    Washington Week [#5704H] Seven years of campaign promises led to a showdown on the Senate floor this week as the upper chamber debated what many Republicans considered their last, best hope to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act. After hours of late-night arm-twisting by GOP leadership and the White House, three Republican senators including John McCain, who was recently diagnosed with brain cancer, voted against the so-called "skinny repeal." McCain's no vote sent audible gasps throughout the Senate chamber as Republicans figure out the best path forward.
    *Meanwhile, President Trump continued a week of public criticism of his "beleaguered" Attorney General Jeff Sessions even as Republican senators rally to Sessions' defense. Trump, angry that his attorney general recused himself from the ongoing Russia investigations, is reportedly considering appointing a new AG through a recess appointment if Sessions resigns or is fired. White House advisers are cautioning the president against taking such action.
    Robert Costa will discuss the political ramifications of the week of health care votes and Trump's harsh critique of his cabinet official with:
    Jeff Zeleny of CNN
    Nancy Cordes of CBS News
    Geoff Bennett of NPR
    *Plus, Nancy Youssef of BuzzFeed News will report on President Trump's decision to ban transgender people from serving in the U.S. military and why the policy reversal may stem from a spending bill that would provide funding for a border wall.

    Eye on the Sixties: The Iconic Photography of Rowland Scherman Famed LIFE magazine photojournalist Rowland Scherman captured some of the most transformational political, cultural and musical events of the 1960s - from the March on Washington to the first American Beatles concert to Robert F. Kennedy's ill-fated presidential campaign to Woodstock. At the sites of some of his most famous photos, Scherman reveals candid and insightful anecdotes from his storied career, reflects on his life and his legacy, and muses about his medium's relevance in the digital age, and the passage of time. Scherman also shares seldom-seen images of politicians and celebrities of the 1960s, including President Lyndon Johnson, Special Olympics founder Eunice Shriver, folk sensations Joni Mitchell and Judy Collins, tennis great Arthur Ashe, TV journalism pioneer Barbara Walters, a young Bob Dylan, and JFK with the very first Peace Corps volunteers of 1961. The program also features interviews with singer Judy Collins and legendary LIFE magazine journalist Richard B. Stolley. duration 1:28:39   STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: none)

    Summer of Love: American Experience [#1912Z] In the summer of 1967, thousands of young people from across the country flocked to San Francisco's Haight-Ashbury district to join in the hippie experience, only to discover that what they had come for was already disappearing. By 1968 the celebration of free love, music and an alternative lifestyle had descended into a maelstrom of drug abuse, broken dreams and occasional violence. Through interviews with a broad range of individuals, including actor Peter Coyote and politician Willie Brown, who lived through the summer of love, as well as police officers walking the beat, teenage runaways who left home without looking back, non-hippie residents who resented the invasion of their community and scholars who still have difficulty interpreting the phenomenon - this presentation offers a complex portrait of the notorious event that many consider the peak of the 1960s counter-culture movement. duration 56:46   STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: DVI)

    Red Dot on the Ocean: The Matthew Rutherford Story Once labeled a "youth-at-risk," 30-year-old Matt Rutherford risked it all in an attempt to become the first person to sail alone, and nonstop around North and South America. This documentary tells the story of Matt's death-defying voyage and the childhood odyssey that shaped him.
    Matt Rutherford's childhood was fraught with obstacles. He grew up in an obscure Christian cult, struggled with ADHD and learning disabilities, went to drug rehab at the age of 13, and lived on the streets and in juvenile detention. While attending a special high school, Matt discovered that he actually liked to learn and developed a passion to see the world.
    After graduating, Matt taught himself how to sail. He crossed the Atlantic alone to Europe, sailed south to Africa, and then came back across the Atlantic. Along the way he read about Ernest Shackleton and other Arctic explorers, and became obsessed with sailing the Northwest Passage - the once impassable ice-clogged waterway that links the North Atlantic and the Pacific.
    In June 2011, Matt departed Annapolis, Md., on an old, scrappy 27-foot sailboat. He spent the next 309 days alone at sea braving the icebergs of the Arctic and the treacherous waters of Cape Horn off the coast of southern Chile. Before he embarked on his solo voyage, professional sailors called him crazy and declared his proposed 27,000-mile journey "a suicide mission." But Rutherford proved them wrong. He brought back remarkable video footage as seen in the film and audio logs, raised $120,000 for charity, and entered the record books.
