FRONTLINE investigative correspondent Lowell Bergman examines the shadowy
world of international bribery. The story reveals how multi-national
companies create slush funds, set up front companies, and make secret
payments, all to get billions in business. But these practices are facing a
new international crackdown, led by prosecutors at the U.S. Department of
Justice and allies abroad. At the center of this is a controversial, ongoing
investigation into the British-based multi-national BAE Systems and
allegations about billion dollar bribes.

Americans are addicted to coal - it powers half of all our electricity, and
is both plentiful and cheap. In fact, some call America the "Saudi Arabia of
Coal." But are we paying too high an environmental price for all this cheap
energy? With carbon emissions caps high on the Obama Administration's agenda,
coal is in the crosshairs of the energy debate. This week, NOW Senior
Correspondent Maria Hinojosa travels to Wyoming to take a hard look at the
coal industry there and its case that it can produce "clean coal" - coal that
can be burned without releasing carbon into the atmosphere. President Obama
has been outspoken in his support for "clean coal" technology, but some say
the whole concept is more of a public relations campaign than an energy
solution. As part of the report, Hinojosa talks with Wyoming Governor Dave
Freudenthal and Jeff Goodell, the author of "Big Coal," who says that carbon
dioxide emissions generated from coal contribute to global warming. Our
investigation is part of a PBS-wide series on the country's infrastructure
called "Blueprint America."

From autos to world summitry to legal flip-flops - what worked and what
didn't, tonight on "Washington Week." British Prime Minister Gordon Brown
said, "The old Washington consensus is over. Today we have reached a new
consensus." President Barack Obama said, "The economic crisis has proven the
fact of our interdependence in the most visible way yet." Did president Obama
emerge from this week's international meetings weaker or stronger? The
protests in the streets couldn't overshadow the collegiality in the room for
the president or his wife, as new olive branches were extended to old
enemies. But what difference will it make in the long term? Sec. of State
Hillary Clinton said, "I did think that the Iranian intervention this morning
was promising." At home, the government steps in to save the troubled auto
industry. And it steps out of a high-profile prosecution, dropping its case
against a convicted U.S. senator. Brendan Sullivan said, "His name is clear.
He is innocent of the charges as if they'd never been brought." What changed?
Covering the week: John Harwood of CNBC and the New York Times, Martha
Raddatz of ABC News, David Wessel of the Wall Street Journal, and Pete
Williams of NBC News.

Thousands of U.S. troops are getting discharged out of the Army. Many suffer
from post traumatic stress disorders and brain injuries, and haven't been
getting the care they need. The Army's been claiming these discharged
soldiers had pre-existing mental illnesses. But health advocates say these
are wrongful discharges, a way for the army to get rid of "problem" soldiers
quickly, without giving them the treatment to which they're entitled. NOW
covered this issue last summer, and this week we revisit the Army's
controversial position and follow up with affected soldiers we met. As a
result of the media attention from our report and others, the Department of
Defense revised its criteria for diagnosing pre-existing conditions and, now,
fewer soldiers are receiving the diagnosis, making more of them eligible for
care. This is an update to the NOW investigation "Fighting the Army." Also
this week, we update how the distant Pacific nation of Kiribati is dealing
with the reality that both their land and culture could disappear from the
Earth due to global warming. Kiribati President Anote Tong is now considering
purchasing land abroad to save his people. He says his pleas for
international support have largely fallen on deaf ears. Experts predict



                                        23
millions of people will become climate change refugees in the years to come.
This is an update to the show "Paradise Lost."

From autos to world summitry to legal flip-flops - what worked and what
didn't, tonight on "Washington Week." British Prime Minister Gordon Brown
said, "The old Washington consensus is over. Today we have reached a new
consensus." President Barack Obama said, "The economic crisis has proven the
fact of our interdependence in the most visible way yet." Did president Obama
emerge from this week's international meetings weaker or stronger? The
protests in the streets couldn't overshadow the collegiality in the room for
the president or his wife, as new olive branches were extended to old
enemies. But what difference will it make in the long term? Sec. of State
Hillary Clinton said, "I did think that the Iranian intervention this morning
was promising." At home, the government steps in to save the troubled auto
industry. And it steps out of a high-profile prosecution, dropping its case
against a convicted U.S. senator. Brendan Sullivan said, "His name is clear.
He is innocent of the charges as if they'd never been brought." What changed?
Covering the week: John Harwood of CNBC and the New York Times, Martha
Raddatz of ABC News, David Wessel of the Wall Street Journal, and Pete
Williams of NBC News.

Americans are addicted to coal - it powers half of all our electricity, and
is both plentiful and cheap. In fact, some call America the "Saudi Arabia of
Coal." But are we paying too high an environmental price for all this cheap
energy? With carbon emissions caps high on the Obama Administration's agenda,
coal is in the crosshairs of the energy debate. This week, NOW Senior
Correspondent Maria Hinojosa travels to Wyoming to take a hard look at the
coal industry there and its case that it can produce "clean coal" - coal that
can be burned without releasing carbon into the atmosphere. President Obama
has been outspoken in his support for "clean coal" technology, but some say
the whole concept is more of a public relations campaign than an energy
solution. As part of the report, Hinojosa talks with Wyoming Governor Dave
Freudenthal and Jeff Goodell, the author of "Big Coal," who says that carbon
dioxide emissions generated from coal contribute to global warming. Our
investigation is part of a PBS-wide series on the country's infrastructure
called "Blueprint America."

continent and a bridge that joined North and South America, allowing flora
and fauna from each to mix and diversify. Today, the Andes continue to grow
and evolve and are home to a rich tapestry of environments, including the
largest ice field outside the poles, a desert where penguins nest, and
geysers a vertical mile high, where flamingos huddle for warmth.

Kilauea, on Hawaii's Big Island, is the world's most active volcano. Its
latest eruption began in 1983 and it hasn't stopped since. Since that time,
it has created 544 acres of new land and consumed 200 homes. But as we watch
nature's own fireworks display and witness the devastation wrought by flowing
lava, we've also been able to observe a process that's central to life on
these islands. The most spectacular moment of creation is when lava pours
into the ocean creating new land; it is here that filmmaker Paul Atkins finds
himself getting a shot few have ever filmed -- the cataclysmic meeting of
2,000-degree lava and 75-degree ocean water -- a sight to behold.

Thousands of U.S. troops are getting discharged out of the Army. Many suffer
from post traumatic stress disorders and brain injuries, and haven't been
getting the care they need. The Army's been claiming these discharged
soldiers had pre-existing mental illnesses. But health advocates say these
are wrongful discharges, a way for the army to get rid of "problem" soldiers
quickly, without giving them the treatment to which they're entitled. NOW
covered this issue last summer, and this week we revisit the Army's
controversial position and follow up with affected soldiers we met. As a
result of the media attention from our report and others, the Department of
Defense revised its criteria for diagnosing pre-existing conditions and, now,
fewer soldiers are receiving the diagnosis, making more of them eligible for
care. This is an update to the NOW investigation "Fighting the Army." Also
this week, we update how the distant Pacific nation of Kiribati is dealing
with the reality that both their land and culture could disappear from the
Earth due to global warming. Kiribati President Anote Tong is now considering
purchasing land abroad to save his people. He says his pleas for
international support have largely fallen on deaf ears. Experts predict
millions of people will become climate change refugees in the years to come.
This is an update to the show "Paradise Lost."

Over the past 21 years, NOVA has followed a group of seven doctors from their
first day at Harvard Medical School in 1987. All young, bright and
accomplished, none of them could have predicted what it would take,
personally and professionally, to become a member of the medical tribe.
NOVA's cameras have been there through the difficult years of classes and
clinical training, internship and residency, marriage and divorce --
documenting the trials and tribulations as these individuals struggled to
become doctors and to balance time at work and at home. Candid in-depth
interviews have given viewers a real sense of what each person has to deal
with day in and day out since he or she made the decision to practice
medicine. In this special two-part program, NOVA returns one last time to get
an update on the kind of doctors -- and people -- they have become. Part 1 of
2.

Thousands of U.S. troops are getting discharged out of the Army. Many suffer
from post traumatic stress disorders and brain injuries, and haven't been
getting the care they need. The Army's been claiming these discharged
soldiers had pre-existing mental illnesses. But health advocates say these
are wrongful discharges, a way for the army to get rid of "problem" soldiers
quickly, without giving them the treatment to which they're entitled. NOW
covered this issue last summer, and this week we revisit the Army's
controversial position and follow up with affected soldiers we met. As a
result of the media attention from our report and others, the Department of
Defense revised its criteria for diagnosing pre-existing conditions and, now,
fewer soldiers are receiving the diagnosis, making more of them eligible for
care. This is an update to the NOW investigation "Fighting the Army." Also
this week, we update how the distant Pacific nation of Kiribati is dealing
with the reality that both their land and culture could disappear from the
Earth due to global warming. Kiribati President Anote Tong is now considering
purchasing land abroad to save his people. He says his pleas for
international support have largely fallen on deaf ears. Experts predict
millions of people will become climate change refugees in the years to come.
This is an update to the show "Paradise Lost."

Thousands of U.S. troops are getting discharged out of the Army. Many suffer
from post traumatic stress disorders and brain injuries, and haven't been
getting the care they need. The Army's been claiming these discharged
soldiers had pre-existing mental illnesses. But health advocates say these
are wrongful discharges, a way for the army to get rid of "problem" soldiers
quickly, without giving them the treatment to which they're entitled. NOW
covered this issue last summer, and this week we revisit the Army's
controversial position and follow up with affected soldiers we met. As a
result of the media attention from our report and others, the Department of
Defense revised its criteria for diagnosing pre-existing conditions and, now,
fewer soldiers are receiving the diagnosis, making more of them eligible for
care. This is an update to the NOW investigation "Fighting the Army." Also
this week, we update how the distant Pacific nation of Kiribati is dealing
with the reality that both their land and culture could disappear from the
Earth due to global warming. Kiribati President Anote Tong is now considering
purchasing land abroad to save his people. He says his pleas for
international support have largely fallen on deaf ears. Experts predict
millions of people will become climate change refugees in the years to come.
This is an update to the show "Paradise Lost."

Americans are addicted to coal - it powers half of all our electricity, and
is both plentiful and cheap. In fact, some call America the "Saudi Arabia of
Coal." But are we paying too high an environmental price for all this cheap
energy? With carbon emissions caps high on the Obama Administration's agenda,
coal is in the crosshairs of the energy debate. This week, NOW Senior
Correspondent Maria Hinojosa travels to Wyoming to take a hard look at the
coal industry there and its case that it can produce "clean coal" - coal that
can be burned without releasing carbon into the atmosphere. President Obama
has been outspoken in his support for "clean coal" technology, but some say
the whole concept is more of a public relations campaign than an energy
solution. As part of the report, Hinojosa talks with Wyoming Governor Dave
Freudenthal and Jeff Goodell, the author of "Big Coal," who says that carbon
dioxide emissions generated from coal contribute to global warming. Our
investigation is part of a PBS-wide series on the country's infrastructure
called "Blueprint America."

From autos to world summitry to legal flip-flops - what worked and what
didn't, tonight on "Washington Week." British Prime Minister Gordon Brown
said, "The old Washington consensus is over. Today we have reached a new
consensus." President Barack Obama said, "The economic crisis has proven the
fact of our interdependence in the most visible way yet." Did president Obama
emerge from this week's international meetings weaker or stronger? The
protests in the streets couldn't overshadow the collegiality in the room for
the president or his wife, as new olive branches were extended to old
enemies. But what difference will it make in the long term? Sec. of State
Hillary Clinton said, "I did think that the Iranian intervention this morning
was promising." At home, the government steps in to save the troubled auto
industry. And it steps out of a high-profile prosecution, dropping its case
against a convicted U.S. senator. Brendan Sullivan said, "His name is clear.
He is innocent of the charges as if they'd never been brought." What changed?
Covering the week: John Harwood of CNBC and the New York Times, Martha
Raddatz of ABC News, David Wessel of the Wall Street Journal, and Pete
Williams of NBC News.

Where to begin? Where will it end? We take a look tonight on "Washington

redefining the U.S. role on the world stage. Pres. Barack Obama said, "The
stereotypes of the United States are out there. I'm here to tell you that
that's not the country that I know and it's not the country that I love."
Coping with nuclear uncertainty. Sec. of State Hillary Clinton said, "We
don't know what to believe about the Iranian program." Figuring out when it
helps and when it hurts to keep campaign promises on foreign policy. And
learning how to use a strong second in command to push back." Vice Pres. Joe
Biden said, "The last administration left us in a weaker posture than we've

challenges take shape, so do the responses. Covering the week: David Sanger

From autos to world summitry to legal flip-flops - what worked and what
didn't, tonight on "Washington Week." British Prime Minister Gordon Brown
said, "The old Washington consensus is over. Today we have reached a new
consensus." President Barack Obama said, "The economic crisis has proven the
fact of our interdependence in the most visible way yet." Did president Obama
emerge from this week's international meetings weaker or stronger? The
protests in the streets couldn't overshadow the collegiality in the room for
the president or his wife, as new olive branches were extended to old
enemies. But what difference will it make in the long term? Sec. of State
Hillary Clinton said, "I did think that the Iranian intervention this morning
was promising." At home, the government steps in to save the troubled auto
industry. And it steps out of a high-profile prosecution, dropping its case
against a convicted U.S. senator. Brendan Sullivan said, "His name is clear.
He is innocent of the charges as if they'd never been brought." What changed?

Thousands of U.S. troops are getting discharged out of the Army. Many suffer
from post traumatic stress disorders and brain injuries, and haven't been
getting the care they need. The Army's been claiming these discharged
soldiers had pre-existing mental illnesses. But health advocates say these
are wrongful discharges, a way for the army to get rid of "problem" soldiers
quickly, without giving them the treatment to which they're entitled. NOW
covered this issue last summer, and this week we revisit the Army's
controversial position and follow up with affected soldiers we met. As a
result of the media attention from our report and others, the Department of
Defense revised its criteria for diagnosing pre-existing conditions and, now,
fewer soldiers are receiving the diagnosis, making more of them eligible for
care. This is an update to the NOW investigation "Fighting the Army." Also
this week, we update how the distant Pacific nation of Kiribati is dealing
with the reality that both their land and culture could disappear from the
Earth due to global warming. Kiribati President Anote Tong is now considering
purchasing land abroad to save his people. He says his pleas for
international support have largely fallen on deaf ears. Experts predict
millions of people will become climate change refugees in the years to come.
This is an update to the show "Paradise Lost."

And the hits just keep on coming from nuclear threats to pirate threats.
Where to begin? Where will it end? We take a look tonight on "Washington
Week." President Obama is tackling his to-do list. The challenges are many -
redefining the U.S. role on the world stage. Pres. Barack Obama said, "The
stereotypes of the United States are out there. I'm here to tell you that
that's not the country that I know and it's not the country that I love."
Coping with nuclear uncertainty. Sec. of State Hillary Clinton said, "We
don't know what to believe about the Iranian program." Figuring out when it
helps and when it hurts to keep campaign promises on foreign policy. And
learning how to use a strong second in command to push back." Vice Pres. Joe
Biden said, "The last administration left us in a weaker posture than we've
been at any time since World War II, less regarded in the world." As the
challenges take shape, so do the responses. Covering the week: David Sanger
of the New York Times, Christi Parsons of the Chicago Tribune, Doyle McManus
of the Los Angeles Times, and Gloria Borger of CNN.

More than two decades after the Clean Water Act was supposed to make
America's waters clean enough for swimming and fishing again, two iconic
waterways - the great coastal estuaries of Puget Sound and the Chesapeake Bay
- are in perilous condition. With polluted runoff still flowing in from
industry, agriculture and massive suburban development, scientists fear
contamination to the food chain and drinking water for millions of people. A
growing list of endangered species also is threatened in both estuaries. As a
new President, Congress and states set agendas and spending priorities,
FRONTLINE correspondent Hedrick Smith examines the rising hazards to human
health and the eco-system and why it's so hard to keep our waters clean.

Seventy-five percent of the world's fresh water is stored in glaciers, but
scientists predict climate change will cause some of the world's largest
glaciers to completely melt by 2030. What effect will this have on our daily
lives? With global warming falling low on a national list of American
concerns, it's time to take a deeper look at what could be a global calamity
in the making. This week, in a special one-hour NOW on PBS, David Brancaccio
and environmentalist Conrad Anker -- one of the world's leading high altitude
climbers -- trek to the Gangotri Glacier in the Himalayan Mountains, the
source of the Ganges River, to witness the great melt and its dire
consequences first-hand. The two also visit Montana's Glacier National Park
to see the striking effects of global warming closer to home and learn how
melting glaciers across the globe can have a direct impact on food prices in
the U.S. Along the way, Brancaccio and Anker talk to both scientists and
swamis, bathe in the River Ganges, view a water shortage calamity in India,
and come as close as any human can to seeing the tangible costs of climate
change. "We can't take climate change and put it on the back burner," warns
Anker. "If we don't address climate change, we won't be around as humans."

This year, hundreds of thousands of prisoners with serious mental illnesses
will be released into communities across America, the largest exodus in the
nation's history. Typically, mentally ill offenders leave prison with a bus
ticket, $75 and two weeks worth of medication. Within eighteen months, nearly
two-thirds are re-arrested. In this follow up to the groundbreaking film "The
New Asylums," FRONTLINE examines what happens to the mentally ill when they
leave prison and why they return at such alarming rates. The intimate stories
of the released-along with interviews with parole officers, social workers,
and psychiatrists provide a rare look at the lives of the mentally ill as
they struggle to stay out of prison and reintegrate into society.

In the spring of 1805, Tenskwatawa (actor Billy Merasty, Cree First Nation),
a Shawnee, fell into a trance so deep that those around him believed he had
died. When he finally stirred, the young prophet claimed to have met the
Master of Life. He told those who crowded around that the Indians were in
dire straits because they had adopted white culture and rejected traditional
spiritual ways. For several years, Tenskwatawa's spiritual revival movement
drew thousands of adherents from tribes across the Midwest. His elder
brother, Tecumseh (actor Michael Greyeyes, Plains Cree), would harness the
energies of that renewal to create an unprecedented military and political
confederacy of often antagonistic tribes, all committed to stopping white
westward expansion. The brothers came closer than anyone since to creating an
Indian nation that would exist alongside and separate from the United States.
The dream of an independent Indian state may have died at the Battle of the
Thames, when Tecumseh was killed fighting alongside his British allies, but
the great Shawnee warrior would live on as a potent symbol of Native pride
and pan-Indian identity.

Seventy-five percent of the world's fresh water is stored in glaciers, but
scientists predict climate change will cause some of the world's largest
glaciers to completely melt by 2030. What effect will this have on our daily
lives? With global warming falling low on a national list of American
concerns, it's time to take a deeper look at what could be a global calamity
in the making. This week, in a special one-hour NOW on PBS, David Brancaccio
and environmentalist Conrad Anker -- one of the world's leading high altitude
climbers -- trek to the Gangotri Glacier in the Himalayan Mountains, the
source of the Ganges River, to witness the great melt and its dire
consequences first-hand. The two also visit Montana's Glacier National Park
to see the striking effects of global warming closer to home and learn how
melting glaciers across the globe can have a direct impact on food prices in
the U.S. Along the way, Brancaccio and Anker talk to both scientists and
swamis, bathe in the River Ganges, view a water shortage calamity in India,
and come as close as any human can to seeing the tangible costs of climate
change. "We can't take climate change and put it on the back burner," warns
Anker. "If we don't address climate change, we won't be around as humans."

This year, hundreds of thousands of prisoners with serious mental illnesses
will be released into communities across America, the largest exodus in the
nation's history. Typically, mentally ill offenders leave prison with a bus
ticket, $75 and two weeks worth of medication. Within eighteen months, nearly
two-thirds are re-arrested. In this follow up to the groundbreaking film "The
New Asylums," FRONTLINE examines what happens to the mentally ill when they
leave prison and why they return at such alarming rates. The intimate stories
of the released-along with interviews with parole officers, social workers,
and psychiatrists provide a rare look at the lives of the mentally ill as
they struggle to stay out of prison and reintegrate into society.

A terrible statistic: one in six women will be a victim of rape or attempted
rape in her lifetime. But an even more shocking reality: A backlog in
processing rape kits--crucial evidence in arresting violent predators -- is
delaying and sometimes denying justice for tens of thousands of American
women. NOW travels to Los Angeles County to investigate why it has the
largest known rape kit backlog in the country -- over 12,000 kits are sitting
untested in police storage facilities. An internal audit found that more than
50 of these cases have exceeded the 10-year statute of limitations on rape.
"The evidence that we're talking about represents human lives," Los Angeles
Controller Laura Chick tells NOW. "Those are lives stacked up on the shelves
waiting for justice." NOW talks with courageous rape survivors and law
enforcement experts for insight and answers in this disturbing but important
report. Are these women being victimized twice?

How do we interrogate terrorist suspects? How do we police our border, our
banks - tonight on "Washington Week?" Simulated drowning, threats, shackles,
new details emerge on how the CIA interrogated terror suspects. Were the
tactics only technically legal and did they work? The U.S. speaks to its
southern neighbors, emphasizing that border security works both ways. Pres.
Barack Obama said, "More than 90 percent of the guns recovered in Mexico come
from the United States. We have responsibilities as well." And loosening the
embargo on Cuba. Pres. Obama said, "A relationship that effectively has been
frozen for 50 years is not going to thaw overnight." Plus this week on the
economy - banks are actually making money. What's going on? Covering the
week: Pete Williams of NBC News, Spencer Hsu of the Washington Post, Tom
Gjelten of National Public Radio, and Eamon Javers of Politico.

Every hot button you can imagine - torture, wiretapping, the credit crunch,
and race, all being debated at once tonight on "Washington Week." Attorney
General Eric Holder said, "I will not permit the criminalization of policy
differences. However, it is my responsibility as the attorney general to
enforce the law." Rep. Rahm Emanuel (D-IL) said, "It is not a time to use our
energy and our time in looking back, and in a sense of anger and
retribution." As Congress and the intelligence agencies struggle with new
disclosures about the limits of interrogation, a moral, legal, and political
debate erupts. Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) said, "To tell lawyers that they're
going to be prosecuted criminally for the best advice, even if it was bad
advice, that they gave the president of the United States to my mind sets a
terrible precedent for the future." The controversy builds. At the Supreme
Court, a pivotal moment in the race debate. When is it okay to take race into
account? When is it discriminatory? And as the economy reels, how and why are
the rules changing on credit? Who pays and who gets crunched? Covering the
week: Mark Mazzetti of the New York Times, Dan Balz of the Washington Post,
Joan Biskupic of USA Today, and Jeanne Cummings of Politico.

southern neighbors, emphasizing that border security works both ways. Pres.
Barack Obama said, "More than 90 percent of the guns recovered in Mexico come
from the United States. We have responsibilities as well." And loosening the
embargo on Cuba. Pres. Obama said, "A relationship that effectively has been

Every hot button you can imagine - torture, wiretapping, the credit crunch,
and race, all being debated at once tonight on "Washington Week." Attorney
General Eric Holder said, "I will not permit the criminalization of policy
differences. However, it is my responsibility as the attorney general to
enforce the law." Rep. Rahm Emanuel (D-IL) said, "It is not a time to use our
energy and our time in looking back, and in a sense of anger and
retribution." As Congress and the intelligence agencies struggle with new
disclosures about the limits of interrogation, a moral, legal, and political
debate erupts. Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) said, "To tell lawyers that they're
going to be prosecuted criminally for the best advice, even if it was bad
advice, that they gave the president of the United States to my mind sets a
terrible precedent for the future." The controversy builds. At the Supreme
Court, a pivotal moment in the race debate. When is it okay to take race into
account? When is it discriminatory? And as the economy reels, how and why are
the rules changing on credit? Who pays and who gets crunched? Covering the
week: Mark Mazzetti of the New York Times, Dan Balz of the Washington Post,
Joan Biskupic of USA Today, and Jeanne Cummings of Politico.

More than two decades after the Clean Water Act was supposed to make
America's waters clean enough for swimming and fishing again, two iconic
waterways - the great coastal estuaries of Puget Sound and the Chesapeake Bay
- are in perilous condition. With polluted runoff still flowing in from
industry, agriculture and massive suburban development, scientists fear
contamination to the food chain and drinking water for millions of people. A
growing list of endangered species also is threatened in both estuaries. As a
new President, Congress and states set agendas and spending priorities,
FRONTLINE correspondent Hedrick Smith examines the rising hazards to human
health and the eco-system and why it's so hard to keep our waters clean.

The most complex marine species on the planet, our counterparts in the sea,
is the orca, the ruler of the ocean. Orcas, also called killer whales, are
the most widely distributed marine mammal in the world -- their realm extends
from the Arctic to the Antarctic. They number fewer than 100,000 worldwide,
and learning more about them is a global endeavor for Jean-Michel Cousteau
and his team of explorers, who travel to both the Northern and Southern
hemispheres as they seek out killer whales in the Atlantic and Pacific
oceans. Cousteau and the team discover that people and orcas share surprising
similarities, even similar needs, and they relate their findings to the
captivity and release of Keiko, from "Free Willy" fame, who captured the
world's imagination and whose survival depended on pioneering efforts to
reintroduce Keiko into the wild. The team also learns how some of the threats
to killer whales now intersect with human lives. Intriguing detours in the
expedition arise, leading to critical examinations of our environment, of the
food on our dinner tables, even of our own health.

Each year, a small shorebird that winters on the southern tip of South
America must make a 10,000-mile journey to its nesting grounds in the Arctic
-- one of the longest migrations on earth. The pocket-sized long distance
traveler times its migration precisely to coincide with the annual spawning
of one of earth’s most ancient creatures. Horseshoe crab eggs in the Delaware
Bay fuel the little bird’s epic journey to the Arctic...but recently, bird
numbers have started to crash. The story of the red knot and the horseshoe
crab is a living example of how every species is interconnected -- each one
important, no matter how big or small.

Seventy-five percent of the world's fresh water is stored in glaciers, but
scientists predict climate change will cause some of the world's largest
glaciers to completely melt by 2030. What effect will this have on our daily
lives? With global warming falling low on a national list of American
concerns, it's time to take a deeper look at what could be a global calamity
in the making. This week, in a special one-hour NOW on PBS, David Brancaccio
and environmentalist Conrad Anker -- one of the world's leading high altitude
climbers -- trek to the Gangotri Glacier in the Himalayan Mountains, the
source of the Ganges River, to witness the great melt and its dire
consequences first-hand. The two also visit Montana's Glacier National Park
to see the striking effects of global warming closer to home and learn how
melting glaciers across the globe can have a direct impact on food prices in
the U.S. Along the way, Brancaccio and Anker talk to both scientists and
swamis, bathe in the River Ganges, view a water shortage calamity in India,
and come as close as any human can to seeing the tangible costs of climate
change. "We can't take climate change and put it on the back burner," warns
Anker. "If we don't address climate change, we won't be around as humans."

This year, hundreds of thousands of prisoners with serious mental illnesses
will be released into communities across America, the largest exodus in the
nation's history. Typically, mentally ill offenders leave prison with a bus
ticket, $75 and two weeks worth of medication. Within eighteen months, nearly
two-thirds are re-arrested. In this follow up to the groundbreaking film "The
New Asylums," FRONTLINE examines what happens to the mentally ill when they
leave prison and why they return at such alarming rates. The intimate stories
of the released-along with interviews with parole officers, social workers,
and psychiatrists provide a rare look at the lives of the mentally ill as
they struggle to stay out of prison and reintegrate into society.

In the spring of 1805, Tenskwatawa (actor Billy Merasty, Cree First Nation),
a Shawnee, fell into a trance so deep that those around him believed he had
died. When he finally stirred, the young prophet claimed to have met the
Master of Life. He told those who crowded around that the Indians were in
dire straits because they had adopted white culture and rejected traditional
spiritual ways. For several years, Tenskwatawa's spiritual revival movement



                                       51
drew thousands of adherents from tribes across the Midwest. His elder
brother, Tecumseh (actor Michael Greyeyes, Plains Cree), would harness the
energies of that renewal to create an unprecedented military and political
confederacy of often antagonistic tribes, all committed to stopping white
westward expansion. The brothers came closer than anyone since to creating an
Indian nation that would exist alongside and separate from the United States.
The dream of an independent Indian state may have died at the Battle of the
Thames, when Tecumseh was killed fighting alongside his British allies, but
the great Shawnee warrior would live on as a potent symbol of Native pride
and pan-Indian identity.

Every hot button you can imagine - torture, wiretapping, the credit crunch,
and race, all being debated at once tonight on "Washington Week." Attorney
General Eric Holder said, "I will not permit the criminalization of policy
differences. However, it is my responsibility as the attorney general to
enforce the law." Rep. Rahm Emanuel (D-IL) said, "It is not a time to use our
energy and our time in looking back, and in a sense of anger and



                                       53
retribution." As Congress and the intelligence agencies struggle with new
disclosures about the limits of interrogation, a moral, legal, and political
debate erupts. Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) said, "To tell lawyers that they're
going to be prosecuted criminally for the best advice, even if it was bad
advice, that they gave the president of the United States to my mind sets a
terrible precedent for the future." The controversy builds. At the Supreme
Court, a pivotal moment in the race debate. When is it okay to take race into
account? When is it discriminatory? And as the economy reels, how and why are
the rules changing on credit? Who pays and who gets crunched? Covering the
week: Mark Mazzetti of the New York Times, Dan Balz of the Washington Post,
Joan Biskupic of USA Today, and Jeanne Cummings of Politico.

More than two decades after the Clean Water Act was supposed to make
America's waters clean enough for swimming and fishing again, two iconic
waterways - the great coastal estuaries of Puget Sound and the Chesapeake Bay
- are in perilous condition. With polluted runoff still flowing in from
industry, agriculture and massive suburban development, scientists fear
contamination to the food chain and drinking water for millions of people. A
growing list of endangered species also is threatened in both estuaries. As a
new President, Congress and states set agendas and spending priorities,
FRONTLINE correspondent Hedrick Smith examines the rising hazards to human
health and the eco-system and why it's so hard to keep our waters clean.

How do we interrogate terrorist suspects? How do we police our border, our
banks - tonight on "Washington Week?" Simulated drowning, threats, shackles,
new details emerge on how the CIA interrogated terror suspects. Were the
tactics only technically legal and did they work? The U.S. speaks to its
southern neighbors, emphasizing that border security works both ways. Pres.
Barack Obama said, "More than 90 percent of the guns recovered in Mexico come
from the United States. We have responsibilities as well." And loosening the
embargo on Cuba. Pres. Obama said, "A relationship that effectively has been
frozen for 50 years is not going to thaw overnight." Plus this week on the
economy - banks are actually making money. What's going on? Covering the
week: Pete Williams of NBC News, Spencer Hsu of the Washington Post, Tom
Gjelten of National Public Radio, and Eamon Javers of Politico.

Every hot button you can imagine - torture, wiretapping, the credit crunch,
and race, all being debated at once tonight on "Washington Week." Attorney
General Eric Holder said, "I will not permit the criminalization of policy
differences. However, it is my responsibility as the attorney general to
enforce the law." Rep. Rahm Emanuel (D-IL) said, "It is not a time to use our
energy and our time in looking back, and in a sense of anger and
retribution." As Congress and the intelligence agencies struggle with new
disclosures about the limits of interrogation, a moral, legal, and political
debate erupts. Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) said, "To tell lawyers that they're
going to be prosecuted criminally for the best advice, even if it was bad
advice, that they gave the president of the United States to my mind sets a
terrible precedent for the future." The controversy builds. At the Supreme
Court, a pivotal moment in the race debate. When is it okay to take race into
account? When is it discriminatory? And as the economy reels, how and why are
the rules changing on credit? Who pays and who gets crunched? Covering the
week: Mark Mazzetti of the New York Times, Dan Balz of the Washington Post,
Joan Biskupic of USA Today, and Jeanne Cummings of Politico.

Seventy-five percent of the world's fresh water is stored in glaciers, but
scientists predict climate change will cause some of the world's largest
glaciers to completely melt by 2030. What effect will this have on our daily
lives? With global warming falling low on a national list of American
concerns, it's time to take a deeper look at what could be a global calamity
in the making. This week, in a special one-hour NOW on PBS, David Brancaccio
and environmentalist Conrad Anker -- one of the world's leading high altitude
climbers -- trek to the Gangotri Glacier in the Himalayan Mountains, the
source of the Ganges River, to witness the great melt and its dire
consequences first-hand. The two also visit Montana's Glacier National Park
to see the striking effects of global warming closer to home and learn how
melting glaciers across the globe can have a direct impact on food prices in
the U.S. Along the way, Brancaccio and Anker talk to both scientists and
swamis, bathe in the River Ganges, view a water shortage calamity in India,
and come as close as any human can to seeing the tangible costs of climate
change. "We can't take climate change and put it on the back burner," warns
Anker. "If we don't address climate change, we won't be around as humans."

The loneliest animals are the most endangered species on the planet.
Collected and protected by dedicated scientists, these animals represent the
end of the line for their species. In many cases, intensive captive breeding
programs have been launched with the aim of sustaining these animals and the
hope of returning them to the wild. Viewers are taken into high-security,
high-tech labs where scientists attempt to breed new generations and into the
field to discover what forces have led to the demise of entire species.
Featured animals include Yangtze turtles under 24-hour surveillance; a baby
Sumatran rhino; a special collection of lemurs; the Spix's macaw, a bird
declared extinct in the wild in 2000; and "Lonesome George," a giant tortoise
from the Galapagos, who is the last of his kind.

More than two decades after the Clean Water Act was supposed to make
America's waters clean enough for swimming and fishing again, two iconic
waterways - the great coastal estuaries of Puget Sound and the Chesapeake Bay



                                         77
- are in perilous condition. With polluted runoff still flowing in from
industry, agriculture and massive suburban development, scientists fear
contamination to the food chain and drinking water for millions of people. A
growing list of endangered species also is threatened in both estuaries. As a
new President, Congress and states set agendas and spending priorities,
FRONTLINE correspondent Hedrick Smith examines the rising hazards to human
health and the eco-system and why it's so hard to keep our waters clean.

In the spring of 1805, Tenskwatawa (actor Billy Merasty, Cree First Nation),
a Shawnee, fell into a trance so deep that those around him believed he had
died. When he finally stirred, the young prophet claimed to have met the
Master of Life. He told those who crowded around that the Indians were in
dire straits because they had adopted white culture and rejected traditional
spiritual ways. For several years, Tenskwatawa's spiritual revival movement
drew thousands of adherents from tribes across the Midwest. His elder
brother, Tecumseh (actor Michael Greyeyes, Plains Cree), would harness the
energies of that renewal to create an unprecedented military and political
confederacy of often antagonistic tribes, all committed to stopping white
westward expansion. The brothers came closer than anyone since to creating an
Indian nation that would exist alongside and separate from the United States.
The dream of an independent Indian state may have died at the Battle of the
Thames, when Tecumseh was killed fighting alongside his British allies, but
the great Shawnee warrior would live on as a potent symbol of Native pride
and pan-Indian identity.

How do we interrogate terrorist suspects? How do we police our border, our

new details emerge on how the CIA interrogated terror suspects. Were the
tactics only technically legal and did they work? The U.S. speaks to its
southern neighbors, emphasizing that border security works both ways. Pres.
Barack Obama said, "More than 90 percent of the guns recovered in Mexico come
from the United States. We have responsibilities as well." And loosening the
embargo on Cuba. Pres. Obama said, "A relationship that effectively has been
frozen for 50 years is not going to thaw overnight." Plus this week on the
economy - banks are actually making money. What's going on? Covering the
week: Pete Williams of NBC News, Spencer Hsu of the Washington Post, Tom
Gjelten of National Public Radio, and Eamon Javers of Politico.

Every hot button you can imagine - torture, wiretapping, the credit crunch,
and race, all being debated at once tonight on "Washington Week." Attorney
General Eric Holder said, "I will not permit the criminalization of policy
differences. However, it is my responsibility as the attorney general to
enforce the law." Rep. Rahm Emanuel (D-IL) said, "It is not a time to use our
energy and our time in looking back, and in a sense of anger and
retribution." As Congress and the intelligence agencies struggle with new
disclosures about the limits of interrogation, a moral, legal, and political
debate erupts. Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) said, "To tell lawyers that they're
going to be prosecuted criminally for the best advice, even if it was bad
advice, that they gave the president of the United States to my mind sets a
terrible precedent for the future." The controversy builds. At the Supreme
Court, a pivotal moment in the race debate. When is it okay to take race into
account? When is it discriminatory? And as the economy reels, how and why are
the rules changing on credit? Who pays and who gets crunched? Covering the
week: Mark Mazzetti of the New York Times, Dan Balz of the Washington Post,
Joan Biskupic of USA Today, and Jeanne Cummings of Politico.

A terrible statistic: one in six women will be a victim of rape or attempted
rape in her lifetime. But an even more shocking reality: A backlog in
processing rape kits--crucial evidence in arresting violent predators -- is
delaying and sometimes denying justice for tens of thousands of American
women. NOW travels to Los Angeles County to investigate why it has the
largest known rape kit backlog in the country -- over 12,000 kits are sitting
untested in police storage facilities. An internal audit found that more than
50 of these cases have exceeded the 10-year statute of limitations on rape.
"The evidence that we're talking about represents human lives," Los Angeles
Controller Laura Chick tells NOW. "Those are lives stacked up on the shelves
waiting for justice." NOW talks with courageous rape survivors and law
enforcement experts for insight and answers in this disturbing but important
report. Are these women being victimized twice?

As usual, a lot of things happened this week, but there was even more that
didn't happen. We'll shine a light on it all tonight on "Washington Week."
Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke said, "The financial markets are still
fragile. We don't want to take anything for granted, but we have, I think,
come a long way since last fall." This is what they mean by mixed bag. Many
banks passed the government's new stress test, but some will need to raise
more capital. The nation's jobless rate is heading up. Pres. Barack Obama
said, "It's still a sobering toll." But new unemployment claims are down. On
the foreign policy front, President Obama tries to please two essential but
unhappy allies. Behind the scenes on the domestic side, White House lawyers
assemble a Supreme Court shortlist and formulate a strategy to get that pick
confirmed. Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) said, "I think we are in danger,
particularly from the Left, of politicizing the courts." Abortion,
immigration, gay marriage, a lot of balls in the air, we're watching them
with the reporters covering the stories: Eamon Javers of Politico, Doyle
McManus of the Los Angeles Times, Joan Biskupic of USA Today, and Charles
Babington of the Associated Press.

In February of 1909, the indomitable Chiricahua Apache warrior and war shaman
Geronimo lay on his deathbed. He summoned his nephew to his side, whispering,
"I should never have surrendered. I should have fought until I was the last
man alive." It was an admission of regret from a man whose insistent pursuit
of military resistance in the face of overwhelming odds confounded not only
his Mexican and American enemies, but many of his fellow Apaches as well.
Born around 1820, Geronimo grew into a leading warrior and healer. But after
his tribe was relocated to an Arizona reservation in 1872, he became a focus
of the fury of terrified white settlers and of the growing tensions that
divided Apaches struggling to survive under almost unendurable pressures. To
angry whites, Geronimo became the archfiend, perpetrator of unspeakable
savage cruelties. To his supporters, he remained the embodiment of proud
resistance, the upholder of the old Chiricahua ways. To other Apaches,
especially those who had come to see the white man's path as the only viable
road, Geronimo was a stubborn troublemaker, unbalanced by his unquenchable
thirst for vengeance, whose actions needlessly brought the enemy's wrath down
on his own people. At a time when surrender to the reservation and acceptance
of the white man's civilization seemed to be the Indians' only realistic
options, Geronimo and his tiny band of Chiricahuas fought on. The final
holdouts, they became the last Native-American fighting force to capitulate
formally to the government of the United States.

On February 1, 2003, the space shuttle Columbia disintegrated over Texas just
16 minutes before it was due to land. All seven astronauts aboard perished
and the implications for the future of the space shuttle program were
enormous. What caused the Columbia tragedy? An engineering flaw? A failure
within NASA? A lack of financing? Could this catastrophe have been avoided?
Through interviews with astronauts and their families, as well as with
members of the Columbia Accident Investigation Board, "Space Shuttle



                                       4
Disaster" gives viewers a new look at the Columbia tragedy -- and at NASA
itself. From the creation of NASA through decades of technical and financial
compromises, the program gets to the heart of what went wrong -- and how to
make sure it never happens again.

In the summer of 1942, two ace fighter pilots -- one American and one
Japanese -- faced off during a dramatic dogfight in the skies over
Guadalcanal. Eventually the Japanese pilot shot down the American, who crash
landed behind enemy lines but managed to escape before being captured. Using
both pilots' comprehensive (but sometimes contradictory) memoirs, and
following a forensic expedition to the recently-found American plane,
"Dogfight Over Guadalcanal" examines and recreates every anxious second of
the WWII showdown over the Pacific, revealing just how evenly matched the two
men were and how they both survived, despite serious injuries.

In the mid-1960s, Bernard Madoff tapped money from Jewish businessmen at
exclusive country clubs with the promise of steady guaranteed returns on
their investments. He then set his sights on Europe and Latin America,
brokering deals with powerful hedge fund managers and feeder funds from
Buenos Aires to Geneva. Billions of dollars were channeled to Madoff's
investment firm, and his feeders became fabulously wealthy. The competition
wondered how the man could produce such steady returns in good times and bad.
There were allegations that Madoff was "front-running" or operating a Ponzi
scheme, which the SEC investigated several times over the last two decades.
But Madoff remained untouched until December 11, 2008, when he admitted it
was all "one big lie." FRONTLINE producers Martin Smith and Marcela Gaviria
unravel the story behind the world's first truly global Ponzi scheme -- a
deception that lasted longer, reached wider, and cut deeper than any other
business scandal in history.

An international health scare, a big bankruptcy, a huge party switch, and, on
the 102nd day, a Supreme Court retirement. Could it get any crazier?
Probably. We'll see tonight on "Washington Week." Pres. Barack Obama said, "I
don't want to run auto companies. I don't want to run banks. I've got two
wars I've got to run already. I've got more than enough to do." And one more
thing landed on the president's plate today, the imminent retirement of
Supreme Court Justice David Souter. Pres. Obama said, "I am incredibly
grateful for his dedicated service. I told him as much when we spoke." Let
the court wars begin. It's been a brutal week. Senior Republican Senator
Arlen Specter (R-PA) defected. He said, "I am not prepared to have my 29-year
record in the United States Senate decided by the Pennsylvania Republican
primary electorate." And America and the world cringed at the prospect of a
flu pandemic. Vice Pres. Joe Biden said, "I wouldn't go anywhere in confined
places now." U.S. Secretary of Transportation Ray LaHood said, "It is safe to
fly and there is no reason to cancel flights." The first 100 days morphs into
the second 100. Covering the week: Pete Williams of NBC News, Jeff Zeleny of
the New York Times, Alexis Simendinger of National Journal, and Spencer Hsu
of the Washington Post.

As usual, a lot of things happened this week, but there was even more that
didn't happen. We'll shine a light on it all tonight on "Washington Week."
Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke said, "The financial markets are still
fragile. We don't want to take anything for granted, but we have, I think,



                                       16
come a long way since last fall." This is what they mean by mixed bag. Many
banks passed the government's new stress test, but some will need to raise
more capital. The nation's jobless rate is heading up. Pres. Barack Obama
said, "It's still a sobering toll." But new unemployment claims are down. On
the foreign policy front, President Obama tries to please two essential but
unhappy allies. Behind the scenes on the domestic side, White House lawyers
assemble a Supreme Court shortlist and formulate a strategy to get that pick
confirmed. Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) said, "I think we are in danger,
particularly from the Left, of politicizing the courts." Abortion,
immigration, gay marriage, a lot of balls in the air, we're watching them
with the reporters covering the stories: Eamon Javers of Politico, Doyle
McManus of the Los Angeles Times, Joan Biskupic of USA Today, and Charles
Babington of the Associated Press.

How is Secretary of Education Arne Duncan going to spend $100 billion in
stimulus money -- almost twice the education budget -- to fix our nation's
schools? During his seven years running Chicago's public schools, Duncan went
head to head with the teacher's union and skeptical parents by closing down
low-performing schools, getting rid of all the teachers, principals, even the
janitors, and reopening them with new staffs as "turnaround schools." It's a
drastic step, but the results have been promising. This week, NOW travels to



                                       18
Chicago to investigate the collateral damage of a top-to-bottom school
makeover, and to get a glimpse of what the future of education might look
like for the rest of the country. "We have to be willing to experience a
little bit of pain and discomfort, but our children desperately need it and
deserve it," Secretary Duncan tells NOW. "Just as we have to do it, unions
have to change, principals have to change, teachers have to change, parents
have to step up...business as usual is not going to get us there."

In the mid-1960s, Bernard Madoff tapped money from Jewish businessmen at
exclusive country clubs with the promise of steady guaranteed returns on
their investments. He then set his sights on Europe and Latin America,
brokering deals with powerful hedge fund managers and feeder funds from
Buenos Aires to Geneva. Billions of dollars were channeled to Madoff's
investment firm, and his feeders became fabulously wealthy. The competition
wondered how the man could produce such steady returns in good times and bad.
There were allegations that Madoff was "front-running" or operating a Ponzi
scheme, which the SEC investigated several times over the last two decades.
But Madoff remained untouched until December 11, 2008, when he admitted it
was all "one big lie." FRONTLINE producers Martin Smith and Marcela Gaviria
unravel the story behind the world's first truly global Ponzi scheme -- a
deception that lasted longer, reached wider, and cut deeper than any other
business scandal in history.

An estimated half-million women are trafficked annually for the purpose of
sexual slavery. The women are kidnapped -- or lured by traffickers who prey
on their dreams of employment abroad -- then they are "exported" to Europe,
the Middle East, the United States and elsewhere, where they are sold to
pimps, drugged, terrorized, locked in brothels and raped repeatedly. In
Eastern Europe, since the fall of communism, sex trafficking has become the
fastest growing form of organized crime, with Moldova and Ukraine widely seen
as the centers of the global trade in women and girls. FRONTLINE presents a
unique hidden camera look at this world of sexual slavery, talking with
traffickers and their victims, and exposing the government indifference that
allows the abuses to continue virtually unchecked. "Sex Slaves" also follows
the remarkable journey of one man determined to find his trafficked wife by
posing as a trafficker himself to buy back her freedom.

An international health scare, a big bankruptcy, a huge party switch, and, on
the 102nd day, a Supreme Court retirement. Could it get any crazier?
Probably. We'll see tonight on "Washington Week." Pres. Barack Obama said, "I
don't want to run auto companies. I don't want to run banks. I've got two
wars I've got to run already. I've got more than enough to do." And one more
thing landed on the president's plate today, the imminent retirement of
Supreme Court Justice David Souter. Pres. Obama said, "I am incredibly
grateful for his dedicated service. I told him as much when we spoke." Let
the court wars begin. It's been a brutal week. Senior Republican Senator
Arlen Specter (R-PA) defected. He said, "I am not prepared to have my 29-year
record in the United States Senate decided by the Pennsylvania Republican
primary electorate." And America and the world cringed at the prospect of a
flu pandemic. Vice Pres. Joe Biden said, "I wouldn't go anywhere in confined
places now." U.S. Secretary of Transportation Ray LaHood said, "It is safe to
fly and there is no reason to cancel flights." The first 100 days morphs into
the second 100. Covering the week: Pete Williams of NBC News, Jeff Zeleny of
the New York Times, Alexis Simendinger of National Journal, and Spencer Hsu
of the Washington Post.

As usual, a lot of things happened this week, but there was even more that
didn't happen. We'll shine a light on it all tonight on "Washington Week."
Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke said, "The financial markets are still
fragile. We don't want to take anything for granted, but we have, I think,
come a long way since last fall." This is what they mean by mixed bag. Many
banks passed the government's new stress test, but some will need to raise
more capital. The nation's jobless rate is heading up. Pres. Barack Obama
said, "It's still a sobering toll." But new unemployment claims are down. On
the foreign policy front, President Obama tries to please two essential but
unhappy allies. Behind the scenes on the domestic side, White House lawyers
assemble a Supreme Court shortlist and formulate a strategy to get that pick
confirmed. Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) said, "I think we are in danger,
particularly from the Left, of politicizing the courts." Abortion,
immigration, gay marriage, a lot of balls in the air, we're watching them
with the reporters covering the stories: Eamon Javers of Politico, Doyle
McManus of the Los Angeles Times, Joan Biskupic of USA Today, and Charles
Babington of the Associated Press.

The week's twists and turns on health care, Social Security, torture tactics,
and Dick Cheney, we talk about it all tonight on "Washington Week," a week of
full-throated, old-fashioned Washington debate about torture -- when it was
used and who knew about it. Rep Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) said, "The CIA briefed me
only once on enhanced interrogation techniques in September, 2002. We also
now know that techniques, including waterboarding, had already been employed,
and that those briefing me in September, 2002, gave me inaccurate and
incomplete information." Rep. John Boehner (R-OH) said, "We just ought to
know, what did she know, when did she know it, and what did she do about it."
About transparency, accountability, and a secret stash of photos. Pres.
Barack Obama said, "The most direct consequence of releasing them I believe
would be to further inflame anti-American opinion and to put out troops in
greater danger." ACLU Attorney Amrit Singh said, "This decision makes a
mockery of President Obama's promise of transparency and accountability."
About an increasingly vocal former vice president - Vice Pres. Dick Cheney
said, "If I don't speak out, then where do we find ourselves, Bob? Then the
critics have free run, and there isn't anybody there on the other side to
tell the truth." Attorney General Eric Holder said, "He's a person who cares
a great deal about this country, but I think he's dead wrong." And about the
administration's number one domestic priority - health care reform. Secretary
of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius said, "It really isn't an
option to fail because the recovery of the economy depends on transforming
the health care system." Rep. Ginny Brown-Waite (R-FL) said, "The Democrats'
one-size-fits-all program just is not being accepted by the American public."
The Obama Administration discovers promises are hard to keep. We discuss why
with John Harwood of CNBC and the New York Times, John Dickerson of Slate
Magazine and CBS News, Michael Duffy of Time Magazine, and Ceci Connolly of
the Washington Post.

The ancient Maya civilization of Central America left behind an intricate and
mysterious hieroglyphic script, carved on monuments, painted on pottery, and
drawn in handmade bark-paper books. For centuries, scholars considered it too
complex ever to understand -- until recently, when an ingenious series of
breakthroughs finally cracked the code and unleashed a torrent of new
insights into the Mayas' turbulent past. For the first time, NOVA presents
the epic inside story of how the decoding was done -- traveling to the remote
jungles of southern Mexico and Central America to investigate how the code
was broken and what Maya writings now reveal.

In the mid-1960s, Bernard Madoff tapped money from Jewish businessmen at
exclusive country clubs with the promise of steady guaranteed returns on
their investments. He then set his sights on Europe and Latin America,
brokering deals with powerful hedge fund managers and feeder funds from
Buenos Aires to Geneva. Billions of dollars were channeled to Madoff's
investment firm, and his feeders became fabulously wealthy. The competition
wondered how the man could produce such steady returns in good times and bad.
There were allegations that Madoff was "front-running" or operating a Ponzi
scheme, which the SEC investigated several times over the last two decades.
But Madoff remained untouched until December 11, 2008, when he admitted it
was all "one big lie." FRONTLINE producers Martin Smith and Marcela Gaviria
unravel the story behind the world's first truly global Ponzi scheme -- a
deception that lasted longer, reached wider, and cut deeper than any other
business scandal in history.

The week's twists and turns on health care, Social Security, torture tactics,
and Dick Cheney, we talk about it all tonight on "Washington Week," a week of
full-throated, old-fashioned Washington debate about torture -- when it was
used and who knew about it. Rep Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) said, "The CIA briefed me
only once on enhanced interrogation techniques in September, 2002. We also
now know that techniques, including waterboarding, had already been employed,
and that those briefing me in September, 2002, gave me inaccurate and
incomplete information." Rep. John Boehner (R-OH) said, "We just ought to
know, what did she know, when did she know it, and what did she do about it."
About transparency, accountability, and a secret stash of photos. Pres.
Barack Obama said, "The most direct consequence of releasing them I believe
would be to further inflame anti-American opinion and to put out troops in
greater danger." ACLU Attorney Amrit Singh said, "This decision makes a
mockery of President Obama's promise of transparency and accountability."
About an increasingly vocal former vice president - Vice Pres. Dick Cheney
said, "If I don't speak out, then where do we find ourselves, Bob? Then the
critics have free run, and there isn't anybody there on the other side to
tell the truth." Attorney General Eric Holder said, "He's a person who cares
a great deal about this country, but I think he's dead wrong." And about the
administration's number one domestic priority - health care reform. Secretary
of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius said, "It really isn't an
option to fail because the recovery of the economy depends on transforming
the health care system." Rep. Ginny Brown-Waite (R-FL) said, "The Democrats'
one-size-fits-all program just is not being accepted by the American public."
The Obama Administration discovers promises are hard to keep. We discuss why
with John Harwood of CNBC and the New York Times, John Dickerson of Slate
Magazine and CBS News, Michael Duffy of Time Magazine, and Ceci Connolly of
the Washington Post.

How is Secretary of Education Arne Duncan going to spend $100 billion in
stimulus money -- almost twice the education budget -- to fix our nation's
schools? During his seven years running Chicago's public schools, Duncan went
head to head with the teacher's union and skeptical parents by closing down



                                        39
low-performing schools, getting rid of all the teachers, principals, even the
janitors, and reopening them with new staffs as "turnaround schools." It's a
drastic step, but the results have been promising. This week, NOW travels to
Chicago to investigate the collateral damage of a top-to-bottom school
makeover, and to get a glimpse of what the future of education might look
like for the rest of the country. "We have to be willing to experience a
little bit of pain and discomfort, but our children desperately need it and
deserve it," Secretary Duncan tells NOW. "Just as we have to do it, unions
have to change, principals have to change, teachers have to change, parents
have to step up...business as usual is not going to get us there."

As usual, a lot of things happened this week, but there was even more that
didn't happen. We'll shine a light on it all tonight on "Washington Week."
Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke said, "The financial markets are still
fragile. We don't want to take anything for granted, but we have, I think,
come a long way since last fall." This is what they mean by mixed bag. Many
banks passed the government's new stress test, but some will need to raise
more capital. The nation's jobless rate is heading up. Pres. Barack Obama
said, "It's still a sobering toll." But new unemployment claims are down. On
the foreign policy front, President Obama tries to please two essential but
unhappy allies. Behind the scenes on the domestic side, White House lawyers
assemble a Supreme Court shortlist and formulate a strategy to get that pick
confirmed. Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) said, "I think we are in danger,
particularly from the Left, of politicizing the courts." Abortion,
immigration, gay marriage, a lot of balls in the air, we're watching them
with the reporters covering the stories: Eamon Javers of Politico, Doyle
McManus of the Los Angeles Times, Joan Biskupic of USA Today, and Charles
Babington of the Associated Press.

A solitary loggerhead turtle in the middle of a vast ocean may not sound like
an adventure film, but stick with her. Along her 9000-mile voyage to nest,
our loggerhead tour guide in VOYAGE OF THE LONELY TURTLE encounters
hammerhead sharks, deep ocean tempests, and man-made death traps in the form
of fishing nets and hooks. Her body of well-suited armor and specialized
adaptations for deep-ocean dwelling will help the sea turtle evade many of
the ocean's menaces. But this is just one set of challenges to overcome. Here

stretch of beach in Japan, a precise location that she has been to just once
before, as a two-inch hatchling, decades ago.

Each year, a small shorebird that winters on the southern tip of South
America must make a 10,000-mile journey to its nesting grounds in the Arctic
-- one of the longest migrations on earth. The pocket-sized long distance
traveler times its migration precisely to coincide with the annual spawning
of one of earth’s most ancient creatures. Horseshoe crab eggs in the Delaware
Bay fuel the little bird’s epic journey to the Arctic...but recently, bird
numbers have started to crash. The story of the red knot and the horseshoe
crab is a living example of how every species is interconnected -- each one
important, no matter how big or small.

How is Secretary of Education Arne Duncan going to spend $100 billion in
stimulus money -- almost twice the education budget -- to fix our nation's
schools? During his seven years running Chicago's public schools, Duncan went
head to head with the teacher's union and skeptical parents by closing down
low-performing schools, getting rid of all the teachers, principals, even the
janitors, and reopening them with new staffs as "turnaround schools." It's a
drastic step, but the results have been promising. This week, NOW travels to
Chicago to investigate the collateral damage of a top-to-bottom school
makeover, and to get a glimpse of what the future of education might look
like for the rest of the country. "We have to be willing to experience a
little bit of pain and discomfort, but our children desperately need it and
deserve it," Secretary Duncan tells NOW. "Just as we have to do it, unions
have to change, principals have to change, teachers have to change, parents
have to step up...business as usual is not going to get us there."

This week, NOW's David Brancaccio sits down with one of the most prominent
figures in world health to discuss the future of the swine flu pandemic. Dr.
Larry Brilliant is an epidemiologist, former Chief Philanthropist at
Google.org, and was a central figure in the World Health Organization's
successful smallpox eradication program. Brilliant sheds light on high-tech
tools that are making it easier for scientists to detect global outbreaks,
the critical importance of early detection and early response, and how the
current pandemic has yet to show its real hand. "Anyone who tells you that
they know that this is a mild pandemic, and the WHO has overreacted, they
don't know. Anyone who tells you that the WHO and CDC (Centers for Disease
Control and Prevention) have underestimated it, they don't know," Brilliant
tells NOW. "We're all going to find out at the same time...we're all in it
together." The show also features vital insight from Dr. Nathan Wolfe, a
Stanford University epidemiologist who specializes in hunting viruses to
their source.

An international health scare, a big bankruptcy, a huge party switch, and, on
the 102nd day, a Supreme Court retirement. Could it get any crazier?
Probably. We'll see tonight on "Washington Week." Pres. Barack Obama said, "I
don't want to run auto companies. I don't want to run banks. I've got two
wars I've got to run already. I've got more than enough to do." And one more
thing landed on the president's plate today, the imminent retirement of
Supreme Court Justice David Souter. Pres. Obama said, "I am incredibly
grateful for his dedicated service. I told him as much when we spoke." Let
the court wars begin. It's been a brutal week. Senior Republican Senator
Arlen Specter (R-PA) defected. He said, "I am not prepared to have my 29-year
record in the United States Senate decided by the Pennsylvania Republican
primary electorate." And America and the world cringed at the prospect of a
flu pandemic. Vice Pres. Joe Biden said, "I wouldn't go anywhere in confined
places now." U.S. Secretary of Transportation Ray LaHood said, "It is safe to
fly and there is no reason to cancel flights." The first 100 days morphs into
the second 100. Covering the week: Pete Williams of NBC News, Jeff Zeleny of
the New York Times, Alexis Simendinger of National Journal, and Spencer Hsu
of the Washington Post.

The week's twists and turns on health care, Social Security, torture tactics,
and Dick Cheney, we talk about it all tonight on "Washington Week," a week of
full-throated, old-fashioned Washington debate about torture -- when it was
used and who knew about it. Rep Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) said, "The CIA briefed me
only once on enhanced interrogation techniques in September, 2002. We also
now know that techniques, including waterboarding, had already been employed,
and that those briefing me in September, 2002, gave me inaccurate and
incomplete information." Rep. John Boehner (R-OH) said, "We just ought to
know, what did she know, when did she know it, and what did she do about it."
About transparency, accountability, and a secret stash of photos. Pres.
Barack Obama said, "The most direct consequence of releasing them I believe
would be to further inflame anti-American opinion and to put out troops in
greater danger." ACLU Attorney Amrit Singh said, "This decision makes a
mockery of President Obama's promise of transparency and accountability."
About an increasingly vocal former vice president - Vice Pres. Dick Cheney
said, "If I don't speak out, then where do we find ourselves, Bob? Then the
critics have free run, and there isn't anybody there on the other side to
tell the truth." Attorney General Eric Holder said, "He's a person who cares
a great deal about this country, but I think he's dead wrong." And about the
administration's number one domestic priority - health care reform. Secretary
of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius said, "It really isn't an
option to fail because the recovery of the economy depends on transforming
the health care system." Rep. Ginny Brown-Waite (R-FL) said, "The Democrats'
one-size-fits-all program just is not being accepted by the American public."
The Obama Administration discovers promises are hard to keep. We discuss why

As usual, a lot of things happened this week, but there was even more that
didn't happen. We'll shine a light on it all tonight on "Washington Week."
Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke said, "The financial markets are still
fragile. We don't want to take anything for granted, but we have, I think,
come a long way since last fall." This is what they mean by mixed bag. Many
banks passed the government's new stress test, but some will need to raise
more capital. The nation's jobless rate is heading up. Pres. Barack Obama
said, "It's still a sobering toll." But new unemployment claims are down. On
the foreign policy front, President Obama tries to please two essential but
unhappy allies. Behind the scenes on the domestic side, White House lawyers
assemble a Supreme Court shortlist and formulate a strategy to get that pick
confirmed. Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) said, "I think we are in danger,
particularly from the Left, of politicizing the courts." Abortion,
immigration, gay marriage, a lot of balls in the air, we're watching them
with the reporters covering the stories: Eamon Javers of Politico, Doyle
McManus of the Los Angeles Times, Joan Biskupic of USA Today, and Charles
Babington of the Associated Press.

In February of 1909, the indomitable Chiricahua Apache warrior and war shaman
Geronimo lay on his deathbed. He summoned his nephew to his side, whispering,
"I should never have surrendered. I should have fought until I was the last
man alive." It was an admission of regret from a man whose insistent pursuit
of military resistance in the face of overwhelming odds confounded not only
his Mexican and American enemies, but many of his fellow Apaches as well.
Born around 1820, Geronimo grew into a leading warrior and healer. But after
his tribe was relocated to an Arizona reservation in 1872, he became a focus
of the fury of terrified white settlers and of the growing tensions that
divided Apaches struggling to survive under almost unendurable pressures. To
angry whites, Geronimo became the archfiend, perpetrator of unspeakable
savage cruelties. To his supporters, he remained the embodiment of proud
resistance, the upholder of the old Chiricahua ways. To other Apaches,
especially those who had come to see the white man's path as the only viable
road, Geronimo was a stubborn troublemaker, unbalanced by his unquenchable
thirst for vengeance, whose actions needlessly brought the enemy's wrath down
on his own people. At a time when surrender to the reservation and acceptance
of the white man's civilization seemed to be the Indians' only realistic
options, Geronimo and his tiny band of Chiricahuas fought on. The final
holdouts, they became the last Native-American fighting force to capitulate
formally to the government of the United States.

In the mid-1960s, Bernard Madoff tapped money from Jewish businessmen at
exclusive country clubs with the promise of steady guaranteed returns on
their investments. He then set his sights on Europe and Latin America,
brokering deals with powerful hedge fund managers and feeder funds from
Buenos Aires to Geneva. Billions of dollars were channeled to Madoff's
investment firm, and his feeders became fabulously wealthy. The competition
wondered how the man could produce such steady returns in good times and bad.
There were allegations that Madoff was "front-running" or operating a Ponzi
scheme, which the SEC investigated several times over the last two decades.
But Madoff remained untouched until December 11, 2008, when he admitted it
was all "one big lie." FRONTLINE producers Martin Smith and Marcela Gaviria
unravel the story behind the world's first truly global Ponzi scheme -- a



                                       61
deception that lasted longer, reached wider, and cut deeper than any other
business scandal in history.

On February 1, 2003, the space shuttle Columbia disintegrated over Texas just
16 minutes before it was due to land. All seven astronauts aboard perished
and the implications for the future of the space shuttle program were
enormous. What caused the Columbia tragedy? An engineering flaw? A failure
within NASA? A lack of financing? Could this catastrophe have been avoided?
Through interviews with astronauts and their families, as well as with
members of the Columbia Accident Investigation Board, "Space Shuttle
Disaster" gives viewers a new look at the Columbia tragedy -- and at NASA
itself. From the creation of NASA through decades of technical and financial
compromises, the program gets to the heart of what went wrong -- and how to
make sure it never happens again.

How is Secretary of Education Arne Duncan going to spend $100 billion in
stimulus money -- almost twice the education budget -- to fix our nation's
schools? During his seven years running Chicago's public schools, Duncan went
head to head with the teacher's union and skeptical parents by closing down
low-performing schools, getting rid of all the teachers, principals, even the
janitors, and reopening them with new staffs as "turnaround schools." It's a



                                       73
drastic step, but the results have been promising. This week, NOW travels to
Chicago to investigate the collateral damage of a top-to-bottom school
makeover, and to get a glimpse of what the future of education might look
like for the rest of the country. "We have to be willing to experience a
little bit of pain and discomfort, but our children desperately need it and
deserve it," Secretary Duncan tells NOW. "Just as we have to do it, unions
have to change, principals have to change, teachers have to change, parents
have to step up...business as usual is not going to get us there."

An international health scare, a big bankruptcy, a huge party switch, and, on
the 102nd day, a Supreme Court retirement. Could it get any crazier?
Probably. We'll see tonight on "Washington Week." Pres. Barack Obama said, "I
don't want to run auto companies. I don't want to run banks. I've got two
wars I've got to run already. I've got more than enough to do." And one more
thing landed on the president's plate today, the imminent retirement of
Supreme Court Justice David Souter. Pres. Obama said, "I am incredibly
grateful for his dedicated service. I told him as much when we spoke." Let
the court wars begin. It's been a brutal week. Senior Republican Senator
Arlen Specter (R-PA) defected. He said, "I am not prepared to have my 29-year
record in the United States Senate decided by the Pennsylvania Republican
primary electorate." And America and the world cringed at the prospect of a
flu pandemic. Vice Pres. Joe Biden said, "I wouldn't go anywhere in confined
places now." U.S. Secretary of Transportation Ray LaHood said, "It is safe to
fly and there is no reason to cancel flights." The first 100 days morphs into
the second 100. Covering the week: Pete Williams of NBC News, Jeff Zeleny of
the New York Times, Alexis Simendinger of National Journal, and Spencer Hsu
of the Washington Post.

As usual, a lot of things happened this week, but there was even more that
didn't happen. We'll shine a light on it all tonight on "Washington Week."
Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke said, "The financial markets are still
fragile. We don't want to take anything for granted, but we have, I think,
come a long way since last fall." This is what they mean by mixed bag. Many
banks passed the government's new stress test, but some will need to raise



                                       74
more capital. The nation's jobless rate is heading up. Pres. Barack Obama
said, "It's still a sobering toll." But new unemployment claims are down. On
the foreign policy front, President Obama tries to please two essential but
unhappy allies. Behind the scenes on the domestic side, White House lawyers
assemble a Supreme Court shortlist and formulate a strategy to get that pick
confirmed. Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) said, "I think we are in danger,
particularly from the Left, of politicizing the courts." Abortion,
immigration, gay marriage, a lot of balls in the air, we're watching them
with the reporters covering the stories: Eamon Javers of Politico, Doyle
McManus of the Los Angeles Times, Joan Biskupic of USA Today, and Charles
Babington of the Associated Press.

The week's twists and turns on health care, Social Security, torture tactics,
and Dick Cheney, we talk about it all tonight on "Washington Week," a week of
full-throated, old-fashioned Washington debate about torture -- when it was
used and who knew about it. Rep Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) said, "The CIA briefed me
only once on enhanced interrogation techniques in September, 2002. We also
now know that techniques, including waterboarding, had already been employed,
and that those briefing me in September, 2002, gave me inaccurate and
incomplete information." Rep. John Boehner (R-OH) said, "We just ought to
know, what did she know, when did she know it, and what did she do about it."
About transparency, accountability, and a secret stash of photos. Pres.
Barack Obama said, "The most direct consequence of releasing them I believe
would be to further inflame anti-American opinion and to put out troops in
greater danger." ACLU Attorney Amrit Singh said, "This decision makes a
mockery of President Obama's promise of transparency and accountability."
About an increasingly vocal former vice president - Vice Pres. Dick Cheney
said, "If I don't speak out, then where do we find ourselves, Bob? Then the
critics have free run, and there isn't anybody there on the other side to
tell the truth." Attorney General Eric Holder said, "He's a person who cares
a great deal about this country, but I think he's dead wrong." And about the
administration's number one domestic priority - health care reform. Secretary
of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius said, "It really isn't an
option to fail because the recovery of the economy depends on transforming
the health care system." Rep. Ginny Brown-Waite (R-FL) said, "The Democrats'
one-size-fits-all program just is not being accepted by the American public."
The Obama Administration discovers promises are hard to keep. We discuss why
with John Harwood of CNBC and the New York Times, John Dickerson of Slate
Magazine and CBS News, Michael Duffy of Time Magazine, and Ceci Connolly of
the Washington Post.

On February 1, 2003, the space shuttle Columbia disintegrated over Texas just
16 minutes before it was due to land. All seven astronauts aboard perished
and the implications for the future of the space shuttle program were
enormous. What caused the Columbia tragedy? An engineering flaw? A failure
within NASA? A lack of financing? Could this catastrophe have been avoided?
Through interviews with astronauts and their families, as well as with
members of the Columbia Accident Investigation Board, "Space Shuttle
Disaster" gives viewers a new look at the Columbia tragedy -- and at NASA
itself. From the creation of NASA through decades of technical and financial
compromises, the program gets to the heart of what went wrong -- and how to
make sure it never happens again.

This week, NOW's David Brancaccio sits down with one of the most prominent
figures in world health to discuss the future of the swine flu pandemic. Dr.
Larry Brilliant is an epidemiologist, former Chief Philanthropist at
Google.org, and was a central figure in the World Health Organization's
successful smallpox eradication program. Brilliant sheds light on high-tech
tools that are making it easier for scientists to detect global outbreaks,
the critical importance of early detection and early response, and how the
current pandemic has yet to show its real hand. "Anyone who tells you that
they know that this is a mild pandemic, and the WHO has overreacted, they
don't know. Anyone who tells you that the WHO and CDC (Centers for Disease
Control and Prevention) have underestimated it, they don't know," Brilliant
tells NOW. "We're all going to find out at the same time...we're all in it
together." The show also features vital insight from Dr. Nathan Wolfe, a
Stanford University epidemiologist who specializes in hunting viruses to
their source.

An estimated half-million women are trafficked annually for the purpose of
sexual slavery. The women are kidnapped -- or lured by traffickers who prey



                                        80
on their dreams of employment abroad -- then they are "exported" to Europe,
the Middle East, the United States and elsewhere, where they are sold to
pimps, drugged, terrorized, locked in brothels and raped repeatedly. In
Eastern Europe, since the fall of communism, sex trafficking has become the
fastest growing form of organized crime, with Moldova and Ukraine widely seen
as the centers of the global trade in women and girls. FRONTLINE presents a
unique hidden camera look at this world of sexual slavery, talking with
traffickers and their victims, and exposing the government indifference that
allows the abuses to continue virtually unchecked. "Sex Slaves" also follows
the remarkable journey of one man determined to find his trafficked wife by
posing as a trafficker himself to buy back her freedom.

The week's twists and turns on health care, Social Security, torture tactics,
and Dick Cheney, we talk about it all tonight on "Washington Week," a week of
full-throated, old-fashioned Washington debate about torture -- when it was
used and who knew about it. Rep Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) said, "The CIA briefed me
only once on enhanced interrogation techniques in September, 2002. We also
now know that techniques, including waterboarding, had already been employed,
and that those briefing me in September, 2002, gave me inaccurate and
incomplete information." Rep. John Boehner (R-OH) said, "We just ought to
know, what did she know, when did she know it, and what did she do about it."
About transparency, accountability, and a secret stash of photos. Pres.
Barack Obama said, "The most direct consequence of releasing them I believe
would be to further inflame anti-American opinion and to put out troops in
greater danger." ACLU Attorney Amrit Singh said, "This decision makes a
mockery of President Obama's promise of transparency and accountability."
About an increasingly vocal former vice president - Vice Pres. Dick Cheney
said, "If I don't speak out, then where do we find ourselves, Bob? Then the
critics have free run, and there isn't anybody there on the other side to
tell the truth." Attorney General Eric Holder said, "He's a person who cares
a great deal about this country, but I think he's dead wrong." And about the
administration's number one domestic priority - health care reform. Secretary
of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius said, "It really isn't an
option to fail because the recovery of the economy depends on transforming
the health care system." Rep. Ginny Brown-Waite (R-FL) said, "The Democrats'
one-size-fits-all program just is not being accepted by the American public."
The Obama Administration discovers promises are hard to keep. We discuss why
with John Harwood of CNBC and the New York Times, John Dickerson of Slate
Magazine and CBS News, Michael Duffy of Time Magazine, and Ceci Connolly of
the Washington Post.

An international health scare, a big bankruptcy, a huge party switch, and, on
the 102nd day, a Supreme Court retirement. Could it get any crazier?
Probably. We'll see tonight on "Washington Week." Pres. Barack Obama said, "I
don't want to run auto companies. I don't want to run banks. I've got two
wars I've got to run already. I've got more than enough to do." And one more
thing landed on the president's plate today, the imminent retirement of
Supreme Court Justice David Souter. Pres. Obama said, "I am incredibly
grateful for his dedicated service. I told him as much when we spoke." Let
the court wars begin. It's been a brutal week. Senior Republican Senator
Arlen Specter (R-PA) defected. He said, "I am not prepared to have my 29-year
record in the United States Senate decided by the Pennsylvania Republican
primary electorate." And America and the world cringed at the prospect of a
flu pandemic. Vice Pres. Joe Biden said, "I wouldn't go anywhere in confined
places now." U.S. Secretary of Transportation Ray LaHood said, "It is safe to
fly and there is no reason to cancel flights." The first 100 days morphs into
the second 100. Covering the week: Pete Williams of NBC News, Jeff Zeleny of
the New York Times, Alexis Simendinger of National Journal, and Spencer Hsu
of the Washington Post.

In February of 1909, the indomitable Chiricahua Apache warrior and war shaman
Geronimo lay on his deathbed. He summoned his nephew to his side, whispering,
"I should never have surrendered. I should have fought until I was the last
man alive." It was an admission of regret from a man whose insistent pursuit
of military resistance in the face of overwhelming odds confounded not only
his Mexican and American enemies, but many of his fellow Apaches as well.
Born around 1820, Geronimo grew into a leading warrior and healer. But after
his tribe was relocated to an Arizona reservation in 1872, he became a focus
of the fury of terrified white settlers and of the growing tensions that
divided Apaches struggling to survive under almost unendurable pressures. To
angry whites, Geronimo became the archfiend, perpetrator of unspeakable
savage cruelties. To his supporters, he remained the embodiment of proud
resistance, the upholder of the old Chiricahua ways. To other Apaches,
especially those who had come to see the white man's path as the only viable
road, Geronimo was a stubborn troublemaker, unbalanced by his unquenchable
thirst for vengeance, whose actions needlessly brought the enemy's wrath down
on his own people. At a time when surrender to the reservation and acceptance
of the white man's civilization seemed to be the Indians' only realistic
options, Geronimo and his tiny band of Chiricahuas fought on. The final



                                       84
holdouts, they became the last Native-American fighting force to capitulate
formally to the government of the United States.

A record 115,000 U.N. peacekeepers are now deployed in 20 countries, and
their mission is more vital than ever. But critics and insiders alike are
openly worried that the current peacekeeping model is overstretched -- and at
risk of failure. This week, NOW travels to the Democratic Republic of the
Congo to witness today's largest and most expensive peacekeeping operation.
There, 17,000 U.N. troops are tasked with protecting millions of people over
a rugged and dangerous territory the size of the Eastern United States. But
the effort is struggling -- last November, local rebels massacred civilians
less than a mile from one of the U.N. bases. How can U.N. peacekeeping be
improved so that it fulfills its promise of protection to the world? This
show is a co-production with the Bureau for International Reporting (BIR), a
non-profit video news production company.

The week's twists and turns on health care, Social Security, torture tactics,
and Dick Cheney, we talk about it all tonight on "Washington Week," a week of
full-throated, old-fashioned Washington debate about torture -- when it was
used and who knew about it. Rep Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) said, "The CIA briefed me
only once on enhanced interrogation techniques in September, 2002. We also
now know that techniques, including waterboarding, had already been employed,



                                       93
and that those briefing me in September, 2002, gave me inaccurate and
incomplete information." Rep. John Boehner (R-OH) said, "We just ought to
know, what did she know, when did she know it, and what did she do about it."
About transparency, accountability, and a secret stash of photos. Pres.
Barack Obama said, "The most direct consequence of releasing them I believe
would be to further inflame anti-American opinion and to put out troops in
greater danger." ACLU Attorney Amrit Singh said, "This decision makes a
mockery of President Obama's promise of transparency and accountability."
About an increasingly vocal former vice president - Vice Pres. Dick Cheney
said, "If I don't speak out, then where do we find ourselves, Bob? Then the
critics have free run, and there isn't anybody there on the other side to
tell the truth." Attorney General Eric Holder said, "He's a person who cares
a great deal about this country, but I think he's dead wrong." And about the
administration's number one domestic priority - health care reform. Secretary
of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius said, "It really isn't an
option to fail because the recovery of the economy depends on transforming
the health care system." Rep. Ginny Brown-Waite (R-FL) said, "The Democrats'
one-size-fits-all program just is not being accepted by the American public."
The Obama Administration discovers promises are hard to keep. We discuss why
with John Harwood of CNBC and the New York Times, John Dickerson of Slate
Magazine and CBS News, Michael Duffy of Time Magazine, and Ceci Connolly of
the Washington Post.

An estimated half-million women are trafficked annually for the purpose of
sexual slavery. The women are kidnapped -- or lured by traffickers who prey
on their dreams of employment abroad -- then they are "exported" to Europe,
the Middle East, the United States and elsewhere, where they are sold to
pimps, drugged, terrorized, locked in brothels and raped repeatedly. In
Eastern Europe, since the fall of communism, sex trafficking has become the
fastest growing form of organized crime, with Moldova and Ukraine widely seen
as the centers of the global trade in women and girls. FRONTLINE presents a
unique hidden camera look at this world of sexual slavery, talking with
traffickers and their victims, and exposing the government indifference that
allows the abuses to continue virtually unchecked. "Sex Slaves" also follows
the remarkable journey of one man determined to find his trafficked wife by
posing as a trafficker himself to buy back her freedom.

stimulus money -- almost twice the education budget -- to fix our nation's
schools? During his seven years running Chicago's public schools, Duncan went
head to head with the teacher's union and skeptical parents by closing down
low-performing schools, getting rid of all the teachers, principals, even the
janitors, and reopening them with new staffs as "turnaround schools." It's a
drastic step, but the results have been promising. This week, NOW travels to
Chicago to investigate the collateral damage of a top-to-bottom school
makeover, and to get a glimpse of what the future of education might look
like for the rest of the country. "We have to be willing to experience a
little bit of pain and discomfort, but our children desperately need it and
deserve it," Secretary Duncan tells NOW. "Just as we have to do it, unions
have to change, principals have to change, teachers have to change, parents
have to step up...business as usual is not going to get us there."

On August 25, 2008, just two months after undergoing surgery for a malignant
brain tumor, "The Lion of the Senate" and the Kennedy family's lone male
survivor -- Edward M. Kennedy -- surprised attendees with an unscheduled
speech at the Democratic National Convention in Denver, Colorado. "As I look
ahead, I am strengthened by family and friendship. So many of you have been
with me in the happiest days and the hardest days. Together we have known
success and seen setbacks, victory and defeat," Kennedy said. The Kennedy
story is unlike any other: a saga of ambition, wealth, family loyalty and
personal tragedy. From patriarch Joseph Kennedy's rise on Wall Street and
frustrations in politics, John Kennedy's march to the White House, Robert
Kennedy's near-certain presidential victory, preempted only by his tragic
death, through Edward Kennedy's withdrawal from the 1980 Presidential race
following the scandal of Chappaquiddick, the family legacy continues to
influence politics.

Mark Oliver Everett, better known as E, is the lead singer of U.S. cult band
the EELS. What most of his fans don't know is that Mark's father, Hugh
Everett III, was one of America's top quantum physicists. In 1957, Hugh
Everett came up with a revolutionary theory that predicted the existence of
parallel universes. The idea quickly seeped into popular culture, but only
recently has it been accepted by mainstream physicists. The film follows the
wry and charismatic Mark, who had been estranged from his father, as he
travels across America to learn about the father he never knew. It is only by
entering the paradoxical world of quantum mechanics that Mark can hope to
understand why he was such a stranger to his own father.

A war of words about war and security, plus the Republican dilemma and why
you don't have to cut up your credit cards yet, tonight on "Washington Week."
Pres. Barack Obama said, "The American people are not absolutist and they
don't elect us to impose a rigid ideology on our problems." Vice Pres. Dick
Cheney said, "In the fight against terrorism there is no middle ground. And
half-measures keep you half-exposed." The former vice president takes on the
current president in an unusual face off over Guantanamo, over torture. Pres.
Obama said, "Those who argued for these tactics were on the wrong side of the
debate and the wrong side of history. That's why we must leave these methods
where they belong -- in the past." Vice Pres. Cheney said, "To completely
rule out enhanced interrogation methods in the future is unwise in the
extreme. It is recklessness cloaked in righteousness and would make the
American people less safe." Are the president's critics finding their
collective voice? Chairman of the RNC Michael Steele said, "The honeymoon is
over. The honeymoon is over. We're going to challenge those policies that we
believe are wrong." But who's listening? Plus Congress moves to tighten the
screws on the credit card industry. Covering the week: David Sanger of the
New York Times, Naftali Bendavid of the Wall Street Journal, Karen Tumulty of
Time Magazine, and John Maggs of National Journal.

Host and veteran correspondent Miles O’Brien goes to three very different
American cities -- Denver, New York and Portland, and their surrounding
suburbs -- to look at each as a microcosm of the challenges and possibilities
the country faces as citizens, local and federal officials, and planners
struggle to manage a growing America with innovative transportation and
sustainable land use policies. With roads clogged and congested, gas prices
uncertain, smog and pollution creating health problems like asthma, cities
that once built infrastructure to serve only automobiles and trucks are now
looking to innovative new forms of transportation systems -- like trolleys,
light rail, pedestrian walkways and bike paths.

A war of words about war and security, plus the Republican dilemma and why
you don't have to cut up your credit cards yet, tonight on "Washington Week."
Pres. Barack Obama said, "The American people are not absolutist and they
don't elect us to impose a rigid ideology on our problems." Vice Pres. Dick
Cheney said, "In the fight against terrorism there is no middle ground. And
half-measures keep you half-exposed." The former vice president takes on the
current president in an unusual face off over Guantanamo, over torture. Pres.
Obama said, "Those who argued for these tactics were on the wrong side of the
debate and the wrong side of history. That's why we must leave these methods
where they belong -- in the past." Vice Pres. Cheney said, "To completely
rule out enhanced interrogation methods in the future is unwise in the
extreme. It is recklessness cloaked in righteousness and would make the
American people less safe." Are the president's critics finding their
collective voice? Chairman of the RNC Michael Steele said, "The honeymoon is
over. The honeymoon is over. We're going to challenge those policies that we
believe are wrong." But who's listening? Plus Congress moves to tighten the
screws on the credit card industry. Covering the week: David Sanger of the
New York Times, Naftali Bendavid of the Wall Street Journal, Karen Tumulty of
Time Magazine, and John Maggs of National Journal.

The story behind this week's Supreme Court nomination and growing nuclear
tension around the world, tonight on "Washington Week." Judge Sonia Sotomayor
said, "I am an ordinary person who has been blessed with extraordinary
opportunities and experiences. Today is one of those experiences." The moment
Sonia Sotomayor was announced as President Obama's Supreme Court pick, the
battles began. Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-UT) said, "Some of her comments are very
troubling and some of them do smack of a judge who wants to make law from the
bench." Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) said, "I think this nomination process is
going to be more a test of the Republican Party than of Judge Sotomayor." But
what would it take for a Democratically controlled Senate to turn down a
Democratic president's nominee, and a Latina with 17 years on the bench to
boot. This summer will tell the tale. A tougher challenge awaits the
president in North Korea, where the communist regime has restarted its
nuclear program and is challenging the rest of the world to do something
about it. Ambassador Susan Rice said, "If they want to continue to test and
provoke the international community, they're going to find that they will pay
a price." But what price and at what cost? We take you inside those debates
tonight with Joan Biskupic of USA Today, Peter Baker of the New York Times,
and James Kitfield of National Journal.

that once built infrastructure to serve only automobiles and trucks are now
looking to innovative new forms of transportation systems -- like trolleys,

Cutting across the Zambezi River, bridging the countries of Zambia and
Zimbabwe, Victoria Falls is the largest waterfall in the world. This awesome
force of nature divides two natural worlds -- the tranquil meandering river
above the cascade and the raging abyss of the gorge below. The upper river is
idyllic, running shallow through sandstone hills and meandering around
islands and reed-beds where elephants, lions, hippos, crocodiles, buffalo,
zebra, antelope and otters thrive. In a single vertical drop, the river
plummets twice the height of Niagara Falls into the wild waters and heavy
spray of the narrow gorge, where 35 different raptor species rear their
young, feasting on a glut of fish. Between the two worlds, the treacherous
cliffs and rocky outcrops are covered in thick, mossy rainforest, fed by the
constant mists, and home to baboons, monkeys, mongoose and parrots. It is a
place of epic proportions, with an epic story to tell.

What will jobs of the future look like? Many studying that question are
seeing green -- green jobs. And with President Obama promising to create 5
million "green-collar" jobs over the next 10 years, some are predicting that
new career paths in energy efficiency and clean power will transform the
American economy. This week, NOW on PBS talks with environmental activist Van
Jones, founder of "Green for All," an environmental group dedicated to
bringing green jobs to the disadvantaged. In March, Jones was appointed as
special advisor for Green Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation at the White House
Council on Environmental Quality. Now that he has the President's ear, will
Jones be creating a new career frontier for America?

co-produced with his longtime colleague, Dayton Duncan, who also wrote the
script, is the story of an idea as uniquely American as the Declaration of
Independence and just as radical: that the most special places in the nation
should be preserved, not for royalty or the rich, but for everyone.

On August 25, 2008, just two months after undergoing surgery for a malignant
brain tumor, "The Lion of the Senate" and the Kennedy family's lone male
survivor -- Edward M. Kennedy -- surprised attendees with an unscheduled
speech at the Democratic National Convention in Denver, Colorado. "As I look
ahead, I am strengthened by family and friendship. So many of you have been
with me in the happiest days and the hardest days. Together we have known



                                       39
success and seen setbacks, victory and defeat," Kennedy said. The Kennedy
story is unlike any other: a saga of ambition, wealth, family loyalty and
personal tragedy. From patriarch Joseph Kennedy's rise on Wall Street and
frustrations in politics, John Kennedy's march to the White House, Robert
Kennedy's near-certain presidential victory, preempted only by his tragic
death, through Edward Kennedy's withdrawal from the 1980 Presidential race
following the scandal of Chappaquiddick, the family legacy continues to
influence politics.

Mark Oliver Everett, better known as E, is the lead singer of U.S. cult band
the EELS. What most of his fans don't know is that Mark's father, Hugh
Everett III, was one of America's top quantum physicists. In 1957, Hugh
Everett came up with a revolutionary theory that predicted the existence of
parallel universes. The idea quickly seeped into popular culture, but only
recently has it been accepted by mainstream physicists. The film follows the
wry and charismatic Mark, who had been estranged from his father, as he
travels across America to learn about the father he never knew. It is only by
entering the paradoxical world of quantum mechanics that Mark can hope to
understand why he was such a stranger to his own father.

What will jobs of the future look like? Many studying that question are
seeing green -- green jobs. And with President Obama promising to create 5
million "green-collar" jobs over the next 10 years, some are predicting that
new career paths in energy efficiency and clean power will transform the
American economy. This week, NOW on PBS talks with environmental activist Van
Jones, founder of "Green for All," an environmental group dedicated to
bringing green jobs to the disadvantaged. In March, Jones was appointed as
special advisor for Green Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation at the White House
Council on Environmental Quality. Now that he has the President's ear, will
Jones be creating a new career frontier for America?

The story behind this week's Supreme Court nomination and growing nuclear
tension around the world, tonight on "Washington Week." Judge Sonia Sotomayor
said, "I am an ordinary person who has been blessed with extraordinary
opportunities and experiences. Today is one of those experiences." The moment
Sonia Sotomayor was announced as President Obama's Supreme Court pick, the
battles began. Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-UT) said, "Some of her comments are very
troubling and some of them do smack of a judge who wants to make law from the
bench." Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) said, "I think this nomination process is
going to be more a test of the Republican Party than of Judge Sotomayor." But
what would it take for a Democratically controlled Senate to turn down a
Democratic president's nominee, and a Latina with 17 years on the bench to
boot. This summer will tell the tale. A tougher challenge awaits the
president in North Korea, where the communist regime has restarted its
nuclear program and is challenging the rest of the world to do something
about it. Ambassador Susan Rice said, "If they want to continue to test and
provoke the international community, they're going to find that they will pay
a price." But what price and at what cost? We take you inside those debates
tonight with Joan Biskupic of USA Today, Peter Baker of the New York Times,
and James Kitfield of National Journal.

On August 25, 2008, just two months after undergoing surgery for a malignant
brain tumor, "The Lion of the Senate" and the Kennedy family's lone male
survivor -- Edward M. Kennedy -- surprised attendees with an unscheduled



                                       49
speech at the Democratic National Convention in Denver, Colorado. "As I look
ahead, I am strengthened by family and friendship. So many of you have been
with me in the happiest days and the hardest days. Together we have known
success and seen setbacks, victory and defeat," Kennedy said. The Kennedy
story is unlike any other: a saga of ambition, wealth, family loyalty and
personal tragedy. From patriarch Joseph Kennedy's rise on Wall Street and
frustrations in politics, John Kennedy's march to the White House, Robert
Kennedy's near-certain presidential victory, preempted only by his tragic
death, through Edward Kennedy's withdrawal from the 1980 Presidential race
following the scandal of Chappaquiddick, the family legacy continues to
influence politics.

American cities -- Denver, New York and Portland, and their surrounding
suburbs -- to look at each as a microcosm of the challenges and possibilities
the country faces as citizens, local and federal officials, and planners
struggle to manage a growing America with innovative transportation and
sustainable land use policies. With roads clogged and congested, gas prices
uncertain, smog and pollution creating health problems like asthma, cities
that once built infrastructure to serve only automobiles and trucks are now
looking to innovative new forms of transportation systems -- like trolleys,
light rail, pedestrian walkways and bike paths.

As a nervous world watches a new branch of the Taliban gain ground -- and the
United States steps up its pressure on the Pakistani government to confront
the militants' mounting threat -- FRONTLINE/WORLD reports from the front
lines of what has become, perhaps, the most volatile conflict in the world.
First, a timely rebroadcast of Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy's dangerous journey
through a country under siege -- from Pakistan's lawless tribal areas, where
the Army is battling the Taliban; to the Swat Valley, where the Taliban are
fighting to keep control; to the major cities, which the Taliban now have in
their sights. Also in this hour, correspondent David Montero investigates the
mysterious death of a journalist -- and a personal friend -- killed while
reporting from ground zero of the Army's campaign against the Taliban in the
Swat Valley. And, finally, a new dispatch from Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy on the
coming battle for hearts and minds in Pakistan's largest city.

Obama said, "Those who argued for these tactics were on the wrong side of the
debate and the wrong side of history. That's why we must leave these methods
where they belong -- in the past." Vice Pres. Cheney said, "To completely
rule out enhanced interrogation methods in the future is unwise in the
extreme. It is recklessness cloaked in righteousness and would make the
American people less safe." Are the president's critics finding their
collective voice? Chairman of the RNC Michael Steele said, "The honeymoon is

believe are wrong." But who's listening? Plus Congress moves to tighten the

The story behind this week's Supreme Court nomination and growing nuclear
tension around the world, tonight on "Washington Week." Judge Sonia Sotomayor
said, "I am an ordinary person who has been blessed with extraordinary
opportunities and experiences. Today is one of those experiences." The moment
Sonia Sotomayor was announced as President Obama's Supreme Court pick, the
battles began. Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-UT) said, "Some of her comments are very
troubling and some of them do smack of a judge who wants to make law from the
bench." Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) said, "I think this nomination process is
going to be more a test of the Republican Party than of Judge Sotomayor." But
what would it take for a Democratically controlled Senate to turn down a
Democratic president's nominee, and a Latina with 17 years on the bench to
boot. This summer will tell the tale. A tougher challenge awaits the
president in North Korea, where the communist regime has restarted its
nuclear program and is challenging the rest of the world to do something
about it. Ambassador Susan Rice said, "If they want to continue to test and
provoke the international community, they're going to find that they will pay
a price." But what price and at what cost? We take you inside those debates
tonight with Joan Biskupic of USA Today, Peter Baker of the New York Times,

Mark Oliver Everett, better known as E, is the lead singer of U.S. cult band
the EELS. What most of his fans don't know is that Mark's father, Hugh
Everett III, was one of America's top quantum physicists. In 1957, Hugh
Everett came up with a revolutionary theory that predicted the existence of

entering the paradoxical world of quantum mechanics that Mark can hope to
understand why he was such a stranger to his own father.

Given extraordinary access to the Saudi Arabian Interior Ministry and its

policing" tactics to be nice to the bad guys. In the program we see the

Saudis providing a private jumbo jet to bring inmates home from Guantanamo

against Islamic extremism in the future? Watch this NOW on PBS report for a

A war of words about war and security, plus the Republican dilemma and why
you don't have to cut up your credit cards yet, tonight on "Washington Week."
Pres. Barack Obama said, "The American people are not absolutist and they
don't elect us to impose a rigid ideology on our problems." Vice Pres. Dick
Cheney said, "In the fight against terrorism there is no middle ground. And
half-measures keep you half-exposed." The former vice president takes on the
current president in an unusual face off over Guantanamo, over torture. Pres.
Obama said, "Those who argued for these tactics were on the wrong side of the
debate and the wrong side of history. That's why we must leave these methods
where they belong -- in the past." Vice Pres. Cheney said, "To completely
rule out enhanced interrogation methods in the future is unwise in the
extreme. It is recklessness cloaked in righteousness and would make the
American people less safe." Are the president's critics finding their
collective voice? Chairman of the RNC Michael Steele said, "The honeymoon is
over. The honeymoon is over. We're going to challenge those policies that we
believe are wrong." But who's listening? Plus Congress moves to tighten the
screws on the credit card industry. Covering the week: David Sanger of the
New York Times, Naftali Bendavid of the Wall Street Journal, Karen Tumulty of
Time Magazine, and John Maggs of National Journal.

The murder of Dr. George Tiller has reignited the abortion debate, and raised
the question: should violence against medical doctors who perform abortions
be viewed and prosecuted as domestic terrorism? This week NOW Senior
Correspondent Maria Hinojosa sits down with two of the remaining handful of
doctors who publicly acknowledge performing late abortions, including Leroy
Carhart, a fellow doctor in Tiller's Wichita, Kansas clinic. Carhart
discusses his vow to carry on Tiller's mission and what it's like for him and
his family to live as "targets". The show also investigates claims that law
enforcement dropped the ball when it came to stopping Tiller's alleged
murderer, Scott Roeder. Hinojosa travels to Colorado as well to talk with
Dr. Warren Hern, another late abortion provider who says he's been living
"under siege" for decades. Dr. Hern works behind four layers of bulletproof
windows and is now under round-the-clock federal protection. NOW goes into
the eye of the abortion rights storm to see how Tiller's killing and its
ramifications are impacting doctors, free speech, and a civilized society.

At America's oldest Mardi Gras -- celebrated each year in Mobile, Alabama --
events remain segregated between white and black residents. "The Order of
Myths" looks beneath the surface of pageantry and reveals a complex story
about race relations and the ever-present racial divide that persists in
America. By Margaret Brown. A short, "Bi-Racial Hair," a satirical look at
the racial tension young African Americans of mixed ethnic backgrounds
experience, follows. Illustrating the struggles of mixed-color youth with
identity and social position, 13-year old poet Zora's resolution about
proposing a "new race" sheds light on the complexity and depth of the racist
wounds the nation still faces. The young poet performs live in front of 1,500
of her peers and adult allies at the Urban Word NYC Teen Poetry Slam.

On June 5, 1989, one day after Chinese troops expelled thousands of
demonstrators from Tiananmen Square in Beijing; a solitary, unarmed protester
stood his ground before a column of tanks advancing down the Avenue of
Eternal Peace. Captured by Western photographers watching nearby, this
extraordinary confrontation became an icon of the fight for freedom around
the world. Veteran filmmaker Antony Thomas investigates the mystery of the
tank man -- his identity, his fate, and his significance for the Chinese
leadership. The search for the tank man reveals China's startling social
compact -- its embrace of capitalism while dissent is squashed -- designed to
stifle the nationwide unrest of 1989. This policy has allowed educated elites
and entrepreneurs to profit handsomely, while the majority of Chinese still
face brutal working conditions and low wages, and all Chinese must endure
strict political and social controls. Some of these controls regulate speech
on the Internet -- and have generated criticism over the involvement of major
U.S. corporations such as Yahoo!, Cisco, Microsoft, and Google.

The president dominates the stage in the Middle East, but what did he say and
what did U.S. allies and enemies hear? We'll talk about it tonight on
"Washington Week." Pres. Barack Obama said, "Islam is not part of the problem
in combating violent extremism. It is an important part of promoting peace."
Barack Hussein Obama in the Middle East, speaking to the world's most
complicated problems, from violence to nuclear expansion, to Arab-Israeli
tension, to human and women's rights. Pres. Obama said, "The enduring faith
of over a billion people is so much bigger than the narrow hatred of a few."
Was this president in a unique position to be heard and was anyone listening?
At home, government steps in in a big way to save an iconic but troubled
industrial giant. GM CEO Fritz Henderson said, "The GM that in fact let too

makes the rounds as her supporters and detractors formulate confirmation
strategy. Sen. Patrick Leahy (D-VT) said, "I think some of the attacks made
against her have been among the most vicious I've ever seen." Sen. Lindsey
Graham (R-SC) said, "I would like the president, quite frankly, to tell me,
if I use his standard, why should I vote for Judge Sotomayor when you didn't
vote for Alito and Roberts?" Covering the week: Helene Cooper of the New York
Times, Greg Ip of The Economist, and Gebe Martinez of Politico.

The murder of Dr. George Tiller has reignited the abortion debate, and raised
the question: should violence against medical doctors who perform abortions
be viewed and prosecuted as domestic terrorism? This week NOW Senior
Correspondent Maria Hinojosa sits down with two of the remaining handful of
doctors who publicly acknowledge performing late abortions, including Leroy
Carhart, a fellow doctor in Tiller's Wichita, Kansas clinic. Carhart
discusses his vow to carry on Tiller's mission and what it's like for him and
his family to live as "targets". The show also investigates claims that law
enforcement dropped the ball when it came to stopping Tiller's alleged
murderer, Scott Roeder. Hinojosa travels to Colorado as well to talk with
Dr. Warren Hern, another late abortion provider who says he's been living
"under siege" for decades. Dr. Hern works behind four layers of bulletproof
windows and is now under round-the-clock federal protection. NOW goes into
the eye of the abortion rights storm to see how Tiller's killing and its
ramifications are impacting doctors, free speech, and a civilized society.

The president dominates the stage in the Middle East, but what did he say and
what did U.S. allies and enemies hear? We'll talk about it tonight on
"Washington Week." Pres. Barack Obama said, "Islam is not part of the problem
in combating violent extremism. It is an important part of promoting peace."
Barack Hussein Obama in the Middle East, speaking to the world's most
complicated problems, from violence to nuclear expansion, to Arab-Israeli
tension, to human and women's rights. Pres. Obama said, "The enduring faith
of over a billion people is so much bigger than the narrow hatred of a few."
Was this president in a unique position to be heard and was anyone listening?
At home, government steps in in a big way to save an iconic but troubled
industrial giant. GM CEO Fritz Henderson said, "The GM that in fact let too
many of you down is history." But with fewer name plates, dealers and
workers, what will the new GM be? And on Capitol Hill, Judge Sonia Sotomayor
makes the rounds as her supporters and detractors formulate confirmation
strategy. Sen. Patrick Leahy (D-VT) said, "I think some of the attacks made



                                       21
against her have been among the most vicious I've ever seen." Sen. Lindsey
Graham (R-SC) said, "I would like the president, quite frankly, to tell me,
if I use his standard, why should I vote for Judge Sotomayor when you didn't
vote for Alito and Roberts?" Covering the week: Helene Cooper of the New York

Could this be it, really, finally--health care reform on Washington’s front
burner. We’ll get to the bottom of it tonight on "Washington Week." Pres.
Barack Obama said, "Reform should be guided by a simple principle. We will
fix what’s broken and we will build on what works." Maybe easier said than
done. Everybody knows there’s a problem with health care. Few can agree on a
fix. Sen. Chris Dodd (D-CT) said, "This is going to be a journey that’s going
to go on for some weeks." The questions are more plentiful than the answers,
chief among them: who pays. Rep. John Boehner (R-OH) said, "If you like
going to the DMV and you think they do a great job, then you’ll love the
government run health care system that they’re proposing." On the economic
front, banks try to get out from under the government’s thumb.
Ken Lewis, CEO, Bank of America stated, "Even six months later is easy to
forget just how close to the brink our system came." But did the rescue plan
fix the underlying problems, while in politics are Republicans preparing to
stage a state House comeback. Governors racing in New Jersey and Virginia may
tell the tale. Covering the week Ceci Connolly of the Washington Post, Bara
Vaida of National Journal, Tom Gjelten of National Public Radio, and John
Harris of Politico.

difference. Find out why you'll never look at dinner the same way.

The murder of Dr. George Tiller has reignited the abortion debate, and raised
the question: should violence against medical doctors who perform abortions
be viewed and prosecuted as domestic terrorism? This week NOW Senior
Correspondent Maria Hinojosa sits down with two of the remaining handful of
doctors who publicly acknowledge performing late abortions, including Leroy
Carhart, a fellow doctor in Tiller's Wichita, Kansas clinic. Carhart
discusses his vow to carry on Tiller's mission and what it's like for him and
his family to live as "targets". The show also investigates claims that law
enforcement dropped the ball when it came to stopping Tiller's alleged
murderer, Scott Roeder. Hinojosa travels to Colorado as well to talk with
Dr. Warren Hern, another late abortion provider who says he's been living
"under siege" for decades. Dr. Hern works behind four layers of bulletproof
windows and is now under round-the-clock federal protection. NOW goes into
the eye of the abortion rights storm to see how Tiller's killing and its
ramifications are impacting doctors, free speech, and a civilized society.

Could this be it, really, finally--health care reform on Washington’s front
burner. We’ll get to the bottom of it tonight on "Washington Week." Pres.
Barack Obama said, "Reform should be guided by a simple principle. We will
fix what’s broken and we will build on what works." Maybe easier said than
done. Everybody knows there’s a problem with health care. Few can agree on a
fix. Sen. Chris Dodd (D-CT) said, "This is going to be a journey that’s going
to go on for some weeks." The questions are more plentiful than the answers,
chief among them: who pays. Rep. John Boehner (R-OH) said, "If you like
going to the DMV and you think they do a great job, then you’ll love the
government run health care system that they’re proposing." On the economic
front, banks try to get out from under the government’s thumb.



                                         34
Ken Lewis, CEO, Bank of America stated, "Even six months later is easy to
forget just how close to the brink our system came." But did the rescue plan
fix the underlying problems, while in politics are Republicans preparing to
stage a state House comeback. Governors racing in New Jersey and Virginia may
tell the tale. Covering the week Ceci Connolly of the Washington Post, Bara
Vaida of National Journal, Tom Gjelten of National Public Radio, and John
Harris of Politico.

wounds the nation still faces. The young poet performs live in front of 1,500

The president dominates the stage in the Middle East, but what did he say and
what did U.S. allies and enemies hear? We'll talk about it tonight on
"Washington Week." Pres. Barack Obama said, "Islam is not part of the problem
in combating violent extremism. It is an important part of promoting peace."
Barack Hussein Obama in the Middle East, speaking to the world's most
complicated problems, from violence to nuclear expansion, to Arab-Israeli
tension, to human and women's rights. Pres. Obama said, "The enduring faith
of over a billion people is so much bigger than the narrow hatred of a few."
Was this president in a unique position to be heard and was anyone listening?

Could this be it, really, finally--health care reform on Washington’s front
burner. We’ll get to the bottom of it tonight on "Washington Week." Pres.
Barack Obama said, "Reform should be guided by a simple principle. We will
fix what’s broken and we will build on what works." Maybe easier said than
done. Everybody knows there’s a problem with health care. Few can agree on a
fix. Sen. Chris Dodd (D-CT) said, "This is going to be a journey that’s going
to go on for some weeks." The questions are more plentiful than the answers,
chief among them: who pays. Rep. John Boehner (R-OH) said, "If you like
going to the DMV and you think they do a great job, then you’ll love the
government run health care system that they’re proposing." On the economic
front, banks try to get out from under the government’s thumb.
Ken Lewis, CEO, Bank of America stated, "Even six months later is easy to
forget just how close to the brink our system came." But did the rescue plan
fix the underlying problems, while in politics are Republicans preparing to
stage a state House comeback. Governors racing in New Jersey and Virginia may
tell the tale. Covering the week Ceci Connolly of the Washington Post, Bara
Vaida of National Journal, Tom Gjelten of National Public Radio, and John
Harris of Politico.

On June 5, 1989, one day after Chinese troops expelled thousands of
demonstrators from Tiananmen Square in Beijing; a solitary, unarmed protester
stood his ground before a column of tanks advancing down the Avenue of
Eternal Peace. Captured by Western photographers watching nearby, this
extraordinary confrontation became an icon of the fight for freedom around
the world. Veteran filmmaker Antony Thomas investigates the mystery of the
tank man -- his identity, his fate, and his significance for the Chinese
leadership. The search for the tank man reveals China's startling social
compact -- its embrace of capitalism while dissent is squashed -- designed to
stifle the nationwide unrest of 1989. This policy has allowed educated elites
and entrepreneurs to profit handsomely, while the majority of Chinese still
face brutal working conditions and low wages, and all Chinese must endure
strict political and social controls. Some of these controls regulate speech
on the Internet -- and have generated criticism over the involvement of major
U.S. corporations such as Yahoo!, Cisco, Microsoft, and Google.

Could this be it, really, finally--health care reform on Washington’s front
burner. We’ll get to the bottom of it tonight on "Washington Week." Pres.
Barack Obama said, "Reform should be guided by a simple principle. We will
fix what’s broken and we will build on what works." Maybe easier said than
done. Everybody knows there’s a problem with health care. Few can agree on a
fix. Sen. Chris Dodd (D-CT) said, "This is going to be a journey that’s going
to go on for some weeks." The questions are more plentiful than the answers,
chief among them: who pays. Rep. John Boehner (R-OH) said, "If you like
going to the DMV and you think they do a great job, then you’ll love the
government run health care system that they’re proposing." On the economic
front, banks try to get out from under the government’s thumb.
Ken Lewis, CEO, Bank of America stated, "Even six months later is easy to
forget just how close to the brink our system came." But did the rescue plan
fix the underlying problems, while in politics are Republicans preparing to
stage a state House comeback. Governors racing in New Jersey and Virginia may
tell the tale. Covering the week Ceci Connolly of the Washington Post, Bara
Vaida of National Journal, Tom Gjelten of National Public Radio, and John
Harris of Politico.

The murder of Dr. George Tiller has reignited the abortion debate, and raised
the question: should violence against medical doctors who perform abortions
be viewed and prosecuted as domestic terrorism? This week NOW Senior
Correspondent Maria Hinojosa sits down with two of the remaining handful of
doctors who publicly acknowledge performing late abortions, including Leroy
Carhart, a fellow doctor in Tiller's Wichita, Kansas clinic. Carhart
discusses his vow to carry on Tiller's mission and what it's like for him and
his family to live as "targets". The show also investigates claims that law
enforcement dropped the ball when it came to stopping Tiller's alleged
murderer, Scott Roeder. Hinojosa travels to Colorado as well to talk with
Dr. Warren Hern, another late abortion provider who says he's been living
"under siege" for decades. Dr. Hern works behind four layers of bulletproof
windows and is now under round-the-clock federal protection. NOW goes into
the eye of the abortion rights storm to see how Tiller's killing and its
ramifications are impacting doctors, free speech, and a civilized society.

The president dominates the stage in the Middle East, but what did he say and
what did U.S. allies and enemies hear? We'll talk about it tonight on
"Washington Week." Pres. Barack Obama said, "Islam is not part of the problem
in combating violent extremism. It is an important part of promoting peace."
Barack Hussein Obama in the Middle East, speaking to the world's most
complicated problems, from violence to nuclear expansion, to Arab-Israeli
tension, to human and women's rights. Pres. Obama said, "The enduring faith
of over a billion people is so much bigger than the narrow hatred of a few."
Was this president in a unique position to be heard and was anyone listening?
At home, government steps in in a big way to save an iconic but troubled
industrial giant. GM CEO Fritz Henderson said, "The GM that in fact let too
many of you down is history." But with fewer name plates, dealers and
workers, what will the new GM be? And on Capitol Hill, Judge Sonia Sotomayor
makes the rounds as her supporters and detractors formulate confirmation
strategy. Sen. Patrick Leahy (D-VT) said, "I think some of the attacks made
against her have been among the most vicious I've ever seen." Sen. Lindsey
Graham (R-SC) said, "I would like the president, quite frankly, to tell me,
if I use his standard, why should I vote for Judge Sotomayor when you didn't

PsychoPhone--A couple in Cincinnati acquired a peculiar phonograph at an
antiques auction. The machine, labeled "PsychoPhone," included four grooved
wax cylinders. The contributors think Thomas Edison invented the PsychoPhone
to record messages from the afterlife. As early as the 1870s, Edison and
other scientific minds explored psychic phenomena, believing every living
being was made of atoms that could "remember" past lives. Did Edison make a
machine to unlock the secrets of the dead? HISTORY DETECTIVES host Gwendolyn
Wright travels to the Thomas A. Edison Menlo Park museum in New Jersey to
find out. War Dog Letter--A World War II collector from Kansas City, Kansas,

Mississippi, and Fort Lee in Virginia. The military put great effort into a

Villa Watch Fob--Just before he died, a man gave his neighbors a most unusual
gift: a watch fob commemorating Francisco "Pancho" Villa's murderous raid on
the border town of Columbus, New Mexico. The man says he was a boy when the
raid occurred in 1916, and he and his parents survived by hiding under a
train car. The new owners want to know more about this watch fob. Who made
it? Did their friend indeed witness this infamous raid? HISTORY DETECTIVES'
new guest host, Eduardo Pagan, leads on an expedition that reveals an
especially wild chapter of the American West.

inclusiveness, the outsider has been a source of constant amusement. Perhaps

as "The 40 Year-Old Virgin," "Knocked Up" and "Superbad," this episode also
looks back at the bespectacled wannabe (Harold Lloyd) and the vain coward

comedy like Phyllis Diller and truly zany characters who seem to have arrived
from another planet (Jonathan Winters, Andy Kaufman, and Robin Williams), the
great social upheaval of the 60s and 70s introduced counter-culture favorites
Cheech & Chong, as well as superstar nerds like Woody Allen and "jerks" like
Steve Martin--who ultimately became so popular that the idea of the outsider
had to be re-cast.
