    Nightly Business Report [#32126Z] Tonight on Nightly Business Report, another day of big market swings. Should investors suit up for a summer of volatility? And a modern family milestone.

  • 1:30 am
    Tavis Smiley [#2912Z] Tavis talks with former teen idol Paul Anka, who's celebrating 55 years in the music business. The singer-songwriter reflects on his remarkable longevity in show business, as detailed in his recently released memoir, My Way. duration 26:46   STEREO TVRE
  • 2:00 am
    War Zone/Comfort Zone Women account for roughly 14% of the active-duty US military and more than 24% of the National Guard, yet they often receive less than a hero's welcome upon their return to civilian life. Many face poverty, homelessness and joblessness; deal with the psychological and physiological effects of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder from military sexual trauma and combatrelated injuries; and often receive poor service from a Veterans Administration ill-equipped and, in some cases, unwilling to help them.
    This Emmy-nominated documentary uncovers the plight of these veterans through the intense and personal stories of four women veterans coping with life after their military service. Each seeks a sense of normalcy and peace without the benefit of a comprehensive support system. It weaves together intimate interviews with the story of two women - Shalini Madaras and Joy Kiss - struggling to establish transitional housing for homeless female veterans in Bridgeport, Connecticut, despite virulent community opposition.

  • 3:30 am
    Tavis Smiley [#2913] Tavis talks with legendary actress Rita Moreno about her new autobiography. 1 of only 8 living entertainers to achieve the honor of the industry's "grand slam," Moreno shares stories from her one-of-a-kind career.

Also known as Lou Gehrig's disease, ALS physically and mentally affects each person differently. In this heartfelt episode, experts present data and Gary Temoyan shares his story, talking about his diagnosis, treatments, progression, and symptom management, which is maximizing his quality of life for as long as possible. duration 26:46   STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: none)
  • 5:00 am
    Nova [#4014] Manhunt - Boston Bombers At 2:50pm on April 15, two bomb blasts turned the Boston Marathon finish line from a scene of triumph to tragedy, leaving three dead, hundreds injured and a city gripped by heartbreak and terror. Less than five days later, the key suspects were identified and apprehended with one dead, the other in custody. How did investigators transform the chaos of the bombing into a coherent trail of clues, pointing to the accused killers? NOVA follows the manhunt step by step, examining the role modern technology -- combined with old-fashioned detective work -- played in cracking the case. Given hundreds of hours of surveillance and bystander videos, how did agents spot the bad guys in a sea of spectators? Why couldn't facial recognition software I.D. the criminals? How much could bomb chemistry analysis, cell phone GPS, infrared imagery and crowd sourcing reveal about the secrets behind this horrific crime? With the help of top criminal investigators and anti-terrorism experts, NOVA explores which technological innovations worked -- and which didn't -- in the most notorious case of today, and how the world of crime fighting could be transformed tomorrow. duration 56:46   STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: none)
  • MORNING
  • 6:00 am
    Nova [#4015H] Oklahoma's Deadliest Tornadoes On May 20th 2013, a ferocious F5 tornado over a mile wide tore through Moore, Oklahoma, inflicting 24 deaths and obliterating entire neighborhoods. It was the third time an exceptionally violent tornado had struck the city in 14 years. Yet predicting when and where these killer storms will hit still poses a huge challenge. Why was 2011 - the worst ever recorded tornado season that left 158 dead in Joplin, Missouri - followed by the quietest ever year of activity prior to the Moore disaster? Can improved radar and warning technology explain why so many fewer died in Moore than in Joplin? And will tornadoes get worse as Earth's climate heats up? In this Nova special, we meet scientists in the front ranks of the battle to understand these extreme weather events. We also meet storm survivors whose lives have been upended, and learn how we can protect ourselves and our communities for the uncertain future. duration 54:16   STEREO TVPG
  • 7:00 am
    Nova scienceNOW [#603H] How Smart Can We Get? How do you get a genius brain? Is it all in your DNA? Or is it hard work? Is it possible that everyone's brain has untapped genius - just waiting for the right circumstances so it can be unleashed? From a man who suddenly acquired an extraordinary musical gift after a freak head injury to a "memory athlete" who can remember strings of hundreds of random numbers, David Pogue meets people stretching the boundaries of what the human mind can do. Then, Pogue puts himself to the test: After high-res scanning, he finds out how the anatomy of his brain measures up against the greatest mind of the century - Albert Einstein. duration 55:17   STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: DVI)
