    Forgotten Ellis Island "Forgotten Ellis Island" is the first film to be produced about the abandoned immigrant hospital on Ellis Island. During the great wave of immigration, twenty-two medical buildings sprawled across two islands adjacent to Ellis Island, the largest port of entry in the United States. Massive and modern, the hospital was America's first line of defense against contagious, often virulent disease. In the era before anti-biotics, tens of thousands of immigrant patients were separated from family, detained in the hospital, and healed from illness before becoming citizens. 350 babies were born in the hospital, 3,500 immigrants died there. For two years, the National Park Service gave producer, Lorie Conway, exclusive access to film the Ellis Island hospital buildings (before restoration efforts began) , as well as to interview former patients at the location. Original research was conducted over five years. Many never-before-published photographs are featured in the film as well as excerpts from oral histories with medical staff, ward matrons, and patients. As America wrestles once again with the issue of immigration, "Forgotten Ellis Island" provides a unique lens on this contentious debate. It is a powerful tribute to the best and worst of America's dealings with its new citizens-to-be. duration 56:46   STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: none)

    Washington Week [#5701] President Trump is meeting with world leaders for the second time since taking office in January. The G20 meeting in Germany will provide a clearer picture of how the Trump administration is shifting U.S. foreign policy and how other nations view America's role as a global leader.
    *Mr. Trump is set to meet face-to-face with Russian President Vladimir Putin for the first time since taking office in January. The meeting comes just a day after the president publicly questioned American intelligence reports saying Russia was behind attempts to meddle in the U.S. presidential election.
    *The United States is also deciding how to respond to North Korea test firing an intercontinental ballistic missile capable of reaching Alaska. Trump said he is considering "severe" consequences. UN Ambassador Nikki Haley told the Security Council, "The US is prepared to use the full range of our capabilities to defend ourselves and our allies."
    * Trump will also meet with one of Europe's most influential leaders who is one of his most frequent critics, German Chancellor Angela Merkel.
    *What is President Trump's vision of American leadership and how is his nationalist message playing to a global audience?
    Robert Costa will get answers and analysis from:

    Your Health: A Sacred Matter This 2-part program explores how religion, spirituality and health care interrelate. The program weaves together compelling individual stories from doctors, patients, nurses, chaplains and caregivers who speak to the benefits of incorporating a patient's spirituality as part of a whole-patient/whole-person model of care. It examines how the medical profession is not only looking to the origins of medicine in order to move forward, by re-integrating religiously based tenets into the healing process, but also responding to contemporary research findings that support earlier accepted wisdom.
    The film's interviewees provide a representative sampling of the leading medical schools, teaching hospitals and research centers across the nation recognized for their work in this field. The film also follows a variety of people in the field who are learning to integrate the whole-person model of care. In 2016, it won the International Award of Excellence in the category of "Documentary Feature" at the International Film Festival for Spirituality - Religion - Visionary in Jakarta, Indonesia.

    Passing On Deceased. Departed. Passed away. No matter how you say it, it happens to all of us. More than 2.5 million people will die in the United States this year. One big difference between the quality of those deaths is where they occur. At home surrounded by family and loved ones, or in the Intensive Care Unit hooked up to pulsing machines with blinking lights. The difference usually comes down to whether you passed on your dying wishes before passing on? Death is as much a part of human existence as is life, yet it remains a mysterious, often taboo subject. This documentary explores end-of-life through a series of compelling and sensitive stories that will engage you emotionally and provide you with valuable information. duration 56:46   STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: none)

    Global Voices [#805] The Daughters of the Forest Set in one of only 250 UNESCO Biosphere Reserves on earth, Paraguay's Mbaracayu Forest Girls' School is surrounded by a region of South America in which more than 95 percent of the forest has been burned and cleared, with the land now farmed by multinational agribusinesses. Meanwhile, more than 80 percent of the people in the region live in extreme poverty, and nearly 90 percent of the teenage girls become pregnant by the age of 16 and then drop out of school. Amid this landscape of despair, the Mbaracayu Forest Girls' School is a beacon of hope, a place where 150 girls are becoming some of the most financially literate young people in South America - not just because they learn economics along with all of the other traditional subjects, but because they are putting what they learn into practice. The girls run numerous successful businesses - from a hotel for eco-tourists to a stevia farm that produces natural sweetener sold in the United States and a tree nursery that sells millions of seedlings a year to a national reforestation program - businesses that not only help fund the school, but fund scholarships for the girls to start their own businesses when they graduate. duration 56:58   STEREO (Secondary audio: none)

    America Reframed [#405] Revolution '67 This program is an illuminating account of events too often relegated to footnotes in U.S. history -- the black urban rebellions of the 1960s. Focusing on the six-day Newark, New Jersey, outbreak in mid-July, "Revolution '67" reveals how the disturbance began as spontaneous revolts against poverty and police brutality and ended as fateful milestones in America's struggles over race and economic justice. Voices from across the spectrum -- activist Tom Hayden, journalist Bob Herbert, Mayor Sharpe James and other officials, National Guardsmen and Newark citizens - recall lessons as hard-earned then as they have been easy to neglect since. duration 1:26:46   STEREO (Secondary audio: none)

    Serving America: Memories of Peace Corps This program highlights the experiences of some of the nearly 3000 volunteers who served during the early years of the Peace Corps. A mix of archival film and photographs, along with personal stories from former volunteers, tells a story of service and idealism. Interviews convey the volunteers' passion, commitment and bravery as they lived and worked in developing countries, including South and Central America, Africa and the Middle East. From almost fatal obstacles to spiritual epiphanies, these men and women describe their transformative experiences. Donna Shalala, former US Secretary of Health and Human Services (1993-2001), recounts the adventure of serving in Iran between 1962 and 1964. "What the Peace Corps really did is make me a citizen of the world," says Shalala. duration 26:44   STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: none)
