    Living Courageously: The Spirit of Women This program celebrates the courage of women in times of crisis. It also features insights from actor and advocate Jane Seymour, and profiles 3 American women whose lives have been transformed by challenging - even devastating - circumstances. Alison Levine overcame a life-threatening heart condition to become an international mountain climber, lead the first US women's Everest expedition and head a foundation that helps Ugandan women find work as mountain guides. Once involved with drugs and alcohol, Francine Ward's near-fatal car accident transformed her; she earned her law degree and now coaches women on self-esteem issues and works with teenagers struggling with addiction. Photographer Sheila Hagler - the first member of her family to graduate from college - now works with at-risk teens in a rural Alabama community devastated by Hurricane Katrina. duration 26:46   STEREO TVG

    Religion & Ethics NewsWeekly [#1730H] BI-VOCATIONAL PASTORS - To care for their families, and also lead their congregations, more and more ministers are working two jobs. Saul Gonzalez reports from Tennessee on pastors concerned that their secular jobs do not leave them time enough for full ministry to their congregations. Also, on the adjustment required of a wife when she learns that her husband, with a secular career, feels called to lead a church.
    BLIND BOYS OF ALABAMA - For 70 years, the Blind Boys of Alabama have been singing gospel music to inspire their audiences both with their music and their faith. Over the decades, the Blind Boys, still with some original members, have won five Grammys and been specially welcomed by the disabled. One of the members, Ricky McKinnie, says, "It's not about what you can't do. It's about what you do."
    FRANCISCAN MONASTERY OF THE HOLY LAND - Every Good Friday, in every Catholic parish in the country, a special collection is taken up for the Franciscans of the Holy Land.

The Franciscans have also created a monastery in Washington, DC where tourists can visit exact replicas of the most revered Holy Land sites.

    Nature [#3009H] What Plants Talk About This program integrates hard-core science with a light-hearted look at how plants behave, revealing a world where plants are as busy, responsive and complex as we are. From the stunning heights of the Great Basin Desert to the lush coastal rainforests of west coast Canada, scientist J.C. Cahill takes us on a journey into the "secret world of plants," revealing an astonishing landscape where plants eavesdrop on each other, talk to their allies, call in insect mercenaries and nurture their young. It is a world of pulsing activity, where plants communicate, co-operate and sometimes, wage all-out war. duration 55:16   SRND51 TVG (Secondary audio: DVI)

    Shark Island Whaler: The Real-Life Sequel to Moby Dick Two Brothers was a Nantucket whaleship that sank on the night of February 11, 1823, off the French Frigate Shoals. The ship's captain was George Pollard, Jr., former captain of the famous whaleship Essex. The wreck was discovered in 2008 (announced on February 11, 2011) by a team of marine archaeologists working on an expedition for the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration in the PapahAe? naumokuAe?kea Marine National Monument. duration 28:45   STEREO TVG

    Predator Legends Grizzlies, cougars and wolves - creatures full of metaphor and part of the spirit of the West - are featured in this program, which goes in search of the meaning these large predators hold for various people of the Pacific Northwest. The production was filmed in Idaho, Montana and Wyoming amid the sweeping landscape where these animals live. The camera captures images of the living legends and the people who know them. Nez Perce elder Horace Axtell says the animals are "in some sense, like brothers." He says it is about being connected: "All of these are connected in a way that old people used to live a long time ago." Doug Peacock, author of Grizzly Years and a Vietnam veteran, headed into the backcountry to heal himself and met North America's largest bears, bumping against grizzlies accidentally. "Only an experience that original, that primal, that powerful would have let me exorcise my own ghosts." Author Rick Bass says, "I don't think we'll ever know how much they're intertwined with the place." The wilderness landscape of the American West has shaped the American culture, he says, and the connection to the large animals of the wilderness is still out there "even if you don't feel it." duration 26:46   STEREO TVG

    Global Voices [#410] Storm of Emotions When Israel completed its withdrawal from the Sinai desert in 1982 following a peace agreement with Egypt, many people chose Gush Katif, a bloc of Israeli settlements in the Gaza Strip, as their new home. But when the Israeli government ordered the evacuation of Gaza in August 2005 as part of its disengagement plan, the decision resulted in massive political and social turmoil.
    This program documents the historic moment of this evacuation, one of the most complex and provocative missions to ever be undertaken by Israel's police forces. It focuses on the police forces as it accompanies police crews during the disengagement process and follows participants including a religious policeman, a policewoman, senior officers, and more. The settlers involved also use the presence of cameras and news correspondents to publicize their issues. The result is an emotional and intense documentary that conveys the full force of the evacuation and offers a portrait of one of Israel's most dramatic recent events.
