    Secrets of the Dead [#1002] Deadliest Battle Germany's invasion of the Soviet Union in 1941 was the largest troop offensive in military history. And the Battle of Stalingrad is arguably the deadliest single battle the world has ever seen. The eventual Russian victory has long been lauded as a shining example of Stalin's military genius. He is said to have baited a much more powerful and technologically advanced German army with a carefully executed withdrawal, then caught the Nazis unprepared in a vicious city-block-by-city-block counterattack that decimated the German forces. By the time the battle was over, more than 1 million lives had been lost and the course of the war had been permanently altered. But 70 years after the battle was fought, newly uncovered documents, survivor accounts, and stunning archival footage are revealing a very different picture of a forced retreat, not a tactical one, and of fiercer fighting in the countryside that has previously been suggested. Secrets of the Dead: Deadliest Battle tells the true story of the battle that turned World War II, and established the Soviet Union as a world superpower for the looming Cold War. duration 56:46   STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: none)

    European Journal [#3132] Greece's million refugees are considered undesirables GREECE'S MILLION REFUGEES - Greece is being overwhelmed by refugees. A total of about a million immigrants are now in the country. They have no passports, and most are living in run-down camps. Few of them will be granted asylum. They're considered undesirables. And recently, the police and coast guard have been especially harsh on refugees who arrive in boats. The authorities try to head them off before they reach Greek waters.
    KOSOVO: A CONTROVERSIAL RELEASE - Next summer, the EU Commission hopes to begin talks with Kosovo about an association agreement. One of the conditions of that agreement is that Kosovo must reconcile its differences with neighboring Serbia. But a draft Kosovo amnesty law is causing controversy. The law would grant an amnesty to about 40,000 Serbs who'd worked for illegal Serbian institutions in the region - including the police and the judiciary. But there will also be an amensty for Kosovo Albanians convicted of various crimes. Journalists and intellectuals are accusing the government of using the amnesty to avoid responsibility for some serious accusations. The amnesty may also include criminals who are now under investigation by the EU Rule of Law Mission (EULEX) in Kosovo. The mission's primary goal is to work with Kosovo authorities to help root out corruption and organized crime.
    SERIES: EUROPE ON THE EDGE - Part 3: Spain - La Gomera: Publicly-funded Burials: La Gomera is one of the Canary islands - Spanish territory that lies off the northwest coast of Africa. The local authorities have taken an unusual approach to funerals: they're paid for with public funds. More than ten years ago, all the local residents were given burial insurance. That's rare in Europe, and especially in Spain - where funerals, cremations, coffins and funeral flowers cost a lot of money. But as Spain struggles with its economic crisis, some are asking whether public money for burials might be put to better use.
    GREECE: HOPING FOR ASYLUM - Greece is still reeling from the effects of the international financial crisis - and no-one knows that better than the poorest of the poor in Greece: those who've sought asylum there. People from Syria or Afghanistan make their way to Greece via Turkey - and hope to be accepted by other EU countries. But the Greek Coast Guard treats these people not as asylum-seekers, but as illegal immigrants. A number of boats filled with refugees have capsized off the Greek coast, a number of those on board drowned. The international human rights organization Amnesty International has accused the Greek police and coast guard of systematic violations of EU law, for their active pursuit and deportation of refugees. Greece grants asylum to only about one-percent of all refugees on its territory. That's the lowest figure in the EU.
    TURKEY: THE ROCKING IMAM - An imam from the mountains around Ka has an unusual role model: the late Queen frontman Freddie Mercury. Now the cleric is founding his own band with two old rockers, and singing about his love of Allah and Muslim mysticism. In his 'normal' life as an imam, he takes care of a small village congregation not far from the city of Antalya. He likes to break with convention. For example, he married a Christian woman. That cost him his job temporarily on one occasion. But the religious authorities have actually shown some tolerance for his rock music. The imam wants to use that music to transform the image of his profession.

    Sweet Tornado: Margo Jones and the American Theater Although few know her name today, theater producer-director Margo Jones left a rich cultural legacy. During the 1940s and '50s, Jones -nicknamed the "Texas Tornado" for her larger-than-life personality -pioneered the regional theater movement, championed the work of new playwrights, including Tennessee Williams, and crusaded against the commercial domination of New York theater. But despite her idealism, energy, warmth and salesmanship, Jones struggled with loneliness, frustration and doubt. Her untimely death at age 43 came just six months following her triumphant world premiere of the play, Inherit the Wind. This program captures the remarkable life and times of this American visionary by weaving together theatrical representations and excerpts from three plays with interviews, archival photographs and rarely seen film footage. The powerful performance documentary, narrated by Academy Award-winner Marcia Gay Harden, stars Judith Ivey as Jones and Richard Thomas as Williams. duration 56:46   TVPG

    Stagestruck: Confessions from Summer Stock This documentary takes a nostalgic look back at the 26-year history of America's first summer stock theater, the Orleans Arena Theatre on Massachusetts' Cape Cod. It uses dramatic re-enactments, historical photos and engaging interviews with past members to capture the day-to-day challenges and joys of the summer stock experience. Beginning in 1950 and lasting until 1976, temperamental young actors and actresses would live together, work for pennies and do odd jobs in pursuit of refining their craft and creating a professional theatrical production each week. Author Kurt Vonnegut, an Orleans Arena Theatre alumnus, interjects humor and insight as he reflects on his time at the distinguished American art colony and its founders, Betsy and Gordon Argo. duration 56:30   STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: none)

    Still on the Road Twelve actors travel across 28 US cities on a seven month journey to bring classical theater to America. The Acting Company, a classical touring ensemble founded by John Houseman and Margot Harley, started with members of the first graduating class of the drama division of the Julliard School. Kevin Kline recalls Houseman's motivation being, "We couldn't just let them go out there and do garbage." In the Company's 37th season, twelve actors spend seven months on a cramped bus, lose a leading man, play 71 roles, and learn to work in spaces that won't hold their set. Throughout, they reconnect with their passion for performing, receive a great review in the New York Times, and teach high school and college students a new way to look at Shakespeare. As we follow the actors on tour and watch insightful conversations with Kevin Kline, Rainn Wilson and Harriet Harris, we learn that with the exception of Xbox and Wi-Fi on the bus, not much has changed - and that is just as it should be. duration 56:46   STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: none)
