Death by Fire

Did Texas execute an innocent man? Several controversial death penalty cases are currently under examination in Texas and in other states, but it's the 2004 execution of Cameron Todd Willingham-convicted for the arson deaths of his three young children-that's now at the center of the national debate. With unique access to those closest to the case, FRONTLINE examines the Willingham conviction in light of new science that raises doubts about whether the fire at the center of the case was really arson at all. The film meticulously examines the evidence used to convict Willingham, provides an in-depth portrait of those most impacted by the case, and explores the explosive implications of the execution of a possibly innocent man.

Tough Justice: Texas Style

This BBC program joins Michael Gove - the man in charge of British prisons - on a fact-finding mission in Texas. "Hang 'em high" Texas is not the first place you might look for lessons in criminal justice, as it executes more people and locks up more offenders than anywhere else in America. But now this conservative state is the unlikely center of a rehabilitation-led revolution in prison reform that's sweeping through the US. Crime is down, prisoner numbers have fallen and on top of this, they've cut costs. Are there valuable lessons to be learned here, and are UK politicians really ready to dole out some Texan justice?

Hailing from New York City, Rob Weiner was Donald Judd's assistant until his death, helping the master to build his desert dream, the Chinati Foundation.

Julie Speed

Julie Speed's art can be called many names- provocative? "Horrifi-comical?" Renaissance meets freak show? The great thing is, she wouldn't care about fitting into a box. Instead, 60-something-year-old Julie Speed prefers to discuss the invisible bridges between her art and Donald Judd's, and how Marfa has influenced her art since she moved into the former prison that has become her studio.

From the geodesic dome he calls home, Adam explains what life is like when you decide to launch into a classic business when you're an artist -and what it feels like to be the inventor of the "marfa-lafel.

Sam Schonzeit

Having made a name with, among others, his postcard subscription service, Sam Schonzeit is tempted to call Marfa home nowadays. Unless...
