    Serving America: Memories of Peace Corps This program highlights the experiences of some of the nearly 3000 volunteers who served during the early years of the Peace Corps. A mix of archival film and photographs, along with personal stories from former volunteers, tells a story of service and idealism. Interviews convey the volunteers' passion, commitment and bravery as they lived and worked in developing countries, including South and Central America, Africa and the Middle East. From almost fatal obstacles to spiritual epiphanies, these men and women describe their transformative experiences. Donna Shalala, former US Secretary of Health and Human Services (1993-2001), recounts the adventure of serving in Iran between 1962 and 1964. "What the Peace Corps really did is make me a citizen of the world," says Shalala. duration 26:44   STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: none)

    Religion & Ethics NewsWeekly [#1747] LATINO CONVERTS TO ISLAM - We visit the Islamic Center of Greater Miami to look at the rising number of Latino Muslims in the US - as many as 250,000, according to estimates. Some of the converts say that in Islam they have found theological simplicity and "no intermediaries with God." The Islamic Circle of North America reports that more than half of the US Latino converts are women. "I just felt that the minute I put my head down to the ground," says Nadia Echevrria, "I felt like I was really talking to God."
    RESPONDING TO THE MIGRANT CRISIS - How are religious groups trying to help children caught at the US border? "It's not like your typical disaster, where churches clean up after a hurricane or a tornado," says Kevin Eckstrom, editor-in-chief of Religion News Service. "This is much more complicated."

    Pioneers In Aviation: The Race to the Moon [#102] The War Years Documents the 1930s and 40s, as the clouds of war once again began to gather over Europe. With all of Western Europe a German stronghold by the summer of 1940, and England under attack, President Roosevelt calls upon the captains of his Aviation Industry-declaring that America must become "the Arsenal of Democracy. " Under Donald Douglas's leadership, and Dutch Kindelberger's guidance, the U.S. aviation industry unites to tackle the biggest production job in industrial history. With Boeing, Douglas, and North American Aviation factories working around the clock, they produce some of the most legendary aircraft in American history-giving the Allies air supremacy in both the European and Pacific theaters and, ultimately, victory in World War II. Highlights include:
    * Newly discovered footage of the Second World War's most storied military operation: the 1942 Doolittle/Tokyo Raid, flown by North American Aviation's B-25 "Mitchell bomber.
    * Newly discovered footage of Jimmy Doolittle's triumphant return to North American Aviation to share his victory with Dutch Kindelberger and the North American employees.
    * Newly recovered newsreel footage from the1940s, offering a rare glimpse inside the wartime factories at Boeing, Douglas, and North American Aviation.
    * A Lowell Thomas-narrated World War II newsreel of the legendary North American P-51 Mustang in the skies over Berlin.
