    Dabbawallas This documentary explores a form of work that has existed in Bombay, India for more than 100 years. Each day 4,000 Dabbawallas (box persons) deliver 100,000 lunches at high levels of reliability. This delivery system functions without any of the trappings of modern day work, such as technology, business procedures and practices, and so on. The program focuses on what people in more-developed countries can learn from workers in less-developed countries, the reliance upon human and social ingenuity for organizing rather than relying on external mechanisms such as technology, and according respect for the seldom-heard voices of disadvantaged populations in India. By Paul Goodman. duration 56:11   STEREO TVG

    Great Decisions In Foreign Policy [#406] The Intervention Calculation The U.S., for better or worse, is often seen as the world's policeman.

    Nova [#4006] Earth from Space This film reveals a spectacular new space-based vision of our planet. Produced in extensive consultation with NASA scientists, NOVA takes data from earth-observing satellites and transforms it into dazzling visual sequences, each one exposing the intricate web of forces that sustains life on earth. Viewers witness how dust blown from the Sahara fertilizes the Amazon; how a vast submarine "waterfall" off Antarctica helps drive ocean currents around the world; and how the sun's heating up of the southern Atlantic gives birth to a colossally powerful hurricane. From the microscopic world of water molecules vaporizing over the ocean to the magnetic field that is bigger than Earth itself, this show reveals the astonishing beauty and complexity of our dynamic planet. duration 1:56:46   STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: none)

    Aspen Institute Presents [#201] 2013 Overview The second season of The Aspen Institute Presents premieres with an overview of the 2012 Aspen Ideas Festival. Hari Sreenivasan of PBS NewsHour, the host of the first episode, takes us to the best of the 2012 sessions but not before starting off with festival prep and a talk with Walter Isaacson, the President and CEO of The Aspen Institute. Last year's conversations and interviews, which continue to be relevant today, covered issues of corporate values, work-life balance, technology, parenting, the economy's outlook and national service. Featured speakers included Special Master of the 9/11 Victims Compensation Kenneth Feinberg, who is currently overseeing The One Fund; "Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mom" author Amy Chua; retired Admiral Mike Mullen; Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz; economist Lawrence Summers; CEO Marissa Mayer of Yahoo and retired General Stanley McChrystal. One of the most captivating subjects of the festival was on concussions in football, which began with a screening of American Man. The documentary profiles former NFL running back Kevin Turner and his struggles with ALS, also known as Lou Gehrig's disease; the film's conversation continued with a panel discussion. duration 56:46   STEREO (Secondary audio: none)
