    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

    Japanese American Lives [#101] Mrs. Judo: Be Strong, Be Gentle, Be Beautiful Using rare archival footage, intimate interviews and plenty of on-the-mat action, director Yuriko Gamo Romer eloquently brings to life the inspiring story of a remarkable woman and judo master. At a time when women went from childhood home to wife and homemaker, Keiko Fukuda made an unpopular choice and took a different path, saying, "This [Judo] was my marriage...this is when my life destiny was set." This documentary beautifully showcases the life of 99-year-old Sensei Fukuda, presenting her as not only a pioneer for women but as an inspiration to us all. duration 59:00   STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: none)

    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)

    Religion & Ethics NewsWeekly [#1737] RWANDA GENOCIDE: 20 YEARS LATER - In 1994, ethnic tensions in Rwanda culminated in one hundred days of killing, in which nearly one million Tutsi people were killed by their Hutu neighbors. Now, two decades later in the largely Christian country, many perpetrators are being released from prison and seeking forgiveness from those they traumatized. The Christian charity World Vision has brought together thousands of pairs of victims and assailants in small groups, encouraging restoration through building houses and planting trees for survivors. "I see real reconciliation is taking place, and it's not fake. It's genuine," says Josephine Munyeli, a peace and reconciliation expert for World Vision. "You cannot fake reconciliation. You can't."
    YOUNG GAY MEN AND HIV IN CHICAGO - The rate of HIV infections has stabilized in every demographic in America accept for one. It has increased by twenty-two percent in recent years for young gay men 13 to 25 years old. A Chicago-based organization called The Night Ministry, founded by clergy members, has equipped a van to offer rapid free testing and other resources right on the street. Rabbi Menachem Cohen serves with them. "What it comes down to is we meet people where they are at, and we provide the services they need, and HIV testing is one of the important services people need."
    THE MEANING OF YOGA - Yoga: The Art of Transformation is a visually rich art exhibit presenting the spiritual origins and historical manifestations of yoga. Having debuted at the Smithsonian Sackler Gallery in Washington D.C., the exhibit is now being shown at the San Francisco Asian Art Museum, followed by the Cleveland Museum of Art. "Yoga's techniques and goals move in and through and outside of religion in very interesting and complex ways," says Debra Diamond, an associate curator of south and southeast Asian art for the Smithsonian Institution's Freer and Sackler galleries. "There are also Hindus who live in India who think that every aspect of their life is an act of yoga."

    Nature [#3111] Leave It to Beavers A growing number of scientists, conservationists and grass-roots environmentalists have come to regard beavers as overlooked tools when it comes to reversing the disastrous effects of global warming and world-wide water shortages. Once valued for their fur or hunted as pests, these industrious rodents are seen in a new light through the eyes of this novel assembly of beaver enthusiasts and "employers" who reveal the ways in which the presence of beavers can transform and revive landscapes. Using their skills as natural builders and brilliant hydro-engineers, beavers are being recruited to accomplish everything from finding water in a bone-dry desert to recharging water tables and coaxing life back into damaged lands. duration 56:46   STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: none)

    Global Voices [#507] Putin's Kiss Nashi is an increasingly popular political youth organization in Russia with direct ties to the Kremlin. Officially, its goal is to support the current political system by creating a future elite among the brightest and most loyal Russian teenagers. But the organization also works to prevent the political opposition from spreading their views among young people.
    16-year-old Masha Drokova, a Nashi commissar and spokesperson, is an ambitious middle-class student from the outskirts of Moscow. After joining Nashi at the age of 15, she moves to the very top of the organization, and is rewarded for her dedication with a university scholarship, an apartment, and even a pro-Putin talk show.
    Everything changes when Drokova becomes acquainted with a group of liberal journalists, including popular anti-Putin reporter Oleg Kashin. At first, she remains devoted to Nashi while pursuing tentative friendships with its left-wing critics - but when Kashin is brutally beaten by "unknown perpetrators," she has a genuine change of heart and decides to take a stand.
