    Pioneers In Aviation: The Race to the Moon [#103] The Race to the Moon Documents the era of the 1950s and 1960s, as post-war America finds itself locked in an ideological struggle with the Soviet Union-an adversary whose philosophy promised the destruction of capitalism. In 1957, the Soviet launch of Sputnik suddenly shifted the Cold War battlefield to space and heralded the decade-long Race to the Moon. As did his predecessors, President Kennedy turns to the captains of his Aviation Industry-now in the autumn of their years-with the century's greatest aerospace challenge. Highlights include:
    * Newly discovered footage documenting President Kennedy's 1963 visit to McDonnell Aircraft in St. Louis, in celebration of the Mercury Space Program.
    * Emotionally charged footage of Astronaut John Glenn's triumphant return to McDonnell Aircraft, after orbiting the Earth- to share his achievement with "Mr. Mac" and his employees.
    * Photographs of the unknown 19-year-old Marilyn Monroe, modeling the cabin features of the new Douglas DC-6.
    * Boeing Test Pilot Tex Johnston's legendary barrel-roll of the "Dash-8 0"-prototype of the Boeing 707-over Lake Washington during the 1955 Seattle Gold Cup Races.

    Frontline [#3202] League of Denial: The Nfl's Concussion Crisis The National Football League, a multibillion-dollar commercial juggernaut, presides over America's indisputable national pastime. But the NFL is under assault as thousands of former players and a host of scientists claim the league has covered up how football inflicted long-term brain injuries on many players. In a special two-part investigation, FRONTLINE, in association with ESPN's "Outside the Lines," joins prize-winning journalists Steve Fainaru and Mark Fainaru-Wada of ESPN to reveal the hidden story of the NFL and brain injuries, drawn from their forthcoming book "League of Denial." What did the NFL know and when did it know it? What's the truth about the risks to players? What can be done? The FRONTLINE investigation details how, for years, the league denied and worked to refute scientific evidence that the violent collisions at the heart of the game are linked to an alarming incidence of early onset dementia, catastrophic brain damage, death, and other devastating consequences for some of football's all-time greats. duration 1:56:46   STEREO TVRE (Secondary audio: none)

    Moyers & Company [#304H] David Simon: My Country Is A Horror Show! David Simon, journalist and creator of the TV series The Wire and Treme, talks with Bill Moyers about the divide between the rich and poor and the crisis of capitalism in America. Just days after President Barack Obama's annual State of the Union address, it's a reality check from someone who artfully uses television drama to report on the state of America from an entirely different perspective - the bottom up.
    It was a speech Simon made last November at the Festival of Dangerous Ideas in Sydney, Australia, that inspired Moyers to ask him to make this week's appearance. His remarks at the Sydney Opera House, titled "There Are Now Two Americas. My Country Is a Horror Show," went viral and reverberated through cyberspace.
    "America is a country that is now utterly divided when it comes to its society, its economy, its politics," Simon said. "That may be the ultimate tragedy of capitalism in our time, that it has achieved its dominance without regard to a social compact, without being connected to any other metric for human progress... And that notion that capital is the metric, that profit is the metric by which we're going to measure the health of our society is one of the fundamental mistakes of the last 30 years."
    "Are we all in this together or are we all not?" Either we realize that everyone must pull together so that no one is left behind, Simon concluded, "Or we're going to keep going the way we're going, at which point there's going to be enough people standing on the outside of this mess that somebody's going to pick up a brick, because you know when people get to the end there's always the brick. I hope we go for the first option but I'm losing faith."

    Washington Week with Gwen Ifill [#5331H] Looking to re-energize his sluggish second term, President Obama called 2014 a 'year of action' in his State of the Union address on Tuesday. He urged Congress to be part of the action to help middle-class families, but vowed to sidestep their partisan politics through the use of executive orders to boost the economy and address income inequality.
    President Obama hit the road this week in a series of campaign-style events across America to reiterate his action agenda including a measure to raise the federal minimum wage and by signing an order to establish a savings program for employees without retirement plans.
    Even before the national address, House Speaker John Boehner warned the president not to act unilaterally. Boehner promised that the House GOP would monitor the president's actions and if they believe Mr. Obama is overreaching, he added "There are options that are available to us."
    Meanwhile House Republicans gathered in Maryland this week for their annual retreat to discuss how to rebuild America and let voters know they aren't only the opposition party, but also the alternative party.
    With just three years left in office, low approval ratings and determined opposition from Republicans, can Mr. Obama advance his modest priorities even if he can't crack through the divisions in Congress?
    Gwen Ifill will lead a roundtable discussion on the promises, politics and possible pitfalls of the president's 2014 action agenda with:
    John Dickerson of Slate Magazine and CBS News,
    Susan Davis of USA Today,
    Christi Parsons of Tribune Newspapers, and < br>Todd Purdum of Politico and Vanity Fair .

    KQED NEWSROOM [#114H] The Struggle Over Income Inequality, Napolitano Leads US Olympic Delegation and River Restoration Under Fire
    The Struggle Over Income Inequality
    President Obama made income inequality the cornerstone of his sixth State of the Union address this week, talking about ways to lift the middle class. But low-income families and individuals may face another hurdle. Annual cuts of $800 million to the federal food stamp program are expected as part of the new farm bill, which passed the House this week and moves on to the Senate on Monday.

    Janet Napolitano Leads U.S. Olympic Delegation
    Next week University of California President Janet Napolitano will lead the U.S. delegation to the Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia. As former Secretary of Homeland Security, Napolitano is well suited to the job, given heightened concerns about terrorism at the Games and Russia's decision to grant asylum to NSA leaker Edward Snowden. The two countries are also at odds over Russia's harsh stance against LGBT rights, and the 10-member delegation that Napolitano is leading has three openly gay athletes, including tennis great Billie Jean King and ice skater Brian Boitano. Scott Shafer sat down with Napolitano to discuss the Olympics and her day job as head of UC.

    With Drought, River Restoration Under Fire
    Drought legislation introduced by Republican Rep. Devin Nunes of Tulare proposes pumping more water for farmlands from the Sacramento-San Joaquin River Delta. The bill also calls for a halt to the restoration of the San Joaquin River, which requires increased water flows to reintroduce chinook salmon cut off from stretches of the river for more than 50 years. Spencer Michels reports from the San Joaquin Valley on the restoration of California's second-longest river.

    Boy Scouts of Harlem 759 2010 is the centennial year of the Boy Scouts of America, and national public television viewers can now see the power of this transformative organization. This film is a charming and gentle exploration of how the Boy Scouts - along with two weeks at a magnificent summer scout camp - can change a group of boys from Harlem into young men. Through these boys' eyes, we see camaraderie, structure, and personal growth in a world that is quite removed from their homes in Harlem. But the real story is the personal growth they experience, and how one formative week can change a boy's outlook on life forever. The images are enhanced by the haunting and emotional music soundtrack of a soloist performing a traditional spiritual. Over 50 million Americans have had connections to, or have been members of this formative organization. duration 56:46   STEREO TVG

    Evolution of the Nation of Islam This documentary chronicles the creation, rise and evolution of Elijah Muhammad's Nation of Islam - a movement that challenged black Americans to reclaim their lost identity. As Americans, both black and white, sacrificed life and property to end segregation Elijah Muhammad preached a unique brand of separation with a do-for-self philosophy. While Malcolm X and Muhammad Ali exemplified the uncompromising stance that the Nation of Islam maintained, the movement headed for an abrupt change. Upon the death of Elijah, his son Wallace Muhammad became the new leader and ushered in a new thinking. Through honest dialogue with the original high-ranking members of the Nation of Islam we get an in-depth look at life after Elijah Muhammad. The program takes the viewer on a remarkable journey chronicling how a once separatist movement evolved into a world community of universal humanity. duration 56:46   STEREO TVPG

At the film's historical center is an analysis of the massive impact of the national urban renewal program of the 1950s and 1960s, which prompted the process of mass suburbanization and emptied American cities of their residents, businesses, and industries. Those left behind in the city faced a destitute, rapidly de-industrializing St. Louis, parceled out to downtown interests and increasingly segregated by class and race. The residents of Pruitt-Igoe were among the hardest hit. Their gripping stories of survival, adaptation, and success are at the emotional heart of the film. duration 1:29:46   STEREO (Secondary audio: none)
