    Tavis Smiley [#2976] 50th Anniversary of the March on Washington, part 1 of 3 Tavis kicks off programming in commemoration of the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington with historian Taylor Branch. The Pulitzer Prize-winning author of the three-part history of the civil rights movement and its most charismatic leader, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., sets the frame for the 1963 march. Tavis also chats with Rep. John Lewis. The only surviving speaker from the 1963 March on Washington, Lewis reflects on his involvement - as a then-23-year-old student leader - in what would become a turning point for the civil rights movement. duration 26:46   STEREO TVRE (Secondary audio: none)

    Focus On Europe [#3134] Bargain Prices for Castles In Ireland In many European countries, water is subject to tight regulations, and municipalities generally control the water supply. But in Spain, more and more communities have privatized their water utilities - much to the dismay of local residents. The details:
    POLAND: 3000 KILOMETERS TO THE EU - More and more Chechens are fleeing to Poland, but the country is ill-equipped to handle all the asylum-seekers. Poland can accommodate about 2,000 people in its refugee centers, but estimates say there are more than 10,000 Chechens in the country. About that same number have continued onwards to other EU countries. Some of these refugees say Poland never processed them as asylum seekers -- even though, under EU regulations, the first EU country of entry is required to do so.
    SERIES: EUROPE ON THE EDGE, PART 5 - FRANCE/GUADELOUPE: OF RUM AND OX CARTS - The French Overseas Department of Guadeloupe is a favorite vacation destination, and it's also home to the fabled white rum. But the cost of living on the island is high, and sugar cane is still harvested largely without machinery. Just as it has been for centuries, ox carts still transport the sugar cane harvest in Guadeloupe. Electricity is too expensive - as is most everything else. A chicken costs almost twice as much there as in Paris. Though there have been general strikes protesting conditions on the island, prices continue to rise. While France provides billions of euros in subsidies to Guadeloupe, many local residents still feel Paris is leaving them in the lurch.
    SPAIN: THE BATTLE OVER WATER - As a result of the economic crisis, many municipalities in Spain have sold their public water utilities to private companies. Now some local communities are finding out that the water supply networks are no longer being maintained properly and that water quality is on the decline. By the end of the year, about 60 percent of water utility management will be partly or entirely in private hands, making Spain the frontrunner in water privatization within Europe. Some experts are already calling it a "water bubble", and communities that are still trying to sell their water utilities are no longer able to obtain top prices. Now some communities are trying to regain public control over their water supply.
    IRELAND: CASTLES FOR SALE - Ireland is slowly emerging from the economic crisis. But even so, there are still some amazing real estate bargains to be had. In many parts of the country, magnificent castles and country estates are up for sale. Although prices for single-family homes are once again on the rise, millionaires can still find castles and villas going for a song. Buyers who can afford to think big have plenty to choose from, and some properties change hands for a tenth of what they were worth just a decade ago. The high-end real estate market is especially popular with affluent Americans.

    Carrier [#103] Super Secrets The ship's location and itinerary are classified. Details of how the nuclear reactor works are top secret. Many aspects of life on a nuclear aircraft carrier are hush-hush. Dating and sex aboard ship are strictly forbidden, but according to one sailor, with 5,000 people on board, relationships are "inevitable," resulting in a "don't ask, don't tell" policy that applies to relationships as well as sexual orientation. When the Nimitz pulls into Hong Kong for a four-day port call, a scandal dramatically alters the lives of two sailors. As the ship departs, the crew learns their itinerary has changed. The captain announces that they are heading for Korea, but the crew can't share this information with their families back home .. . because it's a secret. duration 56:46   STEREO TV14-S (Secondary audio: none)

    Carrier [#104] Squared Away Mentoring and camaraderie are what hold the ship together. But life on deployment is stressful for everyone aboard, and there can be considerable friction between enlisted personnel and their superiors. Port calls allow sailors to blow off steam, but they don't relieve all the pressure. In Guam, a young sailor coming to terms with his upbringing can't play by the rules and is forced out of the Navy. From Guam, the Nimitz sails through the Straits of Malacca, past Singapore to Kuala Lumpur, the last liberty call before the long haul to the Persian Gulf. duration 56:46   STEREO TV14 (Secondary audio: none)

    Faces of America [#102] Becoming American Episode Two explores the many journeys to becoming American that defined the "Century of Immigration" (1820s ? 1924) and transformed the United States from a sleepy agrarian country into a booming industrial power. Stephen Colbert's Irish great-great-grandfather escaped poverty and religious oppression in Limerick and never looked back, whereas Mario Batali's great-grandfather, who left the place where his family had lived for centuries, struggled to survive in the quartz mines of Montana. Her Majesty Queen Noor's Syrian great-grandfather quickly found his footing in New York's first Arab American community, while Kristi Yamaguchi's grandfather faced exclusionary laws and racially-defined barriers to citizenship for decades. The obstacles, short-cuts, tragedies and successes encountered or created by the guests' ancestors from around the world reveal the complexity of our shared history and identity as Americans. duration 56:46   STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: none)
