The film looks at another bloody Jewish war against Rome, the second revolt, assessing its impact on the Christianity movement. The broadcast documents the extraordinary events of the second and third centuries in which Christianity grew from a small Jewish sect to an official religion of the Roman Empire. D

Xmas Without China   Tom Xia emigrated from mainland China to California at age eight. A series of Chinese toy recalls forces Xia's neighbors, the Joneses, to have their son tested for lead poisoning. With China's assent to world superpower status heating up American fears, Xia challenges the Joneses to make it through the Christmas season without any Chinese products, beginning a journey to find American identity amongst all the American media hype, Chinese nationalist propaganda and cultural misunderstandings.

Moyers & Company  "The Pope, Poverty, and Poetry"  In just a few months, Pope Francis, the first in history to take the name of the patron saint of the poor, has proven to be one of the most outspoken pontiffs in recent history, especially when it comes to income inequality. He has criticized the "widening gap between those who have more and those who must be content with the crumbs." And in his recent "apostolic exhortation" on "the economy of exclusion and inequality," he said: "The worship of the ancient golden calf has returned in a new and ruthless guise in the idolatry of money and the dictatorship of an impersonal economy lacking a truly human purpose.

Outdoor Idaho  "Hometown Ski Hills"  Community ski hills are scattered throughout Idaho, each with its own "field of dreams" story to tell. We profile three of them - Bogus Basin near Boise; Little Ski Hill by McCall; and Pomerelle near Albion - to learn what makes each of these ski areas unique.G

America ReFramed  "Plagues and Pleasures on the Salton Sea"  Once known as the California Riviera, the Salton Sea is now called one of America's worst ecological disasters: a fetid, stagnant, salty lake, that coughs up dead fish and birds by the thousands in frequent die-offs that occur. However, amongst the ruins of this man-made mistake, a few remaining eccentrics (a roadside nudist, a religious folk artist, a Hungarian revolutionary, and real estate speculators) struggle to keep a remodeled version of the original Salton Sea dream alive. Accidentally created by an engineering error in 1905, reworked in the 50's as a world class vacation destination for the rich and famous, suddenly abandoned after a series of hurricanes, floods, and fish die-offs, and finally almost saved by Congressman Sonny Bono, the Salton Sea has a bittersweet past.

Shakespeare Lost, Shakespeare Found   This is the fascinating story behind the bold 20-year project by world-renowned Shakespeare scholar Dr. Gary Taylor to recreate The History of Cardenio (1613), a lost work written by William Shakespeare and his early collaborator, John Fletcher. The History of Cardenio remains shrouded in mystery because the 400-year-old play did not survive the ravages of time, but was resurrected by de-constructing Double Falsehood, Lewis Theobald's 1727 adaptation of it. This process included painstaking research of centuries-old texts and cutting-edge computer microanalysis of each author's writing styles.G
