    Richard Bangs' Adventures with Purpose "Morocco: Quest for the Kasbah" For centuries, Kasbahs - the walled residential quarters around Moroccan cities - served as a refuge for African, Arab, Jewish and European traders, pirates and holy men traveling on ancient caravan routes. Today, these Kasbahs exemplify Morocco's determination to guard and preserve their rich multiculturalism. In his latest Adventures With Purpose special, adventurer Richard Bangs travels to Morocco on a quest for the modern-day equivalent of the Kasbah. Bangs begins his journey in Marrakesh, where he dips down to the seashore, travels over the mountains to Ouarzazate and treks to the desert on the country's far eastern border. Then, he works his way up to Fes, far north to Tangier, and back to Rabat, ending in the city of Casablanca. duration 56:46   STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: DVI)

    Nature [#2412H] Dogs That Changed The World, Pt. 2 - Dogs by Design Part two examines the relationship between humans and dogs. Some working dogs are able to use their skills to perform tasks they were bred for; there are still jobs today for herders, hunters and guard dogs. But as we multiply and transform the many breeds of dogs, honing their looks and their sizes, we also change our relationship with them, and theirs with us. duration 56:10   SRND51 TVG

    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

    This American Land [#203] Ferrets and Prairie Dogs, Hidden Gems, Follow the Water, Island Fires Ferrets and Prairie Dogs: After being nearly wiped out in the early 20th century, the black- footed ferret is making a comeback. It's taken a complicated conservation effort and a captive breeding program to restore this species to the Great Plains. The health of the ferret is tied directly to the success of prairie dogs- animals that have also had plenty of run-ins with humans. Keeping these two playful, adorable species in good shape is also helping save 130 unique plants and animals in this North American prairie ecosystem. < br />Hidden Gems: Whether you are a hiker, skier, or mountain biker, there is plenty to treasure in an area of the Rocky Mountains known as Hidden Gems. A plan that's been 11 years in the making would protect this area as wilderness, creating more habitat corridors for wildlife and protecting these areas from development, motorized vehicles, and unauthorized trail-building. Supporters have worked hard to make sure that the needs of all outdoor lovers are considered. Join us as we hit the trails!
    Follow the Water: If scientists want to understand drought, floods, and water supplies, they have to follow the water-every drop of it! At Penn State University, researchers are documenting the flow of water, using tools like infrared lasers and other sophisticated sensors. But to get all the data they need there's some old-fashioned skills necessary too, like climbing trees to collect leaves and branches. These water sleuths will be able to help planners predict changes triggered by accelerating climate change.
    Island Fires: Martha's Vineyard is known for water, not fire. That's why some might be surprised that "prescribed burns," a few dozen acres at a time, really boil down to good ecological housekeeping. Ridding areas of the island of flammable shrubbery before it ignites by itself is actually a good way to re-charge the landscape. The ash that's left behind from the fire is a natural fertilizer, giving plants lots of energy. And those controlled burns also give residents peace of mind.

    Moyers & Company [#133H] Nuns, Faith, and Politics Weeks before Republican Paul Ryan was selected to run for vice president, Sister Simone Campbell - who heads Network, a Catholic policy and lobbying group - hit the road to protest the so-called "Ryan budget" recently passed by the House of Representatives. She and some of her sister nuns rolled across the heartland on a bus trip designed to arouse public concern over what the Ryan plan would mean for social services in America, especially its slashing of programs for the poor. Sister Simone says his budget is inconsistent with Catholic social teaching. The US Conference of Catholic Bishops agrees.
    But other Catholics say Sister Simone and the nuns have crossed the line, becoming too outspoken and political. Robert Royal, editor in chief of The Catholic Thing and founder of the Faith & Reason Institute, believes that issues of economic inequality are being oversimplified. Royal says the focus should be on creating a more dynamic economy for all.

    Washington Week [#5208H] * Gwen Ifill and the Washington Week team are traveling to Florida this week to cover the Republican National Convention. Republicans will be gathering in Tampa to officially nominate Mitt Romney as the party's candidate for president and to kick-off the final push to defeat President Barack Obama in November.
    * The former Massachusetts governor had planned to spend this week campaigning on his vision for America and talking about how he would create jobs, bolster the economy and reduce the national debt. But Romney's message was drowned out by a fellow Republican running for the US Senate in Missouri. Rep. Todd Akin's controversial remarks about rape and abortion outraged liberals as well as many conservatives. Romney and members of the GOP leadership have called on Akin to step aside, but the 6-term House member remains defiant and has vowed to stay in the Senate race until the end. Will the issue of abortion be a factor in the fall and could it help or hurt the Romney-Ryan ticket?
    * The presidential race remains a virtual tie with President Obama gaining a slight lead since Romney tapped Wisconsin Rep. Paul Ryan to be his running mate. Ryan enjoys tremendous support among the party base, but can he rally reluctant Republicans who question Romney's conservative credentials?
    * Florida Senator Marco Rubio, a one-time vice presidential contender and a tea party favorite will introduce Mitt Romney before he accepts his nomination. Rubio is among a roster of the party's future stars scheduled to speak including New Jersey Governor Chris Christie and South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley.
    Joining Gwen in Florida with analysis of the 2012 presidential race: Dan Balz of The Washington Post; John Dickerson of Slate Magazine and CBS News; Beth Reinhard of National Journal; and Amy Walter of ABC News.

    Afghanistan: The Surge If you want to know why the Afghanistan war has been so frustrating and seemingly without progress, watch this film. In it we see a platoon of skilled, motivated Marines filled with the best of intentions sent to a remote outpost to eliminate Taliban influence. It didn't work out that way. The Taliban didn't stand and fight. Instead, using simple IEDs, they crippled Marine mobility and kept Marines hemmed into a narrow valley while the Taliban ran things from its untouchable headquarters only eight miles from the Marine outpost. At a time when the Afghanistan war will be a central part of the presidential election, this film can be a part of that conversation. duration 1:56:46   STEREO TVPG

    Long Road Home Exploring the impact of wartime Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), this program offers compelling stories of Pittsburgh-area military veterans of Vietnam, Korea and World War II still coming to terms with the emotional wounds of war. It explores successful therapies and documents the promising research underway at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center, where doctors study the sleep and brain patterns of PTSD sufferers and examine the reasons why women are twice as likely as men to develop the disorder. The film concludes on a hopeful note, with a visit to a weekend retreat for veterans dealing with PTSD and combat stress. United by their experiences, the former servicemen and women discuss their feelings, their struggles in civilian life, their need for closure and their optimism for the future. duration 58:46   STEREO TVPG
