    Locked Out In the wind-swept sands of California's Mojave Desert sits a small town called Boron, population 2000. It is home to one of the largest borates mines in the world. The mine is owned by Rio Tinto, a British-American multinational company, whose net earnings in 2009 were nearly $5 billion dollars. This company has faced lawsuits by communities around the world over distribution of their way of life and pollution of their environment. In the fall of 2009, when the ILWU Local 30 miners' contract expired, Rio Tinto decided to drastically cut the miners' pay and benefits. But the workers rejected this and the company retaliated by locking out the workers on January 31, 2010. For 107 days the miners and their families stood up to Rio Tinto. This is their story duration 58:30   STEREO TVG

    Red Tail On August 19, 2005 Roy Koch, along with 4,400 airline mechanics, custodians, and cleaners, went on strike against Northwest Airlines, the fourth largest airline in the world. Northwest, otherwise known as "The Red Tail" by its employees, wanted to lay off 53% of their union and outsource their jobs. What followed was a 444-day strike that would end with 4,000 union members out of work, including Roy. Instead of being left in the wake of this battle, Roy and his daughter Melissa (co-director of The Red Tail with Dawn Mikkelson) set on a journey to meet the worker to whom Roy's job was outsourced in China. The journey provides a renewed sense of purpose for Roy, and while Melissa wants to get answers to his plight, her determination as a filmmaker is always tempered by her love as a daughter. The film interweaves Roy and Melissa's search for connection in China with the premeditated downfall of Northwest Airlines. This downfall serves a vibrant example of the dangers of our current economic system, and casts a spotlight on the future of the working class.

    This American Land [#205] Bison Homecoming, Preserving Tribal Languages, Peregrine Protection, Soaring with Paragliders Bison Homecoming: The buffalo are back! One hundred years after Native American Michael Pablo sent his captive bison herd to Canada to help preserve the dwindling species, dozens of their direct descendants were released into the bison herd on the American Prairie Reserve in northern Montana. The World Wildlife Fund has been collaborating with the American Prairie Reserve to help restore the grasslands habitat for the bison, birds, and other important native species that roamed the region when Lewis and Clark arrived in 1805.
    Preserving Tribal Languages: The passion of tribal elders and 21st century video technology are merging to bring new life to the Ojibwe language. Using "home movies" that depict everyday scenarios, experts at the University of Minnesota-Duluth are helping new generations learn and appreciate the language and culture.
    Peregrine Protection: Peregrine falcons are making a comeback-in some most unusual places. With help from bird lovers in Iowa, this once nearly extinct raptor has a new place to call home-atop an Iowa skyscraper! Once nearly wiped out by DDT, local falconers and the state Department of Natural Resources helped design a nest box that's keeping peregrine parents safe and cozy, and helping provide for a healthy new generation.
    Soaring with Paragliders: Jumping off a cliff has never been so spectacular! Daredevils in Oregon use thermal currents in a sort of "yacht race in the sky." 160 pilots joined the "Rat Race" in the intricate sport of paragliding. Their only source of power is the thermal lift from hot air. Even the crew of "Oregon Field Guide" at Oregon Public Broadcasting got in on the act during this breathtaking event.
