    Secrets of the Dead [#904H] Japanese Supersub Spring, 1946. Ten months after the end of World War II, an explosion rocked the Pacific off the coast of Hawaii. America had just destroyed one of Japan's most advanced weapons systems. But this was no belated attack against the defeated Japanese. Rather, it was an attempt to keep an advanced, top-secret submarine out of the hands of the Russians. What was this sub and where had it come from? This program investigates, revealing the startling story of Japan's successful creation of a technological masterpiece-an aircraft carrier submarine that could blow up the Panama Canal, reach the US main land undetected, and unleash panic-inducing air attacks on American civilians. How close did Japan's secret sub come to attacking America? And how did America's own top-secret super-weapon put an end to the Japanese threat? duration 54:47   STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: DVI)

    Krakatoa This program revisits the events that led to the Indian Ocean's previously most-devastating tsunami, the eruption of the volcano Krakatoa. Using dramatic recreations and CGI, the program brings the May 20, 1883, eruption to life. The eruption reduced the island of Krakatoa to a third of its former size and sent waves that reportedly topped 100 feet high crashing onto Asian shores, killing 36,000 people. Segments of the program tie the resulting tsunami destruction to the December 26, 2004, tsunami. duration 1:26:46   STEREO TVPG-V

    In The Footsteps of Marco Polo Some people dream big dreams. Only a few bold adventurers live them. Two such adventurers are Denis Belliveau and Francis O'Donnell, who took a wild idea - to retrace Marco Polo's entire 25,000 mile land-and-sea route from Venice to China and back - and spent 2 incredible years of their lives trying to turn it into reality. "We made a pact," says O'Donnell, "that, under any conditions, no matter what, we were only coming back to the US 1 of 2 ways - either dead or successful."
    This program chronicles the extraordinary journey of two ordinary guys - Denis, at the time a wedding photographer, Francis an artist and US Marine veteran - as they venture on foot, on horseback, on camelback, in jeeps and trucks and boats and trains, through Venice, Turkey, Iran, Afghanistan, several former republics of the Soviet Union, China, Indonesia and India. Equal parts travelogue, adventure story, history trek and buddy movie, it chronicles their highs and lows as they retrace Polo's path, trying to see what he must have seen, feel what he must have felt.
    In a feat of undaunted courage, in the spirit of history's great adventurers, Belliveau and O'Donnell make their way across the world's largest land mass and back, securing - or, when necessary, forging - visas, surviving extreme temperatures, and talking their way out of jams brought on by Tajik soldiers, Chinese security officers, and an assortment of other bureaucrats, border guards and armed warriors. Interweaving Belliveau and O'Donnell's own tales with the original 13th century descriptions of Marco Polo, brimming with adventure, history, art, and no small amount of humor, this program is a unique cinematic experience.

    Washington Week with Gwen Ifill [#5305H] Gridlock in Washington is nothing new, but is it getting worse? As Congress prepares to start its month-long August recess, it is on track to being the least productive in history. Is the political polarization that has gripped Capitol Hill to blame or is the lack of results intentional? On issue after issue from the debt ceiling to immigration reform to gun control, Democrats and Republicans have failed to reach any compromises or comprehensive solutions.
    On Friday, the House will vote for the 40th time to roll back the Affordable Care Act passed in 2010. While repealing or dismantling "Obamacare" remains a top priority for the GOP, the chances it will happen are almost non-existent with the current Democratic-led Senate.
    Fissures within the Republican Party are also contributing to gridlock. The division was evident last year during Mitt Romney's failed presidential run. Fast forward to today and new battles are brewing between mainstream conservatives like Senator John McCain and New Jersey Governor Chris Christie and libertarians and other Tea Party members like Senators Rand Paul and Ted Cruz.
    Meanwhile President Obama continues his campaign-style push for his second-term agenda. He's also gearing up for another showdown with lawmakers over the debt ceiling that could potentially lead to a government shutdown in September.
    Gwen Ifill examines what's really going on in Washington and what it will take to get the White House and Congress to breakthrough the legislative gridlock and away from what looks to be the new normal in governing and politics with Dan Balz of The Washington Post and author of "Collision 2012", Jackie Calmes of The New York Times, and John Dickerson of Slate Magazine and CBS News.

    IMMIGRATION REFORM - Silicon Valley leaders and California Republicans are calling on Congress to pass comprehensive immigration reform. Citing family values, entrepreneurship and faith, major GOP donors and high tech CEOs are weighing in on the debate and pressing for decisive action.
    BART NEGOTIATIONS - BART and its unions continue negotiations as the threat of a strike looms. After a 4 1/2 day walk-out in July, Gov. Brown ordered both sides back to the bargaining table, but they appear to remain split over salaries and benefits. Commuters and transit agencies are preparing for a potential shut down Monday morning.
    OAKLAND SURVEILLANCE - Against protests by civil rights activists and privacy advocates, the Oakland City Council has unanimously approved a controversial surveillance center. They say the ability to continuously monitor video surveillance will help police respond to emergencies and make Oakland safer. Critics say the Domain Awareness Center could threaten civil liberties and turn Oakland into a police state.
    FBI BUST - In one of the biggest nationwide busts of child sex trafficking, the FBI has rescued 105 youth and arrested more than 100 alleged pimps. The FBI designated the Bay Area as a top hot spot for child sex trafficking; of the 76 cities included in the bust, the highest number of children were rescued in San Francisco, and the second-highest number of pimps were arrested.
    Guests: Carla Marinucci, San Francisco Chronicle; Tom Vacar, KTVU; Josh Richman, Bay Area News Group; and Aimee Allison, San Francisco Department on the Status of Women.

    Moyers & Company [#230H] The Faces of America's Hungry Here in the richest country on earth, 50 million of us - 1 in 6 Americans - go hungry. More than a third of them are children. Debates on how to address hunger - in both Congress and the media - are filled with tired cliches about freeloaders undeserving of government help, living large at the expense of honest, hardworking taxpayers. But the documentary "A Place at the Table" paints a truer picture of America's poor.
    On an encore broadcast Kristi Jacobson, one of the film's directors and producers, and Mariana Chilton, director of the Center for Hunger-Free Communities, join Bill to break these stereotypes apart and share how hunger hits hard at people from every walk of life. "The cost of food insecurity, obesity and malnutrition is way larger than it is to feed kids nutritious food," Jacobson tells Bill. "There's no opportunity for people who are low-income to really engage in our democracy," says Chilton. "I think they're actively shut out."

    Titanic Belfast: Birthplace of a Legend The tragic end of Titanic is well known. What is less well known is the story of her origin, how and why she was built and by whom. This film, releasing in time for the 100th anniversary of the disaster, tells us many new details of the Titanic. It traces Belfast's emergence as a shipbuilding powerhouse in the early 19th Century, primarily in the form of the Harland and Wolff shipyard. In 1907 the White Star Line awarded Harland and Wolff a contract to construct 3 superb steam liners that would hit new heights in terms of passenger safety, comfort, style and sheer size. The first 2 to be commissioned were the sister ships Olympic and the Titanic, with the construction of the Titanic beginning in March of 1909.
    Descendants of shipworkers and historians explore the role the building of the massive Titanic played in the lives of the inhabitants of Belfast. Sadly, the Titanic's ending is well known and tragic - on her first voyage, shortly before midnight on the night of April 14th, 1912 the ship struck an iceberg in the freezing North Atlantic.
    In less than 3 hours she sank to the ocean floor, with the loss of over 1500 lives. 36 of those lost lives belonged to men and women of Belfast. Seldom-seen images of Titanic during her construction and preparation for launch are included in this new look at the doomed ship. Interviews were filmed at the Ulster Folk and Transport Museum. The film also looks at the emerging Titanic museum in Belfast.

    Titanic with Len Goodman In this program, Len Goodman, a judge on "Dancing with the Stars," discovers how the impact of the Titanic disaster is still felt a century after the ship sank. Goodman has his own connection to the ship. Before he was a dancer, he was a welder for Harland and Woolf. This was company that, from 1909 to 1912, built the Titanic in Belfast. Goodman worked for the same company 50 years later, at their yard in East London. To mark the centenary of the Titanic tragedy in 2012, Goodman explores the ship's 100-year legacy. He learns how for victims' families and for the survivors themselves, the sinking was just the beginning of the story. Generations later, those stories are still unfolding as Goodman meets the modern-day descendants to learn how, 100 years after it sank, the Titanic's legacy lives on. duration 56:46   STEREO TVPG

    Saving The Titanic She was the pride of the British Empire. A leading example of state-of-the-art engineering in a time of groundbreaking scientific and technological innovations on a global scale: the Titanic. Yet she sank in less than three hours after striking an iceberg on April 14, 1912. We all know about the many deaths in the icy waters, the fates of the rich and famous on the ship's maiden voyage and the dramas that played out in the Titanic's last hours. What is less known however is how a team of shipbuilders and engineers attempted to save the stricken vessel. Seeking to answer the question of what happened in the engine and boiler rooms after the collision, this program tells the story of the disaster from below deck, with the action taking place between the time the crew embark the Titanic at Southampton and the eventual sinking of the ship. Based upon eyewitness accounts, this is the story of nine central characters from the engineering crew as they work among the huge, coal-fired furnaces heating the boilers and massive dynamos whirring to satisfy the ship's demand for electricity. Their personal stories of bravery are recounted as the men fought courageously to hold back the power of the sea and keep the power systems running, even when they learned that all was lost. Most of these men died but their actions saved many lives. duration 56:46   STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: none)

    Everest: A Climb for Peace This program chronicles the journey of nine "peace climbers" from different faiths and cultures as they attempt to summit the tallest mountain in the world. Actor Orlando Bloom, also a United Nations Ambassador for UNICEF, narrates. Filmed on location in Nepal, Tibet, Israel, Palestine, Jordan, U.A.E. and the United States,the documentary focuses on Palestinian Ali Bushnaq and Israelis Dudu Yifrah and Micha Yaniv. Setting aside their differences, they come together to forge a path of teamwork and cooperation. This, however, is easier said than done. Each believes their respective nations, embroiled in a brutal war for years, lie on the right side of the conflict. A socially relevant film about peace, war and the human spirit, it features spectacular Everest footage, including a dramatic rescue near the summit. duration 57:34   STEREO TVG

    Nature [#3004] An Original DUCKumentary Working with "Hummingbirds" producer Ann Prum, Nature features another popular, beautiful and fascinating bird - the duck. The story follows a wood duck family and discovers how a male and female create a bond, migrate together across thousands of miles, nurture and protect a brood of chicks and come full circle as they head to their wintering grounds. But our stars are just one of some 150 species of ducks. They come in all shapes and sizes and abilities - some are dabblers popping in and out of the surface of a glass lake and others swim with powerful webbed feet underwater. They fly through the air on short, stubby wings, traveling in large, energy-efficient formations over thousands of miles. Some are noisy and gregarious, others shy and elusive. duration 56:46   STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: none)

    Edge of the Everglades: Big Cypress National Preserve Narrated by Peter Thomas (Nova), this program tells the story of the massive, mysterious marshland that continues to inspire deep passions for - and bitter debate about - one of the last great wild places in the world. On the western edge of the Everglades, beyond the sawgrass prairies of the famed River of Grass, lies the cypress-studded marshland known as the Big Cypress Swamp. The vast wet wilderness - a mosaic of marshes, cypress trees, pinelands and prairies once slated to house the world's largest jetport - now stands as a testament to compromise. In 1974, unlikely allies - conservationists and hunters - brokered a controversial deal which attempted to satisfy both environmental and recreational interests. duration 26:46   STEREO TVG
