    In My Lifetime This program thoughtfully and thoroughly examines the 68-year history of nuclear weapons - the most destructive force ever invented. Filmed in Europe, Japan and the US, it focuses on the continuing struggle of citizens, scientists and political leaders working to reduce or eliminate the atomic threat, while others search for ways to build nuclear weapons.
    In contemporary interviews, former heads of state, UN representatives, figures from the nuclear establishment, Manhattan Project scientists, Nobel Peace- and Pulitzer Prize-winners, military personnel and atomic-bomb survivors recount the birth of the nuclear age and detail the key developments that followed. The film shifts between historical events, including the Cuban missile crisis and the historic 1986 Reykjavik Summit between Reagan and Gorbachev to present-day efforts to contain the spread of nuclear weapons. It also details the obstacles - political and human- impeding a solution to this complex global issue.

    Religion & Ethics NewsWeekly [#1749] JORDAN'S SYRIAN REFUGEES - More than 9 million Syrians have fled their country in what the UN has called the "greatest humanitarian catastrophe of modern times." Faith-based groups - Catholic, Jewish, Muslim, Orthodox, Mennonite, and more - in Jordan, home now to 2 large Syrian refugee camps, are doing what they can to help. "Behind each of these wonderful people is a life that is completely disrupted. We see God in all of these people. We see that these are brothers and sisters like us," says Catholic Relief Services president Carolyn Woo. (Originally broadcast January 24, 2014.)
    THE DECEMBER PROJECT - Sara Davidson is a best-selling writer and journalist who confesses she felt completely unprepared to face the reality of her own mortality. In 2009, she met Jewish Renewal founder Rabbi Zalman Schachter-Shalomi. They spent every Friday together for 2 years discussing what the spiritual teacher believed helps one prepare for death. The rabbi died this summer on July 3 at the age of 89. Their conversations culminated in Davidson's book The December Project, named for what Reb Zalman referred to as the December of life. "When you feel you're coming to the end of your tour of duty, what is the spiritual work of that time," he asked, "and how do we prepare for the mystery?" (Originally broadcast May 2, 2014.)

    My Wild Affair [#104] The Seal Who Came Home Andre, "the seal who came home," is the true story of a two-day old wild harbor seal who, in 1961, was rescued from certain death by Harry Goodridge, an arborist from Rockport, Maine. Over the next 25 years, Andre and Harry established a friendship that brought Andre into the world of humans without Andre ever having to give up his wildness. The human world gave Andre shelter during the harsh New England winter. But staying wild at heart meant Andre had the know-how to be able to make the 200 mile swim home to Rockport. This interspecies friendship weathered every kind of challenge including at the end, Andre's blindness. duration 56:46   STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: none)

    Nature [#3109] Touching The Wild Joe Hutto's idea of research is anything but normal, dedicating seven years of his life to becoming a wild mule deer. The herd would ordinarily run from any human but, incredibly, these keenly intelligent animals come to regard this stranger as one of their own. Accepted by the matriarch, he walks among them, is even groomed by them, and can lie with a pregnant doe talking to its unborn fawns. As he crosses the species divide, Joe is tapping into a new understanding about these elusive animals, literally entering a deer society. The captivating joy he feels for his new family is nothing short of infectious, but this human predator also learns to see the world from the point of view of prey -- and it's an experience that will ultimately rock him to his very core; sharing their world so personally finally takes a toll that sends him back to his own kind. duration 56:46   STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: none)
  • 7:00 am
    Global Voices [#711] Diamond in the Dunes This film is the true story of hope and baseball in China's Xinjiang Province - a region harshly divided between an indigenous Muslim minority and the ruling Han Chinese. It follows Parhat Ablat, a 20-year-old Uyghur shepherd, as he attends the region's racially segregated Xinjiang University and forms an integrated baseball team.
    Parhat is on a fraught quest to raise his people out of what he calls their "spirit sickness." While at the helm of Xinjiang University's first mixed-race team, he also starts a baseball program at a minority elementary school. For Parhat, baseball is more than a game; it's a vehicle for spiritual transformation. Finally, after a year of practice in the shadow of tense ethnic relations, Parhat and the university team travel 2000 miles for their only game of the season - against a team of Tibetans on the Qinghai Plateau.

    PBS NewsHour [#11030] IRAQ - After months of political deadlock in Iraq, president Fouad Massoum has nominated deputy parliament speaker Haider al-Abadi to become the country's new prime minister. Gwen Ifill debriefs with Brett McGurk, the deputy assistant secretary for Iraq and Iran in the Bureau of Near Eastern Affairs at the US Department of State. She is then joined by former US ambassador to Iraq, Zalmay Khalilzad, and senior director for the Middle East and North Africa at the National Endowment for Democracy, Laith Kubba.
    SOMALIA - Judy Woodruff sits down with Somali president Hassan Sheikh Mohamud to discuss his efforts to end decades of violence, chaos and poverty in his country, and to combat the al-Qaeda linked, al-Shabaab militant group.
    ST. LOUIS SHOOTING - The killing of an unarmed black teenager by a police officer in Ferguson, Missouri has triggered riots, looting and chaos in the St. Louis suburb. Jeffrey Brown examines the shooting and its aftermath with Sherrilyn Ifill, Gwen Ifill's cousin and the president of the NAACP's legal defense fund, and Greg Meyer, a former LAPD captain who has written on and testified in multiple "use-of-force" cases around the nation.
    NEWSPAPERS - More and more media giants are shedding print altogether in favor of broadcast and web content. Gannett, the company that owns USA Today among other publications, is the latest to spin-off its print operations. It follows closely on the heels of the Tribune Company and others. Ken Doctor, who covers the transformation of media for his website newsonomics.com, and in his column for the Nieman Journalism Lab analyzes this trend.

      We are aware of the break-up issues for our DT25 Over the Air signal in the Monterey/Salinas area. This will also affect viewers of any cable or satellite signal provider using that transmitter as their source. Engineers are working on the problem.
