Also examined are the challenges of interfaith marriage, the younger generation's struggle to reconcile their families' traditional expectations with the desire to forge their own identity, and the difficulties in maintaining one's cultural and religious heritage in a largely Judeo-Christian environment. Cinema verite- style scenes capture a variety of religious ceremonies, festivals, rituals and sacred dance: a Hindu holiday celebrating Ganesha's birthday; a service recounting the great Hindu epic, the Ramayana, at a temple in Maryland; a royal Hindu wedding; and the 300th anniversary celebration of the Guru Granth Sahib, the Sikh scriptures.

    Liberty Or Death Patrick Henry's impassioned plea at the second Virginia Convention of 1775, "Give me liberty or give me death," defined the American Revolution. This docu-drama captures this seminal moment in American history by balancing experts' commentary on the events preceding the second Virginia Convention with dramatic re-enactments of the historic moments that followed. Actors portraying founding fathers George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Patrick Henry and other delegates bring the convention to life as another character, convention clerk John Tazwell, narrates the unfolding action. Historians also explain the lasting significance of the convention and Henry's stirring speech. duration 56:46   STEREO TVG

    Lafayette: The Lost Hero "Lafayette: The Lost Hero" tells the story of the Marquis de Lafayette and his quest to bring democracy to America and France, through the eyes of Sabine Renault Sabloniere, a 21st century descendant. The film traces the life and legend of this intriguing, neglected, and controversial figure, who left France at the age of 19 and fought courageously for the independence of the United States. He returns to France, risking his life to help start the French Revolution and then struggles in vain to bring democracy to his country by peaceful means. Years later, after being imprisoned for bringing freedom movements to Europe, he returns, triumphantly, for the 50th anniversary of the American revolution -- this country's first great patriotic celebration. duration 56:46   STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: none)

And many who have made the town work for them. Reporting on Washington, DC, as chief national correspondent for The New York Times Magazine, Leibovich has written about the city's bipartisan lust for power, cash and notoriety. In his new book, This Town, he shares what the insiders of Washington are doing to the very notion of government of, by, and for the people, and details how Washington became an occupied city, its hold on reality distorted by greed and ambition. He pulls no punches and names names, revealing the movers and shakers and the deals they make, all in the name of crony capitalism.

President Obama spoke out this week about income inequality and the need to increase the Federal minimum wage calling the growing gap between the rich and poor "a fundamental threat to the American dream." David Wessel of The Wall Street Journal will have analysis of the latest economic indicators and explain what they reveal about the stability of the US recovery.
    * After 2 months of various technical failures, the Obama administration unveiled an overhauled healthcare website on December 1. That's led to a surge in enrollments this week, but some problems persist. Jackie Calmes of The New York Times will report on President Obama's continuing push to sell the benefits of the Affordable Care Act for uninsured Americans, especially young adults, who seem resistant to buying health insurance.

But the ruling also opens the door for dramatically reduced pension payments to employees and retirees. Michael Fletcher of The Washington Post will explain why the Detroit decision could reverberate far beyond Michigan and impact public employee pensions in other cities around the country.

    Employees Push for Living Wage
    Fast-food workers walked off the job in cities across the country and here in the Bay Area on Thursday, pushing for higher wages. As a nationwide movement to raise the minimum wage gains support from lawmakers and President Obama, critics of a wage hike say it would stifle business, kill jobs, inflate prices and hurt the very people it's intended to help.

    'Extreme by Design'
    The San Francisco Bay Area has long been known as an incubator of innovation. In some ways, the epicenter of that creativity is the Institute of Design at Stanford University. The "d.school" nurtures "outside the box thinking" in hopes of tackling some of the world's toughest problems. A new documentary film, "Extreme by Design," follows several Stanford graduate students as they attempt to create life-changing products for developing countries. Their approach, known as design thinking, challenges them to tackle problems like infant pneumonia deaths in Bangladesh and to build products with "extreme affordability." The film airs on KQED 9 on Wednesday, December 11 at 10 p.m.

    Ralph King: Co-Director, "Extreme by Design"

Free from their wheelchairs on a reef 60 feet below the surface of the sea,they travel with no worry of high curbs or large steps getting in the way. This amazing experiment is chronicled by Johns Hopkins doctors and may change the lives of anyone with paralysis.
    The medical research team, lead by Dr.Adam Kaplin, Psychiatrist at Johns Hopkins, and Dr. Daniel Becker, Neurologist at Kennedy Krieger Institute, discover amazing results from the experience, results that could forever change the way paralysis is treated and the way those in wheelchairs live their lives. "We saw dramatic changes in a matter of days in people with spinal cord injury who went scuba diving," Becker says. "This is just a pilot study, but to see such a restoration of neurological function and significant improvement in PTSD symptoms over such a short period of time was unprecedented."

    Papa Boss Ed Hagedorn has transformed himself from a powerful gangster to a leading environmental warrior, the kind that gains awards and admirers, as well as dangerous enemies. What makes a successful businessman depart from his old lawless ways into fighting miners, illegal fishermen, loggers and gamblers when he himself was one of them in his recent past? When he became the Mayor of Puerto Princesa in 1992, a city of 250,000 inhabitants, surrounded by islands and jungles, the largest territory a city mayor has control of in the Philippines, he vowed to change his life as well as the city, in gratitude to his voters. Now in his fourth consecutive term as mayor, he has followed up on his word. What was once a filthy, neglected town surrounded by corruption and a chain of thriving mines eating away at Puerto Princesa's natural resources, is now one of the cleanest and greenest cities in Asia. The locals are fined for throwing cigarettes butts on the ground and mining is banned. But with the reality of a soaring population, poverty and unemployment, Mayor Ed's cause is a never-ending struggle. He is facing threats from former and current enemies, forcing him to travel in a bullet proof SUV, guarded by armed bodyguards 24 hours a day. There is no way of knowing the fate of Puerto Princesa once the mayor is gone. Will his vision be continued or will the town go back to being a forgotten, third world city with corruption and an uncertain future? Adorably called by his grandson 'Papa Boss', this is how he is perceived: to his family - a loved father figure, to the rest - he is the boss. duration 52:01   STEREO TVG

    Troubled Waters: A Mississippi River Story America's Heartland is home to some of the world's most productive farmland, but this bounty comes with a price At a crossroads, the future health of America's agricultural lands and waters depends upon a combination of solutions Troubled Waters: A Mississippi River Story traces the development of America's bountiful harvest and its effect on the legendary river. Excess nitrogen and phosphorous fertilizers are contaminating the nation's waters at the same time that precious soils wash away. Farmers, scientists and citizens are seeking solutions that help meet the goals of an ambitious, food-producing nation while ensuring the long-term health and sustainability of its most precious natural resources. Troubled Waters: A Mississippi River Story examines the "unintended consequences" of farming practices on water quality, soil loss and the "dead zone" in the Gulf of Mexico. Knitting together federal energy, farm and environmental policies, the film makes a compelling case for the revamping of US agricultural policy. It also helps viewers to grasp what is a profound truth - that a single drop of water in the Upper Midwest is connected to the "dead zone" in the Gulf of Mexico. Through beautiful photography and inspiring narrative, the film puts deliberate emphasis on solutions and provides a hopeful blueprint for progress and positive change. duration 56:42   STEREO TVG

    America Reframed [#201] Building Babel The film follows a year in the life of Sharif El-Gamal, developer of the so-called "Ground Zero Mosque," a Muslim-led community center two blocks from the World Trade Center. With unlimited access to his home and office, the film paints a portrait of a Muslim-American businessman up against impossible odds. A passionate Brooklyn-born Muslim, Sharif El-Gamal sees Park51 as a centerpiece of his own Muslim American identity. Born of a Polish-Catholic mother and Egyptian-Muslim father, El-Gamal only turned to Islam after 9/11 shook his faith to the core, and sees Park51 as a way to give back to the Lower Manhattan community. Married to a Muslim convert and the father of two daughters, Sharif represents an Islam that remains foreign to most Americans, especially given the way the media and politicians have continued to use Park51 as a point of controversy. Despite a principle goal of helping to rebuild Lower Manhattan, opposition to the plan has been virulent and non-stop. Thousands of Americans have rallied against the prospect of a Muslim institution being constructed in such proximity to Ground Zero, and Park51 has become an internationally discussed symbol of Islam's relationship to the Western world. Building Babel follows Park51?s development through the daily experiences and struggles of the men and women trying to make it a reality. duration 1:26:46   STEREO (Secondary audio: none)
