    In Search of Myths and Heroes [#103] Shangri-La/Jason & The Golden Fleece The third of Michael Wood's historical journeys takes viewers on a thrilling trek through India, Nepal and Tibet in search of Shangri-La. The tale of the magical valley hidden behind the Himalayas was popularized in the 1930s movie Lost Horizon, but the myth of a secret earthly paradise is much older. To find the truth behind the legend, Wood travels on foot through some of the world's most sacred mountains before finally reaching the fantastic ruins of a lost city, which he believes is the real inspiration behind the myth. duration 56:46   STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: none)

    In Search of Myths and Heroes [#104] Jason & The Golden Fleece The Greeks have given the world its greatest body of myths, including the myth of Jason, an epic tale of the hero's quest and the ancestor of Star Wars and Lord of the Rings. Jason is presented with a "mission impossible": to sail into the unknown to find the Golden Fleece. He is saved by the priestess Medea and her magical arts, but her love comes at a high price. A fairy tale? Or was there a real voyage? Wood heads from Greece to the wild mountains of the Caucasus to find the truth behind the Jason legend. duration 56:46   STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: none)

    Teaching Channel Presents [#201] The New Teacher Experience The New Teacher Experience: Follow two teachers in Los Angeles, CA for an intimate look at what the experience is really like.

    America Reframed [#115] Beyond Belief Susan Retik and Patti Quigley are two ordinary soccer moms living in the affluent suburbs of Boston until tragedy strikes. Rather than turning inwards, grief compels these women to focus on the country where the terrorists who took their husbands' lives were trained: Afghanistan. Over the course of two years, as they cope with loss and struggle to raise their families as single mothers, these extraordinary women dedicate themselves to empowering Afghan widows whose lives have been ravaged by decades of war, poverty and oppression - factors they consider to be the root causes of terrorism.
    As Susan and Patti make the courageous journey from their comfortable neighborhoods to the most desperate Afghan villages, they discover a powerful bond with each other, an unlikely kinship with widows halfway around the world, and a profound way to move beyond tragedy. From the ruins of the World Trade Center to those of Kabul and back, theirs is a journey of personal strength and international reconciliation, and a testament to the vision that peace can be forged... one woman at a time.

    No Going Back: Women and the War North of the Mason-Dixon line, the Industrial Revolution of the mid-19th century drew increasing numbers of women out of the home and into the factories. In the agrarian, antebellum South, no such exodus occurred. Many Southerners perceived the forces of modernization - including the early rumblings of the women's suffrage movement - as a threat to their traditional way of life. However, as Fort Sumter fell in April of 1861, so too would many firmly held cultural and societal beliefs about "a woman's place." Hardships and hunger forced ill-prepared, isolated and often un-educated Southern women into the public sphere to demand relief from the government and advocate for policy changes. NO GOING BACK: WOMEN AND THE WAR explores how the lives of women, and their roles in society, changed during and after the Civil War. Grammy?-winning singer-songwriter Mary Chapin Carpenter narrates. Interviews with well-known historians and academics, reenactments at Civil War-era landmarks, and dramatic readings from the letters and journals of women, both free and enslaved, illuminate this fascinating chapter in American history. duration 28:59   STEREO TVG

    Religion & Ethics NewsWeekly [#1627] NONE OF THE ABOVE: POLITICAL IMPLICATIONS - We continue our 3-part miniseries examining the rapid rise in the number of Americans, now 20%, who describe themselves as religiously unaffiliated. The majority of these "nones," as they are often called, are Democratic and politically liberal. Kim Lawton looks at how their growing numbers could affect elections and the role of religion in politics. (Originally aired October 19,2012)
    SAME-SEX MARRIAGE - Later this month, the Supreme Court will hear arguments on an amendment that bans same-sex marriage In California, and on the Defense of Marriage Act, which denies same-sex couples who marry the same federal benefits accorded to heterosexual marriages. The Supreme Court decision will have broad implications and, as Tim O'Brien reports, one possible outcome of these cases could be the requirement that all states recognize gay marriage.

    Washington Week [#5236H] It was a week of mixed messages and political realities in Washington. There were allegations of gamesmanship vs. outreach across the political aisle; projections of significant fallout due to sequestration vs. the fact that the government is still rolling. Joining Gwen Ifill around the table this week: Greg Ip of The Economist, Susan Davis of USA Today, and Charles Babington of the Associated Press. Topics:
    * After a bruising battle over budget cuts, President Obama has now launched a Republican "charm offensive" hosting meals with key GOP lawmakers and making plans to get together with the entire Senate Republican caucus next week. The goal: breaking through the gridlock to find bipartisan solutions to the budget crisis. The president is focused on reaching a deal that includes tax reform and long-term deficit reduction. Lawmakers in the House passed a budget designed to avert fiscal disaster later this month. The big question: how can the White House and Congress finally find common ground and negotiate a comprehensive budget plan?
    * Meanwhile, after weeks of warnings and predictions of sequester doom, most Americans probably didn't notice. Investors on Wall Street didn't seem concerned, as the stock market surged to its highest levels ever. So now the question is: were the economists who cautioned that the $85 billion in spending cuts would stall the fragile economic recovery right or wrong?
    * Kentucky GOP Senator Rand Paul's nearly 13 hour filibuster to block John Brennan's confirmation as the new CIA chief proved to be unsuccessful. Brennan was confirmed by a 63-34 vote of the Senate on Thursday. However, Paul's principled stance forced Attorney General Eric Holder to admit that the president cannot order drone strikes against US citizens here at home. While the filibuster may have endeared him to libertarian supporters, some Republican Senators who support the use of drones weren't so happy. Now what happens?

    THIS WEEK in Northern California [#2420] March 8, 2013 Guest Host: Joshua Johnson.
    News panel:
    SANTA CRUZ POLICE OFFICERS - From across California, thousands mourned the murders of two Santa Cruz police officers killed during a routine investigation. The long and troubled criminal history of the killer raises questions about the criminal justice system.
    DOW JONES HIGH - The Dow Jones hit a twelve-year record high this week. Is it a temporary uptick or does it suggest a broader economic recovery? With new data out on job growth, how are Bay Area companies doing?
    DEVIL'S SLIDE - Commuters driving the coastal route between Santa Cruz and San Francisco can expect a different view next month. A dangerous stretch of Highway-1, known as Devil's Slide, will soon be re-routed away from the steep cliffs to new state-of-the-art mile-long tunnels.
    Guests: Martha Mendoza, Associated Press; Tom Vacar, KTVU; Paul Rogers, San Jose Mercury News and KQED.
    URBAN PLANNING: STUART COHEN - As we look to the future, Bay Area urban planners are scrambling for ideas on how to handle the projected increase in population. Over the last 40 years, California's sprawling growth and dependence on cars has taken its toll. According to a recent Census Bureau report, the region is home to the most "mega-commuters" in the country. These are people who spend at least 90 minutes and drive over 50 miles to get to work. Families, particularly those who can least afford it, are spending more and more of their time and income just getting where they need to go. Stuart Cohen, recipient of a 2013 James Irvine Foundation Leadership Award, believes that smarter regional planning can reverse these trends. As a founder and executive director of the nonprofit TransForm, he is leading an effort to revitalize local communities into diverse, vibrant places where more people walk, bike and take world-class public transit.
