    Return When 13-year-old Fred Sondermann escaped from Nazi Germany in 1939, on the eve of World War II, he never imagined he would return. His homeland held only horrific and traumatizing memories of discrimination, persecution and death. However, an opportunity in 1969 to spend a sabbatical in Germany represented a chance for Dr. Sondermann to make sense of, and peace with, his experiences. This documentary recounts Sondermann's remarkable journey to understanding, as he begins to appreciate the complexities and multiple realities of the time. Adapted from Sondermann's memoirs, it explores the emotions and the conclusions of an American Jew returning to his German homeland after 30 years. In addition to the late Sondermann's compelling first-person narrative, it also features interviews with his son, his widow and his childhood friend. Contemporary video and photography of Dachau Concentration Camp and Sondermann's hometown of Horn are interchanged with archival images and documents, period news footage and the few surviving family photographs. duration 28:48   STEREO TVPG

    Labyrinth Memory, art and hell collide as an Auschwitz survivor finally confronts the horrors of his past after 50 years of silence. Marian Kolodziej was on one of the first transports to enter Auschwitz. He survived five years imprisonment and never spoke of his experience until after a serious stroke in 1993. He began physical rehabilitation by doing pen and ink drawings depicting his memories of the horrific experience at Auschwitz 50 years earlier. Marian's drawings and art installation, which he called The Labyrinth, fill the large basement of a church near Auschwitz.
    In the documentary, The Labyrinth, Marian takes the audience on a journey through his drawings and art installations. Through the blending of his testimony and graphic drawings, we explore the memories and nightmares that were buried for years. Marian's story of survival and persistence, of life before, during and after Auschwitz are a testament to the human spirit. Marian continued to draw and to speak about his experiences until his death in 2009. Why would a confrontation with death trigger the need to record his long-suppressed memories? Why in this graphic, metaphorical way?
    The Labyrinth raises these questions in a visually stunning way. This documentary is eyewitness testimony that is unique in the annals of documenting the Holocaust. Marian is Polish Catholic,who used his drawings to give testimony to the horrors of Auschwitz and whose body of work provides a testament to suffering and inhumanity. And yet, it is a story of survival and human resilience.

    Racing The Rez For the Navajo and Hopi, running is much more than a sport, it is woven into the cultural fabric of their lives. Encouraged by their elders, many Navajos and Hopis begin running at an early age - to greet the morning sun, to prepare for a ceremony or simply to challenge themselves in the vast, southwestern landscape. In the rugged canyon lands of Northern Arizona, Navajo and Hopi cross-country runners from two rival high schools vie for the state championship while striving to find their place among their native people and the larger American culture. Win or lose, what they learn over the course of two racing seasons has a dramatic effect on the rest of their lives.
    Combining interviews with verite-style shooting, this documentary offers a rare view into the surprising complexity and diversity of contemporary reservation life, from the point of view of five teenage boys on the cusp of adulthood. It follows Ryan, Dennis, Billy, Johnny and Joyai from the classrooms to their remote, un-electrified homes, from grueling runs across canyons and mesas to their ultimate day of reckoning - the state meet - and beyond.

    Religion & Ethics NewsWeekly [#1633] RELIGION AND THE ENVIRONMENT - A national organization called Interfaith Power and Light - IPL - is bringing different faiths together on environmental issues, especially climate change. Although pastors have often been reluctant to talk about the environment from the pulpit, Lucky Severson reports that IPL wants houses of worship to invest in energy efficiency and to serve as examples to the people in the pews, encouraging them to become energy efficient in their homes.
    BASEBALL AS A ROAD TO GOD - Baseball has its own relics, prophets and rituals - as does religion - according to John Sexton, president of New York University and author of "Baseball as a Road to God." But beyond surface similarities, Sexton tells Bob Faw, the game's most magnificent moments, its timelessness and its intensity, can bring us to a sense of "the ineffable" - the transcendent.

    Play Again What are the consequences of a childhood removed from nature? One generation from now most people in the US will have spent more time in the virtual world than in nature.
    New media technologies have improved our lives in countless ways. Information now appears with a click. Overseas friends are part of our daily lives. And even grandma loves Wii. But what are we missing when we are behind screens? And how will this impact our children, our society, and eventually, our planet?
    At a time when children play more behind screens than outside, this moving and humorous documentary explores the changing balance between the virtual and natural worlds. It follows 6 teenagers who, like the "average American child," spend 5 to 15 hours a day behind screens. It unplugs these teens and takes them on their first wilderness adventure - no electricity, no cell phone coverage, no virtual reality. Through the voices of children and leading experts including journalist Richard Louv, sociologist Juliet Schor, environmental writer Bill McKibben, educators Diane Levin and Nancy Carlsson-Paige, neuroscientist Gary Small, parks advocate Charles Jordan, and geneticist David Suzuki, this program investigates the consequences of a childhood removed from nature and encourages action for a sustainable future.

    Lost Bird Project This captivating nature documentary charts sculptor Todd McGrain's efforts to memorialize five birds - the Great Auk, Carolina Parakeet, Labrador Duck, Passenger Pigeon and Heath Hen - driven to extinction in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. It follows McGrain and his brother-in-law Andy as they embark on a road trip in search of the last-known locations of the birds and seek permission to install McGrain's six-foot-tall bronze sculptures on those sites. Travelling from the tropical swamps of Florida to the rocky coasts of Newfoundland to the shores of Martha's Vineyard, the men spend more than two years scouting locations, talking to park rangers, speaking at town meetings and battling bureaucracy in their effort to gather support for the project. An elegy to the five birds, the program is a thoughtful and sometimes humorous look at the artist and his mission. duration 56:46   STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: DVI)

    Bitter Seeds Biotechnology is changing the way farming is done all over the world. Advocates believe the New Green Revolution is the only way to provide sufficient food for the world's growing population while opponents raise environmental concerns and fear that GMOs drive small scale farmers off the land. This documentary explores the controversy - from a village in India that uses genetically modified seeds to US government that promote them.
    Bitter Seeds is the final film in Micha X. Peled's Globalization Trilogy, following Store Wars: When Wal-Mart Comes to Town (2001-2003) and China Blue (2007-2012). The films won 18 international awards, aired on KQED and over 30 other TV channels, and screened in more than 100 film festivals. They also connected viewers to NGO action campaigns and encouraged Western consumers to understand their impact on the rest of the world.

    • KQED all channels, planned overnight maintenance: early Fri 12/19 midnight-6am

      (this includes all DT9, DT54 and DT25 channels, along with all paid services) We will be doing upgrade and maintenance work in our Master Control area during the overnight hours of late Thurs/early Fri 12/19. Work will begin shortly after midnight early Friday, which may last until 6am, though we hope to finish earlier. This […]

    • KQED Plus OTA ? Optimistically planned maintenance: Fri 12/05 mid-morning

      (DT54.1 thru 54.5) Assuming that the weather and road conditions permit, we plan to do a bit of maintenance on our KQEH transmitter the morning of Friday 12/05… hopefully 10am-11am-ish, but could be a bit later. Most of the work should not affect the outgoing signal, but there will need to be a cable swap […]

    • Mon 11/03/14: Work on KQED Plus tower (DT54)

      Another station needs to do maintenance on its equipment on the tower on Monument Peak, requiring that we switch our DT54 Over the Air signal from the main antenna to the auxiliary when the work starts, then back to the main antenna at the conclusion. These switches should cause momentary outages only, and most receivers […]
