    Serving America: Memories of Peace Corps This program highlights the experiences of some of the nearly 3000 volunteers who served during the early years of the Peace Corps. A mix of archival film and photographs, along with personal stories from former volunteers, tells a story of service and idealism. Interviews convey the volunteers' passion, commitment and bravery as they lived and worked in developing countries, including South and Central America, Africa and the Middle East. From almost fatal obstacles to spiritual epiphanies, these men and women describe their transformative experiences. Donna Shalala, former US Secretary of Health and Human Services (1993-2001), recounts the adventure of serving in Iran between 1962 and 1964. "What the Peace Corps really did is make me a citizen of the world," says Shalala. duration 26:44   STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: none)

    Rebels with a Cause Narrated by Oscar-winning actress Frances McDormand, this program spotlights a group of dedicated conservationists who fought to preserve open space, protect agriculture and wildlife, and establish public parks near San Francisco. Beginning in the 1950s, ordinary citizens from all walks of life, concerned by the intentions of residential land developers and the environmental cost of "progress," began banding together to save a vast stretch of Northern California coastline. Their passionate activism at both the local and federal level helped create Point Reyes National Seashore and the Golden Gate National Recreation Area. These precedent-setting efforts also raised Californians' awareness of their power to promote change, fostered a national movement to preserve open spaces, and shaped the environmental movement of today. duration 56:46   STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: none)

    Olmsted and America's Urban Parks 151 years after Frederick Law Olmsted (1822-1903) designed New York City's Central Park with Calvert Vaux, it remains an undisputed haven of tranquility amid one of the largest, tallest and most unnatural places in the world. This program, narrated by actress Kerry Washington, examines the visionary urban planner and landscape architect's impact on the development of America's first great city parks in the late 19th century.
    With incredible foresight, Olmsted brought nourishing green spaces to New York, Boston, Chicago, San Francisco, Atlanta, Louisville and dozens of other US cities. Throughout his working life, Olmsted and his firm carried out more than 500 commissions, including nearly 100 public parks. He believed parks should serve as vital democratic spaces, where citizens from all walks of life could converge and feel restored. Prior to officially committing to landscape architecture, Olmsted worked as a New York Times correspondent to the Confederate states, the manager of a California gold mine and General Secretary of the United States Sanitary Commission during the Civil War.
    Olmsted, a workaholic by today's standards, devoted the latter half of his life to creating green spaces for overworked city dwellers. Told in large part through Olmsted's own words (voiced by Oscar winning actor Kevin Kline), this film weaves together his poignant personal story and pioneering vision with contemporary footage of the lasting masterpieces he left behind.

    Religion & Ethics NewsWeekly [#1734] INDIA'S INVISIBLE DOMESTICS - From India's impoverished villages, millions of girls and young women flock to the cities - or are forced to go - to find work as domestic servants. Fred de Sam Lazaro reports from New Delhi on the hidden, sometimes almost enslaved workers who endure little legal protection, minimal pay and widespread indifference to their situation and efforts to improve their conditions.
    JERUSALEM THE MOVIE - Reports about Jerusalem often focus on conflicts and tensions. But a stunning new 3D film, Jerusalem, by National Geographic Entertainment, looks instead at the beauty and sacredness of the city. The filmmakers were granted unprecedented access to the city's holiest sites. Jerusalem, which is currently playing in IMAX theaters in the US and around the world, features 3 young women, a Jew, a Muslim and a Christian, who are all from Jerusalem. Kim Lawton spoke with the women during their recent visit to the US. Her report also includes clips from the film.
    CANONIZATION OF POPES JOHN XXIII AND JOHN PAUL II - On Sunday (April 27) at the Vatican, Pope Francis will preside over a double canonization ceremony to elevate Pope John XXIII and Pope John Paul II to sainthood. Bob Abernethy talks with Kim Lawton and Kevin Eckstrom about the legacies of these two new saints and what their canonization means to Catholics and non-Catholics alike.

    Nature [#3110] Snow Monkeys In the frigid valleys of Japan's Shiga Highlands, a troop of snow monkeys make their way and raise their families in a complex society of rank and privilege where each knows their place. Their leader is still new to the job and something of a solitary grouch. But one little monkey, innocently unaware of his own lowly social rank, reaches out to this lonely leader, forming a bond with him that manages over time to warm his less than sunny disposition. It is a rare and remarkable gesture that alters both their lives. Changing seasons bring new babies to care for, a profusion of insects and blossoms to eat, family disagreements to squabble over and tragedies to overcome. Mating season brings competition for females as the days grow shorter and colder in a rush toward winter. But with their now confident leader to guide them and their families to shelter and care for them, this troop of snow monkeys is ready to face the world. duration 56:46   STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: none)
