    Journey Home to the USS Arizona Narrated by Matthew Broderick, the one-hour documentary JOURNEY HOME TO THE USS ARIZONA follows the family of Raymond Haerry Sr. as they travel 5,000 miles from New Jersey to the USS Arizona Memorial at Pearl Harbor in Honolulu, Hawaii, to place his ashes aboard the sunken battleship. Following the Pearl Harbor attack on December 7, 1941, 19-year-old Ray was blown into the water and swam through oil and fire to Ford Island, an islet in the center of Pearl Harbor, Oahu. There he found a rifle and opened fire on Japanese planes. Later, Ray helped to recover the bodies of his fallen shipmates. One of the few remaining crew members from the USS Arizona who survived the Japanese attack during World War II, Ray Haerry Sr. passed away at the age of 94 on September 27, 2016. In April of 2017, his ashes were interred in the USS Arizona, where he rejoined more than 1,000 of his shipmates who lost their lives on that fateful day. duration 57:04   STEREO TVPG

    America Reframed [#417] The Last Season Amid the bustling world of central Oregon's wild mushroom hunting camps, the lives of two former soldiers intersect. Roger, a 75 year-old sniper with the us special forces in Vietnam, and Kouy, a 46 year-old platoon leader of Cambodia's Khmer freedom fighters who battled the khmer Rouge, come together each fall to hunt the elusive matsutake mushroom, a rare mushroom prized in Japanese culture and cuisine. However, the pair discover more than just mushrooms in the woods: they find a new life, and livelihood; and, a means to slowly heal the scarring wounds of war. Told over the course of one Matsutake mushroom season, the Last Season is a journey into the woods, into the memory of war and survival, telling a story of family from an unexpected place. duration 1:26:46   STEREO (Secondary audio: none)

  • 6:30 am
    Lest We Forget - A Survivor's Story Traces the life of World War II veteran Gustav Potthoff, from his birth in Indonesia to his imprisonment in the Japanese slave labor camp responsible for building the infamous bridge over the River Kwai. Potthoff survived the brutal heat, lack of food and vicious captors but remained haunted by his nightmarish four-year captivity in Thailand. Decades later, he began painting visceral yet spiritual scenes of POW camp life - the guards, beatings, jungle, escape attempts and those left behind. During the film, Potthoff, his family and friends, museum curators and an art collector each convey the historical and cultural value of Potthoff's work. duration 26:46   STEREO TVRE (Secondary audio: none)
  • 7:00 am
    Urban Rez This program explores the controversial legacy and modern-day repercussions of the Urban Relocation Program (1952-1973), the greatest voluntary upheaval of Native Americans during the 20th century. During the documentary, dozens of American Indians representing tribal groups from across the West recall their first-hand experiences with relocation, including the early hardships, struggles with isolation and racism. Interviewees also speak about the challenges of maintaining one's own tribal traditions - from language to hunting - while assimilating into the larger society. Actor, musician and Oglala Lakota member Moses Brings Plenty narrates this insightful film about this seldom-told chapter in American history. duration 56:46   STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: none)
