    Independent Lens [#1603] Brakeless On April 25, 2005, a West Japan Railway (West JR) commuter train crashed into an apartment building and killed 107 people. Afterward, an official report concluded the cause of the accident was over-speeding when the train's driver tried to make up an 80-second delay. What made the train's driver risk so many lives for an 80-second delay? "Brakeless" looks at Japanese society and asks if it is bound to the pursuit of efficiency at all costs. Have the national virtues of punctuality and loyalty to protocol become societal impediments and even dangers to the people of Japan?

    Washington Week [#5648] * The federal investigation into Russian meddling in the U.S. presidential election reached President Trump's innermost circle Thursday. The Washington Post reported that the president's senior adviser and son-in-law Jared Kushner is a focus of investigations and officials believe he has information relevant to their ongoing probe into potential ties between the Trump campaign and Russia. Kushner has not been accused of wrongdoing, but he is now the only current White House official considered key to the investigation. The FBI is still interested in former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort and former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn.
    * Congressional inquiries continue to move ahead as well. Fired FBI Director James Comey is set to testify next week. Earlier this week, former CIA Director John Brennan testified about interactions between the Trump campaign and Russia - but stopped short of calling it collusion.
    *All this is unfolding as the president is wrapping up his first foreign trip. At the NATO summit, Trump was forced to mend fences with British Prime Minister Theresa May after the UK stopped sharing intelligence about the recent terror attack with the United States. < br>Robert Costa will get an update on stories from Washington to Italy with: Adam Entous of The Washington Post, Vivian Salama of the Associated Press, Peter Baker of The New York Times, and Erica Werner of the Associated Press.

    Doolittle's Raiders: A Final Toast The bottle of 1896 Hennessy Cognac was uncorked in front of hundreds of people. The surviving World War II veterans from one of history's greatest military missions were about to raise their silver goblets one last time ending a decades long tradition. It was time for the veterans to hold this final toast. They could wait no longer. Their numbers had dwindled to just a few. Many of the names of the 80 flyers who took part in the April 18, 1942 raid on Japan may not be familiar to most, but collectively they will always be known in history as the Doolittle Tokyo Raiders. Long ago these American flyers, aboard 16 B-25 bombers, had accomplished a daring mission that changed the morale of an entire nation. The aviators, led by famed commander Lt. Col. James Harold Doolittle, had taken the fight directly to the enemy for the first time in the war and delivered retribution for Japan's sneak attack on Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941 duration 57:35   STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: none)

    Doc World [#113] One Child The 2008 Sichuan earthquake, China's deadliest disaster in three decades, killed 90,000 people, including more than 5,000 children. Losing a child is an immeasurable tragedy for parents anywhere, but in China the effect is compounded by the one-child policy. This means that if you lose your child, you're often losing your one and only child - and with it the totality of your life's emotional investment. In response to the earthquake, China's government made an exception for those who lost their only child to conceive another. One Child follows the journey of these three families as they try to restore a sense of normalcy and struggle to move past the loss of their children. duration 56:46   STEREO (Secondary audio: none)

    Global Voices [#714] Here Comes Uncle Joe He is not their uncle, and his name is not Joe. But to the old ladies of An-dong, a rural community in southeastern Korea, Uncle Joe is almost the only contact they have with the modern world. As the young leave these rural areas to acquire higher education and to find high salary jobs in the cities, there are no services or people to support old people. In this situation, Uncle Joe becomes the only man for the old.
    However, his road taken isn't always happy. Because of their advanced years, Joe often encounters his old customer-friends' misery and death. Moreover, as he reflects on his life, he faces his inner conflict and shame. In this film, we see how Uncle Joe serves these communities with humor and attention, how love and friendship are infused in life, and how he overcomes his conflicts with his friends.

    Johnny Cash's Bitter Tears Based on Antonino D'Ambrosio's book A Heartbeat and a Guitar: Johnny Cash and the Making of Bitter Tears, this film tells the story behind Cash's lost Native American-themed concept album and his unique collaboration with folk artist Peter Lafarge. With the still largely unknown recording, Cash placed himself in the middle of the fervent social upheavals gripping the nation in the mid-1960s; facing censorship and an angry backlash from radio stations, DJs and fans for speaking out on behalf of Native people, Cash decided to fight back. The film also chronicles the reimagining of Cash's highly controversial 1964 record on its 50th anniversary, as recorded at Nashville's historic Sound Emporium Studios by such artists as Kris Kristofferson, Steve Earle, Emmylou Harris, Norman Blake, Nancy Blake, Rhiannon Giddens, Gillian Welch, Dave Rawlings, and The Milk Carton Kids, working with album producer Joe Henry and legendary studio musicians Dennis Crouch, Patrick Warren, and Jay Bellerose. duration 56:46   STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: none)

    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)

    Rikers: An American Jail The United States is facing a crisis of mass incarceration with over 2.2 million people packed into its jails and prisons. To understand the human toll of this crisis, Rikers Island is a good place to start. Of the more than 7500 people detained at Rikers Island on any given day, almost 80% have not yet been found guilty or innocent of the charges they face. All are at risk in the pervasive culture of violence that forces people to come to terms with what they must do for their own survival.
    This documentary from Bill Moyers brings you face to face with men and women who have endured incarceration at Rikers Island. Their stories, told direct to camera, vividly describe the cruel arc of the Rikers experience - from the shock of entry, to the extortion and control exercised by other inmates, the oppressive interaction with corrections officers, the beatings and stabbings, the torture of solitary confinement and the many challenges of returning to the outside world.
