Here are some previous Think Tank programs that may be of interest.

The Ethiopian Exodus, Part. 2  (aired 4/5/2007)
At the end of 1984 and in May of 1991 the Israeli government orchestrated 2 massive covert operations to transport virtually the entire Ethiopian Jewish community to Israel. The first was codenamed Operation Moses; a six week campaign to secretly transport 8000 Ethiopian Jews to Israel. The second was Operation Solomon; an unprecedented mass evacuation by airlift of over 14000 Ethiopian Jews in less than 26 hours. A new feature film titled Live and Become dramatizes these awe-inspiring events and explores the challenges faced by the transplanted Ethiopians as they struggled to integrate into Israeli society.

Civil Rights, Then and Now, Part Two  (aired 4/6/2006)
America’s Civil Rights Movement was the work of many people, but one name stands out: the Reverend Martin Luther King, Jr. His bold and courageous action opened the eyes of the nation to racial injustice. Coupled with President Lyndon B. Johnson’s passionate politicking, the Voting Rights Act of 1965 became the law of the land. It added millions of blacks to voter rolls but Dr. King was a controversial man. Did his assassination mark the end of the Civil Rights Movement, or the start of a new era? What is the future of the black vote and will it be decisive in the 2006 and particularly the 2008 elections?

The Blending of America  (aired 1/15/2004)
Author and journalist Richard Rodriguez discusses race in America and his book, "Brown: The Last Discovery of America." Drawing on his own experiences as the son of Mexican immigrants, Richard Rodriguez challenges conventional notions of race and identity. Occasioned by the U.S. Census Bureau prediction that Hispanics were destined to replace African-Americans as the country’s largest minority, his latest book is a reflection on the cultural associations of the color brown.

The Israeli Economy  (aired 5/21/1998)
After decades of socialism, Israel has been moving towards a free market. On the 50th anniversary of the founding of the state of Israel, Think Tank travels to Jerusalem and Tel Aviv to take a look at the state of the Israeli economy.
