    Nature [#3003(] Animal Odd Couples A tiger cub with no mother in sight. A baby hippo. An abandoned meerkat pup. Without nurturing, these infants face certain death. Enter stories of the most unlikely cross-species relationships imaginable: a chimp bottle-feeding a tiger cub; a giant tortoise snuggling a baby hippo; a black crow parenting a meerkat. Aberrations of nature? Instincts gone awry? Does this kind of bonding form only when animals are removed from their natural environments? Or are they evidence of a broad array of emotions among animals? This film will look at these remarkable relationships firsthand, and through caregivers, biologists and animal behaviorists, explore what they suggest about the nature of animal emotions. duration 55:03   SRND51 TVPG (Secondary audio: DVI)

    Nova [#3914H] Mystery of Easter Island A remote, bleak speck of rock in the middle of the Pacific, Easter Island, or Rapa Nui, has mystified the world ever since the first Europeans arrived in 1722. How and why did the ancient islanders build and move nearly 900 giant statues or moai, weighing up to 86 tons? And how did they transform a presumed paradise into a treeless wasteland, bringing ruin upon their island and themselves? Nova explores controversial recent claims that challenge decades of previous thinking about the islanders, who have been accused of everything from ecocide to cannibalism. Among the radical new theories is that the islanders used ropes to "walk" the statues upright, like moving a fridge. With the help of an accurate 15-ton replica statue, a Nova team sets out to test this high-risk, seemingly unlikely theory. duration 55:16   STEREO TVPG

David Pogue meets -- and competes -- with a menagerie of smart critters that challenge preconceived notions about what makes "us" different from "them" expanding our understanding of how animals really think. duration 56:46   STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: none)

    Reconstruction of Asa Carter This program explores the life and legacy of the best-selling novelist of The Rebel Outlaw: Josey Wales (republished in 1975 as Gone to Texas) and The Education of Little Tree (1976). Billed as an autobiographical story about an orphaned Native American boy, The Education of Little Tree was later revealed as a complete fabrication. The author: notorious white supremacist and Ku Klux Klan leader Asa Earl Carter (under the name Forrest Carter), the writer responsible for George Wallace's infamous 1963 "Segregation now! Segregation forever!" speech. Friends, colleagues and members of George Wallace's inner circle provide unprecedented access into the life of this enigmatic man, while scholars and historians reflect on the nature of Carter's identity shift, his place in the history of the civil-rights movement and his legacy. duration 56:46   STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: DVI)
