    Washington Week [#5702] As intelligence agencies and Congress continue to investigate the scope of Russia's efforts to meddle in the presidential election, a newly revealed meeting among President Trump's son, son-in-law, a top adviser and a "Russian government attorney" in June 2016 is raising new questions about potential collusion. Emails released by Donald Trump Jr. on Tuesday detail the meeting that was set up to provide "information that would incriminate Hillary [Clinton] and her dealings with Russia" as "part of Russia and its government's support for Mr. Trump."
    The president has defended his son's decision to meet with the attorney as standard opposition research, but the younger Mr. Trump is facing criticism from lawmakers in both parties who believe law enforcement should have been consulted. The Senate Judiciary Committee is asking Trump Jr. to testify next week as the cloud of questions about Russia continues to follow the Trump administration.
    *Plus, Senate Republicans released not one but two new plans to replace the Affordable Care Act. Does the GOP have the votes to pass either measure?
    *Robert Costa will discuss new details of the Russia investigation and how it is impacting the rest of the legislative agenda in Washington with:
    Mark Mazzetti of The New York Times
    Ashley Parker of The Washington Post

    Global Voices [#806] Whose Country? A young Egyptian filmmaker narrates this highly personal account of his interaction with a group of Cairo policemen over a period of 3 years - from right after the outbreak of the Egyptian revolution (in 2011) until the removal of ex-President Morsi by the military (in 2013). As he forms a close relationship with one Cairo cop in particular, the filmmaker recognizes he is entering into something that once was, for him, a previously forbidden circle: He is the son of a criminal investigator, but one whose father never confided in him about his difficult line of work.As the filmmaker gradually gains the policemen's trust, they begin to share with him their stories and first-hand accounts of corruption and abuse. They also express their hopes and fears about the direction the country is headed as the political landscape in the country undergoes turbulent change. Narrated in English by the filmmaker, Whose Country? reveals not only why police injustice was a widely reported cause of the 2011 Revolution but also how the perpetuation of injustice within the security forces itself led to widespread dissatisfaction amongst the lower ranks too. With the policemen blaming "the system" for making them behave they way they do, the filmmaker is forced to confront these Cairo cops - and himself - with questions of morality and guilt. duration 57:12   STEREO (Secondary audio: none)

    An American Mosque This documentary follows a group of Muslim farmers in Yuba City, California, as they struggle to build their local mosque only to see it destroyed by arson. In the wake of the fire, questions abound: Who committed the crime? Is the arson an act of hate? How will the community respond and rebuild?
    Despite their loss, the film's central characters are unrelenting in their conviction that all Americans are entitled to a religious sanctuary and the right to practice their faith openly. Witness how they regroup and peacefully respond to this devastating crime, while members of other faiths show their support. As mosque projects come under attack and hate-crimes against Muslims rise across the country, this program offers a cautionary tale showing the human consequence of this intolerance.

    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)

    America Reframed [#509] Oxyana Tucked in the Appalachian mountains of Southern West Virginia, Oceana, is a small, once thriving coal-mining town that has fallen victim to the fast spreading scourge of prescription painkiller Oxycontin. As the coal industry slowly declined and times got tough, a black market for the drug sprung up and along with it a rash of prostitution, theft and murder. Soon its own residents had nicknamed the town Oxyana and it began to live up to its reputation as abuse, addiction and overdoses became commonplace. Oxyana is a harrowing front line account of a community in the grips of an epidemic, told through the voices of the addicts, the dealers and all those affected. It is a haunting glimpse into an American nightmare unfolding before our eyes, a cautionary tale told with raw and unflinching honesty. duration 1:26:46   STEREO TV14 (Secondary audio: none)
