  • 12:00 am
    Fire in the Forest: The Life and Legacy of the Ba'al Shem Tov Rabbi Israel ben Eliezer (1698-1760), known as the Ba'al Shem Tov ("Master of the Good Name"), is one of the most beloved and celebrated, yet elusive, figures in Jewish history. Today, Jews worldwide - and even non-Jews - revere him as the founder of the Hasidic movement, a 18th-century offshoot of Judaism that promotes a mystical interpretation of the Bible, and as a model of piety and spirituality. This documentary explores the life and legacy of the Ba'al Shem Tov through interviews with religious leaders and scholars, and on-location footage. The title derives from a tale about rabbis finding a hidden fire in the forest where they could appeal to God for help and have their prayers answered. duration 57:44   STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: none)

    Quietest Place On Earth The Hawaiian Islands are the most remote major island group on earth. On the second-largest island of Maui, the Haleakala volcano rises 10, 000 feet - nearly two miles - into the sky. And the massive crater located at its summit carries the unique distinction of "The Quietest Place on Earth." For some, the exquisite stillness of this stark volcanic landscape can mimic a religious experience, while for others, it simply inspires a deeper awareness of humans' place in nature. This program explores Maui's geological and spiritual birthplace. duration 56:46   STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: none)
  • 2:00 am
    Three Faiths, One God: Judaism, Christianity, Islam [#101] The program captures a broad range of voices and ideas of ordinary people and respected scholars in the interfaith field, and contrasts the religious practices of the three faiths, including the rituals of fasting and marriage. Later, the program features a dramatic and moving example of reconciliation as the father of murdered Wall Street Journal reporter opens a dialogue between Muslims and Jews to create better understanding between the two faiths. In the same spirit, a conflict-resolution workshop engages in an intensive dialogue as they attempt to dispel myths, misconceptions and stereotypes about each others' religion. duration 56:46   STEREO TVPG

    Nature [#3304] Soul of the Elephant Ironically, every dead elephant with its ivory intact is a reason to celebrate. It means an elephant died of natural causes, not bullets, snares or poison, and a soul was allowed to be celebrated and mourned by its herd. Award-winning filmmakers, Dereck and Beverly Joubert start with the remains of two bull elephants and through a series of key flashbacks, look at the lives they would have led, the dramas they may have seen, their great migrations for water with their families, and their encounters with lions and hyenas. This film, shot over two years, will be an intimate look at elephants through the lens of perhaps the greatest storytellers of natural history. duration 56:46   STEREO TVPG-S (Secondary audio: none)

  • 7:00 am
    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)

    • 2/22/17: Fremont Peak tower transmissions, including KQET DT25

      (DT25.1 through 25.3) Recent storms have taken out dozens of trees on Fremont Peak, which in turn have taken down power lines leading to the transmission tower located on the peak.
