    Washington Week [#5639H] * President Trump and House Speaker Paul Ryan pulled the Republican health care reform bill from the House floor after it became clear it did not have the votes to pass. Moments after the decision, Trump told The Washington Post's Robert Costa that he is open to a bipartisan deal in the future. "When it explodes, [Democrats] come to us and we make one beautiful deal," Trump said. We explain the fallout of the high stakes debate with Costa, The Washington Post's Philip Rucker and The New York Times' Yamiche Alcindor.
    * While President Trump pushes for a win on health care, he continues to face ongoing questions about coordination between his top campaign officials and Russia. The FBI director told Congress there is an ongoing investigation and said there is no evidence to back up the president's claims that his predecessor wiretapped Trump Tower. Democrats are also questioning the credibility of the House Intelligence Committee investigation after Republican Chairman Devin Nunes, a close Trump ally, briefed the president about evidence of the "incidental collection" of communications by Trump associates. Michael Crowley of Politico shares the latest details of the ongoing investigations.
    * Plus, President Trump has repeatedly responded to events during his first 60 days in office with unsubstantiated tweets and questions about the reliability of U.S. intelligence. The Wall Street Journal Editorial Board harshly called into question Trump's credibility, writing that he "clings to his assertion like a drunk to an empty gin bottle." The Trump administration's reliance on alternative facts also led Time Magazine to ask, "Is truth dead?" We explore Trump's relationship with the truth and the consequences of falsehoods with Time's Michael Scherer, who interviewed the president for this week's cover story.

    Beyond The Powder: The Legacy of the First Women's Cross-Country Air Race This documentary follows the female pilots of the 2014 Air Race Classic racers as they make their way across the country, while telling the story of the first women's cross-country air race of 1929, also known as the Powder Puff Derby.
    The first Women's Air Derby in 1929 - which was comprised of 20 women, including Amelia Earhart - was flown from Santa Monica to the finish line in Cleveland, kicking off the National Air Races. The country watched as these brave women made history flying cross-country, breaking into a competition that was thought to be for men only. They encountered sabotage, death, and all the difficulties of flying at the dawn of aviation.
    Today the Powder Puff Derby continues as the Air Race Classic, with modern day racers carrying out the legacy and the adventurous spirit of the original racers. Showing that they were more than just their make-up, the original Derby contestants have inspired those flying today to truly push beyond the powder.

    Breaking Through The Clouds: The First Women's National Air Derby In August of 1929 twenty women pulled on britches, snapped on goggles and climbed into their cockpits to race across the country. It was the first women's national air derby. There was the media darling, the Hollywood starlet, the aviatrix record breakers and the unforgettable foul-mouthed wife of a preacher. Together these women were flying in the face of anyone who believed women belonged on the ground. Breaking Through The Clouds is the documentary that tells their story. duration 1:29:00   STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: none)

    America Reframed [#407] Divide In Concord The year was 1775 in Concord, Massachusetts when colonists fired the infamous 'shot heard round the world' that began the American Revolution. One hundred years later, the work of local resident Henry David Thoreau began the environmental movement. And now, the spirit of revolution has returned to town. Jean Hill, a fiery 84-year-old widow and mother of four, wants to ban the sale of bottled water from Concord. Her path begins when her grandson tells her about the disastrous environmental effects of the empty plastic bottles Jean presents a bylaw to ban the sale of single-serve plastic bottles at the 2010 and 2011 Town Meetings. After losing by seven votes in 2011, she vows to continue the crusade with neighbor and Harvard Law Grad, Jill Appel. If enacted, the law would be the first of its kind in the world. But all are not in agreement with the ban. Merchants are wary of the bylaw. Philanthropist, mother, model and celebrity publicist Adriana Cohen takes the fight to the spotlight, calling the ban an attack on freedom. With billions of dollars at stake, The International Bottled Water Association sends in the cavalry. The town is abuzz as Patriot's Day celebrations begin. War re-enactors take the field, cannons fire at dawn, and the parades commence. April's Town Meeting provides the stage for Concord's latest battle. From the town that began America and Environmentalism, springs a new Revolution. duration 1:26:46   STEREO (Secondary audio: none)

    Penny: Champion of the Marginalized This documentary presents a multi-dimensional portrait of Penny Cooper, a celebrated criminal defense attorney, art collector, supporter of female artists,and protector of the underdog. Cooper's life brims with stories mirroring the profound changes in our country from the 1940s to the present.
    Cooper proves herself quite the raconteur with seemingly unlimited anecdotes. Her stories are engaging; sometimes funny, and sometimes distressing. The film is a collection of these moments as told by Cooper and the people who have been impacted by her dynamic spirit.
    The talented lawyer and art enthusiast offers a unique perspective on important social narratives such as criminal justice, the artists and collectors who generate today's global contemporary art market, gender equality, and more. Through it all, she has found herself at the center of dramatic social progress for women. A role model and pioneer, Cooper perhaps owes much of her success in transcending the glass ceiling to her unwavering resilience, fortitude and infamous humility.
