    PBS NewsHour [#10929] V.A. HEARING - Eric Shinseki, the Secretary of the Department of Veterans Affairs, faced tough questioning on Capitol Hill today over recent allegations of falsified wait lists at VA hospitals that some claim caused the death of several veterans. Gwen Ifill reports on the hearing.
    HOMELAND SECURITY SECRETARY JEH JOHNSON - Today marked a day of somber remembrance in New York, as the 9/11 museum was dedicated and opened to the public. Tonight, in a Newsmaker interview, Judy Woodruff is joined by the US Secretary of Homeland Security Jeh Johnson to discuss this morning's commemoration and his department's role in our nation's security.
    EX-INMATES & HEALTH CARE - Ex-prisoners are an often forgotten population, but they represent one in three of those newly eligible for Medicaid under the Affordable Care Act.

    GREENWALD - Following the NewsHour's interview with former National Security Director Gen. Keith Alexander earlier this week, Chief Foreign Correspondent Margaret Warner talks with Glen Greenwald about the N.S.A.'s expanded surveillance in the wake of 9/11, his early encounters with Edward Snowden and his new book, "No Place to Hide: Edward Snowden, the NSA, and the US Surveillance State."
    NET NEUTRALITY - The FCC voted 3-2 today to move forward with a set of rules designed to guarantee an open internet, though still allowing for service providers to pay for a guaranteed "fast lane" of high-speed internet services.

    Local USA [#111] Urban Gardening Sowing the Seeds of Change... planting ideas for sustainability and self-sufficiency.

  • 5:00 am
    Nova [#4112H] Escape from Nazi Alcatraz Colditz Castle, a notorious prisoner of war camp in Nazi Germany, was supposed to be escape-proof. But in the dark days at the end of World War II, a group of British officers dreamt up the ultimate escape plan: in a secret attic workshop, they constructed a two-man glider out of bed sheets and floorboards. Their plan was to fly to freedom from the roof of the castle, but the war ended before they could put it to the test. Now a crack team of aerospace engineers and carpenters rebuild the glider in the same attic using the same materials, and they'll do something the prisoners never got a chance to try: use a bathtub full of concrete to catapult the glider off the roof of the castle. As the hair-raising launch 90 feet up draws near, the program explores the Colditz legend and exposes the secrets of other ingenious and audacious escapes. Then, after a 70-year wait, the team finally finds out if the legendary glider plan would have succeeded. duration 55:31   STEREO TVPG

    Nazi Mega Weapons [#106H] Fortress Berlin April 1945. Hitler is in the center of Berlin, 10 meters underground, surrounded by four-meter thick concrete walls, safe from any air attack the Allies can throw at him. But the Russians are advancing on the ground: the Red Army is lined up along the Oder River and going for the Fuhrer. Blocking the way are rings of ingenious defenses, kill zones and strong-points that have turned Berlin into a fortress. At the heart of this fortress is the Fuhrerbunker. duration 56:46   SRND51 TVPG
  • 7:00 am
    Secrets of the Dead [#1202] Bugging Hitler's Soldiers Spied upon by MI19 in a bugging operation of unprecedented scale and cunning, 4,000 German POW's revealed their inner thoughts about the Third Reich and let slip military secrets that helped the Allies win WWII. Based on groundbreaking research conducted by a team of leading German historians and scientists, the film will tell the story of how those confessions were stolen, how they changed the outcome of the war and how they can now reveal, in more shocking detail than ever before, the hearts and minds of the German fighter. The evidence that supports this extraordinary new chapter in the history of WWII will be told through powerful dramatic reconstructions. Acted by German actors, speaking both German and English, they will quote directly from the highlights of over 100,000 hours of secretly recorded and therefore unguarded conversations between German POWs held in Britain. These long lost voices of the past are being brought back to life, bringing with them unique and exclusive insights into What the Nazis Really Thought. duration 56:46   STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: none)

    • 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 […]
