    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.

    Liquid Assets: The Story of Our Water Infrastructure This documentary tells the story of essential infrastructure systems: water, wastewater, and stormwater. These systems - some in the ground for more than 100 years - provide a critical public health function and are essential for economic development and growth. Largely out of sight and out of mind, these aging systems have not been maintained, and some estimates suggest this is the single largest public works endeavor in our nation's history. Exploring the history, engineering challenges, and political and economic realities in urban and rural locations, the documentary provides an understanding of the hidden assets that support our way of life. Locations featured in the documentary include Atlanta, Boston, Herminie (Pennsylvania), Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Milwaukee, New York City, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, and Washington, DC. duration 1:26:46   STEREO TVG

  • 7:00 am
    Water Pressures Water is a central element of life, yet 1 in 8 people worldwide - 1.2 billion - lack access to safe drinking water. In the coming years, the water scarcity in some drought-stricken regions will turn into a global crisis. Hosted by actor-producer Adrian Grenier, this program sheds light on this critical, complex issue by documenting the partnership between villagers in water-distressed Rajasthan, India and students and faculty at Northwestern University, situated on the shores of Lake Michigan. Students in a Northwestern environmental policy class see a model of conservation and community cooperation firsthand on a 10-day trip to India, where a leading nonprofit organizations illustrates the power of pairing traditional wisdom with simple teamwork to solve the water crisis in the Thar Desert. They also meet with political leaders, corporate executives and water experts to create their own local partnerships and try to make a difference in their own communities. duration 56:46   STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: DVI)
