    American War Stories: Vietnam [#102] Turning Point Turning Point recounts the growth of American forces to over 500,000 troops by 1968, and how some Americans estimated the Communist enemy's days were numbered and the war would be over in months. Yet the shock of North Vietnam's massive Tet Offensive surprised and dismayed a public that was tiring of the weekly scene of flag draped caskets arriving at Dover, Delaware. Stories from Marines trapped in the deadly siege of Khe Sanh and of the terror of "walking point", when a soldier leads his squad into the jungle, highlight the danger and intensity of this phase of the war. Turning Point also explores the illogical set of rules of when, who, and how our troops could attack the enemy, a system that perplexed our men and women to no end. But the war also had its lighter moments when soldiers had a chance to kick back and relax. In this hour, veterans reminisce about going on R&R's - Rest and Relaxation breaks - in Hawaii, and how difficult it was to return. Soldiers also talk about nonsense games they created to beat the boredom. There were even rare moments of romance, and one soldier tells the story of how he fell hard for a South Vietnamese girl with whom he just celebrated their 42nd year of marriage! duration 56:47   STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: none)

    Walking Into The Unknown This Emmy-nominated documentary traces the intimate journey of an American Indian physician and national health columnist as he navigates the health care system and gains a deeper understanding of himself and his health risks. Dr. Arne Vainio works on the Fond du Lac (Ojibwe) Reservation in northern Minnesota, where his Native patients face grim health statistics. His impending 50th birthday - coupled with his frustration with middle-aged Native men who avoid health screenings - prompts a revelation: he needs to heed his own advice. At high risk for diabetes, heart disease, stroke and cancer, Vainio chooses to confront the health issues that jeopardize his future by undergoing medical screenings, making diet changes and adopting a lifestyle necessary to prevent a fatal outcome. This poignant story reveals Dr. Vainio's vulnerability as he reverses roles and finds himself a patient. The program also includes several powerful testimonials from community members who have experienced the premature loss of Native men in their families, along with explanations of several diagnostic tests told from the patient's point of view. duration 56:44   STEREO TVG

    Mystic Voices: The Story of the Pequot War [#101] The Pequot War was a pivotal event in early American History that set the stage for the ultimate domination of all Native Americans by Europeans. Narrated by two-time Academy Award nominee Roy Scheider, this 2-part program presents a balanced view of events, underlying causes, consequences and legacy of the first declared war in American history. Although the conflict was small by today's standards, the rhetoric of the English Puritans made their victory over the "heathens" a significant event in the early history of the United States and crystallized the attitudes and myths that became the foundations of our nation. This program is not just a history lesson about a regional tribe, but presents insights into how the voices of our ancestors play a part in who we are today as Americans. duration 58:49   STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: DVI)

    America Reframed [#417] The Last Season Amid the bustling world of central Oregon's wild mushroom hunting camps, the lives of two former soldiers intersect. Roger, a 75 year-old sniper with the us special forces in Vietnam, and Kouy, a 46 year-old platoon leader of Cambodia's Khmer freedom fighters who battled the khmer Rouge, come together each fall to hunt the elusive matsutake mushroom, a rare mushroom prized in Japanese culture and cuisine. However, the pair discover more than just mushrooms in the woods: they find a new life, and livelihood; and, a means to slowly heal the scarring wounds of war. Told over the course of one Matsutake mushroom season, the Last Season is a journey into the woods, into the memory of war and survival, telling a story of family from an unexpected place. duration 1:26:46   STEREO (Secondary audio: none)

    Lest We Forget - A Survivor's Story Traces the life of World War II veteran Gustav Potthoff, from his birth in Indonesia to his imprisonment in the Japanese slave labor camp responsible for building the infamous bridge over the River Kwai. Potthoff survived the brutal heat, lack of food and vicious captors but remained haunted by his nightmarish four-year captivity in Thailand. Decades later, he began painting visceral yet spiritual scenes of POW camp life - the guards, beatings, jungle, escape attempts and those left behind. During the film, Potthoff, his family and friends, museum curators and an art collector each convey the historical and cultural value of Potthoff's work. duration 26:46   STEREO TVRE (Secondary audio: none)
