    Frontline [#3116H] Secrets of the Vatican Pope Benedict made history when he announced his resignation, becoming the first Pope to step down voluntarily in 600 years. In his wake he left a bitterly divided Vatican mired in scandals. But is Benedict's successor, Pope Francis, taming the forces that helped destroy Benedict's papacy? Is he succeeding in lifting the Church out of crisis?
    Nearly a year in the making, this film goes inside the Vatican - one of the world's most revered and mysterious institutions - to unravel the remarkable series of events that led to the resignation that shook the world. Through interviews with those at the very heart of what happened - cardinals, priests, convicted criminals, police, prosecutors and whistle-blowers - Frontline gives a first-hand account of the final days of Benedict's papacy and the current battle to set the Church on a new path under Francis.

  • MORNING
  • 6:30 am
    Crisis of Faith Narrated by Grammy-winning singer-songwriter Amy Grant, this program examines how slavery and biblical interpretations on its morality divided religious denominations and ultimately, the nation, in the Civil War era. Most Southerners deemed slavery integral to their way of life, and the Bible seemingly reinforced this belief. Christian figures in both the Old Testament and the New Testament never object to, nor do they condemn, the practice. Abolitionists, meanwhile, viewed slavery as an evil inconsistent with values of Christianity. In interviews, prominent religious scholars and historians discuss the evolution of arguments over slavery - from the rhetoric of freedom and equality stoked by the American Revolution; to the divisions of the Methodist, Baptist and Presbyterian churches into northern and southern factions; to the dividing of the nation and the eruption of Civil War. duration 28:46   STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: none)
  • 7:00 am
    Damrell's Fire On a mild November weekend in 1872, a spark in a downtown basement eventually reduced Boston's commercial center to 65 acres of rubble. But the damage, including the loss of life, could have been much worse. This program traces the extraordinary life of John S. Damrell, the courageous fire chief who directed the defense that saved the city's densely populated neighborhoods. He would forever change firefighting history by shifting the nation's focus from saving not only property, but lives. Concerned with the water supply, lack of fire equipment and delayed response times, Damrell advocated long-term improvements in construction practices and the establishment of inspection services with the authority to enforce fire and building codes. This program includes a virtual model of 1872 Boston, turn-of-the-century archival films, rare full-color lithographs, evocative original music and trenchant interviews with historians and firefighters. duration 56:46   STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: DVI)

    Roadtrip Nation [#1001H] Breaking Out of the Comfort Zone Joined by the common desire to get out of their comfort zones, a new team of Roadtrippers embarks on a cross-country journey to interview innovative Leaders who can provide insight on building a fulfilling life. Roadtripper Jackie has just earned a bachelor's degree in chemistry at the University of Texas, and left her home in Mexico to do so. With her family's high hopes hinging on her success, she seeks to find a balance between her academic demands and outside interests. Recent-grad Megan has always wanted to become a teacher, but feels she must break out of her insulated surroundings to determine whether that dream is still right for her. Zachariah, an animated student at Ohio State, seeks to channel his many interests into one concrete path. After meeting each other (and their 36-foot home-on-wheels), the crew hits the beach to interview Dr. Graeme Rae, the Chief Scientist for Surfline.com, who discusses leaving the world of academia to help surfers score waves. duration 26:46   STEREO TVPG

    • KQED Plus OTA ? Optimistically planned maintenance: Fri 12/05 mid-morning

      (DT54.1 thru 54.5) Assuming that the weather and road conditions permit, we plan to do a bit of maintenance on our KQEH transmitter the morning of Friday 12/05… hopefully 10am-11am-ish, but could be a bit later. Most of the work should not affect the outgoing signal, but there will need to be a cable swap […]

    • Mon 11/03/14: Work on KQED Plus tower (DT54)

      Another station needs to do maintenance on its equipment on the tower on Monument Peak, requiring that we switch our DT54 Over the Air signal from the main antenna to the auxiliary when the work starts, then back to the main antenna at the conclusion. These switches should cause momentary outages only, and most receivers […]
