    America Reframed [#125] Big Enough In this intimate portrait, several dwarfs who appeared in Jan Krawitz and Thomas Ott's 1982 film Little People welcome the camera into their lives once again. Through a prism of "then and now," the characters in the film confront physical and emotional challenges with humor, grace, and sometimes, frustration. duration 1:26:46   STEREO (Secondary audio: none)

    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

    I Am What would you do if you found out that your child is gay? Having lost the opportunity to come out to her own mother, an Indian lesbian filmmaker, now living in the US, travels across India to meet with parents of other gay and lesbian South Asians. I AM is a personal and revealing film that journeys to a country where being gay was until very recently a criminal and punishable offence. With daring determination and humor, parents in India share untold stories of their gay and lesbian children that have thus far remained in the realm of secrecy and silence. I AM is an innovative film that takes more than simply creative risks. The story and characters might be local, but it reflects a challenge that is facing a global community. It is a film about a contemporary and relevant social justice issue that questions assumptions and brings new international dialogue around sexuality and human rights. duration 56:50   STEREO TVG

    Moyers & Company [#230H] The Faces of America's Hungry Here in the richest country on earth, 50 million of us - 1 in 6 Americans - go hungry. More than a third of them are children. Debates on how to address hunger - in both Congress and the media - are filled with tired cliches about freeloaders undeserving of government help, living large at the expense of honest, hardworking taxpayers. But the documentary "A Place at the Table" paints a truer picture of America's poor.
    On an encore broadcast Kristi Jacobson, one of the film's directors and producers, and Mariana Chilton, director of the Center for Hunger-Free Communities, join Bill to break these stereotypes apart and share how hunger hits hard at people from every walk of life. "The cost of food insecurity, obesity and malnutrition is way larger than it is to feed kids nutritious food," Jacobson tells Bill. "There's no opportunity for people who are low-income to really engage in our democracy," says Chilton. "I think they're actively shut out."

    Washington Week with Gwen Ifill [#5305H] Gridlock in Washington is nothing new, but is it getting worse? As Congress prepares to start its month-long August recess, it is on track to being the least productive in history. Is the political polarization that has gripped Capitol Hill to blame or is the lack of results intentional? On issue after issue from the debt ceiling to immigration reform to gun control, Democrats and Republicans have failed to reach any compromises or comprehensive solutions.
    On Friday, the House will vote for the 40th time to roll back the Affordable Care Act passed in 2010. While repealing or dismantling "Obamacare" remains a top priority for the GOP, the chances it will happen are almost non-existent with the current Democratic-led Senate.
    Fissures within the Republican Party are also contributing to gridlock. The division was evident last year during Mitt Romney's failed presidential run. Fast forward to today and new battles are brewing between mainstream conservatives like Senator John McCain and New Jersey Governor Chris Christie and libertarians and other Tea Party members like Senators Rand Paul and Ted Cruz.
    Meanwhile President Obama continues his campaign-style push for his second-term agenda. He's also gearing up for another showdown with lawmakers over the debt ceiling that could potentially lead to a government shutdown in September.
    Gwen Ifill examines what's really going on in Washington and what it will take to get the White House and Congress to breakthrough the legislative gridlock and away from what looks to be the new normal in governing and politics with Dan Balz of The Washington Post and author of "Collision 2012", Jackie Calmes of The New York Times, and John Dickerson of Slate Magazine and CBS News.

(Originally broadcast April 12, 2013).

    THIS WEEK in Northern California [#2438H] August 2, 2013 Guest Host: Scott Shafer.
    IMMIGRATION REFORM - Silicon Valley leaders and California Republicans are calling on Congress to pass comprehensive immigration reform. Citing family values, entrepreneurship and faith, major GOP donors and high tech CEOs are weighing in on the debate and pressing for decisive action.
    BART NEGOTIATIONS - BART and its unions continue negotiations as the threat of a strike looms. After a 4 1/2 day walk-out in July, Gov. Brown ordered both sides back to the bargaining table, but they appear to remain split over salaries and benefits. Commuters and transit agencies are preparing for a potential shut down Monday morning.
    OAKLAND SURVEILLANCE - Against protests by civil rights activists and privacy advocates, the Oakland City Council has unanimously approved a controversial surveillance center. They say the ability to continuously monitor video surveillance will help police respond to emergencies and make Oakland safer. Critics say the Domain Awareness Center could threaten civil liberties and turn Oakland into a police state.
    FBI BUST - In one of the biggest nationwide busts of child sex trafficking, the FBI has rescued 105 youth and arrested more than 100 alleged pimps. The FBI designated the Bay Area as a top hot spot for child sex trafficking; of the 76 cities included in the bust, the highest number of children were rescued in San Francisco, and the second-highest number of pimps were arrested.
    Guests: Carla Marinucci, San Francisco Chronicle; Tom Vacar, KTVU; Josh Richman, Bay Area News Group; and Aimee Allison, San Francisco Department on the Status of Women.

    Out of Order Now more than ever, American citizens are discontented and disillusioned with national politics, with approval ratings for Congress consistently ranking low regardless of the party in power. Senior politicians also note the disappearance of the collegiality they once shared with peers of differing political ideologies. As a result, the ability to discuss issues from varying points of view and negotiate solutions, appears to be fading from the American political process.
    Among many topics, this program addresses the decline in civil discourse and the news media's role in it, partisan gridlock, gerrymandering, vanishing commitment to reasonable compromise, the vilification of moderates and declining civic engagement. It relies on interviews with a broad range of political experts and observers from journalists, academics and political strategists to senior elected officials. They include: journalist Bob Schieffer (CBS News), Sen. Mark Warner (D-VA), Sen. Susan Collins (R-MA), Fmr Sen. Evan Bayh (D-IN), Fmr Sen. Alan Simpson (R-WY), Fmr Sen. John Warner (R-VA) .
