Abortion, gun violence, Gonzales and Iraq. How the world changed, this week
on "Washington Week." (Bells ringing.) Gun violence claims 32 lives at
Virginia Tech. Rep. Jim Moran (D-VA.): (From tape.) It is we, the people's
representatives, who have to stand up and do something about this so that it
doesn't have to occur again. Will it change the debate in Washington? Can it?
Attorney General Alberto Gonzales said, "I don't remember. I don't recall. I
have no recollection about that." With Republicans jumping ship. Sen. Tom
Coburn (R-OK) said, "I believe the best way to put this behind us is your
resignation." Can Alberto Gonzales survive? The Supreme Court changes course
on abortion, supporting a ban on a controversial procedure. And on Iraq, the
White House is drawn into a larger debate. President George W. Bush said, "We
should not legislate defeat in this vital war." Sen. Harry Reid (D-NV) said,
"As long as we follow the president's path in Iraq, the war is lost."
Covering the week, Jeanne Cummings of "The Politico", Pierre Thomas of ABC
News, Linda Greenhouse of "The New York Times," and Peter Baker of "The
Washington Post."

Many of America's finest writers have wrestled with the inequities that belie
the American Dream - class and money and, often, a false promise of upward
mobility. These themes are reflected through universal characters found in
Theodore Dreiser's Sister Carrie and Edith Wharton's House of Mirth; in F.
Scott Fitzgerald's The Great Gatsby and John Steinbeck's The Grapes of Wrath;
in Ann Petry's The Street, in Gish Gen's Typical American and in Saul
Bellow's Seize the Day. Passages from each book, as well as later novels that
reflect more diverse voices, are dramatized through haunting still
photography, woven together with original and archival footage to form an
evocative, intimate tapestry.

suicide mission. With its crew of 3,000, Battleship Yamato, the pride of

As the Earth heats up at a dangerous rate and fossil fuels become scarcer,
ordinary citizens and businesses are bypassing the federal government to lead
the way in exploring a clean, renewable source of power: the sun. In this
report, NOVA shines a light on how and why people across America and the
world are "going solar," using radiant energy of the sun to power homes,
businesses, and even entire communities. But can everyday people really make
a difference by using solar power? And can solar technologies, with their
high cost and logistical challenges, truly play a bigger role in powering the
future of humanity? The grand hopes, latest innovations, roiling
controversies, and practical realities of solar power all come to the fore in
this program.

Following 9/11, the U.S. government adopted some controversial new policies
to help prevent terrorism here at home, including eavesdropping on Americans'
phone calls, secret demands for records under the Patriot Act and the use of
FBI sting operations. The Bush Administration contends these tactics have
helped save American lives, but critics say they have taken a toll on our
liberties. "Security Versus Liberty: The Other War" explores this urgent
national debate by talking with both critics and advocates of the new
policies and telling the compelling real-life stories of people whose lives
have been directly affected. "The Brotherhood" investigates the Muslim
Brotherhood's dedication to the spread of a fundamental form of Islam
throughout the world -- but is it also supporting terrorists? Award-winning
Newsweek journalists Mark Hosenball and Michael Isikoff investigate a
movement that preaches peaceful co-existence while offering inspiration for
jihadi groups.

Abortion, gun violence, Gonzales and Iraq. How the world changed, this week
on "Washington Week." (Bells ringing.) Gun violence claims 32 lives at
Virginia Tech. Rep. Jim Moran (D-VA.): (From tape.) It is we, the people's
representatives, who have to stand up and do something about this so that it
doesn't have to occur again. Will it change the debate in Washington? Can it?
Attorney General Alberto Gonzales said, "I don't remember. I don't recall. I
have no recollection about that." With Republicans jumping ship. Sen. Tom
Coburn (R-OK) said, "I believe the best way to put this behind us is your
resignation." Can Alberto Gonzales survive? The Supreme Court changes course
on abortion, supporting a ban on a controversial procedure. And on Iraq, the
White House is drawn into a larger debate. President George W. Bush said, "We
should not legislate defeat in this vital war." Sen. Harry Reid (D-NV) said,
"As long as we follow the president's path in Iraq, the war is lost."
Covering the week, Jeanne Cummings of "The Politico", Pierre Thomas of ABC
News, Linda Greenhouse of "The New York Times," and Peter Baker of "The
Washington Post."

At 1,400 feet below sea level, the Dead Sea is one of the deepest places on
Earth. It contains enough toxins in a single glass of water to kill a person.
The sea was made famous in the Old Testament as the mythical location of the
cities of Sodom and Gomorrah. Now, scientists are on the trail of the truth
behind the myth of these lost cities and the fire and brimstone that
destroyed them.

Science fiction writers have come up with strange depictions of alien life,
but nothing to rival creatures with a beak like a parrot, no bones, three
hearts, blue blood, skin that can change colors and arms growing out of lips.
Scientists call them cephalopods (squid and octopus); they inhabit a world
where cannibalism is a daily practice, mating can involve amputation,
trickery is rife and size means everything - and nothing. Viewers follow a
cameraman into the abyss and share his adventures with the planet's most
cryptic and clever monsters.

We have seen them dressed in costumes and dancing at circuses, living
solitary lives at zoos or giving our children a thrill with a ride on their
back. But the largest land animals live a life that is completely foreign to
us when left to their own in the wild--one complete with battles and births,
kidnappings and camaraderie. More than fifteen years ago, Martyn Colbeck
began to document in film and photos the lives of African elephants. For the
better part of two decades, he has grown particularly close to the elephant
matriarch, Echo, and her close-knit family, who have never failed to
astonish, amuse, and inspire him.

Forget everything you thought you knew about the 2008 presidential campaign.
We'll tell you why tonight on "Washington Week." Sen. Hillary Clinton said,
"I'm proud that I have such strong financial support from across the
country." Mitt Romney (R-MA) [Former Governor] said, "It's time to have
somebody go to Washington who knows how to change things for the better."
Candidates raking in big bucks redefine the presidential campaign, the
Democrats outraise the Republicans, Romney outraises McCain, and Barack Obama
surprises just about everybody. While even with Congress out of town, the war
of words over Iraq continues. Pres. George W. Bush said, "Members of Congress
say they support the troops. Now they need to show that support in deed as
well as in words." Sen. Harry Reid (D-NV) said, "He is the president of the
United States, not king of the United States." What's really going on? And
the Supreme Court weighs in on global warming: more bad news for President
Bush?

taking his presidential ambitions on the answer. Senator John Mccain (R-AZ)

"breathtaking" example of presidential leadership in toppling Saddam Hussein.

Journalism" while describing a story where a writer for JANE'S submitted an
article for critique prior to publication to "Slashdot," after which readers
"sliced and diced the story into tiny pieces," to such degree that an editor
at the magazine later announced that the article would not be published after
all. Leonard poses the question: Will better journalism ensue if more
reporters and editors beta test their own work? Hard to say -- in the
deadline-crazed world of technology journalism, there's often hardly enough
time to get a story properly copy edited and proofed, let alone reviewed by
hundreds of frothing critics. Still, the principle is worth taking a look at.
There's an immense amount of expertise on the Net -- sites like Slashdot are
pioneering new territory as they facilitate access to that knowledge, to the
great and last benefit of all. The tremendous growth in readership of
political blogs in the last five years, such as Josh Marshall's
Talkingpointsmemo, which receives close to a million visitors a month, has
put this concept to test outside just the technology news arena. As Marshall
explains in a blog post from April 3, 2005: "It would have been impossible
for me, for instance, to have written most of what I've written on Social
Security over the last few months if I didn't have literally thousands of
people reading their local papers and letting me know what they're seeing or
reporting back from townhall meetings or giving me the heads up on things
that are about to break on the hill. That's not a replacement for journalism;
it's different. But it's potentially very powerful." Have blogs and the
Internet in general strengthened or weakened the craft of journalism?

has re-emerged this year as a major threat to Afghanistan's weak national
government. The bunker is manned by members of the small NATO force now in
charge of countering a growing insurgency there, as the United States shifts
many of its own combat troops to Iraq. In "The Other War," FRONTLINE/WORLD

campaign in Afghanistan, with exclusive access to the NATO command in
Afghanistan and provocative reporting from the front lines in the run up to a
major offensive the Taliban has promised this spring.

Four years ago on May 1, President Bush landed on the aircraft carrier USS
Lincoln wearing a flight suit and delivered a speech in front of a giant
"Mission Accomplished" banner. He was hailed by media stars as a
"breathtaking" example of presidential leadership in toppling Saddam Hussein.
Despite profound questions over the failure to locate weapons of mass
destruction and the increasing violence in Baghdad, many in the press
confirmed the White House's claim that the war was won. MSNBC's Chris
Matthews declared, "We're all neo-cons now;" NPR's Bob Edwards said, "The war
in Iraq is essentially over;" and Fortune magazine's Jeff Birnbaum said, "It
is amazing how thorough the victory in Iraq really was in the broadest
context."

Nearly four years after President Bush declared an end to combat in Iraq, the
country is still fraught with daily casualties, costly commitments, and an
ongoing debate on how to end the violence. How did it come to this? NOW’s
David Brancaccio speaks with two very different, but unforgettable men who
allege that U.S. bungling in Iraq created and fueled the deadly insurgency.
Paul Hughes, a retired Army colonel, was part of the transition team after
the U.S. invasion of Iraq. He says key decisions were made that ignored the
realities of Iraq. Omar Fekeiki was a Washington Post reporter and translator
who risked his life to help U.S. journalists. Both Hughes and Fekeiki are
featured in a new Sundance prize-winning documentary, "No End in Sight,"
which exposes what it calls "a chain of critical errors, denial, and
incompetence that has galvanized a violent quagmire." Fekeiki’s identity was
hidden in the documentary for his protection, but he chose to appear unmasked
on NOW for the first time.

Attorney General Alberto Gonzales said, "I don't remember. I don't recall. I

Coburn (R-OK) said, "I believe the best way to put this behind us is your
resignation." Can Alberto Gonzales survive? The Supreme Court changes course
on abortion, supporting a ban on a controversial procedure. And on Iraq, the
White House is drawn into a larger debate. President George W. Bush said, "We
should not legislate defeat in this vital war." Sen. Harry Reid (D-NV) said,
"As long as we follow the president's path in Iraq, the war is lost."

At the very center of Christianity, in one of the holiest cities on Earth, a
mystery as old as the Christian faith is close to being solved. An academic
couple from Oxford -- respected archaeologists both -- have within their
grasp the proof as to whether or not Jerusalem's Church of the Holy Sepulcher
houses the place where Jesus Christ was crucified and buried. After a decade
of delicate probing Martin Biddle and his wife, Birthe Kjolbye-Biddle, have
unearthed some astonishing truths about this venerable plot and gone some way
to confirming that Christ was buried here, 2,000 years ago. Today's
archaeologists use diplomacy, intelligence, traditional archaeological and
architectural techniques, and state-of-the-art equipment to unveil the truth.
The Biddles have been able to call upon a veritable arsenal of cutting edge
technology such as thermal mapping, 3D computerized models and keyhole
cameras that can inch through the slightest cracks. The equipment reveals the
remains of the earlier structures and the original rock-cut tomb hidden
within the walls of the present 19th-century "edicule" or "little house."
Marking the site of the original tomb of Christ, the edicule has, incredibly,
never been subject to any kind of archaeological study or scientific
investigation.

Back in 1999, Salon columnist Andrew Leonard coined the term, "Open-Source
Journalism" while describing a story where a writer for JANE'S submitted an
article for critique prior to publication to "Slashdot," after which readers
"sliced and diced the story into tiny pieces," to such degree that an editor
at the magazine later announced that the article would not be published after
all. Leonard poses the question: Will better journalism ensue if more
reporters and editors beta test their own work? Hard to say -- in the
deadline-crazed world of technology journalism, there's often hardly enough
time to get a story properly copy edited and proofed, let alone reviewed by
hundreds of frothing critics. Still, the principle is worth taking a look at.
There's an immense amount of expertise on the Net -- sites like Slashdot are
pioneering new territory as they facilitate access to that knowledge, to the
great and last benefit of all. The tremendous growth in readership of
political blogs in the last five years, such as Josh Marshall's
Talkingpointsmemo, which receives close to a million visitors a month, has
put this concept to test outside just the technology news arena. As Marshall
explains in a blog post from April 3, 2005: "It would have been impossible
for me, for instance, to have written most of what I've written on Social
Security over the last few months if I didn't have literally thousands of
people reading their local papers and letting me know what they're seeing or
reporting back from townhall meetings or giving me the heads up on things
that are about to break on the hill. That's not a replacement for journalism;
it's different. But it's potentially very powerful." Have blogs and the
Internet in general strengthened or weakened the craft of journalism?

future of humanity? The grand hopes, latest innovations, roiling

Secretary of defense Robert Gates said, "I think what this recognizes,

Senator Jim Webb (D-VA) said, "I think there are limits to human endurance,
and there are limits to what families can put up with." The White House in
search of a solution. Can the war in Iraq be saved? Senator John McCain is
taking his presidential ambitions on the answer. Senator John Mccain (R-AZ)
said, "For my part - for my part - I would rather lose a campaign than a
war." And Attorney General Alberto Gonzales stakes his career on the answers
he gives an angry Congress about missing White House e-mails. Senator Patrick
Leahy (D-VT) said, "They can't say they've been lost. That's like saying "the
dog ate my homework." Dana Perino [Dep White House Press Secretary] said, "I

Nearly four years after President Bush declared an end to combat in Iraq, the
country is still fraught with daily casualties, costly commitments, and an
ongoing debate on how to end the violence. How did it come to this? NOW’s
David Brancaccio speaks with two very different, but unforgettable men who
allege that U.S. bungling in Iraq created and fueled the deadly insurgency.
Paul Hughes, a retired Army colonel, was part of the transition team after
the U.S. invasion of Iraq. He says key decisions were made that ignored the
realities of Iraq. Omar Fekeiki was a Washington Post reporter and translator
who risked his life to help U.S. journalists. Both Hughes and Fekeiki are
featured in a new Sundance prize-winning documentary, "No End in Sight,"
which exposes what it calls "a chain of critical errors, denial, and
incompetence that has galvanized a violent quagmire." Fekeiki’s identity was
hidden in the documentary for his protection, but he chose to appear unmasked
on NOW for the first time.

The war debate becomes veto-bate. Democrats spar for '08, Wolfowitz waits,
and the stock market inflates, tonight on "Washington Week." Rep. Nancy
Pelosi (D-CA) [Speaker of the House] said, "The American people are calling
for accountability. I hope that the president will heed their call."
President George W. Bush said, "It is what it is and will be vetoed, and my
veto will be sustained." The debate over pulling troops out of Iraq comes to
a head. Is there any room left for compromise? Sen. Hillary Clinton (D-NY)
said, "If this president does not get us out of Iraq, when I'm president, I
will." The Democrats who want to take the president's place go to South
Carolina for their first big debate. Sen. Barack Obama (D-IL) said, "I am
proud that I opposed this was from the start." John Edwards said, "Senator
Clinton and anyone else who voted for this war has to search themselves and
decide whether they believe they voted the right way." Did anyone break out
of the pack? Paul Wolfowitz, one of the war's architects, fights to save his
job at the World Bank. And the economy sends drastically mixed signals: weak
growth but a surging stock market. What's that all about? The reporters
covering the week: Michael Viqueira of NBC News, Karen Tumulty of Time
magazine, Tom Gjelten of National Public Radio, and David Wessel of the Wall
Street Journal.

Ahmet Ertegun, a young Turk - literally - with an immigrant's passion for the
African-American music he heard in the rigidly segregated Washington, DC,
nightclubs of the 1940s, recognized that "all popular music stems from black
music, be it jazz or rock 'n' roll or rap." He exported these unique sounds
to England, where they merged with the European sensibility, and then
imported that fusion back across the ocean. "The Atlantic Sound," which
sprang from the small record label Ertegun co-founded in 1947, was a
revolutionary new genre, single-handedly influencing the future direction of
contemporary music. Ertegun wrote music, produced music, defined careers and
changed lives. "He found Ray Charles, he introduced Eric Clapton to Aretha
Franklin, he fell asleep on Mick Jagger," says Rolling Stone founder Jann
Wenner in AMERICAN MASTERS "Atlantic Records: The House That Ahmet Built."

smuggled to a New York reporter from deep within the impregnable confines of
Western Australia's Fremantle Prison. It was a letter that launched not a
thousand ships, but a single, humble American whaler that stood its watery
ground against a heavily armed British steamer for the noble cause of freedom
and independence. The whaler was the Catalpa, its captain was George Anthony
and its precious human cargo consisted of six Irish political prisoners, who
had languished and suffered at the Fremantle prison for a decade.

We have always had a deep sense of longing for the handmade. Perhaps because
each of us, in our own way, has had a craft experience. Sometimes it’s an
object passed down to us, or one that crosses our path, and connects us to
others in traditions, heritage and rituals. You’ve begun your understanding
and appreciation with our TV series. Now go further with the other elements
of this comprehensive journey. LANSCAPE - Our landscapes are our
surroundings; the land underfoot, or the world over the horizon; a state of
being or a state of mind. Physical, political, philosophical, landscape goes
beyond picture postcard panoramas. It encompasses the environments -- the
real and the ideal -- of craft artists in all mediums.

communities where knowledge is exposed.

Ahmet Ertegun, a young Turk - literally - with an immigrant's passion for the
African-American music he heard in the rigidly segregated Washington, DC,
nightclubs of the 1940s, recognized that "all popular music stems from black
music, be it jazz or rock 'n' roll or rap." He exported these unique sounds
to England, where they merged with the European sensibility, and then
imported that fusion back across the ocean. "The Atlantic Sound," which
sprang from the small record label Ertegun co-founded in 1947, was a
revolutionary new genre, single-handedly influencing the future direction of
contemporary music. Ertegun wrote music, produced music, defined careers and
changed lives. "He found Ray Charles, he introduced Eric Clapton to Aretha
Franklin, he fell asleep on Mick Jagger," says Rolling Stone founder Jann
Wenner in AMERICAN MASTERS "Atlantic Records: The House That Ahmet Built."

When veteran government auditor Bobby Maxwell learned oil giant Kerr McGee
was not paying the $10 million he says it owed in oil royalties, he prepared
an order to Kerr McGee to pay up. Making sure the government gets its money
from energy companies was Maxwell's job in the Minerals Management Service
(MMS), a division of the Department of the Interior. But Maxwell claims his
bosses at the MMS quashed that order. After filing a lawsuit under the False
Claims Act, which protects and encourages whistleblowers, Maxwell lost his
job. This week, NOW talks with Maxwell about the personal and professional
price he says he paid in pursuit of fairness, and examines an industry under
fire for keeping too much of the enormous revenue it makes for drilling on
land and waters owned by us all. Are oil and gas companies being protected--
and even feted--by the government agency charged with regulating them? "I
felt very strongly that the American taxpayers just had $10 million stolen
out of their pocket," Maxwell tells NOW Senior Correspondent Maria Hinojosa.
"And that that needed to be remedied."

On May 6, 2005, the residents of Spokane, Washington, awoke to one of the
strangest headlines in the town’s history: "West Tied to Sex Abuse in ‘70s,
Using Office to Lure Young Men". The popular, socially conservative
Republican mayor of Spokane, Jim West, had been outed by the town’s newspaper
The Spokesman-Review. The paper told the sordid story of a man with two
lives: in public, he had once sponsored legislation forbidding gays from
teaching in public schools, while in private, the paper alleged, he was
trawling for young men online, using the trappings of his office to lure them
into sexual relationships. But as bizarre as the revelations were, so too
were the newspaper’s methods. For months, a middle-aged "forensic computer
specialist" had posed as an eighteen-year-old boy online, engaging the mayor
in a relationship that became more and more intimate, ultimately exploding on
the front page of the newspaper. With unfettered access to all the principal
players, FRONTLINE explores how this story forced an all-American town to
confront its most basic feelings about homosexuality and sheds new light on
the confusing, often contradictory, experience of gay people themselves in a
place far from the main battlefields of the culture wars.

The United States is one of the only countries in the world that allows
children under 18 to be sentenced to life without parole. Human Rights Watch
and Amnesty International report that more than 2,000 inmates are currently
serving life without parole in the United States for crimes committed when
they were juveniles; in the rest of the world, there are only 12 juveniles
serving the same sentence, according to figures reported to the United
Nations' Convention on the Rights of the Child.

9/11 has indelibly altered America in ways that people are now starting to
earnestly question: not only perpetual orange alerts, barricades and body
frisks at the airport, but greater government scrutiny of people's records
and electronic surveillance of their communications. The watershed, officials
tell FRONTLINE, was the government's shift after 9/11 to a strategy of pre-
emption at home -- not just prosecuting terrorists for breaking the law, but
trying to find and stop them before they strike.

When veteran government auditor Bobby Maxwell learned oil giant Kerr McGee
was not paying the $10 million he says it owed in oil royalties, he prepared
an order to Kerr McGee to pay up. Making sure the government gets its money
from energy companies was Maxwell's job in the Minerals Management Service
(MMS), a division of the Department of the Interior. But Maxwell claims his
bosses at the MMS quashed that order. After filing a lawsuit under the False
Claims Act, which protects and encourages whistleblowers, Maxwell lost his
job. This week, NOW talks with Maxwell about the personal and professional
price he says he paid in pursuit of fairness, and examines an industry under
fire for keeping too much of the enormous revenue it makes for drilling on
land and waters owned by us all. Are oil and gas companies being protected--
and even feted--by the government agency charged with regulating them? "I
felt very strongly that the American taxpayers just had $10 million stolen
out of their pocket," Maxwell tells NOW Senior Correspondent Maria Hinojosa.
"And that that needed to be remedied."

On May 6, 2005, the residents of Spokane, Washington, awoke to one of the
strangest headlines in the town’s history: "West Tied to Sex Abuse in ‘70s,
Using Office to Lure Young Men". The popular, socially conservative
Republican mayor of Spokane, Jim West, had been outed by the town’s newspaper
The Spokesman-Review. The paper told the sordid story of a man with two
lives: in public, he had once sponsored legislation forbidding gays from
teaching in public schools, while in private, the paper alleged, he was
trawling for young men online, using the trappings of his office to lure them
into sexual relationships. But as bizarre as the revelations were, so too
were the newspaper’s methods. For months, a middle-aged "forensic computer
specialist" had posed as an eighteen-year-old boy online, engaging the mayor
in a relationship that became more and more intimate, ultimately exploding on
the front page of the newspaper. With unfettered access to all the principal
players, FRONTLINE explores how this story forced an all-American town to
confront its most basic feelings about homosexuality and sheds new light on
the confusing, often contradictory, experience of gay people themselves in a
place far from the main battlefields of the culture wars.

War rhetoric at home, war reality on the ground, war politics on the campaign
trail, and new revelations at the Department of Justice, tonight, on
"Washington Week." Rep Dave Obey (D-WI) said, "I hate disagreement. I'm going
to vote against the major portion of this agreement even though I
negotiated." Rep. John Boehner (R-OH) said, "And I think at the top of our
list is providing for the safety and security of the American people. That's
at the top of our list." Congress sends the president a bill to pay for the
war in Iraq, but with no timetables to force its end. Rep. Nancy Pelosi said,
"The American people do not think that it is necessary for us to be
refereeing a civil war in Iraq." But the majority Democrats lost this round,
how and why? And how will any of this stem the increasing violence on the
ground? Meanwhile, presidential candidates weigh in on Iraq: John Edwards
said, "The worst thing about the Global War on Terror approach is that it's
backfired." But also on immigration, Iowa, and each other. Sen. John Mccain
(R-AZ) said, "As I mentioned, maybe he can get out that varmint gun of his
and chase those Guatemalans off his lawn." Plus the other Monica. Monica
Goodling said, "I know I crossed the line." The culture of politics at
Alberto Gonzales's Justice Department. Covering these stories: Michael
Viqueira of NBC News, Linda Robinson of US News and World Report, Dan Balz of
The Washington Post, and Pierre Thomas of ABC News.

We have always had a deep sense of longing for the handmade. Perhaps because
each of us, in our own way, has had a craft experience. Sometimes it’s an
object passed down to us, or one that crosses our path, and connects us to
others in traditions, heritage and rituals. You’ve begun your understanding
and appreciation with our TV series. Now go further with the other elements
of this comprehensive journey. MEMORY - How do we recall our history? Through
words? Images? Events? The true link to our collective past -- and keeping it
alive -- is through our objects, drawing power from their influences.
Sometimes humble, sometimes extravagant, objects stay with us. They are the
ties that bind us to our past, no matter how distant that past may be.

When veteran government auditor Bobby Maxwell learned oil giant Kerr McGee
was not paying the $10 million he says it owed in oil royalties, he prepared
an order to Kerr McGee to pay up. Making sure the government gets its money
from energy companies was Maxwell's job in the Minerals Management Service
(MMS), a division of the Department of the Interior. But Maxwell claims his
bosses at the MMS quashed that order. After filing a lawsuit under the False
Claims Act, which protects and encourages whistleblowers, Maxwell lost his
job. This week, NOW talks with Maxwell about the personal and professional
price he says he paid in pursuit of fairness, and examines an industry under
fire for keeping too much of the enormous revenue it makes for drilling on
land and waters owned by us all. Are oil and gas companies being protected--
and even feted--by the government agency charged with regulating them? "I
felt very strongly that the American taxpayers just had $10 million stolen
out of their pocket," Maxwell tells NOW Senior Correspondent Maria Hinojosa.
"And that that needed to be remedied."

They saw the wind carry the deadly cloud toward the neighboring city of
Pompeii, where the hapless citizens suffered a slow and torturous death in
the poisonous detritus. It was only a matter of time before Vesuvius would
unleash its fury on Herculaneum, killing its citizens in an even more

Using Office to Lure Young Men". The popular, socially conservative
Republican mayor of Spokane, Jim West, had been outed by the town’s newspaper
The Spokesman-Review. The paper told the sordid story of a man with two
lives: in public, he had once sponsored legislation forbidding gays from
teaching in public schools, while in private, the paper alleged, he was
trawling for young men online, using the trappings of his office to lure them

A deal on immigration reform - maybe; a cloud over the attorney general and
the White House; and politics meets religion: past and present. I'm John
Harwood sitting in for Gwen Ifill tonight on "Washington Week." Sen. Edward
Kennedy (D-MA) said, "Politics is the art of the possible." Lawmakers and the
president trumpet a deal on immigration, but the details are trouble in
Congress and on the presidential campaign trip. Rep. Tom Tancredo said, "This
is another amnesty. No matter how much lipstick you want to put on the pig,
it is still a pig called amnesty." The president's men: one out, one in, one
left hanging after dramatic congressional testimony. James Comey said, "The
door opened and in walked Mr. Gonzales." What is the faith of the embattled
attorney general? And the passing of a controversial preacher spotlights the
mix of politics and religion. With unconventional candidates in both parties,
where will conservative Christians go in 2008? Covering these stories this
week: Jeanne Cummings of the Politico, Peter Baker of the Washington Post,
Alexis Simendinger of National Journal, and Karen Tumulty of Time Magazine.

On May 6, 2005, the residents of Spokane, Washington, awoke to one of the
strangest headlines in the town’s history: "West Tied to Sex Abuse in ‘70s,
Using Office to Lure Young Men". The popular, socially conservative
Republican mayor of Spokane, Jim West, had been outed by the town’s newspaper
The Spokesman-Review. The paper told the sordid story of a man with two
lives: in public, he had once sponsored legislation forbidding gays from
teaching in public schools, while in private, the paper alleged, he was
trawling for young men online, using the trappings of his office to lure them
into sexual relationships. But as bizarre as the revelations were, so too
were the newspaper’s methods. For months, a middle-aged "forensic computer
specialist" had posed as an eighteen-year-old boy online, engaging the mayor
in a relationship that became more and more intimate, ultimately exploding on

Ahmet Ertegun, a young Turk - literally - with an immigrant's passion for the
African-American music he heard in the rigidly segregated Washington, DC,
nightclubs of the 1940s, recognized that "all popular music stems from black
music, be it jazz or rock 'n' roll or rap." He exported these unique sounds
to England, where they merged with the European sensibility, and then
imported that fusion back across the ocean. "The Atlantic Sound," which
sprang from the small record label Ertegun co-founded in 1947, was a
revolutionary new genre, single-handedly influencing the future direction of
contemporary music. Ertegun wrote music, produced music, defined careers and
changed lives. "He found Ray Charles, he introduced Eric Clapton to Aretha
Franklin, he fell asleep on Mick Jagger," says Rolling Stone founder Jann
Wenner in AMERICAN MASTERS "Atlantic Records: The House That Ahmet Built."

Of all founding fathers, Alexander Hamilton had the least promising
beginning. He was born illegitimate on the Caribbean island of Nevis,
orphaned at age eleven and taken out of school to support himself. Hamilton
learned at an early age to take advantage of his boundless intelligence,
persuasiveness and self-discipline, and like many a young immigrant of great
talent but few resources, he made his way to New York City. There, he passed
the New York bar exam with less than a year of legal study. Gifted with
words, the precocious Hamilton was also very much a man of action. During the
Revolutionary War, he distinguished himself as a military hero and as General
George Washington’s most trusted advisor.

and electronic surveillance of their communications. The watershed, officials
tell FRONTLINE, was the government's shift after 9/11 to a strategy of pre-
emption at home -- not just prosecuting terrorists for breaking the law, but
trying to find and stop them before they strike.

The White House and the Congress at loggerheads over the war. New faces in
Europe and old issues facing the GOP, tonight on "Washington Week."
Republicans looking for the exits. Sen. Arlen Specter (R-PA), "There is a
sense here certainly about the Democrats and growing among Republicans that
there has to be some progress - significant progress to sustain it beyond
September." Can the president calm his own party long enough to win this war?
President George W. Bush, "It makes sense to have benchmarks as a part of our
discussion on how to go forward." Or will he have to use his veto pen once
again? In Europe, new faces replace an old nemesis and an old friend. Tony
Blair (From tape.), "Today I announce my decision to stand down from the
leadership of the Labor Party." Political change abroad and its effect on
U.S. policy. And on the 2008 campaign trail, Republicans battle their own
pasts, their own policies, and even the Pope. The reporters covering the

domestic agenda for a foreign policy that almost destroyed him. In a period
when U.S. and British policy and politics have never been more entwined, the
inside story of Britain's prime minister is revelatory and directly relevant

War rhetoric at home, war reality on the ground, war politics on the campaign
trail, and new revelations at the Department of Justice, tonight, on
"Washington Week." Rep Dave Obey (D-WI) said, "I hate disagreement. I'm going
to vote against the major portion of this agreement even though I
negotiated." Rep. John Boehner (R-OH) said, "And I think at the top of our
list is providing for the safety and security of the American people. That's
at the top of our list." Congress sends the president a bill to pay for the
war in Iraq, but with no timetables to force its end. Rep. Nancy Pelosi said,
"The American people do not think that it is necessary for us to be
refereeing a civil war in Iraq." But the majority Democrats lost this round,
how and why? And how will any of this stem the increasing violence on the
ground? Meanwhile, presidential candidates weigh in on Iraq: John Edwards
said, "The worst thing about the Global War on Terror approach is that it's
backfired." But also on immigration, Iowa, and each other. Sen. John Mccain
(R-AZ) said, "As I mentioned, maybe he can get out that varmint gun of his
and chase those Guatemalans off his lawn." Plus the other Monica. Monica
Goodling said, "I know I crossed the line." The culture of politics at
Alberto Gonzales's Justice Department. Covering these stories: Michael

Can the quality of healthcare in developing nations be transformed by the
same principle that makes fast food such a success here? NOW travels to Kenya
to investigate an enterprising idea: franchising not burger and donut shops,
but health services and drugs in rural Africa. American businessmen are
teaming with African entrepreneurs to spread for-profit clinics around the
country in the hopes of providing quality, affordable medical care to even
Kenya’s poorest people. But can they overcome obstacles like extreme poverty,
corruption, fraudulent services, and long distances to establish a sustained
solution to a chronic problem? "If we had as many franchise outlets
delivering health care in developing countries as Subway has sandwich shops,
we've estimated that we could serve about 120 million people a year."
Businessman Scott Hillstrom, who conceived the idea, told NOW’s David
Brancaccio.

A deal on immigration reform - maybe; a cloud over the attorney general and

Harwood sitting in for Gwen Ifill tonight on "Washington Week." Sen. Edward
Kennedy (D-MA) said, "Politics is the art of the possible." Lawmakers and the
president trumpet a deal on immigration, but the details are trouble in
Congress and on the presidential campaign trip. Rep. Tom Tancredo said, "This
is another amnesty. No matter how much lipstick you want to put on the pig,
it is still a pig called amnesty." The president's men: one out, one in, one
left hanging after dramatic congressional testimony. James Comey said, "The
door opened and in walked Mr. Gonzales." What is the faith of the embattled
attorney general? And the passing of a controversial preacher spotlights the
mix of politics and religion. With unconventional candidates in both parties,
where will conservative Christians go in 2008? Covering these stories this
week: Jeanne Cummings of the Politico, Peter Baker of the Washington Post,
Alexis Simendinger of National Journal, and Karen Tumulty of Time Magazine.

Often hailed as both the first modern scientist and the last of the ancient
magicians, Isaac Newton reduced nature's chaos to a single set of
mathematical laws. More than three centuries later, those laws still govern
the way we analyze and forecast the motions of everything from roller
coasters to comets. Besides his fundamental breakthroughs in physics, optics
and calculus, Newton poured vast energy into fruitless explorations of
alchemy and religion. With lively period re-creations of key moments in his
career and replications of his experiments in optics and alchemy, NOVA
explores how Newton became the giant upon whose shoulders all later
scientists found a place to stand.

The flaming explosion of the Hindenburg over Lakehurst, New Jersey in 1937 is
one of the most famous disasters of the 20th century. It took more than 100
years to develop what was, in its day, the fastest, most technologically
advanced and most luxurious form of transportation in the world. It took only
34 seconds to destroy it. The accident that put an end to the golden age of
airships is widely believed to have been caused by the ignition of hydrogen
gas used for lift. But Addison Bain, a retired NASA scientist, was not
satisfied with that explanation. A hydrogen specialist who believed that it
is the clean and safe fuel of the future, he set out on a personal quest of
theorizing and experimentation to prove that the Hindenburg's real flaw was
only skin deep.

hurling a boiling, churning column of gas and ash 10 miles high into the sky.
They saw the wind carry the deadly cloud toward the neighboring city of
Pompeii, where the hapless citizens suffered a slow and torturous death in
the poisonous detritus. It was only a matter of time before Vesuvius would
unleash its fury on Herculaneum, killing its citizens in an even more

The flaming explosion of the Hindenburg over Lakehurst, New Jersey in 1937 is
one of the most famous disasters of the 20th century. It took more than 100
years to develop what was, in its day, the fastest, most technologically
advanced and most luxurious form of transportation in the world. It took only
34 seconds to destroy it. The accident that put an end to the golden age of
airships is widely believed to have been caused by the ignition of hydrogen
gas used for lift. But Addison Bain, a retired NASA scientist, was not
satisfied with that explanation. A hydrogen specialist who believed that it
is the clean and safe fuel of the future, he set out on a personal quest of
theorizing and experimentation to prove that the Hindenburg's real flaw was
only skin deep.

and what are American auto manufacturers doing about it? A former auto
industry engineer and NOW correspondent Jonathan Silvers goes under the hood
of the U.S. car industry to look at what's being called a colossal failure of
American engineering. Does Detroit have a secret weapon waiting in the wings?

9/11 has indelibly altered America in ways that people are now starting to
earnestly question: not only perpetual orange alerts, barricades and body
frisks at the airport, but greater government scrutiny of people's records
and electronic surveillance of their communications. The watershed, officials
tell FRONTLINE, was the government's shift after 9/11 to a strategy of pre-
emption at home -- not just prosecuting terrorists for breaking the law, but
trying to find and stop them before they strike.

The Republican field and the fast forward political campaign, plus truth and
consequences on Iraq at the Capitol, the White House, and in a high profile
new book, tonight on "Washington Week." Mayor Rudolph Giuliani (R-NY) said,
"Those are the things that Ronald Reagan taught us: you lead from optimism,
you lead from hope, and we should never retreat in the face of terrorism."
Embracing presidents past. Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) said, "I want to thank
Mrs. Reagan for the many kindnesses extended to me and my fellow prisoners of
war many years ago when we came home." Gov. Mitt Romney (R-MA) said, "I took
the same course that Ronald Reagan and George Herbert Walker Bush and Henry
Hyde took and I said I was wrong, and changed my mind and said I'm pro-life."
Not as much affection though for the current president. What does that say
about the direction of the 2008 campaign? In Washington, a long awaited veto
becomes real. President George W. Bush said, "Setting a dateline for
withdrawal is setting a date for failure, and that would be irresponsible."
Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) said, "Now into the fifth year of a failed policy,
this administration should get a clue: it's not working." But is compromise
already afoot? And George Tenet's version of the run up to war - the

men were and how they both survived, despite serious injuries.

Amelia Earhart was the first woman to fly solo across the Atlantic, and the
first to cross the North American continent alone. Her exploits as an
aviator, her beauty and intelligence, her independence and charm made her a
national heroine. Seemingly invincible, Earhart tirelessly traveled and
lectured, a champion of aviation and equal opportunity for women. But her
cheering public didn't know the cost of her courage. The record-breaking
flights, the aerial exhibitions and races, the interviews to support her
favorite causes, the endless speeches and promotional commitments, together
with household responsibilities, health problems, and financial worries,
combined to push Earhart to the point of exhaustion. In 1937, she set out to
accomplish yet another first: to circle the earth along the equator on an
east-west flight. Friends warned that her preparations were hurried, even
careless. When her plane disappeared without a trace, the "First Lady of the
Air" was instantly transformed into an American legend.

In 1789, more than 200 female thieves, prostitutes and con-artists, rounded
up from London's most notorious prisons, were shipped off to an Australian
penal colony aboard a leaky vessel named the Lady Juliana. Once aboard, the
wily women turned their banishment into opportunity, transforming their ship
into a rowdy floating brothel. By the time they reached Botany Bay, they were
fit, healthy and some were even self-supporting. Instead of a life of
servitude, they took control and - along with their offspring - helped
guarantee a new world's future. With dramatic reconstructions, powerful
imagery and actual ship journals, this program brings to light the true story
of the Lady Juliana. Through intensive research and the use of long-hidden
historical records, the film also tracks down the women's contemporary
descendants and watches as they uncover the surprising truth about their
ancestors.

The movie "The Great Escape," starring Steve McQueen, was based on fact - on
the most daring and technically ingenious prison escape of World War II. The
location was a remote, high-security internment camp for Allied airmen. Known
as Stalag Luft III, the camp was at Sagan in present-day Poland. The escape
emerged from a stunningly ambitious plan: Allied POWs set out to dig three
tunnels more than three hundred feet long and thirty feet below ground, which
they nicknamed 'Tom,' 'Dick,' and 'Harry,' so that if the Germans discovered
one tunnel there would still be a fallback. NOVA follows a team of
archaeologists on a hunt for the single surviving tunnel, 'Dick,' that the
Germans never found. Accompanying the team was a group of three of the
original escapers, who returned to the scene of their daring escapade for the
first time in sixty years. The film shows the ingenious methods and devices
improvised by the prisoners: how they surveyed the tunnels, disguised the
entrance traps, and engineered an amazing air pump and railway system, all
from materials scavenged from the camp. But when the time for the breakout
came, the thrill of the escape would take an unexpected and tragic turn.

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.

Many Americans assume that the First Amendment prevents the mixing of
politics and religion. They would be surprised to learn that this is not what
the Founding Fathers intended when they established the nation and wrote the
Constitution and Bill of Rights. In fact, they had a radically different
interpretation of the role of religion in state and federal governments. Just
what was their view? Why was it different? Where did the "wall of separation"
metaphor come from? And how did its meaning evolve into what we consider it
today? WALL OF SEPARATION addresses these questions, with historical
storytelling and scholarly interviews on both sides of the issues. Actor Liev
Schreiber narrates.

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.

For years, the U.S. healthcare system has been assailed from all sides. At
best, it’s portrayed as a frustrating bureaucracy. At worst, it’s costing
people their very lives. In his new documentary, "Sicko," Michael Moore has
turned his eye toward our American Healthcare system, as dominated and
regulated by insurance companies, health maintenance organizations and
legislators who are too often bought off by "Big Pharmacy" and HMOs. As part
of his research, Moore asked for – and received – thousands of healthcare
nightmare stories, many of which are retold in the film. He also takes a hard
look at how our system stacks up against those of Canada, France, Great
Britain--and Cuba. NOW Host David Brancaccio sits down with the controversial
chronicler of American culture to find out what makes him tick, and why our
healthcare system ticks him off.

In the 1970's and 80's, Land Developer Gary Bradley worked to transform
Austin, Texas' pristine hill country into lucrative residential subdivisions,
making both headlines and lots of money. When local residents learned of new
plans to develop 4,000 acres over nearby Barton Creek, they rose up to stop
Bradley and his partners in their tracks. Whereas the developers had strong
connections in the Texas legislature -- and a powerful ally in eventual
Governor George W. Bush -- the city had an even stronger connection to their
unspoiled home. NOW's David Brancaccio talks with filmmaker Laura Dunn about
her documentary , "The Unforeseen," which captures the drama, passion, and
heartfelt convictions on all sides of the conflict without making easy
targets of any of them.

The number of inmates in American prisons is outpacing the system's ability
to hold them all. In one startling example, California prisons hold 70,000
more inmates than they're designed for, even though the state has built a
dozen new prisons in the last 15 years.

It started with a severed foot in a vacant lot. By the time the painstaking
FBI investigation ended, a powerful Mafia crime family was shattered, and its
once-invincible "don" faced life behind bars. With firsthand accounts from
FBI special agents, this program explores the brave new world of federal
investigation, which combines old-fashioned undercover work with cutting-edge
financial sleuthing and forensics. The latest SECRETS OF THE DEAD installment
tracks the dramatic downfall of "Big Joey" Massino, delving into the largely
unheralded FBI effort to cripple the mob. Joseph D. Pistone, who posed as
tough-talking jewel thief Donnie Brasco and whose time in the Mafia was later
made into the movie Donnie Brasco, provides insight. Tony-winner Liev
Schreiber narrates.

Immigration reform - dead or just on life support? Scooter Libby heading to
jail or toward a pardon? And Russia's Vladimir Putin: friend or wily foe?
Tonight, on "Washington Week." The immigration fight consumes the U.S.
Senate. Sen. Edward Kennedy (D-MA) said, "Every day we have - we continue
without this legislation, we have these well trained, well disciplined,
highly motivated bodyguards out there chasing people across the desert that
are landscapers." Sen. Trent Lott (R-TN) said, "Do we have the courage,
tenacity, and the ability to get anything done anymore?" Sen. Mitch McConnell
(R-KY) said, "I doubt if the prospects will get better with the passage of
time. And it dominates the Republican candidates' debate." Rudy Giuliani
said, "The problem with this immigration plan is that it has no real unifying
purpose. It's a typical Washington mess." While Democrats squabble over the
war. Sen. Hillary Clinton (D-NY) said, "This is George Bush's war. He is
responsible for this war." Policy and politics collide. Scooter Libby gets
the book thrown at him - two and a half years in jail. Will it stick? The
president abroad - President George W. Bush said, "He made some interesting
suggestions." - playing diplomatic chicken with an increasingly hostile
Russian leader, plus a shake-up at the Pentagon. Covering these stories this
week: Charles Babington of the Associated Press, James Barnes of National
Journal, Pierre Thomas of ABC News, and Michael Duffy of Time Magazine.

The Supreme Court exits stage right. Plus the president loses ground in Iraq
and immigration, but pushes back anyway, tonight on "Washington Week." The
Supreme Court ends its turn with a bang, ruling against urban desegregation
plans, rolling back campaign finance reform, rejecting a student's free
speech claims; and in a surprise today, reversing itself on a case involving
Guantanamo prisoner's rights. We assess the term. On Capitol Hill, a White
House smack-down as Republicans abandon the president on immigration and
distance themselves on Iraq. Sen. Richard Lugar (R-IN) said, "The costs and
risks of continuing down the current path outweigh the potential benefits
that might be achieved." But the White House pushes back, asserting its
executive right to ignore Senate subpoenas. Sen. Patrick Leahy (D-VT) said,
"It is stonewalling of the worst   kind, and I think the reaction is now
spreading to both parties in the   Senate." A remarkable week for all three
branches of government. Covering   the stories, Linda Greenhouse of the New
York Times, Joan Biskupic of the   USA Today, Doyle McManus of the Los Angeles
Times, and Alexis Simendinger of   National Journal.

California's Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk, where vacationers can still reach

In 1918, at the tail end of the First World War, a flu pandemic ripped
through the world with such speed and virulence that by the end of the
following year an estimated 40 million people would be dead-outstripping by
four-fold the number of victims claimed by the war. Where did this particular
flu strain come from, and what made it so deadly? "Killer Flu" will show how
85 years later, virologists and epidemiologists the world over are still
hunting down the answers to those two critical questions. Their quest has
been imbued with a sense of urgency; modern health experts are bracing
themselves for a return of the 1918 flu strain, with many suggesting a
similar pandemic will occur within the next decade. The show features the
work of American pathologist Jeffrey Taubenberger, who found lung tissue from
a 1918 flu victim that contained fragments of the undamaged 1918 virus. For
the past six years, Taubenberger has been working to map the virus's genetic
code one gene at a time in an effort to learn the secret of its killing
prowess. He has even introduced some of the old virus's genes into present-
day live virus and injected it into lung tissue to better study the way it
attacks its victims. His hope is to apply his research on the 1918 virus to
the emergence of new influenza strains.

For years, the U.S. healthcare system has been assailed from all sides. At
best, it’s portrayed as a frustrating bureaucracy. At worst, it’s costing
people their very lives. In his new documentary, "Sicko," Michael Moore has
turned his eye toward our American Healthcare system, as dominated and
regulated by insurance companies, health maintenance organizations and
legislators who are too often bought off by "Big Pharmacy" and HMOs. As part
of his research, Moore asked for – and received – thousands of healthcare
nightmare stories, many of which are retold in the film. He also takes a hard
look at how our system stacks up against those of Canada, France, Great
Britain--and Cuba. NOW Host David Brancaccio sits down with the controversial
chronicler of American culture to find out what makes him tick, and why our
healthcare system ticks him off.

Twenty-Sixth Presiding Bishop and Primate of the Episcopal Church, Bishop
Jefferts Schori became in November 2006 the first woman to lead a national
church in the 520 year history of Anglicanism. She serves as chief pastor to
the Episcopal Church's 2.4 million members in 16 countries and 10 dioceses,
as well as the American representative to the worldwide Anglican Communion, a
body of 38 provinces and 77 million worshippers. Bishop Jefferts Schori has
assumed her leadership position at a particularly tumultuous time for the
Episcopal Church, specifically due to mounting criticism from more
conservative sectors of the Anglican Communion, in parts of Africa and Asia,
regarding Episcopal stances on homosexuality, same-sex partnerships, and
other social issues. In her first national interview since being elected, she
told CNN that she does not believe homosexuality is a sin.

In the 1970's and 80's, Land Developer Gary Bradley worked to transform
Austin, Texas' pristine hill country into lucrative residential subdivisions,
making both headlines and lots of money. When local residents learned of new
plans to develop 4,000 acres over nearby Barton Creek, they rose up to stop
Bradley and his partners in their tracks. Whereas the developers had strong
connections in the Texas legislature -- and a powerful ally in eventual
Governor George W. Bush -- the city had an even stronger connection to their
unspoiled home. NOW's David Brancaccio talks with filmmaker Laura Dunn about
her documentary , "The Unforeseen," which captures the drama, passion, and
heartfelt convictions on all sides of the conflict without making easy
targets of any of them.

Immigration reform - dead or just on life support? Scooter Libby heading to
jail or toward a pardon? And Russia's Vladimir Putin: friend or wily foe?
Tonight, on "Washington Week." The immigration fight consumes the U.S.
Senate. Sen. Edward Kennedy (D-MA) said, "Every day we have - we continue
without this legislation, we have these well trained, well disciplined,
highly motivated bodyguards out there chasing people across the desert that
are landscapers." Sen. Trent Lott (R-TN) said, "Do we have the courage,
tenacity, and the ability to get anything done anymore?" Sen. Mitch McConnell
(R-KY) said, "I doubt if the prospects will get better with the passage of
time. And it dominates the Republican candidates' debate." Rudy Giuliani
said, "The problem with this immigration plan is that it has no real unifying
purpose. It's a typical Washington mess." While Democrats squabble over the
war. Sen. Hillary Clinton (D-NY) said, "This is George Bush's war. He is
responsible for this war." Policy and politics collide. Scooter Libby gets
the book thrown at him - two and a half years in jail. Will it stick? The
president abroad - President George W. Bush said, "He made some interesting
suggestions." - playing diplomatic chicken with an increasingly hostile
Russian leader, plus a shake-up at the Pentagon. Covering these stories this
week: Charles Babington of the Associated Press, James Barnes of National
Journal, Pierre Thomas of ABC News, and Michael Duffy of Time Magazine.

Fresh developments on immigration reform, Iraq, White House legal woes, and
the 2008 campaign, tonight on "Washington Week." President George W. Bush
said, "Each day our nation fails to act, the problem only grows worse."
Senator Edward Kennedy (D-MA) said, "Doing nothing is not an alternative.
It's not an alternative." The president and supporters of immigration reform
bring their plan back from the death. President Bush said, "Gracias." But
ultimately, will Congress go along? A new wave of violence reinforces old
doubts on Iraq. Senator Harry Reid (D-NV) said, "The bloodiest three months
of the war has been since the surge took place." Secretary John Negroponte
said, "We expect that fight for security will get harder over the coming
months as we engage an increasingly desperate enemy." While at the White
House, officials brace for new legal challenges. Senator Arlen Specter (R-PA)
said, "Have I lost confidence in Attorney General Gonzales? Absolutely yes."
Is the fight to remove the attorney general ending - Attorney General Alberto
Gonzales said, "I don't recall specifically" -- or just beginning? And how is
all this playing out on the 2008 campaign trail? Will Republicans have to
answer for their president? Covering the stories this week: Jeff Zeleny of
the New York Times, Martha Raddatz of ABC News, Alexis Simendinger of

The Supreme Court exits stage right. Plus the president loses ground in Iraq
and immigration, but pushes back anyway, tonight on "Washington Week." The
Supreme Court ends its turn with a bang, ruling against urban desegregation
plans, rolling back campaign finance reform, rejecting a student's free
speech claims; and in a surprise today, reversing itself on a case involving
Guantanamo prisoner's rights. We assess the term. On Capitol Hill, a White
House smack-down as Republicans abandon the president on immigration and
distance themselves on Iraq. Sen. Richard Lugar (R-IN) said, "The costs and
risks of continuing down the current path outweigh the potential benefits
that might be achieved." But the White House pushes back, asserting its
executive right to ignore Senate subpoenas. Sen. Patrick Leahy (D-VT) said,
"It is stonewalling of the worst kind, and I think the reaction is now
spreading to both parties in the Senate." A remarkable week for all three
branches of government. Covering the stories, Linda Greenhouse of the New
York Times, Joan Biskupic of the USA Today, Doyle McManus of the Los Angeles
Times, and Alexis Simendinger of National Journal.

In the aftermath of the fall of Saddam Hussein, a group of Americans led by
Ambassador L. Paul Bremer III set off to Baghdad to build a new nation and
establish democracy in the Arab Middle East. One year later, with Bremer
forced to secretly exit what some have called "the most dangerous place on
earth," the group left behind lawlessness, insurgency, economic collapse,
death, destruction - and much of their idealism. Three years later, as the
U.S. continues to look for an exit strategy, the government the Americans
helped create and the infrastructure they designed are being tested.
FRONTLINE producer Michael Kirk follows the early efforts and ideals of this
group as they tried to seize control and disband the Iraqi police, army and
Baathist government - and how they became hardened along the way to the
realities of postwar Iraq. The program is based on numerous first-person
interviews and extensive documentation from the FRONTLINE team that produced
"Rumsfeld's War," "The Torture Question" and "The Dark Side."

Many Americans assume that the First Amendment prevents the mixing of
politics and religion. They would be surprised to learn that this is not what
the Founding Fathers intended when they established the nation and wrote the
Constitution and Bill of Rights. In fact, they had a radically different
interpretation of the role of religion in state and federal governments. Just
what was their view? Why was it different? Where did the "wall of separation"
metaphor come from? And how did its meaning evolve into what we consider it
today? WALL OF SEPARATION addresses these questions, with historical
storytelling and scholarly interviews on both sides of the issues. Actor Liev
Schreiber narrates.

The substance of politics and the politics of substance on Darfur,
immigration, Iran, global warming, healthcare, and the science of getting
elected, tonight on "Washington Week." President George W. Bush said, "I made
clear that the time for promises was over and that President Bashir had to do
something to end the suffering." By the end of next year, America and other
nations will set a long-term global goal for reducing greenhouse gases. The
Bush administration sets the terms for debates that could define his legacy
at home and abroad. Secretary Of State Condoleezza Rice said, "We are
prepared to change 27 years of American policy and sit with Iran to talk
about whatever Iran would like to talk about." What do this week's
pronouncements tell us about where the nation is heading? While in the 2008
presidential campaign, the field expands. Senator Fred Thompson said, "Do you
ever wonder why when our problems seem to be getting larger that so many of
our politicians seem to be getting smaller?" Why not an actor? Senator
Thompson said, "Everybody says that." And the Democrats roll out their
healthcare plans: what they have in mind and why they're talking about it

In 2006, PITTSBURGH TRIBUNE-REVIEW reporter Carl Prine resumed his
investigations of chemical safety in the United States, this time focusing on
the nation's railroad transportation system. Prine discovered that trains
loaded with toxic and explosive chemicals pass through major metropolitan
areas with inadequate or no security, and in some areas present a target
extremely vulnerable to terrorist attack. During his investigation, Prine
visited Seattle, Tacoma, Atlanta, Pittsburgh, Las Vegas, San Francisco's Bay
Area, and parts of New Jersey. EXPOSÉ returns with Prine to Las Vegas and
other locales, where he demonstrates just how easy it is to access the rail
cars carrying potentially lethal chemicals. EXPOSÉ also speaks with Senator
Joseph R. Biden, Jr. (D-DE) who discusses the rail security bill inspired by
Prine's reporting.

brought Iraq to virtual civil war. The film recounts how the early mandate to
create the conditions for a quick exit of the American military lead to
chaos, failure, and sectarian strife. In The Endgame, producer Michael Kirk

Iraq) traces why the president decided to risk what military planners once
warned could be the worst way to fight in Iraq-door--to-door--and assesses
the likelihood of its success. Top administration figures, military

For years, the U.S. healthcare system has been assailed from all sides. At
best, it’s portrayed as a frustrating bureaucracy. At worst, it’s costing
people their very lives. In his new documentary, "Sicko," Michael Moore has
turned his eye toward our American Healthcare system, as dominated and
regulated by insurance companies, health maintenance organizations and
legislators who are too often bought off by "Big Pharmacy" and HMOs. As part
of his research, Moore asked for – and received – thousands of healthcare
nightmare stories, many of which are retold in the film. He also takes a hard
look at how our system stacks up against those of Canada, France, Great
Britain--and Cuba. NOW Host David Brancaccio sits down with the controversial
chronicler of American culture to find out what makes him tick, and why our
healthcare system ticks him off.

When New Orleans’ failing public school system got washed away with the flood
waters, the city embarked upon an ambitious and controversial overhaul with
an emphasis on charter schools. Charter schools are publicly funded but
independently managed schools that proponents hail for innovation, and
opponents argue have not yet proven themselves. NOW returns to Lafayette
Academy, a charter school where students and teachers have struggled in the
past school year with mismanagement and a lack of resources. NOW also visits
the fifth graders at KIPP Believe College Prep, part of a successful national
charter school network called the "Knowledge Is Power Program." "I think the
great thing about being a charter school in New Orleans right now is that we
have the autonomy and the power to create the school that we want to create,"
KIPP School Director Adam Meinig tells NOW’s David Brancaccio. Also on the
show, a moving "Enterprising Ideas" profile of a novel program that makes new
cars affordable for the working poor.

Twenty-Sixth Presiding Bishop and Primate of the Episcopal Church, Bishop
Jefferts Schori became in November 2006 the first woman to lead a national
church in the 520 year history of Anglicanism. She serves as chief pastor to
the Episcopal Church's 2.4 million members in 16 countries and 10 dioceses,
as well as the American representative to the worldwide Anglican Communion, a
body of 38 provinces and 77 million worshippers. Bishop Jefferts Schori has
assumed her leadership position at a particularly tumultuous time for the
Episcopal Church, specifically due to mounting criticism from more
conservative sectors of the Anglican Communion, in parts of Africa and Asia,
regarding Episcopal stances on homosexuality, same-sex partnerships, and
other social issues. In her first national interview since being elected, she
told CNN that she does not believe homosexuality is a sin.

Many Americans assume that the First Amendment prevents the mixing of
politics and religion. They would be surprised to learn that this is not what
the Founding Fathers intended when they established the nation and wrote the
Constitution and Bill of Rights. In fact, they had a radically different
interpretation of the role of religion in state and federal governments. Just
what was their view? Why was it different? Where did the "wall of separation"
metaphor come from? And how did its meaning evolve into what we consider it
today? WALL OF SEPARATION addresses these questions, with historical
storytelling and scholarly interviews on both sides of the issues. Actor Liev
Schreiber narrates.

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.

In 1918, at the tail end of the First World War, a flu pandemic ripped
through the world with such speed and virulence that by the end of the
following year an estimated 40 million people would be dead-outstripping by
four-fold the number of victims claimed by the war. Where did this particular
flu strain come from, and what made it so deadly? "Killer Flu" will show how
85 years later, virologists and epidemiologists the world over are still
hunting down the answers to those two critical questions. Their quest has
been imbued with a sense of urgency; modern health experts are bracing
themselves for a return of the 1918 flu strain, with many suggesting a
similar pandemic will occur within the next decade. The show features the
work of American pathologist Jeffrey Taubenberger, who found lung tissue from
a 1918 flu victim that contained fragments of the undamaged 1918 virus. For
the past six years, Taubenberger has been working to map the virus's genetic
code one gene at a time in an effort to learn the secret of its killing
prowess. He has even introduced some of the old virus's genes into present-
day live virus and injected it into lung tissue to better study the way it
attacks its victims. His hope is to apply his research on the 1918 virus to
the emergence of new influenza strains.

When New Orleans’ failing public school system got washed away with the flood
waters, the city embarked upon an ambitious and controversial overhaul with
an emphasis on charter schools. Charter schools are publicly funded but
independently managed schools that proponents hail for innovation, and
opponents argue have not yet proven themselves. NOW returns to Lafayette
Academy, a charter school where students and teachers have struggled in the
past school year with mismanagement and a lack of resources. NOW also visits
the fifth graders at KIPP Believe College Prep, part of a successful national
charter school network called the "Knowledge Is Power Program." "I think the
great thing about being a charter school in New Orleans right now is that we
have the autonomy and the power to create the school that we want to create,"
KIPP School Director Adam Meinig tells NOW’s David Brancaccio. Also on the
show, a moving "Enterprising Ideas" profile of a novel program that makes new
cars affordable for the working poor.

In the aftermath of the fall of Saddam Hussein, a group of Americans led by
Ambassador L. Paul Bremer III set off to Baghdad to build a new nation and
establish democracy in the Arab Middle East. One year later, with Bremer
forced to secretly exit what some have called "the most dangerous place on
earth," the group left behind lawlessness, insurgency, economic collapse,
death, destruction - and much of their idealism. Three years later, as the
U.S. continues to look for an exit strategy, the government the Americans
helped create and the infrastructure they designed are being tested.
FRONTLINE producer Michael Kirk follows the early efforts and ideals of this
group as they tried to seize control and disband the Iraqi police, army and
Baathist government - and how they became hardened along the way to the
realities of postwar Iraq. The program is based on numerous first-person
interviews and extensive documentation from the FRONTLINE team that produced
"Rumsfeld's War," "The Torture Question" and "The Dark Side."

The movie "The Great Escape," starring Steve McQueen, was based on fact - on
the most daring and technically ingenious prison escape of World War II. The
location was a remote, high-security internment camp for Allied airmen. Known
as Stalag Luft III, the camp was at Sagan in present-day Poland. The escape
emerged from a stunningly ambitious plan: Allied POWs set out to dig three
tunnels more than three hundred feet long and thirty feet below ground, which
they nicknamed 'Tom,' 'Dick,' and 'Harry,' so that if the Germans discovered
one tunnel there would still be a fallback. NOVA follows a team of
archaeologists on a hunt for the single surviving tunnel, 'Dick,' that the
Germans never found. Accompanying the team was a group of three of the
original escapers, who returned to the scene of their daring escapade for the
first time in sixty years. The film shows the ingenious methods and devices
improvised by the prisoners: how they surveyed the tunnels, disguised the
entrance traps, and engineered an amazing air pump and railway system, all
from materials scavenged from the camp. But when the time for the breakout
came, the thrill of the escape would take an unexpected and tragic turn.

In the summer of 1942, two ace fighter pilots -- one American and one

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.

Immigration reform - dead or just on life support? Scooter Libby heading to
jail or toward a pardon? And Russia's Vladimir Putin: friend or wily foe?
Tonight, on "Washington Week." The immigration fight consumes the U.S.
Senate. Sen. Edward Kennedy (D-MA) said, "Every day we have - we continue
without this legislation, we have these well trained, well disciplined,
highly motivated bodyguards out there chasing people across the desert that
are landscapers." Sen. Trent Lott (R-TN) said, "Do we have the courage,
tenacity, and the ability to get anything done anymore?" Sen. Mitch McConnell
(R-KY) said, "I doubt if the prospects will get better with the passage of
time. And it dominates the Republican candidates' debate." Rudy Giuliani
said, "The problem with this immigration plan is that it has no real unifying
purpose. It's a typical Washington mess." While Democrats squabble over the
war. Sen. Hillary Clinton (D-NY) said, "This is George Bush's war. He is
responsible for this war." Policy and politics collide. Scooter Libby gets
the book thrown at him - two and a half years in jail. Will it stick? The
president abroad - President George W. Bush said, "He made some interesting
suggestions." - playing diplomatic chicken with an increasingly hostile
Russian leader, plus a shake-up at the Pentagon. Covering these stories this

investigations of chemical safety in the United States, this time focusing on
the nation's railroad transportation system. Prine discovered that trains
loaded with toxic and explosive chemicals pass through major metropolitan

extremely vulnerable to terrorist attack. During his investigation, Prine
visited Seattle, Tacoma, Atlanta, Pittsburgh, Las Vegas, San Francisco's Bay

cars carrying potentially lethal chemicals. EXPOSÉ also speaks with Senator
Joseph R. Biden, Jr. (D-DE) who discusses the rail security bill inspired by

church in the 520 year history of Anglicanism. She serves as chief pastor to
the Episcopal Church's 2.4 million members in 16 countries and 10 dioceses,
as well as the American representative to the worldwide Anglican Communion, a
body of 38 provinces and 77 million worshippers. Bishop Jefferts Schori has
assumed her leadership position at a particularly tumultuous time for the
Episcopal Church, specifically due to mounting criticism from more
conservative sectors of the Anglican Communion, in parts of Africa and Asia,
regarding Episcopal stances on homosexuality, same-sex partnerships, and
other social issues. In her first national interview since being elected, she
told CNN that she does not believe homosexuality is a sin.

When New Orleans’ failing public school system got washed away with the flood
waters, the city embarked upon an ambitious and controversial overhaul with
an emphasis on charter schools. Charter schools are publicly funded but
independently managed schools that proponents hail for innovation, and
opponents argue have not yet proven themselves. NOW returns to Lafayette
Academy, a charter school where students and teachers have struggled in the
past school year with mismanagement and a lack of resources. NOW also visits
the fifth graders at KIPP Believe College Prep, part of a successful national
charter school network called the "Knowledge Is Power Program." "I think the
great thing about being a charter school in New Orleans right now is that we
have the autonomy and the power to create the school that we want to create,"
KIPP School Director Adam Meinig tells NOW’s David Brancaccio. Also on the
show, a moving "Enterprising Ideas" profile of a novel program that makes new
cars affordable for the working poor.
