    Washington Week [#5244H] * Two students from Kazakhstan and an American teenager are charged with obstructing the police investigation into the April 15 bombing in Boston. All 3 are college friends of bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev. Pete Williams of NBC News will have the latest on the international investigation and what the 3 friends told police about the 19-year-old bombing suspect. Michael Duffy of Time Magazine will have analysis of an exclusive Time/CNN/ORC poll done after the terror attacks in Boston that shows Americans are still more concerned about their own civil liberties than new homeland security measures.
    *Before President Obama headed to Mexico this week, he held a press conference to answer reporters' questions about his second-term priorities. While at the top of his list were tougher gun laws and comprehensive immigration reform, he also renewed his pledge to close the prison at Guantanamo Bay, something he failed to do in his first term. Christi Parsons of Tribune will have analysis of how President Obama's second-term agenda is being tested by unexpected news events and growing political polarization and gridlock in Washington. Doyle McManus of the Los Angeles Times will report on another dilemma facing the White House; how to help Syrian refugees and rebels while avoiding direct US military intervention in Syria despite evidence the administration says that chemical weapons are being used by Syrian forces.

    THIS WEEK in Northern California [#2428H] May 3, 2013 Guest host: Scott Shafer.
    News Panel:
    WILDFIRES: Early spring wildfires are burning, threatening homes and scorching hundreds of acres throughout the state. As snowpack data comes in, California faces one of the driest years on record. With forests and grasslands already tinder dry, firefighters are gearing up for what could be a nasty fire season.
    FUSION TROUBLES: Using the world's largest laser, scientists at Lawrence Livermore National Lab have been trying to ignite a nuclear fusion reaction in a laboratory essentially mimicking a tiny sun. Called the National Ignition Facility (NIF), the $5 billion project hopes to revolutionize energy by laying the groundwork for a potentially endless supply of clean energy. But after missing several deadlines and a management shake-up, the facility is now adjusting expectations.
    Guests: Paul Rogers, San Jose Mercury News & KQED; Amy Standen, KQED Science.
    NEXT MEAL: GENETICALLY ENGINEERED FOODS - What's really in your food? Last November's Proposition 37 would have required all genetically engineered foods in California to be labeled, but the initiative lost at the ballot box. Now California Democrat Senator Barbara Boxer is taking up the issue with a bill to require similar labeling by the FDA. In this report from KQED Science, producer Gabriela Quiros looks at the technology behind genetically engineered crops and what the pros and cons might be. A full half- hour documentary on the topic, "Next Meal: Engineering Food," airs at 7:30 pm, Wednesday May 8 on KQED 9.
    OUT IN BAY AREA SPORTS: First Openly Gay Man in Pro Sports Played for Oakland A's - When NBA player Jason Collins publicly came out as gay this week, many hailed him as the first active player in one of the four major US professional sports leagues to do so. However, that distinction should go to the Bay Area's Glenn Burke, a former Oakland A's baseball player who was open about his sexuality in the 1970s. While Collins' announcement has been met with more support than condemnation, Burke faced a different social and professional landscape. "Glenn was comfortable with who he was," said a childhood friend. "Baseball was not comfortable with who he was." Ted Griggs, President of Comcast SportsNet, a co-producer of the documentary Out. The Glenn Burke Story, sits down with Scott Shafer to talk about Glenn Burke, Jason Collins and the climate for gay athletes.

    Moyers & Company [#217H] The Sandy Hook Promise Francine and David Wheeler's youngest son Ben was killed in the December 14th attack at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut. Their grief has led them to the Sandy Hook Promise, a now-nationwide group founded by Newtown friends and neighbors to heal the hurt and find new ways to talk about and campaign against the scourge of gun violence in the US. One of their allies is folksinger and activist Peter Yarrow of Peter, Paul and Mary fame, who joined with the Wheelers and others in a February concert of harmony, resilience and solidarity.
    This week, we see excerpts from the concert, soon to appear on many public television stations. Francine Wheeler and Peter Yarrow discuss with Bill the power of music to create change, and their mission to protect children and adults from gun violence in communities across America. Later, the conversation continues as David Wheeler joins his wife to talk with Bill about what can be done and if the gun issue can be addressed rationally in a way that includes diverse viewpoints and bypasses partisan brinkmanship.

    Bonsai People - The Vision of Muhammad Yunus This documentary takes a compelling look at one Nobel Peace Prize winner's attempt to harness the power of the free market to solve the problems of poverty, hunger and inequality. Muhammad Yunus - 1 of only 7 people in the world to receive the Nobel Peace Prize, the Presidential Medal of Freedom and the Congressional Gold Medal - pioneered the innovative banking program known as microcredit. The program, which provides poor people with small loans they can use to launch businesses, has since spread to every continent and has benefited more than 100 million families. More recently, Yunus felt the need to move beyond microcredit into other fields, including healthcare. This doc examines how he, in partnership with some of the world's most visionary businesses, launched ventures designed to tackle social problems. One such collaboration with Danone provides affordable, nutritious yogurt for malnourished children in Bangladesh. duration 57:20   STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: none)

    Nature [#3011H] Legendary White Stallions This story of the world-famous Lipizzaner stallions focuses on the bond that develops between the horses and their caregivers, beginning at the moment of their birth and culminating in the perfect harmony between horse and rider demonstrated at the famous Spanish Riding School in Vienna, Austria. Their carefully choreographed movements were originally developed for the training of war horses; only the strongest and most athletic horses qualified.

    Secrets of the Dead [#1202] Bugging Hitler's Soldiers Spied upon by MI19 in a bugging operation of unprecedented scale and cunning, 4,000 German POW's revealed their inner thoughts about the Third Reich and let slip military secrets that helped the Allies win WWII. Based on groundbreaking research conducted by a team of leading German historians and scientists, the film will tell the story of how those confessions were stolen, how they changed the outcome of the war and how they can now reveal, in more shocking detail than ever before, the hearts and minds of the German fighter. The evidence that supports this extraordinary new chapter in the history of WWII will be told through powerful dramatic reconstructions. Acted by German actors, speaking both German and English, they will quote directly from the highlights of over 100,000 hours of secretly recorded and therefore unguarded conversations between German POWs held in Britain. These long lost voices of the past are being brought back to life, bringing with them unique and exclusive insights into What the Nazis Really Thought. duration 56:46   STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: none)
