    Shakespeare Uncovered [#101H] Macbeth with Ethan Hawke Ethan Hawke invites viewers to join him in his quest to play Shakespeare's murderous Thane of Cawdor by uncovering the true story that served as inspiration, immersing himself in some of the most memorable and innovative productions and discovering Shakespeare's extraordinary insights into the criminal mind. duration 55:46   STEREO TV14 (Secondary audio: DVI)

  • 3:00 am
    America Reframed [#113] All Me: The Winfred Rembert Story With his intensely autobiographical paintings depicting the day-to-day existence of African Americans in the segregated South, Winfred Rembert has preserved an important, if often disturbing, chapter of American history. His indelible images of toiling in the cotton fields, singing in church, dancing in juke joints, or working on a chain gang are especially powerful, not just because he lived every moment, but because he experienced so much of the injustice and bigotry they show as recently as the 1960s and 70s. Now in his sixties, Rembert has developed a growing following among collectors and connoisseurs, and enjoyed a number of tributes and exhibitions of his work. The artist relives his turbulent life, abundantly visualized by his extensive paintings and, in a series of intimate reminiscences, shows us how even the most painful memories can be transformed into something meaningful and beautiful. A glowing portrait of how an artist, and his art, is made, the documentary is also a triumphant saga of race in contemporary America. duration 1:26:46   STEREO (Secondary audio: none)

    Sousa on the Rez: Marching to the Beat of a Different Drum Native American music may not conjure images of tubas, trumpets and John Phillip Sousa marches. Yet this vibrant musical tradition has been a part of Native American culture for more than 100 years. This program traces the origins of the 4 remaining multi-generational, community-based tribal bands: the Iroquois Indian Band from upstate New York, the Fort Mojave Tribal Band from Needles, Calif., the Zuni Pueblo Band from northwestern New Mexico and the Navajo Nation Band from Arizona. Combining profiles of contemporary bands with fresh historical research, it offers an unexpected and engaging picture of this little-known aspect of the Native music scene. duration 26:46   STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: none)

    Global Voices [#513] 74 Square Meters Iselsa, Kathy, tribal leader Ivan, and 150 other marginalized families from Valparaiso, Chile, are chosen to participate in a social experiment that moves them into a middle-class neighborhood. But their new neighbors consider them delinquents who would endanger the neighborhood. Filmed over four years, this doc explores what happens when two worlds collide and looks at the struggles of attaining one's dreams. duration 53:42   STEREO

    AfroPop: The Ultimate Cultural Exchange [#501] A Lot Like You Eliaichi Kimaro is a mixed-race, first-generation American with a Tanzanian father and Korean mother. When her retired father moves back to Tanzania, Eliaichi begins a project that evocatively examines the intricate fabric of multiracial identity, and grapples with the complex ties that children have to the cultures of their parents. Kimaro decides to document her father's path back to his family and Chagga culture. In the process, she learns more deeply about the heritage that she took for granted as a child. Yet as she talks to more family members, especially her aunts, she uncovers a cycle of sexual violence that resonates with her work and life in the United States. When Kimaro speaks with her parents about the oppression that her aunts face, she faces a jarring disconnect between immigrant generations on questions of patriarchy and violence. duration 56:46   STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: none)

But as Lucky Severson reports, guidelines for the use of this technology are lacking, leaving the questions who should be tested, and how much should parents be told.
    LILLIAN DANIEL: A popular United Church of Christ pastor says she is fed up with atheists and everyone else who criticizes the Christian church, among them the growing number who say they are "spiritual but not religious." Daniel tells Bob Abernethy what she thinks is important is a church where "we worship a God who invented us, not the other way around."

    News Panel:
    STATE OF THE STATE: Gov. Jerry Brown delivered more good news in an upbeat State of the State address, thanking lawmakers, voters and others for making tough decisions to balance the budget. The governor described his long term vision for revamping education funding and revising the state's environmental law. He also promoted the construction of high-speed rail and a controversial plan to build tunnels to transport water from north to south.
    OAKLAND CONSULTANT STIRS CONTROVERSY: The Oakland City Council approved the hiring of police consultant William Bratton after a heated meeting that drew hundreds from the community and lasted more than 9 hours. Previously chief of the LAPD and NYPD, Bratton is known for aggressive tactics, including the highly controversial "stop and frisk" policy which has raised concerns over civil rights and racial profiling. Oakland is the most violent city in the state, with a 23% increase in serious crime in 2012.
    APPLE EARNINGS: Apple Inc. reported a $13 billion profit in the fourth quarter of 2012, bringing last year's total profit to over $40 billion. But the maker of the highly popular iPads and iPhones found investors still hedging their bets, with a marked drop in the price of the company's stock.
    Guests: John Myers, News10 KXTV ABC Sacramento; Matthai Kuruvila, San Francisco Chronicle; and Jolie O'Dell, VentureBeat.
    SFJAZZ CENTER OPENING: The new SFJAZZ Center opened this week to rave reviews with all-star performances and celebrity appearances, including Bill Cosby.

    Moyers & Company [#203H] What's Fueling The Modern Abortion Debate? * This year marks the 40th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, the Supreme Court decision that overturned many federal and state restrictions on a woman's right to an abortion. But while polls show that most Americans support the decision, and that a majority - for the first time - believe abortion should be legal in all or most cases, anti-abortion forces show no sign of relenting. A study by the Guttmacher Institute reported that state legislatures passed 92 provisions restricting a woman's access to reproductive health care in 2011 - a number four times higher than the previous year.
    This week, Bill discusses the changing face of the reproductive rights movement and those it serves - as well as the success of social conservatives on the abortion front - with Jessica Gonzalez-Rojas, Executive Director of the National Latina Institute for Reproductive Health, and Lynn Paltrow, founder and Executive Director of National Advocates for Pregnant Women.
    * In a second segment, Bill talks to US Representative Peter Welch (D-VT) on the bipartisan bill to repeal the $500 million mysterious Congressional giveaway to the drug company Amgen.
