    America Reframed [#508] Vegas Baby Some think an in-vitro fertilization contest sounds crazy, but countless Americans desperate to start a family believe this social media experiment is their only hope. This film follows several aspiring parents who desperately want to have a baby but are struggling with infertility and the high cost of treatments. They place themselves in the hands of a Las Vegas doctor and his annual contest, which offers a prize of a free round of in-vitro fertilization with no guarantee of success. Contestants post their video entries on YouTube, counting on the votes of strangers to make their dreams of parenthood come true. duration 1:26:46   STEREO (Secondary audio: none)

    The Committee This program chronicles the actions of the little-known Florida Legislative Investigation Committee (also known as the Johns Committee) that existed between 1956-1965.
    The committee was formed in 1956 in response to the Brown vs. Board of Education Supreme Court decision and amidst wide-spread anti-Communist fears in the country. Its initial targets were civil rights activists and members of the NAACP who were pushing for desegregation in Florida. In 1961, Florida Senator and Committee Chairman Charley Johns shifted the focus from civil rights activists to Communist sympathizers and homosexual teachers and students at state universities. During its existence, the Committee was successful in firing or expelling more than 200 suspected gay and lesbian students and teachers throughout Florida.
    Through archival footage and photos, and interviews with former students Rev. Ruth Jensen-Forbell and Chuck Woods, and retired police officer John Tileston, Jr., the documentary highlights the scare tactics used by the Johns Committee in its attempt to root out homosexuality and Communism on state campuses. Chuck Woods - who had been interrogated by John Tileston, Jr. as a student at the time - reunites with him publicly for the first time in 50 years to discuss what happened during that dark period in the state's history.

    Erie: The Canal That Made America The Erie Canal, one of the earliest transcendent tales of the American experience and an endeavor first scoffed at as nothing more than a ditch, became the nation's first great technical innovation, a gateway to prominence, and the eighth wonder of the world. This documentary marks the bicentennial of the start of construction of the Erie Canal when surveyors and excavators began linking the young United States' east to its west in 1817 and depicts how a young nation broke through with its first great crusade of ingenuity by willing an impossible-to-build, 363 mile man-made waterway to the American frontier. Once the waters of the Great Lakes were wed with the Atlantic Ocean, the canal helped create what America now knows as the Empire State and propelled New York City into the role of America's leading port and economic hub. But the 200 years of the Erie's existence is more than a New York story. The Erie Canal is a defining saga of immigration and American culture. Farmers and new citizens poured their lives into communities along what was once known as "Clinton's Ditch." We learn how six presidents, including Washington, Jefferson and Theodore Roosevelt, are linked to the canal's destiny; though it would be a wily New York politician, DeWitt Clinton, who championed its construction and ensured that it would become the canal that made America. duration 56:46   STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: none)

    American War Stories: Vietnam [#101] Escalation Escalation focuses on the growing U.S. involvement in Southeast Asia from the mid-50's and early 60's, a time when America sent 'military assistance and advice' to a beleaguered South Vietnam increasingly under attack by the Communist North. American involvement escalated dramatically after the first combat Marines arrived in 1965 and the bombing campaign known as Rolling Thunder began. Through first-hand accounts of the men and women who were there, the documentary explores how they flew the planes, cruised up the Mekong Delta, and slogged through the jungles and rice paddies to try to locate an elusive enemy. Veterans of the rear echelon describe how they supplied the mountains of materiel necessary to support the growing forces. Escalation also explores the new tactics our military used in this war to fight an almost unseen enemy, including the same guerilla tactics they employed, and embracing the groundbreaking technology of helicopter warfare. duration 56:47   STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: none)

    Yanks Fight The Kaiser: A National Guard Division in WWI This documentary employs archival photographs, silent movies, period newsreels and German war footage to piece together the story of one National Guard unit's contributions to the "War to End all Wars." The 26th "Yankee" Division, comprised of citizen-soldiers from all six New England states, arrived in France in the fall of 1917, ill-equipped and untrained. Their previous combat experience took place on the Mexican border, where they tried - unsuccessfully - to defeat Pancho Villa's army. Over the course of four months, the French trained the Americans to survive the rigors of trench warfare. Ultimately, this relatively inexperienced regiment played a key role in every major battle of the war, fighting alongside General Pershing's three veteran army divisions. duration 56:46   STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: none)
