    America Reframed [#216] Rachel Is Filmmaker Charlotte Glynn moves home to chronicle her sister Rachel's last year in school. Rachel is developmentally disabled, and the resulting film, Rachel is, moves past the safety of political correctness and into the most intimate and honest moments in their family's life. Rachel is mysterious, funny, difficult and full of contradictions but she wants what most people her age want -- to move out of her mother's house. This dream of independence seems impossible. Rachel can't be left alone and the social services needed for her to live an "adult life" are unavailable. duration 1:26:46   STEREO (Secondary audio: none)

    Dreamers Theater Ths uplifting performance documentary follows a group of cognitively challenged teens and young adults as they rehearse and stage the original musical, Assuming Assumptions. The play dramatizes the issues faced by individuals with special needs in the hopes of increasing awareness about this population and their capabilities. Members of this Richmond, VA-based acting troupe live with a variety of developmental disabilities, including autism, Down's Syndrome, Asperger's Syndrome and other high-functioning disorders or differences. The doc intercuts real-life stories together with similar scenes from the play: a young couple with Asperger's syndrome go on a date, a young man with Down's Syndrome works his shift at a local restaurant and another young man misses his bus stop and loses his way home. duration 26:32   STEREO TVG

    Moyers & Company [#318H] Time to Get Real On Climate Change As the White House issues a frightening National Climate Assessment reporting that global warming is real and that "summers are longer and hotter than any living American has ever experienced," Bill Moyers talks with a scientist who has sounded the alarm for decades.
    For nearly 35 years, David Suzuki has brought science into the homes of millions on the Canadian television series, The Nature of Things. Along the way he has become a godfather of the environmental movement, and in a poll of his fellow Canadians last fall he was named that country's most admired figure. Nonetheless, his outspoken views on climate change and the government's collusion with the petrochemical industry in developing the Canada's oil-rich tar sands have made him the target of relentless attacks from his nation's prime minister, corporations, and right-wing ideologues.
    "We've failed to shift the perceptual lenses through which we see our place on the planet," Suzuki tells Moyers. "We thought if we stop that dam, whoa, we've won, that's it. But we didn't point out why we are stopping the dam. We just saw the battle as the issue. And we never saw it as simply part of the symptoms of a greater change that's needed. The challenge of environmentalism is really about seeing our place in the world in the way that humans have always known up until very, very recently - that we're part of nature and utterly dependent on the natural world for our wellbeing and survival."
    Suzuki believes that the current situation is not hopeless but says, "Our politicians should be thrown in the slammer for willful blindness. I think that we are being willfully blind to the consequences for our children and grandchildren. It's an intergenerational crime."

    This American Land [#305] Backyard Wilderness, Switchgrass Biofuel, Restoring Native Plants In Iowa and Tennessee, we see a new energy future where gas comes from grass. Researchers are working with different types of grasses and other cellulosic plant material, learning more about what it's going to take to grow our own fuel. In the first of a series of stories about the biofuel revolution, host Bruce Burkhardt takes us to the frontlines where farmers grow switchgrass, sourgum and miscanthus specifically as renewable fuel sources. Unlike most wilderness areas that are remote and hard to access, the San Gabriel Mountains are within easy reach of the Los Angeles urban sprawl. Less than an hour from downtown, the San Gabriels are home to alpine forests, chaparral hills, clear trout-filled streams and the often snow-capped 10,068-foot Mt. Baldy, L.A. County's tallest peak. Most of the range is in the Angeles National Forest, which gives L.A. County more than one-third of its drinking water, 70 percent of its open space, and scenic and critical natural habitat. The mountains are now the centerpiece of an imaginative plan for a 600,000-acre national recreation area with large portions of the National Forest, 36,000 acres of additional wilderness, 44 miles of wild and scenic rivers and creeks, and park-poor lower river urban areas, an idea that would bond L.A.'s 17 million residents even closer to the natural wonders in their backyard. Many students in the frontier-like setting of Kanab, Utah are from families who have been in the region for generations. But some are learning for the first time the importance of protecting native plants, tackling invasive species, and coming up with a balance for the human needs of farming and raising livestock. Targeting the invasive-threatened and protein-rich "winter fat" plant, they harvested seeds, sprouted them in their high school greenhouse, then transplanted them to an acre-sized test exclosure in the magnificent Grand Staircase Escalante National Monument. With instruction from experts, they mapped each plant with portable GPS devices so they could track their progress. Western wildfires can move swiftly and leave massive destruction. Researchers also have to move quickly, after a fire, to begin the restoration of water and wildlife in these ecosystems. We see how some powerful new tools are making their job a little easier. duration 26:46   STEREO TVG

    "Documented" filmmaker Jose Antonio Vargas
    Jose Antonio Vargas was twelve years old when his mother sent him from the Philippines to live in the Bay Area with his grandparents. After graduating from Mountain View High School, his career as a journalist took off, but Vargas was troubled by the secret of his status as an undocumented immigrant. As he watched students and activists around the country push for the passage of the Dream Act in 2010, Vargas decided to get involved himself. His story is told through his new film, "Documented," opening in select Bay Area theaters on May 16. Thuy Vu sits down with Vargas to hear about the film and his story.

    JORDAN RIVER BAPTISM SITE - Final preparations are underway for Pope Francis' visit to the Holy Land, May 24-26. During his brief stop in Jordan, the pope has invited Syrian refugees and disabled young people to join him for a meal at the Jordan River Baptism site. Located near the Dead Sea across the border from Israel, the site is revered by many Christians as the place where John the Baptist lived and where Jesus was baptized. Although there are other baptism sites inside Israel, archeological ruins dating back to the 5th century were discovered here after the 1994 peace treaty between Jordan and Israel. The area has now been opened for pilgrims and tourists. Kim Lawton recently visited Jordan's baptism site and tells its story.

    Nova [#4111H] Why Sharks Attack In recent years, an unusual spate of deadly shark attacks has gripped Australia, resulting in five deaths in 10 months. At the same time, great white sharks have begun appearing in growing numbers off the beaches of Cape Cod, Massachusetts, not far from the waters where Steven Spielberg filmed the ultimate shark fright film, Jaws. What's behind the mysterious arrival of this apex predator in an area where they've rarely been seen for hundreds of years? Are deadly encounters with tourists inevitable? To separate fact from fear, Nova teams up with leading shark experts in Australia and the United States to discover the science behind the great white's hunting instincts. Do sharks ever target humans or is each attack a tragic case of mistaken identity? Can a deeper understanding of shark senses lead scientists to design effective deterrents and help prevent future attacks? With shark populations around the world plummeting, scientists race to unlock the secrets of these powerful creatures of the deep in their quest to save people -- and sharks. duration 55:16   STEREO TVPG
