  • 2:00 am
    The Story of the Jews with Simon Schama [#104] Over The Rainbow Simon Schama plunges viewers into the lost world of the shtetl, the Jewish towns and villages sewn across the hinterlands of Eastern Europe, which became the seedbed of a uniquely Jewish culture. Shtetl culture would make its mark on the modern world, from the revolutionary politics of the Soviet Union to the mass culture of Tin Pan Alley and Hollywood. It was also the birthplaces of Hasidism, the most visible, iconic and, arguably, most misunderstood expression of Jewish faith and fervor. This episode travels from the forests of Lithuania, where Schama's own family logged wood and fought wolves, to the boulevards of Odessa, where shtetl kids argued the merits of revolutionary socialism over Zionism. From the Ukrainian city of Uman, where today thousands of the Hasidim chant and sing over the tomb of the wonder-working Rabbi Nachman, to the streets of Manhattan's lower east side, where the sons of shtetl immigrants wrote the American songbook. The program returns, with grim inevitability, to Eastern Europe in 1940, where the genocidal mechanisms of the "final solution" were beginning to grind the shtetl world into dust and ash. duration 56:46   STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: none)

    America Reframed [#514] Deej Deej is the story of DJ Savarese ("Deej"), a gifted, young writer and advocate for nonspeaking autistics. Once a "profoundly disabled" foster kid on a fast track to nowhere, DJ is now a first-year college student who insists on standing up for his peers: people who are dismissed as incompetent because they are neurologically diverse. Will Deej be able to find freedom for himself and others like him? duration 1:26:46   STEREO (Secondary audio: none)
  • MORNING
  • 6:00 am
    Mysteries of the Jesus Prayer This special takes viewers on a modern-day pilgrimage to the ancient lands where Christianity began. Accompany Emmy-award-winning producer Dr. Norris Chumley and renowned historian Very Rev. Dr. John McGuckin as they retrace the steps taken by two 7th Century Jerusalem monks seeking the wisdom and peace found in silence in their search of an ancient prayer heretofore unknown in the west. duration 56:44   STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: none)
  • 7:00 am
    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)
  • 7:30 am
    An American Mosque This documentary follows a group of Muslim farmers in Yuba City, California, as they struggle to build their local mosque only to see it destroyed by arson. In the wake of the fire, questions abound: Who committed the crime? Is the arson an act of hate? How will the community respond and rebuild?
    Despite their loss, the film's central characters are unrelenting in their conviction that all Americans are entitled to a religious sanctuary and the right to practice their faith openly. Witness how they regroup and peacefully respond to this devastating crime, while members of other faiths show their support. As mosque projects come under attack and hate-crimes against Muslims rise across the country, this program offers a cautionary tale showing the human consequence of this intolerance.
