PACIFIC HEARTBEAT
Visions in the Dark: The Life of Pinky Thompson

 

This film is a Hawaiian story of pain, promise, challenge, triumph and leadership. Sustaining a serious eye wound in Normandy during WWII that left him in the dark for two years, Myron “Pinky” Thompson emerged with a clear vision of his purpose in life. Thompson would go on to be a social worker, mentor and revered leader in the Native Hawaiian community who left a legacy of positive social change, pride in Pacific heritage and a strong sense of native identity among Hawaiians that flourishes today.

Presidential Address

 

President Donald Trump will deliver a televised address Monday on how the U.S. will proceed in the nation’s 16-year war in Afghanistan.

 

Trump met with his national security team, including Defense Secretary James Mattis, on Friday at Camp David, Maryland, to discuss military strategy in Afghanistan. The president took to Twitter on Saturday to say that the talks with military leaders led to “many decisions made, including on Afghanistan.” The president did not offer any clues into the agreed-upon strategy, but several media outlets have indicated that Trump may announce continued U.S. presence in the country.

AMERICAN EXPERIENCE
Jimmy Carter

 

Revisit the life of the Georgia peanut farmer who rose to become our 39th president. The film traces his rapid ascent in politics, dramatic fall from grace, unexpected resurrection and post-presidential success as a humanitarian.

 

Dick Cavett’s Watergate

 

From 1972 to 1974, as the Watergate scandal unfolded, television host Dick Cavett was at the forefront of national TV coverage, interviewing nearly every major Watergate figure. In this unique opportunity to mark the 40th anniversary of a defining moment in American history, witness Watergate through the words of the people who lived it: from the botched burglary at the Democratic National Headquarters; to the must-see TV of the daily Congressional Watergate hearings; to the ongoing behind-the-scenes battle between the White House and The Dick Cavett Show, culminating with the resignation of President Nixon on August 9, 1974.
