    Global Voices [#122] Overbooked Sergio, a middle-aged Italian, and Youssef, from Morocco, work in a tiny office in Turin managing the weekly bus to the Magreb. Originally just a smart business idea, the agency is now much more than that. Documenting an odd pair in the middle of a changing world, "Overbooked" takes viewers into the chaotic, funny and sometimes tragic moments of the agency. duration 54:29   STEREO TVG

    Nature [#2805] Revealing The Leopard Leopards are the ultimate cat. They are the ultimate cat. They are the most feline, the most intelligent, the most dangerous, and, until recently, one of the least understood. Leopards hunt from South Africa to Siberia, from Arabia to Sri Lanka, and are the most widespread predator of their size on land. A leopard is a cat that walks by itself, unseen, secretively. They are the beautiful killers that live in the shadows. This film accumulates the evidence and puts together a psychological profile of this extraordinarily cunning cat. We learn how these cats rarely move without a completely premeditated strategy. duration 56:46   STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: none)

    Nature [#2809] Broken Tail: A Tiger's Last Journey Irish cameraman Colin Stafford-Johnson spent almost 600 days filming Broken Tail and his family for some of the finest tiger documentaries ever made. Broken Tail was the most charismatic tiger cub ever seen in Ranthambore, one of India's best protected tiger reserves. But suddenly and without warning Broken Tail abandoned his sanctuary and went on the run, moving through farmland and scrub until he was killed by a train nearly 200 miles from his home. To track Broken Tail's incredible journey, Colin and his soundman, Salim, retrace the tiger's path and piece together the cub's last days - and through his story reveal the fate of the few surviving tigers in India. duration 56:46   STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: none)

    Religion & Ethics NewsWeekly [#1647] AMERICA'S RESILIENT SIKHS - One year after the mass shooting of Sikh worshippers in Oak Creek, Wisconsin, Sikh leaders tell Religion & Ethics NewsWeekly's Managing Editor Kim Lawton that their community has become stronger since the attack, with more optimism and hope.

They are also lobbying for Pentagon permission for Sikhs in the military to wear their traditional turbans and unshorn hair.

    Last Harvest: The Yemenis of the San Joaquin This program explores the lives and times of Muslim immigrants from Yemen who settled in California's San Joaquin Valley. Yemeni migrant workers started coming to the US in the post-1965 era when the new immigration law opened the gates to non-Europeans. While most settled in the Detroit area, a small band of villagers from the mountainous Ibb region found work in the San Joaquin Valley where they tended the vineyards that produce a yearly bounty of internationally renowned table grapes. At the peak of the sojourn migration, some 5000 Yemenis were employed in the fields. Today only several hundred remain. This is their story. duration 22:28   STEREO TVG

    Global Voices [#318] Carmen Meets Borat Director Mercedes Stalenhoef follows the life of 17-year-old Carmen. She lives in a gypsy village in Romania, where the men spend their days tying one on and exchanging coarse words in her father's bar. In the evenings, she watches a Spanish soap opera and dreams of a better life in Spain, where the men are romantic and decent. Her plan to emigrate falls to pieces when an American film crew descends on her village to shoot "Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan." The village is used in the movie to show where the main character comes from and Borat depicts the villagers as primitive caricatures supposedly from Kazakhstan. duration 56:46   STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: none)
