A Special Night of Autism:

KVCR presents a special night of programs devoted to the growing concern of autism.  At 8:00pm, is Autism: Looking Forward.  California unemployment is currently averaging about 8%, however for adults on the autism spectrum, their unemployment rate is estimated 80%. Autism: Looking Forward will discuss this issue and explore new models and ideas to address the problem and share opportunities for employment and vocational options for adults with ASD. This program will also discuss the issues that families with ASD face when traveling. Travelling by air can be stressful for any family with children, but for families with children with autism the challenges are compounded by extreme behaviors, high anxiety and sensitivity to changes in routine, different smells, sights and other changes in their environment.  At 9:00pm, we follow up with the documentary "Neurotypical", an exploration of autism from the point of view of autistic people themselves.  And at 10:00pm a look at a high school that provides an exceptional environment for students with autism, and how they prepare them for independent living.

From Jesus to Christ - The First Christians Part 2:

The Gospels do not all tell the same story of Jesus because each one is responding to a different audience and circumstances. For example, Matthew's gospel is clearly written for a Jewish Christian audience; it is the most Jewish of all the gospels. During the first century A.D., a growing tension appeared between the emergent Christian groups and their Jewish neighbors. The result was a process of debate, identity, and separation that shaped both religious traditions forever. And there were still other external forces, including a second, devastating Jewish war, the Bar Kochbah revolt, which erupted in 132 C.E.

Tonight at 9:00pm

The Bletchley Circle II:

Alice Merren is in prison awaiting trial for the murder of her former Bletchley Park colleague. Jean, believing Alice is covering for someone, begins to reunite the circle to help establish the innocence of one of their own. The investigation leads to a young woman who seems to have had a relationship with the deceased and in whose home they find documents suggesting a military cover-up of a chemical spill.
