What happens when two great predators come face to face in Yellowstone? The grizzly bear, a loner, ranges far and wide in search of a rich variety of resources. The wolf hunts to survive and finds its strength in speed and teamwork. In every encounter, one has a tactical advantage — but which one, and when? As each remarkable scene unfolds, what emerges is the keen awareness that runs through all of Yellowstone. Elk and eagle, coyote and raven, otter and owl — every creature must assess, decide and act. To fight or to flee?

Carol Burnett: A Woman of Character

AMERICAN MASTERS pays tribute to the incomparable entertainer who transformed herself into a one-woman army of comedic characters: Carol Burnett.

America in the 1960s and 70s was in turmoil. The civil rights struggle, the war in Vietnam and the sexual revolution defined a nation in conflict. But at 10 o’clock every Saturday night, in dorms and dens, in living rooms and bedrooms across the country, Americans watched “The Carol Burnett Show.” For 11 years, the wacky performer yelled like Tarzan and won — and sometimes broke — our hearts with her edgy, always sympathetic, characters. She could fall down a flight of stairs or hold her own in a duet with Julie Andrews.

The 11.7 million Americans searching for work got discouraging news Friday morning when the Labor Department said employers created only 88,000 jobs in March. The weak job growth comes at the same time benefits for the long-term unemployed are shrinking.

The smaller-than-expected increase in payrolls was a big disappointment, coming after a long stretch of much better results. Over the past year, employment growth has averaged 169,000 jobs a month.

Explore the human-rights implications of the country’s least winnable war – the war on drugs. Consider the statistics: More than 40 years since it began, it is the longest conflict in American history. It has resulted in more than 45 million arrests and made the United States the world’s largest jailer. It has fueled armed conflict overseas, devastated poor communities and disproportionately targeted people of color. And yet, drugs are cheaper, stronger and more plentiful than ever.

A federal judge in Brooklyn, N.Y., has ruled that the morning-after pill for emergency contraception must be made available over the counter to girls 16 and under.

The ruling could end a more than decade-long battle over how easy or difficult it should be for teenage girls to obtain emergency contraception. The ruling would also make it easier for older women to obtain the drug because it wouldn't have to be kept behind drugstore counters anymore.

In the face of horrific living conditions, starvation and the threat of deportation to Auschwitz, the Jewish inmates of Terezin concentration camp — artists, musicians, poets and writers — fought back … with art and music. Led by conductor Raphael Schachter, they re-imagined a Catholic liturgical work, Verdi’s Requiem, as a condemnation of the Nazis. Ultimately, they performed for Nazi brass, singing what they dared not say.
