    Indians Like Us A sincere admiration of Native culture gives way to this charming documentary about a small group of French citizens-called "Savy Western"-who share a passion for everything Native American. Every weekend, they dress in Native regalia and make appearances at various village fairs alongside their countrymen in France. However, in order to fulfill their dream, they must travel to the United States and meet "real Indians." Together, they finally manage a two-week drive across the Midwest and discover that the reality of contemporary Native Americans is quite different from their portrayed envisioning. Filled with unforeseen emotion, this road movie presents great encounters on both sides. duration 59:00   STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: none)

    Religion & Ethics NewsWeekly [#1713] METHODIST GAY MARRIAGE CONTROVERSY - The issue of same-sex marriage continues to roil the United Methodist Church, the nation's second-largest Protestant denomination. Last week, a Methodist court convicted a Pennsylvania pastor of violating church law after he officiated at a gay wedding. He will be defrocked ifhe does not withdraw his support for same-sex marriage in 30 days. And other church trials on the issue are still ahead. Betty Rollin speaks with Rev. Tom Ogletree, a United Methodist scholar and former Dean of the Yale Divinity School and the Drew Divinity School, in New Jersey, who faces a possible trial for officiating at the marriage of his gay son. Rev. Ogletree says there is "no concept of homosexuality or sexual orientation at all" in scripture. But Rev. Rob Renfroe of the Woodland United Methodist Church, near Houston, is among Methodists who insist "there is not any passage in scripture that is condoning or accepting of that practice." (Originally aired on September 20, 2013)
    TAYLOR BRANCH ON 1963 - Last week the nation marked the 50th anniversary of the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. Pulitzer Prize-winning author Taylor Branch says that event was among several major milestones in 1963that played a key role in struggle for civil rights. "1963 is without a doubt the breakthrough pivotal year" for Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. and the civil rights movement, says Branch, whose latest book is called The King Years. Managing editor Kim Lawton talks with Branch about some of those events and the central role churches played in all of them.(Originally aired on June 21, 2013)

    Frontline [#3017] Endgame: AIDS In Black America Every 10 minutes, someone in the U.S. contracts HIV. Half are black. Thirty years after the discovery of the AIDS virus among gay white men, nearly half of the one million people in the United States infected with HIV are black men, women and children. "If Black America was a country unto itself, it would have the 16th worst epidemic in the world," says Phill Wilson, head of the Black AIDS Institute. "Endgame: AIDS in Black America" is an exploration of one of the country's most urgent, preventable health crises. The film traces the history of the epidemic through the experiences of extraordinary individuals who tell their stories. People like Nel, a 63-year-old grandmother, who married a deacon in her church and later found an HIV diagnosis tucked into his Bible; Tom and Keith, who call themselves "Bornies," survivors who were children born with the virus in the early 1990s; and Jovante, a high school football player who didn't realize what HIV meant until it was too late. From Magic Johnson to civil rights pioneer Julian Bond, from pastors to health workers, people on the front lines tell moving stories of the battle to contain the spread of the virus, and the opportunity to finally turn the tide of the epidemic. Written, produced an directed by Renata Simone, the producer of the 2006 Frontline series, "The Age of AIDS." duration 1:56:46   STEREO TVRE (Secondary audio: none)

    African Americans: Many Rivers to Cross [#106B] A More Perfect Union (1968-2013) After 1968, African Americans set out to build a bright new future on the foundation of the civil rights movement's victories, but a growing class disparity threatened to split the black community in two. As hundreds of African Americans won political office across the country and the black middle class made unprecedented progress, larger economic and political forces isolated the black urban poor in the inner cities, vulnerable to new social ills and an epidemic of incarceration. Yet African Americans of all backgrounds came together to support Illinois Senator Barack Obama in his historic campaign for the presidency of the United States. When he won in 2008, many hoped that America had finally transcended race and racism. By the time of his second victory, it was clear that many issues, including true racial equality, remain to be resolved. Now we ask: How will African Americans help redefine the United States in the years to come? duration 1:29:18   STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: DVI)

    • KQED Plus OTA ? Optimistically planned maintenance: Fri 12/05 mid-morning

      (DT54.1 thru 54.5) Assuming that the weather and road conditions permit, we plan to do a bit of maintenance on our KQEH transmitter the morning of Friday 12/05… hopefully 10am-11am-ish, but could be a bit later. Most of the work should not affect the outgoing signal, but there will need to be a cable swap […]

      Another station needs to do maintenance on its equipment on the tower on Monument Peak, requiring that we switch our DT54 Over the Air signal from the main antenna to the auxiliary when the work starts, then back to the main antenna at the conclusion. These switches should cause momentary outages only, and most receivers […]
