    Nature [#3213] The Sagebrush Sea One of the most overlooked ecosystems on the continent consists of a massive sea of sagebrush that stretches across 11 states in the American West. This spartan yet spectacular landscape supports more than 170 species of hardscrabble birds and mammals. Among those that have adapted to survive here are birds found nowhere else: greater sage-grouse that lead remarkable lives mostly hidden in the sage. But once each year, males emerge for days on end to strut and display as prospective mates for discriminating females, which mate with only one or two of them. Females must then raise their chicks on their own, with little food, water or shelter to sustain them, while plenty of predators wait for their smallest mistake. Today, they must also contend with wells and pipelines tapping the resources buried deep below. The sagebrush and the grouse carry on, but they're losing ground. duration 56:46   STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: none)

    Drugging Our Kids Based on a yearlong San Jose Mercury News investigation, this documentary looks into the excessive use of psychiatric medications in the California foster care system. Directed by Emmy-winning photojournalist Dai Sugano, it combines the powerful stories of three former foster youth, exclusive data analysis, animated graphics and poignant images to reveal how foster care providers have come to rely on a risky but convenient remedy to control the behavior of thousands of troubled kids: numbing them with drugs that are untested on and often not approved for children. From Los Angeles to Humboldt County, reporter Karen de Sa and Sugano interviewed more than 175 people, including three dozen current and former foster youth. One after another gave disturbing accounts of suffering from the drugs' dramatic side effects. Their stories of anguish and upheaval, childhoods lost and remarkable resilience are brought together in this ambitious documentary. duration 26:46   STEREO
