  • 2:00 am
    Making Light In Terezin This documentary tells the true story of how Jewish prisoners held in a concentration camp during World War II fought back against the Nazis - not with guns or bombs - but through song, dance and laughter. In 2005, Lisa Peschel, now a theater studies professor at the University of York, discovered a collection of cabaret scripts - "Laugh With Us"- originally written by four 20-year-old prisoners held in the Czech concentration camp of Terezin. Located outside of Prague, Terezin effectively served as a way station, housing Jews before the Nazis sent them to Auschwitz and other death camps. In the face of this horrific darkness and uncertainty, the Jewish prisoners wrote and enacted comedy shows in a make-shift cabaret. The poignant and inspiring program follows a modern-day theater troupe from Minnesota as they travel to Terezin and attempt to re-stage the shows. Weaving together interviews with the original writers, witnesses to the original production, and scholars, this film tells a story not only of survival, but also the triumph of a culture, artistic expression and the human spirit. duration 56:46   STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: none)

  • MORNING
  • 6:00 am
    Against All Odds: The Fight for a Black Middle Class New York Times Journalist Bob Herbert narrates this documentary about the extraordinary difficulty African-Americans have faced in their efforts to establish and maintain a middle class standard of living. The film will surprise a lot of people. The black middle class has never been as large or as robust as most Americans - including most black Americans - have wanted to believe. Nearly 40 percent of all black children are poor. For every dollar of wealth in the hands of the average white family, the typical black family has only a little more than a nickel. And the devastating effects of the Great Recession and housing foreclosure crisis, which hit blacks much harder than whites, left the black middle class virtually on life support. With a compelling narrative, dramatic historical footage and a series of deeply personal interviews, Bob Herbert explains why this disturbing and often tragic state of affairs exists a century and a half after slavery and a half-century after the heyday of the civil rights movement. duration 56:46   STEREO (Secondary audio: none)

In Hawai'i, indigenous ecological and spiritual practices are used to restore the sacred island of Kaho'olawe after 50 years of military use as a bombing range. duration 59:00   STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: none)
