    Last Harvest: The Yemenis of the San Joaquin This program explores the lives and times of Muslim immigrants from Yemen who settled in California's San Joaquin Valley. Yemeni migrant workers started coming to the US in the post-1965 era when the new immigration law opened the gates to non-Europeans. While most settled in the Detroit area, a small band of villagers from the mountainous Ibb region found work in the San Joaquin Valley where they tended the vineyards that produce a yearly bounty of internationally renowned table grapes. At the peak of the sojourn migration, some 5000 Yemenis were employed in the fields. Today only several hundred remain. This is their story. duration 22:28   STEREO TVG

    Passions and Politics of Ed Edelman: An Untold Story of Leadership Narrated by Tom Brokaw, this is the inspirational story of the life and career of Edmund D. Edelman, a political visionary whose courage and humanity transformed the fabric of life in Southern California. Hailed as a leader who bridged political divides and transcended ideological differences, Edelman provides a hopeful alternative to the current politics of polarization and stalemate. Through rich archival footage and interviews with luminaries such as Michael Dukakis, Frank Gehry, Peter Sellars and historian, Kevin Starr, the film provides a unique lens for viewing the political and community life of one of America's great cities - Los Angeles - from the sixties to the present day. The film is produced by Ed's wife, Mari Edelman. duration 58:15   STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: none)

    Religion & Ethics NewsWeekly [#1748] DRUGS OF LAST RESORT - Jamie and Jason Fowler are seeking access to experimental drugs that have not yet been approved by the FDA to treat their son Jack's life-threatening disease. The pharmaceutical company can make the treatment available to the family without FDA approval, but that could further delay the clinical trials required for official release. "How do we balance the rapid and accelerated approval of drugs that we can establish, definitively establish, are safe and effective," asks Dr. Russell Medford, who chairs the bioethics committee for the Biotechnology Industry Organization, "versus the immediate needs of individual patients who cannot wait for us to come to those final determinations?"
    THE AMANDA LINDHOUT STORY - In 2008, Canadian journalist Amanda Lindhout was kidnapped by a group of Somali teenagers and held captive for over 460 days. She was tortured, starved, and abused repeatedly before finally being released for a ransom. Lindhout says she did more than just survive the ordeal, she was transformed by it. "Physically I was in chains on the floor, and I had no power, no control over that, but I still had the power to choose my response to what was happening to me, to hold on to my own morals and my own values," Lindhout explains. "I knew somehow at the deepest part of my being that if I chose forgiveness, that experience just would not have the power to crush me." Lindhout is the author of a memoir about her ordeal, A House in the Sky, written with Sara Corbett.

    Pioneers In Aviation: The Race to the Moon [#103] The Race to the Moon Documents the era of the 1950s and 1960s, as post-war America finds itself locked in an ideological struggle with the Soviet Union-an adversary whose philosophy promised the destruction of capitalism. In 1957, the Soviet launch of Sputnik suddenly shifted the Cold War battlefield to space and heralded the decade-long Race to the Moon. As did his predecessors, President Kennedy turns to the captains of his Aviation Industry-now in the autumn of their years-with the century's greatest aerospace challenge. Highlights include:
    * Newly discovered footage documenting President Kennedy's 1963 visit to McDonnell Aircraft in St. Louis, in celebration of the Mercury Space Program.
    * Emotionally charged footage of Astronaut John Glenn's triumphant return to McDonnell Aircraft, after orbiting the Earth- to share his achievement with "Mr. Mac" and his employees.
    * Photographs of the unknown 19-year-old Marilyn Monroe, modeling the cabin features of the new Douglas DC-6.
    * Boeing Test Pilot Tex Johnston's legendary barrel-roll of the "Dash-8 0"-prototype of the Boeing 707-over Lake Washington during the 1955 Seattle Gold Cup Races.

    Global Voices [#710] El General Past and present collide as award-winning filmmaker Natalia Almada brings to life audio recordings she inherited about her great-grandfather Plutarco Elias Calles, a revolutionary general who became Mexico's president in 1924. In his time, Calles was called "El Bolshevique" and "El Jefe Maximo" (the foremost chief). Today, he is remembered as "el Quema-Curas" (priest-burner) and as a dictator who ruled through puppet presidents until he was exiled in 1936. Through Almada's grandmother's recordings, El General moves between memories of a daughter grappling with history's portrait of her father and the weight of his legacy on the country today. duration 1:21:58   STEREO (Secondary audio: none)

    American Masters [#2503] Margaret Mitchell: American Rebel No ordinary writer and no ordinary woman -- "Gone with the Wind" created two of the world's greatest lovers, Scarlett and Rhett, won a Pulitzer Prize in 1937 and has sold more than 30 million copies. Born into Atlanta's upper crust in 1900, Margaret Mitchell challenged stifling social restrictions at every turn. A charismatic force to be reckoned with, she had a great sense of humor, was one of Georgia's first newspaper women and was extremely generous with the money she made from "Gone with the Wind." She struggled with the changing role of women and the liberation of African Americans but also suffered from lifelong bouts of depression, until a tragic accident lead to her death in 1949. This film examines the amazing endurance of "Gone with the Wind" and reveals the seminal events of Mitchell's life through dramatic re-enactments based on her letters, as scenes from the movie weave together her life and her work. duration 56:46   STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: none)
