    Uncommon Vision: The Life and Times of John Howard Griffin John Howard Griffin is best known as the white man who in 1959 disguised himself as a black man and then traveled anonymously through the heart of Dixie. From his experiences, he wrote Black Like Me, a groundbreaking best seller published in 1960 that today stands as a testament to Griffin's moral commitment and is a document of one of the more extraordinary events of the Civil Rights era. The book revealed the author's first-hand exposure to the harsh realities that were faced by black citizens each day in the Jim Crow South. Following the publication of the book, Griffin was the target of death threats and was hanged in effigy in his hometown in Texas. Through dramatic re-enactments, evocative readings from the book, strong archival materials, and interviews with those who knew John Howard Griffin, this revealing biography looks at the life of this remarkable social activist. It also examines how Griffin's deep spiritual commitment carried him through an uncanny life - segregated childhood in Fort Worth, a medic with the French Underground in WWII, blinded by war injuries, and a prolific writer and photographer. duration 57:14   TVG

    European Journal [#3107] Russian Orphanages On Trial ORPHANAGES ON TRIAL: Hundreds of thousands of children in Russia are growing up as orphans. Many of them are what are called "social orphans" - meaning they have at least one living parent, but have been relinquished by the latter to the state. Despite these figures, President Vladimir Putin has sharpened the laws governing adoption. In the past, many Russian orphans were adopted by couples from the US and Western Europe. Now American families are banned from Russian adoptions entirely. President Putin has said that the country can care for its own children. In reality, however, Russian orphanages have a reputation for abysmal conditions. Apart from a few showcase orphanages, the majority of children's homes are closed to public scrutiny.
    REIMAGINING THE BANLIEUE: Desolate housing developments, torched cars and angry youth - these are the images that dominate media coverage of urban suburbs in France. Now architects have taken their hand to a Parisian banlieue in a regeneration program that aims to revitalize the troubled district. Champigny-sur-Marne, south of Paris, is known as a socially disadvantaged area. Many of its residents are immigrants, and many are unemployed. The town is blanketed with tracts of unattractive pre-fab housing. Now a multi-million euro project is building new single-family houses - and in an especially unusual move, they're being built directly on top of the prefabricated units. The goal is to create dwellings that will breathe fresh life into the community.
    A LIFE SPENT IN HIDING: Nearly a century after the mass killings of Armenians in the Ottoman Empire, an increasing number of Turks of Armenian heritage are acknowledging their roots. Out of fear of discrimination, many survivors had converted to Islam and adopted Turkish names. While a number of countries say the massacres constituted genocide, Turkey still rejects the term. The government has taken steps towards rapprochement with Christian communities, however, such as returning many properties confiscated over past decades - among them properties owned by Armenians. Moves such as these have encouraged people to acknowledge their Armenian heritage - including in eastern Anatolia, the region which was once home to a large Armenian population.
    PRISON ISLAND OF GORGONA: Series: "Small Worlds" Part 5 - Most former prison islands today are museums. One exception is the penal colony on Gorgona. Gorgona Prison has been in existence since 1869. Those behind bars today include men convicted of robbery and manslaughter - who are now being trained for work in the farming sector, animal husbandry and winemaking. Anyone trying to approach the island unannounced will be turned back by the police. On visiting day convicts are allowed to meet friends and family at the island's sole bar, which then doubles as a pizzeria.

    AfroPop: The Ultimate Cultural Exchange [#302] 125 Franco's Boulevard/Nora 125 Franco's Boulevard - For 40 years, Franco the Great used his talents to paint murals on the storefront roll-down gates on 125th Street in Harlem. Re-zoning legislation and a recently passed city law threaten to remove these gates, along with the art and culture painted on them. Who will step up and preserve Franco's art in the wake of big plans to change Harlem?

    Nora - "Nora" is based on true stories of Nora Chipaumire, a dancer born in Zimbabwe in 1965. In the film, Nora returns to the landscape of her childhood and journeys through some vivid memories of her youth: family dramas, difficult love affairs and militant politics. Using performance and dance, she brings her history to life in a swiftly moving poem of sound and image. Shot entirely on location in Southern Africa.

    Black Kungfu Experience, The This program introduces kungfu's African-American pioneers, men who challenged convention and overturned preconceived notions while mastering the ancient art. The four martial artists profiled include Ron Van Clief, an ex-Marine and Vietnam veteran who starred in more than 40 kungfu films and earned the nickname "Black Dragon" from Bruce Lee. Their compelling stories illustrate how kungfu began as - and remains - a unique crucible of the black experience. In particular, kungfu's themes of the underdog triumphing against the odds resonated in black communities across the United States. duration 56:44   STEREO TVPG

    Nature [#3008] Cold Warriors: Wolves and Buffalo For thousands of years, wolves hunted buffalo across the vast North American plains until the westward settlement of the continent saw the virtual extinction of these vast herds and their eternal predators, the wolves. However, this ancient relationship was not lost altogether and continues uninterrupted in just one location -- on the northern edge of the continent's central plains in a place named Wood Buffalo National Park. Today the ancestors of those ancient buffalo and wolves still engage in epic life and death dramas across this northern land. Packs of wolves up to 30 strong hunt the largest land mammals on the continent -- buffalo. By getting to know a specific pack of wolves and the individuals that make up the pack, we get a sense of how these two animal species (wolves and buffalo) live together in what seems like a forgotten corner of the world. duration 56:46   STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: none)

      We are aware of the break-up issues for our DT25 Over the Air signal in the Monterey/Salinas area. This will also affect viewers of any cable or satellite signal provider using that transmitter as their source. Engineers are working on the problem.

      (DT25.1, 25.2, 25.3) KQET DT25 was off the air for a portion of Sunday morning, due to the transmitter taking a power hit. The signal has been restored.
