    Secrets of the Dead [#1001] Churchill's Deadly Decision In the summer of 1940 Winston Churchill faced a terrible dilemma. France had just surrendered and only the English Channel stood between the Nazi's and Britain. Germany was poised to seize the entire French fleet, one of the biggest in the world. With these ships in his hands, Hitler's threat to invade Britain could become a reality. Churchill had to make a choice. He could either trust the promises of the new French government that they would never hand over their ships to Hitler. Or he could make sure that the ships never joined the German navy by destroying them himself. Secrets of the Dead: Churchill's Deadliest Decision reveals the darkest side of Britain's Finest Hour. Some call his decision a turning point in the war, others call it a terrible betrayal and a war crime. This is the story of what Churchill did next, and why; and how 1,300 French sailors died as a result in what the French still call 'our Pearl Harbour'. In the words of French survivors, some of whom still regard Churchill as a war criminal, and one of the British sailors who opened fire on his former allies, this is the forgotten story of Churchill's deadliest decision - to sink the French Fleet. duration 56:46   STEREO TVPG-V (Secondary audio: none)

    Moyers & Company [#311H] Who's Buying Our Midterm Elections? The Supreme Court is poised to issue another big decision on campaign finance, one that could further open the floodgates to unfettered and anonymous contributions, just as the Citizens United case did 4 years ago. Bill Moyers talks with investigative journalists Kim Barker and Andy Kroll, who have made following the money - campaign money - their business.
    Three times as much money already has been raised for this year's midterm elections as 4 years ago, when the Citizens United decision was announced. "As soon as you get into office, you have to start raising money for the next election," Kim Barker tells Moyers. "It means you can't take a stand on an issue that might prove unpopular... It just sort of means that we're going to get more of the same, more of this gridlock, which benefits a lot of these same billionaires that are putting money into the system in the first place."
    Andy Kroll adds, "I had a conversation with a progressive senator who is not a fan of super PACs and at the time did not have his own sort of individual super PAC... And I said, 'What is this like when you're going to go up against an opponent who does have a super PAC and does have a motivated one percenter in his corner?' And he said, 'It's like going into a boxing ring. I'm wearing boxing gloves. And the other guy has an Uzi.'"
    Kim Barker has been with the independent, non-profit news organization ProPublica since 2010, the year of Citizens United. Andy Kroll works in the Washington bureau of Mother Jones magazine.

    Washington Week with Gwen Ifill [#5338H] * As tensions between Russia and Ukraine escalate over Crimea, President Obama stepped up pressure on Russia with a second wave of sanctions targeting President Vladimir Putin's chief of staff and 19 other high-level individuals on Thursday. Mr. Obama urged the Kremlin to respect Ukraine's new government and scale back its military presence in Crimea or risk further isolation from the international community.
    * Russia wasted no time retaliating against the US and European Union sanctions with its own restrictions banning some American lawmakers and senior White House officials from entering the country. David Sanger of The New York Times will explain how this high-stakes tug-of-war between Russia and the West is testing American foreign policy and the president as well as spotlighting the US role in the world. Michael Crowley of Time Magazine will have analysis of the broader implications of Putin's actions on other pressing diplomatic negotiations that include the US, Syria and Iran. * Democrats and Republicans are facing an interesting dilemma heading into the 2014 midterm elections. In an election year where Congress and President Obama are unpopular with voters, how do you rally the base? Dan Balz of The Washington Post and Beth Reinhard of The Wall Street Journal will look at the unique debates over political strategy going on amongst Democrats and Republicans with less than 8 months to go until election day.

    KQED NEWSROOM [#121H] The Debate Over E-cigarettes, The Highway to Hydrogen and Artist Wendy MacNaughton
    The Debate Over E-cigarettes
    The use of e-cigarettes is growing rapidly, but smoking them in public may soon be illegal in San Francisco and Santa Clara counties. The electronic devices provide nicotine, but produce vapor instead of smoke. Supporters say they are a less harmful alternative to cigarettes and can be a way to help people quit. Opponents are concerned about the rising use by teens and say they may contain harmful toxins. The FDA does not currently regulate e-cigarettes. Los Angeles and Sunnyvale are among the cities in California to restrict them.

    Guests:
    •Marisa Lagos, San Francisco Chronicle
    •Rachel Grana, UCSF Center for Tobacco Control Research and Education

    John D. Rockefeller: American Experience For decades, the Rockefeller name was despised in America - associated with John D. Rockefeller Sr.'s feared monopoly, Standard Oil. By the end of his life, Rockefeller had given away half his fortune - but even his vast philanthropy could not erase the memory of his predatory business practices. His only son, John D. Rockefeller Jr., would dedicate his life to recasting the family image. In the quest for redemption and respectability, Junior would give away hundreds of millions of dollars, and would insist that his six children behave impeccably. Their contributions transformed America. When he died at age 86, Junior left his six children and 22 grandchildren an invaluable inheritance: a name that stood not for corporate greed, but for "the well-being of mankind."
