  • 7:00 am
    Coming of Age In Aging America It's widely accepted that most Americans are living decades longer than any generation in human history. This longevity has far-reaching implications for society, and experts, policy makers and the general population are only just beginning to grapple with how to reframe our thoughts on aging. What does it mean for communities, programs and policies, and how we live and work? COMING OF AGE IN AGING AMERICA is a penetrating documentary that probes these questions. It suggests that America's social and economic institutions will - and must - change to adapt to a staggering demographic transformation where more than half of the world's population will eventually be over the age of fifty. Over the course of an hour, the program examines the current social security system; looks at the data being collected on the aging brain and body at a Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) lab; explores a town re-designing itself for multi- generational use; and observes a large medical system remolding its work environment to both retain older workers and welcome younger ones. Through interviews with experts - including John W. Rowe, professor at Columbia University's Aging Center; Lisa F. Berkman, professor of public policy and director of the Harvard Center for Population and Development Studies; Laura L. Carstensen, professor and director of the Stanford University Center on Longevity; Joseph Coughlin, director of the MIT AgeLab; and urban planner Scott Ball - COMING OF AGE IN AGING AMERICA examines the exploding population shift, its impact on society, and the need to see the reach and magnitude of the changes an aging America will bring. duration 56:46   STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: none)

    Global Voices [#804] A Young Patriot Zhao Changtong is a teenage art student born in 1990 and known in the streets of Pingyao as "Mr. Patriotic Maniac." Despite his passion for the "new China," his family lives in poverty and with the constant tension of a shifting political landscape.

    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.
