    Powder & The Glory The story of women's entrepreneurship through the lens of the creation and development of the rival business empires of Elizabeth Arden and Helena Rubinstein. When they first opened their shops 100 years ago, cosmetics were worn primarily by prostitutes and performers, and businesses were run mostly by men. These two indomitable immigrants changed all that and transformed the way we look at ourselves. Starting from nothing in one of the few fields open to them, these creative women pioneered what is today the $150 billion global health and beauty industry. At the same time, they were feisty rivals. Although they lived and worked only blocks apart in New York for over 50 years, by design they never met. Whenever one launched a successful product, the other sought to outdo her rival with a bigger success, and as soon as possible. Their competing companies defined the business of beauty, making cosmetics both newly respectable and, finally, indispensable. Along the way they developed many advertising and marketing techniques that became part of the business landscape, and they themselves became household names and cultural icons. Their influence extended beyond the realm of cleansing creams and face powders to encompass trends in art, architecture and popular culture. duration 1:26:46   STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: DVI)

Ashley is a deeply conflicted American model scout, and 13-year-old Nadya, plucked from a remote Siberian village and promised a lucrative career in Japan, is her latest discovery. As the young girl searches for glamour and an escape from poverty, she confronts the harsh realities of a culture that worships youth -- and an industry that makes perpetual childhood a globally traded commodity. duration 1:26:46   STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: none)

    Washington Week with Gwen Ifill [#5339H] Tensions remain high between Russia and the West in the wake of Moscow's annexation of Crimea. During meetings with European Union leaders this week, President Obama urged allied nations to step up their commitment to Ukraine and stand united against further Russian aggression. He also had some pointed words about Russia's standing in the world. Peter Baker of The New York Times will have the latest on efforts to de-escalate the crisis through diplomatic maneuvers, political pressure and additional economic sanctions.
    Doyle McManus of the Los Angeles Times will report on the first-ever meeting between President Obama and Pope Francis - two of the world's most popular leaders - and the goal of their goodwill visit.
    The Supreme Court heard arguments this week in two cases challenging the contraception coverage provision of the Affordable Care Act. The lawsuits filed by arts and crafts chain Hobby Lobby and Conestoga Wood Specialties claims that for-profit businesses should be able to "opt out" from providing contraception coverage if it's contrary to their religious rights. Joan Biskupic of Reuters will explain why this case is about more than just religious convictions.
    The White House announced on Thursday that more than 6 million people have signed up for private health insurance plans under the Affordable Care Act. The surge in enrollments comes just days after the Obama administration extended the March 31 deadline for people to sign-up on the healthcare marketplace. Alex Wayne of Bloomberg News will report on the administration's recent push to get more people to sign up and why some Democrats have rolled out a series of policy proposals to improve the president's health care law.

    Push Dance Company Explores Bayview Tranformation
    A new piece about the transformation of the Bayview-Hunters Point area in San Francisco by the Push Dance Company, known for its focus on social issues, premieres this weekend.

    Moyers & Company [#312H] Public Schools for Sale? Public education has become big business. Privatizing schools could yield profits worth hundreds of billions. Diane Ravitch says that has to stop. As an assistant secretary of education under the first President Bush, she was an advocate of school choice and charter schools and supported the No Child Left Behind initiative of the second President Bush. But after careful investigation, she changed her mind, and has become, according to Salon.com, "the nation's highest profile opponent" of charter-based education.
    On this week's program, she tells Bill Moyers, "Privatizing public education is not a good project. [Instead] we should all do what we can to, first of all, address the most serious problem in America, which is the huge gaps of income, the huge inequalities gap in both wealth and income."
    She believes, "Where our public schools are in trouble it's because the community's in trouble. And instead of breaking up public schools and sending the kids off into the hands of some entrepreneurs, we should be addressing those problems, the needs and problems of the children."
    Public education, she says, "is one of the foundation stones of our democracy. So an attack on public education is an attack on democracy."
    Diane Ravitch is America's preeminent historian of public education. Her newest book is Reign of Error: The Hoax of the Privatization Movement and the Danger to America's Public Schools.
