    Assassination: Idaho's Trial of the Century This program combines re-enactments, stills, expert commentary and archival footage to piece together one of the most famous criminal trials in US history. In the summer of 1907, the long-simmering tensions between trade unionists and capitalists finally played out in an Idaho courtroom when "Big Bill" Haywood, the secretary-treasurer of the Western Federation of Miners, stood charged with orchestrating the murder of former governor Frank Steunenberg. The 3-month trial thrust Idaho into the national spotlight, as two of the West's sharpest legal minds, criminal lawyer James Hawley and newly elected United States Senator William Borah, clashed with legendary defense attorney Clarence Darrow in a "struggle for the soul of America." duration 56:46   STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: none)

    Papers: Stories of Undocumented Youth "Papers" is the story of undocumented youth and the challenges they face as they turn 18 without legal status. Eleven million undocumented immigrants live in the United States. Of those, four and a half million were brought to the U.S. as children. These are young people who were educated in American schools, hold American values, know only the U.S. as home and who, upon high school graduation, find the door to their future slammed shut. 65,000 undocumented students graduate every year from high school without "papers." It is against the law to work or drive. It is difficult, if not impossible in some states, to attend college. They live at risk of arrest, detention and deportation to countries they may not even remember. Currently, there is no path to citizenship for most of these young people. Graham Street Productions produced this film in association with El Grupo Juvenil (the "Papers" Youth Crew). These youth producers were actively involved in all aspects of the production. They have worked in collaboration with immigrant youth around the country who want to tell their stories and change immigration policy. duration 59:00   STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: none)

This film puts this culinary tradition under the microscope to examine both its benefits and consequences. Hurt looks at the socioeconomics of predominantly black neighborhoods, where it can be difficult to find healthy options and wonders if soul food has become an addiction in his community. duration 56:46   STEREO TVPG-L (Secondary audio: none)
