    Liberty Or Death Patrick Henry's impassioned plea at the second Virginia Convention of 1775, "Give me liberty or give me death," defined the American Revolution. This docu-drama captures this seminal moment in American history by balancing experts' commentary on the events preceding the second Virginia Convention with dramatic re-enactments of the historic moments that followed. Actors portraying founding fathers George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Patrick Henry and other delegates bring the convention to life as another character, convention clerk John Tazwell, narrates the unfolding action. Historians also explain the lasting significance of the convention and Henry's stirring speech. duration 56:46   STEREO TVG
  • MORNING
  • 6:00 am
    Thomas Paine's To Begin the World Over Again All the triumphs and tragedies of Thomas Paine's life are here in this film of the acclaimed one-man play To Begin the World Over Again: the Life of Thomas Paine, shot in front of a live audience at the Lillian Theatre, Hollywood. Thomas Paine, a man largely forgotten and greatly misunderstood, is ironically quoted by all and every political faction in America today. Yet his ideas about democracy, equality, slavery, pensions, healthcare, education and morality would have created a very different kind of nation if they had been acted on. He was a man who changed the world, only to have the world he changed turn its back on him. The man who ignited revolutions would die largely ignored and distained, yet he was at the epicenter of world events when he wrote his books, literally transforming nations through the power of his words. Thomas Paine was one of the world's most provocative writers and worst politicians, a very nearly deadly combination. He lived by the creed that "one must always speak the truth as one sees it, no matter the consequences" and what an extraordinary life it was. It is time to hear and discuss and debate Thomas Paine again, since, as he said, "we have it in our power to begin the world over again". duration 59:00   STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: none)

In the aftermath of the deadly typhoon, an international behavioral health trauma team touches down to help those facing grief and post-traumatic stress. Journey through the eyes of Nona, a single mother of five, as she shares her story of survival; and Joward, a local pastor determined to help the people in his community. duration 29:00   STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: none)
