Grit (10 p.m., PBS / UNC-TV) - This award-winning POV documentary, directed by Cynthia Wade and Sasha Friedlander, recounts the tragic story of the tsunami of toxic mud that displaced over 60,000 people in Indonesia more than a decade ago. The mud slide, which wiped out 16 villages, transformed a once thriving region into a desolate wasteland. While trying to rebuild their lives, the survivors band together to fight for justice against Lapindo, a multinational company whose natural gas drilling is suspected of unleashing the flow of hot sludge.
