Episode #306
Airs Sunday September 21st
On Sunday, NewsHour Weekend reports from Hungary to examine the plight of the Gypsy, or Roma, people amid a slew of housing evictions by the local government -- the latest chapter in a long history of strained relations between the two groups. While local officials maintain the government is working to slowly improve conditions for the ethnic minority, the Roma, on the other hand, say they've been abandoned by it. NewsHour Weekend's Stephen Fee reports from the city of Miskolc where the majority of Roma citizens live in poverty. That, and the weekend's news, online and on-air.

On Saturday, NewsHour Weekend examines how the acquisition of America's largest pork producer by a Chinese company fits into China's plan to modernize its food industry. Even after the Chinese government announced the largest agrarian reforms in world history in an effort to feed its citizens, consumption is still skyrocketing as more people move into the middle class. Now, in the country that consumes half of all the world's pork, the government is tasked with improving the quality and security of its food supply. That, and the weekend's news, online and on-air.

Previously aired Sunday August 31st
On Sunday, NewsHour Weekend examines the Paleo Diet, which has gained popularity in recent years. Advocates of the diet promote eating foods they say are more in line with what our ancient ancestors ate, such as meat and vegetables rather than dairy and grains, which were introduced after the invention of agriculture. But the diet's modern version may not actually give an accurate picture of what our predecessors really ate. Science writer Ann Gibbons joins NewsHour Weekend's Hari Sreenivasan to discuss how to follow the real Paleo Diet. That, and the weekend's news, online and on-air.
