                        a comprehensive global media initiative on the changing
                        roles of women in war and peace.
   Filmed in conflict zones in Afghanistan, Bosnia, Colombia and Liberia, this
series couldn’t be timelier. As the recent announcement of the withdrawal of
U.S. troops from Afghanistan makes headlines around the world, Women, War
& Peace places women at the center of a dialogue about conflict and security.
   Among the women spotlighted are Afghan women’s rights activists who are
risking their lives to make sure that women have a seat at the table in peace
talks with the Taliban; the courageous Bosnian women who testified about their
rape and sexual enslavement, leading to a historic court victory; two extraordi-
nary Colombian women who are braving death threats to remain on the gold-rich
land that has sustained their community for centuries and a group of Liberian
women, led by activist Leymah Gbowee, who faced down killers and brought
peace to their country.
   As Women, War & Peace reveals, the majority of today’s conflicts are not
fought by nations and their armies, but rather by gangs, insurgent groups and
warlords armed with small arms and improvised weapons. Women have become
primary targets in these conflicts and though they are suffering unprecedented
casualties, they are simultaneously emerging as critical partners in brokering
peace and as leaders in forging new international laws governing conflict. For
five consecutive weeks, this special series focuses on the under-reported stories
of the women who are changing the rules of engagement in conflict hotspots all
over the world, reframing our understanding of modern warfare.
October 11 / I Came to Testify
   This is the moving story of how a group of 16 women who had been imprisoned
and raped by Serb-led forces in the Bosnian town of Foca broke history’s great
silence and stepped forward to take the witness stand in an international court
of law. Matt Damon narrates.

     The Mind Has Mountains
     Sunday, September 25 at 9 p.m.
     on Vegas PBS Channel 10 and 10.1
     Kevin Whately and Laurence Fox return for a fourth season of the popular detective series, set
     in the seemingly perfect academic haven of Oxford. In this week’s episode, a student is found
     dead during a clinical drug trial and the motives of an enigmatic professor are questioned.
     When a second death occurs, Lewis and Hathaway begin to suspect foul play, which the duo
     must uncover before another death occurs. Douglas Henshall co-stars. Then enjoy another
     episode on October 9, The Gift of Promise. During an investigation of a brutal bludgeoning, what
     seems to be a blackmail plot gone wrong turns into a case much more dark and sinister. Co-
     starring Cherie Lunghi.

                      ild South America explores the exciting, diverse and unique wildlife

                      that inhabits the dramatic landscapes of the vast South American con-

                      tinent. Using the latest camera techniques, the program reveals little

                      known animals and an entirely new perspective on its varied and dra-

matic landscape. This week’s episode explores the vast Amazon basin. From its mouth pours

a fifth of all the river water on Earth and upstream 1,000 miles, the river is still seven miles

wide. This is the story of how wildlife has adapted to this watery world. Be sure to catch          Estelares Vme:

                                               Man’s Best Friend Night
                                               Wednesday, October 12 from 8 -11 p.m.
                                               on Vegas PBS Channel 10 and 10.1
                                               Part two of NATURE: Dogs that Changed the World: Dogs by Design details the explosion
                                               of the basic working dog types into the roughly 400 breeds known today. The program
                                               explores concerns about today’s competitive breeding, using sophisticated computer-
                                               generated graphics to show how it has dramatically altered the bulldog and other
                                               breeds. Repeats Sunday, October 16 at 9 a.m. At 9 p.m., NOVA: Dogs Decoded asks how
                                               can dogs, so closely related to fearsome wild wolves, behave so differently? It’s all in
                                               the genes. This special investigates new discoveries in genetics that are illuminating
                                               the origin of dogs – with revealing implications for the evolution of human culture as
                                               well. Repeats Sunday, October 16 at 10 a.m. Then at 10 p.m., Through a Dog’s Eyes
                                               explores the human-canine bond through the moving stories of service dogs and the
                                               people whose lives they change.

     What Are We Doing Here?
     Sunday, October 22 at 9 p.m.
     on Vegas PBS WorldView
     This thought-provoking documentary explores why the charity given to Africa
     over the last four decades has been largely ineffective and often harmful. The
     film tells the story of Brandon, Nicholas, Daniel and Tim Klein who travel
     across Africa in an attempt to understand one of the greatest problems of our
     time; the failure to end poverty. In the film, the Klein family travel 15,000
     miles via public transportation from Cairo to Cape Town. They cross war torn
     and famine-ridden regions where aid workers, politicians, and inspiring indi-
     viduals tell about the incredibly complex and often misunderstood issues that
     affect hundreds of millions of people across the continent. Could our good
     intentions be causing more harm than good? Have humanitarian interven-
     tions prolonged suffering? Who is actually benefiting from our good inten-
     tions? This film will change the way you look at charity in Africa forever.
