            No writer understands the border culture between Mexico and the United States more intimately than Luis Alberto Urrea, this week’s guest on an encore broadcast of Moyers & Company. His own life is the stuff of great novels. Son of a Mexican father and Anglo mother, Urrea grew up first in Tijuana and then just across the border in San Diego. Over the years he has produced a series of acclaimed novels, including The Hummingbird’s Daughter, The Devil’s Highway, and his latest, Queen of America – each a rich and revealing account of the people of the borderlands that join and separate our two nations. Earlier this year, a number of books were removed from Tucson, Arizona classrooms when the Tucson school district eliminated a Mexican-American studies program on the accusation it was “divisive.” The program included references to Urrea’s work. Urrea talks with Bill Moyers about that episode as he unfolds the modern reality of life on the border. Three of Urrea’s books were among scores of others removed from classrooms earlier this year when the Tucson school district eliminated Mexican-American studies on the accusation it was “divisive.” But there’s no ban on ideas in Bill’s studio, and Urrea talks with Bill Moyers about that episode as he unfolds the modern reality of life on the border.

                We all know about China's rampant economy, but what about it's booming illegal drug trade? With unprecedented access to China's drug squads this doc uncovers the massive illicit smuggling across China's borders, the country's rocketing drug taking and how it has become a key source of illegal narcotics for neighbouring countries. With drugs exploding out of a newly relaxed Myanmar, a ravenous developing economy, a new and ever increasing drugs culture, and the super-profits that come from the markets in developed countries; it's become a social and legal time bomb for Chinese authorities.
