    Time Team America [#103] New Philadelphia, Illinois TIME TEAM AMERICA digs for the remains of the first American town founded by freed slaves. In 1836, "Free Frank" McWorter purchased his freedom from a Kentucky plantation owner and headed north. When he reached Illinois, he planted roots, started a town and sold enough property to buy the rest of his family out of slavery. A farmer's field now covers this dramatic testament to victory over enslavement. The local landowners and the McWorter family want to uncover what remains of New Philadelphia to memorialize its history and the history of their ancestors. TIME TEAM joins in the search for the remains of the schoolhouse where New Philadelphia's black children learned to read and write in freedom. duration 56:46   STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: none)
  • 3:00 am
    To The Contrary with Bonnie Erbe [#2634] The unconventional Manal Omar is this week's Women Thought Leader. Focusing on women's rights, humanitarian aid, and peace-building for more than 15 years, Omar continues her interfaith work and empowerment of women in Muslim communities. One focus - Muslim women and sexuality.
    FROM THIS WEEK'S SHOW: "What hasn't happened really is the conversation on sexuality, especially from a sex positive lens. We've had great organizations tackling domestic violence, tackling sexual abuse in the mosque. ..... but that sex positive conversation, which I argue is an essential part of Islam because Islam talks about how you connect with the divine through all your senses, is still a missing gap."
    BEYOND THE BATTLE: "I honor all those who are at the front lines fighting for women's rights.... But, it's time for us to unplug from the war machine and from the conflict machine and to really talk about the power of women from a place of joy and I know that's a hard sell in this day and age, but someone has to ring that bell."

    America Reframed [#508] Vegas Baby Some think an in-vitro fertilization contest sounds crazy, but countless Americans desperate to start a family believe this social media experiment is their only hope.

They place themselves in the hands of a Las Vegas doctor and his annual contest, which offers a prize of a free round of in-vitro fertilization with no guarantee of success.

    Doc World [#204] Kayak Man/Mumbai Disconnected Kayak Man - On January 11, 2007, Andrew McAuley set out to become the first sea-kayaker to cross the Tasman Sea. Leaving his wife and young son behind, he attempts to travel from Australia and New Zealand on one of the most wild, lonely and dangerous stretches of ocean. On February 9, New Zealand maritime authorities receive a distress call. Will Andrew McAuley's unshakable need to conquer the unknown ultimately cost him his life? Featuring interviews with McAuley's team during the expedition and video footage captured on board, Kayak Man is a psychological portrait of a man bent on adventure. Mumbao Disconnected - In Mumbai, it is estimated that thirteen people die on public transportation each day. Traffic has increased so rapidly that the entire city becomes gridlocked during rush hour. The solution? The construction of a massive suspension bridge to provide relief from the deadly traffic jams. Mumbai Disconnected follows three supporters and opponents of the project: a resident horrified by the overpasses, a father trying to get to work every day, and the vice president of the construction company that is building the bridge. duration 1:26:46   STEREO (Secondary audio: none)
