    POV [#2707H] 15 to Life: Kenneth's Story Does sentencing a teenager to life without parole serve our society well? The United States is the only country in the world that routinely condemns children to die in prison. This is the story of one of those children, now a young man, seeking a second chance in Florida. At age 15, Kenneth Young received four consecutive life sentences for a series of armed robberies. Imprisoned for more than a decade, he believed he would die behind bars. Now a US Supreme Court decision could set him free. This film follows Young's struggle for redemption, revealing a justice system with thousands of young people serving sentences intended for society's most dangerous criminals. duration 56:46   STEREO TVPG

    After a rocky week, Republicans wrap up their national convention in Cleveland with Donald Trump "humbly and gratefully" accepting the party's presidential nomination. We get analysis and review of the week and look ahead as Democrats get ready to kick off their convention on Monday. Thuy Vu sits down with political strategists Sean Walsh and Mary Hughes and KQED political reporter Marisa Lagos.

    Inspiring Young Readers
    Bay Area native Gene Luen Yang is the first graphic novelist to be named the National Ambassador for Young People's Literature. Yang talks about his work and about finding identity, culture and belonging through books. With his platform, "Reading Without Walls," Yang hopes to challenge and inspire young readers to discover unfamiliar worlds through the pages of books.

    Oakland Sex Trafficking
    "We're not surprised," say some youth service providers about the recent allegations of officer sexual exploitation roiling the Oakland Police Department and other Bay Area law enforcement agencies. Many say the case is emblematic of a larger systemic problem that can plague law enforcement agencies dealing with a vulnerable population. We hear from Youth Radio's Natalie Bettendorf and Denise Tejada, who have been covering "the track," a strip of Oakland's International Boulevard known to many as the city's red-light district.

    Alive! In America's Delta [#103H] Alligator: King of the Bayou The American alligator is the largest reptile in North America and Louisiana has millions of them - from the coastal parishes to the Arkansas state line. They are so plentiful that they're hunted for their meat and hides. But for a period of time, beginning in the early 1960s, Louisiana's alligator population was in steep decline. Since then, Louisiana has instituted one of the world's most successful wildlife conservation projects to help ensure the alligator's survival. Since 1985, some 300,000 gators have multiplied to nearly 3 million today. Witness first-hand how this keystone species - and cultural icon - was brought back to viability using a combination of biological science and marketplace economics. duration 25:30   STEREO TVG

    STREAMING CHURCH SERVICES - Many churches broadcast their worship services - edited, usually, and distributed over the air or on cable. Now, more and more churches are taking advantage of streaming to present their services live, over the internet and available around the world. There are problems, such as how to include absent audiences in such rituals as communion or baptisms. But Dan Lothian reports from Dallas that many worshippers say watching a streamed service is a lot better than having no church service at all.

    Nova [#3907H] Secrets of the Sun It contains 99.9% of all the matter in our solar system and sheds hot plasma at nearly a million miles an hour. The temperature at its core is a staggering 27 million degrees Fahrenheit. It convulses, it blazes, it sings. You know it as the sun. Scientists know it as one of the most amazing physics laboratories in the universe. Now, with the help of new spacecraft and Earth-based telescopes, scientists are seeing the Sun as they never have before and even re-creating what happens at the very center of the Sun in labs here on Earth. Their work will help us understand aspects of the sun that have puzzled scientists for decades. But more critically, it may help us predict and track solar storms that have the power to zap our power grid, shut down telecommunications, and ground global air travel for days, weeks, or even longer. Such storms have happened before-but never in the modern era of satellite communication.
