    Sands of War When the United States decided to first enter World War II in North Africa, General George Patton was tasked with finding a training ground capable of simulating battle conditions. Having grown up in Southern California, Patton chose the desolate Mojave Desert, with its diverse and wide-open landscape, ideal for both individual training and large unit maneuvers. Thus was born the 18,000 square mile Desert Training Center, where one million service men and women would train to enter the battle to win World War II.
    Using both current and rare archival footage, Sands of War recounts the overlooked story of the creation and role of the Desert Training Center against the backdrop of WWII. Narrated by Peter Coyote, and told through the personal experiences of WWII veterans, the program provides a compelling account of the young men and women thrust onto the stage of world conflict.

    Dinosaur Train [#410H] Crystal and King Benefit Concert: Part One and Two * "Crystal and King Benefit Concert: Part One" - When Crystal and the King go for a trip to the Big Pond, they learn that it's being recklessly overfished! They enlist the help of the Pteranodon Family to try to spread the word that if the dinosaurs and pterosaurs aren't more careful, the Big Pond will run out of fish to eat. But when Crystal realizes that nothing they're doing is actually raising awareness of the issue, she decides to organize a HUGE benefit concert, and everyone agrees to pitch in and help (as long as the King doesn't have to perform)!.
    * "Crystal and King Benefit Concert: Part Two" - The "Don't Overfish the Big Pond" Benefit Concert is underway, and it's a HUGE success! But because there's so much to organize, Crystal never finds the time to rehearse her big finale - so when it's time for her to go onstage, she experiences something she's never experienced before - stage fright! Can the kids help Crystal get over her stage fright and get her back onstage, or will the King have to come out of "performance retirement" to help her out?.
    Educational Objectives: Overfishing generally results in a dramatic depletion in the total amount of fish (i.e., biomass). Also, overfishing often causes smaller fish (the prey species of larger fish) to increase in number as the larger predators are removed. If aquatic ecosystems are given a chance to rebound, they often will, as long as the numbers of fish have not been depleted too far.
