The golden age of railroading may be behind us, but the freight train remains the backbone of the American economy. This program visits what is considered the greatest freight transportation system in the world, the Union Pacific's Bailey yard, and a pit stop for much of the nation's freight on its journey across the continent.

Given he has been earning a solid living as a session musician and producer since 1973, Seasick Steve’s ornery-old-hobo shtick can be a little hard to take, but by God it has worked. This 75-year-old is about to fill Wembley Arena with nothing more than his three-stringed guitar and throaty tales of hopping freight trains. Keepin’ The Horse Between Me And The Ground is the eighth album by Seasick Steve aka Stephen Wold and it strays out of his usual raw blues patch while maintaining the unadorned simplicity that is at the heart of his appeal.

Slovak director Juraj Jakubisko resurfaces after a hiatus with this potent drama about Pavel (Josef Matus) an independent young man who defies the conventional wisdom. He rides freight trains wherever he feels like going and one day hops off a freight to land in a village he likes. It does not take him long to fall for Helena (Jana Siniakova) the divorced daughter of the head of the village, and though she reciprocates his feelings, her father is against their relationship. Ignoring his opposition, Pavel gets people together to help him build a house for Helena and her little boy. The trouble is, Pavel also ignores propriety in obtaining materials for the house and on top of everything, Helena's father decides he is not going to sit back and accept what is going on.

This debut collection of short stories are united by their exploration of the great American mythological drama. Tim Lane's characters exist on the margins of society–alienated, floating in the void between hope and despair. Visually reminiscent of Al Feldstein and Charles Burns, Lane's idiosyncratic and tense realism weaves between comic absurdity, nightmarish naturalism, chemical hallucination, and ecstatic terror. Lane's America is a haunted Coney Island, made up of lost characters haplessly shooting themselves in the face, and hopping freight trains in search of Elvis.
