    Summer Hill From the late 19th century until the civil rights movement, the black people of Cartersville, Georgia (near Atlanta) lived exclusively in the Summer Hill section of town. The documentary SUMMER HILL is a compelling look at the influence of one small, tightly knit community - its school, churches and civic leaders - on its residents. Despite poverty, racism and limited opportunity, Summer Hill - and its segregated school - flourished for four generations. Summer Hill produced Georgia's first black Supreme Court justice; a famous Motown songwriter; teachers, ministers, doctors, lawyers and other professionals; and many others who have made major contributions to their hometown and to society. In their own words, the people of Summer Hill tell the empowering story of their community, and reveal its lasting legacy of hope. duration 26:46   STEREO TVG

    Life On Fire [#104] Phoenix Temple Around the Masaya Volcano in Nicaragua, life has struggled for thousands of years to re-emerge from the ashes. Underground, vampire and other bat species have colonized the miles of tunnels created by hot flowing magma. In the crater, parakeets and vultures have made nests on cliffs exposed to toxic gases. On the flanks of this still active mountain, the vegetation has been burnt away by lava flows leaving barren stretches that are recolonized over hundreds of years. At the foot of the volcano, fields, pastures and towns have grown over the oldest lava flows. In this harsh environment, nature struggles to conquer ash and lava before the next eruption erases its efforts ... and the phoenix must rise again. duration 56:46   STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: none)
