    America Reframed [#205] Code of the West At a time when the world is rethinking its drug policies large and small, one state rises to the forefront. Once a pioneer in legalizing medical marijuana, the state of Montana may now become the first to repeal its medical marijuana law. Set against the sweeping vistas of the Rockies, the steamy lamplight of marijuana grow houses, and the bustling halls of the State Capitol, this program follows the political process of marijuana policy reform and the recent federal crackdown on medical marijuana growers across the country. Chronicling the opinions and reactions of patients, growers, politicians, activists, and community members on both sides of the issue, the story paints an image of what happens when federal and state governments clash with communities in the crossfire, and the individuals involved who ultimately pay the price. duration 1:29:36   STEREO (Secondary audio: none)

    Looking Over Jordan: African Americans and the War The Civil War began as a means of preserving the Union. However, to nearly four million African Americans, it held a much more personal promise. As Northern armies swept south, self-emancipated slaves sought refuge behind Union lines. Determined to claim basic human rights, these former slaves-turned-soldiers fought valiantly for the Union and many sacrificed their lives for the cause.
    This documentary chronicles the black experience in the South before, during and after the war. The informative documentary features interviews with Civil War scholars, historical re-enactments, and primary readings from abolitionist Frederick Douglass, US Secretary of State William Seward, Louis B. Hughes' autobiography Thirty Years a Slave, and the Emancipation Proclamation of 1863. Among other topics, the doc covers the marked rise of slavery between 1790 and 1860, the role of religion and music in the slave narrative, the influx of freed black slaves into the Union army, heroics at the Battle of Nashville in December 1864, both Confiscation Acts, and the creation of the Bureau of Freedman, Refugees and Abandoned Land to aid freed slaves in the early Reconstruction era.

    Moyers & Company [#307H] The Deep State Hiding In Plain Sight Former Capitol Hill insider Mike Lofgren talks with Bill Moyers about "Anatomy of the Deep State," an essay he has written exclusively for the Moyers website, BillMoyers.com. Mike Lofgren was a numbers man, a congressional staff member for 28 years with the powerful House and Senate Budget committees. Over the years, as he crunched the numbers, he realized they didn't add up. Instead, they led him to what he calls America's Deep State - a phrase he borrowed from British spy novelist John Le Carre - a government just beneath the surface where elected and unelected figures collude to protect and serve powerful vested interests. "It is the big story of our time," Lofgren tells Moyers. "It is, I would say, the red thread that runs through the history of the last 3 decades. It's how we had deregulation, financialization of the economy, the Wall Street bust, the erosion of our civil liberties, and perpetual war."
    In his essay, Lofgren describes the Deep State as "a hybrid association of elements of government and parts of top-level finance and industry that is effectively able to govern the US without reference to the consent of the governed." But, as he says to Moyers in their conversation, the power and wealth generated by this Deep State "does not trickle down. Our inequality is as great or greater than any time since the 1920s. Nevertheless, corporate profits are at record highs, while unemployment remains very high and tens of millions of people are on food stamps. That isn't a natural evolution. Something made it happen. " That something, Lofgren says, is the Deep State.
    Now retired from congressional politics, Mike Lofgren is author of the book, "The Party Is Over: How Republicans Went Crazy, Democrats Became Useless and the Middle Class Got Shafted."

    European Journal [#3208] Uprising of the Unemployed BRITAIN: NO END TO THE FLOOD WARNINGS - In parts of Britain it just hasn't stopped raining. Entire regions in the south of the country have been under water for weeks. The flood victims blame the government in part for the situation, because in the past few years it's successively cut flood defense spending. The county of Somerset looks like a huge lake. Heavy rain on already saturated ground caused river levels in the Somerset Levels to rise by meters. Entire villages have had to be evacuated. The army has been deployed to lay out sandbags in order to hold back at least some of the water. The government is now considering applying for money from the EU's solidarity fund. The long delay in doing so is said to have its roots in domestic politics. Time and again British politicians have called UK membership in the EU into question.
    BOSNIA-HERCEGOVINA: UPRISING OF THE UNEMPLOYED - In Bosnia, for the first time is years, tens of thousands of people have demonstrated against their political leadership. They hold it responsible for the high unemployment levels and impoverishment in the country. The protests were sparked when several formerly state-run companies were closed. In Tuzla, Sarajevo and Mostar, demonstrators clashed with police. Hundreds of people were injured. Since the end of the Bosnian War nearly 20 years ago, the country has been in political crisis. The reason is the ongoing dispute between the Muslim Bosnians, Orthodox Serbs and Roman Catholic Croats - and a complicated state structure that was supposed to please all ethnicities. Calls for changes to the constitution are growing louder.
    FRANCE: ROCK BOTTOM - No more deep sea fishing? French trawlers drag their nets over the ocean floor, endangering the unique cold water coral reefs in the Atlantic. Public pressure is growing keep fishing confined to coastal areas. Overfishing has led fishermen to move to the high seas. According to the United Nations, these deep-sea areas are highly vulnerable ecosystems, with their unique biodiversity and slow life cycles. Spanish, Portuguese and French deep-sea fishers in particular still use old-fashioned methods such as bottom trawling. The haul from the ocean depths is only a fraction of the catch, but environmentalists say its impact is dramatic.
    POLAND: IN THE LIGHT MAZE (SERIES: EUROPE BY NIGHT) - Every winter in Poland, one of Europe's loveliest palaces and its park transform themselves into an enchanted realm. Hundreds of thousands of Poles watch the spectacle. Because the country is quite far to the east in the Central European time zone, it's already dark in the afternoon. 150,000 lights illuminate Wilanew Palace. In its 300-year history, the palace has seen a lot, including the lavish summer fetes of King Augustus the Strong, the partitions of Poland, two World Wars and communism. Now it is being renovated, but at present the real attraction is in the palace park: a huge maze of lights.

The lawsuit charges that teens with disabilities are kept in solitary confinement for up to 23 hours a day and are illegally denied special education and rehabilitation services.

    Massive Neglect Revealed in Richmond Public Housing
    Richmond's public housing agency has been named among the "worst of the worst" by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. Residents in some of the city's five public housing projects complain of dangerous conditions, from high crime rates to rampant infestations of rats, mice and cockroaches. Officials at the Richmond Housing Authority cite ongoing budget cuts, while critics say mismanagement and neglect are to blame. This special report is part of a series produced in collaboration with the Center for Investigative Reporting and the San Francisco Chronicle.

If Sam is drafted by the NFL in May, he would become the first openly gay player on a pro football team. Here in the Bay Area, Golden State Warriors president Rick Welts understands what Sam is facing on a personal level — Welts himself shook up the world of professional sports three years ago when he came out as gay. Newsroom correspondent Scott Shafer talks with Welts about his experience as the highest ranking openly gay executive in men's sports.

    Nova [#3914H] Mystery of Easter Island A remote, bleak speck of rock in the middle of the Pacific, Easter Island, or Rapa Nui, has mystified the world ever since the first Europeans arrived in 1722. How and why did the ancient islanders build and move nearly 900 giant statues or moai, weighing up to 86 tons? And how did they transform a presumed paradise into a treeless wasteland, bringing ruin upon their island and themselves? Nova explores controversial recent claims that challenge decades of previous thinking about the islanders, who have been accused of everything from ecocide to cannibalism. Among the radical new theories is that the islanders used ropes to "walk" the statues upright, like moving a fridge. With the help of an accurate 15-ton replica statue, a Nova team sets out to test this high-risk, seemingly unlikely theory. duration 55:16   STEREO TVPG
