Children of Rape (Episode #1003H)

KQED 9: Sun, Jul 8, 2018 -- 5:30 PM

In Bosnia and Herzegovina, an estimated 12 to 50 thousand mainly Muslim women were systematically raped as part of the genocide and ethnic cleansing during the three-year war in the 1990s. Now, the children born as a result of those rapes are emerging to campaign for support and understanding. NewsHour Weekend Special Correspondent Malcolm Brabant was one of the first correspondents to report on the use of rape as a weapon of war in the country. Now he's back in Sarajevo to meet some of the people whose lives were scarred by that sexual violence.

Extreme Poverty (Episode #1002H)

KQED 9: Sat, Jul 7, 2018 -- 5:30 PM

There are more than three million people in the United States living in 'extreme poverty,' according to a report from the United Nations. These are people who have the same standard of living as the extremely poor in places like Pakistan, Nepal, Senegal, and other underdeveloped countries The UN Special Rapporteur for Extreme Poverty paid a visit to America last year to produce the kind of UN report more commonly associated with failing states. His mission took him to three hardscrabble locations across the continental United States including Lowndes County, Alabama. NewsHour Weekend Special Correspondent Simon Ostrovsky follows in the UN's footsteps and reports from Lowndes County.

Return to Madison (Episode #1001H)

KQED 9: Sun, Jul 1, 2018 -- 5:30 PM

Like many colleges in the politically tumultuous times of the late 1960s, the University of Wisconsin was the scene of violent clashes between students and police, anti-war sit-ins, and student strikes. This month, nearly 1,000 former students from that era reunited for "The Madison Reunion" to look back at the erstwhile counterculture movement and how it helped shape the United States today. NewsHour Weekend Special Correspondent Jeff Greenfield went to Madison to speak with some of the men and women who marched, organized, and protested.
