    America Reframed [#202] Radio Unnameable Legendary radio personality Bob Fass revolutionized late night FM radio by serving as a cultural hub for music, politics and audience participation for nearly 50 years. Long before today's innovations in social media, Fass utilized the airwaves for mobilization encouraging luminaries and ordinary listeners to talk openly and take the program in surprising directions. Fass and his committed group of friends, peers, and listeners proved time and time again through massive, planned meetups and other similar events that radio was not a solitary experience but rather a platform to unite communities of like-minded, or even just open-minded, individuals without the dependence on large scale corporate backing. Radio Unnameable is a visual and aural collage that pulls from Bob Fass's immense archive of audio from his program, film, photographs, and video that has been sitting dormant until now. Revealing the underexposed world of independent radio, the film illustrates the intimate relationship Fass and, by extension, WBAI formed with their listeners that were strong enough to maintain the station?s role as one of the most successful listener-sponsored programs in the United States. duration 1:56:45   STEREO (Secondary audio: none)

    Moyers & Company [#249H] Gunfighter Nation Cultural historian and scholar Richard Slotkin has spent his adult life studying the violence that has swirled through American history and taken root deep in our culture. He has written an acclaimed trilogy on the myth of the frontier that has shaped our nation's imagination. In Regeneration through Violence, The Fatal Environment, Gunfighter Nation, and other works of history and fiction, he tracks how everything from literature, movies and television to society and politics has been influenced by this violent past - including the gun culture that continues to dominate, wound and kill. And he outlines how, in America's frantic expansion across an opulent continent from the Atlantic to the Pacific, this country embraced a mythology of the frontier. With it came the folklore of gun-slinging, brave white settlers taming the wilderness to justify and romanticize an unhappy record of subjugation, violence and bloodshed.
    On this one year anniversary of the massacre at Newtown, Connecticut - a massacre that took the lives of 20 school children and 6 educators at the Sandy Hook Elementary School - Bill Moyers speaks with Professor Slotkin, who recently retired from a distinguished teaching career at Wesleyan University, just 45 minutes from Newtown. "The myth holds," Slotkin tells Moyers. "And it is stronger than the reality. Because those guns, particularly the Colt, are associated with one of the most active phases - and most interesting phases - of expansion. And therefore it has the magic of a tool - the gun that won the west, the guns that created the American democracy and made equality possible."

    Washington Week with Gwen Ifill [#5324H] * Late Thursday the House passed a bipartisan budget proposal that will fund the government through 2015 and avert a potential government shutdown in January. The Senate is expected to pass the measure next week even though Republican lawmakers remain split on the compromise deal and some Democrats are disappointed the bill does not include an extension of unemployment benefits for the long-term unemployed. Molly Ball of The Atlantic and Jeanne Cummings of Bloomberg News will explain why many liberals and conservatives agree the new deal is "no grand bargain" but it could represent a crucial step in breaking through Washington's partisan gridlock.
    * The Obama administration continues to try and recover from the fumbled rollout of the Affordable Care Act. New polls out this week show most Americans have an unfavorable impression of the job President Obama is doing. Voters hold Congress in even lower regard with an approval rating of just 13%. John Harwood of CNBC and The New York Times explains why the president has decided to shakeup some of his White House staff in hopes of nudging a sharply divided Congress toward making some progress on his second-term agenda.
    * Plus, Doyle McManus of the Los Angeles Times will take a closer look at how Secretary of State John Kerry has become Obama's diplomatic star taking on some of the toughest diplomatic challenges from around the globe during his first year at the State Department.

    MORE MORMON MISSIONARIES - At a time when many Christian denominations continue to lose members, the number of people in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is going up steadily, from 3 million in 1970 to more than 15 million today, worldwide. One reason is new, lower age limits for both men and women who want to serve as missionaries. Lucky Severson reports that there are now more than 80,000 Mormon missionaries, all over the world, trying to combat what one Mormon leader calls the "growing level of wickedness."

    KQED NEWSROOM [#108H] Water Wars, Archbishop Cordileone and Hacking for Social Change
    Water Tunnel Wars
    This week, state officials unveiled the latest version of an ambitious plan to address California's decades-old water crisis. A whopping 34,000 pages detail the environmental impact of a $25 billion project to divert water from the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta and pipe it to Southern California. Proponents say the project will help move water from the state's north to the south while saving the Delta's endangered species. Critics call the plan a costly water grab and have vowed to block it in court or at the ballot box.

    Archbishop Cordileone
    Catholics around the world cheered this week's selection of Pope Francis as Time magazine's Person of the Year. In words and deeds, the new pope has provided a distinct change in tone for the church, stressing modesty and concern for the poor, while rejecting an emphasis on social issues like abortion and gay rights. Scott Shafer sits down with San Francisco Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone for a look into how the local church hierarchy is reacting. Cordileone, a San Diego native, was named archbishop by Pope Benedict XVI in 2012. He is a conservative figure in one of the state's liberal bastions, leading a flock that stretches from Marin to San Mateo.

    Hacking for Social Change
    Computer code and apps could be the next tools used in the fight to curb gun violence. One year after the Newtown massacre, the Bay Area hosts a conference exploring how technology can prevent future tragedies. Thuy Vu talks with James Colgan of Highground Hackers, the group behind this weekend's "Symposium for Sandy Hook."

Samuel Pierpont Langley, John and Phoebe Brashear, and James Keeler embarked on studies of the sun and skies in the 19th century, an era when many dismissed astronomy as "junk science." They endured years of enormous hardships, demoralizing setbacks and humiliating failures to ultimately make world-changing contributions to science and technology.

    Silicon Valley: American Experience A startling announcement pulsated through a suburban garage in Santa Clara County, California, on October 4, 1957. There, some of the young founders of a new semiconductor company were busy talking to silicon suppliers, hounding realtors for office space, shopping for desks and poring over the names of young PhDs they hoped to poach from rival companies when they heard the shocking news: the Soviet Union had just launched the first artificial satellite into orbit around the earth. The group's leader, Robert Noyce, watched Sputnik flash across the darkened sky. He could not have known that he would play a key role in helping America win the space race. Noyce's innovation, the integrated circuit, would make an impact far beyond the Apollo program. It would shape the way Americans live, making possible smart phones and digital video recorders, pacemakers and microwaves. In telling the story of Noyce and the integrated circuit, this film looks at the monumental impact the microchip had on modern life and reveals the pivotal role Noyce played in transforming a fertile farmland into one of the most creative places on earth -- the hub of technological ingenuity we now know as Silicon Valley duration 1:25:46   STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: DVI)
