    European Journal [#3123] Turkey at the Boiling Point TURKEY: PROTEST TIDE - Opposition is growing against the Turkish Prime Minister Recip Tayyip Erdogan's hard-line stance. Voted into office by more than half the electorate, the minority in the country says his style is too authoritarian. For days now, hundreds of thousands of people have been demonstrating against his government in Turkey's largest cities. In many places, the protestors have clashed with police. In recent years, they say, he has ignored democratic values. They say he has ruled as he pleased by tightening up restrictions on drinking alcohol, carrying out enormous building projects regardless of the consequences, and having critical students and journalists arrested. Now, even within his own party, resistance against the head of government is growing.
    POLAND: ENDANGERED SHIPYARD - The famous Gdansk shipyard is once again in trouble. Its new Ukrainian operator has run out of money to pay wages. In its golden years, the 1980s, 17,000 people worked in Gdansk shipyard. Those times are long gone. The shipyard faced bankruptcy twice. Then a Ukrainian investor came along, and hopes blossomed. There were plans to build modern high tech ships and a factory for wind turbines. But the investor's plans haven't worked out, and the Solidarity trade union has taken industrial action. No more loans can be expected from private banks. The last hope lies in funding from the Polish government.
    DENMARK: ABSOLUTELY NO SMOKING - In Aarhus, Denmark's second-largest city, municipal employees are no longer allowed to take smoking breaks, so that taxpayers no longer have to foot the bill for them. Suddenly everything is different in Aarhus, at least for the 25,000 or so employees in its public offices and agencies. Since March they have been banned from smoking at work and on the grounds of municipal buildings. That's caused a stir in Denmark, and beyond the country's borders.
    FRANCE: CULTURAL RIFT OVER GAY MARRIAGE - The law has been passed, but the demonstrations against gay marriage in France continue. Far right parties in particular are jumping on the bandwagon. Legalizing gay marriage was one of President Francois Hollande's main campaign promises. Now the law is in force and the first same-sex couple has tied the knot in the southern city of Montpellier. But even though the law has been passed, it's still causing controversy, especially because of the issue of adoption rights for gay couples. Now a real cultural rift has opened up. Far right groups and parties in particular have joined what was originally a conservative middle class protest movement.

    Great Performances [#3807H] Paul Simon's Graceland Journey Unbelievably enough, Paul Simon's Graceland album is now a quarter-century old. Ordinarily, if it was remembered solely for the songs it brought into the world, that would be enough for most pop records. But it was also a musical triumph, an experiment in cross-cultural collaboration that also proved to be commercially popular, selling 14 million albums worldwide and generating three Top 40 singles, winning Grammys for both "Album of the Year" and "Song of the Year" for its title track. It still receives universal acclaim and is regarded today as one of the most significant recordings of its time. That says a lot about the record, but doesn't tell the whole story. Much of the world of 1986 has changed, and key elements of Graceland's history have receded into the fog of time. Why was it initially so controversial and why did Simon face such vehement criticism at the time? In 2011, acclaimed filmmaker Joe Berlinger accompanied Simon on his return to South Africa to reunite and perform with several of the musicians involved in the original album, capturing Simon's unique homecoming journey as he reflects on the landmark events as well as looks to the future. duration 1:55:46   SRND51 TVPG
