LPB E-News!

SO MANY SHOWS YOU DON'T WANT TO MISS THIS WEEK ON LPB:

LPB

(Wednesday night at 7, Louisiana Public Square tackles the question: How does Louisiana determine if someone is a danger to themselves or others?)

Tonight at 7, see back-to-back episodes of "Vintage" Antiques Roadshow, first from Salt Lake City and then from Milwaukee. At 9, on Death in Paradise, Dwayne and Fidel must solve an apparently impossible murder of a local diver.

Was Al Capone the quintessential self-made American man, a ruthless killer or both? His name sparks images of pin-stripe suits and bloody violence, but why do Americans continue to be fascinated by this man? Find out Tuesday night at 7 on Al Capone: Icon. At 8, History Detectives Special Investigations tackles Who Killed Jimmy Hoffa?

How does Louisiana determine if someone is a danger to themselves or others? How difficult is it to intervene if an afflicted individual refuses treatment? Are prisons adequately prepared to handle mentally ill offenders? What services exist in the state for persons with mental health issues and have funding cuts reduced their availability? Louisiana Public Square searches for answers to these questions and more Wednesday at 7 with Defining Dangerous.

Thursday at 7, a man who is foretold of his death asks Father Brown to look after his estranged wife when he is gone. Father Brown is followed by The Bletchley Circle, Midsomer Murders, and Inspector George Gently.

"S" IS FOR SHOPLPB & MORE

LPB Look under "S" on ShopLPB. You'll find a number of great programs. Signpost to Freedom: The 1953 Baton Rouge Bus Boycott is a one hour documentary that recounts the circumstances and events that led to the nation's first large-scale boycott protesting segregation and then examines its impact on the evolution of grassroots civil rights activism across the country during the early years of America's Civil Rights Movement.

Southern: The Human Jukebox tells the story of consummate show band which has played at Super Bowls, Rose Parades, and many other national events.

Step by Step: Kids Trimming Down is a six part series of reports designed to help children live healthier lives. About 25 percent of American children (about 9 million) are overweight. 15-percent are severely overweight or obese. The obesity epidemic is placing children at a much higher risk for type II diabetes, heart disease, joint and breathing problems, as well as certain cancers.
