The Queen's Possessions (56 min)

The Queen has some surprising possessions. Among them are Westminster Abbey and the Chapels Royal. These are "peculiars of the crown" -- as are the Channel Islands, where they still call Her Majesty the Duke of Normandy to remind outsiders that they were with William the Conqueror on the winning side at the Battle of Hastings. The queen also owns the Tower of London -- part of a collection of Historic Royal Palaces. Not forgetting the Royal Collection -- to which she has added nearly 150 portraits over the past six decades -- follow the process used to create one of the most unusual.

Traveller (56 min)

The queen is head of the 16 realms that make up the Commonwealth. In Perth, Western Australia, Queen Elizabeth is on tour before opening the Heads of Government Meeting, which is especially important for the monarchy. The Commonwealth countries are being asked to change the rules of succession so that a first-born girl may inherit the crown. If it's approved, it will be the single biggest change to the monarchy for centuries. At the age of 85, the queen remains undaunted by long-haul travel -- as this program shows.

Dec 3, 3:59am Red Power Energy
(56 min)

From a historically passive role in mineral extraction that frequently left their resource-rich reservations either leased out for pennies on the dollar or contaminated by environmental degradation and Federal mismanagement, Native people are in the midst of an extraordinary resurgence. They are challenging long-held stereotypes, fighting for the sovereign right to control their lands and develop their natural and mineral resources - however they choose. RED POWER ENERGY is a provocative film told from the American Indian perspective that reframes today's complex energy debate. Can energy development on tribal lands empower a people while powering the nation? And what impact will it have on their culture, economy and the environment? These Native-told energy stories offer a rare insight into the ideological battle shaping modern Indian country and further advances a deeper understanding of American Indian culture, which is too often under-reported, misunderstood or overlooked.

Cuban Trade (24 min)

In 2014, after a five-decade freeze that lasted longer than the Cold War, President Barack Obama announced the United States would begin reestablishing diplomatic relations with Cuba. But last week's passing of former Cuba leader Fidel Castro is a reminder that the U.S. embargo that went into effect after he seized power remains in effect for most economic sectors. While renewed trade could have economic payoffs for both countries, the Cuban government also has been especially slow to approve new deals. On Saturday, NewsHour Weekend Special Correspondent Amy Guttman reports how, two years on, U.S.-Cuban trade still has a long way to go.
