Reagan

Ronald Reagan has been heralded as one of the architects of the modern world and since his death many Americans have been working to cement his legacy. But some critics argue that the aftershocks of Reaganomics is still causing economies to crumble the world over and that the hubris of Reagan's foreign policy continues to propel America into a cycle of overseas ventures. To such critics, Reagan is an ominous figure who did more harm than good. But who was Ronald Reagan, and how did he come to shape world politics in the way he did? Featuring in-depth interviews with those who worked with him and knew him best, this film provides a definitive and penetrating look at Reaganism, whose grip on the public mind has been rekindled by recent events in Republican politics.

Ready Jet Go!

Space Junk/Scientific Sean

"Space Junk" - After learning about space junk, the kids are determined to help do their part to clean up their "space neighborhood." They meet up with Uncle Zucchini, a long-time galaxy garbage man! Using Bortronian technology, they start a cleanup. During the course of the day, our kids learn that recycling is necessary both on Earth and in space! Curriculum: The outer space region around Earth swarms with millions of pieces of man-made space junk that create potential hazards. Objects as small as 4 inches can be seen by radar or optical telescopes on Earth. Cleaning the debris is a challenge. Trips to larger objects could remove them from orbit, but that's expensive. Another proposal is using lasers to provide a path-changing push that wouldn't damage the object. "Scientific Sean" - Jet is fascinated by Earth paper airplanes when he watches Sean casually fold one. Jet suggests that the kids challenge each other to build the plane that will fly the farthest, and still carry the payload of a message. Sean wants to use the Scientific Method to solve the distance/size issues. CURRICULUM: The Scientific Method is a simple set of rules that scientists use the world over, to make sure that they are doing their experiments correctly and in a way that they can repeat. But great science comes from both the application of this simple set of rules AND from imagination and inspiration.

Candy Bomber

To children living in the rubble of post-war Germany, it was candy from heaven. Some saw it as a sign that somebody in America cared about them. To Gail "Hal" Halvorsen, who became known worldwide as the Candy Bomber, the Berlin Airlift was the healing balm on the wounds of war. The British, American and Frenchair forces delivered 2. 3 million tons of lifegiving supplies on the ground at the three West Berlin airports. There were 277,569 flights over 16 months. Gail and his Air force buddies dropped 20 tons of treats on handkerchief parachutes and delivered 6,500 pounds of chocolate bars to the 1948 West Berlin children's Christmas parties on the ground. Halvorsen, who hailed from Garland, Utah, was a C-54pilot in the summer of 1948 after a Soviet blockade left the vanquished citizens of Berlin's Western zone without food and supplies. Two million citizens faced starvation. Halvorsen was part of "Operation Vittles" that flew in flour, dried food and coal. One day, in a simple gesture of goodwill, Halvorsen gave two sticks of Wrigley's doublemint gum to a few German children watching the planes at Tempelhof Airbase in Berlin. Impressed by how they shared the small treat, he promised to bring more candy the next day and told them to watch for a plane that wiggled its wings. That would mean there was candy on board that he would drop. The children gathered and waited. Other pilots had given Halvorsen their rations for the children. Halvorsen put handkerchief parachutes on the candy to soften the fall. Every day, more children came to wave for candy from Uncle Wiggly Wings. The touching story of one man's efforts to bring a little joy to the children of a defeated enemy are chronicled through first-hand stories from two Berlin children, now in their 70s, Halvorson's friend and fellow airlift pilot, and, of course, Colonel Gail Halverson, The Candy Bomber. After a German reporter was nearly hit in the head by a chocolate bar, the reporter put a story out that went around the world. Halvorsen was told to report to his superiors. Instead of a reprimand, he was told to "keep doing it!" The operation grew organically. Women's clubs tied handkerchief parachutes and two German secretaries were hired to answer all the letters from children, some of whom sent empty handkerchiefs to be refilled. Recognizing the public relations value of the growing operation, Gen. William Tunner sent Halvorsen to New York on a press tour. When stories began appearing on TV and radio, the American Confectioners Association sent 6,500 pounds of candy by boat and rail. A college in Massachusetts organized 22 schools and processed 18 tons of candy in 7 months. One little boy who said his legs weren't long enough to run for the candy sent a letter with a map. He told Uncle Wiggly Wings how to get to the backyard of his bombed out house for a candy drop. When the candy didn't arrive, the boy sent another letter. "You are a pilot. I sent you a map. How did you guys win the war anyway?" Halvorsen mailed him his candy. Grateful children and their parents brought gifts to Halvorsen. In a particularly moving sequence in the film, Halvorsen tells of a little girl who gave him her teddy bear. She told him that during the bombing of Berlin, when they sought shelter in cellars, the teddy bear was always with her. "The Airlift saved my life," she told him. Now, she wanted the good luck bear to save the lives of the men flying the candy planes. "It was such a powerful force," says Halvorsen of the operation that won the hearts of a former enemy. A 60-year old man quietly approached Halvorsen at the 1998 Berlin Airlift Anniversary ceremony. He summed up the true meaning of the gift he had received as a 10-year-old thanks to Halvorsen. "What was important was not the candy bar, but that somebody in America knew I was in trouble and somebody cared. I can live on thin rations," he said, "But not without hope. Without hope the soul dies."

"Stop and Smell the Flowers" - Mom takes Tiny, Buddy, and Don on a super secret daytrip to Qianzhousaurus Pond, where they meet Quentin Qianzhousaurus - a Tyrannosaur with similar features to Buddy, except for one major thing - Quentin has a long, thin snout covered in tiny horns! The kids think that Quentin's long snout gives him a super smelling sense, but after a series of tests, they realize that he and Buddy have the same sniffing power. Can Quentin and Buddy's super sniffers solve the mystery of Mom's secret daytrip? Educational Objectives: Qianzhousaurus was a Tyrannosaur from the late cretaceous with a long, narrow snout (covered in tiny horns). Tyrannosaurs came in a variety of shapes and sizes. Qianzhousaurus probably hunted much smaller prey than its super strong- jawed cousin. T. Rex. "Moms' Campout" - Mrs. Pteranodon organizes a "Moms' Campout" with other moms and kids in the neighborhood. While on the way to the campout, Mr. Conductor challenges the kids to make a real "nature connection" by creating games that push them to look at nature from a different point of view. Educational Objectives: You can't appreciate nature just by looking at it. You need to dig in and be a part of it: splashing, climbing, getting dirty, and looking at things in a whole new way. Forming a "Nature Connection" (that is, fostering a bond with the natural world) is a hands-on, full body, multisensory activity that is essential for a healthy childhood.

Raising Ms. President

Women make up more than half of the American population and workforce. Yet, the United States only ranks 97th out of 190 countries when it comes to the number of women in elected office. According to research conducted by Jennifer Lawless, director of the Women & Politics Institute, and Richard Fox, political science department chair at Loyola Marymount University, women are less likely than men to run for office, and often consider themselves under-qualified to serve, despite their success in business and education. In the documentary RAISING MS. PRESIDENT, filmmaker Kiley Lane explores why more women don't run for office. Through interviews with elected officials, scholars, high school students and leaders of two non-profits dedicated to raising the next generation of female leaders, the program investigates where political ambition begins and why society should encourage more women to lead. Interviewees include Anne Moses, founder of IGNITE; Senator Lisa Murkowski, Republican of Alaska; Tiffany Dufu, former president of the White House Project; Melissa Deckman, professor of public affairs at Washington College; Susannah W. Shakow, founder of Running Start; Emiliana Simon-Thomas, cognitive, affective and behavioral neuroscientist at UC Berkeley; and Amanda Adkins, GOP state chair, Kansas; among others.

Dinosaur Train

Junior Conductors Academy: Part One/Junior Conductors Academy: Part Two

"Junior Conductors Academy: Part One" - The kids are all excited! Why? Because they're off to Junior Conductor's Academy in Laramidia, to try to become Junior Conductors First Class. Buddy has a feeling he's going to be a star in class, until he meets Dennis Deinocheirus - a kid who knows even more dinosaur facts than he does! Can Buddy get over his disappointment that he's not the smartest kid in class, and make friends with Dennis (who seems like he's having trouble making friends on his own)? "Junior Conductors Academy: Part Two" - Now that Buddy and Dennis are friends, they have to work together (with the other kids) in order to pass a series of tests. If they succeed, they'll receive their Junior Conductors First Class pins! But standing in the way of their success is the most challenging instructor of all... Thurston Troodon! Educational Objectives -- Deinocheirus, from the Ornithomimosaur family of theropods in the late cretaceous, had some of the longest arms of any bipedal dinosaur. Also, it's not always easy to make friends with someone you don't understand, but if you take the time and make the effort, it might not be as hard as you think.
