    Globe Trekker [#1102] West Texas Zay Harding starts his journey in Austin, where he explores everything from rattlesnake hotdogs to bingo with chickens. He then heads south to San Antonio for a visit to the Alamo. Following a night in the most haunted hotel in Texas, Zay travels to the border city of El Paso. After meeting the locals, he treks into the surrounding desert to travel along the old Butterfield trail. Traveling in a 1960s Mustang, Zay embarks on a road trip along Route 66 where he takes in the stunning Palo Duro Canyon, competes in Amarillo's steak-eating challenge and concludes his trip in Glenrio, the mysterious ghost town that borders New Mexico. duration 57:45   STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: DVI)

    Digital_Man / Digital_World Only a few decades ago, computers filled entire rooms, and consumed enough electricity to power over 100 households. The Digital Equipment Corporation transformed the entire industry, making computers smaller, less expensive and more accessible. DEC's founder, Ken Olsen, led the revolution, and in the process developed innovations that became the basic principles of the Information Age. Olsen led DEC on a meteoric rise as one of the nation's largest and most successful corporations. Just as precipitously, DEC became a casualty of the industry and expectations that they had helped to create. Digital Man, Digital World presents the history of the Digital Equipment Corporation, and its lasting impact on American culture. duration 57:02   STEREO TVG

    Moyers & Company [#132H] Confronting The Contradictions of America's Past Learning from our racial past is crucial to addressing America's current ethnic tensions, but only if we confront key historical contradictions. In an encore broadcast, Khalil Muhammad helps bring these issues to light. Muhammad heads the New York Public Library's Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture, and is the author of The Condemnation of Blackness, which connects American histories of race, crime and the making of urban America to modern headlines. duration 52:46   STEREO TVG

    Inventing LA: The Chandlers and Their Times This groundbreaking documentary traces the explosive emergence of multi-ethnic, modern Los Angeles during the single-family reign of four publishers of the Los Angeles Times. Each used the newspaper to pursue distinct agendas and impossible dreams, transforming the composition and character of Southern California itself; in the process, seducing a nation and the world with a new kind of American Dream. duration 1:56:46   STEREO TVPG

    Frontline [#2707H] My Father, My Brother and Me In 2004, journalist Dave Iverson received the same news that had been delivered to his father and older brother years earlier: He had Parkinson's disease, a degenerative neurological disorder that affects about one million Americans. In this Frontline and ITVS joint production, Iverson sets off on a personal journey to explore the scientific, ethical, and political debate that surrounds Parkinson's, a disease at the center of the ongoing controversy over embryonic stem cell research. Iverson talks to scientists on the cutting edge of new cures and therapies -- not only for Parkinson's, but a number of other major neurological conditions. And he has conversations with fellow Parkinson's sufferers like actor Michael J. Fox and writer Michael Kinsley. duration 56:46   STEREO TVPG-L (Secondary audio: DVI)

    Religion & Ethics NewsWeekly [#1551Z] CATHOLICS AND PAUL RYAN - "I do not believe that the preferential option for the poor means a preferential option for big government," said Republican vice presidential candidate and Roman Catholic Paul Ryan in a recent lecture at Georgetown University. How might Catholic social teaching influence this year's campaign and election? (new segment)
    INDIA SURROGATES - In what has become a lucrative industry, clinics in India recruit impoverished women and pay them as much as $7000 to be implanted with embryos and bear children for infertile clients. As Fred de Sam Lazaro reports, some clinics implant 4 or 5 embryos to maximize the chance of pregnancy, and in cases where multiple embryos become viable pregnancies, some are aborted. University of Pennsylvania ethicist Arthur Caplan worries about where this could lead. (Originally aired September 30, 2011) < br />MORMON SINGLES CHAPEL - Leaders of the Church of Latter Day Saints say more and more young Mormons are postponing marriage for their careers or simply staying single longer. Lucky Severson reports on the Mormon Church's Crystal City Chapel in the suburbs of Washington DC, all of whose members are single, and the Church's efforts to reverse the trend by encouraging single Mormons to meet and marry.

    Inner Compass [#507] Does Sexual Orientation Equal Identity? The practice of labeling people by sexual orientation - homosexual, heterosexual, etc. - started only a century ago. At times labels can help make sense of our world, but at other times labeling individuals can be dehumanizing and can even be a form of injustice. Our sexuality need not define us, argues Jenell Williams Paris, anthropology professor at Messiah College and author of The End of Sexual Identity: Why Sex is Too Important to Define Who We Are.

      (DT25.1, 25.2, 25.3) KQET DT25 was off the air for a portion of Sunday morning, due to the transmitter taking a power hit. The signal has been restored.
