Global Voices  "Motherland Afghanistan"  One in seven Afghan women currently dies in childbirth. MOTHERLAND AFGHANISTAN introduces the women behind these devastating statistics.

After The Harvest: Fighting Hunger in the Coffeelands   Coffee farmers in Chiapas, Mexico greet the rainy months between May and September with a mix of hope and trepidation. Consistent rainfall is vital to their crops, but too much water makes their rural dirt roads impassable. The price of beans and corn goes up, just when income from the coffee harvest is depleted. D

Independent Lens  "Summer Pasture"  In the collective imagination of Tibet, nomads traditionally occupy a dual role - romanticized as embodying the purest form of Tibetan identity and mocked as being backward, uncivilized and inferior. Shot in the high grasslands of eastern Tibet, this film offers a rare window into a highly insular community of nomads seldom seen by outsiders.G

8:00 am 
Frontline  "The Meth Epidemic"  FRONTLINE, in association with The Oregonian, investigates the ongoing meth problem in America: the devastating impact on individuals, families and communities and the state-by-state battles to make pseudoephedrine a prescription drug, a strategy that's led to significant improvement in Oregon.G

Outdoor Idaho  "Eating Local"  Most of our food travels about 1,500 miles before it ever reaches our kitchen tables. But there are a growing number of food producers and consumers who prefer to eat locally grown food; they say it's healthier and tastier. Today, more than 50 farmers markets operate throughout the state, allowing farmers and consumers to meet and learn from each other. It's a trend that harkens back to a simpler time, when communities supported local farmers and people knew where their food came from. Outdoor Idaho explores the growing fascination with eating local.G

10:30 am 
Dialogue  "STEM Roadmap"  This week on Dialogue, host Joan Cartan-Hansen talks with two STEM Summit leaders, Kathleen Bergin, National Science Foundation Program Director from the division of Math and Science Partnership and Marilyn Whitney, Communication and Legislative Affairs Chief from the Idaho State Board of Education. Cartan-Hansen and her guests will talk about how they see Idaho's classrooms changing, how to make math and science more appealing to students and how to support teachers.G
