    Queen's Palaces [#101Z] Buckingham Palace Buckingham Palace, Windsor Castle and the Palace of Holyroodhouse - these buildings have been part of British royal history for hundreds of years. The Queen's Palaces showcases the art and architecture, the interior decoration and the treasures stored inside these fabulous buildings and reveals the surprising and fascinating stories behind them. As well as telling the story of the building's creation, as Fiona Bruce walks around the rooms and corridors she captures the stories and histories of works of art and fine objects, so that each film marries the chronology of history and the pure delight of a walk around a beautiful interior. duration 51:33   STEREO TVG
  • 2:54 am
    Queen's Palaces [#102Z] Windsor Castle From the bowels of the Castle to the heights of the battlements, Fiona encounters all manner of royal treasures - from the musket ball that killed a naval hero to table decorations in gold and silver and encrusted with jewels; from the triple-headed portrait of a king who lost his head to Queen Mary's Dolls' House with running taps, and a secret garden hidden in a drawer. All of this was almost lost in the disastrous fire of 1992. duration 51:36   STEREO TVG
  • 3:49 am
    Queen's Palaces [#103Z] Holyrood House It is also one of Britain's smallest palaces and yet events at Holyrood have determined the fate of three countries - England, France and Scotland. It was also the last place where a royal prince challenged the right of an English king to sit on the throne. Fiona Bruce discovers remarkable objects from the Royal Collection that are intimately bound to the Palace's turbulent history - from the spectacular Darnley Jewel with its many hidden messages to the cat-and-mouse needlework of a doomed queen. duration 1:10:30   STEREO TVG

    Reveal [#104H] Generation Z: Child Soldiers of the Zetas Imagine a place where kids are given guns and turned into child soldiers. It sounds like something from a far-off civil war. But it is happening right here. In South Texas, drug gangs are taking advantage of children on both sides of the border. Reporter Josiah Hooper investigates the recruitment of teenage assassins. For-profit schools are taking in billions of dollars from the new GI Bill. But what are veterans - and taxpayers -- getting in return? Reporter Aaron Glantz examines the track record of the University of Phoenix, the nation's largest recipient of GI bill money. In oil-rich Qatar, an arid, Middle East mini-state facing shortages of fresh water and extreme challenges in growing food. Reporter Jon Miller shows us how scientists there are conducting ambitious experiments to create more drinking water and make the desert bloom. In an animated story, reporter Michael Montgomery tells how he once, inadvertently, found himself High on the Job, while covering California's growing medical marijuana industry. It's a cautionary tale, both funny and revealing. Call it a "reporter confessional." duration 54:55   STEREO TV14

Curriculum: Northern lights (aka, aurora borealis) are a natural, awesome phenomenon. The origin of the aurora begins when a cloud of gas is ejected from the Sun's surface. When it collides in Earth's atmosphere with oxygen and nitrogen, it produces dazzling auroral light.

Curriculum: The International Space Station (ISS) program is a great global human achievement in international cooperation. Countries work in partnership to support the experiments of scientists on the ISS, including observing space, growing plants in micro-gravity, and recording observations.

    Nature [#3008H] Cold Warriors: Wolves and Buffalo For thousands of years, wolves hunted buffalo across the vast North American plains until the westward settlement of the continent saw the virtual extinction of these vast herds and their eternal predators, the wolves. However, this ancient relationship was not lost altogether and continues uninterrupted in just one location -- on the northern edge of the continent's central plains in a place named Wood Buffalo National Park. Today the ancestors of those ancient buffalo and wolves still engage in epic life and death dramas across this northern land. Packs of wolves up to 30 strong hunt the largest land mammals on the continent -- buffalo. By getting to know a specific pack of wolves and the individuals that make up the pack, we get a sense of how these two animal species (wolves and buffalo) live together in what seems like a forgotten corner of the world. duration 55:16   SRND51 TVPG (Secondary audio: DVI)

    Nova [#4113H] D-Day's Sunken Secrets On June 6, 1944, the Allies launched the biggest armada in history to invade the Normandy beaches and liberate Europe from the Nazis. In less than 24 hours, more than 5000 ships crossed the English Channel, along with thousands of tanks and landing craft and nearly 200,000 men. Throughout the operation hundreds of ships sank running the gauntlet of mines and bunkers, creating one of the world's largest underwater archaeological sites. Now, Nova has exclusive access to a unique collaboration between military historians, archaeologists, and specialist divers to carry out the most extensive survey ever done of the seabed bordering the legendary beachheads. Dive teams, submersibles, and underwater robots discover and identify key examples of the Allied craft that fell victim to German shellfire, mines and torpedoes. The team uses the latest 3D mapping tools to plot the relics on the sea floor. Highlighting the ingenious technology that helped the Allies overcome the German defenses, "D-Day's Sunken Secrets" unfolds a vivid blow-by-blow account of the tumultuous events of D-Day and reveals how the Allies' intricate planning and advanced technology was vital to assure the success of the most ambitious and risky military operation ever launched. duration 1:55:11   STEREO TVPG
