    Focus On Europe [#3144] Russia's Richest Billionaire Putin Denies Wealth How wealthy should heads of state be? The general consensus is that they shouldn't be allowed to amass vast fortunes - which is why most politicians don't drive fancy cars or buy luxury properties. But rumors about Russian President Putin are circulating: He's now reportedly the wealthiest man in Russia. The details:
    RUSSIA: PUTIN'S WEALTH - Putin has always maintained he wants to put an end to corruption and graft in Russia. But allegations about his own luxury lifestyle have gathered momentum in recent years. Putin has reportedly amassed $40 billion, making him the wealthiest man in Russia. He owns a property worth $1 billion alone on the Black Sea coast near Sotchi, which is set to host the Winter Olympics in 2014. Putin himself insists he is a man of modest means and denies the rumors of his astonishing wealth.
    TURKEY/GREECE: RETURN TO GOKCEADA - Imroz was an island in the Aegean Sea that belonged to Greece - until the Treaty of Lausanne officially changed its name to Gokceada and it became Turkish. Its villages went to rack and ruin and Turkey is now trying to get Greek families to return. Massive scale persecution against the local Greek population started in the early 1960s and in 1970, the name Imroz was officially changed to Gokceada. Now there's been a government decision to reopen a Greek minority school there. The trouble is, the classrooms are empty.
    SLOVAKIA: GETTING LUCKY AND FIGHTING TAX FRAUD - The Slovakian finance minister has come up with a novel way of boosting VAT revenue: the public can enter a free lottery every time they pay value-added tax. The scheme has made it impossible for retailers to embezzle money - because customers now insist on sales receipts even when all they're doing is buying bread rolls. It's an efficient way of tackling tax fraud - and the first lucky winner has already scooped 10,000 euros.
    DENMARK: RETTUNG AM ORESUND - One of the only happy ends in World War II history: 70 years ago this month, almost 8000 Jews managed to escape Nazi-occupied Denmark by setting sail to neighboring Sweden. Across a period of several days, Danish fishermen transported thousands of refugees from Denmark to Sweden, across the Oresund strait. Almost the entire Jewish population of Denmark managed to escape. The rescue was made possible by a German diplomat who warned the Jewish community to leave. A few of them returned to the scene of their escape for the first time this year.
    POLAND: GRAVITY ANOMALY - A remote road rest area in Poland has become host to a unique phenomenon: bottles and cars rolling up hill instead of downhill. The earth's gravitational pull appears to have been simply suspended at this location. Bottles start to roll uphill of their own accord - but why? There are various theories being bandied about to explain this "gravity anomaly". Some observers believe it is the work of witches and trolls. There are also, however, rather simple physical explanations for the phenomenon, such as subterranean water veins.

    Fly Boys: Western Pennsylvania's Tuskegee Airmen This documentary tells the story of struggle and the ultimate triumph of the brave African-American soldiers who served their country during World War II. The film chronicles the "Tuskegee Airmen" program, a controversial military initiative designed to measure African-Americans' competence for flying the engines of war. It features the stories of the more than 40 aviators from western Pennsylvania, including the pilots, navigators and bombardiers who flew fighter and bomber planes during the war, as well as the maintenance and support staff, instructors and personnel who kept the planes in the air. duration 57:00   STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: Spanish)
  • MORNING
  • 6:00 am
    Company of Heroes Easy Company, the 2nd Battalion of the 506th Parachute Infantry Regiment of the 101st Airborne Division, widely known as the "Screaming Eagles," remains one of the most revered combat units in US military history. The Army company's legendary exploits in World War II inspired Stephen Ambrose's book, Band of Brothers, and the Emmy-winning HBO miniseries of the same name. Following two years of hard training, the soldiers of Easy Company parachuted into Normandy on D-Day and, later, into Holland for Operation Market Garden. They fought their way through Belgium, France and Germany, survived overwhelming odds, liberated concentration camps, and drank a victory toast in April 1945 at Hitler's hideout in the Alps.
    In 2009, 20 of the few remaining survivors from Easy Company shared their rarely told stories of sacrifice and courage for Marcus Brotherton's oral-history book project, We Who Are Alive and Remain: Untold Stories From the Band of Brothers. In this documentary, those same veterans - along with the families of three deceased others - recount the horrors and the victories, the bonds they made, the tears and blood they shed, and the friends they lost.
