Live from the Artists Den Mayer Hawthorne "This is a secret show, right?" said Mayer Hawthorne at the start of his performance at the opulent Grand Ballroom of the Park Plaza Hotel in Los Angeles. "Well, tonight, the secret word is fun." He kept his word for the next 90 minutes, as he and his nimble band, The County, blazed through two dozen songs in his updated classic soul style, infused with everything from doo-wop to hip-hop. Over the course of the evening, Hawthorne and his band thrilled an invitation-only crowd of 400 with a set featuring selections from Hawthorne's acclaimed new album, How Do You Do, plus such fan favorites as "Green Eyed Love."

Sounds on 29th Little Fyodor & Timmi Lasley Sid Pink hosts this episode featuring Denver-based comedian Timmi Lasley and Little Fyodor - an artist who has been spreading his unique brand of avant-pop madness throughout the world musical underground for over twenty years, creating twisted, satirical songs which - beneath a crass and maniacal outer shell - express a deep empathy with those who most acutely experience the frustrations and alienation of modern life's "insect existence." Fyodor's songwriting, aesthetics and outlandish performances somehow manage to be simultaneously sad, angry and hilarious, and in doing so, appeal to the silent majority of disillusioned weirdos of the world, whom he adeptly addresses with a theatrical, daresay Vaudevillian flair, that is a brand all his own.

POV When I Walk Jason DaSilva was 25 years old and a rising independent filmmaker when a diagnosis of multiple sclerosis changed everything — and inspired him to make another film. "When I Walk" is a candid and brave chronicle of one young man's struggle to adapt to the harsh realities of M.S. while holding on to his personal and creative life. With his body growing weaker, DaSilva's spirits, and his film, get a boost from his mother's tough love and the support of Alice Cook, who becomes his wife and filmmaking partner. The result is a life-affirming documentary filled with unexpected moments of joy and humor. Official Selection of the 2013 Sundance Film Festival. A co-production of ITVS .

AfroPop: The Ultimate Cultural Exchange Everyday Sunshine This lively and loving documentary, narrated by Laurence Fishburne, charts the turbulent history of the pioneering all-black rock band Fishbone. Formed in 1979 in South Central (Los Angeles), Fishbone landed a major label record deal soon after its members graduated high school. However, after this early success, the band struggled for acceptance in a racially stratified music industry, while their unabashedly hybrid style kept them proudly out of fashion for more than three decades. Through frank interviews with the band, including eccentric co-founders Angelo Moore and Norwood Fisher — as well as Flea, Gwen Stefani, Ice-T, Perry Farrell, Branford Marsalis, George Clinton, Tim Robbins, Gogol Bordello, ?uestlove and others — the film reveals the creative alchemy, the clash of egos, and the enduring friendships behind Fishbone's storied career.

Head On ISIS . ISIS SUSAN: Journalist James Foley was murdered by Islamic terrorists - ISIS. Journalist Steven Sotloff and at least 3 other Americans are hostage to ISIS. And these well-funded, strategic jihadists have massacred thousands of local Iraqi tribes people. Now what? The UN? Our friend-emies the Syrians? Drone strikes? More dead troops? KRISTA: We shouldn't have gone into Iraq. Once there, we shouldn't have pulled out prematurely. Now a radical Islamist state is growing and murdering moderate Muslims, Christians, and other religious minorities. Now that an American has been viciously beheaded, we should adopt a better foreign policy somewhere between nation building and withdrawal. SUSAN: Top military brass insist that ISIS will not be defeated without taking the fight to Syria. Meantime, only the US and Britain rightfully, refuse to pay ransoms for kidnapped citizens. At the same time, we learn James Foley's killer was likely a Brit. No easy answers here. None. KRISTA: ISIS, Al Qaeda, Hamas, Al Shabaab, Hezbollah, Boka Haram, the Taliban. Radical Islam is on the rise in North Africa and Asia. It is a threat to civilization there and here. Having successfully stopped Communism, the US should lead the fight against this new threat. Brace for a long struggle.

Head On DENVER SHERIFF'S MESS DENVER SHERIFF'S MESS KRISTA: Task forces, convened early this year to review the policies of the troubled Denver Sheriff Department released 40 draft recommendations. Recommendations would increase training, supervision, and monitoring. The discipline task force did not offer suggestions because its work continues. Will the recommendations actually change the broken culture of the department? SUSAN: Denver's dept of safety is a mess. Judge John Kane ought to call in the Justice Department - the sooner the better. Mayor Hancock wouldn't know an independent review if it sat down next to him at dinner. His task force is full of cronies and political lackeys who care only about protecting our good-natured but clueless Mayor. KRISTA: There's no point in bringing in the feds. They are likely to politicize the situation. The Denver Sheriff Department should follow the recommendations from the task forces and work hard to redeem the agency's reputation. Mistakes have cost taxpayers millions and victims even more. Time for a new chapter. SUSAN: On the contrary. The feds will bring expertise to a terrible situation that's been entirely politicized by a mayoral administration focused on Michael Hancock's re-election - not a transparent investigation. Hancock failed to fire his buddy the chief sheriff who either didn''t know about or covered up abuses. Bring in the feds.

Intelligence Squared The GOP: Seize the Center or Die? 2012 was a disappointing year for Republicans. The failure to win key swing states in the presidential election, and surprising losses in the House and Senate have prompted some reflection. Was their embrace of small government, low taxes and a strong conservative stance on social issues at odds with shifting American demographics? Or did the GOP embrace the right platform, but the wrong candidates?

FRONTLINE Poor Kids These are hard times in the Quad Cities, a great American crossroads along the border of Iowa and Illinois, where the Mississippi River intersects Interstate 80. Home to John Deere manufacturing and the nation's breadbasket, it's also an area deeply scarred by the recession. FRONTLINE follows three young girls growing up amidst their families' struggles against financial ruin. This an intimate portrait of the economic crisis as it's rarely seen, through the eyes of children. With one in five American children living below the poverty line, "Poor Kids" is an unflinching and revealing exploration of what poverty means to children — and to the country's future.

Genetic Roulette: The Gamble of Our Lives When the US government ignored repeated warnings by its own scientists and allowed untested genetically modified (GM) crops into our environment and food supply, it was a gamble of unprecedented proportions. The health of all living things and all future generations were put at risk by an infant technology. After two decades, physicians and scientists have uncovered a grave trend. The same serious health problems found in lab animals, livestock, and pets that have been fed GM foods are now on the rise in the US population. And when people and animals stop eating genetically modified organisms (GMOs), their health improves. This seminal documentary by bestselling author Jeffrey M Smith provides compelling evidence to help explain the deteriorating health of Americans, especially among children, and offers a recipe for protecting ourselves and our future.

Head On Fergusan 1. FERGUSAN SUSAN: Fergusan MO - all you need to know: donating military weapons to local police is stupid. Poorly trained and educated police are dangerous. Politicians are more adept at duck and cover than peaceful protesters. Racism in American is alive and well. KRISTA: A police officer is hospitalized. A young adult is dead. The facts are under investigation. Yet, race baiters, politicians, and looters paint this as a racist act and profit from it. Was the officer defending himself? Was he racist? We don't yet know and should not judge until we do. SUSAN: Supporters of policeman Darren Wilson raised more money for him than's been raised for his victim, Michael Brown. Racism or merely stupidity - that kind of reactionary meanness is deeply disturbing. Declaring unwavering support for the cop's unwarranted brutality? Call it what you will - it's ugly. KRISTA: We don't know if it was unwarranted. A severely beaten officer might have been using justified force to save his own life. When a black officer shoots a white youth, no one cries racism unless the facts prove otherwise. We must wait for the investigation. Innocent until proven guilty, remember?

After Words AFTER WORDS movingly illuminates the struggle of individuals with aphasia, an acquired communication disorder. Often the result of stroke, traumatic brain injury, or neurological disease, aphasia affects an individual's ability to speak. It is often mistaken for a disorder of intelligence or personality. Due to this misunderstanding, there is often fear, exclusion, or stigma associated with aphasia. The National Aphasia Association estimates that over one million Americans are affected by aphasia which can take many forms. The film features famed neurologist and author Oliver Sacks, speech and language pathologists, members of the National Aphasia Association, and performers such as Bobby McFerrin, Julie Harris, and Jan Curtis, whose lives have been touched by aphasia.

Head On GENETICALLY MODIFIED FOOD (GMF) KRISTA: All domesticated plants are genetically modified from their wild counterparts. What used to take generations of breeding can now be done in the lab. Genetically Modified crops require less water and pesticides. They are safe to eat. The upcoming ballot initiative requiring GMO labeling is unnecessary and will increase prices. SUSAN: Fine, have another spam sandwich - cheap and full of faux nutrition! Prop 105 lets voters decide whether the want food labels to accurately reflect the mico-organisms added to food. Labels will say 'Produced with Genetic Engineering.' Consumers can decide what to buy and what to eat. Truth in labeling makes sense. KRISTA Nearly 80% of the food on grocery store shelves contain GMOs. Labeling requirements will only unnecessarily alarm uninformed shoppers and raise production costs. People who don't like GMOs can buy organic. Proponents behind the labeling initiative want to incite paranoia and get rid of this important scientific innovation altogether.SUSAN: You underestimate the public, Krista. Consumers want and deserve to be informed. Protecting big ag and the processed food industry in the name of alarming shoppers is patronizing. Saying food additives are important scientific innovation is like insisting that pigs fly. We are what we eat. Consumers deserve the truth.

Head On 6th CD . 6TH CDKRISTA: Redrawn to politically competitive, Colorado's 6th Congressional district is now home to the one of the tightest races in the country. Incumbent Republican Mike Coffman faces Democrat Andrew Romanoff, a far left candidate who moved to the district to run. Romanoff would be more at home in Boulder or Denver. SUSAN: Andrew is many things - smart, compassionate, conscientious and deliberate. A far left wing nut? Hardly. Romanoff'S record reflects the new CD 6 demographics - moderate, ethnically and economically diverse and centrist. Mike Coffman is a chameleon who can morph into changing surroundings. His conservative, reaction record says something else. KRISTA: Born in 6th CD, I've lived here most of my life. What we need is someone who will vote to repeal the disastrous Obamacare law, balance the federal budget, and support entitlement reform. Romanoff will do none of those things. Coffman has and will continue to represent us well. SUSAN: Then vote for Andrew. He aims to balance the federal budget. Check out his TV ad. On the contrary, Coffman consistently votes to shift the tax burden from billionaires to the middle class; to make college for expensive for working families and in support of increased Medicare costs for seniors. Coffman vote for plutocrats - not the 6th CD.

Growing Up Green Educational reform in the United States has largely focused on increasing test scores without changing the meaning of schooling for those expected to achieve academic success. As a result, student motivation and test scores have changed little, despite this nationwide effort. Yet, a few schools across the country have tried a different approach, focusing education around the places where students live and solving problems their communities face. However, while showing promise, these efforts have been largely isolated and piecemeal. Yet, they have helped set the stage for a unique statewide effort in Michigan, where for the first time, rural and urban schools, spanning a broad population base, will focus school reform around the environments students inhabit. Growing Up Green, a new documentary from award winning filmmaker Bob Gliner (Schools That Change Communities, Lessons From the Real World, Democracy Left Behind) focuses on this groundbreaking work which hopes to not only change the way public education is practiced, but as a result, educational and environmental outcomes as well.

Under this mandate, it regulates drugs and medical devices for their safety and effectiveness. But is it a failing mandate? It's long been argued that the FDA's long and costly approval processes stifle innovation and keep life-changing treatments from the market. But the question remains: when it comes to public health, is it ever okay to sacrifice safety for speed?

Head On Fergusan 1. FERGUSAN SUSAN: Fergusan MO - all you need to know: donating military weapons to local police is stupid. Poorly trained and educated police are dangerous. Politicians are more adept at duck and cover than peaceful protesters. Racism in American is alive and well. KRISTA: A police officer is hospitalized. A young adult is dead. The facts are under investigation. Yet, race baiters, politicians, and looters paint this as a racist act and profit from it. Was the officer defending himself? Was he racist? We don't yet know and should not judge until we do. SUSAN: Supporters of policeman Darren Wilson raised more money for him than's been raised for his victim, Michael Brown. Racism or merely stupidity - that kind of reactionary meanness is deeply disturbing. Declaring unwavering support for the cop's unwarranted brutality? Call it what you will - it's ugly. KRISTA: We don't know if it was unwarranted. A severely beaten officer might have been using justified force to save his own life. When a black officer shoots a white youth, no one cries racism unless the facts prove otherwise. We must wait for the investigation. Innocent until proven guilty, remember?

9/11: Explosive Evidence - Experts Speak Out 

PROGRAM DESCRIPTION
In this new film, over 40 experts in the fields of structural engineering, high-rise architecture, controlled demolition, physics, chemistry and metallurgy lay out the case for a controlled demolition of the World Trade Center on 9/11. The experts cite evidence showing that high-temperature incendiaries and explosives were planted throughout the twin towers and the lesser-known Building 7 which collapsed later the same day.

The film also addresses the seeming implausibility of the implications of a controlled demolition. Eight experts in psychology (including four from Colorado) discuss the difficulties many people have in confronting this possible reality and how necessary the truth is for healing – both at the individual and collective levels.

Two years in the making, 9/11: EXPERTS SPEAK OUT is the latest film from Architects & Engineers for 911 Truth, represented by founder Richard Gage, AIA.

SPECIAL GUESTS
During the film's live television broadcast premiere on Saturday, August 18 at 7:00 pm on Channel 12.1, Richard Gage, member of the American Institute of Architects and founder of Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth, will appear live in the CPT12 studio. Gage, who directed and produced the film, will comment on the film's finding and his group's rejection of the official World Trade Center reports.

“The official story about the attacks of September 11 falls apart when you look squarely at the facts and apply basic scientific principles to interpret them," says Gage. "After more than ten years, a high-level investigation of the evidence is long overdue. Too much is at stake here to sweep the concerns under the rug. Family members of 9/11 victims speak to the viewers of this film. They explain why they are still not happy with the answers they've been given by our government. And they are asking you to join them in looking at what our experts have to say."

Frances Shure will also be joining co-hosts Shari Bernson and Tom Colbert during the broadcast.
 



ABOUT RICHARD GAGE
Richard Gage, AIA, is a San Francisco Bay Area architect and a member of the American Institute of Architects. He has been an architect for over 23 years and has worked on most types of building construction, including numerous fire-proofed, steel-framed buildings.

Mr. Gage became interested in researching the destruction of the WTC high-rises after hearing on the radio the startling conclusions of reluctant 9/11 researcher David Ray Griffin in 2006, which launched his own unyielding quest for the truth about 9/11. Since founding Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth, Gage has presented Blueprint for Truth all over the world, and he has appeared on radio shows and television spots.

ABOUT FRANCES SHURE
Frances Shure is a retired business owner, Licensed Professional Counselor specializing in-depth psychology, and adjunct instructor at Naropa University.

Solving the Mystery, the destruction of WTC Building #7
This 15-minute documentary, narrated by Ed Asner, highlights the third worst structural failure in modern history – the destruction of World Trade Center Building 7 at 5:20 pm on 9/11. The 47-story skyscraper "collapsed" nearly into its own footprint at free-fall acceleration in under 7 seconds.

A wide variety of technical experts – high-rise architects, structural engineers, controlled demolition technicians, chemists, physicists, and more – present explosive evidence that controlled demolition, not "normal office fires" as claimed by NIST, caused the total destruction of the building.

Produced by Richard Gage, AIA, founder of AE911Truth, "Solving The Mystery of WTC 7" sheds light on this little-known event, and makes apparent the need for a new WTC investigation.

Vanishing of the Bees 

Honeybees have been mysteriously disappearing across the planet, literally vanishing from their hives.

Known as Colony Collapse Disorder, this phenomenon has brought beekeepers to crisis in an industry responsible for producing apples, broccoli, watermelon, onions, cherries and a hundred other fruits and vegetables. Commercial honeybee operations pollinate crops that make up one out of every three bites of food on our tables.

VANISHING OF THE BEES follows commercial beekeepers David Hackenberg and Dave Mendes as they strive to keep their bees healthy and fulfill pollination contracts across the U.S. The film explores the struggles they face as the two friends plead their case on Capital Hill and travel across the Pacific Ocean in the quest to protect their honeybees.

Filming across the US, in Europe, Australia and Asia, this documentary examines the alarming disappearance of honeybees and the greater meaning it holds about the relationship between mankind and mother earth. As scientists puzzle over the cause, organic beekeepers indicate alternative reasons for this tragic loss. Conflicting options abound and after years of research, a definitive answer has not been found to this harrowing mystery.

Head On DENVER SHERIFF'S MESS DENVER SHERIFF'S MESS KRISTA: Task forces, convened early this year to review the policies of the troubled Denver Sheriff Department released 40 draft recommendations. Recommendations would increase training, supervision, and monitoring. The discipline task force did not offer suggestions because its work continues. Will the recommendations actually change the broken culture of the department? SUSAN: Denver's dept of safety is a mess. Judge John Kane ought to call in the Justice Department - the sooner the better. Mayor Hancock wouldn't know an independent review if it sat down next to him at dinner. His task force is full of cronies and political lackeys who care only about protecting our good-natured but clueless Mayor. KRISTA: There's no point in bringing in the feds. They are likely to politicize the situation. The Denver Sheriff Department should follow the recommendations from the task forces and work hard to redeem the agency's reputation. Mistakes have cost taxpayers millions and victims even more. Time for a new chapter. SUSAN: On the contrary. The feds will bring expertise to a terrible situation that's been entirely politicized by a mayoral administration focused on Michael Hancock's re-election - not a transparent investigation. Hancock failed to fire his buddy the chief sheriff who either didn''t know about or covered up abuses. Bring in the feds.

Intelligence Squared Do Too Many Kids Go to College? A part of the Chicago Ideas Week, this debate is the first Intelligence Squared U.S. debate to be held live in Chicago. The herd mentality that assumes college is the only path to reaching one's full potential is under fire. Student loan debt has surpassed credit card debt, unemployment for those with bachelor's degrees is at an all-time high, and entrepreneurs like the founders of Facebook and Microsoft prove that extraordinary success is possible without it. But recent studies show that college is economically beneficial even to those whose jobs don't require it. Is it still the best way to ensure social mobility, or is America's love affair with higher education unjustified?

FRONTLINE Generation Like Thanks to social media, today's teens are able to interact directly with their culture — artists, celebrities, movies, brands and even one another — in ways never before possible. But is that real empowerment? Or do marketers still hold the upper hand? In "Generation Like," author and FRONTLINE correspondent Douglas Rushkoff ("The Merchants of Cool," "The Persuaders") explores how the perennial teen quest for identity and connection has migrated to social media — and exposes the game of cat-and-mouse that corporations are playing with these young consumers. Do kids think they're being used? Do they care? Or does the perceived chance to be the next big star make it all worth it? The film is a powerful examination of the evolving and complicated relationship between teens and the companies that are increasingly working to target them.

Your Turn to Care Episode One The first episode focuses on two families. We meet the first at the beginning stages of caregiving, when even talking about planning for the future is an issue no one wants to address. The episode shows "the talk" the family has with an aging parent which covers such topics as, 'Who has power of attorney?', 'What should go into a health directive?' and 'How can I draft a will that is stress free?' The second family is dealing with the issue of taking the car keys away from an aging parent as well as the desperation felt by the mother's loss of her driver's license. When the mother is required to take a driving test at the age of 75, her very independence is at stake. The episode concludes with a profile of WISE Connections, one of several membership-based community groups sprouting up across the country. These communities, part of the growing "Village Movement," pool their resources to provide practical services to their members, so that seniors may continue living independently in their own homes

Head On GENETICALLY MODIFIED FOOD (GMF) KRISTA: All domesticated plants are genetically modified from their wild counterparts. What used to take generations of breeding can now be done in the lab. Genetically Modified crops require less water and pesticides. They are safe to eat. The upcoming ballot initiative requiring GMO labeling is unnecessary and will increase prices. SUSAN: Fine, have another spam sandwich - cheap and full of faux nutrition! Prop 105 lets voters decide whether the want food labels to accurately reflect the mico-organisms added to food. Labels will say 'Produced with Genetic Engineering.' Consumers can decide what to buy and what to eat. Truth in labeling makes sense. KRISTA Nearly 80% of the food on grocery store shelves contain GMOs. Labeling requirements will only unnecessarily alarm uninformed shoppers and raise production costs. People who don't like GMOs can buy organic. Proponents behind the labeling initiative want to incite paranoia and get rid of this important scientific innovation altogether.SUSAN: You underestimate the public, Krista. Consumers want and deserve to be informed. Protecting big ag and the processed food industry in the name of alarming shoppers is patronizing. Saying food additives are important scientific innovation is like insisting that pigs fly. We are what we eat. Consumers deserve the truth.

Head On 6th CD . 6TH CDKRISTA: Redrawn to politically competitive, Colorado's 6th Congressional district is now home to the one of the tightest races in the country. Incumbent Republican Mike Coffman faces Democrat Andrew Romanoff, a far left candidate who moved to the district to run. Romanoff would be more at home in Boulder or Denver. SUSAN: Andrew is many things - smart, compassionate, conscientious and deliberate. A far left wing nut? Hardly. Romanoff'S record reflects the new CD 6 demographics - moderate, ethnically and economically diverse and centrist. Mike Coffman is a chameleon who can morph into changing surroundings. His conservative, reaction record says something else. KRISTA: Born in 6th CD, I've lived here most of my life. What we need is someone who will vote to repeal the disastrous Obamacare law, balance the federal budget, and support entitlement reform. Romanoff will do none of those things. Coffman has and will continue to represent us well. SUSAN: Then vote for Andrew. He aims to balance the federal budget. Check out his TV ad. On the contrary, Coffman consistently votes to shift the tax burden from billionaires to the middle class; to make college for expensive for working families and in support of increased Medicare costs for seniors. Coffman vote for plutocrats - not the 6th CD.

Head On ISIS . ISIS SUSAN: Journalist James Foley was murdered by Islamic terrorists - ISIS. Journalist Steven Sotloff and at least 3 other Americans are hostage to ISIS. And these well-funded, strategic jihadists have massacred thousands of local Iraqi tribes people. Now what? The UN? Our friend-emies the Syrians? Drone strikes? More dead troops? KRISTA: We shouldn't have gone into Iraq. Once there, we shouldn't have pulled out prematurely. Now a radical Islamist state is growing and murdering moderate Muslims, Christians, and other religious minorities. Now that an American has been viciously beheaded, we should adopt a better foreign policy somewhere between nation building and withdrawal. SUSAN: Top military brass insist that ISIS will not be defeated without taking the fight to Syria. Meantime, only the US and Britain rightfully, refuse to pay ransoms for kidnapped citizens. At the same time, we learn James Foley's killer was likely a Brit. No easy answers here. None. KRISTA: ISIS, Al Qaeda, Hamas, Al Shabaab, Hezbollah, Boka Haram, the Taliban. Radical Islam is on the rise in North Africa and Asia. It is a threat to civilization there and here. Having successfully stopped Communism, the US should lead the fight against this new threat. Brace for a long struggle.

Head On DENVER SHERIFF'S MESS DENVER SHERIFF'S MESS KRISTA: Task forces, convened early this year to review the policies of the troubled Denver Sheriff Department released 40 draft recommendations. Recommendations would increase training, supervision, and monitoring. The discipline task force did not offer suggestions because its work continues. Will the recommendations actually change the broken culture of the department? SUSAN: Denver's dept of safety is a mess. Judge John Kane ought to call in the Justice Department - the sooner the better. Mayor Hancock wouldn't know an independent review if it sat down next to him at dinner. His task force is full of cronies and political lackeys who care only about protecting our good-natured but clueless Mayor. KRISTA: There's no point in bringing in the feds. They are likely to politicize the situation. The Denver Sheriff Department should follow the recommendations from the task forces and work hard to redeem the agency's reputation. Mistakes have cost taxpayers millions and victims even more. Time for a new chapter. SUSAN: On the contrary. The feds will bring expertise to a terrible situation that's been entirely politicized by a mayoral administration focused on Michael Hancock's re-election - not a transparent investigation. Hancock failed to fire his buddy the chief sheriff who either didn''t know about or covered up abuses. Bring in the feds.

Head On Fergusan 1. FERGUSAN SUSAN: Fergusan MO - all you need to know: donating military weapons to local police is stupid. Poorly trained and educated police are dangerous. Politicians are more adept at duck and cover than peaceful protesters. Racism in American is alive and well. KRISTA: A police officer is hospitalized. A young adult is dead. The facts are under investigation. Yet, race baiters, politicians, and looters paint this as a racist act and profit from it. Was the officer defending himself? Was he racist? We don't yet know and should not judge until we do. SUSAN: Supporters of policeman Darren Wilson raised more money for him than's been raised for his victim, Michael Brown. Racism or merely stupidity - that kind of reactionary meanness is deeply disturbing. Declaring unwavering support for the cop's unwarranted brutality? Call it what you will - it's ugly. KRISTA: We don't know if it was unwarranted. A severely beaten officer might have been using justified force to save his own life. When a black officer shoots a white youth, no one cries racism unless the facts prove otherwise. We must wait for the investigation. Innocent until proven guilty, remember?

NOVA Are We Alone? Scientists are on the verge of answering one of the greatest questions in history: Are we alone? Combining the latest telescope images with dazzling CGI, Life Beyond Earth will immerse audiences in the sights and sounds of alien worlds, while top astrobiologists explain how these places are changing how we think about the potential for life in our solar system. We used to think our neighboring planets and moons were fairly boring - mostly cold, dead rocks where life could never take hold. Today, however, the solar system looks wilder than we ever imagined. Powerful telescopes and unmanned space missions have revealed a wide range of dynamic environments - atmospheres thick with organic molecules, active volcanoes, and vast saltwater oceans. This ongoing revolution is forcing scientists to expand their ideas about what kinds of worlds could support life. And if we do find primitive life forms elsewhere in the solar system, it may well be that life is common in the universe-the rule, and not the exception.

Buddha, The Two and a half millennia ago, a new religion was born in northern India, generated from the ideas of a single man, the Buddha, a mysterious Indian sage who famously gained enlightenment while he sat under a large, shapely fig tree. The Buddha never claimed to be God or his emissary on earth. He said only that he was a human being who, in a world of unavoidable pain and suffering, had found a kind of serenity that others could find, too. This documentary by award-winning filmmaker David Grubin tells the story of his life, a journey especially relevant in our own bewildering times of violent change and spiritual confusion. Richard Gere narrates.
