    Globe Trekker [#1103] Puerto Rico Zay visits San Juan, the El Yunque National Forest, the Camuy River Caves National Park and the coffee-producing central highlands. Along the way he discovers why Puerto Rico is known as the "island of enchantment," boasting sun-kissed beaches, dramatic mountains, a rich colonial history, and great music. duration 56:40   STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: DVI)

    Moyers & Company [#115H] The Case for Old-School Faith & Politics Two movements once at the vital center of our society, liberal politics and American Christianity have gone astray, says Eric Alterman (from the left) and Ross Douthat (from the right). This week, each meets separately with Bill to discuss the implications of this wayward course on American Democracy.
    First, Eric Alterman describes the grand aspirations, ambitions, and historical ironies that prompted him to write his new book The Cause: The Fight for American Liberalism from Franklin Roosevelt to Barack Obama. He calls on liberals to regain "the fighting spirit" that characterized Franklin Roosevelt's New Deal and to put it in service of new liberal policies for the 2lst century. Liberals, he tells Moyers, have overpromised and underperformed, and it's time once again to make government credible.
    Ross Douthat, the conservative op-ed columnist for The New York Times and author of Bad Religion: How We Became a Nation of Heretics, is just as candid about how traditional and institutional Christianity has declined from a vigorous, mainstream, and bipartisan force to a polarizing, heretical combatant in the culture war. He argues that a revival of true and basic Christian principles can lead to American renewal.
    Also, can you imagine Super Grover followed by a super PAC ad? No? Neither can Bill Moyers. In a new essay at the top of the show, Moyers talks about the recent federal appeals court decision of to allow political and issue advertising on public TV and radio channels. "Just say no," Moyers urges station managers across the country - but they need your help.

    Independent Lens [#1319] Revenge of the Electric Car In 2006, thousands of new electric cars were purposely destroyed by the same auto companies that built them. Today, fewer than six years later, the electric car is back...with a vengeance. Director Chris Paine takes his film crew behind the closed doors of Nissan, GM and the Silicon Valley start-up Tesla Motors to chronicle the story of the global resurgence of electric cars. Without using a single drop of foreign oil, this new generation of car is America's future: fast, furious and cleaner than ever. This program follows the race among major car-makers to be the first, the best and to win the hearts and minds of the public around the world. It's not just the next generation of green cars that's on the line; it's the future of the automobile itself duration 1:26:46   STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: none)

    POV [#2411H] If A Tree Falls: A Story of the Earth Liberation Front This documentary explores two of America's most pressing issues -- environmentalism and terrorism -- by lifting the veil on a radical environmental group the FBI calls America's "number one domestic terrorism threat." Daniel McGowan, a former member of the Earth Liberation Front, faces life in prison for two multimillion-dollar arsons against Oregon timber companies. What turned this working-class kid from Queens into an eco-warrior? Marshall Curry provides a nuanced and provocative account that is part coming-of-age story, part cautionary tale and part cops-and-robbers thriller. duration 1:26:46   STEREO TVPG

    Religion & Ethics NewsWeekly [#1534Z] VATICAN REPORT ON US CATHOLIC NUNS - A new report criticizes an umbrella group that represents most of the Catholic nuns in the United States for "serious doctrinal problems." "I think you could compare it to a hostile takeover," says reporter, author, and Vatican observer David Gibson. Might the Leadership Conference of Women Religious simply disband and reorganize on its own?
    SHANGHAI JEWISH GHETTO - For Holocaust Remembrance Day we talk with Ilie Wacs and Deborah Strobin, a brother and sister who have written a memoir about their family's life as Jewish refugees in the Far East during World War II and their connection to the larger Jewish story of survival and endurance.
    GODLESS CHAPLAINS - Some atheists in the Army want chaplains who are also atheists. "We don't treat soldiers that are atheists as atheists. We treat them as soldiers," says Colonel Stephen Sicinski, base commander at Fort Bragg. But Captain Jason Torpy says army chaplains are "either ignorant of or hostile to nontheistic beliefs."
