    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?

    In 1990, a group of horseback riders completed a journey from Cheyenne River Reservation in Bridger, South Dakota to Wounded Knee Creek on the Pine Ridge Reservation. The 191 mile journey was a commemoration of the ride of Chief Big Foot and the Minneconjou Lakota in 1890, a ride that culminated in a massacre of most of the riders by the U.S. 7th Calvary. The commemorative ride was designed to teach the next generation about their history, to reflect upon what happened and to mend the hoop.

    Imagine that your parent is your teacher, your siblings are your classmates, and your kitchen is your classroom. Plus, you get to study outside, choose your areas of interest, and do your classwork online. The image of the home-school is changing from detached and reclusive, to engaged and mainstream. And not all home-school education is alike. Home school parent and producer Heather Gattucio examines very different approaches to this alternative education.

    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?

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?

    Over one million Mayan Indians live and work in Southern Mexico, and six Mayan languages continue to thrive there—languages more than 3,000 years old. In the 1950s, anthropologist Robert Laughlin and his wife Mimi arrived in Chiapas, where Laughlin planned to conduct his linguistic research. At that time, he expected to learn the Tzotzil language without too much trouble, and be welcomed into the indigenous culture.

    There is a complicated relationship between African-Americans and Shakespeare. Long a symbol for elite white culture, Shakespeare was used in classroom and community to maintain barriers. Producer Richard Paul talks to Shakespeare historians from the Folger Shakespeare Theater and looks at minstrel show parodies of Shakespeare, color-blind casting of Shakespeare and how African-Americans are interpreting Shakespeare through their own experience.

    "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.

    Earth and its neighboring planets Venus and Mars all began with similar temperatures, mineral compositions, and atmospheric gases that could have led to the formation of life. Earth was the only planet to pull off that trick, while climate change took Venus and Mars in less hospitable directions. It was much like the story of "Goldilocks and the Three Bears"; Mars was too cold, Venus was too hot, but Earth was just right.

    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.
