    America Reframed [#120] 51 Birch Street Documentary filmmaker Doug Block had every reason to believe his parent's 54-year marriage was a good one. So he isn't prepared when, just a few months after his mothers' unexpected death, his 83-year old father, Mike, phones to announce that he's moving to Florida to live with "Kitty", his secretary from 40 years before. Always close to his mother and equally distant from his father, he's stunned and suspicious.
    When Mike and Kitty marry and sell the longtime family home, Doug returns to suburban Long Island with camera in hand for one last visit. And there, among the lifetime of memories being packed away forever, he discovers 3 large boxes filled with his moms' daily diaries going back 35 years.
    Realizing he has only a few short weeks before the movers come and his dad will be gone for good, the veteran documentarian sticks around, determined to investigate the mystery of his parents' marriage. Through increasingly candid conversations with family members and friends, and constantly surprising diary revelations, Doug finally comes to peace with two parents who are far more complex and troubled than he ever imagined.
    Both unexpectedly funny and heartbreaking, 51 Birch Street is the first-person account of Block's unpredictable journey through a whirlwind of dramatic life-changing events: the death of his mother, the uncovering of decades of family secrets, and the ensuing reconciliation with his father. What begins as his own intimate, autobiographical story, soon evolves into a broader meditation on the universal themes of love, marriage, fidelity and the mystery of family.
    51 Birch Street spans 60 years and 3 generations, and weaves together hundreds of faded snapshots, 8mm home movies and two decades of verit?footage. The result is a timeless tale of what can happen when our most fundamental assumptions about family are suddenly called into questio"

    Global Voices [#527] Education Education What does an education get you? In ancient times in China, education was the only way out of poverty, in recent times it has been the best way.

But these days China's higher education system only leads to jobs for a few, educating a new generation to unemployment and despair. duration 56:46   STEREO

Pete Williams of NBC News will have the latest on the international investigation and what the 3 friends told police about the 19-year-old bombing suspect.

    THIS WEEK in Northern California [#2428H] May 3, 2013 Guest host: Scott Shafer.
    News Panel:
    WILDFIRES: Early spring wildfires are burning, threatening homes and scorching hundreds of acres throughout the state. As snowpack data comes in, California faces one of the driest years on record. With forests and grasslands already tinder dry, firefighters are gearing up for what could be a nasty fire season.
    FUSION TROUBLES: Using the world's largest laser, scientists at Lawrence Livermore National Lab have been trying to ignite a nuclear fusion reaction in a laboratory essentially mimicking a tiny sun. Called the National Ignition Facility (NIF), the $5 billion project hopes to revolutionize energy by laying the groundwork for a potentially endless supply of clean energy. But after missing several deadlines and a management shake-up, the facility is now adjusting expectations.
    Guests: Paul Rogers, San Jose Mercury News & KQED; Amy Standen, KQED Science.
    NEXT MEAL: GENETICALLY ENGINEERED FOODS - What's really in your food? Last November's Proposition 37 would have required all genetically engineered foods in California to be labeled, but the initiative lost at the ballot box. Now California Democrat Senator Barbara Boxer is taking up the issue with a bill to require similar labeling by the FDA. In this report from KQED Science, producer Gabriela Quiros looks at the technology behind genetically engineered crops and what the pros and cons might be. A full half- hour documentary on the topic, "Next Meal: Engineering Food," airs at 7:30 pm, Wednesday May 8 on KQED 9.
    OUT IN BAY AREA SPORTS: First Openly Gay Man in Pro Sports Played for Oakland A's - When NBA player Jason Collins publicly came out as gay this week, many hailed him as the first active player in one of the four major US professional sports leagues to do so. However, that distinction should go to the Bay Area's Glenn Burke, a former Oakland A's baseball player who was open about his sexuality in the 1970s. While Collins' announcement has been met with more support than condemnation, Burke faced a different social and professional landscape. "Glenn was comfortable with who he was," said a childhood friend. "Baseball was not comfortable with who he was." Ted Griggs, President of Comcast SportsNet, a co-producer of the documentary Out. The Glenn Burke Story, sits down with Scott Shafer to talk about Glenn Burke, Jason Collins and the climate for gay athletes.

    Moyers & Company [#217H] The Sandy Hook Promise Francine and David Wheeler's youngest son Ben was killed in the December 14th attack at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut. Their grief has led them to the Sandy Hook Promise, a now-nationwide group founded by Newtown friends and neighbors to heal the hurt and find new ways to talk about and campaign against the scourge of gun violence in the US. One of their allies is folksinger and activist Peter Yarrow of Peter, Paul and Mary fame, who joined with the Wheelers and others in a February concert of harmony, resilience and solidarity.
    This week, we see excerpts from the concert, soon to appear on many public television stations. Francine Wheeler and Peter Yarrow discuss with Bill the power of music to create change, and their mission to protect children and adults from gun violence in communities across America. Later, the conversation continues as David Wheeler joins his wife to talk with Bill about what can be done and if the gun issue can be addressed rationally in a way that includes diverse viewpoints and bypasses partisan brinkmanship.
