  • 12:30 am
    Our American Family: The Barreras The first half of the 1900's represents the last era of American life that, for most families, began largely unchanged from the generations that came before. From the darkness of a coal mine in New Mexico to vibrant beauty under the California sun, this program provides a compelling narrative of unwavering commitment to family. Life in the remote company-owned town of Madrid in the 1920s and '30s was a mixture of hard, dangerous work offset by the joy of baseball and celebrations. With the closing of the mine in the early '40s, the extended family re-established itself in southern California by living frugally and powerfully supporting one another through challenges. duration 26:46   STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: none)

    Daring Journey: from Immigration to Education Narrated by actor Peter Coyote, this documentary details the challenges and risks four individuals - Luis B., Sergio Garcia, Janet Robles and Ruben Robles, Sr. - are willing to take as they cross the border from Mexico to the United States in search of the "American Dream." It shows the human element to the often-debated and polarizing issue of immigration. Using interviews, re-enactments and archival footage, it offers a first-hand account of the struggles each of the four illegal immigrants face as they try to earn a living, seek a higher education for themselves and their children, and attempt to achieve a better way of life. duration 26:46   STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: none)
