  • 12:00 am
    Global Voices [#701] Miss Nikki and the Tiger Girls This film mirrors the remarkable change that has taken place in Myanmar (Burma) since shooting began over two years ago. Through its exploration of 5 young women breaking free of tradition in their search for an original voice, it provides a powerful metaphor for a country suddenly thrust onto the world stage. duration 53:24   STEREO (Secondary audio: none)
  • 1:00 am
    Independent Lens [#1603] Brakeless On April 25, 2005, a West Japan Railway (West JR) commuter train crashed into an apartment building and killed 107 people. Afterward, an official report concluded the cause of the accident was over-speeding when the train's driver tried to make up an 80-second delay. What made the train's driver risk so many lives for an 80-second delay? "Brakeless" looks at Japanese society and asks if it is bound to the pursuit of efficiency at all costs. Have the national virtues of punctuality and loyalty to protocol become societal impediments and even dangers to the people of Japan? By Kyoko Miyake. duration 56:46   STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: none)
  • 2:00 am
    Johnny Cash's Bitter Tears Based on Antonino D'Ambrosio's book A Heartbeat and a Guitar: Johnny Cash and the Making of Bitter Tears, this film tells the story behind Cash's lost Native American-themed concept album and his unique collaboration with folk artist Peter Lafarge. With the still largely unknown recording, Cash placed himself in the middle of the fervent social upheavals gripping the nation in the mid-1960s; facing censorship and an angry backlash from radio stations, DJs and fans for speaking out on behalf of Native people, Cash decided to fight back. The film also chronicles the reimagining of Cash's highly controversial 1964 record on its 50th anniversary, as recorded at Nashville's historic Sound Emporium Studios by such artists as Kris Kristofferson, Steve Earle, Emmylou Harris, Norman Blake, Nancy Blake, Rhiannon Giddens, Gillian Welch, Dave Rawlings, and The Milk Carton Kids, working with album producer Joe Henry and legendary studio musicians Dennis Crouch, Patrick Warren, and Jay Bellerose. duration 56:46   STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: none)

Lewis has written for GQ, The Washington Post, Politico and many more. Previously, Lewis worked as a senior contributor for The Daily Caller and a columnist for AOL's Politics Daily. He has been named one of the "50 Best Conservative Columnists" by RightWingNews for the past four years. duration 26:46   STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: none)

  • 5:00 am
    Nature [#3112H] The Gathering Swarms This program looks at some of the most extraordinary swarms on the planet, including a view from inside a locust swarm, mayflies along the Mississippi, 17-year cicadas, and brine fly hatches over Lake Victoria. Superswarms of finch-like quelea in Africa merit attempts at control through assaults on their roosts, while aggressive swarms of silver carp in North American seem able to overcome any kind of restraint. Dangerous swarms of killer bees, however, can be controlled to the point that they can be worn as a human bee suit. But beyond the power of sheer numbers, increasingly complex and organized swarms eventually give rise to swarm intelligence that allows complex decisions to be made. duration 56:46   SRND51 TVPG (Secondary audio: DVI)

    Victorian Slum House [#104#] The 1890s Enter the 1890s, when mass manufacturing and social reform offer a bit of hope for some of the residents, while others are plagued by a water shortage that dashes hopes for a promising laundry business. duration 56:46   STEREO TVPG
  • 7:00 am
    Doc World [#114] Out Run As leader of the world's only LGBT political party, Bemz Benedito dreams of being the first transgender woman in the Philippine Congress. But in a predominantly Catholic nation, rallying for LGBT representation in the halls of Congress is not an easy feat. Bemz and her eclectic team of queer political warriors must rethink traditional campaign strategies to amass support from unlikely places. Taking their equality campaign to small-town hair salons and regional beauty pageants, the activists mobilize working-class trans hairdressers and beauty queens to join the fight against their main political opponent, a homophobic evangelical preacher, and prove to the Filipino electorate that it's time to take the rights of LGBT people seriously. But as outsiders trying to get inside the system, will they have to compromise their political ideals in order to win? Culminating on election day, OUT RUN provides a unique look into the challenges LGBT people face as they transition into the mainstream and fight for dignity, legitimacy, and acceptance across the globe. duration 56:46   STEREO (Secondary audio: none)
