    Lost Years of Zora Neale Hurston Writer, folklorist and anthropologist Zora Neale Hurston, a celebrated (and sometimes controversial) figure of the Harlem Renaissance, first rose to prominence with Mules and Men (1935) and cemented her reputation soon after with her 1937 masterwork, Their Eyes Were Watching God. However, few know about the woman behind this widely read and highly acclaimed novel - particularly the last 10 years of her life.
    This program delves into the writer's life, work and philosophies, concentrating on her very productive but often overlooked, final decade. Interviews with Hurston experts and colleagues, letters from Hurston, and archival photographs piece together this fascinating chapter in the life of an American literary icon.

Deborah Potter reports on the personal religious experiences of Hispanic evangelicals in Chicago at what is now the largest Assembly of God church in the country. (Previously aired July 19, 2013)
    CHRISTMAS GIFT GIVING - The tradition of giving Christmas presents is often tied to the magi, or wise men, who according to the Bible story, brought precious gifts to the baby Jesus. But many Christians say things have gotten out of hand. The average American family is projected to spend about $750 on Christmas this year. Kim Lawton looks at the ways some churches are urging their members to avoid consumerism and practice more meaningful Christmas gift giving. (Previously aired December 14, 2012)
    WHIRLING DERVISHES - Like other major religions, Islam has a mystical branch, Sufism, which teaches many ways to experience spiritual union with the divine.

Manjula Kumar, a program manager at the Smithsonian Institution, describes the origins and meaning of whirling dervish dancing. (Previously aired June 7, 2013)
    PUNDITS AND THE POPE - Two prominent Washington columnists, E.J. Dionne and Michael Gerson, assess Pope Francis's call for the Catholic Church not only to make caring for the poor a higher priority but to work for a more just economic system.

    Nature [#2608H] Why We Love Cats and Dogs? Ask anyone and they immediately know - they're either a dog person or a cat person. What is this all about? Follow an in-depth investigation into the great divide between dogs and cats and just what draws us to these two polarizing pets. Animal behaviorists, psychologists, trainers and devoted owners all weigh in. Dogs, we discover, are geniuses at reading what we want and the complex cat-human bond can be as fickle or as deep as a marriage. Funny, touching and provocative, we ask how well we really know our best friends and why we love them so much. duration 55:16   SRND51 TVG

    Nova [#3506] A Walk to Beautiful This program, a story of hope and survival in contemporary Ethiopia, presents the stories of five Ethiopian women who have been devastated by obstetric fistula, a common aftermath of neglected childbirth. An obstetric fistula is a hole that forms between the vagina and the bladder (and in some cases the rectum) during prolonged, obstructed labor. Affecting over two million women worldwide, this horrific injury leaves victims incontinent, often suffering nerve damage and in some cases unable to bear children again. Rejected by their husbands and ostracized by their communities, these women are often left to spend the rest of their lives alone, isolated and ashamed -- unless they can get help. NOVA follows these women on their journey to the Addis Ababa Fistula Hospital, where they find health and solace for the first time in years. The dignity of their struggle connects viewers to the plight of countless women in the developing world who face daily challenges from malnutrition, child marriage and lack of obstetric care. duration 56:46   STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: none)
