KRCB http://krcb.org/ Mon, 01 Sep 2014 11:33:17 GMT FeedCreator 1.8.0-dev (info@mypapit.net) KRCB http://krcb.org/staff-picks/masterpiece-mystery-breathless breathless 200 2In this stylish story of a dark secret set amid the complexities of the sexual revolution of the early 1960s, Jack Davenport stars as a brilliant London surgeon at a time when doctors were treated like gods and acted the part. 

When the brilliant Dr. Otto Powell takes over a surgery before his junior colleague, Dr. Richard Truscott, botches it, Truscott's long-simmering resentment is compounded. But the encounter is lost on the powerful surgeon who whisks his striking new nurse Angela off to assist him, against her principles, on a highly illegal procedure: abortion. Incurring her wrath for making her complicit, Otto – trapped in a loveless marriage, bound to his glamorous wife Elizabeth by a dangerous secret – is ablaze with attraction for the young nurse who is determined to resist temptation. 

Starring alongside Jack Davenport (Pirates of the Caribbean, Smash) in this stylish story of a dark secret amid the complexities of the sexual revolution are Zoe Boyle (Downton Abbey), Catherine Steadman (Mansfield Park), Iain Glen (Downton Abbey), Natasha Little (Case Histories), Oliver Chris (Sharpe’s Challenge), Joanna Page (Love Actually), and Shaun Dingwall (Touching Evil).

KRCB http://krcb.org/staff-picks/shift-change shift 200 2Shift Change is a documentary film by veteran award-winning filmmakers Melissa Young and Mark Dworkin. It tells the little known stories of employee owned businesses that compete successfully in today's economy while providing secure, dignified jobs in democratic workplaces. With the long decline in U.S. manufacturing and today's economic crisis, millions have been thrown out of work, and many are losing their homes. The usual economic solutions are not working, so some citizens and public officials are ready to think outside of the box, to reinvent our failing economy in order to restore long term community stability and a more egalitarian way of life. There is growing interest in firms that are owned and managed by their workers. Such firms tend to be more profitable and innovative, and more committed to the communities where they are based. Yet the public has little knowledge of their success, and the promise they offer for a better life.

KRCB http://krcb.org/staff-picks/from-billions-to-none-the-passenger-pigeon-s-flight pigeon 200 2The centenary of this recent extinction offers a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for this film to sharply focus new attention on habitat conservation and species survival—and help us avoid the fate of the passenger pigeon for future species. With cutting-edge CGI animation techniques, From Billions to None will recreate the glory of passenger pigeons in flight as well as the ways in which our 19th century ancestors destroyed them all—with ruthless, no-limits shooting. The film will highlight the important lessons of the past to offer solutions to the immediate challenges species face. You'll see how exciting successes have been achieved in sustaining declining species populations.

KRCB http://krcb.org/staff-picks/frontline-separate-but-unequal sepuneq 200 2Sixty years after the Supreme Court declared separate schools for black and white children unconstitutional, Frontline examines the comeback of segregation in America. The film focuses on Baton Rouge, Louisiana, where a group of mostly white parents are trying to form their own city with its own separate school district, leaving behind a population of black students. Through the battle in Baton Rouge, Frontline shows the growing racial divide in American schools and the legacy of Brown v. Board of Education. Also this hour: Frontline updates the story of Omarina Cabrera, a struggling student from the Bronx who today is excelling at an elite prep school in New England because of a groundbreaking program to stem the high school dropout crisis. Drawing on the 2012 film, Middle School Moment, Frontline follows Omarina's achievements and challenges and shows the contrasts to her twin brother, who has remained in the Bronx.
