    Globe Trekker [#1108] Globe Trekker Food Hour: Morocco Ben O'Donoghue starts his culinary adventures with lunch at the camel market in Casablanca, learns to cook "harira" (the soup that breaks the Ramadan fast) in the imperial city of Fes, lives with a nomadic family in the high dunes of the Western Sahara, scours the markets in Marrakesh for ingredients to make the classic "tagine," samples Berber delicacies in the High Atlas mountains and fishes for his dinner in the port of Essaouira. duration 57:38   STEREO TVRE (Secondary audio: DVI)

    Moyers & Company [#150H] What We Can Learn from Lincoln One reason so many people are disillusioned by the state of things in America - even more so after the terror in Newtown - is that our political system hasn't produced consistently good results in a long time. We've forgotten that democracy is supposed to be about addressing our problems through a political system that encourages bargaining, compromise, and progress. Except for taking us to war, showering largesse on the privileged and powerful, and courting donors instead of representing voters, Washington politics promotes gridlock, paralysis, and stalemate.
    But Bill Moyers points to a new ray of hope - not in politics, but in theaters: the movie Lincoln. This week, Pulitzer Prize-winner Tony Kushner, who wrote the film's screenplay, joins Bill for a "history lesson about politics." The two talk about finding the man inside the monument, and what Abraham Lincoln - 147 years after his death - can still teach us all about politics, compromise, and the survival of American democracy.
    "The job of the president is both to make the compromises necessary to actually have things happen in a democracy, which means compromising at a slower pace than anybody would necessarily like," Kushner tells Bill. "At the same time he has to keep telling us where we're going, what we're trying to arrive at. And I think that Obama has done an astonishing job of doing that over and over, of reminding us that government is a good thing, and that we share responsibility for one another because without that shared responsibility our own lives are destroyed."
    "You will be reminded that politics can be made to work for the good of the country," says Bill of the show. "It could even help us reduce the violence in America and make more Newtown tragedies less likely."
    Also on the show, Bill reflects on the elementary school shooting in Connecticut and its implications for our culture.

    Iranian Americans This program explores the history and lives of the Iranian American community in the United States. Beginning with the 1979 Iranian Revolution, through the mass immigration of Iranians to the U.S., the story of the Iranian Americans is a classic American immigrant story. The Iranian Americans have overcome hardship, including discrimination, to become a great voice in the chorus of the American melting pot. duration 56:46   STEREO TVPG

    First Freedom: The Fight for Religious Liberty The right of freedom of religion in the United States instigated a fundamental shift in human history. No other aspect of the American Revolution was as intrepid in its own time, or ultimately, as influential worldwide. This program profiles the generation of colonial Americans who raised the ideal of religious freedom to the level of a fundamental human right. And it honors those founders who could not rest until it was carved into law. duration 1:26:46   STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: none)

    Heat and Harvest: Impact of Climate Change On California September 28, 2012 From the vast fields of fruits and nuts in the Central Valley to the waterways of the Sacramento Delta - and many growing centers in between - climate change is beginning to take its toll on California agriculture. According to a recent report commissioned by the state EPA and Energy Commission, yields in key crops are expected to drop significantly over the coming decades as climate change alters key growing conditions.
    The list of crops most directly affected under business as usual conditions, assuming a 2 degree warming by 2050, reads like a walk through a supermarket produce section: yields of citrus crops in the San Joaquin Valley are expected to drop about 18% by 2050; grapes about 6%; cherries and other orchard crops about 9%. But this is not just a look into the state's future. California's farms, often called the nation's breadbasket, are already feeling the effects of the trifecta of converging forces prompted by climate change: shorter cold seasons, longer seasons of extreme heat, and dwindling water supplies.
    This multi-platform collaboration of the Center for Investigative Reporting and KQED's science and environment reporting teams examines how climate change is already playing out in one of California's largest industries. Three documentary reports are woven into one comprehensive program.
