    America Reframed [#121] Flying: Confessions of a Free Woman| Part 1 In this two part documentary, master storyteller Jennifer Fox lays bare her own turbulent life to penetrate what it means to be a free woman today. As her drama of work and relationships unfolds over four years, our protagonist travels to over seventeen countries to understand how diverse women define their lives when there is no map. Employing an ingenious new camera technique, called "passing the camera", Fox creates a documentary language that mirrors the special way women communicate. Over intimate conversations around kitchen tables from South Africa to Russia, India and Pakistan, she initiates a groundbreaking dialogue among women, illuminating universal concerns across race, class and nationality. duration 2:26:46   STEREO (Secondary audio: none)

It intertwines their stories with commentary from national experts who examine the policies and practices that favor sprawl development over revitalizing existing, older communities. Features: Tom Moeller, City Manager, Madeira, OH; Richard Ellison, Mayor, Elmwood Place, OH; Members of the First Suburbs Consortium of Ohio; Myron Orfield, Bruce Katz, Dr. Carla Chifos and Kim Gibson.

    Moyers & Company [#233H] America's Gilded Capital Mark Leibovich covers Washington, DC, as chief national correspondent for The New York Times Magazine - and has written about the city's bipartisan lust for power, cash and notoriety in a book that everyone who's anyone in our nation's capital is talking about. The title is This Town, and if you want to know what the insiders of Washington are doing to the very notion of government of, by, and for the people, you have to read it, too. This is the story of how Washington became an occupied city, its hold on reality distorted by greed and ambition; it pulls no punches and names names, revealing the movers and shakers and the deals they make, all in the name of crony capitalism. This week, Mark Leibovich joins Bill to reveal what he has learned about a city where money rules and status is determined by who you know and what they can do for you. duration 56:46   STEREO TVRE

    Washington Week with Gwen Ifill [#5308H] President Obama returned from his New England vacation to a myriad of overseas and national security issues.
    In Egypt, the interim government continues its crackdown on the Muslim Brotherhood amidst the release of former President Hosni Mubarak from prison. He still faces a retrial in connection with the deaths of protestors during the Egyptian uprisings of 2011 that led to his ouster from office. How might these latest developments play as the Obama administration wrestles with whether to cut aid to the country due to the recent violence?
    In Syria, fresh reports of a chemical gas attack against civilians, allegedly by forces loyal to President Bashar al-Assad, have again put the spotlight on whether the US should intervene further.
    And a new declassified report this week revealed the National Security Agency did in fact illegally collect tens of thousands of emails from Americans as part of its national surveillance program. Will the program come under further scrutiny when Congress returns from recess next month?
    The impact of all three stories and the US government reaction is our focus this week as Gwen is joined by Tom Gjelten of NPR and Alexis Simendinger of Real Clear Politics. In addition, Michael Fletcher of The Washington Post, in a special feature for Smithsonian Magazine, takes a look back at the 1963 March on Washington. He'll recount the stories of participants and the lessons of that time fifty years ago.

    THIS WEEK in Northern California [#2444H] August 23, 2013 OAKLAND TRIES TO EVEN THE ODDS FOR AFRICAN AMERICAN BOYS
    In a collaboration between KQED and the San Francisco Chronicle series Even Odds, we offer an in-depth look at the daunting challenges faced by African American males in Oakland, and the city's attempt to address them. 3 years ago, the Oakland Unified School District faced an alarming statistic - more than half of its African American boys would not graduate. The troubling dropout rate had many factors at play: poverty, crime, high suspension rates and rising absenteeism. The district responded by opening the Office of African American Male Achievement. Its mission is to improve academic outcomes for black boys by pairing them with black men. While race-based, community mentorship is not new, for a public school system it was controversial. The early results are encouraging, but it remains to be seen whether this novel approach will actually work. The program begins with a documentary segment, followed by a panel discussion. Host: Joshua Johnson.
    Guests: Jill Tucker, San Francisco Chronicle; Tiago Robinson, Oakland High School; Pedro Noguera, New York University.
