    Sousa on the Rez: Marching to the Beat of a Different Drum Native American music may not conjure images of tubas, trumpets and John Phillip Sousa marches. Yet this vibrant musical tradition has been a part of Native American culture for more than 100 years. This program traces the origins of the 4 remaining multi-generational, community-based tribal bands: the Iroquois Indian Band from upstate New York, the Fort Mojave Tribal Band from Needles, Calif., the Zuni Pueblo Band from northwestern New Mexico and the Navajo Nation Band from Arizona. Combining profiles of contemporary bands with fresh historical research, it offers an unexpected and engaging picture of this little-known aspect of the Native music scene. duration 26:46   STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: none)

    AfroPop: The Ultimate Cultural Exchange [#602H] Upaj: Improvise 68-year-old artist Das exemplifies the elegance and mathematical precision of kathak, a classical dance of North India. Jason, a 32-year-old African-American tap dancer, hails from the freestyle, street-wise American tradition of contemporary tap. The two join forces and an unlikely friendship develops that bridges continents, generations, cultures and communities. duration 56:46   STEREO TVPG

    Ripple of Hope On the night of Dr. Martin Luther King's murder in 1968, Robert F. Kennedy was scheduled to make an appearance in an African-American neighborhood as part of his run for the Democratic presidential nomination. Upon hearing the tragic news, Kennedy was forced to make a crucial decision: Should he venture into the heart of the Indianapolis inner city and talk to the potentially volatile crowd gathered in a park? What could he say that would assuage their grief? Should he defy the city officials who ordered him to stay away? Would his life be in danger? A RIPPLE OF HOPE tells the dramatic story of that night, and how by keeping his promise to speak in Indianapolis, Robert F. Kennedy was able to help that city avert the violence that swept the rest of the country and make a profound statement about American race relations. duration 54:36   STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: none)

    Religion & Ethics NewsWeekly [#1721H] JORDAN'S SYRIAN REFUGEES - As world leaders gather in Geneva to discuss possible solutions to the Syrian crisis, one key factor is the huge number of refugees. Since March 2011, almost 2.5 million Syrians have fled the country in what the UN has called "the greatest humanitarian catastrophe of modern times." Many of the refugees - perhaps half of them - have ended up in neighboring Jordan. Kim Lawton traveled to Jordan to report on the plight of the Syrian refugees and how faith-based groups are trying to help.
    VACCINATION SCARE - Measles and whooping cough, contagious diseases once thought eradicated, are coming back in epidemic numbers nationally. Dr. John Snyder, a pediatrician in Amherst, Mass says the rising number of cases are due to parents delaying or forbidding their children's vaccinations. "These are diseases that frequently hospitalized, disfigured, permanently damaged or killed children on a regular basis," said Dr. Snyder. Deborah Potter reports on this growing public health problem and its ethical and religious implications.

    Nature [#3104] Meet The Coywolf The coywolf, a mixture of western coyote and eastern wolf, is a hauntingly beautiful carnivore found increasingly on the streets of North American cities. Its appearance is very recent -- within the last 90 years -- in evolutionary terms, a blip in time. The story of how it came to be begins in Canada but by no means ends there. It is a tale of how quickly adaptation and evolution can occur, especially when humans interfere. New York wildlife biologist Roland Kay is fascinated by this new hybrid, the product of a shifting gene pool that is now stabilizing. Kays tracks and photographs coywolves with remote motion sensor cameras, collects road kill and scat, and obtains tissue and bone samples from fur trappers, hunters, and others to unravel the mysteries that define this new species. duration 56:46   STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: none)

    Global Voices [#401] Cowboys In India In a remote and impoverished region of India, a London filmmaker is unaware of the trouble he will cause his two endearing, bumbling local guides as they investigate the Corporate Social Responsibility program of a high-profile, London-based mining company. The company plans to mine a local tribe's sacred mountain, and promises to bring all the benefits of modernity to the area. But many of the tribal people vow to fight, preferring a simple life in nature. As allegations accumulate, the filmmaker's ethical stance is put to the test as he tries to get his film "in the can." duration 1:17:21   STEREO (Secondary audio: none)

    American Masters [#2503] Margaret Mitchell: American Rebel No ordinary writer and no ordinary woman -- "Gone with the Wind" created two of the world's greatest lovers, Scarlett and Rhett, won a Pulitzer Prize in 1937 and has sold more than 30 million copies. Born into Atlanta's upper crust in 1900, Margaret Mitchell challenged stifling social restrictions at every turn. A charismatic force to be reckoned with, she had a great sense of humor, was one of Georgia's first newspaper women and was extremely generous with the money she made from "Gone with the Wind." She struggled with the changing role of women and the liberation of African Americans but also suffered from lifelong bouts of depression, until a tragic accident lead to her death in 1949. This film examines the amazing endurance of "Gone with the Wind" and reveals the seminal events of Mitchell's life through dramatic re-enactments based on her letters, as scenes from the movie weave together her life and her work. duration 56:46   STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: none)
