    Lafayette: The Lost Hero "Lafayette: The Lost Hero" tells the story of the Marquis de Lafayette and his quest to bring democracy to America and France, through the eyes of Sabine Renault Sabloniere, a 21st century descendant. The film traces the life and legend of this intriguing, neglected, and controversial figure, who left France at the age of 19 and fought courageously for the independence of the United States. He returns to France, risking his life to help start the French Revolution and then struggles in vain to bring democracy to his country by peaceful means. Years later, after being imprisoned for bringing freedom movements to Europe, he returns, triumphantly, for the 50th anniversary of the American revolution -- this country's first great patriotic celebration. duration 56:46   STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: none)

    Liberty Or Death Patrick Henry's impassioned plea at the second Virginia Convention of 1775, "Give me liberty or give me death," defined the American Revolution. This docu-drama captures this seminal moment in American history by balancing experts' commentary on the events preceding the second Virginia Convention with dramatic re-enactments of the historic moments that followed. Actors portraying founding fathers George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Patrick Henry and other delegates bring the convention to life as another character, convention clerk John Tazwell, narrates the unfolding action. Historians also explain the lasting significance of the convention and Henry's stirring speech. duration 56:46   STEREO TVG

    Moyers & Company [#326H] Grassroots Grow Against Greed * This Fourth of July weekend, as the US celebrates independence and democracy, Moyers & Company pays tribute to the champions of grass roots action fighting against the moneyed interests trying to buy and control government. These populists are seeking real change - not from the right or the left but from the bottom up. One of their most articulate spokesmen is writer and commentator Jim Hightower, who travels the country preaching the gospel of populism. A former congressional aide and two-term agriculture commissioner of his native Texas, he is the author of several books of progressive wit and wisdom and edits a newsletter, "The Hightower Lowdown." Hightower tells Bill, "There is a growing rebellion and an increasing awareness among different groups fighting different battle that they are connected. People are beginning to get together and see their common interest." He adds, "There is a greater power that is building up in the countryside, simmering, bubbling in different places and that's going to come together."
    * Following Hightower's conversation, a documentary spotlights the recent Rising Voices for a New Economy conference in Washington, DC, at which 1100 grass roots members of the National Domestic Workers Alliance (NDWA) and the National People's Action Together (NPA) rallied to learn organizing methods and put truth to the power of government and corporate America. According to NDWA director Ai-jen Poo, "The interests and forces that we're up against are so very powerful that we can't afford not to build a movement that is as inclusive and is broad and as deep as it can possibly be." NPA director George Goehl agrees but cautions that it means, "All of us bending towards each other. It means all of us giving up some control and some of what we would love to have be at the center of the fight so we could collectively have more power."

    Barefoot College This documentary from producer Bob Gliner examines a unique community based education program in rural India. Yet, while seemingly far removed from the American experience, it offers telling lessons for how the current debate around educational reform might be focused and curriculum transformed in the US. When we think about schools in the US, we generally think of places separated from the larger community, places where students go to learn. Like government schools in India, much of what is taught often seems to have little relationship to the problems students face in their day to day lives.
    In contrast, at Barefoot College, located in the Indian State of Rajasthan, education takes place off campus, in nearby impoverished villages, among all age groups, with a unique interdisciplinary curriculum intimately encompassing rural village life and the issues villagers must grapple with. Filled with stunning visuals, poignant and insightful interviews, this cross cultural documentary offers powerful insights not only in terms of addressing world poverty, but changing possible education outcomes here at home.

    History Detectives Special Investigations [#101H] Civil War Sabotage? It was one of the worst maritime naval disasters in US history. Officially, the death toll was 1500. Unofficially, the count may have been far higher. When it mysteriously exploded on April 27, 1865, the Mississippi steamboat USS Sultana was packed with Union soldiers. The war had ended that month; at every stop more and more men clamored to board the homeward-bound ship, which blew up mid-river. However, the story of the sinking quickly vanished from the papers. What really sank the Sultana? Was it Confederate sabotage? Securing the original investigative report and its archives allows the team to forensically examine and scientifically test theories of the boilers' failure. The team also researches the stories of a Confederate agent and spy who burned Union ships on the Mississippi and was an expert in using "coal torpedoes" and a former Union inspector's deathbed revelation. duration 56:46   STEREO TVPG

    Nature [#3001H] Siberian Tiger Quest Chris Morgan has tracked large predators in some of the wildest and most remote places on Earth.

This film features the work of Korean cameraman, Sooyong Park, who spent two years in the forest tracking and filming the world's biggest cat. Park's tracking technique was very unconventional. He dug himself into an underground pit and, incredibly, waited there for weeks at a time, hoping for a glimpse of a wild tiger.

But how was a terracotta army of this size made in less than two years using the technology of 2200 years ago? Led by archaeologist Agnes Hsu, the investigation shows that the Chinese may have used assembly lines to produce the 8,000-strong terracotta army. After the revelation of what the army really looked like when it was buried, archaeologists use biometric analysis to find out if these clay soldiers were individually modeled on living men. duration 56:46   STEREO TVPG-V (Secondary audio: none)

    America Reframed [#201] Building Babel The film follows a year in the life of Sharif El-Gamal, developer of the so-called "Ground Zero Mosque," a Muslim-led community center two blocks from the World Trade Center. With unlimited access to his home and office, the film paints a portrait of a Muslim-American businessman up against impossible odds. A passionate Brooklyn-born Muslim, Sharif El-Gamal sees Park51 as a centerpiece of his own Muslim American identity. Born of a Polish-Catholic mother and Egyptian-Muslim father, El-Gamal only turned to Islam after 9/11 shook his faith to the core, and sees Park51 as a way to give back to the Lower Manhattan community. Married to a Muslim convert and the father of two daughters, Sharif represents an Islam that remains foreign to most Americans, especially given the way the media and politicians have continued to use Park51 as a point of controversy. Despite a principle goal of helping to rebuild Lower Manhattan, opposition to the plan has been virulent and non-stop. Thousands of Americans have rallied against the prospect of a Muslim institution being constructed in such proximity to Ground Zero, and Park51 has become an internationally discussed symbol of Islam's relationship to the Western world. Building Babel follows Park51?s development through the daily experiences and struggles of the men and women trying to make it a reality. duration 1:26:46   STEREO (Secondary audio: none)
