Why the AV version? Because it provides additional usage options for PBS videos. AV versions come with limited performance rights so they can be shown in classrooms, at PTA meetings, during after school programs, and transmitted on a closed-circuit system within a building or on a single campus. They also can be enjoyed in admission-free public screenings, which also makes them ideal for use by library patrons and businesses involved in community clubs and organizations.

Description

  • This month FRONTLINE's monthly magazine program investigates -

    The Silence - Producer Tom Curran and reporter Mark Trahant examine a little-known chapter of the Catholic Church sex abuse story: decades of abuse of Native Americans by priests and church workers in Alaska. The Silence shows how the isolation of the villages and the absolute authority of the church over the Native population created an atmosphere where molestation could go unchecked and unreported.

    Flying Cheaper - Who's fixing your plane? In Flying Cheaper, FRONTLINE correspondent Miles O'Brien investigates a growing trend--the outsourcing of major airline repair work to independent maintenance operations and a pattern of questionable maintenance practices.

    Updates - Closing the hour, correspondent Miles O'Brien presents a news update on Flying Cheaper. This episode also includes a follow-up on the story of Chinese artist and activist Ai Weiwei, who was taken into custody by government authorities days after FRONTLINE's March 29, 2011 newsmagazine profile of him broadcast, as part of a larger crackdown on artists, bloggers, and human-rights advocates.
