    Facing Fear In this Academy Award-nominated short documentary, worlds collide when a former neo-Nazi skinhead and the gay victim of his hate crime attack meet by chance 25 years after the incident that dramatically shaped both of their lives. Together, they embark on a journey of forgiveness that challenges both to grapple with their beliefs and fears, eventually leading to an improbable collaboration - and friendship. duration 29:00   STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: none)

    Operation Maneater [#102] Polar Bear Mark Evans travels to the shores of Canada's Hudson Bay where polar bears are causing havoc in isolated communities. He arrives in the town of Churchill hours after an attack has left two people with serious injuries and a bear dead. Mark joins the Polar Bear Alert team as they transport a captured bear by helicopter to a release site outside town. And in the Inuit town of Arviat, Mark works with wildlife officers to test an aerial drone early warning system, a military grade ultra-loud speaker to deter bears and a controversial experiment to place meat out on the tundra to divert bears away from town. duration 56:46   STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: none)

    Washington Week [#5652] After weeks of behind-the-scenes discussions, Senate Republicans unveiled their plan to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act. The Better Care Reconciliation Act authored largely by Majority Leader Mitch McConnell rolls back many requirements included under President Obama's signature healthcare plan
    The Senate plan would:
    - Phase out the Medicaid expansion to low-income Americans
    - Provide smaller subsidies for insurance plans that offer less coverage
    - Repeal the individual mandate requiring Americans to buy insurance
    - Allow states to opt out of requiring certain essential health benefits like maternity care and mental health treatment
    In addition to Democrats, who are in lock-step opposition to the GOP Senate health care bill, four conservative Republican senators have rejected the plan calling it "Obamacare light." Sens. Rand Paul (KY), Ron Johnson (WI), Ted Cruz (TX) and Mike Lee (UT) released a joint statement saying they're "not ready to vote for this bill."
    The Senate plan is similar to the American Health Care Act passed by the House last month. President Trump touted its passage in a Rose Garden ceremony but recently has called it "mean" and "cold-hearted." He has not yet indicated his opinion of the Senate plan.
    All of the debate is racing towards a vote next week before the July 4th Congressional recess. McConnell's schedule leaves little time for public debate or amendments. The Congressional Budget Office will release its score of the bill next week.
    Robert Costa will explore the details of the Republican prescription for health care and the real-world impact with:
    Sarah Kliff of Vox, Susan Davis of NPR, Philip Rucker of The Washington Post, and Kelly O'Donnell of NBC News.

    Harvesting The High Plains In 1933, as the United States began to recover from the Great Depression, farmers from the panhandle of Texas to western Nebraska faced a greater, and much less forgiving foe - nature. The Dustbowl turned the Great Plains, America's breadbasket, into a a virtual desert. This documentary tells the rags-to-riches story of Ray Garvey and John Kriss, who made large-scale wheat farming a success under these adverse conditions. This compelling documentary recounts the men's decisions, failures and triumphs as it traces the rise of agriculture in the Midwest and on the Great Plains. Like farmers today, Garvey and Kriss faced numerous challenges, including inclement weather, mid-season policy changes, increasing tax rates and war-time rationing, all while trying to feed the country and the world. The film draws from Craig Miner's book of the same name, extensive correspondence between Kriss and Garvey (written over a period of 14 years), and interviews with family members and former employees, farmers, contractors and associates. duration 57:07   SRND51 TVG

    Big Pacific [#101H] Mysterious Over five cinematic episodes, "Big Pacific" breaks the boundaries between land and sea, moving throughout the Pacific Ocean to present a broad range of locations, species, natural phenomena and behaviors. It presents the ocean and its denizens in ways never before seen on TV, exploring the monstrous to the minute; the alien to the intimate. Man has explored land, the ocean's surface and large parts of the solar system, and in the 21st century we are just beginning to explore the depths of the Pacific Ocean. We yearn to unravel the mysterious Pacific, but she does not give up her secrets willingly. Surrounded by the Ring of Fire, the Pacific Ocean is the epicenter of natural mayhem. In the violent Pacific creatures must choose whether to avoid conflict or rise to meet it.
    There is plenty of food in the Pacific Ocean, but it is the challenge of finding that food that drives all life in the Pacific. In the voracious Pacific every mouthful counts. In the passionate Pacific, the quest to multiply has spawned a stunning array of unusual behaviors and adaptations. There are forest penguins with a tenuous marriage, the secret rendezvous of great white sharks, and the tale of male pregnancy.

    The Committee This program chronicles the actions of the little-known Florida Legislative Investigation Committee (also known as the Johns Committee) that existed between 1956-1965.
    The committee was formed in 1956 in response to the Brown vs. Board of Education Supreme Court decision and amidst wide-spread anti-Communist fears in the country. Its initial targets were civil rights activists and members of the NAACP who were pushing for desegregation in Florida. In 1961, Florida Senator and Committee Chairman Charley Johns shifted the focus from civil rights activists to Communist sympathizers and homosexual teachers and students at state universities. During its existence, the Committee was successful in firing or expelling more than 200 suspected gay and lesbian students and teachers throughout Florida.
    Through archival footage and photos, and interviews with former students Rev. Ruth Jensen-Forbell and Chuck Woods, and retired police officer John Tileston, Jr., the documentary highlights the scare tactics used by the Johns Committee in its attempt to root out homosexuality and Communism on state campuses. Chuck Woods - who had been interrogated by John Tileston, Jr. as a student at the time - reunites with him publicly for the first time in 50 years to discuss what happened during that dark period in the state's history.
