    Washington Week [#5723] On this week's WASHINGTON WEEK, we track major developments on Capitol Hill. Democrats cast out Sen. Al Franken, D-Minn., and Rep. John Conyers, D-Mich., amid accusations of sexual misconduct, while Republicans rally around Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore, who has been accused of pursuing teenagers when he was in his thirities.
    President Donald Trump's decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital has triggered unrest in the region and raised concerns about the peace process between Israel and the Palestinians.
    Plus, more revelations from special prosecutor Robert Mueller's investigation and reports a whistleblower told investigators former national security advisor Michael Flynn texted about a Russia nuclear deal during the inauguration.
    On Wednesday, President Trump fulfilled a campaign promise, announcing plans to move the US embassy in Israel to Jerusalem. The decision - which effectively recognizes Jerusalem as Israel's capital - is drawing widespread international condemnation and further isolates the US from its traditional partners. While Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu proclaims the decision an "important step toward peace," Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas describes the move as "a threat to the future of the peace process" that kills Trump's plans to broker the "ultimate deal," peace in the Middle East.
    Elsewhere, repercussions from Flynn's plea deal and cooperation with special prosecutor Robert Mueller continue to raise questions about contact between the Trump transition team and Russian officials. The president's loyalty to the former four-star general is being tested by revelations Flynn was discussing a Russia nuclear deal with an associate on inauguration day.
    During a House Intelligence Committee meeting, Donald Trump Jr. refused to share details about a meeting at Trump Tower with a Russian lawyer during the campaign.
    And just days after civil rights icon and the longest-serving member of the House, Rep. John Conyers, D-Mich., announced his immediate retirement from Congress, Sen. Al Franken, D-Minn., announced he would resign his seat at the end of the year, both in response to accusations of sexual misconduct.
    Meanwhile, in Alabama, Republican candidate Roy Moore is tied or moving ahead in polls for the Alabama Senate race despite ongoing accusations of sexual misconduct with teenagers as young as 14. After initially pulling their support for Moore in response to the accusations, the RNC followed up President Donald Trump's endorsement by restoring its financial support for Moore's campaign. Former chief White House strategist Steve Bannon gave Moore another boost during a rally this week where he slammed the Republican establishment as "cowards," and directed some nasty jabs at 2012 GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney and Sen. Jeff Flake, R-Ariz.
    Robert Costa discusses the ongoing Russian probe, Trump's Jerusalem decision, and what the stark difference between the treatment of Roy Moore and his Democratic rivals means for the State of Alabama and the nation with:

    Deeply Rooted: John Coykendall's Journey to Save Our Seeds and Stories For more than 40 years, John Coykendall - a renowned seed saver, classically trained artist and a master gardener at Blackberry Farm resort in the Smoky Mountains of Tennessee - has been preserving the seeds, traditions, oral histories and foodways of a small rural farming community in Louisiana. The documentary DEEPLY ROOTED: JOHN COYKENDALL'S JOURNEY TO SAVE OUR SEEDS AND STORIES chronicles how Coykendall has tracked down and safeguarded rare and heirloom varieties of crops historically grown in the region and safely returned them to the descendants of farmers who described them to him decades earlier. Since 1973, he has been visiting Washington Parish, Louisiana, illustrating and documenting the oral histories, farming techniques, and folk tales of elderly farmers and backyard gardeners in volumes of moleskin notebooks detailing an agricultural way of life that is at risk of loss across our nation. A Tennessee native, the 73-year-old Coykendall is a true Renaissance man and a celebrity in a growing movement that places a premium on farm-to-table cuisine and locally sourced, organic and heirloom food. He is a classically trained artist who studied at the Ringling College of Art & Design in Sarasota, Florida, and worked as an instructor at the the School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston. He is also well-known for his sketches of the pastoral landscape in which he works. Using a mix of historical photographs of the region and its residents, the film traces his work and time spent in the Parish. Through his deeds, John hopes to inspire others to view these rare seeds and stories as grounding us to the earth and rooting us both to our past and our future. duration 56:46   STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: none)

    Doc World [#112] Finding Samuel Lowe Retired NBC Universal executive Paula Williams Madison and her brothers, Elrick and Howard Williams, were raised in Harlem by their Chinese Jamaican mother, Nell Vera Lowe. Nell encouraged them to realize the rags-to-riches American dream, resulting in their growth from welfare recipients to wealthy entrepreneurs. In order to fulfill a promise to their mother to connect to her estranged father's people, they embark on a journey to uncover their ancestral roots. The three travel to the Toronto Hakka Chinese Conference where they connect to members of the Chinese Jamaican community. As the mystery of their grandfather's life unfolds, the trio travels to Jamaica, learning that their grandfather had a life there similar to their own, starting with humble beginnings in Mocho, Clarendon Parish, and ending with successful business ownership in the affluent St. Ann's Bay. But in 1933, he left Jamaica, returning to China for good. Taking family tree research to an epic proportion, the siblings and 16 of their family members travel to two Chinese cities, ShenZhen and GuangZhou. Together, they visit their family's ancestral village, finding documented lineage that dates their family back 3,000 years to 1006 BC. The trip culminates in an emotional and unforgettable family reunion with 300 of their grandfather's Chinese descendants. duration 56:46   STEREO (Secondary audio: none)
  • 8:30 pm
    Crisis of Faith Narrated by Grammy-winning singer-songwriter Amy Grant, this program examines how slavery and biblical interpretations on its morality divided religious denominations and ultimately, the nation, in the Civil War era. Most Southerners deemed slavery integral to their way of life, and the Bible seemingly reinforced this belief. Christian figures in both the Old Testament and the New Testament never object to, nor do they condemn, the practice. Abolitionists, meanwhile, viewed slavery as an evil inconsistent with values of Christianity. In interviews, prominent religious scholars and historians discuss the evolution of arguments over slavery - from the rhetoric of freedom and equality stoked by the American Revolution; to the divisions of the Methodist, Baptist and Presbyterian churches into northern and southern factions; to the dividing of the nation and the eruption of Civil War. duration 28:46   STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: none)
