    Robert Bly: A Thousand Years of Joy ROBERT BLY: A THOUSAND YEARS OF JOY presents a moving portrait of one of America's most celebrated and revolutionary poets of the last half-century. The film showcases Bly's development as a writer with an unswerving belief in the importance of poetry both to his own life and to American culture in general.

    Washington Week [#5711] For the second week in a row, President Trump has bucked the Republican Party and made a deal with Democrats in Congress. The president says he'll work with Democratic Leaders Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi to make sure undocumented immigrants brought to this country as children are protected from deportation after the phase-out of DACA. In return, he wants stepped-up border security.
    *Once again, Mr. Trump's conservative base is seething.
    *Earlier in the week, the president invited several vulnerable Democrats to the White House for a bipartisan dinner to discuss tax reform, one of the president's top priorities. Could another deal with Democrats be on the horizon?
    *Republicans aren't the only ones on Capitol Hill questioning their ideology. A health care divide is growing in the Democratic Party after independent Sen. Bernie Sanders introduced a single-payer insurance bill he calls "Medicare for All." Just 17 senators have signed on to the proposal so there is no chance it will become law this term. But will universal health care be a new litmus test for Democrats in 2018 and beyond?

    America Reframed [#511] Night School Every year, over a million students drop out of high school. They may complete their graduate equivalency degrees, but then they discover they're still struggling to get good jobs.

NIGHT SCHOOL is an intimate look at a year in the lives of three students: a single father trying to make abetter life for his young daughter, an older woman looking to complete the schooling she abandoned almost 40 years before, and a young woman who needs her diploma to enroll in nursing school. duration 1:26:46   STEREO (Secondary audio: none)
