Thanksgivukkah - In a rare calendar convergence, the first full day of Hanukkah, the eight-day-Jewish festival of lights, falls on Thanksgiving Day this year. According to some calculations, that will not happen again for nearly 80,000 years. The American Jewish community has dubbed the convergence, "Thanksgivukkah." Kim Lawton looks at some of the ways people are celebrating, including holiday mash-up recipes and merchandise, such as turkey-shaped menorahs.

    Lincoln@Gettysburg In 1863 Abraham Lincoln proved himself a master of a new frontier - not on the battlefields of the Civil War, but in his "high-tech" command center: the War Department Telegraph Office, America's first "Situation Room." The "Internet" of the 19th century, the telegraph gave Lincoln new powers to reshape leadership and wield personal control across distant battlefields. The results of Lincoln's pioneering experiment in electronic leadership led to the rebirth of America on the fields of Gettysburg - both in the battle that turned the tide of the Civil War, and in a few words that recast the American ideal as a national creed: the Gettysburg Address. This program will unfold the greatest turning point in American history: the rebirth of a nation and the dawn of the information age. duration 55:16   STEREO TVPG

    The Gettysburg Story This Story begins in June 1863 with the start of the Gettysburg campaign in Virginia and follows the route of the Confederate and Union armies as they move north along the Blue Ridge mountains and across the Mason-Dixon line to meet on the rolling ground surrounding the small Pennsylvania town.
    The program is narrated by acclaimed actor Stephen Lang, and was produced with the cooperation of the 6000 acre Gettysburg National Military Park. Dynamic, evocative, breathtaking aerial and time lapse imagery highlight legendary places of the battlefield - Little Round Top, Devils Den, The Railroad Cut, Cemetery Ridge, the fields of Pickett's Charge - and visually tell the epic Gettysburg Story like no other film before.

    Moyers & Company [#246H] Zombie Politics and Casino Capitalism In his book Zombie Politics and Culture in the Age of Casino Capitalism, author and scholar Henry Giroux connects the dots, threading together ideas and experiences to prove his theory that our current system is informed by a "machinery of social and civil death" that chills "any vestige of a robust democracy." This week on Moyers &Company (check local listings), Giroux explains that such a machine turns people into zombies - "people who are basically so caught up with surviving that they become like the walking dead - they lose their sense of agency, they lose their homes, they lose their jobs." What's more, Giroux points out, the system that creates this vacuum has little to do with expanding the meaning and the substance of democracy itself. Under "casino capitalism," the goal is to get a quick return, taking advantage of a kind of logic in which the only thing that drives us is to put as much money as we can into a slot machine and hope we walk out with our wallets overflowing. A cultural and social critic of tireless energy and vast interests, Giroux holds the Global TV Network Chair in the English and Cultural Studies Department at McMaster University and is a distinguished visiting professor at Reyerson University, both schools in Canada. Described by Moyers as "torch bearer in the art and science of teaching," he has been an important contributor in a variety of academic fields, including cultural, youth and media studies. Also on the broadcast, Bill Moyers remembers a 2003 interview with Nobel-prize winning novelist Doris Lessing who passed away this week in London at the age of 94. And a look at "Birth of the Living Dead", a mesmerizing new documentary that examines the singular time in which the classic film "Night of the Living Dead" was shot - when civil unrest and violence gave the nation nightmares, and zombies were a metaphor for an American public troubled and distressed. duration 56:46   STEREO TVRE

    Washington Week with Gwen Ifill [#5321H] * The Senate went nuclear on Thursday. After threatening for months, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) orchestrated a new rule allowing for the confirmation of judicial nominees with a simple 51-vote majority. President Obama applauded the change calling out Republicans for stalling the confirmation of his nominees in what he called a "pattern of obstruction [that] just isn't normal." Republicans fumed that the rule change was a power grab designed to deflect the focus away from the rocky implementation of the president's Affordable Care Act. Susan Davis of USA Today will explain why Democrats decided to exercise the so-called "nuclear option" and how it is sure to strain already tenuous relations along both sides of the aisle in Congress.
    * Secretary of State John Kerry announced a tentative security deal with the Afghan government that will keep an undetermined number of US troops in Afghanistan through 2024. Afghan President Hamid Karzai announced that he supports the plan but will not sign the agreement until after next year's presidential elections. James Kitfield of National Journal will explain how Karzai's decision is playing into the delicate negotiations in Kabul to determine the size and scope of the long-term US mission in Afghanistan as America's longest war moves into its 13th year.
    * Martha Raddatz of ABC News will report on this week's debate on the Senate floor that pitted one Democrat against another and many lawmakers against Pentagon commanders over how the military should handle sexual assaults and rapes within the ranks.
    * During his 3 years in office President John F. Kennedy navigated a crisis that could have triggered a nuclear war with the former Soviet Union and laid the groundwork for the enactment of the Civil Rights Act. Michael Duffy of Time Magazine will look back on JFK's accomplishments during his 1000 days in office and the legacy that lives on 50 years after his assassination.

Prominent scholars Doris Kearns Goodwin and Orville Vernon Burton (The Age of Lincoln) describe how Lincoln's formative experiences as a young lawyer on Illinois' Eighth Judicial Circuit informed his views on the issues he would eventually face as president, including several cases involving slavery. duration 56:46   STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: DVI)

    Nova [#4023H] At The Edge of Space Between the blue sky above us and the infinite blackness of space lies a frontier that scientists have only just begun to investigate. In "At the Edge of Space," Nova takes viewers on aN exploration of the earth-space boundary zone that's home to some of nature's most puzzling and alluring phenomena: the shimmering aurora, streaking meteors, and fleeting flashes that shoot upwards from thunderclouds, known as sprites. Only discovered in 1989, sprites have eluded capture because they flicker into existence for a mere split-second -- 40 times faster than an eye blink. In a high-flying weather observation plane, we ride with scientists as they hunt for sprites and finally succeed in snaring them in 3D video, gaining vital clues to unraveling their mystery. Combining advanced video technology with sequences shot from the International Space Station, this film probes the enigmas of the boundary zone and brings viewers an intriguing new viewpoint on their planet. duration 55:16   STEREO TVPG

    Nova [#4024H] Asteroid: Doomsday Or Payday? The asteroid that exploded in the skies over Siberia injuring more than 1,000 and damaging buildings in six cities was a shocking reminder that Earth is a target in a cosmic shooting range. From the width of a football field to the size of a small city, the space rocks called asteroids have the potential to be killers: in a collision with Earth, they could set off deadly blast waves, raging fires and colossal tidal waves. But some audacious entrepreneurs look up at asteroids and see payday, not doomsday. That's because some asteroids are loaded with billions of dollars-worth of elements like iron, nickel and even platinum. While NASA plans an ambitious mission to return samples from a potentially hazardous asteroid, would-be asteroid miners are dreaming up their own program to scout for potentially profitable asteroids. Will asteroids turn out to be our economic salvation -- or instruments of extinction? duration 56:46   STEREO TVPG

    Comet Encounter Comets have fascinated, even terrified us for thousands of years. Traditionally seen as harbingers of doom, they can influence some people even to this day. For scientists though, comets are a great opportunity. This year a particularly massive chunk of ice and rock is hurtling our way, an object that will fascinate billions and should create the space show of the century. Right now Comet ISON, somewhere between one and 10 kilometers in diameter, is just beyond the orbit of Jupiter. As it races past us toward the sun it should develop a tail that will light up the skies brighter than a full moon. Then the comet will slingshot around the back of the sun and could emerge brighter than ever, treating the entire northern hemisphere to an unforgettable sight. It could even be visible in daylight. Simultaneously astronomers will be able to glean vital clues on the origins of our solar system. In this program, scientists all over the world follow a once-in-a-lifetime event and shoot breath-taking images of the sun-grazer comet, spewing its essence into the void. But there is jeopardy too; the comet could evaporate completely or the sun's massive gravity could tear it apart. If the latter happens it will produce a so-called "string of pearls," several much smaller comets arching right across the night sky. duration 56:46   STEREO TVPG
