  • 2:00 am
    American Masters [#2502H] Cab Calloway: Sketches "Hi de hi de hi de ho ...," the popular refrain from Minnie the Moocher, was his signature song, and Harlem's famous Cotton Club was his home stage. A singer, dancer and band leader, he was an exceptional figure in the history of jazz -- a consummate musician, he charmed audiences across the world with boundless energy, bravado and elegant showmanship. His back glide dance step is the precursor to Michael Jackson's moonwalk, and his scatting lyrics find their legacy in today's hip-hop and rap. An ambassador for his race, Calloway was the first black musician to tour the segregationist South, as early as 1932. At the top of his game in the jazz and swing eras of the '30s and '40s, he toured as Sportin' Life in "Porgy and Bess," forever putting his personal stamp on "It Ain't Necessarily So. " His career flagged until he was rediscovered in the 1980's "Blues Brothers" and even on "Sesame Street," becoming a new cult hero of sorts. duration 55:46   STEREO TVPG

    Shipping Out: The Story of America's Seafaring Women This unusual documentary celebrates the modern-day women who work in commercial shipping - on the container ships, bulk cargo carriers and tankers, coastal tugs, barges and ferry boats that traverse America's waterways. It explores the little-known history, mythologies and traditional attitudes which, until recently, limited women's participation in seafaring. The program meets the harbor and bar pilots, tug boat captains, marine engineers, mates, ordinary "seamen" and stewards who continue to reshape the definition of "women's" work. By Maria Brooks. duration 55:24   STEREO TVG

    No Job for a Woman: The Women Who Fought to Report WWII Before World War II, war reporting was considered No Job For a Woman. But when the United States entered the war, American women reporters did not want to miss covering the biggest story of the century so they fought for and won access. But there was a catch: women reporters would be banned from the frontlines, prevented from covering Front Page stories about generals and battlefield manoeuvres, and assigned "woman's angle" stories about nurses and female military personnel. Several women reporters refused to abide by these journalistic conventions and military restrictions and, instead, brought home a new kind of war story: one that was more intimate yet more revealing. They reached beyond the battlefield and deep into human lives to tell a new story of war. duration 1:03:48   STEREO (Secondary audio: none)

    Frontline [#3008H] Inside Japan's Nuclear Meltdown The definitive account of the crisis inside the Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear complex after the devastating earthquake and tsunami that struck Japan on March 11, 2011. With exclusive eye-witness testimony from key figures - including the Japanese Prime Minister and senior executives at the power company Tepco - Frontline tells the story of the workers struggling frantically to reconnect power inside the plant???s pitch-dark and highly radioactive reactor buildings; the nuclear experts and officials in the Prime Minister's office fighting to get information as the crisis spiraled out of control; and the plant manager who disobeyed his executives' orders when he thought it would save the lives of his workers. The investigation profiles the Japanese soldiers and firefighters who were drafted to cool the reactors and were wounded when the reactor housings exploded; and the families living near the nuclear plant, who unknowingly fled in the same direction as the radioactive plume, exposing themselves to dangerously high radiation levels. duration 56:46   STEREO TVRE
