    Eating Alabama This documentary is a story about why food matters. In search of a simpler life, a young couple returns home to Alabama where they set out to eat the way their grandparents did - locally and seasonally. But as they navigate the agro-industrial gastronomical complex, they soon realize that nearly everything about the food system has changed since farmers once populated their family histories.

    Statue of Liberty This 1985 Ken Burns film chronicled the creation and history of the Statue of Liberty and what it represents to all Americans. Narrated by David McCullough, the film traced the development of the monument--from its conception, to its complicated and often controversial construction, to its final dedication--and offered interviews with a wide range of Americans to explore the meaning of the Statue of Liberty. duration 56:08   TVPG

  • 6:00 am
    Mount Rushmore: American Experience High on a granite cliff in South Dakota tower the huge carved faces of four American presidents. Together they constitute the world's largest sculpture. The massive tableau inspires awe and bemusement. How, and when, was it carved? Who possessed the audacity to create such a gargantuan work? The story of Mount Rushmore's creation is as bizarre and wonderful as the monument itself. It is the story of hucksterism and hyperbole, of a massive public works project in the midst of an economic depression. And it is the story of dozens of ordinary Americans who suddenly found themselves suspended high on a cliff face with drills and hammers as a sculptor they considered insane directed them in the creation of what some would call a monstrosity and others a masterpiece. Narrated by Michael Murphy. duration 56:46   STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: none)

    Moyers & Company [#226H] Surviving The New American Economy 22 years ago, Bill Moyers started documenting the story of two ordinary families in Milwaukee, Wisconsin - families whose breadwinners had lost well-paying factory jobs. Relying on the belief that hard work is the key to a good living and better life, the Stanleys and the Neumanns, like millions of others, went about pursuing the American dream. But as they found other jobs, got re-trained, and worked any time and overtime, they still found themselves on a downward slope, working harder and longer for less pay and fewer benefits, facing devastating challenges and difficult choices.
    This week, Moyers revisits his reports on the Stanleys and Neumanns - whose stories Bill updates on the July 9 Frontline report "Two American Families." He also talks with the authors of two important books about how the changing nature of the economy is affecting everyone: Barbara Miner, a public education advocate who's been following the decline of her own Milwaukee hometown for nearly 40 years; and author, activist and playwright Barbara Garson, who's published a number of books about the changing lives of working Americans. Her most recent is Down the Up Escalator: How the 99% Live in the Great Recession.

  • 9:00 am
    Washington Week with Gwen Ifill [#5301H] President Obama is just six months into his second term and for most of that time his ambitious agenda has been overshadowed by a number of unexpected events and controversies. From the attention on gun legislation in the wake of the Newtown school shooting, to the string of controversies involving the IRS, Justice Department and NSA leaker Edward Snowden, the president seems to be facing hurdles and distractions at every turn.
    As the president tries to focus on addressing his key legislative priorities, Washington remains extremely polarized and the partisan divide on Capitol Hill continues. Even the bipartisan immigration reform bill that passed the Senate faces an uphill battle in the House.
    The Washington stalemate isn't going unnoticed by voters. A recent Gallup Poll found nearly 4 in 5 Americans, 78%, disapprove of the way Congress is handling its job, while the President's approval ratings continue to be under 50%.
    With the Congressional midterms just 16 months away, the White House recognizes the clock is ticking and the window for Mr. Obama to advance his priorities could be closing. The same is true for lawmakers up for re-election in 2014 who are aware every vote they cast could help or hurt their chances of reelection.
    The White House is also dealing with foreign policy challenges in Syria and escalating unrest in Egypt while the draw-down of US troops from Afghanistan continues.
    Gwen Ifill examines the successes and challenges for Congress and the Obama administration over the first half of 2013 plus takes a look ahead at the economic outlook for the remainder of the year with: Susan Davis of USA Today, John Dickerson of Slate Magazine and CBS News, David Wessel of The Wall Street Journal, and Jeff Zeleny of ABC News.

    POV [#2602H] Special Flight A dramatic account of the plight of undocumented foreigners at the Frambois detention center in Geneva, Switzerland, and of the wardens who struggle to reconcile humane values with the harsh realities of a strict deportation system. The 25 Frambois inmates featured are among the thousands of asylum seekers and illegal immigrants imprisoned without charge or trial, and facing deportation to their native countries, where they fear repression or even death. The film, made in Switzerland, is an expose of the contradictions between the country's compassionate social policies and the intractability of its immigration laws. duration 56:46   STEREO TVPG

    Intelligence Squared [#101] Are Elected Islamists Better Than Dictators? The popular uprisings of the Arab Spring have left a leadership void that Islamist parties have been quick to fill. A longtime supporter of former strongmen like Egypt's Mubarak and Tunisia's Ben Ali, the U. S. now faces the uncomfortable result of Arab democracy-the rise of Islamist parties that are less amenable to the West than their autocratic predecessors. Will the Islamists, who once embraced violence, slowly liberalize as they face the difficulties of state leadership? Or will it mean the growth of anti-Americanism and radicalization in the region? duration 56:46   STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: none)

    Nature [#2603H] American Eagle Unique to North America, the bald eagle is the continent's most recognizable aerial predator, with a shocking white head, electric yellow beak and penetrating eyes. In the 1960s, this symbol of the United States became an emblem of environmental degradation as the pesticide DDT and other human pressures brought it to the brink of extinction. Following their protection as an endangered species, bald eagles have come roaring back. Photographed by Emmy-winning cinematographer Neil Rettig, this film focuses on the drama of the nest. Even in the best of times, it's a surprisingly tough struggle to maintain a one-ton home and raise chicks until they can hunt on their own. duration 55:16   SRND51 TVPG

    Nova [#3714] Dogs Decoded Dogs have been domesticated for longer than any other animal on the planet and humans have developed a unique relationship with these furry friends. We treat our pets like a part of the family and we feel that they can understand us in a way other animals cannot. Now, new research is revealing what dog lovers have suspected all along: dogs have an uncanny ability to read and respond to human emotions. What is surprising, however, is new research showing that humans, in turn, respond to dogs with the same hormone responsible for bonding mothers to their babies. How did this incredible relationship between humans and dogs come to be? And how can dogs, so closely related to fearsome wild wolves, behave so differently? It's all in the genes. Nova investigates new discoveries in genetics that are illuminating the origin of dogs - with revealing implications for the evolution of human culture as well. Nova also travels to Siberia, where the mystery of dogs' domestication is being repeated - in foxes. A 50-year-old breeding program is creating an entirely new kind of creature, a tame fox with some surprising similarities to man's best friend. This film reveals the science behind the remarkable bond between humans and their dogs and spurs new questions about what this could mean for our relationships with other animal species. duration 56:46   STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: DVI)

When a disaster strikes and people are buried, these search dogs will be the first on the scene to save you. We follow individuals who have adopted shelter dogs and are now volunteering at a hospital. These once-forgotten dogs are helping people heal by bringing comfort to patients and their families, not to mention joy to doctors and nurses.
