    Carrier [#101] All Hands On a bright May morning, more than 5,000 sailors and Marines bid farewell to their loved ones before the mammoth USS Nimitz pulls out of Coronado, California, and sets a course for Hawaii and beyond. Among the men and women who live and work on board are an airman who describes the ship as a small town; a pilot who considers the ship a powerful instrument of diplomacy; a sailor who questions "why we're fighting to defend someone else's freedom when we barely have our own"; a cook who dishes out 15,000 meals a day; and an airman who has just learned that his girlfriend is pregnant. duration 56:46   STEREO TV14 (Secondary audio: none)

    Carrier [#102] Controlled Chaos The men and women of the USS Nimitz live beneath the runway of a major airport. They sleep on the roof of a nuclear power plant. It's a perilous environment. Their only bulwark against danger and chaos is to bond with their units on board the ship. The "Shooters," who launch the jets, have a "Circle of Trust"; the Ordies (ordnance personnel) pride themselves on being a "mafia"; the F-18 squadrons - the Black Aces, the Hoboes and the Marine Red Devils - are tight fraternities. duration 56:46   STEREO TV14 (Secondary audio: none)

    Religion & Ethics NewsWeekly [#1651] MARCH ON WASHINGTON 50TH ANNIVERSARY - August 28th marks the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington and Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. 's "I Have a Dream Speech." Many say King's dream is still not fully fulfilled. The Trayvon Martin case highlighted ongoing racial divides, but in some areas, the case has also been a catalyst for new discussions about race. In Sanford, Florida, where neighborhood watch volunteer George Zimmerman shot Martin, pastors have been building relationships across racial lines. Kim Lawton looks at that effort and how, as civil rights leader Vincent Harding says, inter-racial relationships were always part of King's dream.
    MORAL MONDAYS - For the past several months, protesters in North Carolina gathered outside and inside the General Assembly in Raleigh and in other cities to object to what they felt is an extremely unjust budget and far right social agenda. As Lucky Severson reports, Moral Mondays was initiated by Pastor Richard Barber, head of the North Carolina NAACP and includes a number of clergy from different denominations who have signed a statement saying many of the new laws passed by the recently elected legislature and signed by the governor adversely affect the poor, aging and children. More demonstrations are planned for the anniversary of the March on Washington.

    America Reframed [#122] Flying: Confessions of a Free Woman| Part 2 In this two part documentary, master storyteller Jennifer Fox lays bare her own turbulent life to penetrate what it means to be a free woman today. As her drama of work and relationships unfolds over four years, our protagonist travels to over seventeen countries to understand how diverse women define their lives when there is no map. Employing an ingenious new camera technique, called "passing the camera", Fox creates a documentary language that mirrors the special way women communicate. Over intimate conversations around kitchen tables from South Africa to Russia, India and Pakistan, she initiates a groundbreaking dialogue among women, illuminating universal concerns across race, class and nationality. duration 2:23:31   STEREO (Secondary audio: none)

Forced out of Vietnam by the war 30 years ago, many residents felt their homes were being taken away from them once again. duration 56:46   STEREO (Secondary audio: none)
