    Secrets of the Dead [#1004] Slave Ship Mutiny When the Meermin set sail from Madagascar en route to South Africa on a hot summer's day in 1766, the Dutch crew had no idea they were about to make history. The ship was filled to capacity with human cargo, slaves bound for hard labor building the Dutch colony, Cape Town. But the Meermin with its crew and cargo would never make it to Cape Town. Instead, in a dramatic altercation, the slaves mutinied and managed to overpower the Dutch crew, ordering the ship be sailed back to Madagascar and freedom. But through a sinister act of deception the crew turned the boat around each evening and made full sail for Cape Town. And so the circumstances for a dramatic climax -- and shipwreck -- were laid when the ship and its desperate passengers finally spied land. This program tracks the efforts of archaeologists, historians and slave descendents to discover the full story of this dramatic historical event. They want to learn what happened on the Meermin, how the slaves were able to overpower their captors, and why the ship ended up wrecked on a wild, windswept beach 200 miles east of Cape Town. duration 56:46   STEREO TVPG-V (Secondary audio: none)

    Religion & Ethics NewsWeekly [#1747] LATINO CONVERTS TO ISLAM - We visit the Islamic Center of Greater Miami to look at the rising number of Latino Muslims in the US - as many as 250,000, according to estimates. Some of the converts say that in Islam they have found theological simplicity and "no intermediaries with God." The Islamic Circle of North America reports that more than half of the US Latino converts are women. "I just felt that the minute I put my head down to the ground," says Nadia Echevrria, "I felt like I was really talking to God."
    RESPONDING TO THE MIGRANT CRISIS - How are religious groups trying to help children caught at the US border? "It's not like your typical disaster, where churches clean up after a hurricane or a tornado," says Kevin Eckstrom, editor-in-chief of Religion News Service. "This is much more complicated."

    Hubert H. Humphrey: The Art of the Possible Many Americans remember former Vice President Hubert Humphrey (1911-1978) as a cheerleader for the Vietnam War - shunned by his own party and mistrusted by a generation of young people. Others considered him a great progressive, a guiding light for the post-New Deal liberal movement that forged The New Frontier and The Great Society, and a champion of civil rights. This program takes a fresh look at the great body of work of this remarkable American. Ten years in the making, the film uses Humphrey's own words and interviews with President Jimmy Carter, Vice President Walter Mondale, Bill Moyers, Tom Hayden and others, to explore his journey through the major events of the 20th century. duration 1:56:24   STEREO TVG

    Moyers & Company [#329H] The Conscience of a Compassionate Conservative Arthur C. Brooks says that despite the heated rhetoric of the far right, the compassionate conservatism once touted by George W. Bush isn't dead. It's alive and well at the conservative American Enterprise Institute - AEI - where Brooks became president in 2009. Residing now at the top of the conservative pecking order in Washington, Brooks advises Republican leaders in Congress and spreads AEI's message to a wider audience. His specialty, as Newsweek describes it, is "translating ideas from policy speak into soaring moral prose." One of his key ideas: the endgame of free enterprise is not to preserve wealth but to create opportunity for the poor.
    This week, Moyers and Brooks engage in a lively exchange over the safety net, which Brooks supports for the very poor, and a hike in the minimum wage, which he opposes. "The problem with the minimum wage is that it hurts the people it's supposed to help," he claims. "It's the worst way to try to wipe out the unemployment scourge that we have in this country. We don't have a low wage problem. We have an unemployment problem in the bottom 50%. America has left the bottom behind. And we have a conspiracy - we have a left wing politically that talks about solutions, but has no implementable answers that actually help poor people. And we have a right wing that traditionally doesn't even talk about poverty."
    Moyers presses Brooks on why companies like Target, McDonald's and Walmart don't pay a living wage to their employees who then have to rely on public programs to support themselves - in Walmart's case, about $4000 per worker. Brooks argues the market doesn't support higher wages and agrees that the country needs public policies that make work pay for those who perform it. While "free enterprise is a system of institutions and cultural values that respect the individual," he says, "it has no hostility" toward the idea of government or a safety net.
    Once a classical musician who took his French horn on the road with the fabled guitarist Charlie Byrd, Arthur Brooks taught economics, government and social entrepreneurship at Syracuse University. He is the author of hundreds of articles and 10 books, including his most recent, "The Road to Freedom: How to Win the Fight for Free Enterprise."

    Food Forward [#101H] Urban Agriculture Across America From the rooftop farms of New York City to the food deserts of Detroit, join us as Food Forward explores the explosion of urban agriculture across America. Meet food rebel John Mooney, whose space-age hydroponic farm on top of a historic building in the West Village of Manhattan is a window into the future of rooftop farming. In Milwaukee, meet the biggest name in urban agriculture, Will Allen, who inspires a new generation of aquaponic innovators. We then learn of one woman's transition from hanging out to harvesting food on the streets of West Oakland.
    Finally, we finish in Detroit with Travis Roberts, an eighteen-year-old who grew up watching the city struggle with increasing urban blight. In trouble and more than 100 pounds overweight, he discovered the city's urban agriculture movement and found a new purpose in life through urban chicken farming. Travis is joined by a cast of powerful characters in Detroit that are rebuilding their city, block by block. Food Forward opens the door into a new world of possibility, where pioneers and visionaries are creating viable alternatives to food systems.

    Washington Week with Gwen Ifill [#5403H] * A dizzying array of international crises from the Middle East to Ukraine has garnered both global attention and outrage.
    In the Middle East, Hamas and Israel remain locked in combat. Despite intensive mediation efforts by the United States and Egypt, efforts to stop the conflict between the Israelis and Palestinians collapsed and aggressions on both sides show no signs of abating.
    In eastern Ukraine, the standoff between the government and pro-Russian separatists has only escalated in the days following last week's downing of a Malaysian jetliner hampering investigation and recovery efforts. Meanwhile, the heated rhetoric between the United States and Europe against Russia is making a tense situation even more unpredictable.
    Gwen Ifill will examine the options the US and European nations are considering to address the cascade of international crisis with Peter Baker of The New York Times, Nancy Youssef of McClatchy Newspapers, and Doyle McManus of the Los Angeles Times.
    * President Obama will address the recent surge of children illegally entering the US during a White House meeting with the presidents of El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras on Friday. Ed O'Keefe of The Washington Post, who interviewed two of the visiting leaders this week, will report on the discussions with the president; why immigration reform has become a foreign policy challenge for the Obama administration; and how efforts to come up with a solution in Congress appear stalled.

    KQED NEWSROOM [#136H] Unaccompanied Child Migrants, Gov. Brown's Appointees, New Species at Cal Academy
    Unaccompanied Children Crossing the U.S. Border

    Sen. Darrell Steinberg
    California Senate President pro Tem Darrell Steinberg and a delegation of state lawmakers returned this week from a 10-day trip to El Salvador, Panama and Guatemala. They met with government officials to understand the economic and social conditions contributing to the recent influx of unaccompanied minors attempting to cross into the United States. Sen. Steinberg shares his thoughts with Scott Shafer about immigration reform and public policy to help address this growing problem.

    Panel Discussion
    Last month President Obama acknowledged that the tens of thousands of unaccompanied, undocumented minors trying to cross the U.S.- Mexico border constituted an "urgent humanitarian situation." The minors, who are mainly from Mexico and other Central American countries, pose legal and political challenges to the administration, as public opposition to detention centers to house them grows. Thuy Vu moderates a panel discussion about the impact in the Bay Area, where some of these children end up..

Scott Shafer looks at the governor's recent judicial appointees and how they're changing the face of the court system.

    New Species at California Academy of Sciences
    Researchers from the California Academy of Sciences in San Francisco recently returned from an expedition to the Verde Island passage in the Philippines. It's a place they call the "center of the center of marine biodiversity." More unique marine species live in that spot than anywhere else in the ocean -- and now some of their discoveries are on display in the Steinhart Aquarium.

    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)
