    Focus On Europe [#3151] AUSTRIA/GERMANY: TOLLS CREATE TRAFFIC JAMS - Germany's planned toll on foreign transport trucks promises to bring the country million of euros. But in Austria the move is causing anger because here, as a rule, all drivers are required to pay fees. That's also the case on the Inntal highway near Kufstein, a route used by many Germans. It used to be a free road, but as of this month a vignette is required. Winter sports enthusiasts from Bavaria who often used the highway to get to ski resorts in Tyrol are now opting to travel through surrounding towns and villages. This has created a huge influx of traffic and traffic jams in small places like Kiefersfelden and Kufstein.
    SPAIN: CONTROVERSIAL RELEASE - A judgment by the European Court of Human Rights is requiring Spain to release around 60 felons and members of Basque nationalist group ETA from jail. The local authorities had tried to change the legal limits on the prisoners' detention. The families of the prisoners' 800 victims have expressed outrage over the decision in Strasbourg. Among the ETA terrorists now to be released are a woman jailed for her role in 23 counts of murder and originally sentenced to over 3000 years. ETA was founded in 1959 in opposition to the Franco dictatorship, with the aim of greater independence for the Basque people. Although the group still wants to see an independent state, the group formally ended its armed struggle in 2011 after four decades of violence.
    RUSSIA: DECOMMISSIONING ATOMIC SUBMARINES - The North Sea fleet was once the pride of the Soviet Union, but now its radioactive legacy threatens fishing grounds in the Arctic Sea. That could be about to change. When the Soviet Union collapsed, its fleet of nuclear submarines became a ticking time bomb. An agreement to destroy the nuclear legacy of the Cold War has been in force for a decade, as the international community tries to stop radioactive material from damaging the environment or falling into the hands of terrorists. Germany is providing the necessary infrastructure for the project. German engineers are due to hand the site over in 2014.
    BELGIUM: ARRANGING MARRIAGES BY GENETIC TESTING - Antwerp, Belgium is home to 20,000 Orthodox Jews and is sometimes called the "Jerusalem of the North". This deeply religious community sets great store by modern medicine. Chomi and Jossi Weiss have six children and live in Antwerp's Jewish community. But before they were permitted to marry their genes had to be compared - even after the marriage broker touted them as a perfect match. The two Orthodox Jews wanted a blood test to make sure their children would not have genetically transmitted diseases. Belgium's Orthodox Jews may live very traditionally, but they routinely make use of modern genetic testing. Children in such closed communities are at risk of inheriting a double dose of harmful recessive genes. Orthodox Jews are often carriers of the gene for Tay-Sachs disease.

    Buddha Two and a half millennia ago, a new religion was born in northern India, generated from the ideas of a single man, the Buddha. He was a mysterious Indian sage who famously gained enlightenment while he sat under a big, shapely fig tree. The Buddha never claimed to be God or his emissary on earth. He said only that he was a human being who, in a world of unavoidable pain and suffering, had found a kind of serenity that others could find too. Award-winning filmmaker David Grubin tells the story of the Buddha's life, a journey especially relevant to our own bewildering times of violent change and spiritual confusion. This documentary draws upon the work of some of the world's greatest artists and sculptors, who across two millennia have depicted the Buddha's life in art rich in beauty and complexity. His biography is also tracked geographically across the sweeping landscapes of northern India. The testimony of contemporary Buddhists -- including Pulitzer prize-winning poet W.S. Merwin and His Holiness the Dalai Lama -- provides insight into the ancient narrative. To tell his story is to understand his teaching. And to understand his teaching is to gain new insight into what it is to be human. duration 1:56:46   STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: none)
