7:00 am 
Global Voices  "Stealing Africa"  How much profit is fair? Ruschlikon is a village in Switzerland with a very low tax rate and very wealthy residents. But it receives more tax revenue than it can use. This is largely thanks to one resident - Ivan Glasenberg, CEO of Glencore, whose copper mines in Zambia are not generating a large bounty tax revenue for the Zambians. D

8:00 am 
Global Voices  "Poor Us: The Animated History of Poverty"  Do we know what poverty is? The poor may always have been with us, but attitudes towards them have changed. Beginning in the Neolithic Age, Ben Lewis's film takes us through the changing world of poverty. You go to sleep, you dream, you become poor through the ages. D

Outdoor Idaho  "Working for Wildlife"  Professionals and volunteers are in forests and fields - even cities - throughout Idaho working to increase knowledge about wildlife and its chances for survival. Cameras capture "deer tackling" in eastern Idaho; follow scientists and volunteers through deep snows to radio collar the seldom-seen elusive wolverine; and visit a woman raising orphan bears in her backyard in Garden City, adjacent to Boise.G

10:30 am 
Dialogue  "Behind The Scenes at Antiques Roadshow"  Host Marcia Franklin talks with Marsha Bemko, the executive producer of Antiques Roadshow, about the program's visit to Boise in 2013, and why those shows led off the new season in January, 2014. The two also discuss the history of the top-rated show on PBS and how she produces the series.G

11:00 am 
Well Read  "Elizabeth Strout, The Burgess Boys"  A tender, tough-minded, loving, and deeply illuminating story about the ties that bind us to family, this is another powerful character study from Pulitzer Prize-winning novelist Strout. D

11:30 am 
Closer to Truth  "How Does Personal Identity Persist Through Time?"  Is the self an illusion? Decades roll by; every molecule of my body changes many times over. Yet I sense myself the same. Not just continuity, but unity. D

12:00 pm 
Global Voices  "Give Us The Money"  How do you change the world? From Live Aid to Make Poverty History, celebrities have become activists against poverty. Bob Geldof and Bono have been the most prominent voices advocating on behalf of the poor. But have their concerts and campaigns really lifted millions out of poverty? Geldof, Bono and Bill Gates speak candidly about how to lobby effectively and how to play to politicians' weaknesses for glitz and popularity. D

Global Voices  "Land Rush"  How do you feed the world? 75% of Mali's population are farmers, but rich, land-hungry nations like China and Saudi Arabia are leasing Mali's land in order to turn large areas into agribusiness farMs. Many Malian peasants do not welcome these efforts, seeing them as yet another manifestation of imperialism. As Mali experiences a military coup, the developers are scared off ? but can Mali's farmers combat food shortages and escape poverty on their own terms?. D

6:00 pm 
Global Voices  "Education Education"  What does an education get you? In ancient times in China, education was the only way out of poverty, in recent times it has been the best way. China's economic boom and talk of the merits of hard work have created an expectation that to study is to escape poverty. But these days China's higher education system only leads to jobs for a few, educating a new generation to unemployment and despair. D

7:00 pm 
Global Voices  "Welcome to the World"  Is it worse to be born poor than to die poor? 130 million babies are born each year, and not one of them decides where they'll be born or how they'll live. In Cambodia, you're likely to be born to a family living on less than $1/day. In Sierra Leone chances of surviving the first year are half those of the worldwide average. D

Nightly Business Report   Tonight on Nightly Business Report, the automakers didn't sell as many cars in December as many had hoped and now some are wondering if the slowing pace of sales will continue in the months ahead.
