    Lost Years of Zora Neale Hurston Writer, folklorist and anthropologist Zora Neale Hurston, a celebrated (and sometimes controversial) figure of the Harlem Renaissance, first rose to prominence with Mules and Men (1935) and cemented her reputation soon after with her 1937 masterwork, Their Eyes Were Watching God. However, few know about the woman behind this widely read and highly acclaimed novel - particularly the last 10 years of her life.
    This program delves into the writer's life, work and philosophies, concentrating on her very productive but often overlooked, final decade. Interviews with Hurston experts and colleagues, letters from Hurston, and archival photographs piece together this fascinating chapter in the life of an American literary icon.

    American Masters [#2205H] Trumbo Dalton Trumbo, was a successful Hollywood screenwriter who, after refusing to testify before the House Committee on Un-American Activities, was convicted and jailed. He was unable to work in his own name for more than a decade, writing 30 scripts under pseudonyms. He won an Oscar in 1956 for The Brave One as Robert Reich. In 1960 he was recognized publicly again when Otto Preminger credited him on Exodus and Kirk Douglas did so on Spartacus. These actions marked the end of the blacklist. As late as 1993, Trumbo was awarded a posthumous Academy Award for Roman Holiday. This film is adapted from his son Christopher's recent play based on the letters Trumbo wrote during the "Red Scare." duration 1:26:46   STEREO TVPG

    Global Voices [#608] Behind The Rainbow More than a decade after the inauguration of Nelson Mandela, South Africa was slated to become the host of the World Cup in 2010 - a public affirmation of its break with its violent legacy of apartheid. But while the founding Freedom Charter of the African National Congress (ANC) outlined ideals for "a better life for all," harsh inequalities still existed, from xenophobic attacks to corruption scandals and township protests. As a new decade looms, post-apartheid South Africa is at a crucial and dangerous crossroads.
    With the 2009 presidential election as a backdrop, this documentary gives a previously untold account of the country's political problems, struggles, and realities. It explores the transition of the ANC from a liberation organization into South Africa's ruling party, through the evolution of the relationship between two of its most prominent veterans, Thabo Mbeki and Jacob Zuma.
    Exiled under apartheid, they were once brothers in arms. Under Mandela's administration, they loyally labored to build a non-racial state. Now, they are bitter rivals. Their duel threatens to tear apart the ANC and the country, as the poor desperately seek hope in change and the elite fight for the spoils of victory. The film features key interviews with ANC current and former leaders, including Jacob Zuma, Kgalema Motlanthe, Pallo Jordan, Thabo Mbeki, and Terror Lekota. Examining previous events that the country's political decision-makers have agreed to bury for the sake of democracy, this is a behind-the-scenes look at South Africa's seemingly miraculous transformation.

Next, the team heads to Albuquerque, NM, where they meet with lobbyist and co-founder of the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta, Tom Rutherford. Afterward, as they head back on the Road, an unfortunate event happens-an unexpected mechanical issue leads the Green RV to catch fire.
