    Faith in the Big House This program explores the formulas used by Christian missionaries to convert inmates in America's prison. At a maximum security facility in Louisiana, a group of Christian evangelicals arrive to conduct a carefully-scripted religious retreat. Five felons, handpicked by the Warden, join other inmates in this "Encounter with Christ". Can these misfits, a gang-banger, a self-styled theologian, a narcissistic rock guitarist, a twitchy jock and a former football phenom find redemption? Or will the experience do little to change these men? Can religion keep these convicts from almost inevitably return to lock-up? Prison ministry leaders, including the late Charles Colson, (of Watergate infamy), insist revivals and bible studies radically reduce the number of inmates who are re-incarcerated. Those of the secular persuasion doubt their findings,favoring traditional rehabilitation and guaranteed results. Faith considers, who should be in charge of re-entry programs in the penitentiary such as job and addiction counseling? Will it be the new armies of faith- based volunteers? duration 59:00   STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: none)

    Sweet Dillard One of the most successful high school jazz bands in the country is in Broward County, South Florida, just steps away from highway I-95. SWEET DILLARD chronicles the 2013-2014 school year of the Dillard Center for the Arts Jazz Ensemble, and their inspirational bandleader, Christopher Dorsey. The no-nonsense Dorsey lays downs the law from the first beat, calling out his students' tendency to form into cliques of black and white, automatically inhabiting separate sides of the rehearsal room, something he won't tolerate. "You don't have to like each other, but you're gonna respect each other," Dorsey declares. SWEET DILLARD follows several of the jazz students and their families, including: Ulysses, a keyboardist who lost his father at a young age; Chris, who once stole cars and sold drugs before breaking away from his pill-addicted mother; and Kim, an intense perfectionist with Asperger's Syndrome, who manages to shed his inhibitions with the band. At the end of the year, they travel to New York City for the national championships, deter- mined to make their families and South Florida proud. duration 56:46   STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: none)

    Doc World [#205] The Departure After a youth full of drinking and night clubs, Ittetsu Nemoto was in a near fatal motorcycle accident. Hospitalized for three months, he realized how precious life was and became a Zen Buddhist monk. Now, in a temple nestled between rice fields and forested hills in rural Japan, his life's work is to save people from committing suicide. "What makes life worth living?" he asks. This question fuels his unconventional approach to suicide prevention. Retreats, pilgrimages, meditation, and collaborative art projects help patients realize what they'd be leaving behind. While Nemoto helps others rediscover their will to live, he must also practice what he preaches. His work begins to take a toll on his family and health, and Nemoto must learn to draw the line between his patients and his own life. duration 1:26:46   STEREO (Secondary audio: none)

    Our American Family: The Mays The first half of the 1900's represents the last era of American life that, for most families, began largely unchanged from the generations that came before. Courage brought 17-year-old Jacob May to the US from Germany in 1879 in search of a better life. That same courage enabled his family to rescue 200 Jews from Nazi Germany. Moving from poverty to prosperity, the May Hosiery Mill grew through three generations to contribute commerce and compassion within the Nashville community and beyond. Deeply committed to one another, bolstered by good humor, theirs is a story of fearless hope and courage. duration 29:00   STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: none)
