    Best Friends: The Power of Sisterhood This moving documentary celebrates the uniquely powerful bond between women friends. It features heartfelt reflections - from humorous to joyful to poignant - from women spanning the generations: childhood friends, college friends, neighbors and colleagues. Despite embarking on separate paths, these women have maintained friendships based on mutual respect and encouragement. Actress and author Jamie Lee Curtis also discusses the importance of girlfriends in her life. duration 26:46   STEREO TVG

    War Zone/Comfort Zone Women account for roughly 14 percent of the active-duty U.S. military and more than 24 percent of the National Guard, yet they often receive less than a hero's welcome upon their return to civilian life. Many face poverty, homelessness and joblessness; deal with the psychological and physiological effects of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder from military sexual trauma and combatrelated injuries; and often receive poor service from a Veterans Administration ill-equipped and, in some cases, unwilling to help them. The Emmy? -nominated documentary WAR ZONE/COMFORT ZONE uncovers the plight of these veterans through the intense and personal stories of four women veterans coping with life after their military service. Each seeks a sense of normalcy and peace without the benefit of a comprehensive support system. WAR ZONE/COMFORT ZONE weaves together intimate interviews with the story of two women - Shalini Madaras and Joy Kiss - struggling to establish transitional housing for homeless female veterans in Bridgeport, Connecticut, despite virulent community opposition. duration 56:04   STEREO TVPG

    Wings for Maggie Ray This documentary pays tribute to the remarkable life and legacy of Margaret "Maggie" Ringenberg (1921-2008), a US Army Air Force WASP (Women's Air Service Pilot) and renowned long-distance aviation racer. Re-enactments, archival photos and film, and insightful interviews from those closest to her, shed light on Maggie's fearlessness, confidence, competitive nature, drive and determination. The program covers the Indiana native's numerous aviation adventures during and after WWII, including ferrying personnel and supplies, test-flying new planes, and serving as the lead pilot in around-the-world and London-to-Sydney races. duration 57:05   STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: none)

    Religion & Ethics NewsWeekly [#1728] GUN VIOLENCE AND THE FAITH COMMUNITY - This weekend, congregations across the nation are holding special services to pray for an end to gun violence. In the wake of the tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut, and other mass shootings, a growing interfaith movement has been mobilizing for new gun restrictions. Kim Lawton reports on the movement and also talks with faith-based activists who are opposing any new gun control laws. (Originally aired November 15, 2013).
    THE LIFE OF DOROTHY DAY - A radical who was arrested often for her protests against war and injustice, Dorothy Day converted to become a devout Catholic and a champion of the poor.

The US Catholic bishops have unanimously endorsed an investigation into whether she should be named a saint. Deborah Potter examines the life of this woman, who Cardinal Timothy Dolan of New York says is indeed "a saint for our times." (Originally aired February 8, 2013).

    Nature [#2811] Survivors of the Firestorm The bush fires that tore through the Australian state of Victoria in February 2009 incinerated over a million acres of land, including key mountain ash forest ecosystems.

Kangaroos and koalas, wombats and wallabies, endangered possums and gliders, lizards, echidnas, birds of all kinds, and even fish that lived among these eucalypts were overcome by the flames. Millions died. But burned and traumatized survivors tenderly nursed back to health at wildlife hospitals showed a remarkable ability to bounce back, and the environment an extraordinary capacity for healing. duration 56:46   STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: none)

    POV [#2610] The World Before Her This is a tale of two Indias. In one, Ruhi Singh is a small-town girl competing in Bombay to win the Miss India pageant - a ticket to stardom in a country wild about beauty contests. In the other, Prachi Trivedi is the young, militant leader of a fundamentalist Hindu camp for girls, where she preaches violent resistance to Western culture, Christianity and Islam. Moving between these divergent realities, the film creates a lively, provocative portrait of the world's largest democracy at a critical transitional moment - and of two women who hope to shape its future.
