    Globe Trekker [#1106] Bangladesh Holly Morris kicks off her trip in Dhaka, the capital of Bangladesh and the seventh largest city in the world. She then travels to Sunderban National Park for an encounter with Bengal tigers and a trek deep into the forest to find honey. Along the way, Holly visits a "floating" school, charms snakes, harvests tea in the hills of Sylhet, visits the ship-breaking yards in Chittagong and relaxes in the seaside resort of Cox's Bazaar near the Myanmar border. duration 57:35   STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: DVI)

    Get Off Your Knees: The John Robinson Story Born a congenital amputee, John Robinson has no hands. His arms stop at his elbows. His lower legs are attached to his hips without knees. He is 3'9'' tall. As a child, John's parents had many worries: Would he be able to go to school? Could he hold a pencil? Could he ever support himself?
    Yet, through his remarkable tenacity, talent and faith, John has succeeded in business and in building a family in a way that few may have expected from the outset. In this documentary, we get to know a man who has made his way in a world not designed for those without the dexterity of typical arms and legs - a man who has gone on to lead what many would consider an ordinary life. Yet this ordinary life is actually extraordinary when one witnesses the determination required for John to do that which others take for granted, from driving a car to playing a round of golf.
    People with disabilities are the nation's most vulnerable demographic, and the obstacles they face in everyday life can seem overwhelming. John's inspirational story teaches those of us with and without disabilities that, with the aid of a strong education and a few caring individuals, we can achieve that which may initially seem impossible.

    Moyers & Company [#142H] What Did The Debates Tell Us? * Four debates have come and gone, and in the aftermath of the pomp, points, and politics, what have we learned? And how has democracy been served? This week, two of the country's most astute political media observers - Kathleen Hall Jamieson and Marty Kaplan - join Bill to weigh in on the rhetoric and realities of two campaigns now in the home stretch, looking to make their cases by any means affordable. Jamieson is director of the Annenberg Public Policy Center at the University of Pennsylvania and the driving force behind the acclaimed online watchdog FactCheck.org. Marty Kaplan is the founding director of the Norman Lear Center at the University of Southern California's Annenberg School for Communication and Journalism.
    * Bill is later joined by Neil Barofsky, who held the thankless job of special inspector general in charge of policing TARP, the bailout's Troubled Asset and Relief Plan. Between President Obama's ineffectual proposals and Mitt Romney's loving embrace, bankers have little to fear from either administration, and that leaves the rest of America on perilously thin economic ice. Barofsky discusses the critical yet unmet need to tackle banking reform and avoid another financial meltdown. Currently a senior fellow and adjunct professor at the New York University School of Law, Barofsky is the author of Bailout: An Inside Account of How Washington Abandoned Main Street While Rescuing Wall Street.

    Going Blind This unique documentary hopes to increase public awareness of sight loss and low vision issues profoundly affecting the lives of more and more people around the world. Peabody Award winning director Joseph Lovett has glaucoma, a disease that robs 4.5 million people worldwide of their vision.
    After years of slowly losing his sight, Joe decides to take action: to investigate how people all over the country respond to vision loss. His search begins small, with people Joe meets on the streets of his hometown New York City and gradually leads him to places and people around the country, of all different ages and backgrounds. Each has a fascinating story about dealing with the vision loss caused by sight-robbing diseases, infections and accidents. This program interweaves Joe's story with that of his fellow subjects and invites us into the intimate spaces of the visually impaired and blind.
