    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) .

    Dreamers Theater Ths uplifting performance documentary follows a group of cognitively challenged teens and young adults as they rehearse and stage the original musical, Assuming Assumptions. The play dramatizes the issues faced by individuals with special needs in the hopes of increasing awareness about this population and their capabilities. Members of this Richmond, VA-based acting troupe live with a variety of developmental disabilities, including autism, Down's Syndrome, Asperger's Syndrome and other high-functioning disorders or differences. The doc intercuts real-life stories together with similar scenes from the play: a young couple with Asperger's syndrome go on a date, a young man with Down's Syndrome works his shift at a local restaurant and another young man misses his bus stop and loses his way home. duration 26:32   STEREO TVG

    Focus On Europe [#3131] Air Conditioning for a Glacier Very few girls forced into prostitution dare to face their abusers in court. But in Britain, more and more of them are breaking their silence. They were victims of a gang, mainly of Pakistani-Muslim descent, that groomed underage girls for sexual exploitation. The details:
    ITALY: "SUSPENDED" PIZZA - In Naples, restaurants are returning to a very old tradition: customers get to eat pizzas another customer has paid for in advance. That makes "going out to eat" possible for people on low budgets. Italians can be very generous. They occasionally buy a coffee or pizza "sospeso", paying for two items, but consuming only one, leaving the other as an anonymous charitable donation for a poorer customer. The tradition existed sixty years ago when the young Sophia Loren baked pizza in a film, encouraging potential customers by saying they could eat now and pay in eight days. Decades later, the sospeso has returned as a sign of solidarity in the economic crisis.
    BRITAIN: SEX ABUSE RING CONVICTED - The city of Oxford has made headlines with the conviction and sentencing of a gang that groomed underage English girls with alcohol and drugs and forced them into prostitution. Five of the seven men have Pakistani Muslim roots. The other two had North African backgrounds. They targeted white, vulnerable, non-Muslim underage girls. Many in the perpetrators' and victims' proximity knew about the traffickers, but remained silent. The topic of Muslim perpetrators and non-Muslim victims, with its implications of racism, faces taboos in Britain. More than 50 such child grooming gangs are currently being investigated. Innocent Muslims from Oxford feel they've been unjustifiably placed under general suspicion.
    SWITZERLAND: AIR CONDITIONING FOR A GLACIER - Global warming threatens more and more mountainous regions in Switzerland. In Herbriggen in the Matter Valley in the canton of Valais, residents are frightened. Instead of babbling mountain brooks, the glacier is delivering rock fragments. A huge rock fall threatens the village. Residents of Engelberg in central Switzerland fear tourists could stop visiting their glacier, so they're coming up with creative ideas. A grotto carved into the Mount Titlis glacier is to be artificially cooled with an air conditioning system, and if necessary the mountain summit is to be covered with snow all year round.
    GREECE: THE GOVERNING PARTIES HELP THEMSELVES - The two major Greek parties, PASOK and Nea Dimokratia, are no role models for the country's citizens. Private households are expected to save money while the parties go deep into debt. Staff report unpaid wages, layoffs and rental arrears. What many Greeks find especially annoying is that, as collateral for generous bank loans, the parties have put up their state funding for the coming elections. There are also said to be irregularities in the granting of loans, especially by banks that are strongly influenced or controlled by the parties. The governing parties now want to grant all bank managers who extend loans to the parties immunity from prosecution.
    SERIES: EUROPE ON THE EDGE / GEORGIA: BOOM TOWN ON THE BLACK SEA - The seaside resort of Batumi is experiencing an unprecedented boom. Since the border to Turkey has been opened, increasing numbers of tourists are arriving - day and night. On Batumi's waterfront promenade, billions are currently being invested in hotels, night clubs and casinos. That attracts visitors from the entire region, from Armenia, Iran and Azerbaijan. But most of the male tourists come from Turkey to experience in Georgia what is forbidden to them at home. The resort and the Turkish consul general are facing a very new challenge.

    Story of India [#104] Ages of Gold Reaching the time of the Fall of Rome in the West, Michael Wood seeks out the amazing achievements of India's golden age from 300 to 1000 AD. Viewers learn how India discovered zero, calculated the circumference of the earth and wrote the world's first sex guide, the Kama Sutra. In the south, he visits the giant temple of Tanjore, meets the current "Senior Prince" and watches traditional bronze casters, working as their ancestors did 1,000 years ago. After sampling southern vegetarian food with a Tamil family, Wood goes on pilgrimage to a sacred mountain, where the annual fire festival was already famous in 700 AD. With unprecedented access to amazing festivals, age-old crafts and intimate family rituals, Wood shows how the Middle Ages laid the social and imaginative foundations of today's India. duration 56:46   STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: none)

    Story of India [#105] The Meeting of Two Oceans This episode tells the epic story of possibly the greatest of all clashes of civilization - the coming of Islam to the Indian subcontinent. The story culminates in one of the most glamorous ages of world civilization - the Moghul Empire. Michael Wood visits the shrines of wandering Muslim Sufi saints in Old Delhi, where people of all religions come to worship; viewers see desert fortresses in Rajasthan and the fabulous cities of Lahore and Agra, where Wood offers a new theory on the design of arguably the most famous building in the world, the Taj Mahal. He tells the story of Akbar, a Muslim emperor who decreed that no single religion could hold the ultimate truth and that humans should try to find the common basis of all creeds ("an idea that would be unthinkable today," says Wood). At its height in 1600, Moghul India had the world's highest GDP, but Akbar's dream of unity ended in a savage civil war. And waiting in the wings to pick up the spoils was a new invader - the British. duration 56:46   STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: none)

    Story of India [#106] Freedom Michael Wood's "10,000-year epic" reaches the time of the British occupation of India - the Raj - and India's struggle for freedom. Wood begins in South India, where viewers learn how the forerunner of modern multinational corporations, the British East India Company, used private armies to control much of the Indian subcontinent. In Calcutta, he traces the beginnings of a world economy and describes an 18th-century British general who "went native" and adopted Hinduism. He samples the magical culture - and food - of the city of Lucknow and outlines its terrible fate in India's great rebellion against the British in 1857. He recounts the story of the enigmatic Briton, "the rebel in the Raj," who helped found the Indian freedom movement. After the First World War, the Amritsar massacre helped speed the rise of Gandhi and Nehru and the fateful events that led to the partition of India in 1947 - an episode whose repercussions are felt to this day. The series ends as India rises again to be the global giant she has been for most of her amazing history. duration 56:46   STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: DVI)

      Another station needs to do maintenance on its equipment on the tower on Monument Peak, requiring that we switch our DT54 Over the Air signal from the main antenna to the auxiliary when the work starts, then back to the main antenna at the conclusion.
