    Moyers & Company [#145H] Hurricanes, Capitalism & Democracy * Hurricane Sandy wreaked havoc on the East Coast, but Naomi Klein says that the tragic destruction can also be the catalyst for the transformation of politics and our economy. The author of the international bestseller The Shock Doctrine joins Bill to discuss hurricanes, climate change, and democracy. Klein has been in New York visiting the devastated areas - including those where "Occupy Sandy" volunteers are unfolding new models of relief - as part of her reporting for a new book and film on climate change and the future. "Let's rebuild by actually getting at the root causes. Let's respond by aiming for an economy that responds to the crisis both through inequality and climate change," Klein tells Bill. "You know, dream big."
    * In the same broadcast, former Federal Election Commission Chairman Trevor Potter - the lawyer who advised Stephen Colbert on setting up a super PAC - dissects the spending on the most expensive election in American history. Many voices are claiming "money didn't matter, Citizens United wasn't a factor," but Potter disagrees. "Super PACs just upped the ante," he tells Bill. "If you're a senator and you have just been elected, or heaven forbid you're up in 2 years, you're thinking I don't have time to worry about deficit reduction and the fiscal cliff. I have to raise tens of thousands of dollars every day to have enough money to compete with these new super PACs... And that means I need to be nice to a lot of billionaires who often want something from me in order to find the funding for my campaign."

    THIS WEEK in Northern California [#2407H] November 16, 2012 Guest Host: Spencer Michels.
    STATE FISCAL OUTLOOK BRIGHTENS - A new report by the Legislative Analyst's Office forecasts a boost for California's economy. The passage of Gov. Brown's Proposition 30, an upgraded credit rating for the state and predictions of a growing economy are expected to help shrink the state budget deficit.
    CAP AND TRADE LAUNCHES - California launched the country's first large-scale carbon market with the auction of pollution credits. Companies emitting over 25,000 tons in greenhouse gases must have one allowance, or credit, for each metric ton. Many see the system as a win for the environment, while critics say it's a tax on business. < br />CAMPAIGNS AND DIGITAL DATA - What do campaigns know about you? Thanks to the trail of digital data generated by increasingly on-line, networked lifestyles, political campaigns have been working to target specific voters and to develop ways to predict how they will vote.
    CONTROVERSY OVER NUDITY BAN - In San Francisco, the Board of Supervisors is considering a ban on nudity on the city's streets. Protestors say that freedom of expression is at stake, but supporters say it will help curb a public nuisance. If passed, the law would levy fines that start at $100.
    Guests: Josh Richman, Bay Area News Group; Lauren Sommer, KQED Science; Hari Sreenivasan, PBS NewsHour; and Marisa Lagos, San Francisco Chronicle.

    Nature [#3004#] An Original DUCKumentary Working with "Hummingbirds" producer Ann Prum, Nature features another popular, beautiful and fascinating bird - the duck. The story follows a wood duck family and discovers how a male and female create a bond, migrate together across thousands of miles, nurture and protect a brood of chicks and come full circle as they head to their wintering grounds. But our stars are just one of some 150 species of ducks. They come in all shapes and sizes and abilities - some are dabblers popping in and out of the surface of a glass lake and others swim with powerful webbed feet underwater. They fly through the air on short, stubby wings, traveling in large, energy-efficient formations over thousands of miles. Some are noisy and gregarious, others shy and elusive. duration 56:46   SRND51 TVPG (Secondary audio: DVI)

    Nova [#3915H] Ultimate Mars Challenge It could be NASA's last chance to set wheels down on Mars until the end of the decade: in August 2012, a rover named Curiosity touched down inside Mars' Gale Crater, carrying 10 new instruments that advanced the quest for signs that Mars might have once been suitable for life. But Curiosity's mission is risky. After parachuting through the Martian atmosphere at twice the speed of sound, Curiosity is gently lowered to the planet's surface by a "sky crane." This first-of-its-kind system has been tested on Earth, but will it work on Mars?
    With inside access to the massive team of scientists and engineers responsible for Curiosity's on-the-ground experiments, Nova is there for the exhilarating moments after Curiosity's landing - and for the spectacular discoveries to come. But no rover does it alone: Curiosity is joining a team that includes the Mars Odyssey, Express and Reconnaissance orbiters, along with the tireless Opportunity rover. As we reveal the dynamic new picture of Mars that these explorers are painting, we discover the questions raised by 40 years of roving Mars: How do we define life? How does life begin and what does it need to survive? Are we alone in the universe?

David Pogue investigates which technologies are likely to transform daily life for you -- and your grandkids. They're already taking shape in laboratories around the world -- and gadgets that once were purely science fiction are on the verge of becoming as common as the iPhones and Androids Pogue reviews every day. What technological hurdles must engineers and computer scientists overcome before robots, mind-readers and holograms are all around us? And what will it mean to us as humans if we become even more entrenched in a 24/7 digital world? duration 55:16   STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: DVI)

    Need To Know [#262H] Money Matters The election was more than a week ago, but the debate continues about the extraordinary amount of money spent during the campaign season, an estimated $6 billion. Of course, the huge increase in campaign spending follows the Supreme Court's 2010 Citizens United ruling, the 5-4 decision written by Justice Anthony Kennedy which said restrictions on independent spending by corporations and unions to support candidates violated their constitutional guarantees of free speech. In his dissent Justice John Paul Stevens warned then that the ruling threatens to undermine the integrity of elected institutions across the nation. So has it? Will it? And are there other electoral reforms we should consider? That's our focus this week with panelists including Monica Youn, David Keating, Richard Brookhiser and Scott Murphy.

    With that, the president, in his press conference, laid out his second-term agenda and sent a strong message to Republicans to find common ground and overcome the confrontation and gridlock of the past four years. The president was also peppered with questions about the resignation of CIA Director David Petraeus and the investigation of the attack on the US consulate in Benghazi, Libya. As for the looming fiscal crisis, President Obama signaled that any deficit reduction deal must include revenue increases and that he's ready to battle Congress to reach an agreement before the automatic spending cuts go into effect.
    Gwen Ifill will examine the Obama administration's second-term priorities and challenges with: Martha Raddatz of ABC News, David Wessel of The Wall Street Journal, Helene Cooper of The New York Times, and Charles Babington of the Associated Press.

Why?

The international press took notice and people were enthralled as one of the last real-life Wild West battles unfolded on the American frontier. Again and again, the small band of Indians overcame incredible odds to protect their way of life. "The Modoc War" revisits the battle scenes, and uses rare historical images and original wood cut drawings from the period. Additionally, interviews with Modoc descendants and written first-hand accounts bring the Modoc War to life. duration 56:46   STEREO TVG

    Racing The Rez For the Navajo and Hopi, running is much more than a sport, it is woven into the cultural fabric of their lives. Encouraged by their elders, many Navajos and Hopis begin running at an early age - to greet the morning sun, to prepare for a ceremony or simply to challenge themselves in the vast, southwestern landscape. In the rugged canyon lands of Northern Arizona, Navajo and Hopi cross-country runners from two rival high schools vie for the state championship while striving to find their place among their native people and the larger American culture. Win or lose, what they learn over the course of two racing seasons has a dramatic effect on the rest of their lives.
    Combining interviews with verite-style shooting, this documentary offers a rare view into the surprising complexity and diversity of contemporary reservation life, from the point of view of five teenage boys on the cusp of adulthood. It follows Ryan, Dennis, Billy, Johnny and Joyai from the classrooms to their remote, un-electrified homes, from grueling runs across canyons and mesas to their ultimate day of reckoning - the state meet - and beyond.
