  • 2:00 am
    Global Spirit [#205] The Search for God The search for God is perhaps the oldest of all spiritual quests. While the Abrahamic faiths place the concept of "God" as an entity separate from and above man, indigenous peoples tend to understand God or "Creator" as an integral, indivisible aspect of life, or nature. Some non-theistic faiths, such as Buddhism, focus not on a deity, but on a transcendent quality or attribute that the Buddha attained, such as compassion or enlightenment. This program brings together two teachers from different faiths that have devoted their lives and teachings to the concept of "God" or "ultimate reality". Dr. Jacob Needleman is an author and professor of Philosophy, who meets for the first time, Pir Zia Inayat-Khan, a scholar and teacher of Islam and Sufism in the lineage of his father, Pir Vilayat Khan and his grandfather, Hazrat Inayat Khan. duration 57:38   STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: none)

    POV [#3008H] Raising Bertie An intimate portrait of three African American boys as they face a precarious coming of age in rural Bertie County, North Carolina. Like many rural areas, Bertie County struggles with a dwindling economy, a declining population, and a high school graduation rate below the state average. This powerful verite film weaves the young men's narratives together as they work to define their identities and grow into adulthood while navigating complex relationships, institutional racism, violence, poverty, and educational inequity. duration 1:26:46   STEREO TVPG-L

  • 7:30 am
    Shakespeare Lost, Shakespeare Found This program tells the fascinating story behind the bold 20-year project by world-renowned Shakespeare scholar Dr. Gary Taylor to recreate The History of Cardenio (1613), a lost work written by William Shakespeare and his early collaborator, John Fletcher. Despite its impressive pedigree, The History of Cardenio remains shrouded in mystery because the 400-year-old play did not survive the ravages of time. Dr. Taylor resurrected the original manuscript by de-constructing Double Falsehood, Lewis Theobald's 1727 adaptation of The History of Cardenio. This process included painstaking research of centuries-old texts and cutting-edge computer microanalysis of each author's writing styles. The documentary culminates with the first full-scale production of the work at the Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis campus, where academics from around the world comment on the play's authenticity, casting choices, plot additions and controversial ending. duration 24:56   STEREO TVPG
