    Whispers of Angels: A Story of the Underground Railroad In the first half of the 19th century, the Eastern Line of the Underground Railroad functioned to funnel fugitive slaves from their lives in captivity to freedom in the North. A corridor of courage existed from Maryland's eastern shore through the border state of Delaware and into Pennsylvania. Two men formed an extraordinary relationship that successfully helped to free thousands of slaves. Thomas Garrett, a white Quaker abolitionist in Wilmington, Delaware and William Still, a black son of slaves in Philadelphia, (along with Harriet Tubman and many others) heroically risked their own freedom for that of others. Actors Edward Asner and Blair Underwood respectively play these roles in dramatic reenactments in this documentary, which highlights unique racial cooperation not seen again until the 1960's in America. The program includes dramatic reenactments of escapes, trials, slave auctions and clandestine meetings. duration 59:20   STEREO TVG

    Abolitionists: American Experience, The [#101] The Abolitionists, Part One Shared beliefs about slavery bring together Angelina Grimke, the daughter of a Charleston plantation family, who moves north and becomes a public speaker against slavery; Frederick Douglass, a young slave who becomes hopeful when he hears about the abolitionists; William Lloyd Garrison, who founds the newspaper The Liberator, a powerful voice for the movement; Harriet Beecher Stowe, whose first trip to the South changes her life and her writing; and John Brown, who devotes his life to the cause. The abolitionist movement, however, is in disarray and increasing violence raises doubts about the efficacy of its pacifist tactics. duration 56:46   STEREO TVPG-VL (Secondary audio: none)

    Religion & Ethics NewsWeekly [#1619] PRISONS FOR PROFIT - Louisiana has the highest rate of incarceration of any state in the nation with 1 in every 86 adults behind bars. As Lucky Severson reports, to contain the costs of imprisoning so many individuals, the state has outsourced the operating of many prisons to local sheriffs and others who are given a per diem payment for each prisoner. Critics say one effect of this is to give sheriffs an incentive to expand their prison populations and keep their costs as low as possible.
    WOMEN CATHOLIC PRIESTS - In the past decade more than 100 women have been "ordained" as Catholic priests, although the Vatican prohibits the ordination of women and considers the act a grave offense against the church, punishable by excommunication. Saul Gonzalez reports on the group called Roman Catholic Women Priests and interviews one of them, Jennifer O'Malley, who says that her excommunication was "a consequence of doing what God has called me to do."

    Independent Lens [#1311] Have You Heard from Johannesburg? - The Bottom Line This mini-series chronicles the unprecedented international movement of citizen activists who fought for three decades to bring down the brutal, racist system of apartheid in South Africa when their governments would not. This is the story of the first-ever international grassroots campaign to successfully use economic pressure to help bring down a government. Recognizing the apartheid regime's dependence on its financial connections to the West, citizens all over the world, from employees of Polaroid to a General Motors director, from student account-holders in Barclay's Bank to consumers who boycott Shell gas, all refuse to let business with South Africa go on as usual. Boycotts and divestment campaigns bring the anti-apartheid movement into the lives and communities of people around the world, helping everyday people understand and challenge Western economic support for apartheid. Faced with attacks at home and growing chaos in South Africa, international companies pull out in a mass exodus, causing a financial crisis in the now-isolated South Africa and making it clear that the days of the apartheid regime are numbered. duration 56:46   STEREO TVPG-V (Secondary audio: none)

    Independent Lens [#1312] Have You Heard from Johannesburg? - Free at Last This mini-series chronicles the unprecedented international movement of citizen activists who fought for three decades to bring down the brutal, racist system of apartheid in South Africa when their governments would not. Diving into the heart of the conflict, South Africans tell the story of the most important effort in the anti- apartheid campaign of the 80's: the alliance that brought together freedom fighters in South Africa as never before. A mass movement gains unprecedented momentum when three generations of resistance fighters band together as The United Democratic Front (UDF). Faced with growing international isolation, the apartheid government tries to win allies and convince the world of the merit of its piecemeal reforms even as it struggles to suppress open revolt, at times using savage secret tactics. The UDF protests climax in a fierce campaign of defiance, and internationally, Nelson Mandela becomes a household name as the campaign to free him ignites a worldwide crusade. Caught between an unstoppable internal mass movement and ongoing international pressure, the apartheid regime is finally forced to the negotiating table and at last lifts the decades-long bans on the ANC. After 27 years in prison, Nelson Mandela is released, sparking a global celebration as he tours the world to thank all. After 30 years in exile, Oliver Tambo is finally able to return to South Africa. But the struggle has taken a heavy toll on him, and he will die one year before his comrade, Nelson Mandela, is elected the first black president of a democratic South Africa. duration 56:46   STEREO TVPG-V (Secondary audio: none)

    • Mon 11/03/14: Work on KQED Plus tower (DT54)

      Another station needs to do maintenance on its equipment on the tower on Monument Peak, requiring that we switch our DT54 Over the Air signal from the main antenna to the auxiliary when the work starts, then back to the main antenna at the conclusion. These switches should cause momentary outages only, and most receivers […]

      UPDATE: This problem has been resolved, and the OTA signal for the DT54 channels restored. (DT54.1 through 54.5) KQED Plus’ Over the Air transmission is currently off air via our KQEH transmitter on Monument Peak northeast of San Jose. Technicians are working on the problem. No current estimate regarding how long this will exist. We […]
