Who Is Arthur Chu? (#612) Duration: 1:26:46 STEREO (Secondary audio: none)

Who is Arthur Chu? follows 11-time Jeopardy! winner Arthur Chu, who won almost $300,000. By using an unconventional game strategy, the former insurance analyst amassed tens of thousands of fans and haters on Twitter. In an effort to put his 15 minutes of TV fame to good use, Arthur aspires to become a public figure. By addressing topics such as racism and sexism particularly in gaming culture, his posture debunks the "model" Asian American stereotype.

Night School (#511) Duration: 1:26:46 STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: none)

Every year, over a million students drop out of high school. They may complete their graduate equivalency degrees, but then they discover they're still struggling to get good jobs. For some in Indianapolis, there's another option: a night school program that will get them their full high school diploma - if they can complete a tough curriculum that includes algebra and biology. NIGHT SCHOOL is an intimate look at a year in the lives of three students: a single father trying to make abetter life for his young daughter, an older woman looking to complete the schooling she abandoned almost 40 years before, and a young woman who needs her diploma to enroll in nursing school.

Oxyana (#509) Duration: 1:26:46 STEREO TV14-L (Secondary audio: none)

Tucked in the Appalachian mountains of Southern West Virginia, Oceana, is a small, once thriving coal-mining town that has fallen victim to the fast spreading scourge of prescription painkiller Oxycontin. As the coal industry slowly declined and times got tough, a black market for the drug sprung up and along with it a rash of prostitution, theft and murder. Soon its own residents had nicknamed the town Oxyana and it began to live up to its reputation as abuse, addiction and overdoses became commonplace. Oxyana is a harrowing front line account of a community in the grips of an epidemic, told through the voices of the addicts, the dealers and all those affected. It is a haunting glimpse into an American nightmare unfolding before our eyes, a cautionary tale told with raw and unflinching honesty.
