  • 3:30 am
    Washington Week [#5719] Republican leaders and the White House are saying that Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore should step aside if allegations that he had inappropriate relations with teenagers when he was in his 30s (link is external) are true. Moore is denying the charges and says he will continue his campaign to fill the seat vacated by Jeff Sessions.

    *We will take a closer look at the controversial political career of this former judge and explain why the December 12 special election could be pivotal for both parties.

    *Democrats claimed big wins in the 2017 election from coast to coast, raising questions about Republicans ability to maintain their majority after next year's midterm elections.

    *A strong showing by an inspired and diverse Democratic electorate in Virginia's urban centers and college towns, and suburban Washington, DC turned a gubernatorial race considered too tight to call into a blow-out victory for Democrats. It was a similar story in the New Jersey governor's race, where a first-time Democratic candidate defeated the sitting lieutenant governor.

    *GOP Speaker Paul Ryan says the losses are not a rejection of President Trump's agenda, and he and fellow House and Senate Republicans remain focused on passing tax reform. But while Ryan and party leadership try to stay focused on their legislative agenda, sixteen Republican members of Congress have announced they are not seeking re-election next year.

    *On the other side of the world, an unexpectedly low-key President Trump continues his 12-day trip to Asia. Arriving in China, Trump delivered effusive praise to Chinese President Xi Jinping saying China deserves "great credit" for "taking advantage" of the U. S. on trade

    *He then argued that a level economic playing field would improve the two countries' relationship. The president is also trying to convince Xi to work with the U.S. to defuse North Korea's nuclear threat to the region and beyond.

    *Robert Costa discusses Trump's high stakes visit to Asia and analyzes the results and repercussions of Tuesday's election with:

    America Reframed [#515] On A Knife Edge On a Knife Edge is the coming-of-age story of George Dull Knife, a Lakota teenager growing up on South Dakota's Pine Ridge Reservation. The film traces George's path to activism, inspired by his family's long history of fighting for justice for Native Americans. His focus: shutting down the liquor stores in Whiteclay, a tiny town nearby that exists only to sell beer to the reservation's vulnerable population. With 5 million cans sold a year, the devastating results include public drunkenness and violence. George joins the American Indian Movement in protesting the liquor stores, and his growing political awareness leads him on a collision course with the police and the reservation's tribal council. Filmed over four years, the documentary follows George as he learns to define the concepts of warrior, tradition, and duty in new ways. duration 59:22   STEREO (Secondary audio: none)

    Heroes On Deck: World War II On Lake Michigan This documentary sheds light on a little-known training operation conducted by the US Navy on Lake Michigan during WWII. Between 1942 and 1945, following the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, the Navy trained nearly 15,000 pilots, including 41st President George H.W. Bush, to land and take off from two makeshift aircraft carriers - the Seaandbee and Greater Buffalo - in the safety of landlocked Lake Michigan. These freshwater "flattops," converted from two vintage, side-wheeled,coal-fired passenger steamers, were unlike anything in the fleet and the training program was not without hazards. There were many crashes including some fatal accidents.
    As a result, more than 100 classic WWII fighters and dive bombers sank to the bottom of Lake Michigan, preserved in the lake's frigid, oxygen-deprived depths. It wasn't until the late 1970s, that interest in resurrecting the WWII fighters surfaced, and with the approval of the US Navy, a skilled team of professionals developed the tools and techniques to locate and recover the forgotten warplanes. Using deep-water divers, side-scan sonar, and remotely operated underwater vehicles (ROV's), many of the planes have been recovered, raised and restored over the course of the past 30 years, and these efforts continue today.

    American War Stories: Vietnam [#102] Turning Point Turning Point recounts the growth of American forces to over 500,000 troops by 1968, and how some Americans estimated the Communist enemy's days were numbered and the war would be over in months. Yet the shock of North Vietnam's massive Tet Offensive surprised and dismayed a public that was tiring of the weekly scene of flag draped caskets arriving at Dover, Delaware. Stories from Marines trapped in the deadly siege of Khe Sanh and of the terror of "walking point", when a soldier leads his squad into the jungle, highlight the danger and intensity of this phase of the war. Turning Point also explores the illogical set of rules of when, who, and how our troops could attack the enemy, a system that perplexed our men and women to no end. But the war also had its lighter moments when soldiers had a chance to kick back and relax. In this hour, veterans reminisce about going on R&R's - Rest and Relaxation breaks - in Hawaii, and how difficult it was to return. Soldiers also talk about nonsense games they created to beat the boredom. There were even rare moments of romance, and one soldier tells the story of how he fell hard for a South Vietnamese girl with whom he just celebrated their 42nd year of marriage! duration 56:47   STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: none)

    Service: When Women Come Marching Home This program takes the audience on a journey from the deserts of Afghanistan to rural Tennessee and from Iraq to urban New York City. It shows women functioning as fully accepted and contributing members of a military unit as well as the devastating isolation and persecution of those who report rape. We see these women as veterans fighting to find homes, demanding services, responding to therapy and gaining their independence. Through interviews in their kitchens, bathrooms, even therapy sessions this program reveals the raw truths of our women warriors fighting in the battlefield called "home." duration 59:00   STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: none)

    War Zone/Comfort Zone Women account for roughly 14% of the active-duty US military and more than 24% of the National Guard, yet they often receive less than a hero's welcome upon their return to civilian life. Many face poverty, homelessness and joblessness; deal with the psychological and physiological effects of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder from military sexual trauma and combatrelated injuries; and often receive poor service from a Veterans Administration ill-equipped and, in some cases, unwilling to help them.
    This Emmy-nominated documentary uncovers the plight of these veterans through the intense and personal stories of four women veterans coping with life after their military service. Each seeks a sense of normalcy and peace without the benefit of a comprehensive support system. It weaves together intimate interviews with the story of two women - Shalini Madaras and Joy Kiss - struggling to establish transitional housing for homeless female veterans in Bridgeport, Connecticut, despite virulent community opposition.
