    Mystery of Agatha Christie with David Suchet David Suchet, TV's Poirot, has spent more of his life acting out the plots and dramas created by Agatha Christie than anyone else in the world. He now wants to embark on a journey to learn more about the woman who created him. He learns how she was born in 1890 in Torquay, England and how out of her idyllic childhood in Devon she grew to become master of the sinister world of poisons and murder. From the pastoral ideal of the British country house to the exotic mysteries of the East, her vivid construction of character and place combine to captivate readers by the millions. Suchet learns that it is not just Christie's novels that are shrouded in mystery. He investigates the adultery of her husband. A betrayal that led to her bizarre disappearance in 1926 when she faked her own death and convinced the nation she had succumbed to the same horrendous fate as the victims in her novels. Suchet explores the close links between Christie's extraordinary life and her work and discovers just what it is about this late Victorian woman from Torquay that allowed her to become the bestselling murder mystery writer in history -- a popularity that continues up to the present. duration 56:46   STEREO TVPG

George tries to squirrel-proof the birdhouse, moving it further from the tree trunk, clearing away freestanding objects, and even developing a pulley laundry line system to hang it from. But to no avail - that squirrel can climb - and apparently eat - anything! Why does Jumpy keep taking the seeds? Has his appetite suddenly grown - or maybe they're not all for him?

But when they arrive at Renkins' Farm, they find a mountain of junk piled in the Renkins' living room. There's no way they'll finish the job before the suns goes down, which means no lake for George. While the Man is taking a load to the collection center, George discovers that he can use the ironing board as a lever to launch the junk out of the living room and onto the front yard. Soon, all the pigs, chickens, and squirrels are ducking for cover! George's ingenious invention got all the junk outside, but it's scattered everywhere!

    Washington Week with Gwen Ifill [#5415H] It's less than 2 weeks until Election Day. While voter turnout during midterm elections drops nearly 30% compared with presidential elections, that doesn't mean the stakes are not high this year. In fact, control of the US Senate is at stake.

John Harwood of CNBC and The New York Times takes a closer look at some of the contradictions about the priorities for voters and the most important qualities they are looking for in congressional candidates this election cycle.
    * Congress' poor track record of passing significant legislation means the nation's governors are playing an even more significant role in getting things done for their constituents. Dan Balz of The Washington Post examines a number of tight gubernatorial races which could be indicators of how Americans are feeling toward each political party and reveal possible trends for the future, especially for candidates considering a 2016 White House run.
