    Global Voices [#413] The Mosquito Problem and Other Stories A small town and its hopeful citizens are about to embark on a bright new journey. Massive rusty cranes, foreign investors, and the joyful chants of cheerleaders carry the dream of a great nuclear future. Disturbed only by gigantic stinging mosquitoes, the townsfolk celebrate the atomic hurray by engraving the nuclear power plant logo on buildings and soup bowls. Amidst the apparent atomic prosperity, lies a past that no one wants to remember. An island holding terrifying secrets. Stories of shocking and horrible crimes loom on the city just like the dark clouds of mosquitoes descending on its citizens. duration 54:07   STEREO (Secondary audio: none)

    Easy Like Water In flood-prone Bangladesh, visionary architect Mohammed Rezwan seeks to turn the front lines of climate change into a community of learning. His innovative floating boat schools - outfitted with solar-powered Internet - bring education to children, especially girls, whose schools lie underwater for 3 to 4 months of the year. This program follows "Bangladesh's Noah" as struggles to overcome both adversity and the high-pressure competition for resources to turn his vision into reality. duration 56:46   STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: none)

    Water Pressures Water is a central element of life, yet 1 in 8 people worldwide - 1.2 billion - lack access to safe drinking water. In the coming years, the water scarcity in some drought-stricken regions will turn into a global crisis. Hosted by actor-producer Adrian Grenier, this program sheds light on this critical, complex issue by documenting the partnership between villagers in water-distressed Rajasthan, India and students and faculty at Northwestern University, situated on the shores of Lake Michigan. Students in a Northwestern environmental policy class see a model of conservation and community cooperation firsthand on a 10-day trip to India, where a leading nonprofit organizations illustrates the power of pairing traditional wisdom with simple teamwork to solve the water crisis in the Thar Desert. They also meet with political leaders, corporate executives and water experts to create their own local partnerships and try to make a difference in their own communities. duration 56:46   STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: DVI)

    Religion & Ethics NewsWeekly [#1716] 50 years after Gideon - The Supreme Court's unanimous Gideon decision in 1963 required that everyone accused of a serious crime - rich or poor - is entitled to a defense lawyer. But Tim O'Brien found a mixed result. In some places the Gideon defendants are adequately represented but in too many others they are not; taxpayers cannot or do not want to pay for poor people's legal defense.
    Christmas Peace - "Peace on Earth" is a major theme this time of year. According to the Christmas story in the Bible, angels proclaimed that message when they announced the birth of Jesus. But how do contemporary Christians understand that in an often chaotic world? Kim Lawton talks with Christians about what peace on earth means to them.

    Nature [#3008H] Cold Warriors: Wolves and Buffalo For thousands of years, wolves hunted buffalo across the vast North American plains until the westward settlement of the continent saw the virtual extinction of these vast herds and their eternal predators, the wolves. However, this ancient relationship was not lost altogether and continues uninterrupted in just one location -- on the northern edge of the continent's central plains in a place named Wood Buffalo National Park. Today the ancestors of those ancient buffalo and wolves still engage in epic life and death dramas across this northern land. Packs of wolves up to 30 strong hunt the largest land mammals on the continent -- buffalo. By getting to know a specific pack of wolves and the individuals that make up the pack, we get a sense of how these two animal species (wolves and buffalo) live together in what seems like a forgotten corner of the world. duration 55:16   SRND51 TVPG (Secondary audio: DVI)

    Adventists This program explores the realities, and some of the ironies, of one of the few American-born religions: Seventh-day Adventism. Historical reenactments offer a glimpse into the church's beginnings, including its defining moment: the mid-19th century event known as the Great Disappointment. Several decades later, Dr. John Harvey Kellogg built a breakfast food empire and pioneered a new kind of healthcare facility based on Adventist principles of a healthy lifestyle: a plant-based diet; regular exercise; the avoidance of alcohol, tobacco or illegal drugs, and a holistic focus on education and community life. duration 56:46   STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: none)

Forced out of Vietnam by the war 30 years ago, many residents felt their homes were being taken away from them once again. duration 56:46   STEREO (Secondary audio: none)
