American Masters: Billie Jean King
To commemorate the 40th anniversaries of both the infamous Billie Jean King / Bobby Riggs tennis match -- the Battle of the Sexes -- and the launch of the Women's Tennis Association, this film looks back to the 12-year old southern California girl who played tennis on public courts, observed disparity and unfairness and, as she soared athletically, never stopped trying to remedy the situation.
Is School Enough?
This program examines a new frontier that could reshape education --- the importance of breaking out of the classroom and connecting students into the wider world.  As one expert puts it, there's a new understanding that school should not just be preparation for life --- but "life itself."
Last Tango in Halifax
Enjoy an uplifting comedy-drama about romance and second chances. Childhood sweethearts Alan (Derek Jacobi) and Celia (Anne Reid), both widowed and in their 70s, fall for each other all over again when they are reunited after nearly 60 years.
Dirty Work: The Story of Elsie's Farm
Dirty Work: The Story of Elsie's Farm is about an impossible, perhaps quixotic dream to take an old farm, invest it with new ideas and grow a community. Community supported agriculture; what does it take? Who are the people that make it happen? It's a film about getting your hands dirty, doing work you believe in, and planting the seeds of a future even at the risk of breaking your heart.
