FROM THIS EPISODE

Main Topic Ken Burn’s new documentary “The Central Park Five"

“The Central Park Five,” now in local theaters, documents two different kinds of crime. First, the rape and beating of a 28-yearold white woman jogger left for dead in April of 1989. Secondly, the conviction and imprisonment of five black and Hispanic kids—aged 14 to 16. They were innocent of that brutal assault and finally exonerated in 2002. The documentary is based on a book by Sarah Burns.

Guests:
Ken Burns, Acclaimed American documentarian who directed such documentaries as “The Civil War”, “Baseball”, “Jazz” and now “The Central Park Five”.

Main Topic The Expo Line Draws A Gold Rush

Metro’s Expo Line is on its way from Culver City to Santa Monica and other parts of the West Side—with the goal of reducing regional traffic congestion. But new train stations are creating gold mines for developers of mixed-use, retail-and-residential complexes—bringing more congestion to places that are already developed. Is “enlightened planning” leading to real-estate profiteering? Should elected officials put on the brakes?
