Pacific Heartbeat Under a Jarvis Moon Under a Jarvis Moon is the story of 130 young men from Hawai'i who, from the late 1930s through the early years of World War II, were part of a clandestine mission by the U.S. federal government to occupy desert islands in the middle of the Pacific. The first wave of these colonists were Hawaiian high school students, chosen because government officials assumed Pacific Islanders could best survive the harsh conditions present on the tiny, isolated islands. For the young men, who were unaware of the true purpose of their role as colonists, what ensued is a tale of intrigue, courage, and ultimately, tragedy. Amazingly, these men (four of whom are still alive) are only now being recognized for their sacrifice, and efforts are underway for the United States to officially acknowledge them for serving their country.

Take Back Your Power 

PROGRAM DESCRIPTION
Around the world, corporate utilities and governments are racing to replace electricity, gas and water meters with new-generation 'smart' meters with surveillance capabilities, quietly using billions in taxpayer funds. But at what cost to human rights, finances, security and health?

With compelling insight from insiders, government representatives, whistle-blowers, lawyers, doctors and environmentalists, TAKE BACK YOUR POWER investigates claimed benefits and emerging risks of this ubiquitous 'smart' grid program.

Transparency advocate Josh del Sol takes us on a journey of revelation and discovery while asking:
  • Are 'smart' grid technologies effective, safe and eco-friendly?
  • Or are corporations violating foundational rights and privacy - without providing benefit - in the name of 'green'?
  • What truly sustainable solutions are now unfolding that can meet the great challenges faced by our civilization?
What he uncovered will surprise, unsettle and inspire you.



SPECIAL GUESTS
During the film's US broadcast premiere on Saturday, September 13 2014, producer & director Josh del Sol and Colorado-based activist Virginia Farver will appear live in the CPT12 studio with co-hosts Shari Bernson, CPT12 Director of Development, and Rebecca Stevens.
 

ABOUT JOSH DEL SOL
Josh del Sol is the Director and Producer of TAKE BACK YOUR POWER, his first feature film. Born and raised near Vancouver BC, Josh is passionate about the growing movement of social awakening. He has a vision for a more equitable and transparent social structure, with foundational values which honor the sanctity of life and human rights. Josh finds inspiration in those of courage who speak truth to power, from a place of non-violence and vision, laying the foundation for necessary solutions.

ABOUT VIRGINIA FARVER
After losing her son Rich to brain cancer, Virginia Farver started doing research about the electromagnetic radiation (EMR) emitted by cell phones and cell towers. Now an activist, Virginia works to inform people about the increasing intensities and number of sources of man-made (EMR) and how this unnatural, cumulative radiation is adversely affecting people, animals, insects including bees, and plants.



SKYPE INTERVIEWS

Katie Singer
In this Skype interview, Katie Singer, author of An Electronic Silent Spring, discusses electromagnetic radiation (EMR) – which is emitted by devices such as mobile phones, mobile phone chargers, iPads, cellular antennas, Wi-Fi, compact fluorescent lights, transformers and “smart” utility meters – and how it can harm people and wildlife.

Dr. Timothy Schoechle
In this Skype interview, Dr. Timothy Schoechle outlines his concerns about "smart" meters, including possible invasions of privacy and wasted taxpayer money. Schoechle engaged in the development of electric utility meters, home automation systems, gateways, and energy management systems for over 25 years. He now sits on several international standards-setting committees related to the smart grid.

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.



IN-STUDIO GUESTS:
During its CPT12 premiere, filmmaker George Langworthy and Colorado beekeeper Tom Theobald will join CPT12 Director of Development Shari Bernson and Rebecca Stevens live in the studio to discuss the film.

If Not Us How do you stand up for your principles? IF NOT US, an original CPT12 documentary, chronicles a multi-media collaboration on civil rights in which local high school students and seasoned community activists recorded compelling accounts about standing up for what you believe in (or wishing you had).

The students of East High School in Denver then staged a play based on these stories – their own, present-day experiences as well as the accounts of past civil and human rights trials shared by their older counterparts.

From the beginning, CPT12 was there to capture the entire, compelling process of young people and community “elders” learning from each other in order to create something bigger than themselves.

This unique collaboration included The Center for Digital Storytelling, Warm Cookies of the Revolution, the Buntport Theater and East High School of Denver Public Schools.

NOVA Lethal Seas Marine scientists across the world are hunting for clues to one of the greatest environmental catastrophes facing our planet today: ocean acidification. For years we've known the ocean absorbs about a quarter of the carbon dioxide in Earth's atmosphere. But as carbon emissions continue to rise, seawater chemistry is changing, and the ocean's acidity is increasing. As a result, many marine animals struggle to form the skeletons and shells vital for their survival. From the planet's poles to the tropics, thousands of species are in danger. NOVA takes viewers to the front lines of this burgeoning crisis. At Oregon's Whiskey Creek Shellfish Hatchery, we see where an entire batch of 100 million oyster larvae died within days. On the other side of the world, nestled among the volcanic islands of Milne Bay, Papua New Guinea, a striking coral garden may be being poisoned by a stream of carbon dioxide bubbles erupting from cracks in the ocean floor. Is this a vision of the future? How will the ocean's incredible creatures adapt and evolve in the face of this challenge?

Is this a vision of the future? How will the ocean's incredible creatures adapt and evolve in the face of this challenge? NOVA joins scientists from around the world as they race to save our oceans from an uncertain fate.

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 .

American Experience War of the Worlds On Sunday, October 30, 1938, the night before Halloween, millions of Americans gathered around their radios and heard a news bulletin about strange explosions on Mars, followed by other reports that led them to believe an alien invasion was in progress. Relive the thrill of Orson Welles' infamous radio dramatization of H.G. Wells' War of the Worlds, 75 years after it set off one of the biggest mass hysteria events in U.S. history. The film examines the elements that made America ripe for the hoax: America's longtime fascination with life on Mars; the emergence of radio as a powerful new medium; the shocking Hindenburg explosion of 1937; and Welles himself, the 23-year-old wunderkind director of the drama and mischief-maker supreme.

Rivers & Rails: Daggers of the Civil War Tennessee prospered in the mid 19th century in large part as a result of the easy transportation the rivers and railways provided. However in 1861, those same rivers and rails that had transported prosperity to Tennessee and the South became lifelines for moving men, ammunition and supplies in a war that split the nation. Ultimately whoever controls the rivers and the rails in the Civil War wins the war. This explains why most of the battles in Tennessee took place near the state's rivers and railways. As a military strategy, it is straightforward and simple. But controlling the rivers and rails in the Civil War goes outside want to live in peace.
