In our great American experience, we have romantic notions about motels. No, not those romantic notions--rather the romance of the open road, a haven house for the tired traveler, a respite for a night, escape on the weary journey from here to there. German-born filmmaker Christian Blackwood looks askance at this phenomenon in a 90-minute study, "Motel," one of the PBS "P.O.V." series. It airs tonight at 10 on KCET Channel 28 and KPBS Channel 15.

There are five very different films left in the brisk "P.O.V." series airing Tuesday nights on PBS, including a heavily awarded one, "Best Boy," which may make you question the whole matter of a documentarian's privilege. Also in this batch is Errol Morris' "Gates of Heaven," (Aug. 30) which grew, actually, from a dare, spiraling outward from a newspaper clipping into one of the most telling and bizarre bits of Americana imaginable.

U.S. District Court Judge William Gray ruled Tuesday that NEC Electronics Corp. did not infringe on Intel Corp.'s copyright in the latest development in a 4 1/2-year dispute over microprocessors. Gray, a Los Angeles federal judge asked to decide the landmark legal fight, said that the microcode in Japan-based NEC's V20/30/40/50 microprocessors did not infringe the copyright Intel alleged it had in the microcode for its 8086/8088 chips.

Public television viewers nationwide will get an intimate look at the Antelope Valley tonight in a documentary that focuses on the strains that living in a distant bedroom suburb imposed on two women and a teen-age girl. In "Home Economics," filmmaker Jenny Cool paints a sharply focused portrait of stressed-out suburbanites--one of them her former sister-in-law--who pay a steep personal price for homeownership.

In this country's agonizing debate over the abortion issue, one of the most powerful symbols associated with the anti-abortion movement is a photo of an aborted fetus preserved in a bottle. Abortion-rights advocates counter with the unforgettable photo of Geraldine (Gerri) Santoro, who died in 1964 following an illegal, botched abortion. Her story is told in an hourlong documentary, "Leona's Sister Gerri," airing Thursday at 10 p.m. as part of the "P.O.V." series on KCET Channel 28.
