    Living Courageously: The Spirit of Women This program celebrates the courage of women in times of crisis. It also features insights from actor and advocate Jane Seymour, and profiles 3 American women whose lives have been transformed by challenging - even devastating - circumstances. Alison Levine overcame a life-threatening heart condition to become an international mountain climber, lead the first US women's Everest expedition and head a foundation that helps Ugandan women find work as mountain guides. Once involved with drugs and alcohol, Francine Ward's near-fatal car accident transformed her; she earned her law degree and now coaches women on self-esteem issues and works with teenagers struggling with addiction. Photographer Sheila Hagler - the first member of her family to graduate from college - now works with at-risk teens in a rural Alabama community devastated by Hurricane Katrina. duration 26:46   STEREO TVG
  • 1:00 am
    Amish: American Experience This program explores the insular religious community whose intense faith and adherence to 400-year-old traditions have by turns captivated and baffled Americans for more than a century. It examines the beliefs, lifestyle and history of the Amish, as well as their complex relationship to mainstream American culture. Beautifully and lyrically photographed, the film is part history, part observational documentary that takes viewers into the private world of the Amish. duration 1:56:46   STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: DVI)

    Religion & Ethics NewsWeekly [#1708] CATHOLIC IDENTITY AT CATHOLIC COLLEGES - How should the country's 270 Catholic colleges and universities deal with social changes the Church opposes - gay rights and gay marriage, for instance? As Bob Faw reports, Georgetown University in Washington celebrates its Jesuit traditions of acceptance and free speech. At the conservative end of the spectrum, Jim Towey, president of Ave Maria University in Florida, says academic freedom must have limits.
    THE PAINFUL PILGRIMAGE OF CHRISTIAN WIMAN - Poet, seeker and victim, Christian Wiman talks with Judy Valente about his spiritual journey and the central importance of poetry, new metaphors and all the arts to experiencing, for him, the "glimmers of God." The former editor of Poetry magazine is teaching this year at the Yale Divinity School and Yale's Institute of Sacred Music. Married, with two young daughters, Wiman describes his "glimpses" of the holy at the same time that he endures an incurable cancer.

    Nature [#3003B] Animal Odd Couples A tiger cub with no mother in sight. A baby hippo. An abandoned meerkat pup. Without nurturing, these infants face certain death. Enter stories of the most unlikely cross-species relationships imaginable: a chimp bottle-feeding a tiger cub; a giant tortoise snuggling a baby hippo; a black crow parenting a meerkat. Aberrations of nature? Instincts gone awry? Does this kind of bonding form only when animals are removed from their natural environments? Or are they evidence of a broad array of emotions among animals? This film will look at these remarkable relationships firsthand, and through caregivers, biologists and animal behaviorists, explore what they suggest about the nature of animal emotions. duration 1:28:29   SRND51 TVPG (Secondary audio: DVI)
  • MORNING
  • 6:00 am
    African Americans: Many Rivers to Cross [#101] The Black Atlantic (1500-1800) The Black Atlantic explores the truly global experiences that created the African American people. Beginning a full century before the first documented '20-and-odd' slaves arrived at Jamestown, Virginia, the episode portrays the earliest Africans, both slave and free, who arrived on these shores. But the Trans-Atlantic slave trade would soon become a vast empire connecting three continents. Through stories of individuals caught in its web, like a ten-year-old girl named Priscilla who was transported from Sierra Leone to South Carolina in the mid-18th century, we trace the emergence of plantation slavery in the American South. The late 18th century saw a global explosion of freedom movements, and The Black Atlantic examines what that Era of Revolutions-American, French and Haitian-would mean for African Americans, and for slavery in America. duration 56:46   STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: none)

    Roadtrip Nation [#1007H] Be Well-Rounded In New York City, the team meets with Mariette DiChristina, Editor-in-Chief of Scientific American, who was able to combine her interests in writing, science, and art into a meaningful career. Mariette urges the Roadtrippers to incorporate their passions into their work - even if they face criticism from others. Moving north, the Roadtrippers arrange a visit with Vicki Smith, a game designer at Vicarious Visions. Vicki shares her circuitous route to game design, explaining that she initially abandoned her own dreams in favor of following her parents' expectations. In offering advice to the Roadtrippers, she stresses the importance of being well-rounded, and educating oneself in a wide range of disciplines - even if they don't particularly interest you. That way, you have an arsenal of knowledge to inform the work you do. duration 26:46   STEREO TVPG
