    Focus On Europe [#3121] The Rise of Anti-Semitism In Eastern Europe On April 30, millions of Europeans looked on as Prince Willem-Alexander was crowned King of the Netherlands. At the same time, surveys show that many Europeans think having a royal head of state is a royal waste of money. However, in France a small group of conservatives wants to prove the opposite is true. The country's royalists are demanding the return of the monarchy. The details:
    HUNGARY: THE RISE IN ANTI-SEMITISM - Hungary is home to the third largest Jewish population in Europe. That community is feeling increasingly under threat, as anti-Semitic discourse enters the mainstream. Jews in Hungary are facing a rise in physical and verbal assaults. One member of parliament recently called for Jewish citizens to be registered separately by the authorities as potential "national security risks". This May Day saw a gathering of thousands of ultra-right-wingers in Budapest. The event was organized by the right-wing Jobbik Party - the third biggest political force in the Hungarian parliament.
    ITALY: AFTERSHOCKS FROM THE EARTHQUAKE - One year on from the major earthquake in the Emilia Romagna region of northern Italy, things have still to settle. Reconstruction has still to really pick up. Property damage in this wealthy part of Italy is often only being resolved on a makeshift basis. The builders and authorities in the areas affected are in despair, with support from in Rome minimal. Given the financial crisis facing the country, the government is unlikely to deliver the assistance originally promised.
    FRANCE: RETURN OF THE ROYALISTS - Europe's royal families are always a favorite focus for the tabloid media. There is another group now delighted to see the new king of the Netherlands ascend the throne: France's royalists. The interest across Europe in the coronation of Willem-Alexander, the new king of the Netherlands, has been great news for French royalists. The new generation of pro-monarchists comprising the Action Francaise group dream of a France as it was prior to the French Revolution of 1789 war: a monarchy instead of a classic democracy. Their old-fashioned views have failed to gain much popularity, however - until now.
    CYPRUS: THE POWER OF THE CHURCH - The Cypriot orthodox church is said to own property worth billions of euros. Now it wants to help the bankrupt island state by mortgaging its assets. Relations between the state and church are close in Cyprus. The church owes much of its wealth to tax breaks. It now remains to be seen whether or not the head of the church, Archbishop Chrysostomos II, will stick to his pledge.

    Pacific Heartbeat [#103] Papa Mau: The Wayfinder In 1974, Hawaiians sailed the traditional voyaging canoe Hokulea from Hawai'i to Tahiti and proved to the world that their ancestors had explored the vast expanse of the Pacific Ocean by navigating with the stars. This episode is the story of critical role that master navigator Mau Piailug played in that voyage, and the rebirth of Polynesian unity and pride that followed. The Hokulea was built by members of the newly formed Polynesian Voyaging Society, who dreamed of sailing in the way of their ancestors. Shortly thereafter, a search began for someone who could teach them the art of non-instrument navigation, which had been all but lost until they met Micronesian-born Mau, who agreed to share his knowledge. Follow the remarkable journey of an iconic voyaging canoe and a new generation of Hawaiian navigators who, under the guidance of Papa Mau, revitalized and reclaimed Polynesia's voyaging tradition. duration 56:46   STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: none)
