    Focus On Europe [#3141] Gambling Priests Bankrupt Archdiocese Pope Francis has more to worry about than the Vatican's finances. This summer, two Slovenian archbishops submitted their resignations, and an entire archdiocese of the Catholic Church faces financial ruin in the wake of failed speculation. The details:
    SLOVENIA: WHEN PRIESTS GAMBLE - Since the fall of Communism, Slovenia's Catholic Church had built up a business empire. But it collapsed like a house of cards when the financial crisis struck.
    SWEDEN: A REGISTER FOR ROMA - The Swedish police drew up illegal lists of Roma. The lists' purely ethnic criteria suggest racist motives. The police in the southern Swedish province of Schonen titled the controversial register "Travelers". With more than 4000 names, it details the exact genealogy of many Roma families in Sweden. Individuals were put on the register without even being under suspicion of breaking the law. After a Swedish newspaper publicized the list's existence, the police force has filed charges against its own members.
    SWITZERLAND: AN ALPINE LODGE WARDEN'S GLACIER PROJECT - An unusual contribution to climate protection - the manager of a Swiss mountain lodge takes nature as her theme in a piece of "land art". The people who operate Switzerland's alpine lodges are increasingly worried about global warming. If the glaciers recede as expected, huge investments will be needed to maintain access to the cottages. With the aid of some students and under scientific supervision, the woman who operates the Cavardiras lodge in Graubunden canton shows the consequences the thaw will have for the Alps.
    GREECE: THE ORPHANS OF ALEXANDROPLI - The tragic story of the refugee boat that sank off the coast of Lampedusa has shocked people across Europe. The disaster took more than 200 lives, many of them children. Europe faces a dilemma: as its borders are tightened, refugees become increasingly desperate to reach the continent. As a result, places like Lampedusa and the River Evros in Greece are subject to growing bottlenecks of asylum seekers. Thousands of people have already drowned. We look at an orphanage in Greece that takes in children who have lost their parents on one of the many perilous crossings.

    Latino Americans [#105] Pride and Prejudice/Peril and Promise Prejudice and Pride - Witness the creation of the proud "Chicano" identity as labor leaders organize farm workers in California, and as activists push for better education opportunities for Latinos, the inclusion of Latino studies and empowerment in the political process. Peril and Promise - Examine the past 30 years, as a second wave of Cubans and hundreds of thousands Salvadorans, Nicaraguans and Guatemalans flee to the U.S., creating a debate over undocumented immigrants that leads to calls for tightened borders, English-only laws and efforts to brand the undocumented as a drain on public resources. Simultaneously, the Latino influence is booming in business, sports, media, politics and entertainment. Latino Americans become the largest and youngest growing sector of the American population. duration 1:56:46   STEREO TVPG-VL (Secondary audio: none)
