    Shakespeare Uncovered [#104H] Henry IV & Henry V with Jeremy Irons Jeremy Irons (who stars as Henry IV in the Great Performances film adaptation) uncovers the enduring appeal of Shakespeare's "history plays," from the facts of English history to the father-son drama that Shakespeare created. He discloses what Shakespeare's sources were - and how he distorted them. He invites the viewer behind the scenes at the filming of some of the most important sequences in the new Great Performances adaptations of both plays, starring Irons, with Tom Hiddleston as Prince Hal. duration 55:46   STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: DVI)

    In Search of Shakespeare [#104] For All Time In the final episode, Michael Wood examines Shakespeare's life in the era of King James I. He unearths Shakespeare's neighborhood in London and visits the current queen's robe-makers for evidence of Shakespeare's role in the royal coronation. Shakespeare's world is transformed in 1605 by the Gunpowder Plot, a Jacobean September 11. The entertainment industry responded, and Shakespeare contributed Macbeth, a daring play about the murder of a king. Finally, Wood follows Shakespeare back to Warwickshire and looks at the riddle of Shakespeare's will and its strange bequest to his wife, Anne. duration 56:32   STEREO TVPG

    America Reframed [#120] 51 Birch Street Documentary filmmaker Doug Block had every reason to believe his parent's 54-year marriage was a good one. So he isn't prepared when, just a few months after his mothers' unexpected death, his 83-year old father, Mike, phones to announce that he's moving to Florida to live with "Kitty", his secretary from 40 years before. Always close to his mother and equally distant from his father, he's stunned and suspicious.
    When Mike and Kitty marry and sell the longtime family home, Doug returns to suburban Long Island with camera in hand for one last visit. And there, among the lifetime of memories being packed away forever, he discovers 3 large boxes filled with his moms' daily diaries going back 35 years.
    Realizing he has only a few short weeks before the movers come and his dad will be gone for good, the veteran documentarian sticks around, determined to investigate the mystery of his parents' marriage. Through increasingly candid conversations with family members and friends, and constantly surprising diary revelations, Doug finally comes to peace with two parents who are far more complex and troubled than he ever imagined.
    Both unexpectedly funny and heartbreaking, 51 Birch Street is the first-person account of Block's unpredictable journey through a whirlwind of dramatic life-changing events: the death of his mother, the uncovering of decades of family secrets, and the ensuing reconciliation with his father. What begins as his own intimate, autobiographical story, soon evolves into a broader meditation on the universal themes of love, marriage, fidelity and the mystery of family.
    51 Birch Street spans 60 years and 3 generations, and weaves together hundreds of faded snapshots, 8mm home movies and two decades of verit?footage. The result is a timeless tale of what can happen when our most fundamental assumptions about family are suddenly called into questio"

From almost fatal obstacles to spiritual epiphanies, these men and women describe their transformative experiences. Donna Shalala, former US Secretary of Health and Human Services (1993-2001), recounts the adventure of serving in Iran between 1962 and 1964. "What the Peace Corps really did is make me a citizen of the world," says Shalala. duration 26:44   STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: none)

    Washington Week [#5233H] * President Obama began a 3-city, post-State of the Union tour Wednesday, to rally support for a number of his second-term policy goals. Among the key issues: raising the minimum wage, universal early childhood education, immigration reform and tougher gun-control legislation. The president said his proposals will strengthen the middle class without adding "a dime" to the deficit. Republicans are skeptical. In the official GOP response to the president's address, Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) said the nation's problems cannot be solved by more government spending.
    Considering the deep partisan divisions that exist in Washington, and the fact that many of President Obama's initiatives will require congressional action, what can really get done? We will get answers and analysis from John Dickerson of Slate Magazine and CBS News, Karen Tumulty of The Washington Post, Jeff Zeleny of The New York Times, Todd Purdum of Vanity Fair, Eamon Javers of CNBC.
    * Plus we'll have the latest on the seemingly stalled confirmation of former Senator Chuck Hagel (R-NE) to become the next Secretary of Defense and an update on the possibility that automatic sequestration budget cuts will take effect March 1.

    Moyers & Company [#206H] The Fight to Keep Democracy Alive * As President Obama gave his State of the Union address on Tuesday, many wondered why there was not a word in the speech about taming the power of private money over public policy. There's no question that big money calls the shots, or at least tilts the debate, on many issues vital to America's democracy and integrity.
    This week, Bill is joined by Dan Cantor, Executive Director of New York's Working Families Party, and Jonathan Soros, co-founder of the "Friends of Democracy" super PAC and a Senior Fellow at the Roosevelt Institute. They explore the virus in our politics, and what can realistically be done about it. The two have joined forces to curb the influence of money on politics, even if it means creating yet another big money super PAC to battle for - instead of against - democracy.
    * Also on the program, Bill discusses the power of poetry with Martín Espada.
