    Still on the Road Twelve actors travel across 28 US cities on a seven month journey to bring classical theater to America. The Acting Company, a classical touring ensemble founded by John Houseman and Margot Harley, started with members of the first graduating class of the drama division of the Julliard School. Kevin Kline recalls Houseman's motivation being, "We couldn't just let them go out there and do garbage." In the Company's 37th season, twelve actors spend seven months on a cramped bus, lose a leading man, play 71 roles, and learn to work in spaces that won't hold their set. Throughout, they reconnect with their passion for performing, receive a great review in the New York Times, and teach high school and college students a new way to look at Shakespeare. As we follow the actors on tour and watch insightful conversations with Kevin Kline, Rainn Wilson and Harriet Harris, we learn that with the exception of Xbox and Wi-Fi on the bus, not much has changed - and that is just as it should be. duration 56:46   STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: none)

    Religion & Ethics NewsWeekly [#1650] BRIDE TRAFFICKING - In India one of the consequences of the widespread introduction of sonograms and the age-old preference for male children has been the frequent aborting of female fetuses. In some regions there are as few as 650 female births for every 1000 males. As Fred de Sam Lazaro reports this has resulted in a growing shortage of women and the trafficking of women to fill the need for Indian brides.
    BUILD-ON MOVEMENT - Bob Faw reports on Build-On, founded by Jim Ziolkowski, a devout Catholic who left a career in corporate finance in 1993 to live what he says is the social justice aspect of his Catholic tradition. Build-On, he claims, breaks the inner-city cycle of poverty, illiteracy and low expectations through service and education and is now in 72 public schools nationwide, enrolling 4000 students and building schools in 6 countries.

    Washington Week with Gwen Ifill [#5307H] * Day-long clashes between Egypt's military and supporters of ousted President Mohamed Morsi have left hundreds dead in Cairo. Despite the escalating violence, the Muslim Brotherhood has vowed to continue its protests over the army's overthrow of the democratically-elected Morsi in July. Today President Obama strongly condemned the deadly violence precipitated by the Egyptian military and announced that the US is canceling joint military exercises planned for later this month. But he stopped short of cutting off $1.5 billion in US financial aid to the longtime Mideast ally. Could that be something the White House is considering? Indira Lakshmanan of Bloomberg News will report on the Obama Administration's attempt to strike a balance between supporting a democratic transition and ensuring stability in Egypt. < br />* Attorney General Eric Holder is changing the way Federal prosecutors handle drug crimes that come with mandatory, minimum sentences. Holder says it will help alleviate some of the prison overcrowding around the country and divert millions of taxpayer dollars into more effective crime-fighting programs. Pete Williams of NBC News will explain why the new directive has attracted bipartisan support. Plus why a ruling by a federal judge to limit the New York Police Department's "stop and frisk" program is getting pushback from both Mayor Michael Bloomberg and the police union.
    * While headlines continue to be written about the controversy surrounding two proposed movies about Hillary Clinton and speculation about a possible 2016 presidential run, Vice President Joe Biden has been quietly working on his own plan to seek the 2016 Democratic presidential nomination. Jeff Zeleny of ABC News will look at the political ambitions, strengths and weaknesses of these two leading contenders and long-time friends.

    THIS WEEK in Northern California [#2440H] August 16, 2013 Guest Host: Thuy Vu.
    News Panel:
    HILLARY CLINTON'S NEXT MOVE - Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton drew national attention when she delivered her first major domestic policy speech in San Francisco at the American Bar Association's convention on Monday. Clinton's address calling for greater protection of voting rights was widely seen as the kickoff of a 2016 presidential run. < br />FEDERAL SENTENCING REFORM - US Attorney General Eric Holder announced a major shift in federal sentencing policies in a speech in San Francisco. Meanwhile, the state of California makes plans to reduce its prison population by nearly 10,000 even as Gov. Jerry Brown appeals again to the US Supreme Court to intervene. Also in California, a prisoner-led hunger strike protesting conditions in isolation units stretches into its 6th week.
    SHASTA DAM EXPANSION - A controversial $1 billion plan to add as much as 18 feet to the height of Shasta Dam has environmentalists, Native Americans, and agricultural interests at odds. Supporters say it would be a major boost to California's water supply but it would inundate sites sacred to the Winnemem Wintu and require the relocation of roads and property owners near Shasta Lake.
    Guests: Carla Marinucci, San Francisco Chronicle; Michael Montgomery, KQED News and Center for Investigative Reporting; Craig Miller, KQED Science Editor.
    TOM STEYER INTERVIEW - KQED's Scott Shafer talks with San Francisco billionaire and green energy advocate Tom Steyer. A former hedge fund manager and founder of Farallon Capital Management, Steyer was the driving force behind last fall's Proposition 39. He's now using his resources to influence the Obama administration's climate change policy and to block the Keystone XL pipeline. A Democrat, Steyer recently supported BART workers at a rally and is considered a potential gubernatorial candidate for California.

    Moyers & Company [#232H] How People Power Generates Change With our democracy threatened by plutocrats and the politicians in their pockets more than ever, the antidote to organized money is organized people. It takes time and effort, but across the country, grass roots democracy is growing. Individuals are banding together, organizing toward common goals and demanding change - and often delivering it. On this encore broadcast, Bill sits with three organizers leading the way.
    Marshall Ganz is a social movement legend who dropped out of Harvard to become a volunteer during Mississippi's Freedom Summer of 1964. He then joined forces with Cesar Chavez of the United Farmworkers, protecting workers who picked crops for pennies in California's fields and orchards. Ganz also had a pivotal role organizing students and volunteers for Barack Obama's historic 2008 presidential campaign. Now 70, he's still organizing across the United States and the Middle East, and back at Harvard, teaching students from around the world about what it takes to beat Goliath.
    Later on the broadcast, economic equality advocates Rachel LaForest, executive director of Right to the City, and Madeline Janis, co-founder and national policy director of Los Angeles Alliance for a New Economy, discuss with Bill how social action can change both policy and lives. Janis led the fight for a living wage in Los Angeles; LaForest fights for fair and affordable housing across the country.

    Fixing Juvie Justice America's reliance on juvenile incarceration is the highest among the world's developing nations by an astonishing margin. It has costly implications, both financially and for the future of the youth at risk. It costs approximately $88,000 per year to send a kid to juvenile incarceration and nearly 70% of them are re-arrested after being released. Could there be an alternative to this broken system of kids cycling in and out of the grasp of the juvenile justice system? Now in an experiment, a group of innovators in Baltimore, on a quest to fix the broken system, turn to an island on the other side of the world for a possible solution. Could the restorative justice principles of the Maori people in New Zealand be applied to the mean streets of the United States? duration 56:46   SRND51 TVPG

    Nature [#2810H] Outback Pelicans The Australian outback is the driest place on the driest inhabited continent on the planet. It is a place you might expect to see kangaroos but certainly not waterbirds. Yet once every 10 years, rains flood into dried-up river beds and head inland to create the largest lake in Australia, and 100,000 pelicans -- a third of all the pelicans in Australia -- arrive for the event. Leaving their homes on coasts and harbors, they come to feed on fish washed in on the floods and on billions of brine shrimp and other crustaceans which hatch and grow to adulthood in a few days in water twice as salty as the Dead Sea. The pelicans have come home to court and raise as many families as possible before the water and the food disappear once more. duration 55:15   SRND51 TVG (Secondary audio: DVI)

    Lafayette: The Lost Hero "Lafayette: The Lost Hero" tells the story of the Marquis de Lafayette and his quest to bring democracy to America and France, through the eyes of Sabine Renault Sabloniere, a 21st century descendant. The film traces the life and legend of this intriguing, neglected, and controversial figure, who left France at the age of 19 and fought courageously for the independence of the United States. He returns to France, risking his life to help start the French Revolution and then struggles in vain to bring democracy to his country by peaceful means. Years later, after being imprisoned for bringing freedom movements to Europe, he returns, triumphantly, for the 50th anniversary of the American revolution -- this country's first great patriotic celebration. duration 56:46   STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: none)

    America Reframed [#118] Brother Outsider: The Life of Bayard Rustin During his 60-year career as an activist, organizer and "troublemaker, " Bayard Rustin formulated many of the strategies that propelled the American civil rights movement. His passionate belief in Gandhi' s philosophy of nonviolence drew Martin Luther King Jr. and other leaders to him in the 1940's and 50's; his practice of those beliefs drew the attention of the FBI and police. But his open homosexuality forced him to remain in the background, marking him again and again as a "brother outsider." Brother Outsider combines rare archival footage - some of it never before broadcast in the U.S. - with provocative interviews to illuminate the life and work of a forgotten prophet of social change. duration 1:50:44   STEREO (Secondary audio: none)
