    Hitmakers HITMAKERS is an up-close look at the music industry's resilience in the digital age, from the perspective of groundbreaking artists, music label mavericks and game-changing managers. These crucial players have shaped the music business over the past 100 years, changing pop culture in the process. Today's artists challenge the paradigm further, taking control of their careers and sometimes shucking the system altogether to record and release music on their own. Record labels large and small also have found they must innovate to thrive. Entertaining and thoughtful, HITMAKERS boasts an unforgettable soundtrack. The special features interviews and performances from notable artists such as Melissa Etheridge, The Roots' Questlove, Sharon Jones, rising DJ/producer Steve Aoki and many more. duration 56:46   STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: none)

  • 5:00 am
    The Committee This program chronicles the actions of the little-known Florida Legislative Investigation Committee (also known as the Johns Committee) that existed between 1956-1965.
    The committee was formed in 1956 in response to the Brown vs. Board of Education Supreme Court decision and amidst wide-spread anti-Communist fears in the country. Its initial targets were civil rights activists and members of the NAACP who were pushing for desegregation in Florida. In 1961, Florida Senator and Committee Chairman Charley Johns shifted the focus from civil rights activists to Communist sympathizers and homosexual teachers and students at state universities. During its existence, the Committee was successful in firing or expelling more than 200 suspected gay and lesbian students and teachers throughout Florida.
    Through archival footage and photos, and interviews with former students Rev. Ruth Jensen-Forbell and Chuck Woods, and retired police officer John Tileston, Jr., the documentary highlights the scare tactics used by the Johns Committee in its attempt to root out homosexuality and Communism on state campuses. Chuck Woods - who had been interrogated by John Tileston, Jr. as a student at the time - reunites with him publicly for the first time in 50 years to discuss what happened during that dark period in the state's history.

    Nova [#4209] Dawn of Humanity Nova and National Geographic present exclusive access to an astounding discovery of ancient fossil human ancestors. Located in an almost inaccessible chamber deep in a South African cave, the site required recruiting a special team of experts slender enough to squeeze through a maze of passages. They have brought to light an unprecedented wealth of fossils belonging to a crucial gap in the record of our origins that spans the transition between the ape-like australopithecines (such as the famous Lucy) and the earliest members of the human family. At the center of the discovery is paleoanthropologist Lee Berger, a big character, brimming with enthusiasm and opinions, whose claims have stirred long controversy in the contentious field of human origins. Join Nova as we solve a two million year-old "crime scene" and dig into extraordinary new clues about what made us human. duration 1:56:46   STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: none)
