    Ireland's Great Hunger and the Irish Diaspora Ireland's Great Hunger and the Irish Diaspora explores not just the potato failure that caused mass starvation, death, and emigration in Ireland from 1845 to 1852, but the historic and socio-political circumstances that made the Great Famine almost inevitable. The Emmy Award-winning documentary, narrated by actor Gabriel Byrne, includes insights from famine scholars and descendants of famine survivors as well as the stories of emigrants to Quebec and the "Earl Grey" orphan women who emigrated to Australia. duration 50:00   STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: none)

    Mark Twain's Journey to Jerusalem: Dreamland MARK TWAIN'S JOURNEY TO JERUSALEM: DREAMLAND retraces Mark Twain's footsteps as a cub reporter on a bold adventure sailing around the Mediterranean and throughout Europe in 1867, with Jerusalem and the Holy Land as his ultimate destination. Narrated by Martin Sheen, the documentary reveals Twain's deep rooted and complex relationship with religion. Having regularly attended church services as a child with his devoutly Christian mother, and thoroughly educated on Christianity and the Bible, his childhood imaginings of the Holy Land are confronted with a vastly different reality; the monuments, cities, and landscapes aren't as grand as the Scriptures led him to believe. He also finds himself disillusioned by the poverty and squalor he witnesses beneath the "splendor" of European culture. The film chronicles Mark Twain's exploits on his landmark journey and establishes Twain as the voice of America - funny, sarcastic, and powerfully opinionated. duration 56:46   STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: none)

    Washington Week [#5716H] A bipartisan proposal drafted by Sens. Lamar Alexander, R-Tenn., and Patty Murray, D-Wash., would restore health insurance subsidies and provide short-term fixes to the insurance marketplaces. The approximately $9 billion per year would help pay the out-of-pocket costs for millions of low-income Americans covered by the Affordable Care Act exchanges. President Trump's support for the bill has wavered throughout the week as the White House and many Republicans in Congress remain committed to repealing and replacing Obamacare.
    *Jeff Zeleny of CNN, Yamiche Alcindor of The New York Times and Molly Ball of The Atlantic will discuss the ongoing efforts to stabilize health care exchanges and the impact on budget and tax negotiations.
    *Two weeks after an ISIS ambush in Niger killed four U.S. soldiers, the details remain murky about what caused the deadliest combat mission of Trump's presidency. The conflicting accounts of President Trump's condolence call with the widow of one of the soldiers has erupted into a war of words between the White House and a Democratic congresswoman. Many politicians and military officials are worried about the politicization of the deaths of U.S. service members and the grief of Gold Star families in the wake of the controversy.
    *Nancy Youssef of The Wall Street Journal will report on the deadly attack in West Africa and wider concerns about how families of fallen soldiers are comforted.

    Streets of Wynwood Once a year, when the Art Basel fair comes to Miami, street artists from across the globe converge on the city's Wynwood neighborhood to create and compete. Each December, the walls of this former warehouse district are spectacularly transformed as new works by the world's best taggers, graffiti writers and muralists are painted over prior exhibits. STREETS OF WYNWOOD takes viewers inside this fascinating yet little-known global subculture that spans the artistic gamut from "tagging" and graffiti to towering murals of astonishing quality. Some works might endure for years, while others vanish or are defaced within days of completion. Filmed during recent Art Basel Miami festivals, the documentary is both an immersive journey into an eye-popping street art jamboree, unparalleled in any other city, and a thoughtful exploration of a burgeoning artistic movement where internationally renowned artists such as America's Shepard Fairey, Brazil's Eduardo Kobra, South Africa's Faith 47th and the mysterious Londoner known as Banksy are highly sought after by art collectors, galleries and museums. duration 56:46   STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: none)
