    PBS NewsHour [#10928] POLARIZATION OF CONGRESS - If yesterday's primary elections in Nebraska and West Virginia are any indication, the rifts in Congress may soon be growing wider, as Tea Party-backed candidate Ben Sasse looks poised to assume the Senate seat vacated by the more moderate Republican Mike Johanns, who is retiring. In West Virginia, Rep. Shelly Moore Capito won the GOP primary and is favored to win the seat in the fall. Gwen Ifill sits down with NewsHour political editor Domenico Montanaro to talk about the latest primaries.
    BILL CLINTON - Coming off his appearance at the Peterson Foundation Fiscal Summit this morning, Gwen Ifill sat down with former President Bill Clinton to talk about growth, inequality, and what's next for the American economy. Tonight, we present her interview with Clinton.
    SENIORS & COLLEGE - Many Americans have nostalgic feelings towards the universities and colleges they attended. Now, some colleges are trying to revitalize those relationships by opening retirement communities for former students and others. As part of our "Taking Care" series, NewsHour Special Correspondent Spencer Michels reports on how some of our nation's seniors are starting to find comfort at their old alma maters.
    CHINA / VIETNAM - Tensions between China and Vietnam reached a fever pitch today, as thousands of protesters set fire to a number of factories in southern Vietnam in a demonstration against China's deployment of an oil rig into the shared waters of the South China Sea, an area both countries claim as sovereign territory. Judy Woodruff sits down with Kenneth Lieberthal, the former senior director for Asia on the National Security Council, and Commentary Magazine contributor Gordon Chang to discuss what these latest developments mean for relations between the two countries.
    ALL OUR NAMES - Tonight, we examine a new fictional take on love, war, and the struggle of finding personal identity through it all, as Jeffrey Brown sits down with Dinaw Mengestu to talk about his latest book "All Our Names."

    Pacific Heartbeat [#102H] Under A Jarvis Moon Under a Jarvis Moon is the story of 130 young men from Hawai'i who, from the late 1930s through the early years of World War II, were part of a clandestine mission by the U.S. federal government to occupy desert islands in the middle of the Pacific. The first wave of these colonists were Hawaiian high school students, chosen because government officials assumed Pacific Islanders could best survive the harsh conditions present on the tiny, isolated islands. For the young men, who were unaware of the true purpose of their role as colonists, what ensued is a tale of intrigue, courage, and ultimately, tragedy. Amazingly, these men (four of whom are still alive) are only now being recognized for their sacrifice, and efforts are underway for the United States to officially acknowledge them for serving their country. duration 56:46   STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: DVI)

    Calling Tokyo This documentary tells the unheralded story about a group of Japanese Americans, who as civilians served America during World War II, even as their families and friends were incarcerated in concentration camps. While the unequaled battle records of Japanese American soldiers are now legendary, little is known about the vital role played by these US citizens who did language translation work and short wave radio broadcasting to Japan, assisting in the war efforts of Britain and the USA. Through actual recordings and first-person interviews with the participants of those broadcasts, CALLING TOKYO is a fascinating story about a unique effort to help hasten the end of the war. duration 25:48   TVG
