 9:30pm             TREASURES OF THE GILCREASE “Charles Russell: Western Story Teller” – Charles Russell remains one of the most significant American artists of the early 20th century.  His depictions of cowboys, American Indians, historical figures and Western fauna are among the most well-known portrayals of the late 19th and early 20th century Western experience. Copies of this program can be purchased through the Gilcrease Museum in Tulsa.


Tuesday, July 26

8pm                  FRONTLINE “The Pot Republic” -- The country's oldest, largest and most wide-open marijuana market is investigated in California. This is a *new* episode.

9:30pm             POV “Mugabe and the White African” -- This program, much of which was filmed clandestinely, tells an alarming story from one of the world's most troubled nations. In Zimbabwe, de facto dictator Robert Mugabe has unleashed a "land reform" program aimed at driving whites from the country through violence and intimidation. One proud "white African," however, has challenged Mugabe with human rights abuses under international law. The courage Michael Campbell and his family display as they defend their farm -- in court and on the ground -- makes for a film as inspiring as it is harrowing.


 Thursday, July 28

7pm                  STATELINE #502 “Missing Pieces” – Looks at two of the state's most widely publicized, and arguably, most frustrating cold cases.  In both, suspects were charged and taken to court.  In both, the suspects walked away from court, but were escorted back to prison on previous convictions.  In both, the truth died when the suspects died in prison. Decades have passed since those case files collected the first dust mote. (Original Broadcast Date: 10/16/03)
