"Jesse Owens: American Experience" -- This fascinating new documentary recalls the legendary track and field athlete who wreaked havoc with Adolf Hitler's goal of using the 1936 Berlin Olympics as a showcase for the superiority of Aryan athletes. In winning four gold medals at the Games, Owens captivated the world while infuriating the Nazis. But when he returned to America, he couldn't even ride in the front of a bus and would go on to confront overt racism and financial hardship. The film, which includes insights from Owens' daughters Beverly and Marlene, also taps into the fleeting quality of fame and the way we tend to idolize athletes when they suit our purpose, but forget them once they don't. 7 p.m. Tuesday, KUED Channel 7.
