    European Journal [#3136] Village of thieves: evidence burning of Picasso, Monet and Matisse Artwork It was a robbery that was to have tragic consequences for the art world. Police say a gang of Romanian thieves stole works by Picasso, Monet and Matisse - but couldn't sell them. So they burned them. A trial is underway right now in Bucharest to determine whether all of the stolen paintings went up in flames. The details:
    ROMANIA / THE NETHERLANDS: VILLAGE OF THIEVES - The people accused of stealing works by world-famous artists last year in Rotterdam are now on trial in Bucharest. In the suspects' home village in eastern Romania just about everyone knows them. In the Netherlands, it was the art theft of the century. In just two minutes, the robbers stole paintings by Matisse, Monet and Picasso from a special exhibition at the Rotterdam Kunsthal. But afterwards police say the thieves couldn't sell the artworks - so they burned at least some of them, in an attempt to hide evidence of the crime. Regardless of how the trial turns out, a Romanian production company has purchased the rights to make a movie about the crime. Residents of the suspects' home village, Carcaliu, say the group's members were well-known to them. The stolen artworks are still missing - but it's not yet clear whether all of them were destroyed.
    POLAND BANS KOSHER MEAT PRODUCTION - Poland's parliament has banned the production of kosher and halal meat - and the country's Jewish community says the decision is outrageous. Polish meat producers are also disappointed. Poland is the EU's largest exporter of kosher and halal meat - but the country's constitutional court and parliament decided that the method of slaughter is illegal. Jews and Muslims in Poland consider the ban an affront to their religion, and they're trying to find a legal loophole that will allow meat production to continue. Poland's chief rabbi has threatened to resign unless the ban is lifted. The move by parliament caught many abattoir owners by surprise. They believed that the law would never make it through the legislature.
    GERMANY: UNESCO THREATENS TO REVOKE RHINE VALLEY'S CULTURAL HERITAGE STATUS - The Lorelei Plateau and the rock cliffs that tower above the Rhine River may lose their status as a World Heritage Site - because of a summer toboggan run. It takes just two minutes to zip down the toboggan course - but the fact that the course is there at all was enough for UNESCO officials. At their latest meeting, they demanded that the toboggan course be removed. The track has never been popular with environmental activists - but in the end, developers managed to get all the required permits, and went ahead with the project. They have no intention of removing it. The dispute has put the World Heritage status of the Upper Middle Rhine Valley at risk.
    DENMARK: TROUBLE IN EUROPE'S WEDDING PARADISE - Denmark is famous for making it easy for most people to get married - especially couples from two different countries. These "bi-national" marriages can be complicated in Europe - particularly if one of the partners is from a non-EU country.

    Carrier [#107] Rites of Passage The last day in the Gulf is the last chance to drop bombs before the Nimitz heads home. The jets take off, laden with ordnance, and return hours later, still carrying the same bombs. As the Nimitz crosses the equator, the entire ship takes part in the Crossing the Line Ceremony, an ancient maritime ritual. In the middle of flight operations, a storm arises in the South Indian Ocean. The deck pitches violently, turning the already dangerous task of landing on the carrier into a nail-biting, heart-pounding drama. duration 56:46   STEREO TV14 (Secondary audio: none)

    Carrier [#108] True Believers This episode explores the many expressions of faith onboard the USS Nimitz: faith in self, faith in one's shipmates, faith in the mission of the ship and the president's call to arms. The major religious groups on board are Catholic and Protestant, but there also is a coven of Wiccans, as well as a Pentecostal group whose newest member is challenged by the duality of his beliefs and the temptations of liberty as the ship drops anchor in Perth, Australia. duration 56:46   STEREO TV14 (Secondary audio: none)

    Faces of America [#104] Know Thyself Episode Four takes up the search for the guests' ancestries where the historical record leaves off and links their distinctive family histories to the broader history of "the family of man." Combining the documented stories of some of the guests' last known ancestors with DNA evidence, the series travel backward through time to reveal both distant relatives and surprising shared ancestral connections. Elizabeth Alexander learns that she is a direct descendent of Charlemagne, and that her paternal roots are not only European, but Jewish. Meryl Streep and Mike Nichols discover that they are distant cousins, as do Yo-Yo Ma and Eva Longoria. Interwoven with these stories and others is the journey of the host, Henry Louis Gates, Jr. as he and his father and brother undertake an historic project to have their entire genomes mapped, and thereby to learn everything they possibly can about their own family. This episode offers a compelling and thought-provoking meditation on the importance of ancestry, the meaning of family and the role of both in creating identity. duration 56:46   STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: none)
