    Not Without Us Not Without Us follows seven grassroots activists from around the world to the 21st U.N. Climate Talks in Paris. The effects of climate change on their lives reveal what's at stake if a strong agreement to limit carbon emissions is not reached. Yet, the landmark Paris Accords, signed by 195 nations, is non-binding and fails to mention the main cause of global climate change: fossil fuels. Not Without Us connects the dots between the inability of the U.N. process to address climate change and Big Oil's control over governments, between the economic inequality and the oncoming climate disaster, and between a fossil fuel driven economy and the 1% who control it. Not Without Us demonstrates the importance of grassroots groups to empower mass movements to create systemic change. duration 59:00   STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: none)

    Washington Week [#5709] As Hurricane Harvey dissipates, the recovery effort in Texas is just beginning. The Category 4 storm dropped more than 50 inches of rain near Houston and killed dozens of people. Tens of thousands of people have been forced from their homes as the city begins to dry out.
    Early estimates put the cleanup costs as high as $200 billion. How is the federal government responding to what may be the costliest natural disaster in American history?
    President Trump was on the ground in Texas on Monday to pledge his support for the recovery, but a fight is looming on Capitol Hill to approve the spending. The Texas congressional delegation is facing pushback from their Northeastern colleagues who are still upset about opposition to Hurricane Sandy recovery spending five years ago. Mr. Trump's Republican allies in the House are also considering transferring nearly $1 billion from FEMA's disaster relief efforts to pay for the president's long-promised border wall.
    Robert Costa will discuss the long cleanup process and the government's response with:
    Abby Livingston of The Texas Tribune
    Philip Rucker of The Washington Post
    Geoff Bennett of NPR
    Jeanne Cummings of The Wall Street Journal

    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
