    Global Voices [#525] Poor Us: The Animated History of Poverty Do we know what poverty is? The poor may always have been with us, but attitudes towards them have changed. Beginning in the Neolithic Age, Ben Lewis's film takes us through the changing world of poverty. You go to sleep, you dream, you become poor through the ages. And when you awake, what can you say about poverty now? There are still very poor people, to be sure, but the new poverty has more to do with inequality? duration 53:34   STEREO

    AfroPop: The Ultimate Cultural Exchange [#603] War Don Don In the heart of Freetown, the capital of Sierra Leone, United Nations soldiers guard a heavily fortified building known as the 'special court." Inside, Issa Sesay awaits his trial. Prosecutors say Sesay is a war criminal, guilty of heinous crimes against humanity. His defenders say he is a reluctant fighter who protected civilians and played a crucial role in bringing peace to Sierra Leone. With unprecedented access to prosecutors, defense attorneys, victims, and, from behind bars, Sesay himself, WAR DON DON puts international justice on trial for the world to see, finding that in some cases the past is not just painful, it is also opaque. duration 1:26:46   STEREO TV14 (Secondary audio: none)

    Serving America: Memories of Peace Corps This program highlights the experiences of some of the nearly 3000 volunteers who served during the early years of the Peace Corps. A mix of archival film and photographs, along with personal stories from former volunteers, tells a story of service and idealism. Interviews convey the volunteers' passion, commitment and bravery as they lived and worked in developing countries, including South and Central America, Africa and the Middle East. From almost fatal obstacles to spiritual epiphanies, these men and women describe their transformative experiences. Donna Shalala, former US Secretary of Health and Human Services (1993-2001), recounts the adventure of serving in Iran between 1962 and 1964. "What the Peace Corps really did is make me a citizen of the world," says Shalala. duration 26:44   STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: none)

    Religion & Ethics NewsWeekly [#1722] LIVING WAGES IN THE OVERSEAS GARMENT INDUSTRY - The world's garment industry is so competitive, factory owners typically say they cannot afford to pay their workers anything above the usually pitiful third-world countries' minimum wage. But one successful American garment maker is conducting what could be an expensive experiment. He is betting that if his customers know the Dominican Republic workers who make his sportswear are well paid, they will continue to buy his line, even if it ends up costing more. Fred de Sam Lazaro reports from the Dominican Republic and the University of Notre Dame.
    KENTUCKY NUNS VERSUS THE BLUEGRASS PIPELINE - When an energy company wanted to build an underground pipeline through central Kentucky to help carry toxic by-products of fracking to the Gulf coast, an order of aging Catholic nuns, the Sisters of Loretto, fought back. The nuns feared a pipeline accident could poison the land they have farmed for 200 years, so - as Judy Valente reports - the Sisters mounted a vigorous public campaign to divert it. And they succeeded.

    Nature [#3105#] The Funkiest Monkeys 25 years ago, filmmaker Colin Stafford-Johnson travelled to Sulawesi in Indonesia and fell in love with crested black macaques. These feisty monkeys are beach bums with punk hairstyles, expressive faces, copper colored eyes and some very unusual habits, making them some of the most charismatic of all monkeys. They only exist on this one island. Learning that their numbers have dropped dramatically, he makes a return visit to find out why and to see if he can help. Teaming up with a local expert and making a film about them and their plight allows him to share their story with the local schools and communities in the hope that a new understanding of the wonderful creatures in their midst will make them want to help, as well. duration 56:46   SRND51 TVPG (Secondary audio: DVI)

    African Americans: Many Rivers to Cross [#101B] The Black Atlantic (1500-1800) The Black Atlantic explores the truly global experiences that created the African American people. Beginning a full century before the first documented '20-and-odd' slaves arrived at Jamestown, Virginia, the episode portrays the earliest Africans, both slave and free, who arrived on these shores. But the Trans-Atlantic slave trade would soon become a vast empire connecting three continents. Through stories of individuals caught in its web, like a ten-year-old girl named Priscilla who was transported from Sierra Leone to South Carolina in the mid-18th century, we trace the emergence of plantation slavery in the American South. The late 18th century saw a global explosion of freedom movements, and The Black Atlantic examines what that Era of Revolutions-American, French and Haitian-would mean for African Americans, and for slavery in America. duration 1:07:22   STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: DVI)
