  • 4:30 am
    Focus On Europe [#3137] Gibraltar: Row Over The Rock POLAND: SHOULDERING HISTORY - With creativity and muscle power, a German artist has approached the difficult subject of Polish history. The result is quite literally moving. Polish history is not an easy matter. Christian Jankowski, a German conceptual artist with Polish roots, demonstrates that. For his latest project, he had members of the Polish national weight-lifting team lifting national monuments in Warsaw. When it came to some politicians, even the strongest musclemen were unsuccessful.
    GIBRALTAR: ROW OVER THE ROCK - In the Gibraltar dispute, the tone between Spain and Britain has become harsher. The conflict is now one absurdity richer. The latest point of contention is an artificial reef. Spain is accusing Gibraltar of using it to keep Spanish fishing vessels away from waters belonging to Gibraltar. But Gibraltar says the reef serves only to protect marine animals. It's an argument Spain knows all too well, because environmental protection also plays a role in the dispute over ships refueling on Gibraltar. Because fuel is tax-free on the 6. 5-square-kilometer outcrop, several million tons of it are stored and sold on Gibraltar. Spain says that's too great an environmental risk.
    GREECE: THE SUCCESS STORY OF MYKONOS - On the Greek island of Mykonos, a great season is coming to an end: 60 percent more tourists, yachts and cruise ships came this summer alone. The slump in the North African tourist industry is an opportunity for crisis-plagued Greece, because Greeks are pinning their greatest hopes on tourism to get the country back on its feet. The major role model is the small island of Mykonos. The islanders have a number of tricks for attracting tourists. But in its publicity, the vacation paradise tries not to emphasize the fact that the island is a part of Greece.
    ROMANIA: THE SHADOW OF THE PAST - For the first time, Romania's judicial system is looking for those responsible for the mass murder of political prisoners during the communist era. The detention center in Ramnicu Sarat in eastern Romania was a dreaded place. Under the supervision of prison commander Alexandru Visinescu, intellectuals, members of the clergy and politicians who criticized the regime were detained here between 1956 and 1963. Now Romania's highest public prosecutor has started proceedings against the 88-year-old. Visinescu is said to have excelled in the mass murders of political dissidents. For victims and their relatives, the trial is only the beginning. More than 600,000 people in Romania were imprisoned on political grounds after World War II. One in five didn't survive imprisonment.
    BRITAIN: MESSAGES FROM THE BEYOND - Some people used to think they were a sign from the heavens, others that they were landing places for UFOs. Entire generations of esoterics have worked away at explaining the spectacular crop circles in the corn fields of England. Now, of course, we know that aliens, ghosts and supernatural powers had nothing to do with the patterns in the fields. They're man-made. Matthew Williams, an amateur pilot, and self-admitted dropout from the crop circle scene, has outed himself as one of the people who have used the simplest of means to create the world-famous circles in the summer. Now he says he wants to give up because he suffers from hay fever.

    Carrier [#109] Get Home-Itis A six-month absence places a heavy burden on relationships. The Navy holds seminars to counsel sailors on what to expect when they return home - and how to make the transition smooth. The "Tiger Cruise" ritual allows sailors to invite their family members aboard for the last leg of the deployment. duration 56:46   STEREO TV14 (Secondary audio: none)

    Carrier [#110] Full Circle As the Nimitz makes its final transit from Hawaii to California, the sailors and Marines on board prepare to return to their homes and families. For those still on board, the "Tiger Cruise" provides a buffer, but there's no such transition for those who fly home early from Hawaii. As the Nimitz returns to her home port of San Diego, sailors and Marines reflect on the deployment and take stock of what they've achieved. Was the mission accomplished? There are tearful, joyful reunions at the pier. duration 56:46   STEREO TV14 (Secondary audio: none)
  • 7:00 am
    As Long As I Remember: American Veteranos Examines the steep personal toll and enduring legacy of the Vietnam War on three artists from south Texas: visual artist Juan Farias, author Michael Rodriguez and actor/poet Eduardo Garza. Through the personal histories and experiences of these Chicano veterans, the film examines the role art plays in the sorting of memories, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), activism and the current conflict in Iraq. It chronicles their upbringing in the Mexican-American community, their military service in Vietnam, and their lives after the war. Farias, Rodriguez and Garza's poignant and powerful recollections illuminate the minority experience in the US Army and US Marine Corps at a time when Mexican Americans accounted for approximately 20% of US casualties in Vietnam, despite comprising only 10% of the country's population. duration 55:55   STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: DVI)
