Watch Next Week’s FRONTLINE—Tonight
Kind Hearted Woman is an unforgettable portrait of Robin Charboneau—a single mother and Ogala Sioux woman fighting to heal from sexual and domestic abuse and build a better life for her and her family.
This remarkable story doesn’t air until April 1 and 2 — but tonight at 7 pm E.T., you can join FRONTLINE and Independent Lens for a special online advance screening of the first 30 minutes from night one.
We’ll be joined by Robin herself, as well as filmmaker David Sutherland. You’ll be able to ask them questions throughout the screening.
You won’t want to miss this very special event from FRONTLINE and Independent Lens.

Just found out this documentary is airing on PBS tonight. I strongly recommend watching it if you can. [my 2012 review]
In 2001, 15-year-old Andy Williams opened fire at his high school, killing two classmates and wounding 13. What drove Williams to commit such an act?
Science correspondent Miles O’ Brien spoke with Williams and his father to gain insight into the mind of a rampage killer. Watch the interviews here
The four main midwives on “Call the Midwife”:
Jessica Raine as Jenny Lee
Miranda Hart as Chummy Browne
Helen George as Trixie Franklin
Byrony Hannah as Cynthia Miller
This show has easily replaced Downton Abbey in my heart. CHUMMY!!
As politicians weigh new gun-control legislation in the wake of Friday’s brutal shooting in Newtown, Conn., FRONTLINE spoke with [Jeffrey] Toobin, author of The Oath, about what he describes as “the conservative re-casting of the Second Amendment” and whether potential new gun control laws could conflict with it.
Every time I post something from Frontline I wish they were on Tumblr already.

THIS MAKES MY WEEK (and it’s only Monday)
I just happened to catch this Pati’s Mexican Table show on PBS Create yesterday evening and I loved it. Pati has such a wonderful rapport with the camera, and everything she made looked delicious. Even the squash salad she fixed looked delectable, and I usually dislike squash!
