    Brown vs. the Board of Education was the 1954 Supreme Court decision that declared the old "separate but equal" policies of many school boards unconstitutional. The Brown case triggered numerous court mediated desegregation policies around the country, all designed to get equal education to all students. Producer Kathy Baron looks at school districts in California, fifty years after the Brown decision. What, in fact, does an equal education look like?

    Gamma rays are the most intense form of radiation. As the Cold War focused on the spread of nuclear war, a U.S. spy satellite searching for clandestine nuclear weapons tests detected frequent, but brief, bursts of powerful gamma-rays, a possible signal of a hydrogen bomb explosion. Interviewing some of the original researchers of this phenomenon, Producer David Barrett Wilson takes us from that starting point through the beginning of scientific research into these bizarre surges of energy.

    The Human Papillomavirus, or HPV, is a common virus that touches billions of human beings in one way or another — from a tiny wart on the hand to invasive cancer. HPV can be found worldwide, yet most people who are infected never show any symptoms. The virus can "hide" for years from a person's immune system, with no apparent ill effects, and then awaken and trigger deadly disease.

    How can a 20-year-old man who is blind, autistic and still believes in Santa Claus play the most sophisticated improvisational jazz piano? How can a child who appears withdrawn and mentally disabled gaze at a building for only a minute then draw an exact reproduction on paper? Producer Stephen Smith explores the mysterious powers of savants — people with profound mental disabilities who develop an island of genius in music, mathematics or art.

    The world of biology is a messy business. But the study of reproduction and evolution is crucial to understanding the nature of all things animal, vegetable, and even digital. The code that is used to build computer programs is much like our own DNA. And as it turns out, not only can computer programs have sex and reproduce, but they can also lie, cheat, steal, copy, infect and gang up on each other. In short, they can act a lot like humans, which is good news for evolutionary biologists.

    In conversations about the use of technology in schools, what you'll often hear is: Once we have a cadre of young teachers and administrators who've grown up with technology, computer use in schools will take off. This program examines that premise by following a young teacher, Brian Mason (7th grade American History) as he begins his second year in the classroom.

    At the turn of this century some 5,000 refugee children arrived in the U.S. every year, penniless and alone, seeking asylum and freedom. A third were locked up - some alongside violent offenders. Until recently, many were deported back to traumatic home situations. The U.S. government does not provide them with lawyers, yet whether they can stay legally is decided in court. Reporter Gillian Karp follows two of these children, Juan Pablo from Honduras and Jimmy from Punjab, India. Why did they leave?

    "Truth is a pathless land" said the Indian spiritual leader and iconoclast J. Krishnamurti. He taught pacifism and harmony; he sought freedom through a transformation of the human psyche. People flocked to follow him as he moved across continents and through much of the twentieth century, spreading his word. He never wanted to be called a guru and yet his followers (who included Hollywood film stars) insisted on it.

    Producer Judith Kampfner is on her own journey to be, if not the perfect mother-in-law, then at least one that breaks stereotypes and avoids common pitfalls. In the process, she interviews other mother-in-laws, many from different backgrounds and asks them what mistakes they made and how they work to establish a comfortable relationship with their offspring’s spouse. And is it important or even possible to become friends?

    Important clues to the origins of the solar system come from asteroids, comets and meteors, believed to be remnants from the early solar system. Until the early 1990s, the only information obtained on these bodies was through Earth-based observations, either by observing them in orbit or by examining the remnants that reach us here on Earth. Producer Dan Grossman investigates the history of our understanding of comets.

    Laura Rothenberg is 21 years old, but, as she likes to say, she already had her mid-life crisis a couple of years ago; and even then it was a few years late. Laura has cystic fibrosis, a genetic disorder that affects the lungs and other organs. People with CF live an average of 30 years. Producer Joe Richman gave Laura a tape recorder. Laura kept an audio diary of her battle with the disease and her attempts to lead a normal life with lungs than often betrayed her. Laura died on March 20, 2003.

    Two 17-year-old students were gunned down by a fellow 15-year-old student in the hallways of Jefferson High School in Brooklyn, New York. Although unusual at school, it was not an uncommon occurrence in East New York City, an area where families shared their community with drug dealers. The year was 1991. Producer Maria Hinojosa talks to kids who had no protection against the violence that surrounded them, other than toting guns.

    The summer of 2002 featured the worst drought in Arizona in nearly a century. It triggered a fire that burned over a half-million acres of National Forest land. It dried up watering holes and forced ranchers to cut their stock by up to a third. Wells ran dry and municipalities had to open water stations, much like gas stations. During that summer, producer Lex Gillespie toured Arizona and spoke with firefighters, park service personnel, farm families and community leaders about the impact of the drought.

Join us for a tour of taxi drivers -- the rough-edged New York City cabbies, and the traditional, vintage hacks of London. It’s never predictable – who might be the next stranger to inhabit your space?

    Two writers in Chicago foretold their own deaths. Guy Izzi wrote thrillers but his own end was stranger than anything he had described in his fiction. It seemed to be a continuation of one of his stories. Was he being followed by a cult that he had depicted in his last novel? The Chicago Police find it a mystery. Equally as puzzling is the case of Professor Ioan Culianu at the University of Chicago Divinity School. He also was found dead at his place of work.

    When Guglielmo Marconi installed a receiving station at St. Johns Newfoundland in November 1901 he probably never realized the full impact of his invention. From that amazing feat that pulled sound across the horizon, radio is now as remarkable as wallpaper. The people of St. Johns are determined to celebrate this most ubiquitous of mediums on the 100th anniversary of the transmission of the first signal across the Atlantic.

Over the course of a year, two long car trips, multiple moves, and new schools, producer Shannon Heffernan finds out how Hope's family lives while serving "Time on the Outside."
