores the changing balance between the virtual and natural worlds. It follows 6 teenagers who, like the "average American child," spend 5 to 15 hours a day behind screens. It unplugs these teens and takes them on their first wilderness adventure - no electricity, no cell phone coverage, no virtual reality. Through the voices of children and leading experts including journalist Richard Louv, sociologist Juliet Schor, environmental writer Bill McKibben, educators Diane Levin and Nancy Carlsson-Paige, neuroscientist Gary Small, parks advocate Charles Jordan, and geneticist David Suzuki, this program investigates the consequences of a childhood removed from nature and encourages action for a sustainable future.

    Lost Bird Project This captivating nature documentary charts sculptor Todd McGrain's efforts to memorialize five birds - the Great Auk, Carolina Parakeet, Labrador Duck, Passenger Pigeon and Heath Hen - driven to extinction in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. It follows McGrain and his brother-in-law Andy as they embark on a road trip in search of the last-known locations of the birds and seek permission to install McGrain's six-foot-tall bronze sculptures on those sites. Travelling from the tropical swamps of Florida to the rocky coasts of Newfoundland to the shores of Martha's Vineyard, the men spend more than two years scouting locations, talking to park rangers, speaking at town meetings and battling bureaucracy in their effort to gather support for the project. An elegy to the five birds, the program is a thoughtful and sometimes humorous look at the artist and his mission. duration 56:46   STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: DVI)

    Religion & Ethics NewsWeekly [#1634H] CHILDREN'S MARCH 50TH ANNIVERSARY: In May 1963, hundreds of children - some as young as 6 years old - faced police dogs, fire hoses and arrest, to march against segregation in Birmingham, Alabama. Experts say it was a pivotal moment in the struggle for civil rights. Kim Lawton looks back at the march and its legacy and interviews civil rights leaders and some who marched as children, including University of Maryland, Baltimore County President Freeman Hrabowski, who was then 12 and who describes the personal impact of marching and being put in jail.
    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.

    Paving The Way: The National Park-To-Park Highway [#101] See America First At a time when train travel to the National Parks was only for the wealthy, this program follows the convergence of US Land being set aside for all people, the development of the "autos for the everyman" and the need to escape the drone of WWI and the 1918 flu pandemic. With this need for release, 12 intrepid motorists embark upon the 1920 inaugural tour of the National Park-to-Park Highway. Traveling 5000 miles over 76 days to promote the need for good roads, these individuals also explore the idea of what it means to 'See America First' while touring in the western United States, instead of visiting their ancestry in war torn Europe. duration 56:09   STEREO TVG

    • KQED Plus OTA ? Optimistically planned maintenance: Fri 12/05 mid-morning

      (DT54.1 thru 54.5) Assuming that the weather and road conditions permit, we plan to do a bit of maintenance on our KQEH transmitter the morning of Friday 12/05… hopefully 10am-11am-ish, but could be a bit later. Most of the work should not affect the outgoing signal, but there will need to be a cable swap […]

    • Mon 11/03/14: Work on KQED Plus tower (DT54)

      Another station needs to do maintenance on its equipment on the tower on Monument Peak, requiring that we switch our DT54 Over the Air signal from the main antenna to the auxiliary when the work starts, then back to the main antenna at the conclusion. These switches should cause momentary outages only, and most receivers […]
