    European Journal [#3138] Discovery of a Subterranean Hideout from the Nazis BOSNIA: HOW ETHNIC DIVISION IS CRIPPLING BUSINESS - Rival ethnic groups in Bosnia refusing to agree on agricultural regulations have left many farmers there unable to sell their products. For years, Croatia has been Bosnia and Herzegovina's most important trading partner, particularly in the meat and dairy industries. Now Bosnian companies are facing bankruptcy, as rival ethnic groups refuse to co-operate with authorities. The country does not even have a department of agriculture. That's causing problems with the EU, which insists on co-operating solely on the national, rather than regional level.
    UKRAINE: DISCOVERY OF A SUBTERRANEAN HIDEOUT - An American spelunker has stumbled upon a very special cave in Ukraine. During the Second World War, two Jewish families used it to hide from the Nazis for a year and a half. The two families lived in the caverns - without sunlight, and in constant fear of discovery by the Nazis - for exactly 511 days. The families left the region after the war, taking their story with them. Decades later, the American caver discovered their refuge. And he was able to discover more about this extraordinary tale of survival from the survivors' descendants.
    SWEDEN: THE LAST OF THE LANTHANDEL - Going shopping in Sweden's far-flung rural areas can mean hours on the road. The Lanthandel - little general stores - have traditionally met country-dwellers' basic needs. But over the past decade, a good third of these small businesses have closed up shop. Now EU subsidies are planned to help counter this trend. The Lanthandel, or general store, is most often the center of community life, in many ways taking the place of the village pub. It sells fresh produce, household goods and tools. It serves as a post office and even a pharmacy. But as young people migrate to the cities in search of jobs, their clienteles are dwindling. EU subsidies and fiber optic cables, however, are bringing many of these little shops into the modern age. Now, customers can even do their banking or submit building applications at the Lanthandel.
    FRANCE: COMBATING JELLYFISH - The ecology of the Mediterranean is changing rapidly. Vast blooms of jellyfish are clogging the coastlines. Severe overfishing has led to favorable breeding conditions for these marine creatures. The Mediterranean coasts of Spain, Italy and France are bracing for invasions of jellies. The tourist hub of Cannes has deployed floating yellow booms off its beaches much like the ones used to contain oil spills. Anti-jellyfish nets are an added precaution. The UN Food and Agriculture Organization has another idea: simply put the jellyfish on the menu.

    Frontline [#3020] Dropout Nation What does it take to save a student? Every year, hundreds of thousands of teenagers in the United States quit high school without diplomas -- an epidemic so out of control that nobody knows the exact number. What is clear is that massive dropout rates cripple individual career prospects and cloud the country's future. At Houston's Sharpstown High, once a notorious "dropout factory," a high-stakes experiment is under way to rescue students from the edge. Frontline spent a semester immersed in Sharpstown to produce a portrait of four students in crisis and the teachers, counselors and principal waging a daily, personal struggle to get them to graduation. A troubling and inspiring journey through the maze of an inner-city high school, "Dropout Nation" investigates the causes, challenges and potential solutions of a national emergency. duration 1:56:46   STEREO TVRE (Secondary audio: none)

    Is School Enough? This program is a transmedia project that illuminates how young people are leveraging digital media to learn, explore interests, connect with others and change the world around them. Designed for parents and educators, the program and destination website acknowledge the persistent generation gap in how many adults view online participation, and demonstrates the full range of opportunities that digital practices can afford today's learners. Is School Enough? highlights stories of students employing cutting-edge technology to integrate into a new culture following emigration; tap into a Harry Potter-based social network to build public awareness about difficult social issues; reignite a love for reading and writing via an online Twilight fan fiction community, and more. Rather than focusing on the potential risks of kids' digital use, the program empowers parents and educators to seize the benefits that today's new media offer their children: self- realization based on interests, collective problem- solving through shared purpose, and greater civic and social engagement. Most importantly, it shows how caring adults can transform and energize schools, communities and homes by encouraging -- and enabling -- digital literacy. duration 56:46   STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: none)

    • KQET (DT25) Over the Air: Wed 8/27

      We are aware of the break-up issues for our DT25 Over the Air signal in the Monterey/Salinas area. This will also affect viewers of any cable or satellite signal provider using that transmitter as their source. Engineers are working on the problem.

      (DT25.1, 25.2, 25.3) KQET DT25 was off the air for a portion of Sunday morning, due to the transmitter taking a power hit. The signal has been restored.
