    American Umpire This thought-provoking documentary about US foreign policy chronicles how the United States became the world's policeman and questions how long the US must continue to play this role. Narrated by Jim Lehrer and written by award-winning historian Elizabeth Cobbs, the film explores the history of American military intervention and the future of America's military commitment abroad.
    After detailing the principles that guided US foreign policy for 150 years and the sea change that followed WWII, the latter half of the documentary examines America's contemporary role on the international stage. The film concludes by asking whether it's time to rethink our current policies, scale down military spending, and bring our allies back into the game as fellow umpires.
    The program combines archival footage with candid interviews from former secretaries of state George Shultz, Madeleine Albright and Condoleeza Rice; General Jim Mattis and Lt. General Karl Eikenberry, former US Ambassador to Afghanistan; Nobel Prize winner Michael Spence; Pulitzer Prize winner David Kennedy; and eight scholars from around the world.

    Washington Week [#5650] Former FBI director James Comey accused President Trump of telling "lies, plain and simple" during remarkable testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee. Comey detailed conversations he had with Mr. Trump and the circumstances surrounding his dismissal last month.
    Comey's testimony, in which he refused to characterize the pressure he felt from Trump as obstruction of justice, is already raising more questions in the ongoing probes into Russia's attempts to meddle in the 2016 presidential election.
    Republicans left the hearing with new ammunition, too. Among the revelations:
    * Comey helped reveal memos detailing his meetings with the president because he hoped it would prompt the appointment of a special counsel. * Former Attorney General Loretta Lynch told Comey to refer to the ongoing probe of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's emails as a "matter" rather than an "investigation."
    The president's personal attorney called Comey's testimony proof that Trump did not try to impede the investigation into the FBI investigation into Russian election meddling. He went on to accuse the former FBI director of leaking unauthorized information to try and damage the president.
    Robert Costa will discuss how the White House and Capitol Hill are responding to Comey's testimony and the impact on special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation with: Dan Balz of The Washington Post, Julie Hirschfeld Davis of The New York Times, Kimberly Atkins of the Boston Herald, and Pete Williams of NBC News.

    America Reframed [#222] Broken Heart Land On an early autumn afternoon, in his parent's ranch in Norman, Oklahoma, gay teen Zack Harrington killed himself with a gunshot to the head. One week earlier, Zack attended a local city council meeting in support of a proposal for LGBTQ History Month in his bible-belt town. When the floor was opened up for public comment, some community members made highly controversial statements equating being gay with the spread of diseases such as HIV and AIDS. Against the backdrop of a town bitterly divided on the issue of homosexuality, Zack's grief-stricken parents, both conservative Republicans and military veterans, are forced to reconcile their own social and political beliefs with their son's death. Determined to understand Zack, they discover a private diary, which paints a gripping portrait of a boy in crisis. Ultimately, they discover a chilling secret that Zack kept hidden for almost two years, which leads them to some painful conclusions about their son's life and death. When an outspoken conservative citizen runs for City Council, the Harringtons decide to join a politically active group called "MOMS: Mothers of Many" (mainly comprised of local mothers of LGBTQ youth). Over the course of the local election season, we witness Zack's family, once private and politically conservative, come out of their own closet, moving from private denial to a climactic and very public acceptance of their son's legacy. duration 1:56:46   STEREO (Secondary audio: none)

    1962 World's Fair: When Seattle Invented The Future The 1962 World's Fair, a 6-month celebration of science and technology, featured an exciting mix of culture, cuisine and celebrity, drawing more than 10 million visitors from around the world to the then relatively unknown mill town of Seattle. Through historical photographs and archival footage, this program brings to life the textures and sounds of Seattle in the late 1950s and early '60s.
    The city's business, civic and cultural leaders, historians and longtime residents reminisce about the excitement and ambition the Fair ignited. Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen credits seeing the 605-foot Space Needle, Monorail, "Bubbleator" and other exhibits for inspiring his love of technology and science. Public television's own Rick Steves shares his vivid memory of seeing "exotic" Belgian Waffles for the first time at The Food Circus. The Fair also offered an eclectic mix of high art and low culture, from opera concerts and paintings by Roy Lichtenstein and Jasper Johns, to Gracie Hanson's racy Vegas-style nightclub revue and an adult puppet show. The documentary includes rare footage captured at the fair, including appearances by Space Age hero John Glenn; politicians Adlai Stevenson, Richard Nixon, Lyndon Johnson, Robert Kennedy and Hubert H. Humphrey; journalist Edward R. Murrow; the Duke of Edinburgh; and beloved performers Roy Rogers and Dale Evans, Peggy Lee, Lawrence Welk, the Lennon Sisters, Bob Hope, Miles Davis and Elvis.

An immigration policy called DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) has allowed them to live and work in the U.S. for a two-year period. But without long-term protections, Rachel, Alexis and Pratishtha have a much graver question to ponder: "Will I be able to stay in this country?" Determined to clarify their futures despite their murky status, they set out in the series' green RV, for an unforgettable journey where they explore the country, have an adventure like no other, and ask people who've been in their shoes the questions they've always wondered. duration 56:46   STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: none)
