    Lincoln@Gettysburg In 1863 Abraham Lincoln proved himself a master of a new frontier - not on the battlefields of the Civil War, but in his "high-tech" command center: the War Department Telegraph Office, America's first "Situation Room." The "Internet" of the 19th century, the telegraph gave Lincoln new powers to reshape leadership and wield personal control across distant battlefields. The results of Lincoln's pioneering experiment in electronic leadership led to the rebirth of America on the fields of Gettysburg - both in the battle that turned the tide of the Civil War, and in a few words that recast the American ideal as a national creed: the Gettysburg Address. This program will unfold the greatest turning point in American history: the rebirth of a nation and the dawn of the information age. duration 55:16   STEREO TVPG

    The Gettysburg Story This Story begins in June 1863 with the start of the Gettysburg campaign in Virginia and follows the route of the Confederate and Union armies as they move north along the Blue Ridge mountains and across the Mason-Dixon line to meet on the rolling ground surrounding the small Pennsylvania town.
    The program is narrated by acclaimed actor Stephen Lang, and was produced with the cooperation of the 6000 acre Gettysburg National Military Park. Dynamic, evocative, breathtaking aerial and time lapse imagery highlight legendary places of the battlefield - Little Round Top, Devils Den, The Railroad Cut, Cemetery Ridge, the fields of Pickett's Charge - and visually tell the epic Gettysburg Story like no other film before.

    Religion & Ethics NewsWeekly [#1712] Making It Against the Law to Help the Homeless - More and more cities trying to clean up their downtowns are finding new ways to discourage the homeless from gathering there. Lucky Severson reports on controversial new ordinances in cities around the country that make it illegal for caregivers to feed and otherwise minister to those living on downtown streets. Thanksgivukkah - In a rare calendar convergence, the first full day of Hanukkah, the eight-day-Jewish festival of lights, falls on Thanksgiving Day this year. According to some calculations, that will not happen again for nearly 80,000 years. The American Jewish community has dubbed the convergence, "Thanksgivukkah." Kim Lawton looks at some of the ways people are celebrating, including holiday mash-up recipes and merchandise, such as turkey-shaped menorahs. She also talks to Jewish leaders who say underneath the fun, Thanksgivukkah highlights important values such as religious freedom, gratitude and charity. duration 26:46   STEREO TVRE (Secondary audio: none)

    Nature [#3103] Parrot Confidential Meet Lou. Abandoned in a foreclosed home, Lou is one of thousands of parrots in need of rescue. From the wilds of Costa Rica to suburban America, a loveable, quirky cast of parrots reveal their unforgettable tales and the bittersweet world they share with humans. Their outrageous intelligence and uncanny ability to communicate in any language has made parrots one of the world's most popular pets. But unlike dogs and cats, parrots have not been domesticated. Hard wired for the wild, their ear-shattering squawks and unpredictable behavior are designed for the rain forest, not the suburbs. Add a lifespan of 50 plus years to their intense need to bond and a life in captivity often ends in disaster. With shelters and sanctuaries bursting at the seams, too many birds like Lou have no place to go. duration 56:46   STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: none)

    African Americans: Many Rivers to Cross [#105B] Rise! (1940-1968) Rise! examines the long road to civil rights, when the deep contradictions in American society finally became unsustainable. Beginning in World War II, African Americans who helped fight fascism abroad came home to face the same old racial violence. But this time, mass media-from print to radio and TV-broadcast that injustice to the world, planting seeds of resistance. And the success of black entrepreneurs and entertainers fueled African American hopes and dreams. In December 1955, Rosa Parks refused to give up her seat to a white man on a city bus in Montgomery, Alabama, heralding the dawn of a new movement of quiet resistance, with the Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. as its public face. Before long, masses of African Americans practiced this nonviolent approach at great personal risk to integrate public schools, lunch counters and more. As the civil rights movement scored one historic victory after another, non-violence was still all too often met with violence-until finally, enough was enough. By 1968, Dr. King, the apostle of non-violence, would be assassinated, unleashing a new call for "Black Power" across the country. duration 1:23:03   STEREO TVPG-V (Secondary audio: DVI)

    Global Voices [#608] Behind The Rainbow More than a decade after the inauguration of Nelson Mandela, South Africa was slated to become the host of the World Cup in 2010 - a public affirmation of its break with its violent legacy of apartheid. But while the founding Freedom Charter of the African National Congress (ANC) outlined ideals for "a better life for all," harsh inequalities still existed, from xenophobic attacks to corruption scandals and township protests. As a new decade looms, post-apartheid South Africa is at a crucial and dangerous crossroads.
    With the 2009 presidential election as a backdrop, this documentary gives a previously untold account of the country's political problems, struggles, and realities. It explores the transition of the ANC from a liberation organization into South Africa's ruling party, through the evolution of the relationship between two of its most prominent veterans, Thabo Mbeki and Jacob Zuma.
    Exiled under apartheid, they were once brothers in arms. Under Mandela's administration, they loyally labored to build a non-racial state. Now, they are bitter rivals. Their duel threatens to tear apart the ANC and the country, as the poor desperately seek hope in change and the elite fight for the spoils of victory. The film features key interviews with ANC current and former leaders, including Jacob Zuma, Kgalema Motlanthe, Pallo Jordan, Thabo Mbeki, and Terror Lekota. Examining previous events that the country's political decision-makers have agreed to bury for the sake of democracy, this is a behind-the-scenes look at South Africa's seemingly miraculous transformation.
