Moyers & Company How Public Power Can Defeat Plutocrats This week, Lawrence Lessig and Zephyr Teachout return to talk further about the corrupting influence of money in politics, a subject both have studied as scholars and fought against as reformers. Government has become a clearinghouse for corporations and plutocrats with deep pockets to buy the politicians who grease the wheels for lucrative contracts and easy regulation. It's all pay for play, and look the other way. Consider this from the watchdog Sunlight Foundation: From 2007 to 2012, two hundred corporations spent almost $6 billion for lobbying and campaign contributions. And they received more than $4 trillion in government contracts and other forms of assistance. That's why K Street is lobbying's road to Paradise. Now that the midterm elections are over, it's payback time, with the newly elected Congress ready to deliver to those who invested well in their chosen candidates. Lawrence Lessig teaches at Harvard Law School and made his reputation as an expert on the Internet. He started the Mayday SuperPac, raising millions for congressional candidates who vowed to fight for campaign finance reform. All but two of them lost - but the fight continues. He tells Bill Moyers, "When we look at the systematic way in which our representatives are responsive not to the people alone, but increasingly to the funders exclusively, then that is an obvious corruption... This is not a Democratic issue. This is not a Republican issue. This is an American issue." Zephyr Teachout, who teaches at Fordham Law School, ran for Governor of New York, trying to rouse the public against corruption in state government. She got more than a third of the vote in the Democratic primary. Teachout also is the author of Corruption in America: From Benjamin Franklin's Snuff Box to Citizens United. "When you talk about the corruption in Congress, people are talking about the same thing that Madison was talking about," she says, "this sense that our public servants are just serving themselves. They're running away with the resources of our country."

THE DAY IT SNOWED IN MIAMI The Day It Snowed in Miami, a film by Joe Cardona in association with the Miami Herald and WPBT2 that chronicles Miami-Dade County's 1977 human-rights ordinance battle.The documentary's title serves as a metaphor: the ordinance that sparked the outrage was debated by commissioners on an uncharacteristically frigid night and some opponents at the time remarked that the ordinance would pass "when hell freezes over." The morning after the ordinance was approved - Jan. 19, 1977 - Miamians woke up to snowflakes for the first and, so far, only time.The ordinance and subsequent battle in South Florida between liberal supporters and conservative singer Anita Bryant's Save Our Children group, thrust gay rights into the national spotlight for the first time and the film documents the LGBT movement through the present.

HAFU With an ever increasing movement of people between places in this transnational age, there is a mounting number of mixed-race people in Japan, some visible others not. "Hafu" is the unfolding journey of discovery into the intricacies of mixed-race Japanese and their multicultural experience in modern day Japan. The film follows the lives of five "hafus"-the Japanese term for people who are half-Japanese-as they explore what it means to be multiracial and multicultural in a nation that once proudly proclaimed itself as the mono-ethnic nation. For some of these hafus Japan is the only home they know, for some living in Japan is an entirely new experience, and others are caught somewhere between two different worlds.According to the Japanese Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare, one in forty-nine babies born in Japan today are born into families with one non-Japanese parent. This newly emerging minority in Japan is under-documented and under-explored in both literature and media. The feature-length HD documentary ?lm, "Hafu - the mixed-race experience in Japan" seeks to open this increasingly important dialogue. The ?lm explores race, diversity, multiculturalism, nationality, and identity within the mixed-race community of Japan. And through this exploration, it seeks to answer the following questions: What does it mean to be hafu?; What does it mean to be Japanese?; and ultimately, What does all of this mean for Japan?Narrated by the hafus themselves, along with candid interviews and cinéma vérité footage, the viewer is guided through a myriad of hafu experiences that are influenced by upbringing, family relationships, education, and even physical appearance. As the film interweaves five unique life stories, audiences discover the depth and diversity of hafu personal identities

Ted Bell and the Ridge Retired Col. Ted Bell became The Citadel's most decorated World War II veteran for his valor in holding a rugged ridge on the Pacific island of Okinawa, but the deaths of so many of his men in his Easy Company of the 77th Infantry Division weighed on his mind as the decades passed. "It was hard on him when he was by himself," his wife, Mary Hill Bell, said.But holding the place near Ishimmi Ridge over a tortuous three days of combat proved to be a decisive moment in the war in the Pacific, puncturing a hole in the Japanese's Shuri Line and clearing the way for the United States to win the island and use it for the planned invasion of Japan. Two months later, Japan surrendered after the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki.

Moffatt Burris and The Crossing Few know the privilege of being portrayed on the silver screen by Robert Redford, but that's exactly what happened to South Carolinian Moffatt Burriss.Major Cook, Redford's character in "A Bridge Too Far," was based in part on Burriss' heroic actions during World War II. The 1977 film tells Hollywood's version of the failed attempt to capture several bridges in Operation Market Garden, the largest airborne operation in history.Burriss, now of Columbia, was a paratrooper from Anderson in the famed 82nd Airborne Division, and played a critical role in the crossing of the Waal River in Nijmegen, Holland. In their attempt to take the bridge, Burriss and his men were forced to cross the swift river in canvas boats with few paddles. Some were forced to use the butts of their guns to row, leaving them even more vulnerable to attack by the Germans who were easily picking off the soldiers.Burriss, and fellow paratrooper Roy Hanna, of Pinehurst, NC, talk about their harrowing experiences, and their feelings of exasperation when, after finally securing the bridge, the British wouldn't move down the road and rescue their own paratroopers trapped behind enemy lines at Arnhem.The program also portrays Burriss' return to Nijmegan in 2010 for the 65th anniversary of the battle. To commemorate the occasion, Burriss, four days shy of his 90th birthday, parachuted out of an airplane in tandem with a female Dutch paratrooper. During the visit, he also came face to face with the British commander who refused to move.

Sisters SISTERS is a one-hour documentary that takes the audience into the life stories of five American nuns. It is a film about faith and hope, love and death, seen through the eyes of five women who have committed everything to the service of others in the deepest way. Their stories are told in the honest words and actions of the women themselves. They hold nothing back. Each has taken the vows of poverty, chastity and obedience, and their devotion is revealed principally through service to those in need— the poor, sick, and uneducated. They live and work around us, and yet to many they seem to exist in a world of their own. Out in their everyday existence, in the clothing of ordinary women, these Sisters live lives that are at once profoundly spiritual yet deeply human. How did they come to embrace this extraordinary life and its sacrifices? How do they actually experience the presence of God? What happens when they fall in love? What happens when they experience cruelty and death—the loss of a mother, the random and merciless anguish of a child's cancer? What anchors their faith? Through the vivid stories of these women's lives, the film explores the deepest hopes and yearnings of the human spirit, the risks and rewards of a generous heart. Beautifully produced by three-time Emmy winner and Academy Award nominee Robert Gardner, the film is a surprising and moving exploration of a world few of us know.

Songs to Keep: Treasures of an Adirondack Folk Collector The Emmy-winning special SONGS TO KEEP: TREASURES OF AN ADIRONDACK FOLK COLLECTOR opens a musical time capsule from a hundred years ago. Marjorie Lansing Porter (1891-1973) dedicated her life to preserving the rare folk songs of the Adirondacks. Throughout the 1940s and '50s, Porter traveled throughout New York State, interviewing and recording traditional musicians and singers in the hopes of creating a comprehensive collection of previously unpublished folk songs, transcripts and other writings. Like folksong collectors Alan Lomax and Anne and Frank Warner, Porter captured many songs just before the last living tradition bearers died. The Marjorie L. Porter Collection of North Country Folklore consists of more than 300 traditional ballads, songs from lumber camps and iron mines, Irish and French-Canadian songs, and Iroquois chants. The collection also includes dozens of oral histories and Porter's collected writings. SONGS TO KEEP features contemporary folk musicians Lee Knight, David Ruch, Dan Berggren, Alex Smith and others discussing and performing these traditional tunes.

The United States Naval Academy Glee Club with members of the Annapolis Symphony Orchestra and world-renowned guest soloists create a unique performance of one of the greatest choral works in Western music. Recorded at the Beautiful Chapel on the grounds of the Naval Academy in Annapolis, Maryland.Messiah is an English-language large musical composition for orchestra, choir, and soloists composed in 1741 by George Frideric Handel, with a scriptural text compiled by Charles Jennens from the King James Bible, and from the version of the Psalms included with the Book of Common Prayer. It was first performed in Dublin 272 years ago on April 13, 1742.The original performance highlighted Jennens's text is an extended reflection on Jesus Christ as Messiah. The text begins in Part 1 with prophecies by Isaiah and others, and moves to the annunciation to the shepherds, the only "scene" taken from the Gospels. In Part II, Handel concentrates on the Passion and ends with the "Hallelujah" chorus. In Part III he covers the resurrection of the dead and Christ's glorification in Heaven.Our program is an abridged version of the entire original work, which boasts performances by Ms. Karen Clift, Soprano, Mr. Robin Blaze, Countertenor, Mr. Gregory Kunde, Tenor, Mr. Dean Peterson, Bass, and conducted by Dr. Aaron Smith, Director of Musical Activities for the Naval Academy. The young patriots singing this wonderful music come from every state across the country to attend the Naval Academy, not only to receive their undergraduate degree, but more importantly, to accept a Commission to serve our great nation as Officers in the United States Navy or United States Marine Corps.

Today, more than 80 percent of Americans live in cities, with less than 1 percent of the population claiming farming as an occupation.However, many city-dwellers are re-imagining the possibilities of farming in urban settings — growing their own food in empty lots and lawns, and creating healthier, stronger and more vibrant communities in the process. GROWING CITIES examines the role of urban agriculture in the United States and its potential for revitalizing cities and changing the way Americans eat.

FIRE IN THE FOREST: THE LIFE AND LEGACY OF THE BA'AL SHEM TOV Rabbi Israel ben Eliezer (1698-1760), known as the Ba'al Shem Tov ("Master of the Good Name"), is one of the most beloved and celebrated, yet elusive, figures in Jewish history. Today, Jews worldwide — and even non-Jews — revere him as the founder of the Hasidic movement, a 18th-century offshoot of Judaism that promotes a mystical interpretation of the Bible, and as a model of piety and spirituality. The documentary A FIRE IN THE FOREST explores the life and legacy of the Ba'al Shem Tov through interviews with religious leaders and scholars, and on-location footage. The title derives from a tale about rabbis finding a hidden fire in the forest where they could appeal to God for help and have their prayers answered.

The United States Naval Academy Glee Club with members of the Annapolis Symphony Orchestra and world-renowned guest soloists create a unique performance of one of the greatest choral works in Western music. Recorded at the Beautiful Chapel on the grounds of the Naval Academy in Annapolis, Maryland.Messiah is an English-language large musical composition for orchestra, choir, and soloists composed in 1741 by George Frideric Handel, with a scriptural text compiled by Charles Jennens from the King James Bible, and from the version of the Psalms included with the Book of Common Prayer. It was first performed in Dublin 272 years ago on April 13, 1742.The original performance highlighted Jennens's text is an extended reflection on Jesus Christ as Messiah. The text begins in Part 1 with prophecies by Isaiah and others, and moves to the annunciation to the shepherds, the only "scene" taken from the Gospels. In Part II, Handel concentrates on the Passion and ends with the "Hallelujah" chorus. In Part III he covers the resurrection of the dead and Christ's glorification in Heaven.Our program is an abridged version of the entire original work, which boasts performances by Ms. Karen Clift, Soprano, Mr. Robin Blaze, Countertenor, Mr. Gregory Kunde, Tenor, Mr. Dean Peterson, Bass, and conducted by Dr. Aaron Smith, Director of Musical Activities for the Naval Academy. The young patriots singing this wonderful music come from every state across the country to attend the Naval Academy, not only to receive their undergraduate degree, but more importantly, to accept a Commission to serve our great nation as Officers in the United States Navy or United States Marine Corps.
