    Global Spirit [#210] The Call of Wisdom The ancient Greeks believed there was another dimension beyond logic and reasoning and they called it Sophia, or wisdom, which they believed to be the ultimate good. In Eastern traditions, wisdom is often synonymous with the Truth, as in "the true nature of existence, " available only to those who can see beyond the ephemeral, the ever-changing. This program examines the true nature of wisdom, how it is recognized, and why our survival today as a species and a planet may depend on it. The program features Jean Shinoda Bolen, an author, Jungian analyst and activist, and Roger Walsh, a professor of psychiatry, philosophy and anthropology. These two engaging guests come together for the first time to discuss this rich topic and address a range of important questions such as: Are we now as a species, headed for wisdom or catastrophe? duration 57:18   STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: none)

    Jewish Film Showcase [#102] Carvalho's Journey A real-life 19th century American western adventure story about Solomon Nunes Carvalho, an observant Sephardic Jew born in 1815 in Charleston, South Carolina. In 1853, traveling with John Fremont's 5th Westward Expedition through Kansas, Colorado, Utah, and California, Carvalho became one of the first photographers to document the sweeping vistas and treacherous terrain of the far American West. Living alongside mountain men, Native Americans, and Mormons, Carvalho overcame enormous odds to produce beautiful art: daguerreotypes that became the lens through which the world experienced the West. The film interweaves stunning HD digital and 16mm film landscape cinematography, rare 19th century photographs, Carvalho's surviving artwork and daguerreotypes, and interviews with scholars and artists, including modern day daguerreotypist Robert Shlaer who recreates Carvalho's original daguerreotypes on location. The documentary is narrated by award winning actor Michael Stuhlbarg (Boardwalk Empire, Steve Jobs) with original music by Jamie Saft (composer, Murderball). duration 1:28:15   STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: none)

    The Blueprint: The Story of Adventist Education This program focuses on Seventh-day Adventist education, the third-largest private-school system in the US and the second-largest in the world. More than a century ago, Adventist Ellen White championed the now widely used "whole person" approach to education that encompasses body, mind and spirit. This "blueprint for education" specifically emphasizes skilled training, healthy living and community service within a safe, faith-based environment.
    This program ventures into the classrooms of a few of the nearly 1000 schools across the United States operated by Adventists. In many cases, these schools provide students sanctuary from troubled home lives, tough neighborhoods and negative influences. Profiled schools include: The Bronx-Manhattan School in New York, The Holbrook Navajo Indian School in Arizona, Spencerville Adventist Academy in Maryland, Fletcher Academy in North Carolina, Pinon Hills School in New Mexico and Columbine Christian School in Colorado. The film also features interviews with school administrators, teachers, students, historians and education pioneer Parker Palmer, author of The Courage to Teach.

    Nova [#4208] Invisible Universe Revealed 25 years ago, NASA launched one of the most ambitious experiments in the history of astronomy: the Hubble Space Telescope. In honor of Hubble's landmark anniversary, Nova tells the remarkable story of the telescope that forever changed our understanding of the cosmos and our place in it.
    From its inception through its early days, when a one-millimeter engineering blunder turned the telescope into an object of ridicule, to the five heroic astronaut missions that returned Hubble to the cutting edge of science, Nova hears from the scientists and engineers on the front line who tell the amazing Hubble story as never before. This single telescope has helped astronomers pinpoint the age of the universe, revealed the birthplace of stars and planets, advanced our understanding of dark energy and cosmic expansion, and uncovered black holes lurking at the heart of galaxies. For more than a generation, Hubble's stunning images have brought the beauty of the heavens to millions, revealing a cosmos richer and more wondrous than we ever imagined. Join Nova for the story of this magnificent machine and its astonishing discoveries.
