4 segments

Find out why, even though noise can be annoying, it's served as the soundtrack for civilization. Then, we’ll look at how the old New York waterfront became a battleground for the mob. And Yoruba Richen discusses her documentary that looks at why land reform remains a “ticking time bomb” in South Africa. Plus, director Christian Carion discusses “Farewell,” his new feature film based on the life of a disillusioned KGB colonel who took it upon himself to help accelerate the end of the Cold War—and he'll be joined by a former member of the CIA.
