    American War Stories: Vietnam [#103] Drawdown Drawdown looks at the "Vietnamization" of the war--the eventual decision by the United States to turn the war over to South Vietnam--allowing the gradual return of American troops home. This hour focuses on the real costs of war, including the broken bodies and spirits that are the inevitable result of conflict. Veterans recount what it was like coming home to a divided nation, when protestors blamed the warrior for the war. Two prisoners of war share how they successfully survived years at the infamous "Hanoi Hilton" prison camp. Drawdown also highlights the wonderful rescue of thousands of babies from Saigon orphanages, dubbed "Operation Babylift", as South Vietnam began to fall to the Communists. The hour ends with some powerful reflections by Vietnam veterans who describe how profoundly the war affected their lives and discuss how not all the effects were bad. duration 56:47   STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: none)

    My Louisiana Love This program journeys with filmmaker Monique Verdin on a quest to connect with her ancestral roots within the Houma Nation, a Native American community reeling from decades of environmental degradation and natural disasters.
    The Houma, one of the largest Native American tribes in North America, live in South Louisiana communities where decaying marshlands serve as the only buffer against storm-surge floodwaters. Verdin sees her people's traditional way of life - and the land they live on - threatened by a cycle of man-made environmental crises. After witnessing the devastation caused by Hurricanes Katrina and Rita in 2005, and the BP oil spill in 2010, Verdin finds herself turning to environmental activism, and documenting her family's struggle to stay close to the land despite the cycle of disasters and the rapidly disappearing coastline.
    This film looks at the complex and uneven relationship between the oil and gas industry and the indigenous people of the Mississippi Delta. In this intimate portrait, Verdin must overcome the loss of her house, her father and her partner - and redefine the meaning of "home."

    Nothing Left to Lose Nothing Left to Lose is a documentary which tells the story of approximately 100 Vietnamese refugees who have each lived in hiding for 25 years hoping to one day reclaim the dignity of being recognized as a person. While the Vietnam War slowly fades away in our collective memory, there remains a group of Vietnamese in Thailand who are still searching for a new place to call home. These refugees escaped Vietnam after the end of the war, but were rejected by all countries in which they sought asylum. When all refugee camps in Southeast Asia were closed, the stateless refugees chose to stay in Thailand illegally, holding onto the hope of finding a new home. Over the last 25 years, the stateless Vietnamese have lingered in the shadows of Thai society dodging authorities with one hope in mind: to find a country that would accept them as its citizens. duration 56:40   STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: none)

    The First Official Thanksgiving This program tells the story of what some historians might call the first "official, English-speaking" Thanksgiving held in the Americas. At a meeting in London in 1618, Sir William Throckmorton, George Thorpe, John Smyth and Richard Berkeley gathered to form the Berkeley Company and discuss a land grant in the new world, given to them by King James I. The four Englishmen were to create a settlement in Virginia to be known as Berkeley Hundred. They chose Captain John Woodlief of Buckinghamshire, a ship's captain and a merchant trader who had been to the New World several times, to lead the expedition.
    Under Woodlief's command, the good ship Margaret left England on September 16, 1619 and reached the New World in two and a half months. On December 4, 1619, after an arduous voyage, a group of 36 men came ashore on the banks of the James River in Virginia. The group's charter required that the day of arrival be observed yearly as a "day of thanksgiving" to Almighty God for their safe passage to the New World. On that first day - a year before the Pilgrims landed on Plymouth Rock - Captain John Woodlief held the religious service of Thanksgiving.
    In 1931, Virginia history enthusiast Lyon Tyler (the fourth son of President John Tyler), accidently discovered the Nibley Papers in the New York Public Library, which recorded the historic 1619 voyage to the New World and the settlers' first Thanksgiving prayer. Through dramatic re-enactment and interviews from Graham Woodlief, a descendant of Capt. John Woodlief, Karla K. Bruno, author and biographer of Dr. Lyon Tyler, Chief Stephen Adkins of the Chickahominy Tribe, and several other individuals, this program challenges the long-held belief that America's first Thanksgiving was held in Plymouth, Mass., and chronicles how the discovery of the Nibley papers led to a friendly rivalry between Virginia and Massachusetts about who can rightfully lay claim to the birth of America's Thanksgiving holiday.

    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)
